Pacers beat the Cavs again in another thriller

Frustration seemed to boil over for the Cavs in the first quarter Thursday, when TNT cameras captured James in a heated discussion with Cleveland player development coach Phil Handy during a timeout. It most certainly didn't go that way. They continued to chip away a bit at Cleveland's lead and managed to cut the deficit to 58-44 at the end of the second quarter. DeRozan knows LeBron James and company will be out for vengeance next time around, and he said it's on the Raptors to be prepared.

"It gives us a lot of confidence, but it's a long season, we've got a lot more games to go", said Stephenson. It resulted in a technical foul on James. "That's all. He's a little dirty". "He's a little dirty". While talking about the possibility of retirement, James quipped that he couldn't do so just yet, because "I've got too many sneakers to sell". "So they caught me on the retaliation, so - but he played well tonight".

About five minutes later, Oladipo came through and hit the biggest shot of the night. The Pacers rank 25th in the National Basketball Association with a free throw attempt (FTA) rate of 0.178, while Cleveland ranks first in FTA rate allowed (0.160). J.R. Smith, Jose Calderon and James all missed shots following that possession. Cleveland ranks 16th in second chance points allowed per game (12.7). "Luckily, he stepped out of bounds". "Live and you learn".

He's referring to this no-call on a game-winner by Giannis Antetokounmpo against the Oklahoma City Thunder from two weeks ago.

Behind Darren Collison (22 points on 9-of-11 shooting) and Victor Oladipo (19 points), the Pacers' backcourt made up for the absence of Myles Turner and a struggling Domatnas Sabonis from the field.

Indeed, Stephenson - whom the Cavs could have signed last season to a 10-day contract after working him out in a midseason free agent minicamp - put up 16 points, 11 rebounds and four assists off the bench.

Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie came up one rebound short of a triple-double with 20 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in Brooklyn's 110-105 win over the Hawks.

Pacers fans had to love seeing their team overcome the Cavs, but to make the show even better, Lance Stephenson was up to some of his old tricks with LeBron James.

Fred VanVleet scored a career-high 22 points for Toronto, Jonas Valanciunas had 15 points and a season-high 18 rebounds and the Raptors overcame the absences of two starters. That was important after Jordan limped off the court with an ankle injury after scoring on a dunk with 5:15 left in the first half. Unfortunately, the Magic weren't able to secure the victory.

Bradley Beal and John Wall each scored 30 points as Washington snapped a two-game losing streak with a win over visiting Orlando.

The Cavaliers have been outscored by an average of 11.0 points in their last five games.
