    Default East vs. West records

    We have the best record against the West in the entire Eastern Conference. So, what does this mean?

    Unfortunately, it's just another fact that the media and the rest of the NBA will ignore.

    A combination of 2 things:

    1) We don't get scheduled for marquee matchups in a shortened season. We played every team from the West only once but Minnesota, New Orleans, and Golden State. We went a combined 6-0 vs. those teams.

    2) In our first season as a good team, we have both a condensed schedule (less time for learning the opposition) and a completely new offense. So it's a little bit of a shock factor to go along with us being a very good team.

    I'm sure the players are more aware than the average fan about opposing teams and their tendencies, but the typical "lol the Pacers aren't a real team" response is quite rampant. And even halfway through the year we were still getting the "They're a good ballclub and you can't overlook them" speech after losses.

    It means that if we make it out of the East, we'll be set!

    I'm just glad that we're winning against the west. in previous seasons we got owned by the west, especially on the road.
    It just showed we're a much better team, the fact we're capable of winning games on the road and beating the west teams.
    It's not like we won against the scrub teams. We beat OKC, Lakers, Clippers, Dallas...

    Well the fact remains that we still have to outplay them on the court, and teams can always make in-game changes.

    Oh, and we were 3-1 against the current top 4 seeds. Dang you Spurs!

    Well, to bring back a little buzz, the Pacers were hot out of the gate, so I'm not subscribing fully to "overlooked.". Bottom line is that we thumped the West and did fine against the best teams.

    I do buy into the depth of the roster as a regular season edge that will matter less in the playoffs. You always have a day off in the latter in the rotation shortens.

    But it's not a huge concern. Playoff style ball will be natural for the Pacers. As long as West or Hibbert touch the ball on offense, we'll be a tough out.
