Tom from Indy Cornrows previews the Pacers:
4. What are the goals for this team?
The Pacers just missed the playoffs last year thanks to a late surge that involved several key players that remain on the roster. Considering the talent around those key players has improved and includes players that fit the way Jim O'Brien prefers to play, earning a playoff spot has to be goal number one. Reality mucks up the initial logic though since several other Eastern Conference teams have made improvements that should make playoff berth much tougher to earn.
