National Basketball Association roundup: Cavs blow 22-point lead at Indiana

VanVleet had a career-high 22 points, including 6-of-8 from three-point range, as Toronto went 18-of-42 from beyond the arc to torch Cleveland 133-99.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23 points and Eric Bledsoe added 21 points and four steals for the Bucks. Malcolm Brogdon tallied 17 points for Milwaukee, which scored just 12 points on 5-of-20 shooting in the final quarter and shot 42.9 percent overall.

Officially, Thursday night's Cleveland at Toronto game was the 615th on the National Basketball Association schedule for this season - the exact midway point on the 1,230-game regular-season slate. The Cavs have not beaten the Pacers in two meetings this season. He missed a 3-point attempt for the win at the buzzer.

Then again, most teams in that position don't have three straight finals trips on their resumé, nor do they have the best player in the world on their roster. After Sunday's game, they will play the Utah Jazz (Monday) the Portland Trailblazers (Thursday), the Los Angeles Lakers (Friday) and the San Antonio Spurs (Sunday).

Lowry is still a game-time decision for Saturday night after missing the past two games with a bruised tailbone.

The Pacers have won 3 of 4 and improved to 3-0 against Cleveland, which has lost three straight. Fifteen years. I don't know, I've been in this spotlight for half of my years.

By contrast, the Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.7 points per game) and three-point shooting (39 per cent). DeRozan finished the night with 13 points and eight assists in 29 minutes. Forward Serge Ibaka will return for Toronto after serving a one-game suspension for fighting Miami's James Johnson.

Cleveland, which lost its previous two games by a combined 62 points, was outscored 84-61 over the final three quarters and wound up blowing the lead nearly exactly nine months after the Cavs rallied from a 26-point deficit to beat IN in the playoffs.

Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade did not play for Cleveland, each getting a rest.

Nemanja Bjelica ignited a fourth-quarter burst with a 3-pointer as Minnesota broke open a tight game en route to a victory over NY in Minneapolis. He was clearly motived to show up defensively by LeBron, but his 16 points and 11 rebounds played a large part in the Pacers coming back to win.

He left the court but opened the second half and scored 10 points in the third quarter, including an emphatic driving dunk.

Tyronn Lue of the Cleveland Cavaliers at American Airlines Center on November 11, 2017 in Dallas, Texas.

"If guys have agendas", Lue said, "we've got to get rid of our agendas and play the right way".

Pacers guard Lance Stephenson, who had 16 points and 11 rebounds, made a driving layup with 3:13 left to cut Cleveland's lead to 95-93. "It's just been a process of us learning a right rhythm, finding a comfort within it".
