IC Cold Links: Pacers Need To Come Back Strong Against Bulls

The Indiana Pacers can't let a tough loss in Boston last night derail the effort they need to finish the season strong.

The end of the NBA regular season is in sight, less than a month away. If the Indiana Pacers want to play past their last game at Orlando Magic, they have to maintain the type of effort they put for last night, even if it did result in a loss to the Boston Celtics.

Sometimes you run into a better team playing just as hard. The breaks aren't falling your way, nor are your shots. It happens, but there's no reason to change course. The Pacers have had wild fluctuations in mood, effort and results throughout the season. Because of that, there's no time left for anything but a consistent, grinding effort over the remaining 14 games.

Keep grinding away and the shots will fall, you'll make your own breaks and win some games you're not expect to win. Tomorrow night against the Chicago Bulls would be a nice start, but if not so be it. No time for a confidence lag, go at Memphis on Saturday with the same fervor, and so on. Mental toughness hasn't been this teams strong suit throughout this season, but now is the time to show some resolve.

Speaking of the Bulls, congratulation to Nate Sperka, winner of the MS Awareness Night Ticket giveaway for the game on Friday night. Also, still have a few hours left to join the Indy Cornrows NCAA Tournament Pick 'Em for site bragging rights. Thanks to bleedinblueandgold for setting it up!

After the jump, a few links of interest from last night's loss along with Danny Granger offering some English lessons.
