Last updated on Friday, December 30, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers look to start 3-and-0 for the first time in four years when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers moved to 2-and-0 with a 90-85 victory at Toronto on Wednesday night. The Cavaliers are 1-and-1 and are coming off a 105-89 win at Detroit on Wednesday night.

Danny Granger leads the blue-and-gold in scoring through two games, averaging 18.5 points per contest with second-year guard Paul George averaging 15 points. The Cavaliers are led in scoring by veteran forward Antawn Jamison, who averages 15 points per game.

Cleveland also features the number-one overall selection in last June's draft in point guard Kyrie Irving. The Duke University product is averaging ten points in his first two NBA games.

Following tonight's game, the Pacers embark on their longest road trip of the season, a four-game trip that begins Saturday night in Detroit.
