Late game situations once again perplexed the Indiana Pacers, wasting a final regulation possession that led to an overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Pacers controlled the game in the second half, storming back from an 11-point halftime deficit, holding a 4-point lead late, but losing yet again in familiar fashion.

All five starters reached double figures, led by George Hill with 23 points. Myles Turner was fantastic outside of missing an assignment at the end of regulation, netting a 14 point, 10 rebound double double with four blocks. Jordan Hill had 17 and Solomon Hill had 10 points off the bench, but the struggles of Paul George (3-15, five turnovers) and Monta Ellis (5-18, six turnovers) proved too costly to finish the game on a positive note.

Indiana will hit the road on Wednesday, facing the Brooklyn Nets.
