Why the Indiana Pacers made the playoffs

At the beginning of the season, the Indiana Pacers said they would be discontent with anything less than a No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. For those who have been casually following along, it would appear they followed the blueprint perfectly, with no hiccups along the way. That assertion would be wrong.

Then he might follow that up by staring down a new born baby, and throwing a chest pass into the 15th row. At...
