This was one of the better games of the year. A great comeback. Now it's time to get back at Houston.
Does anyone doubt at all that as long as he's healthy, Bynum is gonna own Miami's bigs if we play them?
Pacers Pride on display in the 2nd half tonite!
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
I made mention of this obviously elsewhere but I gotta hammer it because it could be a concise synopsis of the remedy for this teams offensive innefficiences. This team has to remember in essesne to intiate the offense quickly.
obviously Wooden said it best. Be Quick and man it made a difference.. making quick passes and as well as the decision making. If the teams plays like that and hungry a BANNER may be more reasonable to expect than even the most optimistic of pacer fans.
our offense has been just way to laizzee fairre for the past 2.5 seasons or so.
I love beating Detroit. Great win tonite.
Yeah, 8-1 there would be an unreal stretch. I'd be pretty happy with 5-4 there honestly as long as we split with Chicago and had good showing with Miami and SA. 6-3 there I would consider a great success.
I would be ecstatic to go 6-3 that stretch. With splitting Miami and winning against SA
Well Bulls in Indy? I think because they can't score, and because they'll be on the road. We win that game. The Bulls have come back down to earth recently. A bit. We beat Memphis earlier in the season I think we can win at Memphis. Memphis offensively has it's issues. We just need to lock them down defensively. I will admit after the Memphis game, one day of rest then going into Chicago to play the Bulls again will be tough. They'll want revenge, and want to send a message. Plus we might look past that one at Miami two days later.
The way Miami is playing, plus being on the road, plus we don't know if they'll be resting Wade by then. It all depends on how the standings are by then. But right now, we're 5 ahead in the win column, and 2 ahead in the loss column. We own Washington this season. Nene won't be playing, I think that favors us. Cleveland is still Cleveland. Spurs, again it depends on who's playing. Pop could be resting his troops by then. Pistons at Indy is a win. Especially after tonight. At Toronto will be tough, but we held them to 79 the last time we played them. I do agree if we don't bring it every game we could lose. But if we win eight of these 9, we'll have all the detractors off our backs for atleast a week.
Bulls are 7-3 in their last 10. How is that coming back down to earth?
True, but at least Memphis doesn't have super-scoring guards we have to chase around screens all day. No Steph Curry, Melo/ Harden type player on their roster. As long as we bring the D, we should win.
The most important game in that stretch is the Miami one. It would be great if we could get the tiebreaker since it is going to be so close. After head-to-head it's conference win-loss that is the tiebreaker, and we are 5 games in-conference on Miami. A win against Miami might just win us the tiebreaker.
The Bulls just do not match up well against us. They play hard for Thibs, but they have no good scoring options. Even with our defense not being lock down anymore I do not think they will be as tough as some other teams coming up like Memphis or San Antonio.
This space for rent.

Conley is also averaging 17.1 PPG, Courtney Lee has played great for them and he is averaging 12.4 PPG and they always have Gasol, Z-Bo and Miller's shooting.
We can certainly win if we play our game but it will be tough. It is a tough stretch indeed.
