Cavaliers to use 10-man rotation in first round

Pacers To Face Cavs In Round 1 Of Playoffs

Pacers To Face Cavs In Round 1 Of Playoffs

In particular, three factors tend to have the most predictive power: the regular-season performance of the two teams as measured by point differential, their head-to-head record in the regular season and home-court advantage.

Sure, I know that Vegas and the sports pundits give the Blue and Gold no chance to even make it a series.

"The good thing is we got the best player in the world playing for us", Hill said. The playoffs this time around promises to be a spectacle and we have many interesting matchups to look forward to. The Pacers actually had the better point differential during the regular season and won the head-to-head series 3-1, although those four games were played before the trade deadline.

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.

Overall, Indiana made 11 of 28 3-point attempts while Cleveland hit 8 of 34 from long range.

And yet if Playoff LeBron shows up like he can, none of that will matter. The incomparable, 33-year old James has owned the conference for what seems like forever.

The Miami Heat, the No. 2 seed that season, lost to the No. 7 seed New York Knicks in Game 4 of the first round.

Round 2 of Cavs-Pacers kicks off Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET in Cleveland for the best-of-seven series. We project him for 57.4 FD points in Game 2.

One of the holdovers from Cleveland's past three Finals teams, Thompson played extended minutes in the second half of Wednesday's loss to NY while Nance rested, a sign that Lue might be leaning toward him playing more.

Still, let's not go overboard here. Since then, those teams are 0-7 and none have forced a Game 7. He also added six rebounds, four assists and four steals during the contest.

Philadelphia enters the playoffs on a 16-game winning streak, but be wary of reading too much into recent performance. 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.

After the game, LeBron was asked about playing Stephenson in the playoffs once again.

Oladipo received help from his supporting cast, as Myles Turner (12 points), Bojan Bogdonavic (10 points) and Lance Stephenson (nine points) helped the team to a 55-38 halftime lead. Cleveland was down 19 after the opening quarter and despite their best efforts, couldn't throw a serious scare into IN the rest of the way. "This is a totally new team and we are a new team". I know I need to step up, but that's no different than years past. This is a team that has no right to be as good as it is.

But the Rockets swept the season series by almost 16 points per game.

How Did the Season Series Go?
