Just a few weeks ago the Indiana Pacers were considered one of the strong favorites to win the Eastern Conference. After losing leading scorer Paul George to a devastating injury and their third leading scorer Lance Stephenson to free agency, the Pacers begin their 2014-15 campaign full of question marks. Here are five games that should help to answer those questions.

The team once built to defeat Miami travels to play the Miami Heat in a nationally televised matchup. The Heat have retooled by adding Luol Deng and Josh McRoberts to the club. The Heat aren’t the same without LeBron James, but they are still formidable. Will the Pacers be able to give them a run for their money?

The Pacers travel to face LeBron James and the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers in a fun Central Division matchup. It will be interesting to see how Indiana’s David West and Roy Hibbert perform against what will be a mostly small-ball Cavaliers lineup.

The Pacers travel to Phillips Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers haven’t fared to well at Phillips Arena, and this game could tell us quite a bit about where the Pacers are headed as they enter the second half of the season.

The Pacers host the Chicago Bulls at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on a Friday night that should be interesting to see. Where will the Pacers be in March? Will they be contenders or tankers? This test against Chicago will tell us all we need to know about the 2014-15 Indiana Pacers.

The second to last game of the season finds the Pacers hosting the Washington Wizards. The Pacers handily defeated the Wizards in last season’s second round of the playoffs but neither team is the same. The Wizards are, at least on paper, vastly improved while the Pacers are in big trouble. This should be an interesting Tuesday night contest.

Curry Shows Off With Half-Court Shot

It seems like Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry does something otherworldly on a daily basis nowadays. Last night against the Indiana Pacers, Curry casually threw up a half-court shot as time expired in the first-half, and it went in because of course it did.
