The Indiana Pacers hit the road Friday night for another challenging game against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which focuses on one of my favorite topics, the 3-ball. Attempts from distance are down about 5 per game so far for the Pacers, although there are several factors to take into account. First and foremost, Mike Dunleavy hasn't played. Plus, T.J. Ford and Jarrett Jack aren't 3-point shooters compared to PGs Travis Diener and Jamaal Tinsley last year. I know, Tins isn't a 3-point shooter either, but he was always good for 2 or 3 wide open attempts when he played.

Jarrett Jack (bruised knee) joined Travis Diener and Rasho Nesterovic on the day-to-day list. That's what happens when you play hoops like a head-hunting strong safety. I expect to see Jack on the court tonight. I'm not expecting Rasho to play but it sure would be nice. As we know, Mike Dunleavy is still out.

For a Cavs perspective, check out Fear The Sword.
