Pacers rally past Cavs, road Warriors extend streak

No team has been as dominant at home, not many teams as deep as this Raptors roster and yet there remains talk of how everything and everyone will be judged come playoff time.

Stephenson entered the game with 5:52 left in the third quarter when 6-foot-11 center Domantas Sabonis picked up his fourth foul.

"I should have known, I've known since school, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught it's the guy who laughs", James said.

What appears to most prominently block DeRozan's path to superstardom is that the Raptors - for all their regular-season success - have not yet been viewed as a serious title contender. Thomas finished fifth in the MVP voting previous year and had a breakout season with the Boston Celtics. "I don't know if it was fatigue, but we took ourselves out of it".

Through half a season and counting, the Raptors have had a chance to win in nearly all them, and more often than not have done just that. They had a chance to win the game with under five seconds remaining as they had the ball down one, but LeBron James stepped on the baseline before missing his layup.

The Cavaliers, who at one point threatened to dislodge the Boston Celtics atop the Eastern Conference standings, have dropped 7 of their last 10 games. To figure out consistency in this league is a top priority.

He's right. Another night.

Durant had 17 first-half points to help Golden State build its 63-49 halftime lead.

Jonas Valanciunas has been a beast when he's being fed and not subbed in when teams go small.

Houston, in its sixth straight game with Harden sidelined by a hamstring injury, led by 18 in the second quarter, 22 at the end of the third and 27 in the fourth in its sixth consecutive victory over Phoenix.

But to the surprise of nobody who follows the Raptors, the team ended up being the sidebar story on their big night.

"They're growing", Casey said of his young group. They made a huge mistake that could've cost them the game.

"We just needed to settle down and focus", Nate McMillan said.

Tire them out: The Warriors are one of the deepest teams in the National Basketball Association. They haven't been there before.

"We've got to be better", Lue said after the Cavs lost for the seventh time in the past 10 games.

As good as the first half has been, it may get even better in the second and depending on what, if anything, the Raptors do come trade deadline day it can be even more memorable in the post-season. The Cavs were 7 of 34 from 3-point range and wound up shooting 43 percent overall after shooting 59.1 percent in the first quarter.

That love affair has apparently ended as Thompson is not putting in the production that he once did and it started in the 2017 NBA Finals when he was being out-rebounded by Stephen Curry at times.

But it's how they fell that makes it a little bit tougher to swallow.

"The way he carries himself", DeRozan said of VanVleet.
