The Pacers are now the only team to have yet to lose. They seem to have carried over their confidence from the post season where they proved they were good enough to beat Miami.

How long do you think this streak will go on?

You can't prove you're good enough to beat Miami until you actually beat them

Weren't they like winless in preseason?

OP makes some weird assumptions overall.

They lost their first 5 when they played weird rotations with guys like Copeland getting long minutes. They won their last 3 when they used their regular rotations.

I don't like Indy's chances to win tonight, especially if Roy gets in foul trouble again. They've got a lot of talented bigs to wreck havoc in the paint.

Hey, Cope is a beast.

They were one stop away from beating Miami. They beat them 3 times in 7 games and forced a game into overtime. That proves they are good enough to beat them.

You don't go 7 games with a team and force an OT without being good enough to beat them.

Did you watch the series? They won 3 games and forced an over time.

You can't seriously think they aren't good enough to beat Miami.

That said, just because somebody is GOOD enough to beat somebody, doesn't mean they will.

Why are Miami fans taking issue with this? This isn't a knock on Miami. Miami is the champs! Period! The Pacers are a team that was good enough to beat them, but the Heat won a tight series. How is this even debatable.

The Pacers HAVE beaten Miami.

In fact, the Paces beat Miami FIVE FAWKING TIMES last season... MORE THAN ANY TEAM IN THE LEAGUE!!!!

They finished 5-5 in the regular and post season against each other.

Pretty much any top seed is good enough to beat any other top seed. Because the Spurs swept the Grizzlies does it mean that they weren't "good enough" to beat the Spurs? Of course not. So where you are going with wins and losses and regular season records, I have no clue.

4-0. Probably ends tomorrow though, Paul George carried the team, playing 40 minutes, almost all of the 2nd half, and going for 31 and 10.

I'm kinda thinking it ends tomorrow against the Bulls. Would love to be proven wrong of course.

If I had to bet, I'd bet on Chicago. The Bulls haven't played their best basketball yet, but these are two teams who have similar strengths and weaknesses, and it is likely going to be a low scoring affair. The Bulls also have the ideal defense to slow down Paul George, while Noah should give Hibbert fits.

That being said, there's no telling how far it could go. The Pacers are playing great basketball right now and have started as arguably the hottest team in the NBA. It could end with the next game or they could start the season on a 10-game winning streak. But it's not how you start the season, it's how you finish it, and Indiana has a lot to prove in that regard.

Today vs Bulls. Back to back is always tough against good defensive teams.

No votes for Brooklyn? I think Indy will lose tonight because it's the Chicago Bulls, a team that matches up well with size vs teams that don't go shoot 18/26 from three's on any given night. Good matchup of size, but Brooklyn is looking weaker than their potential, but their team can be scary.
