Cavs will face the Indiana Pacers tonight

The Cavaliers (1-1) will take on the Pacers in Indianapolis tonight.

Indiana (2-0) seems to have all the pieces to make another run at a title. They pushed the Heat to a seventh game last season in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Cavs took to the road for the first time Friday night and fell to Charlotte 90-84. Reserve C.J. Miles led the way with 22 points on 9-16 shooting in the loss.

The Cavs got off to a sluggish start and trailed by five at halftime.

Starter Dion Waiters was pulled in the third quarter and finished just 1-5 from the field and 2 points. Jarret Jack and Miles led the second half comeback with big shots and timely defense. They helped the Cavs tie the game at 84-84 with around 1 minute left in the fourth quarter.

Jack finished with 15 points and 3 assists.

The Bobcats would score the last six points of the game. Kemba Walker hit a back-breaking 3-pointer to put them up 87-84 with 58.3 seconds left. Jack would miss a 3-pointer on the other end for the Cavs.
