I know the Pacers are at this weird crossroad between winning and trying to get a better draft pick, but this team was fun to watch all season. I wish they would have won the last home game against Detroit to have a winning record at home, but we can’t always get what we want… I tuned in more this season each game because the team played with heart, grit, and for each other. I hadn’t seen that as much in prior seasons. Credit to Rick Carlisle for creating that culture. Let’s continue to grow that culture into the 2023-24 season.
