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.
