    Just updated the projected lineup, apparently Ron will miss tonight's game with a thumb injury.

    well change that line-up again

    Ron is playing (due to all the other "injuries"( mostly because Bender and Pollard are out, with the latter we lose defense and that's why Ron is playing I assume, will juts shoot lil i hope.

    Primoz will make an appearance that is more then a token one, he will have to replace Pollie

    Still it is time for him to start showing and he has the size to match up Yao, plus he practices with guys a lot worse then the ones Yao is playing with in practise

    anyway, to late to change my predictions so we will go with a lot of faith in the guys, and especially in JO.

    I made some updates to the initial post. I guess we'll find out in a few minutes how much Ron does end up playing.

    I am psyched that I get to watch this on ESPN tonight!

    Bill Walton doing our game again? Bah.

    Hope Artest is alright to play and not forcing it. His offense has been a bit shaky lately sure thumb is a big part of it. Got injured in NJ I think right?

    Tinsley with the 3!

    acers: Pacers lead 5-3 with 10:53 to go in the 1st

    The ESPN announcers said that the decision to put Ron back in was made with about 30 minutes to go before the game started

    I think they just said that Ron's going to have his doctor in NY, who operated on him before, take a look at the thumb.

    acers: 11-7 Pacers at the 9 minute mark

    Started well on offense, but they are starting to pick apart our D now. 13-13 timeout Carlisle.

    we just need to get our barings on defense, something is not ticking there, i still feel confident, we haven't played our 3d q yet

    JO needs to get straight at Yao and force some fouls, when JO goes in, either he CAto will be fouling.

    GO PACERS!

    Not sure what happened to Cato there.

    Ah, it looks like he got kneed in the stomach when JO went up for the dunk. Don't hurt him, JO, Cato's on my fantasy league team...

    Rockets lead 17-14

    Hmm, Pacers forgot to go after the rebound there.

    Artest needs to stop shooting from distance. 1-6.
