If you think television executives didn’t take notice of the Pacers’ surprise season in 2017-18... think again.
After having just one nationally televised game a season ago, Indiana drew a dozen national TV games for the 2018-19 season:
A trio of games against the Sixers make up a quarter of that schedule, including their lone ABC appearance on March 10th. The Pacers’ only home meeting with the defending champ Warriors will also be aired nationally January 28th on NBATV.
You’ll have to wait until February to see LeBron and Lance return to Indy - that game won’t make nationals TV, however. Neither will Paul George’s second return to his former home in March.
