Pacers schedule: How long can Indiana stay undefeated?

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Eight games into the season, the Indiana Pacers don't appear ready to slow down.

At 8-0, the Indiana Pacers don't appear to be slowing down, but when will their hot start finally include a loss?

That might not come until December for Frank Vogel's team. On Dec. 7, the Pacers hit a tough three-game stretch with a back-to-back on the road against the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder. On Dec. 10, Indiana returns home but faces the rival Miami Heat.

It's not out of the realm of possibility that the Pacers go undefeated until then.

Team Date
vs. Bucks Nov. 15
@ Chicago Nov. 16
@ New York Nov. 20
@ Boston Nov. 22
vs. 76ers Nov. 23
vs. T-Wolves Nov. 25
@ Charlotte Nov. 27
vs. Wizards Nov. 29
@ Clippers Dec. 1
@ Portland Dec. 2
@ Utah Dec. 4

The Milwaukee Bucks visit Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday with injuries plaguing the roster and Saturday, the Pacers hit a three-game road trip against Chicago, New York and Boston. The Bulls could be without Derrick Rose, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, and they already got beaten handily, 97-80, in their first meeting with Indiana. New York will have major issues handling the Pacers' size, and the Celtics could have the same trouble with their young roster.

From there, Indiana plays Philadelphia, Minnesota, Charlotte, Washington, the Los Angeles Clippers, Portland and Utah. If the Pacers lose before the calendar turns to December, a smart bet would be on that happening Nov. 25 in a date with the T-Wolves, which would mean a 13-0 start for Indy. A game against the Clippers on Dec. 1 could spell trouble, and Portland has been somewhat surprising, but on paper doesn't have the horses to match Indiana.

Could this streak continue, then?
