On Friday night, basketball fans will watch Cavs vs. Pacers live streaming or televised coverage as Cleveland tries to overcome their struggles. The Cavaliers have now lost two-straight games and have won just twice over the past five games. Indiana is also looking to bounce back from their recent loss. Here’s a look at the matchup tonight with the odds to win, points total, trends, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Pacers live stream online feeds.
Tonight’s game will feature two teams hungry for wins after dropping their previous contests. For Cleveland, it’s been two-straight now, as the team followed up a loss at Minnesota with a loss at Toronto on Thursday night. In that game, LeBron James scored 26 points on 9-for-16 shooting, but it wasn’t enough to stop the rout. Toronto held their opponents to 38.2 percent shooting while hitting 50 percent of their shots.
For the Pacers, they fell to the Miami Heat 114-106 at home despite 26 points from Victor Oladipo. As of this report, Oladipo is fourth in voting for the NBA All-Star East in terms of guards, while “King” James is the top vote-getter for forwards and overall with 1,622,838. The Pacers have been one of the overachieving success stories this season as they have still looked decent in their first season without All-Star Paul George.
