Indiana Pacers Can’t Quite Beat the Cleveland Cavaliers


“You have to come out and compete, no matter how tough the season is, no matter how many back-to-backs or three in four nights we have.”…

With talks of adversity circling around the Cavs, their leader, LeBron James, said that this is nothing and the real adversity has yet to come. “We know they’re going to remember this game and we’ll be prepared Friday when we play them”.
Irving had 16 at that point and Love had 11, but the rest of the team had 16 on 6-for-23 shooting.
That’s when officials reviewed George’s shot and correctly disallowed it. Instead of being down four, the Cavs were within one, and they took the lead when James (33 points, five rebounds, four assists, five turnovers) scored on the ensuing possession.
ORLANDO, Florida – Rookie Mario Hezonja dunked four seconds into his first National Basketball Association start, finishing with 13 points, and Orlando led all the way in a victory over Philadelphia.
He’s only shot 42.2 percent in two games against the Pacers (31-28) this season but got to the free-throw line 24 times in a pair of tight Cavaliers wins.
“We’re building some good things from our defensive thinking”. We damn sure weren’t playing defense.
DALLAS – Chandler Parsons scored 29 points and Dallas started fast in its first game since getting booed by the home crowd during a bad opening half, beating Minnesota.
Wall finished with 21 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds in the 113-99 win; Irving posted a game-high 28 points to go along with six dimes.
Boston trailed for most of the game, but found its footing in the opening minutes of the fourth and used a 9-3 run to take its first lead of the second half. Guard Bradley Beal had 17 points. Budinger made 5 of his 6 shots while grabbing 4 rebounds, a steal, a block, and this powerful putback slam.
In the third quarter, it was Otto Porter’s turn to shine as the Wizards put the game away.
Trey Lyles had 18 points and 10 rebounds for Utah, which has dropped three in a row. Luol Deng scored 15 points and Johnson finished with 12. Toronto’s Kyle Lowry had a career-high 43 points, including the final points that brought Toronto to a two-point lead, as the Raptors went on to win their 10th consecutive game at home. It may be wise to bet hard with IN, and then add some live IN play bets throughout the remainder of the game.
J.R. Smith, who had 8 points and 4 rebounds for the Cavaliers felt like the team needs to make changes in the final stretch of the season if they are serious about aspiring for a championship.
“Obviously they’re ahead of us, but I do feel like we’re pretty evenly matched with anybody in the East”, Vogel said. James will be motivated to get his team up for this game since they lost two straight. For me, as a maturing young player in this league, I know what we have and the opportunity we have in order to be something special.
