It appears there is trouble in paradise in Golden State. You would think coming off of a NBA championship last year and a to-date successful playoff run this year, things would be good. But recent comments from Jordan Poole and Jonathan Kuminga suggest the Pacers could find opportunity within.

In a recent set of interviews and media availablility, Poole and Kuminga decided to air the dirty laundry about what might be happening behind the scenes in Golden State. Poole stated that:

"“Got the opportunity to play more out there and catch my rhythm […] Only so much you can do when you play 15 minutes.”"

Additionally Kuminga talked about lack of playing time:

"“It’s tough going through this season and being in (the game) most of the time and then things just flip out of nowhere without you knowing what’s going on […] It’s still tough to lock in every single time. It’s still tough to smile every single time.”"

So it sounds like there could be division in the locker room, especially along veteran/young player lines. And this could make sense as it has been speculated that there may be division in the locker room since the preseason incident where Draymond Green aggressively punched Jordan Poole in the face.

So how could the Pacers capitalize?
