The Indiana Pacers welcome the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Fieldhouse tonight looking for a win to stop a three-game losing streak.

Seems quite presumptuous to expect a win out of the Pacers tonight after the recent losses to better teams. The problem was, those teams were not only better but also gave a better effort, so the Pacers had no chance to win.

The Pacers don't need to make any drastic changes tonight, just get back to the basics, play hard and execute and everything will be fine. However, a losing effort tonight puts the season on shaky ground, crumbling the team's foundation of good will built up during November. One game in December against Cleveland shouldn't be that important. But with a trip to Boston scheduled for Sunday to take on the Celtics, it is.
