The Indiana Pacers are back home looking to remain unbeaten in the infant stages of the regular season. After rallying from apparent defeat to bring home their second win from New Orleans, the Pacers face a similar foe to the Pelicans in a Cleveland team relying on developing young talent and the added dimension of depth this season.

Kyrie Irving makes the Cavs go and is always a challenge for George Hill, with or without a sore hip. Fellow first round draft picks, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson team up with a healthy Anderson Varejao to give the Cavs a formidable first five.

The reserve units should create some intriguing matchups as well with Jarrett Jack, C.J. Miles and Andrew Bynum offering a veteran presence for Mike Brown's team. Speaking of Brown, he will begin his hoop-filled day with a trip to Hinkle Fieldhouse to check on his son Elijah play in Butler's final exhibition game against DePauw before coaching the Cavs on Saturday night.

UPDATE: George Hill is OUT tonight. C.J. Watson will start in his place. For Cleveland, they will not play Andrew Bynum, avoiding back-to-backs at this time.
