Cavaliers-Pacers Recap: Indiana Keeps Cleveland Down With Epic Comeback

14 January, 2018, 15:31 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • LeBron James

The Raptors will reach the midway point of their schedule Saturday with their 41st game, and their 29 wins are the most they have had half way through a season in franchise history.

At Minnesota, the game was virtually over when the Timberwolves jumped out to a 20-4 lead on the Cavs.

It started out looking like the kind of game the Cavaliers have been in dire need of in recent weeks. The Cavs will look to get their redemption on their Western Conference foes though on the 16th, but the King knows it's no easy task.

Isaiah Thomas returned to the court after missing the beginning of the season with a hip injury.

Indiana's best period of basketball came during the third quarter.

Marvin Williams scored 15 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 12 for Charlotte, which won despite an off night for Dwight Howard, who scored two first-half points. But then a 16-2 run by the Pacers gave IN the lead heading into the final period.

Outside of James - 26 points on 9-for-16 shooting - Cleveland's offense was anemic. Powell and VanVleet put up eight points each, with Siakam reaching double digits; the crowd, growing more excited with every dunk and rebound, gave Poeltl and Brown a rousing sendoff when they subbed out with five minutes left in the quarter. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.

"I'm going to say this and we're going to move forward because it's over", Lue said before the Cavs played the Indiana Pacers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to IN after two-consecutive annihilations by the Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 23 points to lead the Bucks.

After halftime, IN did a much better job IN limiting turnovers and getting back on defense. He frustrated him enough at one point to provoke a shove from LeBron late in the game.

"Lance is just a little dirty, that's all". I've known since school, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught, it's the guy who laughs. "He played well, though".

LeBron needed 25 shots to score 27 points and the reeling Cavs have lost eight of nine on the road.

This time, the Pacers handed Cleveland a third straight confounding loss. So we've gotta give it up when one makes a tough, crucial, deciding call against the NBA's biggest star in a game his team wants badly. "Nevertheless, the superstar talent of Oklahoma City's Paul George or New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins, each deserving of that Nets first-rounder, won't see the light in this trade market as of right now, league sources said, as those teams are fully focused on winning with each respective player".

IN will try to win their fourth in five games when they take on the Suns in Phoenix Sunday night (8 PM ET).
