The Indiana Pacers will get a hearty helping of perspective today after two consecutive losses that have the team reeling on the court.
David West and his wife Lesley are hosting the team's annual "Come To Our House" Thanksgiving Dinner at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday for more than 700 men, women and children from Indianapolis area missions and shelters.
There's no doubt the team will be back on the court later in the day trying to tend to what ails them after losing their fifth game in six tries in horrid fashion on Wednesday night in Milwaukee. At least in the frustrating loss to Toronto, the Pacers gave themselves a chance to win but literally couldn't make any of a number of good shots when it counted in the fourth quarter.
Last night in Milwuakee, the Pacers never had a chance and gave off a vibe of splitting apart at the seams instead of coming together to find a collective fix. Maybe a morning of helping others off the court will help the players return to the court willing to help each other figure out how to play better together.
Surely, they can't play any worse, right?
