ESPN.com did their Eastern Conference Standings predictions and put the Pacers at No. Ten and finishing with a record of 31-51. In my opinion, Indy will finish somewhere around the eighth or seventh seed. Here’s some more details of them:
The Pacers essentially stood pat and might miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season. But there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel — Indy is armed with expiring contracts and on track to have cap space next summer. Meanwhile, the Pacers hope to build on last season’s 10-4 finish and avoid the East cellar.
