Reeeal niiiice to see the Pacers throw it back to silence all the haters who were predicting a loss tonight. Granger's got some hops, man, his fastbreak dunks are awesome. I love the positive energy all the guys have now that we're winning. Note to readers: You are only allowed to post if you have something POSITIVE to say. Especially after tonights game.

I had my doubts about the big trade, but the proof is in the pudding. The chemistry and positive outlook appear to have improved. Perhaps "old man" leadership is the key. This team has been missing that since Reggie retired.

It's great to see them fight to the end and be a TEAM! It all feels better and it's fun to watch again! What a GREAT game last night! GO PACERS!

Don't look now, but the team has won 5 of 6. Noticed that Harrington threw up another brick job in Philly last night.

On our side, Dunleavy's box score wasn't impressive, but he played 40 minutes, and I did notice he hit some key free throws down the stretch. To me, passing the ball and playing defense is just as important as a good line score.

Nice to have a TEAM together that can play a little defense.

Again, the trade was addition by subtraction, and it gave Granger the opportunity to play some major minutes. You can tell he has the presence of a leader, but those traits were not going to come out with action Jackson running around the court.

I do agree with some that post on here that Tinsley should go, but Armstrong can't play 40 minutes per night, and who can we realistically trade for who will fit into the salary cap, and perform better than Tinsley does right now?

Darrell does it again! Is a Reggie comeback in the stars?

Is Darrell destined to be the next Avery Johnson? I can see him as the next great NBA head coach somewhere down the road.

Wow, if the Pacers keep this up I might have to actually start watching the NBA again. Nah probably not, but good job Pacers!

This was a really enjoyable game to attend. Thanks to the Pacers for the personnel changes that have brought a lift to the team.

After the shafting that we got in the 2000 Finals (two bad calls turned two games into Laker wins - remember?), it always feels good to see LA get popped in the mouth.

Absolutely! As I have been saying for months he should be player coach right now for the Pacers. He will win with desire and will early as a coach, and develop into tact and technique. Pacers should extend his contract now, and slip Rick upstairs.

One man's opinion.

The funny thing is as erratic as the Pacers have played all year, they are only 2.5 game out of the best record in the East. Now the chances of an Eastern team winning the Championship is about the same as Rex Grossman passing for 500 yards and 5 touchdowns on Sunday, but if the Pacers can find a way to get there, it will definitely give the team's image a much needed boost.

Nice win. Frankly, I expected them to win this game. The Pacers are a very good team IMO. Perhaps a notch below Dallas, Phoenix and San Antonio, but they can string some good wins together and you never know. They will contend to win the East.

I hope Murphy maintains his physical play when he returns with the mask. He'll definitely be missed tonight. The Pacers need to be sharp tonight to get a win. I expect they will.

Harrison has a bad shoulder but is expected back tonight.

Nice win. I am veeeeery excited about what Ike Diogu showed last night. In the future, I can see him as our main post player/rebounder.

Lets not forget the Lakers are pretty bad on the road...especially against sub .500 teams.
