Prediction

- 103

This prediction worked last time for me with respect to the Pacers, so why fix it?

Anyhow, this game is a crap shoot. No one knows which Pacers team will show up. They'll battled through so many line-up changes due to injuries and certain underacheiving players (see Ford) that its too hard to predict.

Considering the sloppy basketball we've played in the last 2 games with turnovers (see Bosh) if we don't smarten up tonight, then a loss to the lowly Pacers is most definitely within reach for them.
