The Indiana Pacers currently sit in third place in the Eastern Conference standings through the first half of the season.
Even though they haven't had forward Danny Granger in the lineup due to a knee injury, the Pacers have still excelled because of the play from Paul George and David West.
The Pacers have one of the best defenses in the league, as they rank first in opponents points per game and opponents field goal percentage.
Also, the Pacers rank first in the league with 46 rebounds per game.
Although the Pacers are playing really well so far, they shouldn't get complacent since the top of the conference standings are very close.
The Pacers need to continue the success for the rest of the year, if they want a high seed in the playoffs.
