Pacers rally from 22-point deficit to beat Cavaliers 97-95

Pacers rally from 22-point deficit to beat Cavaliers 97-95

Spencer Dinwiddie hit the go-ahead layup with 11 seconds remaining and scored seven of his 20 points in the final 2 ½ minutes of the fourth quarter as Brooklyn beat host Atlanta.

Watch the Los Angeles Lakers, who will be on a free-agent spending spree this summer and might want to deal now. That's true and Cleveland likely won't consider Toronto a real threat until they provide a post-season scare.

My ask of the media here is to look past the simple narratives, the easy headlines that nearly write themselves about another bad, lazy Cleveland loss where they didn't put forth the effort, or about the regular season Raptors who disappear in April.

Chris Paul was one of six Rockets to score in double figures as he contributed 25 points in a 112-95 win at Phoenix.

That's why the trade deadline decisions will be so interesting this year. The Cavs, meanwhile, continue to look very much like a beatable team, especially without Isaiah Thomas.

Asked if he had ever seen a player with a persona quite like Stephenson's, Oladipo said, "No".

And they're 34-9 entering Saturday, still leading the National Basketball Association. Although they have yet to master it like Golden State, Toronto's 29-11 record is a franchise best at the 40-game mark of a season. His 3.2 long-range attempts per game this season are a career-high, but a low number compared to other star shooting guards like James Harden (10.6 threes per game), Klay Thompson (7.5) and Bradley Beal (6.5). Seeing the way the Pacers rally from nearly every hole they dig for themselves this season gives the fans hope.


"I've got a 10-year-old boy, 3-year-old girl". Oladipo is averaging 24.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists, and second-year player Sabonis has broken out, averaging 12.5 points and 8.0 rebounds.

Watch the rebounding race: The Clippers' DeAndre Jordan (15.1) leads Detroit's Andre Drummond (15.0) by the slimmest of margins.

Don't criticize LeBron James for caring.

No longer the league's No. 1 losers, the Philadelphia 76ers are right in the mix for an East playoff spot.

They need to nip this in the bud before it snowballs even further. The Sixers are only 9-9 in Philadelphia this season. Toronto is looking ready to prove that they are serious title contenders, and that their doubters are wrong for they have learned from their experiences over the past couple of seasons.

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins had monster games in leading New Orleans past visiting Portland. The Raptors, looks like the best Raptors team of this era, with DeMar DeRozan playing at an all-star level.

The win moves the Pacers to 3-0 against Cleveland this year, and keeps IN in the 8th slot IN the East a conference so jumbled that the Pacers are just 2.5 games out of 4th, and 4 games behind Cleveland for the 3 seed.
