I'll probably be having Thanksgiving dinner in Georgia when the game is going on.

I really want this one. My bro is a big-time LBJ fan and, quite frankly, I'm sick of hearing about them. A win would put us half a game back of them and looking good. I expect us to come out with the fire that we have had for the Miami games.

Hope you have fun Legend....

I'll tolerate nothing but a win Thurs......

Our team finally is looking like the team we expected to see....
2 straight wins and looking better each game....
We need to make a statement against the Cavs. telling the league that Ronnie is an MVP candidate, and that the Pacers are definetly for real.......

so I'll go...

Indy 107-94



Go PaCeRs!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, we'll be a game back of them if we win now, I believe.

Yes, I knew that about Saras and Z. Wasn't Saras the best man in Z's wedding?

And that is good for us that Damon Jones might be out ( as long as he isn't hurt seriously). I expect Tinsley to be way too quick with the rock for Eric Snow and Luke Jackson. Both will have problems with Saras, too. And we won't have to rely on A.J. to guard Damon at any point (YES!!! I'm sorry, but he has no business playing ahead of the other two PG's). I'm really looking forward to the game.

I'll say

Pacers 95
Cavs 92

Should be a good game and an early test for both teams.

103-95 Pacers win...

This is a HUGE game for us...

*Cleveland is right ahead of us in the rankings...

*LeBron Vs. Ron... who else has been salavating at this for a year now?

*Another big time conference foe... we need to continue to beat the best of the best... Cleveland is one of those type teams this year.

*Facing Mike Brown... will any of his inside knowledge give his team the advantage? He has them playing some serious D right now... we need to bring our entire game on this night!

*Damon Jones has been known to hurt our team in the past... I hope he's out.

*No dominating quick PGs on cleveland... could be a huge factor in our favor. Sarunas and Tinsley could both have big nights... Snow is a good defender... can't wait to see how if he affects our boys any.

Carlisle also knows Mike Brown well and will know how to combat the 1-on-1 situations that the Cavs try to set up in their offense. I'm taking us. We usually play well on Thanksgiving and usually win these big games, especially at home. I'm going 94-86 us. Jack and Artest have to really make LBJ and Larry work, though. J.O. and the point guards need to dominate and we need strong bench play.

Reggie says that Pollard needs to step up on offense. What?

Croshere misses two layups. What?

Tied at 6 with 7 minutes left in the first.
