The Cleveland Cavaliers lost their opening game of the 2018 NBA playoffs, the first time in over five years that LeBron James lost a Game 1 in the opening round. However, they didn't just lose the game but have a starter as questionable heading into Game 2 and might need to adjust their lineup to fix that hole while trying to turn things around against the Indiana Pacers. The injured player is superstar point guard George Hill, who is listed as questionable with back problems. Kyle Korver also missed practice on Monday and is listed as day-to-day.

Cavaliers change lineup due to injuries

The Cleveland Cavaliers might be without their starting point guard George Hill and will need to figure out how to go about fixing that problem as they try to rebound from their embarrassing Game 1 loss to the Indiana Pacers. The biggest problems with the Cavs this season has been defensive mistakes. Against the Pacers, they struggled to score points as well and that needs to change.

George Hill took a shot to the back from Trevor Booker on Sunday and was still hurting on Monday. Lue said that Hill is still stiff and wasn't able to do much on Monday.

If the Cavs are without George Hill, they are once again down their starting point guard. The idea is that Tyronn Lue is making changes to the Cleveland Cavaliers starting lineup, even more than just replacing Hill at point guard.

The first line of action could be to move Jose Calderon to the starting point guard position and leaving PG or Nance back to Center and Love back to PF

Lue also said that the Cleveland Cavaliers are probably going to play Tristan Thompson a lot more, which is a turnaround from when he moved Thompson and J.R. Smith to the bench for Game 1.

J.R. Smith had a solid Game 1 and Lue hinted that Thompson will get more playing time as well.

Rodney Hood admitted that the Cleveland Cavaliers have to play a lot better in Game 2 and added that the team can't play any worse than they did.

Tyronn Lue said that the Cleveland Cavaliers will work on "chopping" down the rotation for Game 2.

Examples include the fact that Kevin Love needs a lot more than eight shots in a game. Lue called out Love, saying that he can't just float around when a smaller player is covering him and he has to demand the ball in the post.

Lue also said that LeBron James has to play with more aggression from the jump. Lue said that LeBron has to set the tone early with aggressive play in order to get the Cleveland Cavaliers moving. At the end of the day, Lue said that the Cavs have to play aggressive and he would rather mistakes come from aggressive play rather than just settling for their shots.
