    The way the Pistons have been playing, this should be an easy Pacers win.

    To answer the question: Pistons. And it's not even close. I like some of their players (mainly Prince and Billups when he was there), but I would never cheer for them.

    I really do not have any ill feelings for the Detroit team but their fans are obnoxious.

    Sorry Kstat, nothing against you but the Pistons fans are bad. If the Pacer fans acted like the Piston fans, I would really consider changing and rooting for another team

    Considering I have been a Pacer fan since their inception (ABA), that says a lot but also I am old and cranky.

    I would rather be the hammer than the nail

    Never in this matchup. Now throw salt over your shoulder, turn around 3 times and spit. Stop inviting bad karma.

    Rivalries have more to do with players than jersies. I don't hate any of the above teams as they currently stand. The Granger/Lebron thing that seems to be brewing has rivalry potential though.

    if curry throws the small-balls lineup out there again, pacers win by 18.

    If he comes to his senses and sends out Dice at PF, maybe we have a shot.

    By the way, the players who have always been thorns in our side are still there. Rasheed Wallace eats us alive, and so does T Prince.

    Michael Curry is sticking to the same small-balls lineup that got killed by the Wizards.

    Looking forward to seeing how many points Rip gives up to Danny Granger. Not really Rip's fault. He's only giving up 30 or 40 lbs....

    Also going to be cute to watch out best perimeter defender get stuck on Troy Murphy.

    Pacers by 18. It's been decided.

    Pistons go small. We have real height advantage. We should dominate the boards

    I don't even want the Pacers to win anymore. I just want us to tank and draft Patrick Patterson or Gani Lawal.

    The Pacers might also go small ball, which I think they should.

    It remains to be seen if he'll actually matchup against the long, lean and agile Tayshaun Prince or if O'Brien will choose to go small and move Murphy to center. The Prince matchup has vexed the Pacers for years.
    I guess this would mean our lineup would be:

    Ford
    Jack
    Daniels
    Granger
    Murphy

    I dont mind this, but having Murphy on Sheed is going to be horrible
