    This game could be more important than making the playoffs this year. It could be a factor determining if Paul George will stay or go. If we make noise in the playoffs, that might be important for him.

    No pressure of course...

    I'm really nervous about this game. Bulls and Heat could easily win and Pacers are playing a tough Hawks team who would love to play spoiler. UHG!!

    I am assuming that both Miami and Chicago wins... and that Atlanta will be about the only team locked in to not rest any players.

    No excuses so. If you can't beat Hawks reserves at home then you don't deserve anything.

    Going to the game tonight makes this news equally exciting and disappointing. Hopefully PG and the Pacers continue to bring the energy and fire of the last couple weeks. Obviously we need the win, but keeping the good mojo flowing for the Pacers right now is as important as anything.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    So if we lose and manage to win the lottery he still walks? I think you're being far too definite here.

    As someone that is a fan of competition, this is somewhat blah news to me. However the Pacers now have zero excuse about winning tonights game with relative ease.

    It's great to see Scott "I exchanged 304 phone calls with Tim Donaghy over a four month span" Foster as one of the officials in a game with these sort of stakes.

    Glad Hardaway is out or he would have won that game by himself.

    I think he meant literally. Dunleavy is an ******* thug and instigator. He'll probably have a shiv hidden in his socks.

    Didn't they just get two freebies in a row? Granted, Indiana still has to win the games.


    Remember when we could have gotten 1-2 solid players and a possible Top 3 draft pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by trading away Paul George?

    I doubt it. Paul George has made a pretty strong case for All-NBA, unless Bird pulls a dick move and trades him no matter what. If I had to pick, it would be....

    LeBron James
    Kawhi Leonard
    AD or Cousins (can't be both)
    Paul George (Yes, second team)
    Draymond Green
    Jimmy Butler or Gordon Haywood or Blake Griffin
