The Indiana Pacers have done a great job in April of dictating their own post-season fate but with one more win can officially seal up the third seed in the East without relying on Atlanta losing.

Plenty of good stuff in the links today as the Pacers continue gathering momentum and attention heading into the playoffs. Of course, George Hill was tabbed the starting point guard for the remainder of the season although his first pitch for the Indy Indians was rained out.

David West has also ramped up his game with the playoffs in sight and also stiffened the spine of the roster to make sure no one backs down from a challenge, whether that be to their manhood or on the defensive end. The physical and mental toughness West and Hill have added this year can't be overlooked as they've helped a team with great chemistry bolster their confidence to a Vogel-esque level of believing anything is possible at this point.
