The Pacers face the Cavs looking to avenge a loss at home earlier in the season.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers continue their homestand looking to build on a four-game winning streak when the host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This game will wrap up the season series which the Pacers lead 2-1 so far. Oh, but that one loss was a doozy. Not only was it at home, but the Cavs were quite short-handed while the Pacers were riding a seven-game winning streak coming into the game.

While the Pacers struggled much of the game, it appeared they would hang on to win, but a sudden surge by the Cavs and an egregious missed call on the final play saw Larry Nance, Jr maul Victor Oladipo before putting back the game-winner which left the Pacers and everyone else in the Fieldhouse in stunned outrage.

Safe to say, the Pacers won’t be overlooking the Cavs despite the fact they have lost their last three and nine of their last 11 games.
