Game Thread: Indiana Pacers Vs. Boston Celtics

4-2 4-3
January 6, 2012 - 7:30PM EST
TD Garden
Radio: WIBC 93.1FM TV: Fox Sports Indiana
Probable starters:
Darren Collison PG Rajon Rondo
Paul George SG Ray Allen
Danny Granger SF Paul Pierce
David West PF Kevin Garnett
Roy Hibbert C Jermaine O'Neal

If this is half the team most fans hope it is, the Indiana Pacers will be champing at the bit to get on the court with the Boston Celtics and then fired up and ready to play once the ball tips.

This is the type of game where having a veteran presence should benefit the Pacers. The steady play of David West and the return of Jeff Foster should help the Pacers stay focused on executing their game plan and not getting caught up in the frenzy of any runs by the Celtics that could turn TD Garden into a madhouse.

Remaining focused on the game plan is one thing, but knocking down shots is another.The Pacers shooters have to keep shooting but hopefully they can make more than they miss.
