Indiana Pacers: What a Difference a Year Makes

December 29, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I remember photographing the Indiana Pacers about a year ago at Barclays Center...and was quite impressed by them. They were a serious, business-like, well-oiled machine....and the hottest team in the NBA. They were unstoppable. 

And then everything drastically changed: a disastrous 2nd half of the season and they lost two of their stars, Paul George and Lance Stephenson, during the off-season. 

When I photographed them recently at Barclays...it was clear they were a totally different team. They now have a losing record and are unlikely to make the playoffs. That well-oiled machine I watched with awe a year ago was nowhere to be seen. Yet they still had the muster to defeat the Brooklyn Nets handily that night, 110-85. But I wonder how often current Pacers Roy Hibbert, David West, George Hill, C.J. Watson and Luis Scola...and their fans...reminisce about a year ago and wonder what could have been.

Roy HIbbert shoots as fellow Pacer David West looks on.... Luis Scola of the Indiana Pacers dunks one in...

 

Indiana Pacers David West and C.J. Watson share a laugh...

 

George Hill of the Indiana Pacers has his eyes on the prize....

Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers was quite focused before and during the game...

Former Brooklyn Net C.J. Watson is all smiles...
