    Get the ball to Sheed, early and often.

    Hopefully he can take Oneal out of the team concept like he did in game 4, with some early baskets.

    Also, get the ball to whomever reggie's guarding, wether it be Rip or Prince.

    Lastly, handcuff Arroyo to McDyess. When one goes in, the other has to play too.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Game 4 was so much like Game 5 ECF from last year, I'm very worried this game will be alot like game 6 was in the ECF last year.

    Really if they can just hit a freakin shot and stick to the gameplan of Fosterizing the Pistons with good play from Tins, they can win this.

    Jamaal Tinsley. The unequivocal key player in this series. If the Pistons can play as good a defense on him as they did in Game 4, advantage Detroit. If Tinsley performs his Jason Kidd impersonation like in Game 2 & 3, advantage Indiana.

    I think Detroit comes out somewhat lackadaisical, allowing the Pacers (and specifically Tinsley) to impose their tempo and their will on the game.

    This board is quietly confident, with 75 to 80% thinking the Pacers have a great shot to win.

    I agree with them. The Pacers take the critical Game 5 in Detroit, and look to close out the Pistons in Conseco Fieldhouse on Thursday.

    Hopefully the Pacers come out playing with a sense of urgency, something they didnt do in game 4.

    Man.... I love a game that's actually decided by which team plays the hardest. Hopefully we'll be revved up for this one, especially since we just got kicked in the groin. When was the last time we lost two in a row?

    Don't you all just love this? The excitement, the rivals, the playoffs? Man, I really am going to miss all this like, gameday and all that, if we don't advance.

    Handcuff Larry Brown to the bench and tape his mouth shut, so he won't be running up and down the sidelines looking like someone just kicked him in the sack.

    That was on purpose - while each of the above might be factors in the Pacers' poor shooting, the poll is asking which one (if any) you consider to be the one that has the biggest effect.

    Me too. I love this. I really hope we can advance, because I just love the excitement, the suspense, the action. Tonight is a BIG game. Much bigger than game 4. Reggie was wrong about game 4. Game 6 will be the biggest game for the Pacers in a long time. Game 5 is a close second.

    Go Pacers! Please, quiet Detroit.

    Get a rebound JO. Don't let Prince inhale the offensive boards.
