We talk about a couple of surprise teams from last season. Both teams won 48 games and made some noise in the postseason. The Pacers pushed the Cavaliers as hard in the postseason as any team in the Eastern Conference. Victor Oladipo stepped up and had an all-NBA season and was awarded as the league’s most improved player. They are bringing back largely the same roster with the important addition of Tyreke Evans. What are the areas in which they need to demonstrate improvement? The Pelicans swept the Blazers in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. Jrue Holiday was the best guard in that series. They have added Julius Randle and Elfrid Payton. Will they have an opportunity to build upon last season and improve upon their results from last season?
All of this and more.
