The Pacers are back on the road to finish their season series against the Cavs.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports
The Pacers complete their season series against the Cleveland Cavliers on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena. A win would complete a sweep of the series since the Pacers are 3-0 this season against LeBron and the boys.

The Cavs will look a bit different this time around with Tristan Thompson expected to start, presumably for Jae Crowder giving the Cavs a more traditional "big" lineup. Although, they also will have Isaiah Thomas (not so big in stature, but a big scoring threat) for the first time against the Pacers. The changes come as the Cavs search for answers after losing six of their last seven games.

The Pacers struggled to shoot threes in their last three road games but will need to remain on the attack and let it fly against the Cavs' porous defense. Myles Turner (elbow) remains out for the Pacers. Darren Collison returns to the lineup after missing the last game due to personal reasons.

Oh, and Lance will be playing on the same court as LeBron so make sure you tune in, should be fun.
