Cavs collapse as Pacers stage 22-point rally

APTOPIX-Cavaliers-Pacers-Basketball

By now, you'd think Pacer fans would stop writing their team off after a slow start.

Overcoming a 20-0 run is rarely a recipe for success, but the Indiana Pacers had the right chefs in the kitchen on Friday night.

After falling into a 22-point deficit after a dismal first quarter, IN mounted a magical rally against their long-time nemesis LeBron James and the Cavaliers, taking the lead again IN the closing seconds of the third quarter and moved IN front for good on Victor Oladipo's 3-pointer with 2:10 remaining IN the fourth quarter.

Valanciunas almost had a double-double in the first quarter, when he totaled nine points and nine rebounds in a little over six minutes because of foul trouble.

The Pacers have won 3 of 4 and improved to 3-0 against Cleveland, which has lost three straight. 26-13 against everybody else. We do know he's capable, as he scored 52 points earlier this season. "That will be a deciding factor in how long I want to play". We showed some resilience.

In the grand scheme, this means little, but after years of trolling LeBron, it was good to see Stephenson finally get what he wanted. "Credit to my teammates for a great overall team win". Domantas Sabonis struggled with his shot but still contributed a double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds. LeBron James is averaging 27.2 points and nine assists while Kevin Love is averaging 19.4 points and 9.6 rebounds.

MVP: Lance Stephenson, but not because he annoyed LeBron. James was called for a crucial technical foul for shoving Stephenson after a play. "So we got to be better".

In the meantime, the Cavaliers can't just wait for the turnaround to happen, because it has happened so many times before. "We've got to try to pick it back up and find it". It's always an emotional game when we play Cleveland. I just felt it was the time.

McMillan and the Pacers were fortunate that LeBron's final shot missed. Their lack of home games through 39 games will aid Toronto later on in the season, as they will have the comfort of having several extended home stands. Collison hit one of two free throws with 1.4 seconds remaining to make it 97-95. 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). The coaches can not miss that.

By contrast, the Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.7 points per game) and three-point shooting (39 per cent).

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.

It certainly doesn't help that the Pacers were 1-of-18 from 3-point range in the Miami loss.
