Pacers Look To Continue Hot Streak In Cleveland

Last updated on Wednesday, April 11, 2012

(Cleveland, OH) - The Indiana Pacers are on the road tonight as they face the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Pacers are 35-22 and are holding down the number-three seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Cleveland is playing game-two of a back-to-back.

The Cavaliers are coming off a 103-90 win over the woeful Charlotte Bobcats last night in Cleveland. The Cavs were without Kyrie Irving.

Irving has been out a week with a shoulder injury and is expected to miss tonight's game, as well.

The second-year point guard out of Duke leads Cleveland in scoring at almost 19 points per game followed by Antawn Jamison at 18 points per contest.

The Cavaliers have been getting outstanding play of late from guard Lester Hudson, who is working on his second ten-day contract.

Hudson led Cleveland against the Bobcats with a game-high 25 points and has averaged just under 25 points per game the last three games.

The Pacers and Cavaliers have split their first two games this season with each team winning on its home court.

The season series wraps up Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
