It's that time again. Starting tomorrow, March 1, we can help get the Pacers home game against Philly (3/8) on NBA TV by voting for the game at NBA.com's Fan Night (http://www.nba.com/nbatv/fannight/). This game is broadcast nationally.

Here's the deal - if we win it again like we did in February, then one PD fan that says he voted on this thread will get my personal tickets to the March 8 game and a Tyler Hansbrough bobblehead (these haven't been made to non-STH yet). Additionally,anyone unable to make it to the game (work, out of market, etc) will be eligible for a Hansbrough autographed photo. This little promo is exclusive to PD members, so make sure you post to the thread and call out whether you can make it to the Feb. 8 game as that will determine which prize you'd be eligible for.

Vote here:

Voting starts March 1 and ends March 3.

Last month, you were the reason we were selected for Fan Night for the Feb. 15 game. Outside of the outcome of the game itself, the broadcast was a lot of fun. El Pacero started it off w/ an interview w/ Chris Webber, Kevin McHale and Ernie Johnson. The fans were loud and the NBA TV guys were impressed. Let's do it again.

As much as I want us to be viewed nationally, I can't stand watching Pacers games on NBA TV.

I'll still vote anyway.

This is gonna be a good game.

If you normally watch the games on Fox Sport, then they're still on FS if you're in that region and it's blacked out on NBAtv. At least, that's how it was for Miami.

I'm voting, and if the game you have tickets to is March 8, I already have tickets. But I'd be interested in the other goodies.

I'll vote again but last month the reason we were selected was because the Heat were on the ballot next to us.

The reason we won't win this time is because the Heat are on the ballot next to somebody else.

If any game is ripe for being flexed out, it would be that one.

Yep - March 8. My bad. I fixed it in original post, too.

I voted but it looks like it's not going to work out this time. Portland vs. Miami is at 79% right now. The Indy Philly game is in last place even behind GSW vs. Cleveland. :(

Easy now. We can win this thing. Don't let this first returns stop us. We can get this. Of course it is difficult, but we can get this.

I voted but it looks like its just a drop in the ocean. Another Zan Tabak sighting....

*EDIT* I don't know how they count the votes and whether or not its possible for me to vote numerous times but I just voted 25 times to try and increase our percentage and it didn't do anything. Either there have been so many people vote already that 25 times is barely a fraction of a percent or it simply won't allow the same person to vote multiple times.

I don't think we have a chance of winning it but at least we improved and aren't last at the moment anymore.

It's nearly impossible to compete with the major markets... and China. I bet they're voting Portland and Miami.

The March 30th game Indiana vs Detroit that was scheduled to be aired has been switched and I think New York is being aired.

Thanks to everyone who voted. As you can see at the NBA Fan Night site, the selected game is Portland/Miami. I appreciate you guys taking the time to vote even when we were down out of the gate. That's what makes this board great.

We will do this again next week for the March 15 game versus New York. Here are the games we'll have to beat: MIL/ATL, WAS/CHI and DAL/POR. I think we have a great opportunity to get selected.

Any suggestions from the crowd on how we can improve voting next time? You guys are the real fans, so any ideas would be considered.

And as a thank you for voting, the first 5 people that PM me on Digest will get a Pacers Prize Pass. Only requirement is that you had to have voted for this week's Fan Night.

I think it will come down to IND/NY and DAL/POR... I do think we will win that one.
