IC Cold Links: Pacers See the Bobcats Inch Closer, So They Turn it Up Against the Celtics in the 4th

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Indiana Pacers take down the Boston Celtics last night.  Roy Hibbert looked to take advantage of the smaller lineup the Celtics used due to the foul trouble of Kevin Garnett and Nenad Krstic.  He looked confident and willing to take the ball up strong for the most part (except for that fade away jump shot in the 4th...against a guy about 5 or 6 inches shorter than him).  Darren Collison looked great in the 4th quarter.  His killer mentality at the end of the game is sorely needed, but on a consistent basis.  Hopefully this game will get him and backup, A.J. Price back on track.

This Pacers team is perplexing and I am not trying to figure them out anymore.  I am just hoping they pull out enough W's to get into the playoffs.  Once in the playoffs, maybe they will play like they have recently against the better teams??  If they play up to their opponent's potential, maybe they will make things a little interesting in the first round.  Honestly, we can't really know with the inconsistency of this team.  Nonetheless, playoffs are a must and will be very beneficial to this team...
