    Agreed. I honestly believe the only team in the way of a championship for the Pacers this year is OKC and I'm fairly rational most of the time. I don't think many teams have the athleticism to really attack the two weaknesses on this team. They can attack both. They can play pressure defense on the ball handlers and have the athleticism to attack our front court by getting out on the break. They terrify me.

    Man, I am loving Kobe in his old age. He's become less serious, respectful, funny, and I love that he's been visiting classes at colleges. He clearly sees he won't be in basketball all his life and is starting to explore other options. It's cool to see. I always figured he'd be one of those dudes that goes out ungracefully, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Here is a quick look at the remainder SOS for all the NBA teams in an easy on the eyes graph.

    The good news is that the Pacers stay the same while the Heats schedule is more difficult.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I think the bottom line is that the Pacers and Miami should be penalized 10 games each for playing in the East.

    Why do the rockets have a three man announcing team? Confusing.

    Worst case scenario and a nightmare matchup for me. I would give us few chances against them. Thing is, I just can't see a team from the West eliminating them in a 7 game series.

    The best hope I have for a potential series against OKC is our coaching staff. I want to see what they do with plenty of time to plan and adjust for defending the Thunder over 4-7 games before I panic. But it is a series that, while I'd be wildly happy that we were even in the Finals, would still make me very nervous.

    I'd agree with this. I'm just afraid we'll have a grueling 6 or 7 game series with the Heat. If we manage to come out of that fray, we may not have the legs to keep up with Durant and Westbrook and they might hit us early in the series with a two game deficit that we may not be able to overcome.

    Sort of like when the Colts finally beat the Pats to get to Super Bowl XLVI, and after that first kickoff where Hester took the ball to the house, you were like, "Oh *****".

    Gonna be a good night of basketball.

    But I expect the Heat to win, they match up too well against the Thunder without Westbrook. OKC wouldnt stand a chance in a 7 game series against Miami.

    Kevin Hart, Erin Heatherton lead players for NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

    I’m not sure of the exact number, but I believe Kevin Hart was in 258 movies last year. Maybe not “Gravity” but I think every other one.

    So I’m not sure how he has time, but the two-time reigning MVP will be back for the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, which takes place on Feb. 14, the Friday night of All-Star weekend in New Orleans.

    The NBA released the rosters and they include Erin Heatherton (Victoria’s Secret model), Nick Cannon (“America’s Got Talent” host), Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg (both of ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike”), Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Columbus Short (“Scandal”), Michael B. Jordan (“That Awkward Moment”), Terrence Jenkins (E! News), Kristen Ledlow (of NBA TV’s “Inside Stuff”), Stan Verrett (ESPN SportsCenter anchor), and Arne Duncan (U.S. Secretary of Education).

    Among the pros there will be three-time NBA Champion Bruce Bowen, plus WNBA stars Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock and Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky.

    ESPN’s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose will coach the teams. ESPN will televise the game beginning at 7 p.m. ET on Feb. 14.

    The NBA All-Star Weekend is Feb. 14-16 in New Orleans.

    Reggie and the bench is gonna have to play huge for OKC to have a chance tonight.

    I suspect Lebron going off tonight to prove a point to the MVP race, jmo.

    Most non Pacer game excitement so far this year for me.

    Just from the feel of this game OKC is going to break this game open in the 2nd half.

    They only have three players who can consistently score, someone is going to get points, if DeRozan gets 20 points in 1st quarter, DeRozan better than PG am I right.

    OKC beating Heat at their own game of small ball and spread out offense.

    Durant is just an amazing shooter.

    Just going to say, when you have two teams with both top 5 offense and defense, the better offense will win.

    I'm sure they were just leaving home to come to the game and saw Miami was down so they just stayed home.
