But we're not out of it yet. All it takes is a 6 point swing and we're right back in the hunt. Remember our third quarter against bulls? We could do that as well.

Another thing I'd like to just point out to the refs (not any excuse, just something I see not called way too often):

As everyone has noted, that was one ugly half of basketball. Hopefully it will motivate the Pacers to dig deep and come out and play with pride in the second half. Boston started out cold, but then they started making a ton of shots. Their outside game started clicking for them, and it opened up their inside game. Amazingly, this could have been alot worse. Antoine missed alot of shots in the paint early.

I thought we started out great with our defense, but after the Celts got on a run, we lost our composure. Their defense cranked it up, and we decided to chip in by turning the ball over when ever possible. It was absolutely incredible to watch...scarier than any Stephen King novel that I have ever read.

The one good thing is that we are truly not this bad, and Boston isn't this good. Hopefully we can save face by playing them strong in the second half. We need that in order to show them, and us, that we can play with them.

Pacer leadership has been lacking so far. It is time for our veterans to pull these guys together.

The only good thing is that, with a strong amount of confidence, I honestly don't think we can play any worse.

I will be cheering for them no matter what.

It is valid in my mind. We know what kind of numbers that Pierce and Walker can put up. The biggest question coming into this series was whether the Celtics bench and young players could do in the playoffs what they've done in the regular season. My biggest worry was that they would.
