The Pacers made it to Cleveland before the monster snow storm hit Indy which offers all of us hoop heads stuck at home some entertainment on Sunday night when the Blue and Gold take on the Cavaliers for the second time in less than a week.

The Cavs will likely be without Kyrie Irving after a knee contusion suffered last Tuesday against the Pacers and stayed home for the team's game in Brooklyn on Saturday night. That escalates Jarrett Jack to the starting point guard spot. Hopefully he delivers at least on jumping Jack turnover for ol' times' sake.

The Pacers remain relatively healthy after two months of NBA action. Danny Granger has played well off the bench in his last three games which included a back-to-back. We'll see how much he has left in the tank tonight after scoring 13 points in the Pacers win over New Orleans last night.

The Pacers are 26-6 but every game remains critical to their cause of securing the top seed in the East. They have a great opportunity to add to that win total tonight, but as usual, must show up ready to win, since just showing up still isn't an option for this team.
