Lance Stephenson continues to find ways to bother LeBron James

In other results, Charlotte trounced Utah, 99-88; Washington subdued Orlando, 125-119; Brooklyn repulsed Atlanta, 110-105; Golden State routed Milwaukee, 108-94; Minnesota crushed NY, 118-108; New Orleans turned back Portland, 119-113; Houston downed Phoenix, 112-95; and Denver clipped Memphis.

The Pacers beat the Cavaliers for a 3rd time in 3 tries this season by erasing a 22-point deficit and finishing off a 3-1 homestead.

One game that all National Basketball Association fans around the league make sure to circle on the calendar each season is the game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the #Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day, and the following game which lies midway through January.

Early on it certainly didn't look like the Pacers would be carrying that victorious momentum into their upcoming road trip. Kevin Durant was the top scorer for the Warriors with 26 points.

"I'm not trying to start anything, just showing that I'm locked in and I'm going to play tough defense on you and you ain't going to get nothing easy", Stephenson said. Isaiah Thomas missed his first 11 shots before finally finding the net, finishing 2-for-15 for four points. After the game, he described Stephenson as a "dirty" player.

"We were missing Myles and we're definitely a much better team when we have everybody in uniform", McMillan said.

James also was baited into a technical foul by Stephenson with 7:53 left in the game.

"We're in a funk", James said. "That's all. He's a little dirty. But he played well tonight". Along with frustrating LeBron James, Lance Stephson chipped in 16 points and 11 rebounds off the bench.

Fred VanVleet scored a career-high 22 points, while Jonas Valanciunas had 15 points and a season-high 18 rebounds as the Raptors overcame the absences of two starters.

Oladipo took to shouting DPOY to Collison in the locker room after the game. IN took the lead for good on a 3-pointer from the top of the key by Victor Oladipo with 2:10 to play. Miami's 0.611 effective field goal percentage was their largest strength over IN, who had a mark of 0.506.

Outside of getting snippy with reporters the other night, LeBron also shared a tense moment with Cavaliers player development coach Phil Handy during the first quarter of the game on Thursday.

"DC felt like Lance got hung up on a screen and called the switch", Oladipo said of the late turnover. LeBron downplayed that comment by suggesting the Cavaliers simply need to get back to "playing ball the right way".

The Clippers, who lost DeAndre Jordan to a sprained left ankle in the second quarter, won their third straight over the Kings this season and their 11th in a row at Sacramento.

This Raptors game - a nationally televised affair against a playoff foe from the previous two seasons - would typically be the type of game the Dr. Jekyll Cavs would show up for.
