It got dicey late, as the Cleveland Cavaliers went 6-12 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter, allowing the Indiana Pacers to keep the game just close enough to uncomfortable. The two teams played opposite styles, with the Cavs outscoring the Pacers 58-26 in the paint and the Pacers making 19 three-pointers vs. just 6 for the Cavs.
The game was tied for a brief moment in the fourth quarter and Cleveland’s lead remained in the four to seven point range for much of the quarter. Sunday marked Love’s fifth consecutive game of 20 points or more.
The low point for Cleveland was guard Isaac Okoro leaving the game with an injury in the first half.
