Monta Ellis and Paul George should be an exciting tandem to watch. But outside of them, there isn’t much to get excited for about this Pacers lineup. Myles Turner was their 1st round pick who played extremely well in Summer League, but he’ll still need time to adjust to the physical toll that is the NBA.

The Pacers have some incredible guard play with Stuckey, Miles, Ellis, Hill, and Young, but with no real threat in the paint, the hope for a playoff berth from the Pacers is a bit unrealistic at the moment. If Indy can prove that small ball really is the way to go, they could be a great team in the East.
