    Just as well, maybe he needs a day to rest and then the Allstar break and come back stronger and more energized

    I'm suprised that he only got a one game suspension. He yelled in the refs face, then while being held back looked as is he was about to physically attack the ref, plus he kicked a chair too.

    Good thing he only got one game.
    Let's go Pacers

    Not surprising. So is this afternoon the Keith McLeod coming out party or the Oriene Greene show?

    We NEVER play well during early afternoon games.


    When was the last time we won one? April 2005 vs. Washington?

    1: UB is right, we'll win.
    2: on the suspension, Is it not "weird" in this day and age where anyone commenting on the refs gets > 10K fine (some even 50) which is always announced before the next game, we have no word on fines for RC and JO?

    Perhaps by giving DA the game for the kicking of the chair only, they perhaps are admitting that whatever Crawfor CS did, was so abominable that it deserved "lenience" towards the Pacers.

    God forbid it might help towards future games.

    And you too.
    But do you really think we'll catch any breaks from the refs? We don't have a superstar player.
