UPDATE: Bruno's Inside the Game LIVE blog is up and running. Bargnani has a sore heel and won't play for the Raptors tonight. Patrick O'Bryan will start in his place.
The Indiana Pacers host the Toronto Raptors tonight at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers will be looking for their sixth win in eight games to continue their effort to finish the season in a positive fashion. For some reason, the Pacers and Raptors always seem to produce exciting games, so with the season winding down that theory will be put to the test tonight.
Here are the Pacers.com Matchups.
- Bruno's latest Caught in the Web shows some appreciation for T.J. Ford's play after relinquishing his starting role to come off the bench. Bruno puts it perfectly:
And Ford? It would've been easy for the veteran to take it badly, to feel as though he was being singled out for the losing streak, to cloud the locker room with gloom. Instead, he has responded with some of his best overall play of the season. He has been a decidedly positive force.
- Mike Wells reports on the positive team chemistry brewing in the Pacers locker room.
- Frank Zicarelli reports on T.J. Ford's return to the bench.
- Quinn Buckner offers up his thoughts on the Pacers changes this year.
