INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Cleveland Cavaliers point guard George Hill will miss his third straight game against Indiana.

The starting point guard is inactive for Game 6 of the first-round series.

Hill not has played since reinjuring his back in a Game 3 loss, and the Cavs have responded by winning the next two to take a 3-2 series lead. They can close out the series with a win at Indianapolis or with a win at home Sunday - if they’re forced into decisive seventh game.

Jose Calderon will start in place of Hill for the third straight time.

Coach Tyronn Lue said Hill went through a pregame workout before being deactivated. He had been listed as questionable.
