Pacers Links: Pacers collect 30th W with win over Kings

The Pacers continue their torrid pace atop the Eastern Conference with no signs of slowing down.

Andy Lyons

The Pacers took full advantage of some rare time off of late to rejuvenate their game and blast the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night. While the Pacers struggled a bit last week working through a busy schedule they were still able to continue collecting W's and with the win last night became the second team in the NBA to win their 30th game (San Antonio beat them by a few days).

With their current winning percentage (.811) the Blue and Gold are on pace to win at least 66 games which would surpass the franchise-record 61 wins by the eventually ill-fated, 2003-04 team. Of course, the fuel for this team has nothing to do with franchise records or even a certain number of wins. It is all about having one more win than the Miami Heat at the end of the year to make sure they have home court advantage.

So far more important than hitting the 30-win milestone in mid-January is the fact the Pacers remain three full games ahead of the Heat in the race for the top spot.
