Pacers Update – May
The season started off so promising for the Indiana Pacers, as they looked like arguably
the best team in the entire National Basketball Association over the first half of the 2013-14 campaign. However, something
seemed to change over the last month of the regular season, as the team struggled on the court and rumblings of issues in
the locker room could be heard. The Pacers were still able to earn the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, but it
was quickly evident that the team had not smoothed out their issues. The Pacers found themselves matched up with the Atlanta
Hawks, a team that failed to notch a.500 record in the regular season. However, that did not stop Atlanta from taking it to
Indian in Game 1 of their first-round series. The Hawks did not squeak this victory out, but won convincingly. Atlanta point
guard Jeff Teague, who has been very good for the entire series, led the charge with 28 points. The Pacers did not seem to
have an answer for the speedy, athletic point guard.
The Pacers battled back, though, taking Game 2. However, they would
drop Game 3. The clubs would trade games over the next two contests as well, and Indiana would find themselves in a 3-2 hole
heading into Philips Arena for Game 6. The Pacers entered the fourth quarter down to Atlanta, but they managed to pull off
the victory late in the game to even the series and send it back to Indianapolis for Game 7. David West and Paul George game
up big for the Pacers in Game 6, as both players scored 24 points. Game 7 is win or go home for the Pacers, and they would
certainly like to avoid being ousted by a club that many considered to be the worst into the playoffs heading into the first
Pacers Update – April
The Indiana Pacers have been one of the best teams in the National
Basketball Association for most of the 2013-14 season, but March was not a kind month to this club. The Pacers struggled for
parts of the month, ultimately losing 10 of their 18 games in March. Indiana is engrossed in a battle for the top spot in
the Eastern Conference standings, a distinction that could make of world of different if the team is able to reach the Conference
Finals again this season. The Pacers have not had any injuries to blame their swoon on, and word is that they've been conscious
of their problems and are simply having a hard time fixing them. This is likely the worst time of the year to be undergoing
a period like this one, and the team only has a handful of regular season games in the month of April before the playoffs
The Pacers did get a big win against the Miami Heat on March 26 in what was a defensive battle. Indiana
came back in the fourth quarter to secure a one-point victory in this contest. Paul George had a big game for the Pacers,
notching 23 points and eight boards. George started the season looking like one of the five best players in the entire league,
and though he has slowed down a bit and had the kind of bumps in the road that one would expect from a young player, he still
has helped taken this Pacers team to the next level thanks to his presence as a go-to offensive options as well as a lockdown
defender on the other side of the court. The Pacers know that they're going to have to go through the Miami Heat to get to
the NBA Finals this season, so a victory like this one is a good confidence boost for a team that may be lacking in that area
a bit recently.
Pacers Update – March
The Indiana Pacers maintained their hold on the best record
in the Eastern Conference throughout the month of February thanks to a 9-3 record for the month. The Pacers look like a real
contender for the NBA Championship, and they continue to prove that they're capable of defeating quality teams. On February
7th the Pacers were able to take down the Portland Trail Blazers in overtime. The Trail Blazers are having an unexpectedly
strong season in the competitive Western Conference thanks to the stellar play of both LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard.
Lillard was the one who shined in this contest, dropping a whopping 38 points and 11 assists. Aldridge chipped in 22 points
of his own, but did not have the most efficient shooting night (9 of 24). George Hill exploded for Indiana, though, posting
his best performance of the season, perhaps in his career. Hill dropped 37 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in the
game, and David West added 30 points and 10 rebounds of his own.
Three days later the Pacers were able to defeat the
Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets have not been the same team as they were last season, and Indiana exploited their weaknesses in
this game. West had an efficient shooting game, hitting 11 of his 13 shots from the field for 25 points. Each Pacers starter
scored in double figures, as the team continued to show that they're a well-rounded group of players. Paul George experienced
a bit if a slump through most of February, but the team rallied around him. This Pacers squad looks like a real threat to
dethroning the reigning three-time Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat, but they'll need George to play like the superstar
that he is capable of being. The Pacers will look to hold on to their lead in the Eastern Conference ranks in March.
The Indiana Pacers - Schedule in 2013-14
The Indiana Pacers are ready to set the pace this season as they set
their sights on the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers have one of the best teams in the East, and are looking
to prove it throughout the season by dominating any opponent that dares step onto the court at Banker's Life Fieldhouse. The
Pacers were able to earn the third seed in the third seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs last season by finishing atop
the Central Division standings, and saw forward Paul George blossom into a star player during the postseason. The team will
look for George to continue his development in 2013-14, as it would give this well-rounded team the star they need to compete
for an NBA Championship. The Pacers have their sights set high this season, as they should, but the team is going to have
to take down some of the top teams in the league at home this season. It should be a great season to be a Pacers fan, and
Indiana is sure to see some great turnouts in the stands at Banker's Life Fieldhouse, especially for the biggest of matchups
Some of the biggest matchups of the Indiana Pacers season in 2013-14 will come when the Miami Heat visit
Indiana. The Heat were able to take down the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, but not without a formidable
fight from the scrappy Indiana team. However, with Paul George assuming a larger role for the Pacers this could be the year
that Indiana gets the best of the reigning NBA Champions. Every game between the Heat and Pacers at Banker's Life Fieldhouse
is sure to be an incredible spectacle to attend in person, and the stands will be packed to the brim with dedicated NBA fans.
The matchups between George and Heat star LeBron James could be one of the better one-on-one situations you'll see in the
entire league this season. James is considered by most people in NBA circles to be the best basketball players on the planet,
but George appears to be gaining on him as one of the few players long and athletic enough to play solid defense on one of
the best players to every suit up.
Other big games that will certainly be circled on the Indiana Pacers' calendar this
season are matchups with the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls look to be the biggest threat to the Pacers chances at another Central
Division crown. Chicago lost star point guard Derrick Rose to injury yet again this season, but they've still got some tough
players and one of the best coaches in the league. No game against the Bulls is ever an easy one thanks to their hard-nosed
mindset and defensive schemes. The Pacers know not to take any matchup with this team lightly, and this divisional rivalry
will result in many people hitting the stands at the arena to be a part of the action. It should be a wonderful season to
check out the Pacers in person as they shoot for the stars and the NBA Championship in 2013-14.
Indiana Pacers are a professional basketball team that is a part of the National Basketball Association. As a member of the
Eastern Conference's Central Division, the Pacers are often matched up with division rivals like the Cleveland Cavaliers,
Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks. The Pacers have one of the best teams in the entire NBA and have their
eyes on the NBA Championship this season. The Pacers will soar as high as forward Paul George can take them this season. George
appears to have nearly unlimited potential on both ends of the floor, making him one of the most enticing young talents in
the league. The Pacers are a hard-nosed team that refuses to back down from any opponent, and that's an attitude that could
carry them to the top in 2013-14.
