Way to bounce back Pacers. I'm thrilled how JO seems to be fitting in. He has flashes of his old game, but sometimes you can literally seem him try to speed his game up. Perhaps our best stretch of the night was when he was on the floor, but played the rebounding and defense roles - and let the offense be superb around him.

O'Brien has done well getting him to adapt, and I give credit to JO as well. Please keep it up!

Yes, I like what I saw tonight, the team bounced back well after the tough loss in Cleveland. The team seems to be jelling much better in the last couple weeks, hope we can keep it up, big stretch coming up!

Its amazing to see how capable the Pacers can be this year - they have made up some large point gaps in very short time. If they can just get it together and be consistent.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is actually all about the winning. The purpose of a sports franchise is ultimately to win, not to be role models or representatives of virtue and purity.

The Colts won last year not because of their purity, they won because they were starting 7 1st round draft choices on offense, and that brain fade drop of a sure touchdown by New England.

OMFG, Troy Murphy hit someone, he must be a....gasp...thug! Why, the Pacers ought to cut him for such an immoral act and the NBA ought to throw him out of the league and his house should be burned to the ground and he should be banned from Indianapolis.

Oh, wait, Troy Murphy is white, that's why you won't see anyone whining about his ejection on this board. I can only imagine what would have been said if Tinsley or JO had thrown a punch. Think about it.

Good teams don't let themselves get down that far. Weird thing is the Pacers either go up big and then lose or they get down early and win late.

What's up with the attendance? Is it the "thug" factor (?), b/c record-wise there's been worse Pacer teams than this one in the past.

I would hate to lose the franchise to Okla. City or Las Vegas, there's such a history here.

I can't believe you are making this into a race thing...even though I'm sure you are spot on.
Most racists are oblivious to their own bigotry, and its insensitive to suggest they think otherwise.

Cmon man. You trying to turn it into a black white thing? If you look at the % of black players to white in the NBA what is it 70-30 that would mean if a player gets involved in something there is a 70% chance he is a black player it is just the makeup of the league, nice try though i am sure some idiots will take the bait. I sure miss watching the Pacers since I had to move. Kareem Rush went off tonight huh?

Yeah, the poor attendance is due to public perception. People are upset, and rightfully so, at the franchise. We'll be ok, the Pacers just need to clean up their act. For now, this is a fun Pacers team to watch, and for those of us that are left, Go Pacers!

Someone needs to find a place for Tinsley to enjoy himself where others on team do. Reggie never had problems in all the time he was here. He needs a girl friend or new friends with more common sense. Also who needs three cars? He's better than this, wake up or send him elsewhere to party.

Maybe that's because Reggie had a wife at home to keep him in line...oh yeah, and to burn his house down when she caught him cheating.

First of all, where were the parents?

An announced attendance of under 11k? Meaning closer to 9K? actually there?
Its pretty sad that they can only get the venue about half full. Other than JO, who do the pacers have to bring fans in?

A few years ago you could get 'Mark Jackson or Reggie Miller Holiday packs'. Now they are featuring 'Mike Dunleavy and Ike Dieago packs'...

Seriously. Why pay 500 dollars for a courtside seat? Why pay 25 for a nosebleed? There is no draw to the pacers anymore. especially when you can watch them on tv.

We're screwed since they've got so many mediocre players under huge contracts... don't expect the pacers to make anything major happen for a while.

Sorry Jim. You done got screwed.
