The Pacers have been ping ponging wins and losses back and forth over the past nine games. According to the pattern, a loss is due tonight in New York. Sounds like a great time to break the pattern and start stringing a few wins together, plus another I'm getting tired of these "ifs and buts" losses that have kept the Blue and Gold at .500. Of the four Ls posted in the past nine games, three (Sonics, Suns, and Raptors) were potential Ws hanging there to be taken. Painful losses that have you muttering that if this play hadn't happened, then they would've won or they shoudl've won but they couldn't get a call or a bounce or fill in your own excuse.
Check out Bruno's Scouting Report for more info on the game. Hopefully, J.O. will be ready to go. According to Bruno's Blog J.O. will have the Knicks ready to go. In defending the Knicks he threw the players under the bus.
Check out Posting and Toasting for the Knicks' side of things.
