While the national power rankings struggle to find a consensus #1 between the Clippers, Thunder, and Spurs, the Indiana Pacers have crept into the top 10, with the common theme of the week involving plenty of loud murmurs about how the Pacers sure seem to be coming together as of late. While the win against Miami isn't reflected in the human polls this week, it should further turn heads, assuming they don't come out flat against the New York Knicks on Thursday night in front of the entire NBA landscape.
The Pacers moved to 11-3 after falling below .500 this time a month ago, with eight coming at home after the road heavy schedule softened. They're currently on an eight game winning streak at home, the team's longest since winning eight consecutive in March of the 2009-10 season. You wouldn't be alone in being surprised the worst Pacers team in recent memory having the longest home winning streak, but it just shows the strength of Indiana at home.
