Back in Indianapolis, James had 27 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds and was called for a technical foul after reacting to Stephenson's jab by shoving him in the chest.

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. But Friday night, the circumstances-and the outcome - were a little different. He's clearing 10.5 rebounds a game off the defensive glass. As a result, IN faced a 24-6 deficit with 4:48 remaining IN the first quarter. To that end, Shams Charania of The Vertical brought word on Friday that the Cavs could move Thompson, though only in "the right deal". "The Cleveland game is important because it's a conference game, a team we're going to be in a fight with, but it won't make or break our season".

Indiana, behind Victor Oldaipo and Lance Stephenson, began chipping away throughout the second quarter and broke through in the third.

The Boston Celtics climbed off the mat at London's O2 Arena, rallying from a 22-point first-half deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-103.

Thomas has returned successfully from his hip surgery, but still is trying to find his rhythm on offense shooting a poor 5-for-23 over his past two outings.

Durant's mid-range jumper gave Golden State a 96-90 lead before he hit an open 3 with 2:15 left to cap the run with a three-possession lead.

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).

These were not the Cavs from Thursday night, an old, slow, disjointed group that threw in the towel shortly after the opening tap. One call DeRozan questioned was his being whistled for turning the ball over on a wild scramble with three seconds remaining.

Milwaukee played some of its best ball with Antetokounmpo on the bench.

Frustration got the better of James, as he was captured by the TNT cameras in an animated yelling match with Cavs player development coach Phil Handy in the first half. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.

After the game, which ended 133-99, James said the Cavs were back at square one.

Final score- IN 97 Cleveland 95.

The Cleveland Cavaliers let a 22-point lead slip as they were edged by the Indiana Pacers 97-95 - their third loss on the bounce.

The Cavs are reluctant to do that not knowing LeBron James' plans for next season. But Jordan, who's averaging 11.8 points and 14.9 rebounds per game, actually might be an improvement over him. There's going to be games where it's going to be like that, there's going to be games where the shooting is opening up and coach wants to space the floor with four out and have (LeBron) attack the rim. Lance continued to pester LeBron throughout the night until he just finally had enough.
