(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are Central Division champions for the first time in nine years and begin the final stretch of the regular season tonight when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Indiana has dominated Cleveland recently, taking 11 of the last 12 meetings between the two teams, and need a win to narrow the two and a half game lead by the New York Knicks for the second best record in the Eastern Conference.
The Cavaliers followed a 10 game losing streak with back-to-back wins over the Orlando Magic and Boston Celtics last weekend, and can win three straight games for the first time since early February.
Tipoff between the Cavaliers and Pacers in Indianapolis is at 7:00.
