Pacers bounce back in Cleveland
Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Gerald Green led a balanced attack with 20 points and six rebounds as the Indiana Pacers got back on track with a 111-90 triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.
After following a rare home setback to Los Angeles Lakers with a loss on the road to a woeful 76ers squad, Indiana avoided its third straight defeat by dominating the middle quarters by a 60-38 margin on Monday.
Tyler Hansbrough, starting for injured David West, tallied 18 points and 11 rebounds. Paul George scored 14 and Roy Hibbert manned the paint with 12 points, nine rebounds and five blocks in the victory.
Cleveland, losers of five of six and just 1-3 since Kyrie Irving went out with a shoulder injury, shot just 38 percent from the field in the drubbing.
C.J. Miles was 4-of-8 from beyond the arc en route to a game-high 21 points off the bench and Tristan Thompson followed with 20 points and 11 boards.
