I was hoping that the Pacers could get their first 3-game winning streak of the season against the Joakim Noah-less Chicago Bulls, especially since the Bulls had been struggling on the road.
But nope. The Bulls are still a lot better. Pacers couldn't hit anything. Lose. 99-86.
Pacers are now 16-21 as they head on the road to face a red hot LA Clippers team.
Amazingly, even though the Pacers are on track to finish only slightly better than they did last season (32-50), they might actually make the playoffs. But is that a good thing here? The first three seeds are likely going to be either Miami, Boston, Chicago or Orlando -- teams I doubt the Pacers can take more than one game from in a seven game series -- if they're lucky.
Just throwing it out there.
