Talk about ending the season on a high note. In the month of April, the Pacers are an impressive 8-1. Did a few of those wins come against teams like the Wizards, Raptors, and Cavaliers? Sure. But, they need to keep them coming in to ensure themselves home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. And, with the way their schedule looks between now and the end of the year, that shouldn't be a problem. —Chris Yuscavage
