The Cleveland Cavaliers put together a lovely performance against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday in the fourth quarter to tie after a double digit deficit entering the quarter. Unfortunately, they weren't quite as good in overtime and a late rally was lost as they fell to the Pacers in overtime, 104-98. They will get their chance for revenge as they head to Indiana for a rematch on Friday.
It's just been that sort of year for the Cavaliers, who are still injured and struggling to put together games late in the season, especially with their star rookie Kyrie Irving out. Cleveland is clearly playing out the stretch at this point and working for a top draft pick to add to their young team.
The Pacers will have something to play for as well, with a win clinching a playoff spot for the second season in a row in Indiana.
The game will be at Bankers Life Fieldhouse at 7:00 p.m. ET.
