    Default Maturity

    Looking through the stats of our last several games at such things as FT disparity and there doesn't seem to be a win/loss pattern... When I broke it down in terms of wins and losses since March 1 against the top 10 teams, the middle teams (which included those still in PO contention), and the bottom dwellers:

    Since 3/1, Pacers are:
    2-1 against the Top Teams
    3-1 against the Middle Teams
    1-4 against the worst Teams.
    3 of those losses against the worst teams came on the road.

    This team will display signs of maturity when they take care of the games they're supposed to as well as win on the road.

    At least we're not the Wizards, which just got their 2nd road win of the season last night.

    But what does this bode for our next game? Detroit at home: TBD.

    This is what happens when your team is very young and it doesn't help that the coach is a rookie too.

    Consistency comes with time. I for one prefer at least knowing we can beat any given team on any given night than winning all of the bunnies, but having no hope at an amazing game against a top team. One has far more upside than the others.

    Yeah well I guess at least that plays in our hands for the playoffs...

    I would love if the Pacers could some how pull a first round upset.

    I will say that I think some of those wins against the top teams came from them underestimating how good the Pacers could be, which will not happen in the playoffs.

    I'm calling sellouts at every Pacers game next season if that is the case!

    This city would be painted blue & gold again if we upset Chicago or Boston.

    I remember when the Warriors upset the Mavericks a couple of years ago.

    That was quite something.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!
