Pacers can’t beat a good team:

Why Indiana is forced into bad shots against well coached teams.

Why the bench is really inconsistent.

Why the bench was the reason the Pacers lost to the Wolves and Trailblazers.

Why Victor Oladipo hasn’t taken over a game.

Bojan Bogdanovic’s great start to the season:

How he became Indiana’s second best player on offense.

Why he still struggles on defense.

Why he could be in Indiana for the foreseeable future.

Indiana travels to Chicago:

Why the Pacers should win by 30.

Crazy fact: Zach LaVine is averaging 28.8 points per game!!!!

Why Indiana should rest their starts if they get a big lead.

Boston comes to Indianapolis:

Why this is the best matchup of the week.

Why it’s unfortunate that it’s a back to back.

Why Kyrie Irving versus Oladipo is Adam’s favorite matchup.

Quick Note: I’m going to post Pacers column every Monday and occasionally Friday. It’ll break down some of the biggest Pacer news of the week, plays I’ve liked and didn’t like and preview the upcoming matchups. I also want to incorporate a mailbag piece to each column but I’ll need questions for that. I’ll remind people in my posts over the next couple weeks, but if you have at least a semi-related Pacer mailbag question you want answered click this Google link to submit them or clicking here
