IND vs PHX NBA 2020-21
Sunday, January 10, 2021 05:30 AM
The Pacers weren’t shy about remarking McMillan’s 3-16 playoff record once they fired him, so we’ll work with the idea that’s where they seek real progress. That won’t be easy from a middle-to-low seed in an improved Eastern Conference, but continuous improvement through the primary 72 can get them there for subsequent seven.
The Suns are bringing an elite backcourt with amazing passing and creativity which alone are often the element that, at the very least, puts them during a play-in situation for a playoff spot. And really, the postseason is that the next step for a franchise that hasn’t been there since 2010, the second-longest stretch within the NBA. Paul worked wonders for a young OKC team in his only season there and therefore the Suns hope for much of an equivalent leadership and impact. Yet it’s not all about him. this is often a “next step” team that’s positioned to require one, especially if Booker is prepared to be an enormous star.
