    All the way if we get some breaks like Detroit has been getting.

    We'll be lucky to win 2 games.

    I have seen nothing that will convince me we will get out of the 1st round.

    I don't mind driving the Pacers band wagon, you can hop on after the Lakers get beat in the first round.

    Doesn't it depend on who we're playing? Does anyone think we have an equal chance against whoever?

    In 8th, we have NO chance against the pisstons, although we may win a game or two. But with some effort and our Mr. Hyde team, we have a chance against the Nets and Heat. With our Dr. Jeckyll team, no way.

    Depends on who we play. if we play Detroit we'll get swept.

    Miami - we'll win one game

    Nets - probably two games, I think

    The Nets are the Pacers only chance. I don't think the Nets matchup very well with the Pacers, then again they have had a nice string of wins to close out the season.

    Unless they somehow get to the 5th spot (is that even possible still?), I don't think they will win more than 2 games. They're a horrible road team and it's going to come back to bite them big in the playoffs.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I don't believe it is possible. Pacers could pass the Wizards, if they lose their last two and the Pacers win tomorrow night. But that would mean the Bucks beat the Wiz tonight and the Pacers and Bucks would then be tied and the Bucks have the tie-breaker.

    I believe that is correct.
    We win; Wiz win = 6th and Nets
    We lose; Toronto loses = 8th and pisstons
    otherwise = 7th and Heat

    I'm not sure this team has enough heart to keep from being swept in the playoffs. Losing the first game will zap them and they'll just want the season over at that point.

    And I don't know that we can steal the first game so I'd say we're in trouble.

    UB's prediction looks about right in a 'about the best I can see happening' kind of way.

    Dang guys! This team has trouble against the have nots of the league, it puts forth effort against the good ones. They won the season series against both NJ and Miami. As I said, if the Pacers get the breaks Detroit has been getting they have a chance at the finals.

    Put down the bottle. You don't need that stuff. Just take it one day at a time. Don't let this season drive you to drink.

    Yes.."getting breaks" is why Detroit has been one of the best 2 teams in the league for the past three years. Give me a break.

    I'll list the reasons:

    1. They're damn good.
    2. They've been lucky. (Health for them, lackthereof from opponents)
    3. I hate Detroit.

    i say its a sweep against detroit. we may take one against jersey or miami. given that this team has the worst road record of any playoff team- i don't really see any chance of winning at someone else's place.
    a chance at the finals? yeh i suppose so but, then again, i also have a chance to win it all when i play the lottery. the odds of that happening are about the same for the pacers going to the finals. no team that i can recall with a record this bad and with all the chemistry problems this one has- has ever been to the finals. and it ain't gonna happen this time either.
    our playoffs end no later than 5 games.
