Cleveland (24-52 SU, 38-36-2 ATS, 38-38 O/U) is coming off a 91-85 win over Orlando at home giving 6. Indiana (48-29 SU, 42-35 ATS, 35-41-1 O/U) has lost two straight, including falling on Saturday, 104-85, giving 4 to Washington. The Cavaliers are still fighting, despite being way out of the playoff picture. They not only beat Orlando at home, but they also won at Boston, 97-91, getting 5 on Friday. They haven't even had to rely on Kyrie Irving, who has scored just 20 points in his last two games. Forward Tristan Thompson is coming into this own with 22 points and 16.5 rebounds in his last two games. Indiana has really struggled their last two games after going 4-0 on their road trip. They lost at home on Friday to Oklahoma City, 97-75. While the Pacers should bounce back with a win, they won't cover against the feisty Cavaliers.
