Another day. Another crazy comeback in the sports world that has set Twitter on fire.
This one comes from the opening round NBA playoff match-up between the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Pacers took a 25-point lead into halftime against the Cavs, and at one point the lead was as large as 26 points. But the Cavs cut that deficit to 7 by the end of the third quarter. And when the final buzzer sounded, the scoreboard read, “Cleveland 119, Indiana 114.”
As it was all happening, people across the country were taking to Twitter to talk about another crazy sports comeback—and do some trolling of the Pacers in the process.
Here’s a look at some of the best reactions to the Pacers’ choke job:
The Cavs must have watched the Patriots Super Bowl 51 game film during halftime.

The @Pacers shouldn’t even show up to Sunday’s game after tonight. They should go in hiding. Indiana fans deserve better! Fire Nate McMillan — B-Adams (@brandonadams21) April 21, 2017

Cavs were 25/1 to win at @WilliamHillUS when they were down by 20+. Biggest bet was $200, netted $5,000.
