Assigning Credit for the Indiana Pacers' Playoff Run

Paul George (L) has come into his own in the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

The Indiana Pacers are on their longest NBA playoff run in almost a decade, and credit must be given where it's due. 

Indiana is a far cry from the team that limped toward the playoffs, losing five of its last six. Now, the 2013 NBA Central Division champions are duking it out with the Miami Heat for the right to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals.

Who would have thought?

There are many factors that have contributed mightily to this team's postseason resurgence. The bigger challenge is, where do we actually begin?

How about Indy's top-notch rebounding or the players' ability to respond?  

The only logical criteria here would be the absolute impact each factor has made on the Pacers' postseason success. 

Make no mistake about it, each of these factors carries equal weight. Had one of them not come into play, there's no telling how Indiana would have fared in the playoffs.
