Fear the Newsletter: Cavs-Pacers was super fun

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs took care of the Pacers in double-overtime Sunday in one of the funnest games of the season, even if LeBron and Tristan got into a fight.

LEGEND HAS IT: The Cavs are off Monday - national championship game day ya'll - but may put in some light work ahead of Tuesday's homestand finale against the Magic.

ALL DUE RESPECT: Rockets without James Harden 123, Suns 116. Celtics 110, Knicks 94. Spurs 109, Jazz 103. Raptors 113, 76ers 105. Warriors 139, Wizards 115. The Clippers had Sunday off.

The Cavs enter Monday a half game behind the Celtics, 2.5 games up on the Raptors and 3.5 games up on the Wizards. If the season ended today, the Cavs would face the Bulls in the first round.

JOB WELL DONE: Kyrie and LeBron connected for the highlight of Sunday. Kyle Korver is switching the Kyrie 3. And Larry Sanders again played well in the D-League.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. There's also a fun giveaway that wraps up TODAY.

CROWN: Norway is the best. Wired on why tech's wealthy enclaves are bad for everyone. The Indy Star on how taxpayers pay for religious education. ESPN's Tom Haberstroh on how Kawhi's bullyball impacts the opposition. And CBS' Jonah Keri on why we'll see more homers and strikeouts in baseball this year.

That's it for today. Drop your questions, comments and concerns to christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk again tomorrow.
