The Indiana Pacers are rebuilding. That’s noteworthy. Bottoming out is not usually part of this organization’s MO. It may not even be now as the NBA offseason approaches.

If this small market club could find a way to accelerate the process, they might take it. They’ve made hay in this league for a long time by staying consistent. The Pacers are never title favorites, occasionally dark horse contenders, and almost always competitive.
