Forward LeBron James spoke to the media on Thursday.
The Cavaliers will take on the
on Friday night. The Pacers have had the Cavaliers number this season, defeating them two times.
"It's a different game for one, Regular season and playoff games are different games in a way of preparations. For myself, I prepare deeper for a playoff game than I would for a regular season game, you can't really exude that much energy into a regular season game," LeBron said when asked why his team's have been so successful in the playoffs against team that have defeated them in the regular season, " my teams have always been prepared when the playoffs started no matter who the opponent was."
LeBron was asked about the possibility of Pacers star Paul George coming back, "I really don't care about if he can come back this year, all I care about is if he is 100% healthy. As a competitor and as a friend of his, playing basketball is the least of my worries for him. I just want him to be healthy and if he feels he's ready to get back on the floor and play at this competitive level then that's great but all I care about is him being 110% coming back and when he's ready for it then he should go at it."
George suffered a leg injury while playing for the national team last summer.
The Cavaliers and Pacers will tip off at 7:30 P.M. on Friday from
