After finally making the playoffs, the Pacers have a tough task ahead of them starting on Saturday afternoon when they tip off the the NBA playoffs against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.
Following the win on Wednesday, Paul George said he is looking forward to matching up with LeBron once again in the playoffs. James will play Saturday on a full week of rest after sitting out Cleveland’s final two regular season games.
LBJ will flip the switch to playoff mode, but that first game may be the Pacers chance to steal one in Cleveland as the rest of the Cavs also have to flip the switch.
