NBA Eastern Conference news: Keeping an eye on the competition

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Pacers start the season fighting for a playoff spot so we have to see what is happening with other teams in the East.

In past seasons, the Indiana Pacers were simply trying to play better. The focus heading into the season was on the team in blue and gold. Could they begin to play well on a consistent level? If so, maybe they could make the playoffs.

Well, that all changed last season when the Pacers earned a third seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and then played like a third seed once post-season play began.

So this season, making the playoffs is not so much a goal but an expectation and all of the twists and turns and injuries throughout the regular season can help or hinder the Pacers chances for a strong finish and high seed in the Eastern Conference. So while in past season, we simply focused on the Pacers, this year we'll also keep an eye on the competition.
