34-38, 2nd in East Central

As one of the original members of the ABA, Indiana was one of the fledgling league's most successful franchises. The Pacers made the ABA playoffs every season during its existence, appearing in half the ABA Finals, and winning three titles. When the ABA merged with the NBA ahead of the 1976-77 season, Hoosier State basketball enthusiasts expected the Pacers' success to follow them. It simply did not. During their first 13 NBA seasons, Indiana made only three playoff appearances, winning only a single game. With their third appearance at the end of the 1989-90 season, Indiana began one of the more successful runs in the NBA. The Pacers would continue to get bumped from the playoff bracket in the first round for the following three seasons.

However, in 1993-94, Indiana would make their first appearance in a conference final in almost 20 years. Indiana would make it back to the Eastern Conference Finals the following season, but again fall one game short of the NBA Finals. After missing the playoffs the next season, Indiana would make it to the conference finals three consecutive years. They lost the first shots at the finals but finally made it to an NBA Final during the 1999-2000 season. Indiana has consistently been a playoff-caliber team but has appeared in only two more Eastern Conference Finals, losing both of those. The Pacers have never won an NBA Title, a sore spot in a state that adores their basketball. The Pacers have been a competitive team each of the last five seasons, both statistically and in the standings. They are on another consecutive playoff appearance streak during this period. However, Indiana is adding another series of bitter playoff disappointments.

The Pacers have excellent odds for stretching that playoff streak to six seasons. They made minimal roster adjustments ahead of the 2020-21 season, but have improved their scoring tremendously. Indiana has pushed the ball up the court at a faster pace than in previous seasons, turning a bottom-10 scoring team into a top-10 threat to produce points. The Pacers have brought back their original 2016 first-round draft pick Caris LeVert. LeVert recently had surgery to remove a mass from his left kidney. The prognosis is for a full recovery. He will be counted on to further improve the Pacers scoring potential. Indiana doesn't boast a roster full of headline stars, other than Domantas Sabonis, but they have depth at all positions. The Pacers will have a difficult time pushing the Milwaukee Bucks for the Central Division top spot, but they have the talent to be a problem in the playoffs. It will prove very important if Indiana can earn the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. That would allow the Pacers to host a first-round series.
