Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers, back to Cleveland, victory against the Pacers in Indiana served to make the team aware of the terrible failures they have and Tyronn Lue should make changes in the home game strategy, it will not be easy to win at home, It has never been for these Cavaliers who are in full training with LeBron James, but everything is possible, and the Cavs are expecting great things in the playoffs.
Cleveland Cavaliers: It’s time to rediscover the game to win.
The worst thing that could happen to the Cavaliers was losing the first game of the playoffs against the Pacers, that game was a low blow for the players and the fans, nobody expected the Indiana Pacers to win so easily in the Quicken Loans Arena, the first quarter was dominated by Indiana Pacers, 33-24, although the home team won the second and third quarter, that did not help to cut the Pacers advantage, the result was 98-80.
Losing at home is unfortunate, but that is a thing of the past, LeBron James must lead the team in this new journey, the second game at home against Pacers proved much more effective in offense, but likewise the weakness in the defense, the Cavs won the game 100-97, but suffered to reach the last minute of the game.
At home the Cavs are scoring an average of 110.5 points on average, the defense is mediocre and allow up to 109.8 points to visitors, the effectiveness of the three pointers is at 36.2 with an average of 11.16 three pointers per game. LeBron James is scoring 27.2 points, Kevin Love 17.6 and J.R. Smith with 8.3 points on average are the 3 best starters of the Cavs. George Hill is a doubt for this game, he still has problems in his back.
Indiana Pacers: The last game at home was a failure.
Indiana Pacers could have the 3-1 lead in the playoffs, but the history against the Cleveland Cavaliers always points to having to lose at least one game at home, according to the statistics of the last few years in the playoffs for the Pacers. Cleveland Cavaliers won the first half of the fourth game with 60 points, that advantage remained stable until the start of the third quarter, but LeBron James was playing impeccably and scored 44 points, including a three pointer savior in the last second of the fourth quarter .
The chances of winning at home of the Cavs is limiting for the Pacers, they know how difficult it is to pass this phase of the playoffs, they have always had problems to reach the end of conferences. The advantage of the Pacers is the low defensive effectiveness of the Cavs, while they put pressure on the defense and score points, the chances of winning the game will increase.
