Preview: Pacers at Cavaliers, March 17th

March 17th, 2010 by John Krolik

Relevant Statistics:

Pace: Indiana 99.9 (2nd) vs. Cleveland 93.3 (25th)

Offensive Efficiency: Indiana 99.6 (28th) vs. Cleveland 109.3 (3rd)

Defensive Efficiency: Indiana 104.6 (17th) vs. Cleveland 101. (7th)

Notes:

-The Pacers like to run but aren’t particularly good at it — this should be a fun one for the small-ball Cavs, although they can’t fall asleep and give up wide-open opportunities in transition.

-I wish Telfair was active for this one.

-The Pacers are playing the second game of a back-to-back, and had the Bobcats last night. Hopefully the Bobcats wore them out a bit.
