The Pacers have to adjust their internal game clocks on Tuesday for a 3 p.m. ET tip against the Cleveland Cavaliers. That means altering their schedule to raise the intensity at a time during the day when they are normally just starting to shake off an afternoon nap or rest following a shootaround.
Fortunately, two teams are playing under the same circumstances so it shouldn't be a factor in the outcome. Besides, as Mark Montieth noted in a conversation on Twitter about the players reaction to the early tip, Lance Stephenson is looking forward to playing this afternoon.
Umm...is it possible we've been watching a scaled-back version of Lance? He has a higher 'hype' level? This should be fun.
