Remember when the Pacers used to play actual games?

Well, after a week off that felt more like a month, we have made it to game day and it appears the Pacers will indeed play the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.

While the rest has been good for the physical state of the Pacers, we’ll see if it was good for the level of play by the team who was struggling to find a consistent winning rhythm of late.

The rest was also good for the Pacers with regard to their standing in the Eastern Conference. By not playing, they have solidified their fourth place spot in the East as the Boston Celtics have lot their last two games and 5 of their last seven to slip to sixth place. Plus, the Raptors who were rolling up from behind lost to Philly on Tuesday to leave the Pacer alone in fourth place, 2.5 games behind Milwaukee who have also been playing .500 ball of late.

The remaining schedule before the Pacers’ next break around the All-Star game will be challenging with 4 of the 6 games on the road, including match ups against Boston, Philly, and the Knicks along with a home date against the Nuggets which is always a challenging matchup.

With time to reassess and adjust, the Pacers should be in as good a shape as possible to finish strong before the break.
