Pacers Podcast: LeBron James sits, Pacers win turning into an annual ritual at Fieldhouse

The latest Locked on Pacers podcast hits on the Pacers beating the Cavs and both sides of DNP-Rest for NBA stars.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Indiana Pacers Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Fieldhouse lost some juice last night when word made the rounds that LeBron James would take the night off when the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Pacers.

This is the third time LeBron has logged a DNP-Rest in Indy but as I warned on the pod before the game, the timing was perfect for the night off.

But there are two sides of the story and many NBA fans from a broad area around Indy are hit with a rough reality of wasting a lot of money, time and effort when a star like LeBron watches a game from the bench.

The silver lining for the Pacers is that they are 3-0 in ‘Bron-less encounters and continue to build a little momentum on the defensive end of the floor following their 103-93 win which included 12 blocked shots with 5 credited to Monta Ellis. Really?
