Pacers Podcast: Off day treats Pacers well in Eastern Conference standings

The latest Locked on Pacers episode tries to make sense of the odd circumstances in the Eastern Conference standings while looking ahead to the Pacers matchup with the Celtics.

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The East is a place where you can win and fall in the standings, then lose and jump back up. Oh, and if you don't play, moving up some more is quite likely. That has been the Pacers' experience just this week!

So much inconsistency among so many teams but why? Seems like all of that fun player movement in the summer makes for a mess in the first half of the season.

Also, the Pacers play the Celtics at home for the second time this season but under far different circumstances. For one, Paul George will be available and I don't think the Pacers will need to game plan for stopping James Young this time.

Can the Pacers extend their current home winning streak and snap the Celtics’ three-game winning streak in the process?
