Indianapolis Pacers

leave a comment »

So now, that football season is over what else is there to watch? Well the Indianapolis Pacers season is a little bit more than halfway into its 34th year.

Indianapolis Pacers History: The first men’s basketball team for Indy was the Indianapolis Jets in 1948; they had a record of 18-42, that was their only season. The next Indy basketball team was the Indianapolis Olympians the following year. They won the NBA’a Western Division with a 39-25 record. They only played for four years.

Then after a 27 year gap with no team, in 1976 the Pacers where created. The Pacers had a hard time when they first started, only winning one season out of their first 13 seasons. After about a decade and a half of trying and not succeeding, the team finally began to play .500 games in the 1990s. By the 1995s, the Pacers had become one of the Eastern Conferences top clubs.

So from 1994-200 the Pacers had gotten to the conference finals 5 times, won two central division titles, and then advanced to the NBA finals in 2000.

This team as seen many hard times, but they are a hard working team. The Indy Pacers are really a team worth watching.

Tomorrow they will be playing at home against the Utah Jazz. They have only played this team once before (this season) and lost. Let us see if they can get back at them for the previous loss.
