The Indiana Pacers defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time this season in a 106-102 battle.

Pacers (15-11) were led by Victor Oladipo’s 33 points to survive a late-game rally by the Cavaliers. Oladipo scored 20 of his 33 points in the third quarter while being guarded by JR Smith who picked up 3 fouls in the process.

A late 3-pointer by Cavaliers’ shooting guard, JR Smith, reduced the deficit to one point but Pacers survived the last few minutes of the game by the way of a clutch performance by Oladipo who also added eight rebounds and five assists to his stat line.

“We had to be ready to play; they’re a great team and they’ve been playing really well. It was a great win. Now on to the next one.” – Oladipo

James (23) and the Cavs were unable to stop Pacers for the second time this season.

Myles Turner, Thaddeus Young, Cory Joseph, and Bojan Bogdanovic were other players who scored in double figures for the Pacers with 15, 13, 12, and 10 points respectively.

A near-triple double effort by LeBron James was not enough to keep Cavaliers from losing as the defending Eastern Conference Champions (18-8) fell for the second time to the Pacers this season. Cavaliers lost 107-124 to the Pacers on November 1 in Cleveland and are now 0-2 against Indiana.
