Nate Taylor covers the Pacers with Candace Buckner for the Indianapolis Star.

Nate Taylor is a fresh voice now covering the Indiana Pacers. His first day with the Indianapolis Star was in September at Pacers training camp.

Taylor, a graduate of the University of Central Missouri, previously was a do-it-all journalist for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He is married and has an infant son, Hayden.

This week on the Vigilant Sports Pacers Podcast, I talk with Taylor, who offers a fresh perspective on the Pacers with the 2015-16 season halfway over.

The Pacers are 22-19, on pace to finish with a 44-18 record, good for seventh in the Eastern Conference.
