Dec 12, 2007 Read more: The Indianapolis Star 39
They had rallied for an impressive victory in Orlando on Friday with a late defensive surge that seemed to establish a formula for future success. Read more

"Jamaal Tinsley finished with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting, but said the weekend incident in which shots were fired at a car in which he was riding had not been a distraction."
Right.

I watched the first quarter and all I saw was players going through the motiions and no energy. I knew then that this game would be lost. This team will not challenge until they learn they must be consistent with all phases of the game for 48 minutes and all of the games scheduled. I was very disappointed.

I thought the outcome was a forgone conclusion...headline could have been written yesterday: "JO Plays-Pacers Loose".

If you watched any of the game you would have seen that JO wasn't the problem. So don't comment on these boards if you don't know what is going on

Don't tell me the savior of Pacer basketball who visits dens of sin saving souls, couldn’t pull this one out? And to hear our new “stern” coach you would think the Pacer savior is up for the team citizenship of the year award. O'Brien said Tinsley didn't do anything wrong or break any team rules? Could it be because the team doesn't have any rules? If O’Brien has children they must have had a fun filled childhood of no discipline.

And now the NBA has decided not to punish Thomas or the Knicks for sexual harassment. And NBA and Pacers officials wonder why attendance is down and falling? The NBA is a league out of control and the Pacers have fallen in goosing stepping behind the commissioner.

Since we are paying for Lucas Stadium perhaps we could throw in a few dollars to help the Pacers move out of Indianapolis.

A week ago on the comments everybody was loving the Pacers and how good they were playing...back off the bandwagon and bring on the negativity! Indiana has the most fair weathered fans in the world!! Just because Jamaal got shot at for making a stupid decision doesn't mean everybody now needs to get down on the rest of the team. Grow up and support your team...like I'm sure all of you did 6 years ago when the Colts sucked.

Actually he is right. When I play you can go to Vegas baby and bet that we have a great chance of losing any game. If fact, its proven that when I play we lose. Sure I have a good game once in a while but to throw a white race bomb comment is uncalled for homie g snoop dog peace in da streets playa hata. Instead of turning into a race blog war maybe you should realize I am not that good, I am always injured, I am overpaid, and I have an ego that is longer and taller than the great wall of China. Check ya self playa hata, and don't let the loses discourage ya too much. I know I suck. deuces

It should have been
"Tinsley stays out all night, JO plays, Pacers lose". Looks like Tinsley's brother can't shoot any better than he can!!! The only thing that will change this is empty seats at Conseco.

Disappointing loss for sure. They didn't show up. The off-the-court incedent was certainly a distraction...Jamal wasn't near the same and was forcing everything in the second quarter.

Now, O'Neal was terrific on both ends (AGAIN). He and Dunleavy carried the team. When they went out of the game the Cavs made huge runs. Murphy played pretty well too. But, we definitely missed some depth at Center. We missed Foster...and we're missing Harrison and Diogu. We lost because our perimeter defense sucked. Tinsley needs to focus on D. Granger was horrible...he has a game like this about every 4th game.

They need to move on and take out Chicago tonight. It's important to win these division games. Coach will have them ready to play.

I'm pretty sure they were having to black out games on t.v b/c nobody would come to their games...yep, they were 6-10 in 2001. But dont worry, everybody's on the bandwagon now

Perhaps we could work a trade for an NHL team. Everyone could be happy and we could still call them The Racers!! No, this isn't about race, I just like NHL hockey.

Think Washington will loan us the "Bullets" name since they are no longer using it?
