Wallace kept his mouth shut because he was playing crap team. There was no need to open it.

I won't take the writeon, Come On, or Old Roy angle. Not sure any of those watched the game. It was an entertaining game but you always felt that the Pistons would win. Something is missing from the Pacers and, dare I say it, that it's JO's interior defense.

The Pistons played with the Pacers, for most of the second half; they played the bench...They knew they would kill the Pacers in the 4th quarter...Murphy, Duleavy, Deimer/Deiner (whateva), Foster, and Granger: COME ON THIS TEAM COULDN'T BEAT CARMEL...

Over-rated, slow, and just weak...

Pacers will NOT win 30 games....

Diener says they are a "young" team. I'm not sure what young is in the NBA anymore, but they don't seem that young to me. Half of the team is 27 or older, and most are traveled. If anything they play old.

I watched the fourth quarter of a game, which is more than I have for a while now. Fun to watch, however no defense and simply not enough horses to compete at Detroit's level!!!

"Wallace too much", anybody is too much for these guys, most importantly I would like to thank Larry Bird. Thanks Larry, what great talent you brought here, just don't trade the draft pick again.........Please don't do that!!!!!!!

Wow, come on guys! 2 years ago when 1/2 this team was shooting up Indpls ( with guns not free throws!) and fighting in the stands, we as fans cried out for them to MAKE A CHANGE AND TRADE SOME OF THESE YO-YO'S. EVEN IF IT MEANT WE GOT BACK LESS TALENT IN RETURN, AND AS LONG AS THEY PLAYED HARD, WE WOULD SUPPORT THEM.
They did their part by trading Artest, and Jackson.
Well, LAST in the NBA in home attendance, and with all the gripping on the msg boards, we as fans are not supporting them and doing our part.

Wrong. I watch games when I can and still go to a few games, but I still have the right to rip Bird and what he has put together. He is arrogant, not as smart as he thinks he is, and has made some very bad moves.

Let me just say that I was at this game and it was a blast. The guys all played tough, esp. the starting 5 of Diener, Dunleavy, Rush (I believe he started, either him or Murphy), Foster, and Granger. Granger had an off night, but the other guys played toe-to-toe with Detroit until the very end when it seemed like veteran experience and just an overall better team wore them down. It was 106-104 with less than a minute to play, and the fans who were there were on their feet cheering the team's effort. Diener seemed like he was on fire all game, Dunleavy had a huge night, Foster was cleaning up the boards...there were some really great highlights, defensive and offensive. I really think that had Tinsley and O'Neal played, the Pacers could and would have won this game.

When they play like this, they are a fun team to watch, and Conseco could be a great venue again if people would give them a chance. It's about effort, and the Pacers gave that in spades.

When it got down to the end, the Pacers started jacking up bad shots, couldn't rebound and MAKE A FREE THROW?

I couldn't agree more. This was an extremely fun game to attend. This city has made up their mind about the Pacers and that's not going to change. I just don't understand how someone who doesn't watch the game or attend the game can get on here and call people out when they have no idea what is going on. The Pacers looked great last night and if they would have been playing anyone else probably would have won that game. Detroit is one of the best franchises in the NBA and we gave them a hard fought game. Remember, this is basically the same Detroit team (minus B. Wallace) that was knocking us out of the playoffs when Reggie was here, too. I understand losses are tough and I hate them just as much as anyone else, but last night is not a reason to jump on this team and start crying "thug." I only hope now is that when this team turns it around the bandwagon jumpers stay off the wagon.

In my above rant, I did mean to mention that the only thing that drove me crazy last night was the free throw shooting so I agree there. Our offense is jacking up shots, that's what we do. Some "bad" shots were going in last night in the first half that weren't falling in the second. That happens.

The Pacers are not as tired and worn out as your material.

It was an enjoyable game. The only thing wrong was the score at the end. It was close but no cigar as they say. I think the guys got a little anxious at the end and got themselves out of rhythm a bit and when they got back in rhythm it was too late. Another two minutes and it would have been ours.

Friday night guys. Hang in there, you are beginning to all come together. You are winners either way. Jeff Foster you never cease to amaze me. Mike Dunleavy you are beginning to really relax and are taking over for the good. Troy Murphy is calming down and playing ball more consistently. Danny Granger you need to settle down a bit, take your time and then shoot. You are just lobbing then ball. You will have better accuracy. Diener you go Mister.

I always want the Pacers to win, but especially against Detroit every since the Brawl. As far as I am concerned they are the ones that started the whole mess. We have never stopped paying for the situation. Pacers rule and Pistons drool. Go, Fight, Win! God bless the Indiana Pacers!!!

They are ABLE to play better BECAUSE Jermaine is OUT of the game. Thank God for that. We do need Jamaal back in, but they have been doing better each game with both of them out. They play together better.
