The Indiana Pacers have been a fixture on the Indiana sports scene since 1967. One of the National Basketball Association's premier franchises, the Pacers have reached NBA Playoffs and Eastern Conference Finals many times and were in the NBA Finals in 2000. Home games are played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, regarded by many as the finest basketball arena in the world.
The Pacers are coming off two straight 48-win seasons, and take a new-look lineup into the season with summer acquisitions Malcolm Brogdon, Jeremy Lamb, T.J. Warren, T.J. McConnell, Justin Holiday and draft pick Goga Bitadze. They join returnees two-time All-Star Victor Oladipo (expected back at some point this season from a knee injury), Myles Turner, Domantas Sabonis, Doug McDermott, T.J. Leaf, Edmond Sumner, Aaron Holiday and Alize Johnson.
