The Indiana Pacers have to pick themselves up off the canvas to take on the Portland Trail Blazers tonight.

After last night's second half TKO, the issues surrounding the Pacers have become more entertaining than the actual play of the Pacers. Consider the case of T.J. Ford after his play last night brought strong criticism from Slick Leonard and Mark Boyle, two respected icons of the franchise. Now if it's me and my actions bring about such a pointed response from Slick, I'm finding my way to a mirror to have a good introspective look at what's going on. Not T.J., he went to Twitter instead and lobbed some not so cryptic tweets. That helps.

After the crazy game in L.A. last night, the Pacers have to find a way to come together or they'll leave Portland resembling Mt. St. Helens. Actually, that might no be all bad.

For a Portland perspective, check out Blazers Edge. The Blazers signed Travis Diener today so I assume he'll be chirping away at his old teammates from the other bench tonight.
