IC Cold Links: Rose, Boozer, and Deng show the Pacers how to play out a fourth quarter

New, comments

The Indiana Pacers continue to push the NBA to play only three quarters every game.  They believe themselves to be one of the top 5 three quarter teams, but the league states "history" as being a reason to continue with 4 quarters.  Fortunately for Derrick Rose, Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng, four quarters were played last night.  Check out Nathan's review of last night's game for further detail of what actually went on if you missed it.

After two positive outings from Josh McRoberts, who scored a career high 22 points last night, there will inevitably be a battle for the PF position between McBob and Tyler Hansbrough.  Jim O'Brien went with Hansbrough because he wanted more offense, but then McBob scores 22 points.  Will JOB put both in the rotation and completely take out James Posey?  Will he take Foster out of the rotation?  Seems like Foster is too much of a positive contributor to not play right, let me know what you guys think.  What will JOB do with the rotation, if anything?  After the jump, check out the links of the day...
