OPPONENT ANALYSIS: Most think Indiana is Miami’s top challenger in the East – largely because it pushed the eventual champs to seven games in the conference finals. The return of Danny Granger and the acquisition of Luis Scola are supposed to help the Pacers become even better. However, will Granger and Paul George coexist? Will Granger ever be the same player again after missing nearly all of last season with a knee injury? Will the departure of Tyler Hansbrough be a significant loss?

BEST STORYLINE: Victor Oladipo makes his NBA regular season debut in the same state he starred at while in college. While fans will be enthused about their hometown Pacers, they also will likely cheer and support Oladipo for his accomplishments and dedication to the Hoosiers.
