Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers
Friday April 20, 7 PM EST at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Indianapolis, IN
The Cavaliers levelled their series with the Pacers in Game 2 winning 100-97. King James was more aggressive than in Game 1 going for 46 points and grabbing 12 boards.
The Cavs shot in Game 2 after only shooting 38.5% from the floor in Game 1.
James was THE guy in Game 2, as Kevin Love was the 2nd leading scorer going for 15 points on only 5/16 shooting and only three players for Cleveland scored in double figures.
The Pacers had four players score in double figures led by Victor Oladipo going for 22 points after going for 32 points in Game 1. Indiana has to get off to a better start than they did in Game 2 being outscored by 15 points.
Just like in Game 2 Game 3 will be close, but James will do it all again and lead the Cavs to the win taking back home court advantage.
Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards
Friday April 20, 8:00 PM EST at Capital One Arena Washington, DC
There was no lack of offensive fireworks in Game 2 in this series with the Raptors beating the Wizards 130-119. DeMar DeRozan led Toronto going for 37 points and six players for the team went for at least 10 points.
John Wall led Washington with 29 points, but his backcourt mate in Bradley Beal struggled only going for nine points on 3/11 shooting. Look for Beal to get on track at home where the Wizards are five games over .500.
The Wizards have to play better D in this game and they will do that at home. That plus a better game from Beal means Washington will get the win and get back in the series.
