Beating Cleveland has not been an issue for IN, as the Pacers stopped the Cavaliers on Friday for the third time IN three meetings this season. They concluded their four-game homestand with a 3-1 record and will begin a five-game Western Conference road trip on Sunday when they face the Phoenix Suns.
PACERS 97, CAVALIERS 95: Lance Stephenson had 16 points and 11 rebounds, Darren Collison scored 22 points and IN rallied from a 22-point, first-half deficit at Indianapolis.
HORNETS 99, JAZZ 88: Kemba Walker scored 22 points and Frank Kaminsky added 16 to lead Charlotte, at home, to its fourth victory in six games.
"Completely different, completely different dynamic of the game", said DeRozan on Friday when comparing the Cavaliers and Warriors. A 22-0 run early in the first led to a 34-12 score at the end of the quarter. The Cavs can certainly ramp up the effort in the second half of the season and improve some of their defensive woes, but at the moment, the Cavs wouldn't have much to lose on defense if they did play Sullivan.
I am alive, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky speaks out
The Federal Government has refused to obey the ruling of a Federal High Court which ordered their unconditional release in 2016. El-Zakzaky, who leads Nigeria's most popular Shi'ia group, has been in the custody of the SSS since 2015.
Durant had 17 first-half points to help Golden State build its 63-49 half-time lead. His play, coupled with an ineffective stint by Channing Frye, could quiet those who blame Thompson's return from a strained left calf as the main reason for the Cavs' struggles of late, as he replaced Frye in the rotation. 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.
One of the downfalls of Cleveland during that quarter was their 32 percent shooting from the field, while their defense allowed IN to hit for five 3-pointers.
The Cavaliers played better defensively on January 12 in a 97-95 loss to the Pacers in Indianapolis to conclude their five-game road trip at 1-4. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.
Spurs chairman Levy sure he can keep Kane and Alli
Everton's players should not need reminding of their responsibilities on social media, according to manager Sam Allardyce . Allardyce's side are now winless in their last five Premier League games and have lost their last three.
LeBron James isn't throwing his sneakers over the telephone wire just yet, although not for the reason people may think.
The Suns' Devin Booker has taken his game up another notch this season, averaging 24.9 points after a 27-point, nine-assist game against the Rockets on Friday.
This would all be a lot easier if the Cavs knew what LeBron James planned to do once he becomes a free agent this summer, but that answer isn't coming any time soon.
LeBron had his highest scoring game since 2014 this season against the Washington Wizards this season, and he is still showing he is playing prime basketball. "That's all. He's a little dirty. So, I don't know".
Alexis Sanchez doesn't want to play boring football at Manchester United
At a general level, what I can say is that myself and the Manchester United board, we do not believe a lot in the January market. Everyone is onto what you are trying to do in the market, and buying the best players costs an very bad lot of money.
