The Indiana Pacers finally picked up a win last night against the Milwaukee Bucks after losing six straight. Five of those losses would be in the confines of Bankers Life Fieldhouse, alarming for both the team and its fans.
Even though the Pacers would lose to each of the six teams by 10 points or less, the lack of poise down the stretch brought attention to some of the team’s flaws.
The losing streak exposed the Pacers’ shortcomings and allowed a comprehensive look as to how much more growth the team needs to undergo.
What is encouraging is that the flaws are correctable, especially as the Pacers are continuing to find their identity with the slew of changes.
