    Default NBA Power Rankings 01/17/12 Pacers in 8th place

    8th is about right.


    Last Week: 11
    Indiana Pacers (9-3)
    The Pacers have been blessed with good health, as their starting five ranks among the top units in both minutes played and plus/minus. They are using their length (the four starters alongside point guard Darren Collison range from 6-8 to 7-2) to allow fewer than 90 points per game. They'll improve even more defensively as backup center Jeff Foster gets healthier. Foster has good chemistry with fellow frontcourt reserve Tyler Hansbrough -- like Omer Asik and Taj Gibson in Chicago, they wear down teams. The offense, especially Indiana's 41.3 shooting percentage, should improve once the team's leaders in shots per minute, Danny Granger (33.5 percent) and Hansbrough (38.8), learn to fire it up less frequently or more accurately.

    I agree, 8th in the NBA seems about right to me.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.
