Cavs seek first win of season over Pacers

LeBron James LeBron James

When LeBron James resorts to coaching during a timeout, this no longer qualifies as a Cavaliers' lull.

But Cleveland was indeed competitive for a change, almost rebounding from a season-worst 34-point loss Thursday in Toronto (and 28-point loss Monday in Minneapolis). It was lethal against a Cleveland team that prefers to set up plays in the halfcourt. Somehow, the Warriors find ways to care that the Cavs have not. They have won just 2 of their six games to start the year, and have lost their last three. They're a big, physical team.

Lance Stephenson's 16 points and 11 rebounds, along with Darren Collison's 22 points, saw the Pacers register a third win in four and make it three-out-of-three against the Cavaliers. However, their defense was great as they contained the Cavs to shooting just 40.9% from the field and 11.1% on 3-pointers.

"Oh man, oh man, thanks JV", said VanVleet with a laugh, taking the sign from Valanciunas. We got history. I already know that.

Cleveland, which lost its previous two games by a combined 62 points, was outscored 84-61 over the final three quarters and wound up blowing the lead nearly exactly nine months after the Cavs rallied from a 26-point deficit to beat IN in the playoffs.

"The way Golden State moves the ball, I mean, Cleveland moves the ball well but Golden State is different", said DeRozan. "That changes the whole dynamic". The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.7 points on 50.7 percent shooting and allowing 106.6 points on 43.6 percent shooting.

IN ranks 14th in assists per game (22.7) while Cleveland ranks last in assists allowed per game (25.8). Since the 4-time All-Star asked the team for a trade last July, he and James have traded passive-aggressive barbs on social media, while also extending the occasional virtual olive branch to one another.

They narrowly avoided a collapse like the Celtics game by giving the Cavaliers a chance at getting a good look to end the game.

The Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors meet Saturday in National Basketball Association action at the Air Canada Centre.

IN (22-20) will attempt to turn that trend around starting with a game against Phoenix on Sunday, the first of the Pacers' five-game road trip.

"We're in a funk". "It's just been a process of us learning a right rhythm, finding a comfort within it". "We came out tentative for whatever reason".

According to Casey, having success with the new system helps but isn't everything.

Casey said he sees improvement in his team.

"You're dealing with human behaviour and human behaviour is unpredictable sometimes".

Lowry was out with a bruised tailbone.
