Pacers rally past Cavs, road Warriors extend streak

Call it a dumpster fire.

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost for the seventh time in 10 games on Thursday, suffering a humiliating 133-99 loss to the Toronto Raptors. The moment was posted on Twitter by the National Basketball Association on TNT.

When Indiana Pacers coach Nate McMillan went small Friday night, Lance Stephenson came up big.

After getting humiliated on the boards against LeBron's old team, the Miami Heat, the Raptors completely turned the tables, outrebounding the Heat by 28 in setting a season-high with 63 boards.

The Golden State Warriors look for another victory after winning eight of their last 10 games.

Lowry was out for a second game with a bruised tailbone.

Those circumstances didn't seem to faze the Raptors, who have won six of their last seven despite playing their third game in four nights.

The Cavs led 58-44 at half-time and looked set to stop their recent dip in form after heavy losses to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors in the past week.

Simmons had 15 points, three assists, two rebounds, two steals and two blocks as the 76ers let a 22-point first half lead slip. Jeff Green added 13 points, Jae Crowder 11 and Kevin Love contributed 10 points and nine rebounds. "It's going to be a whole different type of game and we have to be ready for that".

Conte: Tiredness was a factor against Leicester
Gary Cahill has been substituted off in the first half of Chelsea's clash with Leicester City with an apparent hamstring injury. Conte maintains that the team struggles right now are not about tactics, but fatigue instead.

Whatever the reason, the Cavs were inconsistently consistent.

LeBron James was not a happy camper after losing back-to-back games by more than 25 points for the first time in his career.

"I should have known, I've known since school, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught, it's the guy who laughs", James said.

Stephenson had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, who improved to 22-20 for the season in front of a crowd of 17,900 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse arena.

One of the few bright spots for Cleveland was Tristan Thompson, back in his hometown, contributing eight points and eight rebounds in 23 minutes. A 22-0 run early in the first led to a 34-12 score at the end of the quarter. IN covered as a 3-point underdog and the game finished with a total of 208 points, which was 13 points below the projected point total of 221 points. He frustrated him enough at one point to provoke a shove from LeBron late in the game.

Thomas, who will sit out at IN because he has not been cleared to play both nights of a back-to-back, finished with four points, two rebounds and three assists, hitting 2-of-15 field goals and 0-for-6 from long range.

"We've got to be better", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

"If guys have agendas", Lue said, "we've got to get rid of our agendas and play the right way".

"It doesn't change, you could win 100 straight games then face the Warriors, it's still a challenge".
