Can the Pacers maintain the pace they set in Milwaukee when they take on the defending Eastern Conference champs?

The Indiana Pacers visit the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second of four preseason games at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Pacers were off and running in their win over Milwaukee on Wednesday and shot 31 threes. That is certainly a point of emphasis with this team although last season the Pacers opened preseason with 34 three-point attempts but then only shot 30 or more threes six times during the regular season.

That likely won’t be the case this year, but we’ll see if they can keep up the volume shooting for at least two preseason games.

The Cavs have some new faces including a couple of old Pacers’ nemeses, Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade. Fortunately, neither remain at the height of their game nor will they be running alongside LeBron James (ankle). Isaiah Thomas (hip) is also out for an extended period of time.

The Pacers will be without Glenn Robinson III (ankle) and Edmond Sumner (knee). Ike Anigbogu (knee rehab) is questionable.

FOX Sports Indiana is not broadcasting this game, but the Cavs TV team will be broadcasting to you have the option to find the feed through any means necessary. As always, Mark Boyle will be providing HD visual with his radio call.
