IC Cold Links: Pacers Come Into March Like A Lamb, Go Out Like  Lion

After the first week in March, the Indiana Pacers were left for dead on the side of the road. Their West Coast road trip produced few highlights and four straight losses which were never in doubt.

But the Pacers found some solace, not to mention their game, when they returned home. Playing their best basketball of the season, the Pacers finished March by winning all seven of their home games and closing out the the month at 8-4 (including 6-1 in their last seven games) after that miserable first week on the road.

The 8-8 record for March was the team's first .500 month since last March. Jim O'Brien is 23-22 with the Pacers in March which makes him the Brandon Rush of NBA coaches.

They're also done dropping down the upside-down standings after slipping behind the Clippers last night into 10th place. Well, at least they should be done dropping. The Pacers could slip again into a tie for 11th if they win out  and New Orleans and/or Chicago losses all of their games. In this strange season, you can't rule it out until it actually happens.

After the jump, more links of interest from the win last night.
