Indiana Pacers vs Cleveland Cavaliers
Sabonis is not having the best of games in terms of production recently as he has failed to score 15 or more points in any of his last 7 games but he has a nice opportunity to boost his numbers today.
The Cavs, who are shorthanded due to injuries, have some trouble with their depth in the front line and with the exception of Larry Nance (who plays in Center since the injury of Thompson) and veteran Frye who barely gets minutes, they have no other big guys in general but also particularly capable of taking Sabonis' challenge.
Sabonis' minutes are sort of 'protected' as his playing time is very precise so far, he comes from the bench in the last 4 minutes of the first quarter up until the first half of the second Q and then repeat that in the second half thus there should not be much difference whether the Pacers will have a huge lead or not. The offered line is quite intriguing and surprising, someone could very much sense a trap, but this is a must bet either way.
