    Default What did you predict for the Pacers season?

    Since our prediction threads are gone what did you predict?

    I predicted 47 wins.

    My thinking was very basic, the Pacers Scored 105 points last year and gave up 106. So if they scored the same and their defense just held everyone to one less bucket it would equal a winning record since a plus point differential nearly always results in a team over .500.

    I also said I would be surprised if the Pacers won less than 41 games or more than 50.

    I also remember only one or two guys predicted more wins than I did.

    I'd say no less than 40 no more than 50

    46-47 range sounds pretty accurate

    I said 46. Said 50 would be a pleasant surprise and was told I was drinking the Kool aid.

    I think I said 40-42 and getting the 8th seed. I'm not sure.

    I said 33. But that was when Murphy was healthy. It'll be slightly more since he's been hurt. 36 or so.

    I predicted between 47 and 54 Wins ...

    I also remember saying the higher win count in that given range I gave, would greatly depend on maintaining our health, and Dunleavy coming back before January ...

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    35 and no playoffs was my original submission.

    I'll probably stick with it, but I'm now hopeful I'm going to be wrong on both counts.

    If you would have asked me this question 10 days ago I would have said 22 wins. Asking me right now, I'm going to say 49 wins.

    But no, I predicted 37 and no playoffs. But I also said in other before season threads, that I have no real feel for this team and I still have no real feel

    I said 52 wins and ECF.

    Please understand, I really have no clue and I can't even watch the games due to work and life situations, I just needed to feel optimistic about something at the time.

    I've wanted to be wrong about my preseason read of the Pacers for years. It's not as darksider as it is being realistic. Right now, I'm very hopeful.

    That said, we're 7 games into an 82 game season. We're 4-3. A bit early to be booking flights back to Indy for the playoffs.

    Favorite moment of the year thus far: Last night at one of the big sports bars in LA, I got to silence an annoying girl in a Brady jersey letting her know that we 2-0'd Boston this weekend.
