As a resident of England and a keen Pacers enthusiast, I am delighted that the team has finally reached our shores, the fact they have chosen two different teams shows they are committed to making basketball the fastest growing sport in this Country.
Since the Pacers will be the visiting team, that means they will maintain their usual 41-game home schedule at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
What do you guys think of this news?
