The Cavaliers look to rebound from one of their worst losses on the season as they welcome in the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.
Cleveland gave Lebron James some rest and the team responded with a very lazy performance.
The Pacers sit in 6th place, but have a lot of work to do as they sit in a cluster of teams.
Indiana is just 3.5 games out of the 3 seed, but also just 0.5 game up on the 8th place team.
The East is a mess and the Pacers need to find a winning streak to really give themselves some space. Indiana has dropped back to back games, something they cannot make a habit of here down the stretch.
It’s been Paul George who really ignites this team. When he goes, they go. But when he is off, things really get all out of sync. It’s been like that the past 2 games, as he went just 4 of 15 from the field in the loss to Portland last time out.
Former Cavalier SF C.J. Miles is likely going to miss his 5th straight game as he continues to battle a calf injury.
The Cavaliers gave Lebron James a rest with the team playing a lot of games over the next week and things didn’t go as well as planned.
Cleveland was demolished in Washington as they seemed very frustrated in their performance after the loss. JR Smith gave his displeasure as he called the team’s performance very lazy.
Now, rumors have hit the news front that potentially Kyrie Irving is unhappy and unsettled in Cleveland. While those rumors haven’t been confirmed by any means, it does start to raise some flags just how stable the Cleveland locker room is. After all, David Blatt was fired for that reason despite being in first place.
With James back in the lineup and rested, expect a very motivated Cavs team here on Monday.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
The Cavaliers have had a drama filled season and now the Irving rumors add to that. However, this team is so good and still after all that, they are in first place in the East.
Look for them to come out angry here on Monday, as they really take it to the Pacers, while shutting down Paul George.
