James Pushes Cavs Past Pacers

Last updated on Monday, November 26, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - LeBron James recorded a triple-double as the Cleveland Cavaliers came from behind to defeat the Indiana Pacers 111-106 Sunday afternoon at Conseco Fieldhouse.

James finished with 30 points, eleven rebounds and ten assists to record his fourth triple-double of the season. Drew Gooden added 23 points and twelve rebounds and Sasha Pavlovic finished with 22 as the Cavaliers won their third in a row.

Marquis Daniels led Indiana with a season-high 25 points, 19 of which came in the second half. Jamaal Tinsley fell a rebound shy of a triple-double with 24 points with ten assists and nine rebounds for the Pacers, who erased a 14-point deficit in the third quarter and led by seven early in the fourth quarter. Cleveland responded by scoring a season-high 38 points over the final twelve minutes.

Indiana was without Jermaine O'Neal for the third consecutive game. O'Neal has been sidelined by swelling in his left knee and it is not known when the six-time all-star will return.

The Pacers open a four-game western trip Tuesday night in Denver.
