Victor Oladipo came away with 12 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in the Pacers’ 98-95 loss to the Cavs on Wednesday night.
That’s now two games in a row that Oladipo has struggled to get it going and both times, Indiana suffered a narrow defeat. In his last two, Oladipo has shot just 7-for-35, hitting only 20 percent of his shots. In a series this close, the Pacers need their star to be even just slightly more efficient to get the job done. VO helped elsewhere with his rebounding and only turned the ball over twice but Indiana needs him to shoot somewhere close to 50 percent on Friday night to force a Game 7.
