(Cleveland, OH) - The Pacers will try to even their best-of-seven series with the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight after losing game one on Saturday 109-to-108.

Tonight's match-up becomes even more important for Indiana because Cleveland has never lost a playoff series in which they were up two-games-to-none.

In game one, the Cavaliers scored 66 points in the first half and shot nearly 54 percent from the field for the game. If there is hope to salvage game two of the series, Nate McMillan knows changes need to be made on the defensive end of the floor.

"We have to be more aggressive," McMillan told the IndyStar before practice on Sunday. "We have to be up closer to our guys and execute our rules in the pick-and-rolls. They run a ton of pick-and-rolls with multiple combinations. It's important that we do our assignments and execute them. We never really got to that in the first half. We've got to play harder and be more physical in our defensive coverages."

The ball goes up between the Pacers and Cavs tonight at seven in at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
