I can say this, back in the Miller days, Indy fans would never allow this.
MSA/CFH were rocking with Pacers fans kind of like today's Thunder crowd.
Thursday night's crowd was nice and seemed like the OKC crowd.
There were clearly more Pacers fans, but today it might be tough to say there were more Pacers fans based on how it looked and sounded on TV.
2011 Bulls fans vs 2004 Pistons fans. Which do you guys think are worse?
pretty sure pacers saw the lesser half of the bulls fans. the young, cool, bandwagoners. the better half probably are STH and don't need to drive to indy to see the game.
did see lots of bulls fans that didn't seem to be hardcore basketball fans. only here to see and be seen as it were.
We're on the right track and if we add some decent pieces with our cap space we can be a solid contending team.
Like many, I'm hoping for Eric Gordon. He'd be a solid leader and the home fans would love to see him leading the Pacers to the victories along with Paul who looks to be promising.
Hopefully we'll be making the playoffs every year up to that point.
The fanbase seems to be building back up after falling apart since last making the playoffs.
Hopefully the Pacers can bring back the winning basketball to fully prove they are back.
It looks good now and everyone is excited for the future.
The 2004 Pistons fans were as badass as the players.
I've always felt Pacers fans/Indiana fans have always been respectable.
This season, I've noticed the Bulls fans have invaded every team's arena in the Central Division's. Especially the Bradley Center.
Maybe not as much in the Quicken Loans Arena since they still had a bunch of fans on bandwagon, but probably next season since that fanbase will probably level out.

Yeah and I think if they would've had as good a year as they did this year, it wouldn't be as bad.
For whatever reason they fell apart and don't really look like they will recover.
Bogut is not healthy and that elbow injury looks like it can put him in jeopardy and Jennings has become very much a ballhog. They have no offensive chemistry. They have bad contracts and they are for older players.
We're going to hopefully cause havac and competition in the East for years to come.
Eh, no big deal. I can barely post let alone create anything like that. I would say Reggie has someone that does that for him and it is a marketing tool setup by TNT.
Bottom line....Reggie stated with words what his feelings are.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
I've never seen so many Bulls fans in one place. It was disgusting. I guessed that there were maybe 25% Bulls Thursday night, biut today, I think it was 55% or maybe even 60%. It was bad.
I so wanted the pacers to take their 14 point lead to 20 or so with 2 or 3 minutes left so all the Bulls fans would leave early.
If I had tons of money I would buy every available ticket for game #6 and give them to pacers fans only
The number of Bulls fans today really bothered me

I am so glad i didn't see them tipping trash cans outside Conseco, I might have lost my temper and done something I shouldn't have. My tolerance for the Bulls fans was at a realy low level today
buck is right. Over half were Bulls fans. There were more of their fans in the lower bowl ours. Plus ours were so much quieter throughout the game. Cell phones and Twitter need to wait till down times. The suits need to cheer.
Our casual fans better get on board. Or Chicago will have another home game come Thursday.
The brightside of them selling out the game was that all their money went to PS&E.
I don't understand it. If I lived in Indy I would find a way to make it to all these games. I attended game 3, but had to drive three hours for it. These people live right there and won't go out. It's sickening.
Bogut had his elbow scoped when the Bucks were offically eliminated from the playoffs. They took out a jar full of bone fragments. He expects to be working out by the end of May.
