As the weather turns cooler, our thoughts turn to sports, and basketball. It's time to think about another National Basketball Association, NBA season. The 2013/2014 preseason will begin October 5th, and run most of the month of October, with the regular season beginning at the very end of October. Let's take a look at one team, the Indiana Pacers.
The Indiana Pacers play in the Central division of the Eastern conference. They ended last season with a 49-32 record, and a run in the playoffs against eventual winners, the Miami Heat. The games against the Heat exposed the biggest weakness in the Indiana Pacers, and they spent time this off season working to take care of that weakness.
The Indiana Pacers will get back a key player this season in Danny Granger, and then they were able to sign point guard C.J. Watson and forward Chris Copeland to help file some holes, and give the team some much needed bench scoring. The consistency of Lance Stephenson's play was a factor last season, and could remain a factor this year, but by adding a few veteran players, the Indiana Pacers are hoping to give him some time to grow and mature.
The Indiana Pacers have some key defensive players in Roy Hibbertt and David West, that most analyst feel can cover for any lack they might have gotten in picking up Copeland, who is more of a scorer. The good thing about the additions the Indiana Pacers made this off season is that they made themselves a much deeper team, which was one of their biggest issues last season. This issue resolved should allow fans to see much more of what the Indiana Pacers are able to do.
The Indiana Pacers preseason will start on October 5th with a home game against Chicago, then another home game on the 10th against Houston. The preseason will end for the Indiana Pacers on October 25th in Dallas. They will then come back to Indiana to open the regular season at home against Orlando on the 29th. The Indiana Pacers home venue is a wonderful basketball arena and fans enjoy the experience, a great event if you get the chance to visit.
