NBA Playoffs: Previewing Cavs-Pacers Game 2, a couple areas of Cavs concern

New, comment

The Cavs are still working out rebounding and transition defense issues

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

With Game 2 of the opening round of the NBA Playoffs just a few hours away in Cleveland, what’s a bit more preview content? The Indiana Pacers held their shootaround practice at the Q this morning and I was able to swing by for it. Paul George, Nate McMillan, and Lance Stevenson addressed the media and what they are expecting to see tonight.

While there wasn’t anything groundbreaking, I took to Facebook Live to bring some updates and outline what I’m looking for tonight. If there is a flip that the Cavs can switch, how would we know? I gave two areas the Cavs could get better at immediately that they were a bit deficient with on Saturday. In reality, I’m not sure the Cavs will flip a switch as much as they will build themselves back into a very good team. They have three to four more games with the Pacers to build positive habits and improve. We’re all excited to see it happen.
