    The Pacers have had 0 true letdown games to inferior opponents this year, I feel they're due for one.

    The Bobcats game to me was sort of a letdown, though my opinion of the team is super sky high and that every east team besides Miami they should be able to beat by 10+ especially at home.
    "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."

    From the interview VNZ posted...

    Bird to Monteith: I told Frank a month before the season... Detroit's going to knock your *** off if you're not ready to play against them.

    Hand tough, Pacers!

    Theres not a team I hate losing to more than the Pistons. That being said, the Pacers had the weekend off to get in some good practice time while the Pistons lost an overtime heartbreaker last night. Lets hope this gets ugly and the Pacers get an emphatic win leading them into the big game in Miami on Wed.

    We always get our opponent's best shot, and I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit makes it a tough game or even takes a lead into halftime. But as been the case all season, we'll go full throttle in the second half and put the game away.

    Crowd does seem pretty weak. I think it will fill in.

    Is it pretty empty? I was thinking it looked pretty full for a Monday night vs Pistons.

    Look at the replays from the Palace last night and that should make you feel a little better about attendance... wow

    They had a really strong crowd a couple Monday's ago, so I figured we would see 16,500 plus.

    We should go to West every single possession until they find a way to stop him. Dude is scoring at will down there.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    We have given up 3 offensive boards so far. We have to clean this up.

    It would be okay by me if the Pacers decided they wanted to rebound a few of the defensive boards.
