Pretty much everyone has their own suggestions on the adjustments the Cleveland Cavaliers must make as they head to Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
That includes Stephen A. Smith of ESPN, who said on First Take that Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue should reinsert J.R. Smith into the starting lineup.
Smith, who was a starter on the three Cleveland teams that reached the last three NBA Finals, was sent to the bench late in the season by Lue after a regular-season performance filled with inconsistency.
Stephen A., though, said the time has come to go back to J.R., who had 15 points off the bench in the 98-80 loss to the Pacers in Game 1.
