    The title says it all - after all 82 games are played, where will the Pacers end up?

    Let's just say tiebreakers will be needed for the final outcome(s).

    Such a tight race...

    And, as I told the Bulls fans around me at the end of the game Saturday night, our "C" team keeps rising to the challenge and is playing almost as well as Chicago and Washington and better than Orlando, Cleveland, and Philly.

    I wouldn't rule out #5, but I think we're destined for #7.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I think we will get 6th. But...who knows with this team.

    I picked 7th. But I don't think we are a lock.

    Tins is still really hurt. Doubt we would get past the first round unless the 1999-2000 Reggie comes back.

    7th seed is what I want. We are not winning a championship this season why are just not strong enough, but kicking Detroits *** out of the playoffs would be close to a championship feeling.

    We are going to get 8th. Do you honestly think that we will beat out Philly? Especially considering our schedule for our last 13 games? I don't think so.

    With a bit of luck, we could nab 7th, or even 6th. With no good luck, we'll just barely sneak in at 8th. So.... 8th.

    Wow, has it been a while or what, Snickers.

    Just to add something useful to this thread---I would be downright distraught if the Pacers were not to make the playoffs this year.

    It's good to be home again.
    I've more or less accepted that the season's already gone down the waste receptacle, so getting a decent draft pick is logically a good thing. But the idea of missing the playoffs for the second time in the past 800 years makes me very not happy.

    Me too. To have a winning record after all this is a great accomplishment. Reggie deserves one last dance.

    Oh I really don't want to be 7th but thats where we headed. We might have a chance at a first round win if we got 6th, but there is no way we're beating Detroit in 7. And if we have to lose I'd rather lose to a team with a little more class than Detroit. Don't think I could handle Rashweed's smug *** parading around Conseco like he beat the real Pacers. I'd rather lose to an up and coming team like Washington or Chicago or Cleveland. It would be nice to see those teams start winning again.

    I agree, but I don't want to lose to Cleveland.

    Philly's been playing pretty well, I imagine they'll overtake the Pacers pretty easily. We're lucky NJ's dropped a few, I think we'll be able to hold them at bay at least. Eighth seems about right, although it seems karma would dictate we get seventh.

    I still think we're destined for 7th, but I think we're more likely to go 8th than any higher. If the Chicago game had gome the other way, it could have made the difference.

    We will finish 7th and play the Pistons in the first round. It ain't rocket science or some kind of voodoo mojo, just economics

    Pistons will win the series in NO LESS than 6 ... could easily go 7. The drama will get milked for all it's worth.

    I like your thinking!

    Even if we got beat later, taking Detroit out of the playoffs would be immensely satisfying!
    ---------

    I picked us finishing 6th earlier in another thread, so that's how I voted.

    My picking skill with this team since the brawl though is really bad. Last year I picked 18 of the last 21 games correctly. I started out this year before the brawl with 3 wins in the guess the score contest, since then . . . bluntly put . . . I really don't know what I'm talking about! (grin)
