Chris Webber mentioned some good things about our crowd.

He pretty much thinks the home fans should always take over no matter who's playing against the home team.

Seems like everyone affiliated with the Bulls are jerks.

I can never listen to their announcers even if it's not the Pacers playing them.

Based on what that writer is saying, it sounds like he's never dealt with the playoffs before. Anything can happen. It's like everyone is 0-0 once it starts.

I was kind of surprised he was being that way on a pregame show like that.

Every other writer I've seen them have on has been nothing but nice and unbiased.

This guy was a total toolbag. He was joking, but joking with a sense of cockiness.

Screw Chicago.

Bulls are the greatest team ever.

Sure seemed like that's the case this season.

They did finish with the best record, but it seems like people are forgetting that they haven't exactly competed for years.

A season of not making the playoffs lands them an MVP with the first pick in the draft.

Just wanted to say I'll **** and moan and vent a lot in this thread tonight, but I genuinely love this team. I'm so happy for them, and for true Pacers fans. We've been through a lot these last few years, folks. But I know that, like me, you've watched every damn game regardless.

I can't remember the last time the Fieldhouse was that deafening even on TV.

Obviously sounds like a lot more Pacers fans than Bulls fans. All the Bulls are in their own little section behind the bench.

This is going to be a tough game to get something done on the offensive end. So defensively, we gotta play our asses off and not leave Rose open.

Rose is clearly bothered by both George and Jones.

Even if we can't do it, we've given every other team in the NBA the recipe to stop the Bulls.

Maybe the Pacers should have tried to have the first four games played in Chicago, because the execution and intensity did not carry over to Conseco.

Yes, most coaches tighten the rotation, but going deeper into the bench is how the Pacers have been competitive so far.

It's allowed their guys to play harder and expend more energy on defense and it gives the other team a look that they may not have expected entering the series (the unfamiliarity advantage would obviously wear off the more you played).

That and the difference between the Pacers and most teams is that the Pacers don't have much if any dropoff. The deep bench is probably the Pacers strongest aspect.
