Last season saw the Indiana Pacers comfortably exceed the relatively tepid expectations which surrounded them. Can they continue their development in 2018/19? Take a look at their full NBA Live 19 roster, as well as their entire playbook, below.
Darren Collison, PG, 83
Best stats: 91 Stamina, 88 Speed, 87 Free Throw
Collison had a typically steady 2017/18 season, averaging 12.4 points, 5.3 assists and 1.3 steals as the Pacers’ starting point guard. Forming a solid backcourt combination with Oladipo, another capable ball-handler, he improved his ability to play off the ball, knocking down what was comfortably a career high 46.8% from beyond the arc.
Victor Oladipo, SG, 89
Best stats: 95 Steal, 94 Driving Layup, 93 Vertical
Oladipo’s first year in Indiana saw him improve significantly, turning from a mediocre starter to an All-Star in the space of a season – and winning the NBA’s Most Improved Player award as a result. He put up career-high stats across the board, averaging 23.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals as he led the Pacers to the number five seed in the Eastern Conference.
Bojan Bogdanovic, SF, 78
Playstyle: Wing Shooter
Best stats: 87 Stamina, 85 Mid-Range Shot, 85 Free Throw
Bogdanovic had his best season as an NBA player in 2017/18, playing an important role in a good team. His perimeter shooting – already a strength in previous seasons – improved even further, to the point where he knocked down over 40% of long range attempts for the first time in his career. In total, he put up 14.3 points a game to go with 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
Thaddeus Young, PF, 80
Playstyle: Post Anchor
Best stats: 90 Stamina, 89 Driving Layup, 85 Post Moves
Young had a consistent 2017/18 in his second season as a Pacer, playing an important role at both ends of the floor. His 11.8 points per game came at a clip of 48.7%, while he also contributed 6.3 boards, 1.9 assists, and 1.7 steals a night.
Myles Turner, C, 83
Playstyle: Post Anchor
Best stats: 93 Shot Block, 90 Post Defense, 87 Strength
Turner had a season to forget in 2017/18, with a combination of injury and poor form contributing to a drop off in all statistical categories from the season prior. Playing 28.2 minutes per game, he added 12.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per night, though he did shoot a career-high 35.7% from long range. His talent is unquestionable and at 22 years of age he has plenty of time to develop into a high level player, but this season will likely see him take small steps rather than a quantum leap.
