IC Cold Links: After a bit of a tease, this (same) team will regroup and put their focus on the Utah Jazz

What a weird 24 hour period!  I had at least 4 or 5 tabs open yesterday from 2:00 - 4:00 hunting for any hints of something including the Pacers.  There was nothing until right at 3:00....Before yesterday I had convinced myself I would like to see this team play the season out, but then the OJ Mayo rumors came swirling around and I can't help but feel a hint of disappointment this morning.  Don't get me wrong, I am very excited about where the Pacers are right now and I think they will continue to improve overall and succeed; however, the idea of CHANGE has been ingrained as a positive in my head due to the last few years as a Pacers fan...

The attempt was made, but was, the sun rose this morning (with a few delightful inches of snow...) and the schedule remained.  The Utah Jazz come to town without two usual faces, Jerry Sloan and Deron Williams.  The Jazz have faced changes over the last few days and could be ripe for the picking.  It will be interesting to see what kind of play the Pacers bring tonight, especially after everyone knows Josh McRoberts and Brandon Rush were involved in the trade talks.  I have been impressed with Coach Vogel's strategies and motivational tactics, so I am sure he will get these guys passed what could have been and re-focused.

After the jump, check out the links of the day...
