Indiana Pacers Game Recap: Running Out of Gas

They've won three games when trailing by at least 16 points, and have made several other great comebacks that fell just short.
James had one assist - yes, one - on Thursday, to go with his game-high 26 points.
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. This is now their seventh loss in the last 10 games and the team is now starting to drift further away from the top of the Eastern Conference.
The Raptors look just as likely as the Celtics to challenge the Cavs' dominance in the East, as they beat them senseless even without Ibaka and Lowry, as DeMar DeRozan continues to prove that even without being the most versatile star in the National Basketball Association, he's one of the league's most unstoppable weapons. "But we didn't exert enough in the third quarter and they got back in the game".
Oladipo made the free throw to extend Indiana's lead to 84-82. By the end of the half, it was down to 14-points, 58-44.
But if a player like Jordan, Paul George or DeMarcus Cousins becomes available, expect Thompson to be the marquee player leaving the Cavs. With 2:10 left and the Pacers down two, he launched a 26-footer that tickled the bottom of the net, putting IN up by one.
Cleveland got off to a strong start and led 34-12 after the first quarter, and LeBron James looked like he was on a mission to squash a Pacers team with less talent. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.
The Cavs are reluctant to do that not knowing LeBron James' plans for next season. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 25 points and 4.2 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 16.2 points and seven assists.
"I was surprised", Stephenson said about LeBron getting a tech. "That's all. He's a little dirty". "I know what I need to do, just play and be myself". I've known since school, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught, it's the guy who laughs.
