Video: Caris LeVert Puts The Dagger In His Old Team During Comeback Win

Caris LeVert was part of a recent trade involving his former team, the Indiana Pacers, and his current team, the Cleveland Cavaliers this past Sunday, and he was in the awkward position of having to face the same organization that traded him just days ago.  LeVert seemed to use the recent trade as motivation as he played great against Indiana, finishing the game with 22 points and 5 assists.  To add insult to injury, the Pacers were actually blowing out the visiting Cavaliers from the outset of the game, jumping out to a 19-point lead while scoring a franchise-record 47 points in the first quarter before eventually losing the game 120-113 thanks largely to their former guards' contributions.

The 6'6" guard scored 8 points during the final five minutes of the game, including a stepback jumper in the paint with 1:12 left to put the Pacers up 116-110, reminding the hometown Pacers fans of what they will be missing now that he is wearing wine and gold.  

Check out LeVert's highlights including his clutch performance in the fourth quarter below:

LeVert and the Cavs have won their fourth straight game and will look to make it five tonight against the Philadephia 76ers while the Pacers will try to avoid their sixth straight loss when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
