The NBA Playoffs continue on Monday with an Eastern conference showdown. The two seed Cleveland Cavaliers take on the seven seed Indiana Pacers.
The Cavaliers are the favorites to come out of the East, but Paul George and the Pacers want to have something to say about and they almost stole game one on Saturday.
The Cavaliers led almost the whole game, but the Pacers made a huge late charge and it was almost enough to pull the upset, but in the end the Cavaliers won 109-108.
The Indiana Pacers will come into this game with a lot of confidence. They had a shot at the end of game to win but it missed, so they know they can play with this team.
CJ Miles was the one to take that final shot and it caused a lot of controversy in the Pacers locker room.
After the game Paul George said “I’ve got to get the last shot, but at the same time, I’ve got to have trust in my teammates. C.J.’s been in that position in this season where I’ve needed him to make a big shot and I’ve kicked to him and he’s made that big shot.”
It will be interesting to see if those comments cause any problems in the Pacers locker room. To win this game they need to have a perfect game so they can’t let those comments cause any controversy.
The Cleveland Cavaliers honestly can’t be too confident coming into this game. Yes they are up 1-0 in the series but they didn’t play that great in game one, and almost blew a ten point lead.
They are still having a really hard time on the defensive end. They allowed George to score 29 points including 6-8 from behind the arc.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the defensive end of the floor. They need to find a way to slow down Paul George and get the Pacers to run their offense through someone else.
