Unreal. The Indiana Pacers posted their most exciting win of the season last night. Silly me, I was thinking they'd be able to bask in local spotlight of all the positives that oozed out of the comeback win against the Warriors.
Well, there are three stories dedicated to the Pacers in this morning's Indy Star, but the game story was overshadowed by two negative hits on the organization. That may sound like a shot at the Star, it's not, they're reporting the facts.
The fact is, Jamaal Tinsley did rest his sore knee last night, but that's because Tins was suspended for the game.
What exactly happened during the session is unknown. However, coach Jim O'Brien said prior to Wednesday's game that Tinsley would sit out because of an injured knee. O'Brien told The Star the same thing after the game.
The other negative story was a Bob Kravitz column on the faulty NBA drug testing policy that doesn't notify teams after a player fails two tests. This is more a shot at the NBA, but since it fully rehashes the suspension of Pacer center David Harrison, it forces us all to roll around in the muddy situation.
So, we had about two hours of NBA bliss following the win. Hope you enjoyed it.
