The Pacers aren't exactly coming out of their break rested and ready to go. With LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers in town tonight, Jamaal Tinsley and Jermaine O'Neal remain on the shelf. Also, it looks like David Harrison won't be available. The Pacers will have to hit a high percentage of shots tonight because stopping the Cavs won't be easy tonight. At least the Cavs won't have Sasha Pavlovic to torment the Pacers tonight. I swear his performances against the P's have kept him in the league. Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which has the Pacers focusing on what needs to be done to earn a playoff spot in the East. Mike Dunleavy nails the issues involved without any fluff.
Here's what the efficiency numbers say:
|Mike Dunleavy||F||LeBron James|
|Troy Murphy||F||Drew Gooden|
|Jeff Foster||C||Zydrunas Ilgauskas|
|Danny Granger||G||Ira Newble|
|Travis Diener||G||Larry Hughes|
