The Pacers are in Cleveland on Wednesday night to complete their current four-game roadie against the Cavaliers.
The Pacers have lost the prior three games in a variety of ways, including being embarrassed at times while not challenging for a W against the Sixers in their last game. Some pride should ooze from the Pacers in Cleveland considering their last outing and the four-game losing streak they are riding regardless of the injury situation.
The Cavs are in a similar injury situation with vets Kevin Love and others missing games along with Andre Drummond no longer being in the mix as the Cavs let their youngins play while looking to make a move before the trade deadline. Those young guys are are problem and the Cavs have won their last four games after dropping 10 consecutive during a rough stretch of games comparable to what is on the horizon for the Pacers.
But, again, when you look at the depth of available players for both teams, the Pacers have to bring enough to win this game on the road because along with any family and friends, the Nuggets will be waiting in Indy for the Pacers to return for the last game before the break on Thursday.
