The Pacers should not beat the Pistons just for the good of the Eastern Conference. It would be a battle for the Pacers to beat the Lakers already. To throw in an injured JO and Tinsley and other inexperienced players is ludicrous. They would have no chance. You can argue and what not. But it's honest. Granted it would give them some experience for next year; but I am sick of people calling the Eastern Conference the JV league and the Pistons have the better chance of winning it all.
