Irving leads Cavaliers to rare win at Indiana, 111-106 in OT
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana- Kyrie Irving scored 25 points and LeBron James had 24 points, 12 rebounds and six assists to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Indiana Pacers 111-106 in overtime on Monday night.
James only scored seven points after halftime, but it was enough to give the Cavaliers their fifth straight win under new coach Tyronn Lue — and their first win in Indy in six years.
George Hill matched his season-high with 23 points, while Myles Turner had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Indiana.
The Pacers controlled most of the second half, but James’ layup with 1:16 left in regulation gave Cleveland a 94-93 lead.
Irving’s 13-footer with 3:01 left gave the Cavs a 103-100 lead and they never trailed again.
