CLEVELAND — Roy Hibbert scored 18 points and Lance Stephenson added a season-high 16 to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 99-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who lost their sixth straight game Friday night.

Hibbert didn't have to deal with injured Cavs center Anderson Varejao, the NBA's leading rebounder. Varejao missed his second game in a row with a bruised right knee.

David West added 15 points and 10 rebounds and Gerald Green had 14 points — with a ferocious dunk — as the Pacers won for the fifth time in six games.

Kyrie Irving scored 17 points on just 5-of-16 shooting for the Cavs, who are 1-11 in their last 12 games. Tristan Thompson had 12 points and 13 rebounds for Cleveland, 3-21 in its past 24.
