The Indiana Pacers wrap up their nasty three-game stretch against top talent in much the same way it began. The Pacers caught the Golden State Warriors without Stephen Curry last Sunday and on Friday night they host the Cleveland Cavaliers without Kyrie Irving.
The Cavs ruled Irving out after and MRI showed a shoulder sprain that needs attention. The Pacers will still have to contend with LeBron James who was otherworldly on Thursday night in the Cavs' win over the Warriors. Hopefully the Pacers can take advantage of 'Bron on the back-to-back without the usual supporting cast.
The two teams split their first two meetings with the Pacers closing strong down the stretch three weeks ago to win 103-99. Reserve guard Matthew Dellavedova will have to play a bigger role this time around without Kyrie, although he did provide a highlight moment in the last game.
