Stephen Jackson returns to his former employer tonight, and he brings along his friends Gerald Wallace and D.J. Augustin. The Bobcats are coming off a sloppy win against the Denver Nuggets....but a win. The Pacers came out with a win against the Bobcats earlier in the season, so they will be looking for a little revenge.
The Pacers should be looking for a little revenge as they come off a very tough loss against Andrew Bogut and Ersan Ilyasova (who apparently loves playing the Pacers). Don't look now, but the Pacers have quietly lost 3 of their last 4 games. I think they come out with fire and handle the Bobcats, and they show the world again that this is a new Pacers team. We all see that, but the general public won't appreciate it until they string together a long winning streak or are consistent over a 2-3 week period
Speaking of Bogut, Hibbert tweeted the other day that Squad 6 called Area 55 and him copycats. I see the similarities, but you guys are louder and prouder, right?! I will be sitting way up behind you guys tonight, so I hope I have trouble hearing anything down on the court because you guys create a noise barrier.....let's hear you tonight Area 55!!!
