INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- In the second night of a back to back, the Cavaliers looked to snap a 3-game losing skid. After returning from injury yesterday, Kevin Love sat out today as he is slowly making a full recovery, and newly acquired Brandon Knight made his Cavalier debut.
Indiana jumped out to a 30-17 lead in the first quarter, and never looked back, cruising to a 105-90 victory. The Pacers outplayed the Cavaliers in every aspect of the game, as they out rebounded the Cavs by 13 rebounds, 8 more assists, and committed 3 less turnovers. Bojan Bogdanovic had the hot hand for the Pacers, lighting up the Cavs for 23 points on 9-17 shooting. Darren Collison was as consistent as ever, scoring 18 points and dropping 9 dimes.
One day after setting a career-high in rebounds, Larry Nance Jr continued his dominance in the paint, recoring a double-double with 16 points and 10 boards. Coming off of back-to--back 27 point performances, Collin Sexton cooled off a bit, as he put up 16 points on 6-14 shooting from the field. Jordan Clarkson led all scorers, scoring 18 points off of the bench.
The Cavaliers will look to get back to their winning ways on Monday night, asa they will take on the New York Knicks. Tip-off is set for 7:00 PM ET at Quicken Loans Arena.
