The Pacers complete their first preseason back-to-back on Saturday night when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers a night after losing to the Bulls in Chicago. The Pacers need to play with the same spirit they showed in Chicago to continue raising their level of play as the regular season approaches.

Danny Granger remains a game-time decision after leaving the game in Chicago with a calf strain which also had him shut it down early on Wednesday against the Mavericks. The Pacers are 0-5 which isn't a big problem since it is preseason, but the big 0 in the win column just looks ugly. Find a way to win one, fellas.

For the Cavs, Dion Waiters is questionable after missing their last game on Thursday with a hip injury. The Cavs have heightened expectations with all of their young talent coming together nicely, led by Kyrie Irving. If they can ever get Andrew Bynum on the floor, the Cavs will be a handful all year.
