    No Wilcox for them tonight. He sprained an ankle last night in the 1st QTR and didn't travel with the team, which makes their front line even thinner. Just keep Durant in check and don't let anyone else go off and this should be a win. Hopefully Danny gets his shot back and if not continue to drive and get the calls. If I'm online later I'll post the stream for the game if someone else doesn't already.

    This is the type of game that we need to consistently win. Winning the Boston game loses something when you lose to teams like OKC at home. I hope we come out tonight with a lot of energy and put these guys away. Go Pacers!!!

    This game isn't on League Pass. Anyone know why?

    It's on FSI so hopefully they won't black it out, but they probably will.

    So this game wont be NBA League Pass Broadband? This is the final Pacer game under the free preview, too.

    It shows as scheduled on Broadband also.


    These OKC guys are going to be hungry. We can't coast on this.

    Also, since they passed on OkeyDokes, I don't care what they call themselves.

    Oh, weird. I wonder why it's not on the schedule but if it's on the League Pass then it's all good. What channel? 751?

    In regards to the poll, I lived in OKC for 15 years and a more appropriate name might be OKC Tornados but I understand why that was not used.

    I have no problem with OKC Thunder.

    As for the game tonight, GO PACERS !!!!!

    I would rather be the hammer than the nail

    Thunder is fine. It's not our team so it really doesn't matter that much to me.

    I kinda like Thunder but to me it's just kinda bland. I voted Moderately Agree.

    I don't think it's any worse than probably 60% of the league's nicknames, it'll just take some getting use to. The league is full of generic team names...

    Hornets
    Hawks
    Bobcats
    Bulls
    Warriors
    Rockets
    Kings
    Wizards
    etc.

    Any of these names could just as easily pass for the team name of your local 6th grade basketball team. I've even seen a few Pacers, which I consider to be a unique name, although I think they most likely copied it from us.

    My hometown Davenport, Iowa had a CBA team the Quad City Thunder... led by Jeff McIniss we won a few titles, before he made himself into a real NBA player. Love the name.

    okay for me I just want to say that the NBA makes mascots generic, thus having 6 grade boys team be the bulls and Hornets.

    Sure they don't have the "flare" as Celtics or Magic. But at least their fans (casual) don't say" What the heck is a Pacer?" Or "Are there a lot of Lakes in LA?" IF they kept the Super Sonics their fans would have both of those questions going through their mind.

    BTW Roy should have some minutes tonight. I don't see Petro drawing fouls. Or anyone besides Durant getting into the lane off of penetration.

    I really want to win this game. If this team can beat the non-playoff teams consistently and compete with the playoff teams, we'll be in a great spot this year.

    That OKC announcer was uncomfortably close to Robby Swift. Methinks they don't know how to use the zoom button.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Hibbert and Jeff Green out there. It's been a while since they were on the floor together.
