The Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers played one of the closest rounds of the first round, with each team making two games each. This is an unknown reason for LeBron James, who untypically lost a lot 1
The Cavs survived because of course LeBron was incredible. His 32 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists gave the Cavs a 104-100 victory on their last outing.
The problem was to find a second scorer. Kyle Korver took this role with 18 points in Game 4, but in this role he is not a consistent option. To make matters harder, George Hill will miss game 5 with a back injury.
Is it finally time for Kevin Love to appear in this series? The Pacers have limited him to one-digit scores in two out of four games, and shot 36 percent off the field for the series. It will not, and the Cavs need more of him.
Even the pacemakers need their star to return. Victor Oladipo has shot 10 out of 30 in the last two games, including 4 of 16 from the bottom. If Indiana wants to regain control of this series, she will need him to get back into shape.
