Pacers Links: Pacers try to start new streak in Cleveland

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Pacers need to take advantage of their schedule to keep moving their record over .500.

The Indiana Pacers beat the harsh weather to Cleveland yesterday so they can play the Cavaliers on Friday night.

The Pacers return to action after arguably their best effort of the season when they simply blew out the Utah Jazz at the Fieldhouse on Wednesday. With the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets slipping of late, the Pacers find themselves in the mix with several teams already battling for playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference.

The makes games like the one tonight in Cleveland and then in New Orleans on Saturday vitally important to keep pace and take advantage of the schedule before things get more challenging next week. The Pacers handled the Cavs last week by trying to make someone other than Kyrie Irving beat them. Repeating that effort will be a challenge with the Cavs playing at home and having a chance to adjust.

One thing is for sure, Cavs' mascot Moondog won't be messing around David West tonight. Last year West accidentally dropped Moondog like a bad habit during pregame warmups. This year the Pacers just need to knock out the Cavs on the scoreboard.
