Since when? Last year is the only year i thought the pacers were better and it was because paul george stepped his game up and hibbert FINALLY stepped his game up to the point to where he wasn't severely overrated. Before the end of this past regular season i had bulls as the #2 team with pacers/knicks going for the #3 spot
On paper the Pacers have ALWAYS been deeper than the Bulls, it just so happens that the Bulls have favorable matchups with majority of their key players, and at the end of the day, Paul George's "step up" was not MVP like. We shall see this year, but as I stated, their key players just so happen to play the same position as some of our best defensive players. Which is why they always end up losing to us. Match up wise, they wont give us problems. They probably won't ever beat us until they land a PG who will force D.Rose to work defensively.
