Cavs downplay effects of Pacers' Stephenson

The Cavaliers insist Lance Stephenson's antics won't influence their focus after run-ins with the Pacers guard in Sunday's 104-100 win, which tied their series at 2-2. "It's not worth it to give that extra energy to him," Cavs forward Jeff Green said.

George Hill remains questionable for Game 4 because of back spasms. The good news is the MRI he underwent on Saturday revealed no structural damage. Tyronn Lue said he will start Jose Calderon at point guard if Hill cannot play, rather than just shift point guard duties onto LeBron James. "I don't want LeBron to have to do everything," Lue said at Sunday's shootaround. "Have to handle the ball and make the plays. It will be a stretch where LeBron will be playing the point, we know that for sure, but not to start the game."

Tyronn Lue said he thinks Game 4 will be the time to work Tristan Thompson into his rotation. "I can trust him," Lue said of Thompson. "I think Tristan can also get us extra possessions offensive rebounding. He brings toughness and that's been a problem last couple games. I think he brings toughness, rebounding, defense." Thompson has just two garbage-time minutes in the series so far. Last year, he averaged 8.2 points on 58.7 percent shooting, 8.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists, starting 18 games for Cleveland during its run to the Finals.

The Cavaliers were outscored in the third quarter by 11 points in their Game 3 loss to the Indiana Pacers. LeBron James said it's been a recurring problem for Cleveland. "I mean we've had horrible third quarters all season,' James said at shootaround Sunday morning. "If I could put my finger on it, we'd change it. So you just hope going into the next time, coming out of the break that you play better."
