Fortunately, tonight's opponents are the Indiana Pacers.<br>The Pacers aren't anything to sneeze at, and are still<br>making a run for the playoffs in the East. They beat the<br>Warriors in Indiana last night, and generally beat the<br>opponents they're supposed to beat. But still, they are<br>below the NBA average when it comes to talent, and are<br>pretty beatable when it comes right down to it. The main<br>problem for the Thunder tonight will be the low post combo<br>of Hibbert and McRoberts. Usually, Granger and Collison<br>will get their points, but Hibbert and McRoberts will be the<br>X-Factors that could push the Pacers over the hump and<br>give them a victory...CONTINUE READING AT W2LC.com (http://www.welcometoloudcity.com/2011/3/2/2024583/oklahoma-city-thunder-vs-indiana-pacers-game-59-preview-can-the-new)</TD></TR></TABLE>

im looking forward to seeing lance play tonight. i think this kid could really be good sometime next season.. even sooner than George.

one thing im gonna say right now. Boyle said he has nvr seen more talent on the pacers than George or Steph..

he must be forgetting about John Bender. that guy was a 7'0 human pogo stick and could shoot from deep. closest comparison is kevin durant (who we play tonight).

sorry Boyle, but Bender is in the discussion.

even sucks more the guy we traded him for we coulda really used to go up against Shaq in 00 nba finals.

add AD to Dale in a 7game series and things get much more interesting.

Bender was every bit talented as George and Stephenson.

I fully expect DC, Rush, Granger, and Josh to play like crap for the first six minutes causing us to get down by 15-20 early and then our bench comes in and gets us in single digits and our starters continue to keep us out of the game.. By the end of the games it's somewhat up for grabs due to our awesome bench and then DC and Danny go super-jumpshot-hero mode and we lose.. Our starters are bad.

Prove me wrong Pacers.. We need one of these road wins.

The Pacers have very little rotation. It's causing them problems. Mike Dunleavey helped them there Jeff can pick's well. Everyone else just stands around. Causing 1 on 1 iso's and don't have the skills to beat their defender.

Can we put an end to this "no one cares" business?! Of course they care. You've got to be blind if you think pro athletes don't care about winning. You know, the things that gives them recognition, more money, and a sense of pride?

Not really. He wants someone to play physical on Durant. Rush and PG are very good defenders, but they aren't as physical as DJ.

Also can we knock off the "girls" stuff. I don't think Catchings is afraid of anything.

By the end of the games it's somewhat up for grabs due to our awesome bench and then DC and Danny go super-jumpshot-hero mode and we lose.. Our starters are bad.
