IC Cold Links: Pacers' Trio Needs To Match Strong Opening Effort On A Consistent Basis

The Indiana Pacers' "Big Three" of Danny Granger, Roy Hibbert and Darren Collison looked more like a "Smedium Three" in the end last night when compared to the San Antonio Spurs' veteran trio responsible for closing out the win.

Still, the Pacers' trio did come up big in their first real game together which bodes well for the rest of the season. How consistently they can provide last night's type of production will have a major impact on the number of wins and losses the Pacers compile. As the team moves into a portion of the schedule where they play more comparable teams, Granger, Hibbert and Collison will have to find ways to finish strong and close out wins ala Timmy and the boys last night.

After the jump, a few links of interest from the loss last night.
