INDIANAPOLIS—The Pacers are bouncing back from a slow start to their season.

After losing their first three games, Indiana has taken the last two, including a 102-95 win over Cleveland Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers got off to a slow start, but outscored the Cavs 23-11 in the second quarter for a 42-37 halftime lead.

Cleveland stayed close enough to keep the game interesting in the final period, but Indiana kept its lead.

Two newcomers to the Pacers, Malcolm Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb, combined for 46 points. Brogdon was the leading scorer with 25, Lamb had 21.

Domantas Sabonis had a monster game on the boards with 17 rebounds to go with his 18 points.

The Pacers are 2-3 and host Chicago Sunday at 5 p.m.

The Cavs fall to 2-3.
