When: Sun., March 30 2014
Though the NCAA tournament has been blistering along with considerably more excitement than the NBA (or at least the league’s abysmal Eastern Conference), the season is nearly over for the Cavaliers. If you plan on paying your respects one more time, why not make it on an evening when they play the conference’s best team? The Pacers — for those are the Cavs’ foes tonight — have played such consistent basketball all year. It’ll be a treat to see their defensive grit on display. Kyrie’s still out with an injured biceps, but Dion Waiters and Jarrett Jack have both played well in the All-Star MVP’s absence. Heck, maybe even “sharp shooter” rookie Sergey Karasev will get some experimental minutes. Tipoff’s at 3 p.m. at the Q. Tickets start at $10. (Allard) 1 Center Ct., 216-420-2000, theqarena.com.
