2014–15 Indiana Pacers season

The 2014–15 Indiana Pacers season was Indiana's 48th season as a franchise and 39th season in the NBA.[1] The Pacers finished fourth in Central Division and ninth in Eastern Conference. The Pacers missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010 after a 56–26 mark from the previous season, following two-straight Eastern Conference Finals appearances. Before the start of the season, storm clouds gathered around All-Star Paul George, who seriously injured his leg during a Team USA scrimmage. The injury required immediate surgery. George was originally to be ruled out for the entire season, but as the season progressed, he was talking about returning. He also announced before the season that he would be wearing number 13 and earned the nickname 'PG-13' (his initials and new jersey number). As the season winded down and after months of rehabilitation, George made his regular-season debut on April 5 in a home game against the Miami Heat. He finished the game with 13 points off the bench and received a standing ovation. His season ended, however, on April 16 when he strained his left calf in a game against Memphis. George was only able to play six games that season.
