The Indiana Pacers hit the road tonight to take on the Detroit Piston before heading into the all-star break over the weekend.

Lots of effort, lots of energy and lots of emotion expended last night in the loss to Miami. Certainly wasn't a devastating loss, but it will be if the Pacers struggle to bring the effort tonight and stumble into the break with a another loss.

The Pacers have played far from perfect under Frank Vogel, but they've given a great effort or at least enough effort each time out. Last night, Roy Hibbert said that the Pacers were "on the prowl" and "hungry" but today is a different day. They better be stay hungry tonight because they're still on probation with no room for slippage. Not time exhale and relax. That comes tomorrow...after a win.
