National Basketball Association roundup: Pacers fight back to beat Cavaliers

The Pacers beat the Cavaliers for a 3rd time in 3 tries this season by erasing a 22-point deficit and finishing off a 3-1 homestead.

"The guys did a great job, " said DeRozan, who scored 13 points with eight assists and three rebounds.

In Sacramento, Tyrone Wallace intercepted a pass at midcourt and drove in for a dunk with 10.9 seconds left, moments after what looked like a costly turnover by Lou Williams, and the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Sacramento Kings 121-115 after blowing a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. Kevin Durant was the top scorer for the Warriors with 26 points. And for approximately the 700th time, Lance Stephenson and LeBron James got into it. James was eventually awarded a technical when it looks like Stephenson goaded James into pushing him after Stephenson had some "incidental" contact with Stephenson.

Thompson is having a down year by his standards, and especially by someone who makes $16M per year.

"He's just born ready", said teammate Victor Oladipo, referring to Stephenson's "Born Ready" Brooklyn playground nickname. That's why he's Lance.

The Pacers were badly in need of an improved shooting performance from the perimeter because they have been truly struggling in this area lately.

Stephenson on the road has not been almost as dynamic as Stephenson at home.

The Houston Rockets, playing without guard James Harden due to a hamstring injury, had 27 points off the bench from Gerald Green and 21 more from Clint Capela in a 116-98 romp at Orlando.

Anthony Davis swallowed up the Portland Trail Blazers with a dominant outing that left him with 36 points and nine rebounds.

Sam Allardyce takes blame for 'shock' Everton performance
Apart from Wayne Rooney having a header ruled out for offside, at no stage did they ever look capable of doing something. I've not seen it since I got here but I've seen it now, and it's probably what was apparent before I got here".

MINNEAPOLIS - Karl-Anthony Towns fell one assist shy of his second career triple-double, scoring 23 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in Minnesota's victory over NY. "With how good we really are, we can't allow these types of games to happen".

"Completely different, completely different dynamic of the game", said DeRozan on Friday when comparing the Cavaliers and Warriors.

"We know that. But until we play better defensively, I think offensively sharing the basketball, everyone on the same page - and if guys have agendas, we've got to get rid of our agendas and play the right way".

"We've got to be better", Lue said, per ESPN.

According to Shams Charania of The Verticle, the Cleveland Cavaliers have chosen to make big center Tristan Thompson available on the trade market. The two combined to shoot 65.7 per cent from the floor. For much of the fourth quarter, the Pacers went with a lineup that featured Thaddeus Young at center, and Bojan Bogdanovic and Stephenson at forward. Nothing has been enough - nothing is working.

"Play harder", he said. "We were able to get stops, rebounds and score with that group". He has only played in 21 games thus far and he's posting the worst numbers of his career across the board.

Thomas, who will sit out at IN because he has not been cleared to play both nights of a back-to-back, finished with four points, two rebounds and three assists, hitting 2-of-15 field goals and 0-for-6 from long range.

"It's my 10th year", he said.
