Game Thread #47: Cleveland Cavaliers at Indiana Pacers

Indiana Pacers
36-11 16-30
January 29, 2010 - 7:00PM EST
Conseco Fieldhouse
Radio: 1070AM WFNI TV: Fox Sports Indiana
Probable starters:
Daniel Gibson PG Earl Watson
Anthony Parker SG Brandon Rush
LeBron James SF Dahntay Jones
J.J. Hickson PF Danny Granger
Shaquille O'Neal C Troy Murphy

The Indiana Pacers try to bounce back from a tough outing against the Western Conference leading Lakers to take on Cleveland Cavaliers, currently the top dog in the Eastern Conference. Assuming the Pacers start their small lineup again, we could witness Troy Murphy trying to slow down Shaq O'Neal in the paint. Of course, Shaq may have orders not to run roughshod on Murphy in order to keep him healthy for a potential trade in February.

Speaking of health issues, the Cavs have been going through point guards lately, losing Mo Williams and Delonte West to injuries. Boobie Gibson has stepped into the starting lineup and helped keep the W's coming for the Cavs. The Cavs arrive at the Fieldhouse with a six-game win streak despite the playing rotation upheaval.
