The Pacers should have no problem getting up for this one, with a capacity crowd electrifying the joint they'll need to tap into that energy to keep Mo Williams in check and then make sure LeBron doesn't just take over the game and single-handedly carry the Cavs to a win. Last year, Danny Granger was real feisty with LeBron and seemed to relish the challenge. Even got the better of him for a win in one of the games. I'm expecting much of the same tonight.
LeBron will be playing with a minor wrist injury and without Shaq and Anderson Varejao in the front court. Now I'm not advocating dirty play here, but if JOB simply lets Tyler Hansbrough play for a few minutes with LeBron on the court, there's a pretty good chance that Bron's wrist may be left worse for wear after a few minutes. Just a thought.

Earlier today, T.J. Ford tweeted about he and Dahntay Jones.
False statement about @tj_ford @dahntay1 having beef.. We're family headed for the same goals.. My man since college..
Personally, I never thought the two players had a beef based on the failed fast break in question early in the Knicks game on Wednesday. I just didn't like T.J.'s public dramatics over Dahntay making a poor judgment on the break.
