Game Preview

Game four preview: Cleveland Cavaliers @ Indiana Pacers

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a must win situation as they take on the Indiana Pacers in game four of the first round. The Cavs are currently down 2-1 in a series where it has shocked a lot of people.

The Cavaliers blew a 17-point lead in game three at Indiana and lost by two. Tonight is a must win game for the Cavs, who want to avoid going down 3-1 in a series. Yes, the Cavs came back from 3-1 deficit before, but this is a different Cavs team that still has a lot of flaws.

Previous scores:

Game one: Indiana — 96, Cleveland — 80.
Game two: Cleveland — 100, Indiana — 97.
Game three: Indiana — 92, Cleveland — 90.
Indiana leads series 2-1.

It will be interesting to see if the Cavs come out with some sense of urgency and effort on both ends of the floor. Something we really have not seen all series long.

LeBron James teams have never lost a first round series.
