    Hard to believe the Magic are 16-4. I thought they'd be good, but not THAT good.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Honestly, IMO they really aren't. Look at their schedule. It's softer than the Celtics!

    For example:

    Although they've just completed their 1st WCRT, they've had very little travel time from one destination to the next even on back-to-back games, and in most cases they've had at least 1 day's rest in between games. Furthermore, they've only faced five truly tough opponents all season - Celtics, Pistons, Cavs, Suns and Spurs - with the Lakers, Hornets and maybe the Warriors making things just a tad interesting to say the least.

    So, no I don't think they've really been challenged all that much. Not saying it's been a cake walk - both teams still have to show up and play - but it's just been easier for the Magic to get there 16-4 record because of the team's they've faced AND the way their schedule is laid out. Line up the Pacers' schedule alongside the Magic's (or even compare the schedules of the Celtics and Magic for that matter) and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    (Yeah, I'm alittle bias, but I'm also a realist.)

    Dwight Howard by himself is probably better than about a dozen teams in the league right now, and he's just about to turn 22. That does not bode well for the rest of the eastern conference.

    And if you collapse inside too much on Howard, watch out for Keith Bogans shooting the 3. He really only does one thing, but he does it well.

    It's an extremely dominant Howard (the best bigman in the game right now) and a bunch of 3 point shooters. More impressive than being 16-4 is being 11-2 on the road. There are a lot of things you can fake, but being dominant on the road isn't one of them. They are a tough team.

    Dont mean to get off topic, but what is Tinsley looking at in that picture? Hes certainly not looking at the camera.


    Im surprised at how well the Magic have been playing too. Dwight is becoming more and more of a beast. His offensive game has come along quite nicely which was the next step for him.

    With that being said, i do think we will win. JO will have a big game and so will Dwight. I think Danny will bounce back tonight. We have had a nice break since the PHX game so the guys should be well rested and ready to go. I just feel good about this game. I wish i could see it.

    Van Gundy is doing with Dwight, what he couldnt do with Shaq in Miami.

    Van Gundy was putting together a great run with Shaq when Riley decided that he needed the spotlight back. It was a low move, even if it did pay dividends.

    It makes you wonder what Stan "Don't call me Ron Jeremy" Van Gundy could have done if he was the Pacers coach.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    We really should exploit that JO-Lewis matchup; JO should easily take him, that is, unless D12 is put on JO.

    This will be a good game to judge how much better Dwight really is. Jeff always plays him extremely well.

    If Harrison doesn't play I think we'll see an inspired Troy Murphy have a great game to try and get consistent minutes back.

    I'm fascinated to see what happens. There is no reason for us to beat this team. They have far too many good shooters. I think JO and Jeff Foster are the key to this game. JO should have a mismatch this entire game. No reason whatsoever to shoot jumpshots or not have 20+. Jeff needs to try to keep Howard off the boards. So, so difficult but if there's anyone who can, it's Jeff.
