As the 11-25 Indiana Pacers prepare to tip-off against the 19-19 Toronto Raptors at Conseco Fieldhouse, ESPN has released their weekly Power Rankings.
Not unexpectedly, the Pacers have remained in the bottom 5, staying steady at 27th (out of a possible 30 teams).
This is what the cruel, mean, horrible horrible people (just Marc Stein really) had to say about them:
With Granger mercifully back from injury, T.J. Ford banished to the bench and the names of Jeff Foster and Troy Murphy coming up often in trade speculation, Indy is pretty newsy for a team stuck in the bottom five.
The Raptors, on the other hand, also remained steady, at 15th, despite having gone 8-2 in their last 10.
Come on Pacers. I have a good feeling about this game. Show Jarret Jack what he’s missing out on in Indiana!
