The Indiana Pacers have developed into one of the best clutch teams in the NBA

The 2021-22 Indiana Pacers were one of the worst teams in the NBA in crunch time ever. They played 45 games with “clutch time,” which the NBA defines as a game within five points and five minutes or less to go, and they went 11-34 in those games. They failed to stop tight fights and were unlucky at both ends of the court.

“Seriously,” Pacers center Myles Turner highlighted the Pacers’ clutch struggles over the past year while asked a question about this season’s team.
