The Pacers won their first pre season game handily, putting away the New Orleans Pelicans 113-96. The retooled offense in Indiana is clearly showing it’s strength, and Paul George thinks that’s just the beginning. George is predicting that the Pacers will easily score 115 every night.
“Everything was just free flow and we’re still trying to figure that out,” George said. “We’ve been so used to a set or calling of plays and now we’re getting that freedom. I think that’s going to take some time, but once we get it, we could easily be a 115-point team a night.”
All 5 members of the Pacers new starting lineup averaged double digit points every game last season. That was clear last night when the team saw 7 double digit scorers.
If we have a free flow where we’re not coming down pounding the ball or we’re not coming down looking to call plays, it puts us in attack mode every possession,” George said Wednesday. “Coach is fine with us getting a good look with 23 on the clock or two on the clock. It’s on us to push the tempo and get good looks.”
The Pacers will be an interesting team to watch this season, and could have the potential to make a decent run at the post season.
