Yeaaah clinching! And all that. But also...
I'm happy we're back in the playoffs (which is pretty much guaranteed at this point).
I just hope we win at least 2 of our last upcoming games just to say we've improved since not making the playoffs.
There's no doubt we still need a lot of work and are pretty much in because the East is so weak.
As far as making the playoffs this year, it's something this young team, Indy and the fans really need just to get the feel of what it's like to be in the playoffs.
The players have to realize that it's do or die in the postseason and there's no slacking off or act like wimps. We have the capability to win at least one game and matchup well with the Bulls if this team keeps their head on straight and is motivated.
Something to keep in mind - The Magic are locked into the 4 seed. So let's hope they don't choose to give their young guys a ton of minutes against Charlotte.
They should however feel free to play their young guys against the Pacers the last game of the season....
I think the good Indy is nothing more than when the whole team gets on a roll at the same time. Remember when we hit 20 of 21 shots against Denver in the 3rd quarter? That kind of shooting will take any team down.
As for beating Washington tonight a lot of you sound like it's a foregone conclusion. I beg to differ though, the Wiz are on a roll having won three in a row. I did predict the Pacers to win in the guess the score contest though.
Like I've said elsewhere, it wouldn't surprise me if the Pacers lose these last four games and still make the playoffs, and then upset Chicago in the first round. That's just the way this team is, you can never count on them to win or lose.
The Magic don't seem to care tonight. Not really playing any defense. Bobcats will live to see another day
And just as I type that the Magic go on an 8-0 run to get within 2, so what do I know?
let us rest our starters for the last 3 games! damn it!
WE MADE IT.
Everytime I see the title of the thread I think of...
