INDIANA PACERS EXPERIENCE:
Indiana is a hotbed of some of the most dedicated basketball fans in the country, and the locals follow their Indiana Hoosiers with remarkable passion. This love of basketball also translates to the professional sphere, where residents have supported the Indiana Pacers since their inaugural year in 1967. The Pacers started out in the American Basketball Association and quickly became one of the league's first dynasties by capturing titles in 1970, 1972 and 1973. The Pacers took the throne as most successful team in ABA history, and were led by a tight-knit group of players, including Mel Daniels, George McGinnis and Roger Brown.
The Pacers joined the NBA during the 1976 season, and like many other ABA teams, they had a tough time adjusting to the new level of play. Over the next decade, the team would be on the wrong side of trades and made some questionable personnel decisions, causing the organization to flounder throughout the 1980s. It wasn't until 1987 that the squad had a return to prominence by drafting one of the best long-distance shooters in NBA history, Reggie Miller.
While Miller didn't make an immediate impact on the court, he slowly but surely worked his way into the starting lineup. Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown came to the team during the 1993-94 season and gave the team instant credibility in a highly competitive Eastern Conference. It was during this period that Miller became a household name, as he strung together a number of impressive playoff performances. The Pacers were a fixture in the playoffs throughout the late '90s and early 2000s and even made an appearance in the NBA Finals in the 1999-2000 season, only to lose to the Lakers.
The Pacers peaked during the early part of the decade and began a slow decline and rebuilding process. The team returned to the playoffs in 2011, but lost to the top-seeded Chicago Bulls in six games. But with a fanbase that eats, sleeps and breathes basketball and a management team that is committed to winning, the Pacers have a bright future ahead of them. While an NBA title has eluded them after all these years, the team's fortunes are looking up as they look to bring a championship crown to Indianapolis.

Indiana Pacers Always a good time and great basketball. January 8, 2013
Indiana Pacers Home Game I purchased tickets from Ticket City for a Christmas gift and they arrived a couple days later making it by the 25th! I was shocked how fast I received the tickets. I took my father (age 60) and brother (40) to the Pacers -vs- Nets game on 1/28/11. It was a wonderful experience and the tickets were fantastic for the price. We sat in the club level on the first row and watching the game was a hit. I will continually buy my tickets and go to the Pacer game through Ticket City. The Pacers also won! January 31, 2011
The service was very easy to use. We purchased the tickets online and they came very quickly. Our seats were in the Club Level at a very reasonable price. Will use this service again for future tickets and would recommend to others. March 10, 2011
