The Cavaliers led by as many as 16 points in the first half before the Pacers stormed back to take a lead in the fourth quarter.

    Poor execution by both teams in that fourth quarter and a confusing call on Lance Stephenson on that attempted jump ball. Not great.

    Cleveland has given the Pacers some chances here with poor offense, but Indiana has not taken advantage. Indy needs a miracle to pull this one out.

    The pacers didn’t close the game... and it will likely cost them the series now

    LeBron had two big-time drives for layups in the last couple minutes. Cleveland is in the driver's seat here. James now has 32 points in the game and eight in the fourth quarter.

    Indiana's defense has been fantastic in this third quarter, despite the Cavs' made threes in the last few minutes. Most of them have been contested well and late in the shot clock.
