Painful evening of basketball

The Pacers got absolutely abused last night in what I consider to be one of the poorest defensive efforts I've ever seen.  And for me, it all started at the point where DC got completely bullied by Stuckey of the Pistons.  In a way, it was a shame they even tied that to send it to overtime because it might leave in their heads some positive memory about their efforts.  I don't mind so much getting torched by Prince, whose game I've always admired, but when we make Wilcox, Stuckey and Villanueva look like All-Stars, I have a problem.  And yes, Pacers, Ben Gordon can hit an open jumper.

When teams like the Heat or Celtics play poorly, you can call it a mental let-down.  Teams like the Pacers, scrapping for their playoff lives and trying to dig their way out of a hole don't have let-downs (down from what?).  Come on, guys, that was terrible - and to the Pistons no less.  Painful!
