INDIANAPOLIS -- The Cavaliers' winning streak is over thanks to a number of breakdowns throughout their 106-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
Some wide-open Pacers chucking 3s. Offensive rebounds. Transition baskets. The Cavs committing two 24-second violations in the fourth quarter. All of it played into their winning streak stopping at 13 games, which tied the franchise record.

Victor Oladipo, Pacers stop Cavaliers' win streak at 13 with 106-102 win
Author: Joe Vardon
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Cavaliers' winning streaks are over thanks to Victor Oladipo and, more broadly, the 3-pointer.
The Indiana Pacers knocked off the Cavs 106-102 Friday night, stopping Cleveland's overall winning streak at 13 and its road streak at seven. A win for the Cavs would've set franchise records for both.
Oladipo scored 33 points, with six 3s. The Pacers drained 15 3-pointers as a team. The Cavs, always such a dangerous team in the fourth quarter, especially from 3-point range, made just three of 12 attempts beyond the arc in the final period. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
