Cavs Lose to Pacers

The Cavaliers have a signature quarter this season, and it’s not one to write home about.

For the umpteenth time, the Wine and Gold played a poor third quarter and the Indiana Pacers made them pay. The visitors left the Q with a 111-90 victory.

It was not even that close.

Cleveland entered the third quarter trailing by 15 points, and things got worse. The Cavs only managed 17 points in that frame as the Pacers increased the lead to 25.

Gerald Green scored 20 points and Tyler Hansbrough, starting in place of the injured David West, had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead the way. West had to sit out the game due to a lower back strain sustained on Saturday night.

The Cavalier injuries are becoming a real concern. All star Kyrie Irving missed his 4th game in a row due to a sprained left shoulder. Dion Waiters did not see any action after the first quarter because of a sore left knee.

C.J. Miles led the Cavs with 21 points. At one point in the game, the visitors held a 28-point lead.
