Paul George and David West have both helped the Indiana Pacers to an NBA-best 34-9 record through Jan. 27.

With their NBA-best 34-9 record as of Jan. 27, the Indiana Pacers have made it known they're serious title contenders. Along the way, we have learned several things about this team during the season's first half.

One of these is Paul George is a legitimate MVP candidate.

On the other hand, Indy still leads the league in defense, allowing just 90.2 points per game, per ESPN stats.

However, they have a tendency to be sloppy defensively on the roadsomething Pacers fans don't want to see come playoff time. 

These are just two of the things we learned about Indiana.

Granted, we are only a little more than halfway through the 2013-14 NBA season. At this point, the team has already made a resounding statement.

The bigger question remainscan the Pacers keep it up? 

All indications say they will.
