Delon Wright plays just 18 minutes Thursday in Raptors' win

The Cavs are 0-3 against IN and 6-1 against everyone else IN the division.

The Toronto Raptors got their opportunity to shine in the spotlight and well, they did not disappoint beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 133-99. Toronto won the rebounding battle.

The Raptors out-rebounded the Cavaliers 63-to-35. But it wasn't enough as the four-time MVP finished with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds while Kevin Love had 21 points and 10 rebounds in the loss.

Neither team made a field goal the rest of the way, with IN finishing the game on an 8-0 run.

Getting to the line could be hard to come by for IN in this showdown. Making matters worse, the Cavs are also near the bottom of the league in defensive rebounding percentage and overall rebounding percentage. The Cavaliers are 3-7-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in IN, 4-12-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings and the underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. Cavaliers games have a slight tendency to finish over the total (52.5 percent).

Overcoming a 20-0 run is rarely a recipe for success, but the Indiana Pacers had the right chefs in the kitchen on Friday night.

One of the downfalls of Cleveland during that quarter was their 32 percent shooting from the field, while their defense allowed IN to hit for five 3-pointers.

Milwaukee played some of its best ball with Antetokounmpo on the bench. The Blue & Gold scored a season-low 12 points in the opening frame - going just 6-for-22 from the field and committing six turnovers - and faced a 22-point deficit heading into the second quarter.

The result: IN, which trailed 26-6 about eight minutes into the game and still trailed 72-60 with 5:23 left IN the third, rallied.

West Brom midfielder Gareth Barry: Brighton can kickstart survival push
Pardew added: "We need encouragement all the way, we need you to stick with the players and be right behind them from the first whistle to the last".

IN is 12-11 ATS at home with 14 unders, 8 overs and 1 push.

The Raptors will reach the midway point of their schedule Saturday with their 41st game, and their 29 wins are the most they have had half way through a season in franchise history. Boston star Irving, who parted ways with James and the Cavaliers in controversial circumstances last season, liked a post of the footage on Instagram.

Victor Oladipo scored 19 points in the win over Cleveland Friday night.

The Cavaliers rank fourth in blocks allowed per game (4.0) while the Pacers rank 23rd (5.3). "They've still got DeRozan, who's averaging (32) points a game over his last (six)".

Usually a strong defensive team under Casey, the Raptors have more diversity in their offense this season with more three-point attempts, more free-flow offense and fewer predetermined sets on every possession.

The Denver Nuggets recovered from a slow start to end their three-game losing streak with a 87-78 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.

It certainly doesn't help that the Pacers were 1-of-18 from 3-point range in the Miami loss.

IN is 2-3 ATS with 3 unders and 2 overs over their last five games. The Cavaliers have been out of sync in the last 10-12 games, and locker room issues may be the case.
