    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview Review:
    Jared Wade: Sadly, the Pacers Need a Valiant, Near-Miraculous Comeback

    Itís difficult to get too excited about a team that trailed the Washington Wizards by
    20 at half time. But it was a damn exciting finish. So we have to give these guys
    some credit for crawling their way back and executing on nearly every possession
    down the stretch to somehow scrape together an improbable 85-83 victory in DC.

    There was absolutely no energy in the first quarter. This extended to the, by my
    estimate, 6,000 people in attendance but thatís no excuse. The Pacers got run out
    of the building in the opening minutes, allowing the Wizards to convert their first
    7 shots, which came on 7 assists, as they piled up a 17-6 early lead. By the end
    of the first, that would be extended to a 34-18 margin.

    The Wizards offense fell off a cliff in the second quarter but it was little help for
    a still-embarrassing Pacers attack that managed just 13 points in the period. At
    the half, they were down by 20. Again, this was against the Washington
    Wizards.

    While such futility is pretty much inexcusable for a team that is billed as one that
    nobody will want to face in the playoffs (especially since they had the night before
    off), it did set the stage for some wonderful regular season theatrics.

    Behind the teamís most dynamic weapon, Indiana reverted to the team we saw
    demoralize the Clippers the other night. Danny Granger dropped 11 of his 16
    total points in the period. Roy Hibbert also started to realize he could have his
    way in the paint and started punishing Nene down low. The reserves checked in
    and things continued to roll. By continuing to thwart the Wizards sputtering
    offense and, finally, starting to score like they should against the Wizards, it was
    once again a game heading into the fourth.

    And early in the final period is when the bench unit was at its best. Everyone
    chipped in on the scoring load as the backups turned a 9-point deficit to 2. Coach
    Frank Vogel then went back to the guys with the bigger paychecks. Letís just say
    that was a good decision.

    David West re-entered the game after having headed to the locker room early in
    the third quarter with a dislocated left pinky finger. He promptly stuck a jumper
    then stepped into a role where he would do all the little things for the rest of the
    game. Shortly thereafter, he make an expert entry pass to a perfectly positioned
    Hibbert, who caught the ball in motion spinning to his left and dropped a hook
    shot over Nene as easily as taking a coxinha from a baby. Hibbert made two
    more moves that were just as seamless to ensure his team, which was
    unraveling a bit on the other end and letting the Wizards score, could remain
    within striking distance...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Junkyard Dog is probably our best basketball player alumnus of all-time, depending on how you feel about Dana Barros.

    Does any team in the NBA have more fun than the Phoenix Suns?

    This is the first game I'll get to watch in a while, so I hope we actually start, and finish well.

    Shame, though.
    I was really looking forward to watching Fesenko tonight.

    and here's hoping we pull in another home win.

    Our arena, their arena, Rucker park, it just doesn't matter. We're bigger, longer, younger, faster, and hungrier.

    I have a feeling that the "Sign Nash" bandwagon is going to gain a lot of steam tonight.

    Need to avoid a letdown tonight after the frantic rally last night.

    I think that going 2-1 (hopefully 3-0) on our second Back to back to back would be great for our confidence headed into the stretch.
