INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -LeBron James scored 47 points Tuesday night, but his foul with 0.2 seconds left allowed Danny Granger to make the winning free throw, giving the Pacers a 96-95 victory over Cleveland.
It's the first time this season the Cavaliers have lost two straight games and this one was a surprise because the short-handed Pacers were missing three key players: Mike Dunleavy, Jeff Foster and Marquis Daniels.
The foul ended a bizarre sequence in which T.J. Ford appeared to hit a winning 17-foot fadeaway with 0.8 seconds left. But James drew a foul on an alley-oop and made both free throws with 0.4 seconds to go.
Then the Pacers tried the same play to Granger, and James was called for a foul he strongly disagreed with. Granger hit the first and deliberately missed the second to seal it.

Nuggets 99, Heat 82
MIAMI (AP) - Chauncey Billups scored 13 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, Carmelo Anthony finished with 19 points and nine rebounds, and the Nuggets swept the series with Miami for the fourth consecutive year.
