New Year Offers Pacers A Fresh Start

A nice aspect of the NBA season is that you begin the year fresh with optimism and if that doesn't go so well, you can always take advantage of the calendar new year to refresh your outlook and hope for good things in the coming year.

Obviously, as we peel off the wrapper for 2010, Pacers fans are taking advantage of the second option. With the Minnesota Timberwolves in town tomorrow, there still hope for the injury-ravaged Pacers to put an end to the eight-game losing streak that closed 2009 and begin 2010 with a W.

You know, the Pacers are only 3.5 games out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Sorry, had to mention it while mustering up a positive vibe for January.

After the jump, a few New Year's Day links of interest.
