Pacers Links: Pacers set to host Kyrie Irving, Cavaliers

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland trying to make up for lost time with Irving back from injury.

The Indiana Pacers return to action on Wednesday night when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Coach Frank Vogel is trying to shake up the vibe of his second unit by adding Ben Hansbrough to the mix in place of D.J. Augustin. The Pacers may need a little extra energy to make sure they are ready to roll for the 5-17 Cavs. That record for Cleveland doesn't tell the whole story for Cleveland since they were 2-9 during an 11-game stretch with star point guard Kyrie Irving on the shelf due to a broken finger.

Irving returned to action on Tuesday night to lead the Cavs over the Los Angeles Lakers with 28 points and 11 assists. Between Irving and active big man Anderson Varejao, the Pacers will have their hands full. The Pacers should have an advantage coming off of two days of rest while the Cavs have to amp things up again after an emotional win at home last night.
