The No. 2 seed Cavaliers will kick off their postseason against the No. 7 seed Pacers on Saturday afternoon on ABC. Though the Cavaliers are highly favored, this is still one of the most exciting series of the first round given the return of Lance Stephenson to Indiana and the rivalry between Paul George and LeBron James. Even though James is with a new team now, we hope to see bits and pieces from those old Heat-Pacers battles.
The Cavaliers come into the playoffs on a four-game losing streak, while the Pacers went on a five-game win streak to end their season and earn a spot in the playoffs. While momentum may factor into things, the Cavaliers did win their regular season series 3-1 and will look to do more of the the same in the playoffs as they make another run at the NBA Finals.
