Believe it or not, the Indiana Pacers have new life.
The Pacers, who fired former head coach Jim O'Brien and replaced him with assistant Frank Vogel on Sunday, won their second game in a row Wednesday night with a 117-112 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Led by the play of Danny Granger (23 points) and Darren Collison (22 points, 9 assists), the Pacers (19-27) handed the Cleveland Cavaliers (8-41) their 22nd loss in a row, just one short of the NBA record of 23.
The Cavaliers had the chance to tie the game late in the fourth quarter when the score was 115-112, but the Cavaliers insisted on driving to the hoop instead and an errant pass to J.J. Hickson cost Cleveland the game.
