This feels similar to that first-round series against the Bulls in 2011
The Pacers were able to fight and claw their way to the playoffs by making it through the play-in tournament. The team gained valuable experience in big games and fought hard against the Celtics but fell short in a 5-game series. Managing to win one game as the East’s top team was no small task and the Pacers were competitive in every game. Free agents are interested in joining your young team that shows it might not be that far away from making a deep playoff run.
