IC Cold Links: Pacers Take Adavantage Of Favorable Early Season Schedule

After winning games on back-to-back nights this past weekend, practice time is plentiful for the Indiana Pacers to keep working through their early season issues while staying fresh and ready for game time.

The Pacers play the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday after three full days off, which will be the first of four games in ten days with no back-to-backs and another three off-day stretch in the middle. Those three off days come between home games so make that three, travel-free off days.

The players may not enjoy all of the practice time, but Jim O'Brien certainly does as he continues to pound his young team into shape as they prepare for each game. The opponents toughen up after the road game in Philly, with the Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets visiting the Fieldhouse, but the Pacers should be primed and ready to give each their best.

After the jump, a few links of interest with stories on Paul George and T.J. Ford, and the Pacers moving up in a coupld of power rankings.
