Opening night at the Fildhouse, the defending champion Bostons Celtics in town, a new-look Pacer roster ready to officially introduce themselves to the home town fans. What's not to like?

Well, I guess I could do without that part about the Celtics. This is the first of three games against the C's before Christmas. Oh, well, the Pacers might as well get them out of the way while they learn how to compete with one another at a high level. Before you go any further, here's Bruno's Scouting Report. Yes, Mike Dunleavy still out.

With the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots set to play Sunday night, I imagine there will be plenty of NFL player sightings near the court. There will be even more Boston sports fan sightings. Over/under on a Boston sports fan being escorted out of the game? I'd say before Reb give the "two minutes, two-waaaa!" call in the second quarter.

For a Celtics perspective, check out CelticsBlog.

I will be at the game blogging on Pacers.com and commenting on this thread. Hope everyone who bought tickets through the site enjoys the game. I really appreciate the response and so do the Pacers. Look for more deals to come.

As always, feel free to drop your thoughts on the game in the comments.
