Cavaliers vs. Pacers, Game 6: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

New, comments

The Pacers have to win to extend their season and once again, LeBron James looms on the other side trying to finish off the Blue and Gold.

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers host the Cavaliers for Game 6 at the Fieldhouse on Friday night.

After letting Game 5 slip away in Cleveland on Wednesday, the Pacers’ margin for error has evaporated putting the Blue and Gold in a do-or-die situation against LeBron James...again. Frustrating mistakes and execution issues have littered the Pacers losses in this series after putting together an impressive Game 1 effort. The desperate circumstances should bring out best in the Pacers with no tomorrow or Game 7 to fall back on.

Not hard to figure out what the Pacers have to do: Play better.

Oh, and make sure you push that lead to two possession in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter. LeBron will find a way to score, if not. He’s knocked the Pacers out in four of their last five playoff appearances. Please make it stop!

Gotta count on crowd at BLF to not give in either and bring the nuttiness!
