    The odds will be overwhelming! But anything can happen and the Pistons did it last year. But in lamest terms NO.

    I'm more optimistic about this series now than ever. Yes, if the stars align right we could do it. It has been done before...so why not again?

    Man it would be really tough to comeback. The pistons would have beaten us three games in a row. Who's to say we could not win against them. especially with 2 home games left.

    If the Pistons lose tonight they won't be down 3-1. That's a big diffrence from having the series tied at 2-2.

    range: :

    On the flip side if the Pistons were down 3-1 to the Pacers I would be pissed like I'm sure Pacers fans are p*ssed.

    The Pacers could be up 3-0 now.

    And the the Pistons could also be up 3-0. Losing a game that you had no buzness lose'n ticks me off.

    Very, very tough. But if the Pistons win tonight, that will be three straight for them so why couldn't the pacers win three straight.

    So it is possible, I know I won't give up until a team has 4 wins in this series.

    I said before this series started we should all be prepared for many twists and turns,

    I still think a few twists and turns are on the way.

    Just get to game #7.

    Down 3-1 it is still mathematically possible for the Pacers to win the series. Therefore, yes... it is still possible the Pacers could win if they lost tonight.

    If that would happen I'd be checking the temperature in Hell though....



    Until somebody wins 4 games I'll be following this series and rooting for the Pacers.

    I think we'd all agree that winning Game 5 at home would hardly be mission impossible, and at that point the fact that the series was once 3-1 would be instantly forgotten by everybody, replaced by the new fact that the Pacers are one step away from forcing Game 7.

    No, this is a must win. The Pacers don't have the veteran tenacity to come back from a 3-1 deficit to a team that is not up from luck, but from definitely playing better. Reading some quotes from the star, I worry that the Pacers don't find the game as urgent. I don't understand why every playoff games isn't played with absolute urgency on every position and why Tinsley doesn't sprint downcourt everytime like he did at the end of the game taking that timeout.

    We lose tonight, we're essentially finished. I think what will happen is:

    A) We win tonight, and games 5-7 all happen and are very close, and I think we just might pull out 5, lose 6, and 7 is 50/50.

    B) We lose tonight, win "big" (ie more than 5 points) in game 5, then have game 6 be like game 3.

    Even if we lose tonight, I still expect the series to go seven games.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I would be quite pessimistic if we were to go down 3-1, but with 2 possible home games in our back pocket, I can't give up hope.

    NJ won 3 straight against Detroit, so IMO we could as well.

    However, we've yet to lose 3 straight all year long. If we do, which would be the case if we lost tonight, I don't believe we have the mental fortitude to overcome it.

    Care to expand on this? I worry about the same thing but I'd like to hear why you said this.

    I love your new sig line, btw. That's funny.

    I personally think that whichever team wins tonight's game will win the series.

    That's seems pretty obvious if Detroit wins.

    But even though the Pacers would be 2-2 with a win tonight, I think pulling even and having 2 of the following 3 at home will put us over the hump.

    Pistons fans may not see it that way, but I believe tonight's game is a MUST win game for BOTH teams.

    I agree that whoever wins today wins the series.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    well, how's this for optimism chuck,
    If they do lose tonight and come back and win the series, they will definately beat the Lakers/Twolves!

    It would be hard, but considering 2 of those 3 games will be in Indy meaning likely wins, all we'll have to do is protect homecourt and win the game in Detroit. Very possible. But why even take the chance, just win the damn game tonight!

    losing tonight means little, the same fact remains, we need to win one in Detroit, whether it is 4 or 6 is unimportant.
