IC Cold Links: Pacers' Gut Check Continues Against Nets

The Indiana Pacers finish up their three-game back-to-back-to-back stretch with an anti-climactic matchup against the New Jersey Nets on Thursday night at the Fieldhouse.

At least the Pacers have made fatigue a non-issue with the 20-point deficits and light workload for key players in the first two games. The Nets will be looking at the limping Pacers as a chance to ease their own woes, arriving at the Fieldhouse losers of seven consecutive games, including a 105-100 loss last night at home to Memphis.

In past years, it was common in game threads to wonder which non-descript player from the opposing team would put up a season or career-high against the Pacers because it always seemed to happen when things were going poorly for the P's. That situation arose again last night when Semih Erden put up a career-best effort in the post for Cleveland. Looking at the Nets lineup, there are plenty of candidates for such an honor tonight.

Hopefully they Pacers can heat up at home and turn this thing around to finish the pre-All-Star break schedule on a positive note. They just needs to show some guts to weather this gut check.
