After an injury-riddled run and with playoff seeding on the line, the Lakers might have LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder in lineup against Pacers.
The Indiana Pacers have secured the last spot (ninth in the standings) in the Eastern Conference's play-in tournament for a postseason berth, and they have former Michigan star Caris LeVert to thank, in a lot of ways. LeVert was traded to the club in January, and during that process, a cancerous mass was found on his kidney, forcing him to miss over two months of game time. Then, on Tuesday night, it was LeVert, who has scored 20 or more points in eight of his last nine outings, including four 30-plus-point performances, punching Indiana's ticket into the aforementioned three-team play-in tournament.
You may get the answer wrong when somebody asks you to name the state capital of Indiana on Friday, May 14. Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett issued a proclamation that officially declared the City of Indianapolis to be renamed "Block City" for one day in support of Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner's NBA Defensive Player of the Year campaign. More than 500 people have signed a petition in support of giving the Pacers center the postseason award.
