Confidence Rises for Indiana Pacers

+Read full article

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

After a home win against the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday night, Indiana Pacers (10-9) are over .500 for the first time since November 3rd. The Pacers stumbled early in the season, getting blown out by good teams, and fighting tooth-and-nail with similar teams who seemed to be struggling. After putting in new pieces and bench players, while still trying to lift themselves up after the loss Danny Granger, the Indiana Pacers may have finally begun to find the proper path to progress this season.

Before returning home on Wednesday night, the Pacers had finished up a four-game road trip, with a 3-1 record. In all, Indiana has won six of their last eight games. The Pacers lead the league in rebounds, and have the lowest amount of points per game scored against them in the league so far this season.

The progression of this young team is still to be taken on a step-by-step basis. The Pacers have a long season ahead of them, and still have 63 games yet to play. As it stands right now, for all of their success on the defensive side of the ball, the Pacers are still near the bottom of the league in points scored per game. If this team is looking to stay strong on a regular basis, then they must find offense to coincide with their defensive prowess.

The jury is still out on this year’s Indiana Pacers. The team has seemed to change from night-to night. Still, if they can stay strong on this current path, then we might just see this squad step-up and surprise this league once again.
