Sports Minute: Here is the latest Indiana sports news from The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Sean Manaea fell in love with baseball as a young kid in Indiana after his parents signed him up to play. His father, who grew up in American Samoa, didn't really know much about the game. He played cricket and rugby in his early days. But the younger Manaea blossomed into a hard-throwing 6-foot-5 lefty who threw a no-hitter in his last game for the Oakland A's. That performance was just part of an impressive start for Manaea in his third big league season.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - LeBron James hasn't had to work this hard, this early in the NBA playoffs for a few years. James and the Cleveland Cavaliers held off Indiana's comeback in Game 4 to even the series. The Pacers have been resilient all season and will look to bounce back again on Wednesday in one of four Game 5s on the playoff schedule.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Cavaliers starting point guard George Hill is questionable to play in Game 5 against Indiana. Hill has been dealing with back spasms since he was injured on an illegal screen by Pacers forward Trevor Booker in Game 1. Hill was limited to some shooting drills during practice. Coach Tyronn Lue says if Hill can play he will start. Jose Calderon started for Hill in Game 4. The first-round series is tied 2-2.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Chris Ballard started collecting draft chips last month. He's hoping the Indianapolis Colts add a few more this week. The second-year general manager is going all in on a simple, proven plan to put the Colts back on a playoff course: Draft well and develop talent from within.
