Can the Pacers take another step forward? Detroit struggled under Stan Van Gundy. Can Dwane Casey make it work with Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond get the Pistons back in the playoffs? Cleveland lost the king but hope to keep their mojo and playoff streak alive. Will Kevin Love be able to deliver?
Last but not least, Giannis Antetokounmpo has a new coach and his eyes on the Eastern Conference crown with LeBron on the Lakers. Can Giannis ascend to become the best player in the conference? Ben and Jason discuss all this and more on this week’s Baseline Jumper!
