IC Cold Links: Pacers Show Consistency for First Time This Year, But It Isn't Good Enough

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - APRIL 21: Derrick Rose #1 of the Chicago Bulls launches the game winning shot while defended by Dahntay Jones #1 and Danny Granger #33 of the Indiana Pacers in Game three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 NBA Playoffs on April 21, 2011 at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Bulls won 88-84.

Does anyone else continue to see the same game played out?  I completely agree with Mike Dunleavy, this is Groundhog's Day...The Indiana Pacers have had a few mini-streaks this season, but not against opponents like the Chicago Bulls.  I think this is the most consistent they have played all year long.  As young and inexperienced these guys are (not only in the playoffs, but in the NBA in general), you could expect a lot less against a #1 seed.  However, they are in each and every game right to the very end.

If they are to pull out a win in this series, they are going to have to create some seperation from Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, and Kyle Korver.  The Pacers are having trouble creating anything for themselves in the last few minutes of each of these games, so the cushion is much needed.  Regardless of the outcome of Saturday's game, this has been great for the guys in the long haul.  What a crowd to play in front of last night!  Although there was plenty of red, the crowd was great all night long.  Probably the biggest crowd these guys have played in front of at Conseco.
