The playoffs are finally here.

Basketball fans will #Watch Pacers vs. Cavs #live streaming online and televised game coverage on Sunday afternoon as the two Eastern Conference foes battle. Defensively, the Pacers are yielding 104.2 points per game against the opposing teams.

The Cavaliers no longer have a "Big Three", so they're going to need big performances from their "Dynamic Duo" if they are to have another long playoff run. With the emergence of Victor Oladipo as the go to guy, the Pacers are considered to be a contender in the East.

But this is about the Cavs. IN won the opening game of the series 98-80 on Sunday afternoon.

Once there, however, Oladipo continued his fantastic performance, scoring 10 points en route to helping the Pacers end the game on a 22-11 run.

Game 2 of the Cavaliers-Pacers series isn't until April 18. He also picked up a technical for a hard foul on LeBron James.

James scored 24 with 12 assists and 10 rebounds for his 20th career triple-double. The Cavaliers ranked 12th in pace this season.

"That's great for Coach [Tyronn] Lue and the coaching staff that we have everybody available for the first time this season". Larry Nance Jr has also provided some much-needed competition for Tristan Thompson. He was only on five of the rest of the lineups.

Lue knows that Cleveland's defense will be key to their success.

Offensively, Cleveland has the ability to blow out anybody.

This is a spunky team. Oladipo wasn't seen as a franchise-changing player when IN acquired him along with Domantas Sabonis IN the trade for Paul George. They can still regain control of this series if they can find a way to slow Oladipo who looks like a full-blown superstar in the making.

However, huge contributions from a number of players led to a solid season for Indiana.

"We're going to have to bring those other guys along, but there's nothing better than just throwing yourself into it".

Love will likely start off against Myles Turner, one of the few remaining holdovers from the squad Cleveland faced in the First Round a year ago.

Better protect those chins, Pacers.

"I mean, I don't have any concerns".

At some point in the future, the Cavs are going to reach for the metaphorical switch and there will be no electricity. It's not surprising, since they have what many consider to the best player on the planet. However, that's probably not happening yet.

Best Online Sportsbook Picks: The money line is favoring the Cavs too heavily to make them a decent option straight up.

The Pacers completely outplayed the three-time defending conference champions, whose turbulent regular season has carried over into the playoffs. They all understand it. "They still don't believe". Those Pacers, though, didn't have Oladipo (32 points) or the balance of this Indy squad, which may lack experience but not confidence. IN managed to get some revenge after failing to win a game against the Cavaliers in 2017. Presumably, they'll have a plan for this type of thing.
