The Indiana Pacers are sending a message to the rest of the NBA: Team basketball still wins games. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 23 points and the Pacers extended their winning streak to five with a 105-90 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Darren Collison added 18 points, Myles Turner had 14 points and eight rebounds and Domantas Sabonis came off the bench to score 13 points and grab 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who led by as many as 21 points.
The Indiana Pacers humbled the Los Angeles Lakers 136-94 on Tuesday, handing Lakers superstar LeBron James the biggest margin of defeat of his NBA career. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 24 points for the Pacers, who tied a franchise record with 19 three-pointers. Myles Turner added 22 points and Thaddeus Young chipped in 12 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists for an Indian team that notched a third straight victory.
Domantas Sabonis had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and Myles Turner added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers, who won their second straight. The Pelicans had the ball, down 109-106, in the final seconds after Indiana guard Aaron Holiday was called for an offensive foul. But just before Jrue Holiday started to pull up for a 3-pointer, Pacers guard Corey Joseph astutely committed a reach-in foul, putting the Pelicans' guard on the foul line for just two free throws with two seconds left.
