IC Cold Links: Pacers Trying To Build On Win, Ride The Monkey Momentum

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The latest episode of Pacers Crate raises the bar in high-profile guests once again.

First, there was Austin Croshere, followed by the legendary Reggie Miller. So how does a Pacer-centric webcast top Reggie Miller?

Easy. Dawn the cowboy monkey. Technically, I guess Dawn is a cowgirl monkey, but regardless, the cowboy monkeys riding border collies during halftime of the Orlando Magic game set the perfect tone for the night: Anything was possible. And thus, the Pacers went on to beat the Magic, so a light off-day "chat" with Dawn actually seems appropriate.

Highlights include Conrad monkeying around with the, well, monkey while Mark Boyle and Chris Denari try to discuss basketball. The only thing that would improve this episode is if there was some thought bubble technology available to display the acerbic wit flowing through Boyle's mind during the first few minutes.

Maybe the Pacers can ride their monkey momentum for a few more wins in the next couple of weeks.

Enjoy the video after the jump along with a few other links, including post-practice interviews from yesterday.

"Fortunately I think both parties hate that it came down to this. I think there's a better light at the end of tunnel. I think for me, it's keeping my spirits high, continue to smile. I just try to be the same person and not let these things affect me." Light at the end of the tunnel? Could that be a possible trade?
