Mike D. success is because of this reason and this reason only. A point guard that is healthy enough to play.(Travis D.) Even though this team has had a little success for the past two games. This team would be better off missing the play-offs this year.(no chance to win it all anyway).
And get a top 15 player. Namely a point guard that can score and push the ball. Jamal T. maybe really hurt, and if so the Pacers need to move on and address that need in the draft. Each year it is the same thing. Jamal is on the IR list.
Travis D. is getting better with each passing game and deserves to start. But bringing in another Point Guard would equal one thing. Mike D. for 40 plus every night.

It looks like Daniels, Williams, and Tinsley made it through the night without being arrested, which is a good sign. Also, could someone pass the nachos to Harrison, he has the munchies.

Way to go PACERS! By Jove I do believe you have got it down now. Great job. I am proud of you all.

Danny, everything will be alright. I don't know why you have your dandruff up, but cool it dude, you need to get that chip off your shoulder. Just continue to play good ball.

God bless the Indiana Pacers! Wednesday night, another game, Go, Fight, Win!

I don't think they want to win, they wouldn't have anything to complain of then. They need to get a life, and leave the Indiana Pacers alone. Go to the games, cheer for the team and really get behind them. Quit all this name calling, little kids act this way, and grow up.

It just proves to me, the so called stars haven't played in two months or longer, but now the team is winning. So, who are the REAL STARS?

We have a great starting team as well as a great bench to go to. They ALL play hard and most importantly, they ALL play together as a team. It is NOT a one man show that doesn't win games.

Jim, I think you have finally getting team to play together and it is showing. Keep up the good job. Win or lose, they are doing better than I have seen them, since Reggie has left, I do believe.

I completely understand where you're coming from, but the guys who are getting all the minutes for us now are good guys. Dunleavy, Granger, Foster, Rush, Murphy and Diener are really starting to come together and build chemistry, but no one notices because all of the bad PR. I know the Pacers have brought this upon themselves, but just remember that it's not the whole team and some of these guys do deserve our support.

I ABSOLUTELY agree. I went to the game last night. I am one of the people who had said I would not go to a game until I could be proud of the team again. I took advice from someone who had posted in a comment a few weeks back and went to a game. The guys that are playing are great! They are fun to watch and I am happy to say they are good guys. We especially enjoyed watching Diener. I can cheer for the team that was on the floor last night, and I am looking forward to going to another game. I just hope the players that played last night continue to be the ones that get minutes on the court.

I attended this game, the first time in several years at a Pacer game, and was pleasantly surprised.
The Pacers play an attractive style of ball that even an amateur such as myself can see is well practiced and effective with the right players. This is a credit to the coach who has not had a lot of breaks with the behaviors of this team. Credit him with getting the players he has into a good looking team approach that spreads the floor and allows attacks on the basket from every position on the court.

I absolutely love the intensity that Graham brings into the game. I would not be opposed to him getting more minutes at all.

Ike does not fit into our uptempo offense. He is a post up kind of player and those guys bog down our offense (when it is being ran correctly like last night) and doesn't seem to graps O'Brien's defensive philosophy. I know, I know the rest of the team doesn't understand it either, but nonetheless he doesn't fit our scheme. I know he's talented, but I wouldn't expect him to be on the roster next season if we are still under Coach O'Brien.

"The victory moved the Pacers (24-36) into 10th place in the Eastern Conference, 21/2 games back of the eighth and final playoff spot."

so why is it that everyone and there mother on this board keeps saying the pacers arent going to make the playoffs, give up and go for the lottery pick????? 2 1/2 games behind the 8th spot has and can be done.... i can see being 10 games down....even if we lose the next three games, yes we would still have a chance.... enough of the BS talk and running your mouth, when you could sit back and watch what happens. you never know...
