Indiana Pacers Notes, Quotes 2008-08-29


Indiana Pacers Notes, Quotes 2008-08-29
--The Pacers will be tested early in the 2008-09 season.

The Pacers, who have missed the playoffs the past two seasons, open the season against Detroit (road), Boston (home), Phoenix (home) and Cleveland (road), teams that all made the playoffs last season.

Indiana also has five sets of back-to-back games in the first month of the season.

--The Pacers' season ticket sales are worse now than they were at this point last year.

"There's good news and bad news," Pacers co-owner Herb Simon said. "The good news is, the word out there is much more positive. People are really getting back to the Pacers. The bad news is we have not seen any real change in the ticket sales. We're not discouraged yet, but we're working really hard to turn that around."

Indiana averaged an NBA-worst 12,221 fans last season.

--A Pacers' official said current team television analyst and former NBA player Clark Kellogg's role with the franchise won't change despite recently being named CBS's lead college basketball analyst.

Kellogg, who only works Pacers road television games, has been a game and studio analyst for CBS for 16 years.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Tinsley, he's probably outlived his welcome here. He's a very talented player. Teams will give us a hard time because they know it's better for him and for us to have him play somewhere else. We're confident that we'll find a good place." -- Pacers owner Herb Simon, on point guard Jamaal Tinsley's future with the franchise.
