Cavaliers +1 at Pacers
A 46-point outing from LeBron James was only good enough for a 3-point victory against the Pacers in game 2 of the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs. The Cavaliers won’t be around much longer if somebody else doesn’t step up. Kevin Love partially tearing a ligament in his thumb doesn’t help the Cavs chances, as he is the one who needs to step up if this team wants to make it to the next round. Kyle Korver logged 30 minutes in game-2, which is yet another reason to be worried about the Cavs roster and chances of advancing in the series. On the other side, Indiana is getting contributions from numerous players, led by Victor Oladipo and goes as far as Lance Stephenson coming off the bench.
With all of that being said, you have to feel comfortable taking a LeBron James team in the first round of the playoffs, especially when they are considered a slight underdog in this game. Take the King and the Cavs plus the point, as you might never see this again.
