Pacers don't have finishing kick this time as Cavs even series

Insider: Lance baits LeBron (again) but controversial late call goes against Pacers

But the Cavs hung on to an 80-78 lead after three quarters as Korver scored eight points, including his first two 3-pointers of the night.

The Cavs led by 17 points at half-time of Game 3 before coughing up the lead and it was much of the same in Game 4.

"Two", James correctly asserted, as the Pacers had been leading the Cavs 91-89 with 6:12 remaining in the fourth quarter when he was called for the foul. Now up 2-1 in the series, is in going to get one step closer to eliminating Cleveland with another victory tonight?

What now becomes a pivotal Game 5 resumes on Wednesday night back at Quicken Loans Arena with the contest set to tip off just after 7 p.m. ET.

Just 1:11 seconds into the fourth, IN took the lead for the first time since the game's opening moments.

Pacers: "We need to calm down and execute", McMillan said when asked what needs to change.

"We've got to use the home court to our advantage, like we did in Game 2", Love said.

Victor Oladipo had an off night in Game 4, scoring 18 points on 5-of-20 shooting, thanks largely to the stellar defense of J.R. Smith.

James pushed out his arm to shove Stephenson away.

IN is 28-4 when they allow under 100 points, while Cleveland is 17-5.

The Cavaliers are breathing a sigh of relief after almost losing another game in which they had a big lead. "So you just hope going into the next time, coming out of the break that you play better". They made just one out of 10 shot attempts and missed all four of their 3-pointers during a stretch that could ultimately cost them the series. Jose Calderon would likely start with Jordan Clarkson getting more minutes if he's ultimately out for Game 4.

Overall, the Cavs' bench scored 32 points, helping make up in part for the absence of George Hill, who sat out the game with back spasms.

Despite having seven players score in double figures, making more baskets, grabbing more offensive rebounds and matching Cleveland's 12 3s, in missed six of its last eight shots. Thad Young has 12 points and a playoff career-high 16 rebounds.

James wasn't about to let his team go quietly, though, hitting a couple of pull-up threes and a free throw to bring things even at 84, a shocking individual run.

The game was tied, 92-92, with about five minutes left when Beal - who led eighth-seeded Washington with 31 points - was called for his sixth foul as he and DeMar DeRozan collided while the Raptors had the ball.

Love is by no means a rim protecter, but he has to do a better job of limiting the looks the Pacers can get inside.
