March 1 vs. Pacers
Take a good look, Celtics fans: This is the kind of team you’d like to be in two or three years. The Pacers built a contender in-house. They took Paul George with the 10th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft and turned him into a star. They developed, then kept, center Roy Hibbert. They survived the loss of their presumed best player, Danny Granger, and made it to the Eastern Conference Final with defense and grit.
