We're still the 7th best team in the entire league!
28 minutes from Paul George. Ridiculous
Also, we've beat them like 10 or 11 times in a row....so they were bound to beat us eventually.
A.J. Price to rise like a phoenix once again?
I love my Pacers as much as anyone here. Todays loss has to be a bit concerning, we should have handed them their butts. But it was our butts that were handed. If it were a back to back, ok fatigue comes into play, but no we had a day off between games. We played well until mid 3rd quarter to the end of the game. I feel a real vocal leader in the locker room to keep these lapses from happening so often is needed.
I'm not perfect and neither are you.

So disappointing. How could they come out and lay an egg like that? This should answer Kravit's calling out the fans write up. This is why fans won't buy into it yet. We're a very impatient breed Pacer fans are.
Alright! 7th best! And it only took 7 years!
BTW, why is that fat ******* walking like a fruit cake in that GIF? Is that supposed to make me feel better? Nobody wants to be that guy.
Sometimes the haters have a point and you are just in denial.
Yes it sucks but as other people has pointed out it happens and it will again clips hornets,bucks and heat sure theirs more
********. Fans won't buy into it because they don't want to.
I'll say it once again.
There are numerous fans around world that watch the Pacers night in and night out. A lot of them post on this site. There are the ChinaPacers. There are those Aussie guys. I'm from Greece. Johanvil is from Greece. Frostwolf is from the UK. Yoadknux is Israeli. We have this Dutch guy and we also have 1-2 guys from Turkey.
Did the team needed to do anything for us to follow them? No. We just wanted to do so and we did. It's the same with all those die-hards that post in this forum and several other Pacer boards.
The people who do not support the team yet simply don't want to support it. All they have to do is admit it and quit those excuses.
Hmm, let's see. We have Roy who buys season tickets for Area 55. We have Pacers G2 Zone which gives tickets to 5 games, a G2 Zone T-Shirt, a Gatorade towel and access to a special event with the Georges for $135 (basically $27 per game).
So, is it really about money? Indiana is not even a poor state. Sure, it's not among the richest states in the US but it never was a poor one either. It always ranked in the middle of the road.
And frankly even if it was about money. I think that you have heard about the economic crisis in Europe and particularly in Greece. Our minimum wages are going to be around 300 Euros / month. We have a massive unemployment rate. Yet, people will still support the teams they love. If they have to, they will even break in to the stadium but they will be there and support their team.
So, let's put it another way. The "fans" that do not even care about the team right now are not ever going to care.
People said the same crap about the Colts years ago. They were wrong then, and they are wrong now.
Yes, I need a hug. Very funny.
BTW, the Davis boys weren't brothers. And this team is just a pretty good team with a lot of holes yet to fill. That is all any of the "haters" have said. It's called reality.

True. I've never been to the States, in general. In fact, I've only been Europe. But I do know that when the locals want to support their team they are going to do it no matter how the team plays and no matter if they can even afford it.
Hell, in my country fans of a certain amateur football club even organized a party when their teams got demoted and partied along with the players, the training staff and the locals all night long.
And who exactly disagrees with this?
We don't have illusions of grandeur. We don't believe that we are contenders or anything. We believe that we are a good team that is going to battle in the first round and has decent chances of getting to the second round.
That's what most of us are saying (at least, that's what I think). If the locals only want to support title contenders then let them support the Colts or the Bulls. Chicago is not very far
You beat a team ten times in a row, what do you expect to eventually happen?
It was a bad night, forget it and move on to the next one.
