The Indiana Pacers' emotions are running high, they have lost three straight, they are a very young team...yet, they still own the 8th spot in the east. As Tom points out, the Pacers are still heading towards a playoff run. In order to do so, they will have to play about .500 basketball from here on out. They will look to Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand and Jrue Holiday tonight for the first of their ten projected wins. The Philadelphia 76ers are playing well as of late and will be a tough matchup up for the Pacers. They too are a young team and seem to have a strong group of leaders on the team to guide the young guns.
