The Pacers win the battle of two irrelevant teams in the Mediocrity Bowl.

We need to forget O'Neal and move on w/ out him. He does the team more harm than good. No matter if he is playing or not it is always about him. We are better off w/ out him...

Great win yesterday...Defense was not as good as I would have liked, but the offense was running smoothly. They moved the ball better yesterday than they have all season. They have an easy part of their schedule this week and I think we can pick up some big wins...Keep it up Pacers!!

I hope the Pacers can make a run and win some games. Larry Bird does have a plan and did a wonderful job in free agency this summer. Signing Kareem Rush for a one year 850 K deal was a great move.

Now Larry has to be smart and re-sign him...

Story line should read " No O'Neil, Tensleys only takes 3 shots Pacers win big" The Pacers are a better team without the both of them, all the fans know this ,how come the Pacers management doesn't see this.

Would you expect anything less from a person who can't even spell either of their names correctly?

I could tell the article was written by someone other than Mike Wells because it didn't have a negative spin.

Despite how horrific this team has been this year, they are only a few games under .500. In a weak Eastern Conference field, they could still contend for the playoffs.

If JO's knee heals well enough to pass a physical, and Bird can pull the trigger on a trade for some good talent, they might actually be in pretty good shape coming down the stretch.

Hope your not writing "The Storyline" because you need to learn to spell first..........

Fun game to watch - when the offense was in gear it worked. Tinsley is okay when he distrubtes and does not shoot- he made some great passes and looked for the open man- this kind of offense will make you tired and lead to mistakes but if you put up the points you can win. PACER'S balance problem is a good big man to stop the inside play and rebounding by the other team.
Alawys a risk with small ball. Good win and puts the pacers in an eight spot tie with the nets.

I like small ball and they do have a big man in Jeff Foster. He is the moust unselfish player on the team. I like JT and KR out front with JF on the inside and MD and DG on the wings. Keep up the good work and be patient. All good things come to those that wait!

Keep shooting those threes..The Pacers are actually fun to watch regardless of the win/loss. We are a good draft away from having a very solid team. Trade JO and try to a good pick or two and we will have a team.

I have to agree, keep up the small ball up tempo in your face ball. Keep the core group, and trade Jermaine and see what we can get with the one legged all star. Get some nice drafts next season via trades and we'll have a clean entertaining team. An aggressive Offense juggernault and enough defense to win games. Murphy may have to go as well. But build around Dunleavy, Granger, Rush, Williams, Diogu....
What would be real cool is to get Eric Gordon or a Tyler Hansborogh, someone that will take it hard to the rack....Ole Larry will come around eventually. I remember back when Walsh had tough times and its a learning curve and bad judgement.
