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.
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.
For the Pacers they have played some really good basketball coming into this game. They have won seven of the last ten games with one of the losses coming in a game where they were resting their starters.
For the Pacers they are good on both sides of the ball, but the defense has been the stronger point. Coming into this game they are giving up only 104.2 points per game which is 9th in the NBA.
On the offensive side of the ball they are averaging 105.2 points per game which is 17th in the NBA. If they want to win this series the offense is going to need to be better than the 105.2 points.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cleveland Cavaliers who are in a weird position. They come into this game as the 4th seed, but many still believe they are the favorites to win the Eastern Conference.
For the Cavaliers, they haven’t been a good defensive team all year, and that needs to change if they want to have success.
Since Kevin Love came back though they have been playing better, and they look like a team that could make a run in the playoffs.
For success, they need a couple of things to happen though. The defense needs to be better, and LeBron James needs to be on his game.
He is going to have to will the team to victory in every game, and that is going to be the big key in this series.
