Areas of strength:
Consistent 3-point shooting, solid group of young players who, at various rates, are developing.

Needs work:
Defense, maturity.

Two stats that matter:
-- Number of different starting lineups, mostly due to injuries.

3rd -- Rank in the NBA in 3-point field-goal attempts (1,896)

The Way to Go:
Just based on the average age of the current roster, the Pacers don't need to add multiple rookies. But they do need to upgrade at point guard, where Ford has lost his starting job in each of the past two seasons and Watson is a free agent. A number of players are entering their final contract years, which could make Indiana a free-agent player in the summer of 2011.
