Game #54 Preview: Just Win a Game
Indiana Pacers @ New Orleans Hornets

The Pacers sure do need a win.
No deals were made before the deadline and the fan base seems to be as frustrated as I can remember. The past few years with the crime and off-court embarrassment were worse, sure, but this is a different kind of disillusionment and frustration. This is a fan base with no faith that the team can win a game. And with good reason.
There isn’t really a ton to say about tonight’s game specifically. The Hornets aren’t that good, and Chris Paul isn’t playing. The Pacers blew a decent chance to beat the Spurs the other night and can hopefully use that disappointment to knock off a non-threatening swarm of Bees tonight in New Orleans. Of course, the Pacers are horrible on the road (6-20 on the year), so every team not named the Nets is a heavy favorite in their own building, but theoretically, this is a very winnable game if Indy can make its shots.
That’s always the big if though, isn’t it?
But c’mon, Indy, let’s give the fans a reason to care — if only for one evening.
