Cavs' Tyronn Lue Plans 10-Man Playoff Rotation

Cavs' Tyronn Lue Plans 10-Man Playoff Rotation

In the most surprising result of the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs so far, the Indiana Pacers waltzed into Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday afternoon and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers by 18 points to take a 1-0 lead in their first-round series. They've relied on solid contributions throughout the board with Victor Oladipo providing the star power. IN will try to force switches and get Love, JR Smith, Calderon, or Clarkson on him, and that will be the biggest test for the Cavaliers.

When you have the best player in the world, you are formidable.

Cleveland was ice cold out of the gates and things didn't get better as the game wore on. There wasn't much to talk about offensively for the Cavaliers in the contest: LeBron James continued his solid play as he posted a triple-double with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. This season, those numbers were 17.6 and 9.3.

His teammates and opponents may change from year to year in the postseason. All I can say, don't count out these underdogs. "I know what's at stake". As James said, "Physically, I'm where I should be, I'm as healthy as you can be". "Not even the players I played with before..."

Love shot.458 from the field this season, including.415 on 3-pointers, and.880 at the line. Just when it looked like LeBron and the Pacers were ready to play out an old familiar script, IN stepped on the gas and turned things into a blowout. Hopefully, we get Good Jeff Green. "If Kevin's trailing in, that's a wide-open shot for him". Indeed, despite playing Cleveland tough, IN was swept. "When they're running the floor, that opens everything up for Kevin". Cavs coach Tyronn Lue hasn't announced his starters.

The laid-back UCLA product, however, is more focused on his team's performance than what he does individually.

Knicks head coaching rumors: Mike Woodson added to the search
Last year's drama-filled offseason created concern that Kristaps Porzingis' time in NY would end before it could even truly begin. The Knicks are looking for a new head coach following the firing of Jeff Hornacek last week after two seasons in charge.

"A number of us are just going to have to pick it up on the offensive end, whether it be Bron or myself and everybody really so in that regard just showing leadership", Love said after practice on April 13. "It's well-documented we only have four guys left from that (2016) championship team (James, Love, Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith), but we have a lot of veteran, savvy guys with a ton of experience. So we'll see what happens".

Cleveland came out with a sense of urgency to start the second quarter, getting out in transition and scoring the first seven points of the period.

"We'll defend him with our guys", Coach McMillan said. "It feels good to be headed into Sunday at 100 percent".

It's time for the NBA Playoffs and the Cleveland Cavaliers are primed for another run towards an appearance in the NBA Finals, but this year may be more challenging than ever before.

The Pacers enter the playoffs in the eyes of many the same way they entered the season.

Love missed 23 games to injury, but averaged 17.6 points and a team-best 9.3 rebounds. Let's take a look at the matchup and how we predict it will play out.
