"It is a unique situation where we may not have in years going forward what we have right now. " The Pacers won their sixth straight and extended their best start in franchise history to 15-1. For this one season the Pacers boast exceptional depth thanks to MVP candidate Paul George being on the last year of his rookie contract at $3.3 million, and former All-Star Danny Granger on an expiring deal paying him $14 million.
