Default Will the Pacers make the playoffs this year?

Are they good enough, or will they underperform like last year?

They'll be better than last year, I think.

They're gonna have terrible defense, though.

Take the OVER in as many Pacers games as possible at the beginning of the year.

They got one of those 3 second offenses, so go make some money gambling on them.

I think they should be better than last year loot but i cannot see them make the playoffs this year.

With the Eastern Conference improving its roster their is a slight chance the Pacers will bounce back after a very disappointing year last season

They could benefit from it by being one of the lottery team which might select Michael Beasley in next years NBA Draft.

I think the Pacers will be the worst team in the Eastern Conference...right below Philadelphia.

The hell are you talking about? Their defense is good, it's their offense that hurts them.
Despite having 44 matadors on the floor at the same time, JO himself keeps their defense solid.

Defense is good. As long as they get productivity on offense, they're making the playoffs. Lot of things need to fall in place but it's looking good as of now.

Can they make the playoffs? Yes, I think they can, but, I don't think they will. Probably a 6th seed at best, though I'd imagine they'll be in the race right until the end of the season.

well, jim o'brien already said in an interview that they will jack up many three pointers. that's not the best way to use jermaine if he's staying, and i'm not sold at all on their shooters.

so IMO they'll either surprise or fail miserably with no middle ground. with second possibility more probable.

O'Brien may be in love with the trey but I think it may be a way to try and overcome a team's lack of offensive talent, by telling players they can take whatever shots they want to so long as they work hard on D. That's how he got the most out of his Celtic teams.

I doubt Indyu makes it, by the way; too much drama, all the uncertainty around O'Neal's future, and other than O'Neal and Granger not much talent.

Hell no. Who are they going to make it over?


Chicago
Boston
Detroit
Miami
Cleveland
New Jersey
Toronto
Washington
Orlando


That's 9 teams alone whom are all in the dicsussion and are all inarguably better teams..Then you have Milwaukee and New York whom could be in the dicussion as well...


That Pacers team is ridiclously flawed, and you know J.O will miss his 15-20 games as is...And now that Jim O'Brien is there with his inefficient bombs away offense(Carlisle is a better coach, period)....I certainly don't see them as a playoff contender barring a catostrophic injury to the teams aforementioned...

Anyone who believe Indiana can make the playoffs must think it is just an 8 team Eastern conference.
