The Pacers have undergone quite a few changes during the 2013-14 season, and although they seemed to improve on paper, the team has struggled in the last 25 games of the regular season. They signed Andrew Bynum and acquired Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, but now they might not have as much home court advantage in the playoffs as they once thought. Indiana had to go on the road for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals in 2013, and the Miami Heat blew out the Pacers. Although this Indiana squad has not been playing as well in the last couple of months of the season, they still have time to turn it around and you can see it all in person with Indiana Pacers playoff tickets.
Prices for Pacers playoff tickets are among the lowest NBA playoff tickets in the league, and for that reason, you should purchase your tickets as soon as possible to see arguably the league’s best home team. There are 3,337 tickets available on the secondary market for the first round at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and the average price of those tickets is $134.13. Although this price is 76.14 percent more than the regular-season price of $76.15, this playoff premium is still lower than most of the other teams in the NBA postseason.
By getting these playoff tickets, you will be able to see the best defense in the league as well. Winning basketball teams need to have strong defenses, and the Pacers will always give themselves a chance with how good they are on that side of the court. They have allowed the fewest points per possession in the league this season and are the NBA’s best defense around the hoop. Roy Hibbert is by far one of the league’s strongest defenders, and he will continue to protect the basket.
Starting alongside Hibbert in the frontcourt are David West and Paul George. West has had yet another very effective season in Indiana, and George has had the best year of his career. Unfortunately, George’s shooting percentages have dropped in the second half of the season, but he still has a chance to duplicate his stellar performance from the 2013 playoffs.
The Pacers’ x-factor in the playoffs could be C.J. Watson. When Watson has sat out, the Pacers have had difficulty winning. However, when he has played at least 20 minutes, the team has an almost perfect record this season. Watson is now back and healthy, so it could be a long run in the 2014 playoffs for Indiana.
