The Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Sunday at the Quicken Loans Arena.
The Indiana Pacers look for their fourth straight win to get a game above a .500 record. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 93.7 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 97 points on 44 percent shooting. Paul George is averaging 21.5 points and nine rebounds while George Hill is averaging 15 points and 3.5 assists. Jordan Hill is grabbing eight rebounds and Monta Ellis is dishing 5.2 assists. The Indiana Pacers are coming away with 9.7 steals and have allowed less than 100 points in four straight games. The Pacers will be a threat as long as Paul George continues to play at a high level, and he has 62 points in his last two games. C.J. Miles and Rodney Stuckey are questionable.

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to keep rolling with six straight victories. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 102.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 92.2 points on 42.7 percent shooting. Kevin Love is averaging 16.2 points and 11.5 rebounds while Mo Williams is averaging 15.5 points and five assists. Tristan Thompson is grabbing 10.3 rebounds and Matthew Dellavedova is dishing 5.7 assists. The Cleveland Cavaliers are grabbing 48.2 rebounds per game and turning the ball over just 14 times on average. The Cavs are playing well even with injuries and have won six straight regular season home games. J.R. Smith and LeBron James are questionable.
The Pacers are 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 Sunday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Pacers are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Cavs are still banged up and aren't exactly blowing teams out even when they're healthy for the most part. The Pacers are showing that they can be a playoff team in the East, as Paul George is playing at a high level again. I'll take a shot with the points here.
