    Be physical.
    Run them off the three point line.
    Feast down low. Do not make it a jump shooting contest.
    Make them foul you.
    Play with lots of energy. Stifle their runs.

    Push them hard they have to be more worn down. And just play our game.

    Coaches of the Month battling it out tonight: Vogel vs Stotts.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Could be a long night if Aldridge is shooting as well from mid range tonight as he did the last time we went to Portland.

    I hate 10 o clock start times...will only be able to watch the first half...and then follow part of the second half on my phone on the way to work... Then I'm not gonna find out who won if its close till like 5-6 AM. Lame.

    This is one of the few starting lineups that can keep up with ours. It is important our bench plays well to win this game.

    I'm interested to see who Paul George will be guarding, it could be the difference between a win and a loss.

    I have no clue what that means....but I think that avoidingtheclowns is going way beyond the call of duty when it comes to making these Game Day threads more interesting.

    Disgraceful to have a 7pm local time tipoff?

    Easier to stay up for a 1AM game than the 4AM start, n'est pas? Too late to stay up and too early to get up.

    I purposely am pulling an all-nighter for this game. I got a final exam tomorrow. The Pacers game will be my study break. I hope this will be worth the red-eye!

    No video feed for NBA LP Broadband??? Audio only. And yet it's televised by both markets. I don't get it.

    Rolling my eyes at the time complaints, as probably most of the other overseas fans are too. I had to wake up at 3:30 AM for the Clippers game. I can't imagine what our European friends go through to follow their favorite team.

    Go Pacers!
