Cavaliers can clinch tonight

A little break from all the Buckeye talk for a moment....

Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Indiana Paces at 7pm. If the Cavs win, they will clinch a playoff spot. Granted, I never feared the possibility of missing the playoffs, but it's comfortable to be in and wrangling for position.

If the Cavs win, they'll be 43-28, while the 9th-place Pacers will be 31-39. We'd be 11.5 games up on the 9th-place team, and the worst possible scenario puts us tied with Indiana...and we own the tiebreaker, courtesy of a 3-1 series win over the Pacers.

So there it is. Win tonight and clinch.

Oh, and also...the Cavs, despite a really bad week, still are one game better than they were last year at this time.
