The Cavaliers host the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of a first-round playoff series on Sunday. The Pacers shot 47.6 percent from the field and made half of their 14 first-half threes. For #LeBron James and Cleveland, they're looking to regain their dominance in the East once again by getting past a first-round opponent. But I also know the Cavs are still putting things together.2. Rugged and determined on that end, a post and paint target offensively, a finisher and an OK pick-and-pop mid-range shooter from straight on, Sabonis interjects some effort and impact from the bench, the kind of player Cleveland has also struggled with all season.
With Irving traded and his replacement, the since-traded Isaiah Thomas, out through December, many people predicted before the season Love would put up his best numbers since coming to Cleveland in 2014. But that's my guess.3. This is the first playoff game for Larry Nance Jr., Jordan Clarkson, Cedi Osman, and Ante Zizic.
Even without much rest (he finished first overall in minutes per game at 36.9), the four-time Most Valuable Player feels as good as he ever has. Think about that turnover.4. As James said, "Physically, I'm where I should be, I'm as healthy as you can be". It seemed that LeBron acted like a clean swipe by Stephenson was flagrant, which prompted a long review. He spoke about not taking it for granted, and the excitement of the postseason.

"He's a tough player, he's always challenging me", Stephenson said. Even back then, James had a similar reaction, simply shaking his head and smiling. "I'm aware of what he said".
"You usually go nine", Lue said, according to ESPN. Cleveland cut the lead to as little as seven points on three separate occasions in the second half, but in kept its distance and sealed the game with back-to-back buckets from Victor Oladipo, the second a 3-pointer for a 95-78 lead with 1:59 remaining. "I'm not comparing it to previous year". Can he keep to his new diet and health routine? The Cavs vs Pacers series has all the markings of going the distance. Drew coached Atlanta to three consecutive playoff appearances (2011-13).10.
Oladipo steals the headlines here, but the Pacers can run 10 deep in the postseason easily if head coach Nate McMillan should choose. The downside is that if he beats the trap, it creates a numbers advantage close to the basket, and Oladipo shot a career-best 63.8 percent at the rim this season.

Victory saw Schalke pull four points clear of third place, while Dortmund drop to fourth. Marco Pjaca sent the ball to Caligiuri, who stopped it for Naldo.
The Pacers success came out of nowhere this season after their seemingly lopsided offseason trade of Paul George. Almost every National Basketball Association expert had IN missing the playoffs.11.
"We believe that we can win", Oladipo said. This year will look quite a bit different, however, as Cleveland no longer has three of their top five scorers (Irving, Deron Williams, and Channing Frye) from that series and IN no longer has their top two (Paul George and Jeff Teague).
