Another JO-less win for the Pace. Good job. Keep it up. JO, keep sitting.

Maybe the Pacers ought to be offering JO to the Bulls? Heinrich or Ben Gordon, anyone?

What a horrible job of officiating. Harrison swings and misses and gets called for the foul. Anthony swings and takes out Harrison's arms and NO foul called. Was it just me or did we start losing the lead and mometum due to one sided Refs? The number of offensive fouls against us was bizzare. I have DVR and I rewatched it and all I can say I hope this film is turned into the league for review because it almost cost us a game. Think the refs had money on this game? LOL

anybody check the Vegas odds? Maybe the Pacers weren't supposed to win. This league is so bogus!

It's time that the NBA institute a coaches challenge system like the one in the NFL.
They can't get the calls right everytime. And bad officiating can easily cost a team a win when the game is close.
Time for Czar Stern to get off this golden throne and do something about it.

You got into a Pacer game deep enough to scream at the TV?

I usually reserve that for Colts or IU games.

I totally agree! During the first half, the bad calls were going both ways. But after half time, it drastically went down hill. It was somewhat odd in the discrepancy of foul calls, and the last [BOGUS] foul on a three-point shot w/ less than five seconds left ... c'mon!!
Oh well, way to go Blue and Gold! Keep pullin in W's! Last nite's game, while aggravating, was actually FUN to watch!!

I cant believe the Pacers are better without JO, its weird how an supposed all star makes the team worse but the stats dont lie.I am really enjoying watching the pacers for the first time in a couple of years. Maybe the injury is whats hurting JO and I hope it is cause if they get him back healthy and the usual 20-9 guy then look out. Go Pacers!!!

JO is just not healthy and it took a handful of unproductive games to realize that. When he is 100% he's a good player but the odds of getting him at 100% throughout a season are very very low.

Last nights game was awesome - I love how we have a different hero each game (Granger, Tinsley, Dunleavy).

We just need to make out free throws and we would have locked Denver out.

When Jermaine is in there, he expects the ball to go through him first. When he is out, there are 5 options, all just as capable or better of hitting a shot. Seems when he is not in there, they look for the best option rather than straight at him. Tinsley is a different player, being able to create oppurtunities and running the floor like a true point guard. We have listened for years to JO's whining and dealt with his multiple injuries. I think we should take what we can get for him and move on.

Always good to see the pacers play with that kind of energy. It looked like they pushed the tempo of the game and played hard at both ends of the floor. My Take on J.O.-He's the best player on the team, he just needs to get healthy.

The Pacers are obviously better off with out Jermaine. We play a fast paced up tempo game and even IF he EVER gets to 100% he wouldnt be able to keep the pace. We need to trade him asap while we can. At the end of the year he will opt out and we will be left with nothing. The thing is it doesnt seem that any other team wants JO. The Pacers really played well last night when they pushed the tempo and got fast break points. We need to work on our defense however. Get what you can now for JO though...GO PACERS!

Keep it up Tinsley, I guess a new coach and a new system was just what he needed. He is a difference maker and his effort is 100% better this season. Tinsley wants to play for Obrien and it shows on the court. Im glad the Pacers kept Tins, and I cant believe I just wrote that!

JO our best player? Why is it we continue to win with him oit of the lineup? I agree with other posters here...we are BETTER without him in the starting lineup. When he is in the game, the offense goes through him. Everyone else just stands around watching. When he's gone, we have 5 players in double figures. The same thing happened every time he was missing last year...bring him off of the bench if he has to play.If anything, make him the highest paid 6th man in the league...at least we will win some games.
