The Indiana Pacers begin adjusting to life without Danny Granger tonight when they host the Portland Trail Blazers at Conseco Fieldhouse. The initial shock of losing Granger for a month or two has passed so now it's time to see which players can step up in 33's absence and bring the energy and effort to help lead the team. At this point, expecting wins, especially against the Blazers, might not be fair, but a guts-spilling effort from everyone in the home whites should be a given. I just hope the deep freeze outside doesn't translate to the Pacers' shooting efforts tonight.
