IC Cold Links: Pacers win, up next Hawks, Bulls and Lakers

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Pacers accept the sloppy win against Stephen Jackson and the Charlotte Bobcats.  Jackson started off hot (understatement of the day!) in front of his former crowd but eventually cooled off.  The Pacers really need to tighten up the offensive glass, giving up opportunities in hand fulls the last couple games.

The league decided to give Roy Hibbert a nice birthday present (Happy Birthday, Roy!) this season with Al Horford, Pau Gasol, and Joakim Noah.  The Pacers couldn't sweep the past three sub-500 teams they have faced consecutively, but seem to be up to big challenges this year.  So, here they are...another big challenge facing them head on.  Can they put three solid games together and come out 14-10?  Can they beat the defending champions again?  This will be a tough test, but this season they have showed the ability to overcome what they haven't been able to do in the past. 

So, they have shown the ability to beat good teams, what will be their record after these three games?  Fill me in and let me know what it will take to sweep this stretch...
