All in all, I was very proud to be a Pacer fan last night. Effort was unbelievable and through 3 1/2 quarters, our offensive efficiency was through the roof. I just thought they crapped their pants a little bit starting with about 5 minutes left. It started with a really early-in-the-possession 3 attempt and miss from Granger (reverting to old habits) and it culminated with the 5 second call with 8.9 left. For those final 5 minutes, they didn't play as they had the rest of the game. It's in them, we just need to learn how to manage ourselves in meaningful situations again. That had a nice playoff feel for me; I hope they can learn from it.
Also, way too many uncontested dunks from LeBron. I know he's a big diesel, but somebody needs to put him on his ass in an attempt to block his dunks. Way too easy last night. That's when you have fond memories of the Davis Boys lurking under the basket.
