The Indiana Pacers can't stop making comebacks

APTOPIX-Cavaliers-Pacers-Basketball-2

They jumped out to a quick 6-4 lead at the 9:46 mark but the Cavaliers scored 22 unanswered points from that point. If James hadn't stepped out on the baseline drive, we might not be talking about a win. While talking about the possibility of retirement, James quipped that he couldn't do so just yet, because "I've got too many sneakers to sell".

LeBron James' run-ins with Lance Stephenson led to a fourth quarter technical foul on James in Indiana's win over Cleveland.

But comparing James' late misses with his previous heroics or delving into Cleveland missing out on Stephenson are really just distractions from the bigger picture here.

The Cavs were outscored 84-61 over the final three quarters of their seventh loss in nine games, 97-95 at Indiana. Seeing the way the Pacers rally from nearly every hole they dig for themselves this season gives the fans hope. Their struggled didn't carry over as they went 10-of-21 (47.6%) from the perimeter against the Cavs.

PACERS 97, CAVALIERS 95: Lance Stephenson had 16 points and 11 rebounds, Darren Collison scored 22 points and IN rallied from a 22-point, first-half deficit at Indianapolis.

NY sues BP, Shell to 'protect city from climate change'
In total, the city's five pension funds hold roughly USD5 billion in the securities of over 190 fossil fuel companies. The mayor's office also hinted at recent disclosures about what the oil industry knew about climate change, and when.

But at least they competed. Which is what Lue was trying to address when he made his cryptic "agenda" comment after the Toronto game. But I'm sure whoever he's speaking of or speaking to with that, he'll address it, as we usually do. It's a team thing. Once again we're back to the beginning of the season, and we've just got to find a way to get out of it. A guy goes to help and then you help him. "I'm very pleased that we got a good contest on it, but not pleased that he actually got a look off".

"We've got to be better, we know that", he said.

Chris Paul was one of six Rockets to score in double figures as he contributed 25 points in a 112-95 win at Phoenix.

The Cavs will be best served to leave this portion of the season in the past, as well. IN took the lead for good on a 3-pointer from the top of the key by Victor Oladipo with 2:10 to play. Talk about a welcome home gift. It's going to start with us, and everybody getting back to what we were doing when we were playing good ball.

"He's an outstanding player, you can't just play him soft and regular", Stephenson said of James during his post-game media availability. Another challenge. Another chance for James to recreate one of his heroic moments.
