IC Cold Links: Pacers Roll On Road Remain In Third Place In East

Too late! Mandatory Credit: Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

The Indiana Pacers stacked another strong effort on their current string of solid games when they beat the Washington Wizards last night.

Since the New York Knicks smoked the Pacers in back-to-back games in mid-March, the Pacers are 8-3 with only one real clunker against the Nets. I'm not going to complain about ugly wins and in the last four games the Pacers have closed strong when it was winning time in the fourth quarter. That wasn't enough to overcome the Spurs but it has been enough to move them into third place in the Eastern Conference.

The Pacers standing can change quickly with just 12 games to go especially with Oklahoma City and Boston on the schedule, but they are in great shape to take their best shot at the Thunder. Darren Collison mentioned after the win last night how he and his teammates are really looking forward to the test from OKC. That's the perfect attitude to take and it helps not having the pressure of a bad loss hanging over their heads. Should be a fun weekend.
