Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
56 and champs.
Bonus prediction: The Eastern Semis will be every bit as grueling as the Eastern Finals. I think Miami gets the top seed, Chicago gets the two seed, and we are the three seed. Our path to the Finals will be Washington, Chicago, Miami. We 41 Washington, 43 Bulls in a war of a series, and 43 Miami.

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
54 wins. They will once again lose to Miami in the ECF.
Edit: another poster made a good point. If we face the Bulls or Heat in the 2nd round we will lose to them. I have yet to see proof we have gotten past either of them.

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
55 Wins
They will at least make the ECF, not ready to say they will make the finals yet.

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
49 wins, second round exit, probably to the Bulls...

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
61 wins...lose in NBA Finals.

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
Somewhere in the 55 to 62 W range for the good guys, and this time next year THE banner is hoisted.

Not that it cannot be done but it would be wise to have the 1st or 2nd seed. The vast majority of champions come from the 1st or 2nd seed.
How many wins will it take to get that position???
Probably 60 wins.
Pacers 5824
Lose in finals.

Paul George in the top 5 race for MVP

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
55 wins
Start off slow but they get into full stride midseason.
Paul George proves to be worth the contract. Hibbert struggles with a consistent offense. Hill has a solid year. We shoot the three better, particularly from the corners. West and Scola provide a stable post offense.
Lance does everything well but shoot. Granger is average or below in everything but shooting (he will have a crazy good 6 weeks that overcompensates for a slow start and then comes down to earth)
We will have an ongoing debate that will cause some hard casualties in PD kingdom.
OJ will be the new bench player that everyone will want to see more of. To the point that will be all that some talk about.
And if any player is traded, it will be Hill.
The post season will be grueling. And we will fail to make it to the ECF running into the Bulls where the verticality rule will not be an asset.

We beat Miami in the ECFs and then the Spurs in the Championship.
Paul George and Either Roy or David will be All Stars.
George makes second team all NBA.

Re: Prediction time: how many games will Pacers win, how far will they go
Around 55 wins is my prediction too.
Don't want to "derail" the thread, but can you see Paul George reaching the 20's as far as ppg is concerned this season?

If he keeps shooting around 50%, then definitely.
