Cavs players have grumbled that LeBron James is slowing ball movement

This time, he even got into LeBron James' head.

He was also slapped with a technical foul after losing his cool and retaliating against Lance Stephenson with 7min 53sec left in the game. "That's not how the game is played, and you don't cheat the game".

The Pacers have won both games against the Cavaliers this season, including a 106-102 victory in their last matchup.

"Talking about regular season (games) and playoffs, it's two different things", DeRozan said during his post-game scrum.

"You can never overlook them, underlook them no matter how they play, no matter what the score of a game is", DeRozan says.

Stephenson had plenty of help.

Darren Collison led the Pacers in scoring with 22 points followed by Victor Oladipo with 19 points. And we can't afford that right now, the way we're playing ball. They led Game Three of their First-Round series against the Cavs by 26-points. It was interesting because IN had a poor period regarding scoring efficiency, but their production from the free throw line played a key role IN being the difference. Lance continued to pester LeBron throughout the night until he just finally had enough.

"They're still a good team, they still play hard, the young guys play hard", Lue said in pregame. "He played well, though".

While murky in its meaning, Lue's "agenda" comment may light a fire under some Cavs' players. McMillan let him play the rest of the way. "That was the message tonight before the game and ultimately that's what happened". IN shut out the Cavs over the final 3:57 and twice stopped James when he could have given the Cavs the lead. And they came out flat in the third quarter, getting outscored 32-16, when they could have put the Pacers away and salvaged a 2-3 trip. Then, after Collison made a free throw to give the Pacers a 97-95 lead, James' desperation shot from beyond the arc rattled off the rim at the buzzer.

There's a better chance Dwane Casey and his staff coach the East all-stars in Los Angeles with this Raptors win.

His son, LeBron James Jr., is already considered a potential National Basketball Association star at just 13 and James said he doesn't like missing many of his games and that will factor into his decision about how much longer to play. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.7 points on 50.7 percent shooting and allowing 106.6 points on 43.6 percent shooting.

Anthony Davis scored 36 points and added nine rebounds in the Pelicans' 119-113 win over the Trail Blazers, but his team-mate DeMarcus Cousins was as good or better with 24 points, 19 boards and eight assists. "I was surprised (James reacted)".
