But as the Pacers still couldn't figure out their slow start problem and Cleveland built another double-digit lead in the first half for the third consecutive game, in couldn't complete the second-half comeback for the second time in four games.

A basket by Derrick Rose got Minnesota within 14 later in the fourth when Houston went on a 10-4 run to push the lead to 108-88 with less than five minutes to go.

Of all the games on Sunday, Cavs-Pacers was by far the best in terms of NBA TV ratings. The survivor advances to the next round to face the victor of the Toronto-Washington series.

Not surprisingly, the Pacers are taking the opposite view to turn the series in their favor. He started 24 games during the season. The Pacers are trying to frustrate LeBron James and also make someone other than James beat them.

Hill received four injections in an effort to play in Game 4, according to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, but he still wasn't able to go for the Cavs.

"You don't want to keep getting off to slow starts", Pacers guard Darren Collison told reporters after Game 4. "Guys are going to have to make those reads on the floor".
