INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (92.3 The Fan) - Friday night saw the Cleveland Cavaliers close out the preseason with a 110-94 win over the Indiana Pacers at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

Cavs small forward Cedi Osman led the way with 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including 4-of-7 from the 3-point line), while Dean Wade and Mitch Ballock each totaled 12 points. Kevin Love also chipped in 10 points for the victors.

Cleveland's bench shouldered the bulk of the exhibition, as Evan Mobley (three points, four rebounds, two assists) was the only Cavs starter to total double-digit minutes (14). Isaac Okoro and Jarrett Allen scored just five points apiece as starters, while Darius Garland totaled three points (along with four assists), and Lauri Markkanen added two. Collin Sexton did not play Friday as the fourth-year guard deals with a shoulder injury.

Cleveland finished at 2-3 for the preseason and will open regular season play this Wednesday in Memphis against the Grizzlies.
