The NBA is the biggest basketball league in the world, and a key reason behind its status is the ability to adapt according to what fans demand.
Many fans have complained about the league’s stagnant regular season over the last few seasons, and the NBA decided to spice things up with an In-Season Tournament.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers are part of East Group A and will play against each other in the NBA In-Season Tournament.
Ahead of the crucial game, the Cavaliers fanbase was delivered good news by Sam Amico via his official Twitter handle.

Amico revealed that Jarrett Allen and Darius Garland’s injury status has been updated to questionable for the Cavs at Pacers in the In-Season Tournament game.
Allen is yet to make his season debut due to injuries, while Garland played just a single game.
But if they can return to action against the Pacers, it’ll allow the Cavaliers to breathe a huge sigh of relief.
After all, the Cavaliers have started the season with a 2-3 record and are in desperate need of improvement over the next few weeks.
If Allen and Garland return to the team, it’ll allow them to compete on a level footing with several teams in the Eastern Conference.
Allen averaged 14.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game for the team last season, while Garland put up 21.6 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game.
If the duo returns to the roster soon, the Cavaliers can once again focus on becoming one of the top-four seeds in the Eastern Conference.
