Victor Oladipo helps Indiana Pacers snap Cleveland Cavaliers' win streak at 13 games

Sports
INDIANAPOLIS -- Victor Oladipo couldn't point to any major reason for his second-half explosion. "I was just going out there being aggressive and trying to make plays," Oladipo said after scoring 25 of his 33 points in the final two quarters to help Indiana Pacers top the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-102, snapping their league-leading 13-game winning streak on Friday night. Oladipo scored 20 in the third quarter as the Pacers turned a six-point halftime deficit into a three-point lead (89-86) after three quarters. The Pacers (15-11) have now won both meetings with Cleveland (18-8), but Oladipo wasn't ready to call it a statement win. "We haven't done anything," Oladipo said. It was just another game that we had to go out there and compete and win. We did a great job playing as a team, working h...

Cleveland Cavaliers top Atlanta Hawks for 10th straight victory

Sports
ATLANTA -- The Cleveland Cavaliers hit a season-high 18 3-pointers, but it also took a defensive change in the second half that showed off LeBron James' all-round game to keep their winning streak alive. James, who scored 24 points on 11 shots, switched over to cover Atlanta point guard Dennis Schroder and the Cavaliers defeated the Hawks 121-114 for their 10th consecutive victory Thursday night. Schroder scored 27 points, but the 6-foot-8 James slowed him down enough in the second half for the Cavaliers (15-7) to win despite giving up the most points during their streak. "I take a lot of pride in my defensive abilities to matter if I'm guarding a point guard, a power forward, a center or a small forward. I take the challenge," James said. "My teammates wanted me to take the challenge and ...

Cleveland Browns sticking with rookie DeShone Kizer at QB

Sports
BEREA, Ohio -- The learning experience has been one of bruises and bumps in the road for Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, and the process is going to continue despite the 0-4 start. Head coach Hue Jackson made it clear he plans to stick with Kizer despite inserting backup quarterback Kevin Hogan with 6:30 left in the fourth quarter of the 31-7 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. Hogan drove the Browns to their only touchdown -- a 1-yard run by Duke Johnson with 1:54 remaining. "I thought yesterday (Kizer) played as well as he played all year," Jackson said on Monday. "With the exception of missing a couple of read-IDs (reading the safeties) and protection, he played lights out. He didn't take sacks. He threw the ball away. He didn't have turnovers. So that's improvement. So I ...
