Detroit win gives Pacers Central Division titlePosted by Inside Hoops
Welcome back to the top of the Central Division, Indiana Pacers.
It’s been too long since you’ve been there.
After eight years of watching Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago take turns being at the top, the Pacers can call themselves the best in the division again.
The Pacers didn’t win the division be beating an opponent, they got an assist from an all-too-familiar opponent.
The Detroit Pistons beat the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night, giving the Pacers their first division title since the 2003-04 season.
The victory ended an 18-game losing streak to the Bulls by the Pistons.
The streak couldn’t have ended at a better time for the Pacers.
