The 2012-2013 Indiana Pacers recorded their most wins during the regular season (49) and advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since the 2003-2004 team that was led by Jermaine O’Neal and then-named Ron Artest.
With their season now over it’s time to look back at a campaign that saw Paul George announce his presence as one of the best young players in the NBA and Roy Hibbert awake from his struggles at various points throughout the regular season to once again play at an All-Star level during the playoffs. Despite falling short of their ultimate goal, hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the Pacers had one of their better years in recent memory and Hibbert took the opportunity to thank the fans who supported them through it in Sunday’s Indianapolis Star.
According to ESPN, the Pacers were 25th in home attendance during the regular season with an average of 15,269 per contest. Hopefully, after Indiana pushing the defending champion Miami Heat to seven games in this year’s conference finals, the Pacers will move up the list in 2013-2014.
