Cavaliers lose to Pacers without James, Irving

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) LeBron James couldn't carry the Cavaliers on his sore back Friday night.

So Cavaliers coach David Blatt put him on the bench.

Blatt held the four-time MVP out of a 93-86 loss at Indiana for precautionary reasons. James had hurt his back while scoring a season-high 42 points in Thursday night's 110-99 win over Golden State.
