With healthy roster, Tyronn Lue planning 10-man playoff rotation

"I think we've been nine in the past, but I think it's going to be important to go 10 for us because I like Clarkson being on the floor with a point guard, so that makes us play 10".

The Cavs have adjusted their lineup all season trying different combinations as a result of injuries to start the season and then trades that completely transformed their roster.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - With the playoffs just days away, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue typically would have his lineup rotations set by now.

Their opponent, the Indiana Pacers, have been one of the biggest surprises in the NBA this year as they've gotten an All-NBA season from Paul George trade piece Victor Oladipo; he's got to be the frontrunner for the NBA Most-Improved Player Award.

Cleveland struggled against IN in the regular season, losing the season series 3-1.

Lue refused to name his full starting lineup for Sunday's Game 1.

In the meantime, Lue says Rodney Hood is "ready to go" following an Achilles injury while Kyle Korver recovers from a foot injury.

Those would be the new guys, two of whom, Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson will be making their playoff debuts against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.

But more than that, Lue just wants to see his Cavs play hard. As his game continues to develop into an effective sidekick for James, teams will continue to struggle defending him.

"You usually go nine", Lue said, according to ESPN.

Hill, who has plenty of playoff experience with San Antonio, Indiana and Utah, said Cleveland's versatility may give the Cavs an advantage. I'm not friends with them either when I play them. "They're excited, we're excited, I'm excited, so I think they're doing a good job, and they'll be fine". It's also a chance to win a championship with James, a former playoff nemesis.

It's the fifth time in the last seven years the Pacers have faced LeBron James in the postseason.

That can't happen this time.

The Indiana Pacers aren't particularly great at anything, but they're pretty good at a lot of things. "I know what's at stake, I know I need to step up, but that's no different than in years past, I feel like".
