The Pacers don’t care, and now, they’re done.

When they write the obituary on the 2015-2016 Indiana Pacers’ season (soon), it’ll read like an annual employee review under the “Employee Strengths” section where it says “shows up to work in uniform on time.” That’s about all the Pacers have going for them after a Game 3 evisceration by the Toronto Raptors on Thursday, 101-85.

Their coach and their star players keep repeating the patterns that lead to losses… at least in...
