IC Cold Links: Indiana Pacers Hold off the Milwaukee Bucks, and Create Separation from 9th and 10th Place

The Indiana Pacers won't give us a break this year with many easy wins.  They either take control and build a big lead only to lose it and have to fight off the opponent (see last night), or they dig a deep hole and have to climb their way back.  Luckily, they have held onto their leads as of late (yes, I just knocked on wood).  Last night was no exception.  A solid, balanced scoring attack by Danny Granger, Darren Collison and everyone else who played created a lot of options when the Milwaukee Bucks were clawing their way back.

This was huge win last night!  The Pacers are now 2 full games ahead of the Charlotte Bobcats (plus they hold the tie-breaker) since they lost to the Orlando Magic, and they are 4 full games ahead of the Bucks (plus the tie breaker as well).  Two games will be tough to overcome for the Bobcats with only 5 games remaining; however, this Pacers team has proven you can't write anything in stone until it is completely set...
