Watch Cleveland Cavs vs Indiana Pacers Online Live Streaming: NBA Playoffs Game 1 on ABC

on

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers begin another Eastern Conference title defense against the Indiana Pacers Sunday in Game 1 on ABC TV. Alternatively you can watch Cavs vs Pacers live online streaming either with or without cable as day two of the 2018 NBA Playoffs continues with the second of four games on tap.

It’s hard to predict where this series is headed. If you look back at the Cavaliers vs Pacers regular season game then Indiana holds a 3-1 advantage.

Can you really do that? LeBron James has historically hit another gear in the postseason. Case in point: last year the Cavs swept the Pacers right out of the postseason.

There’s also the matter of Cleveland’s new-look lineup and a healthy Kevin Love back in the starting five as the second scoring for the first time. The big trade that brought in George Hill, Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson came after the season series was wrapped up.

Only four players remain from the 2016 Cleveland team that won it all. This year, Kyrie Irving will not be running the point.

Indiana’s got a new look as well with Paul George gone and Victor Oladipo replacing him as the team’s best player. Oladipo has thrived in Indiana’s offense and has set career highs in points, assists and rebounds this past season.

When 4 and 5 seeds meet there should be a competitive series as a result. The Cavs vs Pacers series has all the markings of going the distance.
