He was also slapped with a technical foul after losing his cool and retaliating against Lance Stephenson with 7min 53sec left in the game.

The Pacers' offense was anemic for much of that stretch, going scoreless for a 6:58 stretch.

The Pacers also mounted a strong close to the half, outscoring Cleveland 15-7 over the final 5:30 to make it a 14-point game heading into the break. In addition to that, he said that he doesn't feel like a 33-year-old who's now halfway through his 15th season in the league. Perhaps he sees his team's weaknesses and is trying to overcome them with his own masterful play.

The Cleveland Cavaliers gave away a 22-point lead in a shock loss to the Indiana Pacers in the National Basketball Association on Friday.

Stephenson had plenty of help.

Collison led the Pacers with 22 points.

The four-time MVP wasn't amused.

"Lance is just a little dirty, that's all".

"You could win a hundred straight games and face the Warriors and there are still challenges", James said. It's the guy who laughs. "He played well, though".

IN clawed back into the game with 5 3s in the third quarter. McMillan let him play the rest of the way.

While no Pacer defender attempting to cut James off is notable, the reaction of the Cavs bench is as well, given the team's recent struggles. Oladipo sank a 3-pointer to give the Pacers a 96-95 lead with 2:10 to go.

But at least in the finale they had a chance to win. There are a lot of fans coming out to support him. 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". Kevin Love added 21 points and 10 rebounds for Cleveland, which has lost three in a row.

In Sacramento, Tyrone Wallace intercepted a pass at midcourt and drove in for a dunk with 10.9 seconds left, moments after what looked like a costly turnover by Lou Williams, and the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Sacramento Kings 121-115 after blowing a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. He missed a wide-open 3 with 1:42 to go. Cleveland had a 39-18 scoring advantage on fast-break points. IN has won three of its last four and has beaten Cleveland three times in one season for the first time since 2013-14. They dropped in 32 points while holding the Cavaliers to just 16, giving them the 76-74 lead going into the fourth. IN is 17-5 when making 10 or more 3s in a game.

The Cavs are without Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade as both players are resting.

While Rose and Shumpert continue recovering from injuries, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue made a decision to give Thomas and Wade extra rest because of the back-to-backs.

"We played so hard on the defensive end", Stephenson told Fox Sports Indiana after the game. Turner has been out with an injured right elbow.

James said he'll trust his gut when it's time to move on. He set his career-high in the first half with 18. "We've got to try to pick it back up and find it". Regardless of your age, if you can play you can still play.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' five-game road trip ended on a low and there may be no home comforts awaiting.
