Indiana Pacers Prove To Be Deeply Talented

Your Indiana Pacers are not only proving that they are a team to be beat and reckoned with, but that you never really know where they are going to beat you.  Solid team basketball along with good raw talent assures you that it could be any one or four to five that could provide the offensive push it takes to beat you.

George Hill is obviously the most recent name you don’t see in the game-high point production for Indiana.  Except that tonight he led all Pacers with 37 points although it would be ill-advised not to mention David West added 30 points as well.

Lance Stephenson did not play and his energy was highly missed.  It is still, however, very nice to see that teammates will step up to the plate and take care of business while we are less than one hundred.

I think that tonight’s win against Portland here at home proves that Indiana is truly a team that intends to seek and acquire a title this year.  More importantly for myself it displays the Pacers depth.  Not only on their bench but within their starting five.  Their are scorer’s who are awaiting their turn.  Watch out NBA.
