Clippers: The Clippers defeated the Pacers 115-109 Tuesday night, concluding a stretch in which the team won seven of eight games at STAPLES Center. Once again, Danilo Gallinari and Montrezl Harrell each scored 20-plus points, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander pitched in another 17.

Cavaliers: The Cavaliers are coming off two impressive wins over the playoff-bound Bucks and the red-hot Pistons. Rookie guard Collin Sexton scored a combined 52 points in the victories, and he has scored 23 or more in seven straight games.

Double Trouble

Gallinari and Harrell continued their recent tear against the Pacers, scoring 24 and 20 points, respectively.

It marked Gallinari’s seventh consecutive game with 20 or more points, a new career-high. He’s enjoying his best month as a Clipper, scoring 24 points per game on 54.5 percent shooting and 50 percent from three.

Harrell continued his own career-best streak, as he’s now scored 20 or more in five straight games. He’s also recorded a double-double in three of those five games.
