National Basketball Association roundup: Pacers fight back to beat Cavaliers

National Basketball Association roundup: Pacers fight back to beat Cavaliers

Suddenly, the same team that had gone on a stretch of 18 wins in 19 games has been replaced by another wearing the same jerseys that's now lost six of its last eight.

Kristaps Porzingis scored 17 points for NY. Korver is what he's always been: A great 3-point shooter and physically limited defender who nonetheless plays intelligently at that end of the floor. Despite the loss, IN saw four players tally 15-plus points, including Victor Oladipo's team-leading 26 points.

Fred VanVleet came off the bench to score 22 points as Toronto (29-11) improved to a 15-2 at home despite playing on Thursday without starters Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka. The Raptors have scored 125 or more points a franchise-record nine times this season.

Bradley Beal scored 27 points while John Wall added 25 and nine assists in Washington's 121-103 home rout of NY.

That DeRozan had the lowest point total of those six players was the ideal example of how Toronto hopes to transform itself into a potent post-season threat. If Cleveland holds that percentage, they will break their previous mark of.805 from the line, set during the 1991-92 season. That stretch included a 130-103 rout by Washington on December 23.

Love wasn't as bad as the other two, but he only dropped in 10 points and missed six of his eight field goals. Bismack Biyombo finished 8 of 9 from the field for a career-high 21 points.

Anthony Davis returned from injury with a bang after his 36 points saw the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Portland Trailblazers 119-113. It's the first time he's ever had consecutive losses of more than 25 points.

Perhaps the Cavs are simply bored, don't care right now and will once again pull it all together and cruise through the Eastern Conference playoffs, where they have gone 12-2, 12-2 and 12-1 over the last three seasons. His 3-pointer - similar to the one he banked in on the right wing to force overtime in a game against the Washington Wizards last February - caromed off the back rim this time instead.

Additionally, the Wine & Gold have been solid from the free-throw during the first half of this campaign. That's not a complaint at all as his 19 points only trailed Collison's 22.

Cavaliers: Kevin Love had 21 points and 10 assists and Jeff Green added 13 points, all in the first half.

Stephenson entered the game with 5:52 left in the third quarter when 6-foot-11 center Domantas Sabonis picked up his fourth foul. It's going to start with us and just everybody getting back to what we were doing when we were playing good ball.

Nikola Jokic added 14 points and nine rebounds for Denver, which played without guard Gary Harris, who was excused for personal reasons. Shumpert's only played in 13 games this season, and counting on him to have any significant impact would be foolish. Barton started in his place.
