Pacers hope to start winning streak in Toronto

Cavs snatch victory over Pacers at the buzzer - Delly continues strong play off the bench

The Indiana Pacers are now 20-11 on the season following their 92-91 home loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. Toronto rallied from 17 points down.

Domantas Sabonis led the Pacers in scoring with a game high 17 points.

IN certainly had its chances.

There's no way to know how, if at all, the outcome of the game may have changed had Oladipo been sent to the line for two free throws.

All-star point guard Kyle Lowry and big man Serge Ibaka won't play Wednesday night against the visiting Indiana Pacers, according to coach Nick Nurse.

Bradley Beal had 29 points and 10 rebounds for Washington, who have lost five of their past six.

And Cleveland finally took advantage of its opportunity in the waning seconds. The Cavs played without Kevin Love (left foot surgery), Jordan Clarkson (sore lower back), Tristan Thompson (sprained left foot) and John Henson (left wrist surgery).

Nance and the Cavaliers are now 3-11 away from Quicken Loans Arena.

Larry Nance Jr. posted another solid floor game - finishing with seven points, six assists and four boards off the bench - and is averaging 10.7 points, 7.6 boards and 4.3 assists since December 5. Cleveland was 6 of 31 from beyond the arc.

Delly has now scored in double figures in all five of his games since returning via trade from the Milwaukee Bucks, providing a steadying presence with the second unit.

Cavaliers: Alex Burks had 14 pints, Cedi Osman had 13 and Collin Sexton had 12.

With the game ending in a loss, the Pacers saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end. In each of the Pacers' three December losses, an improved IN rebounding team has not finished by closing out the possession with a key rebound.

In Indiana's early-season win over the Wine & Gold, Oladipo finished with 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting to lead a balanced Pacers attack. Bogdanovic has scored in double figures in 22 consecutive games, the longest streak of his National Basketball Association career. Tonight, Leonard registered his second-straight double-double with 28 points and 10 boards against the Pacers. Cleveland's three game road trip continues Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets.

Indiana's 99-96 loss to the Raptors came on a night when the Pacers blew their first double-digit lead of the season.
