The Pacers are 5-13 in the win-loss department. In that same time frame there are very few teams who have a worse record.

Cleveland Cavaliers, 1-19
Washington Wizards, 4-15
New Jersey Nets, 4-15
Sacramento Kings, 4-14
Minnesota Timberwolves, 5-16
Indiana Pacers, 5-13
Detroit Pistons, 6-13
Golden State Warriors, 7-12
Toronto Raptors, 7-13
Charlotte Bobcats, 8-10
Milwaukee Bucks, 8-10

I'd say that's more than a slump. Looking at the rest of the league over that same course of time really puts it in perspective, just how bad we've been.

I really miss the November 2010 Pacers.

I agree. We have played bad ball for 4 years now. I am not sure why a month of good ball convinced people we were turning the corner.

The Clippers have been playing really well lately.

10-8 since December 1st

That's right people, the CLIPPERS have doubled the Pacers' amount of wins in the same time frame.

Because Baron is back and DeAndre is a force now. They might be a playoff team next yr (or this yr if they were in the east)

Blake Griffin has made a huge difference for LAC. He's got rookie of the year already wrapped up.

Our schedule has been pretty brutal. Despite the record we nearly beat the knicks on the road, and the spurs. Sure we gave a few away, but we have more than enoguh time to recover. The pacers always seem to wax late anyhow.

I think people are overreacting a bit lately.

We always suck in December under this regime. Our two best players are in a slump (Granger seems to be coming out of it), I think this team will bounce back, probably hold on to 7 or maybe slip to the 8th seed, finish right around 500 or a tad below.

I think this is going to play out like the last two years, the only difference being our usual late season win streak will actually put us into the playoffs this year instead of ruining our draft position. And thats progress!

I still hate the coach.

Yeah, I will call you crazy for that. Griffin is good, but lets be realistic.

I don't like that he is eligible for that. Granted, he was injured and missed all of last year, but the fact remains that his rookie season was last year. It just so happened that he missed it due to the injury.

In my eyes, he's a 2nd year player.

.... he knows he's still a rookie. He just said to him, he's not.

Which I don't get that view either. He didn't play any games in the NBA. What if he stayed in college last year and the same injury happens, and he never plays a game. Then he comes to the NBA in the same situation he is in now.

No different.

Look at his stats and say the clippers were in playoff postion i would say he deserves considerration. All i said was he should get some votes not win the award.

Fair enough. Griffin has no legit shot at MVP this year, he might get a few stray votes though, but even that would surprise me.
