The NBA Playoffs are here! It’s a 4/5 showdown in the Eastern Conference playoffs between the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.
This year the Pacers have won three of the four games, and this should be one of the more exciting series this first round.
In the first game of this series the Cavaliers couldn’t get anything going and that led to a Pacers victory by a final score of 98-80.
When the Indiana Pacers traded away Paul George last year many believed that this would be a rebuilding year for the team and the chances for the playoffs were slim.
Fast forward to now though and not only are they in the playoffs, they are in with ease coming in with the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference.
In game one of this series they seemed to have a perfect game plan and that started with frustrating the heck out of LeBron James.
Their defense came up big and even though the offense couldn’t get much going they did enough to come out ahead.
In this game it’s going to be a tougher battle. They need to play better on the offensive end, and they need to get to LeBron James again early.
If they can frustrate him early they can take a 2-0 series lead.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cleveland Cavaliers who will be looking to make it back to the NBA Finals again this year, but to do that they need to get past the Indiana Pacers first.
For the Cavaliers, they need to make some changes and Tyronn Lue has hinted at some lineup changes to give the team some kind of jump.
In game one they really didn’t look too interested in being there. It almost looked like they figure they would have no issue and would walk right over them.
At the end of the day though LeBron James is going to be the key to this game. He is going to need to have a huge game and carry the team.
If he struggles in this game the Cavaliers won’t have any chance to come out ahead in this one.
