KEY GAME INFORMATION
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.
INDIANA: GUARDS: GEORGE HILL is less of a creator and more of a game-manager/scorer, which fits fine in this starting five . . . LANCE STEPHENSON continues to be an enigma. His speed pushing the ball in transition is an asset, but his terrible shooting and bizarre decision-making often makes him a liability in the half court . . . C.J. WATSON has proven to be a capable second-unit point guard, but he's on his third team in three years because he's managed to give away two playoff games with monumentally bad moments . . . ORLANDO JOHNSON is unlikely to see meaningful minutes, but his role should grow slightly now that Gerald Green is gone. FORWARDS: This is PAUL GEORGE'S team. Once a do-it-all role player, he's now polished enough to create his own offense . . . As expected, DAVID WEST bounced back in his second season off a torn ACL. He's still deadly as a mid-range shooter, a savvy passer and a strong rebounder . . . LUIS SCOLA slides into Tyler Hansbrough's old role as a second-unit banger, and insurance for West and Roy Hibbert . . . DANNY GRANGER is in no-man's land. He's not better than Paul George, and probably no longer an upgrade over Lance Stephenson. His best asset may be his expiring deal . . . CHRIS COPELAND can't defend, but gives the Pacers a three-point threat . . . SOLOMON HILL doesn't figure to contribute this season. CENTERS: ROY HIBBERT proved capable of handling more minutes last season, but Indy will likely still be cautious with their asthmatic 7-foot-2 center during the regular season . . . IAN MAHINMI is back to give his six fouls and move some bodies out of the paint.

*Cavaliers-Pacers Preview* ==========================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Cleveland (1-0) at Indiana (2-0), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Paced by clutch shooting and tough defense, the Indiana Pacers are in position to win their first three games for the second time in three years.

A matchup against a Cleveland Cavaliers team they've dominated in recent seasons should help get them there.

The Pacers look to extend their strong start by beating the visiting Cavaliers for the seventh straight time Saturday night.

Coming off a postseason run in which he averaged 14.6 points, George Hill bounced back from a quiet opener with 19 points in Wednesday's 95-90 win at New Orleans.

He went 4 for 7 from 3-point range, including one with 31.1 seconds left that helped the Pacers complete a 16-point, second-half comeback.

"I'm a big believer in not being scared to make a play," Hill said. "Sometimes you're going to hit it and sometimes you're not and I hit it."

Back home for the first time since a 97-87 victory over Orlando in the opener, Hill will try to continue his success there versus the Cavaliers (1-1). He's scored at least 15 in his last four games against them in Indianapolis, including 27 in a 99-94 victory April 9 that gave the Pacers (2-0) a four-game season sweep.

All-Star Paul George had 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting in that contest to continue his struggles against Cleveland. In eight career starts, he's averaged 10.5 points while shooting 36.6 percent from the field.

During his breakout 2012-13, George scored 27 points to lead Indiana to a 96-81 home win in the first meeting before averaging 12.7 on 13-of-34 shooting in his last three.

George, however, has gotten off to a strong start heading into this contest. He had a game-high 32 points Wednesday, one night after finishing with 24 against the Magic.

Lance Stephenson also hopes to continue his solid play after going for 19 and 16 points while shooting a combined 15 of 24 from the floor.

The defensive-minded Pacers limited their first two opponents to 90 points or less while holding them below 40 percent from the field. Led by Roy Hibbert's 12 blocks, they also top the NBA in rejections with 30.

The Cavs managed just 88.5 points on 39.3-percent shooting in last year's season series. They'll attempt to regroup after shooting 38.1 percent and missing 14 of 18 from 3-point range in a 90-84 loss at Charlotte on Friday.

The Bobcats' Kemba Walker hit a 3-pointer over Kyrie Irving with 58 seconds left to break a tie, and Cleveland was unable to answer in its two final chances.

"Right now it's not good, especially to start the game and we are getting too many 'My bads,'" coach Mike Brown said. "And when you get two or three 'My bads' from each individual, it adds up."

Irving finished with 16 points, giving him 31 on 11-of-33 shooting in his first two games. The star guard has averaged 18.3 points but shot 39.6 from the floor and committed 16 turnovers in his three meetings with Indiana.

Tristan Thompson has been a bright spot with 39 points and 20 rebounds in his first two games. He had double-doubles in two of four games against the Pacers last season.

Cleveland hasn't won in Indiana since Jan. 29, 2010, and has lost 12 of 13 meetings overall.
