The real NBA season begins with the NBA Playoffs. 16 teams will be vying for the biggest prize in basketball. In the first round, the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Indiana Pacers. The Cavaliers have a good mix of young and veteran talent to support LeBron James. However, the Indiana Pacers have Victor Oladipo and an upstart team with a chip on their shoulders. Who advances? 🏀

If LeBron James is still on the Cavaliers, he always has a chance to take the Cavaliers to the championship. The King is having one of his best seasons 15 years into his career, averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 9.1 assists. 

James had one of the oldest teams at the beginning of the season but got an influx of young talent from around the league. The Pacers have no chance to knock him and Cleveland off.

Victor Oladipo was largely forgotten after his ill-fated stint with Russell Westbrook last season. This year, however, he has led the Pacers with some highlight reel dunks and clutch shooting. He has a team-high 23.1 points, but others, like Myles Turner and Bojan Bogdanovic, have given him enough backup to make the squad dangerous. 

With their ability to win close games, the Cavs won't be able to shut them down. The Pacers are going to run over Cleveland.
