    Default First Home Game of the 2012-2013 Season (Indiana Pacers VS. Toronto Raptors)

    Looks like our first home game of the highly anticipated 2012-2013 season will be against the Indiana Pacers. I totally can't wait. Here's the NBA Schedule for next season:

    I was at the home opener this year vs. the Pacers. Tons of bad blood between the players on both teams. Always a scrap fest.

    I realized that as well. However I don't exactly expect us to do well early on. The team chemistry isn't really there yet especially with 3 new starters.

    Might have eased considering Barbosa is no longer a Rap and eventually became a Pacer.

    Jonas will have a great first test of life against the NBA's elite true C's.

    Granger is starting to make me irritable about his play and posturing. Maybe he should join the Celtics. or we can sic Lowry on him.

    I hate Granger, no matter how good the guy can play when feelin' it...

    That being said, the matchups are even at both ends with the players, Valanciunas being the only "liability," which isn't too much of a problem, unless he fouls out in the first quarter or is conpletelu dominated by Hibbert...

    Screw that. Our defensive culture change will leave the Pacers pointless

    We're so good defensively, they'll be at negative scoring...

    On topic:

    George Hill and DJ Augustin will be a really nice point guard duo.

    two shot happy guards isn't a good duo. Our Duo is a gazillion times better if Jose decides not to leave

    As much as our duo is better, you can't take away anything from the fact that George Hill and DJ Augustin are good talented point guards.

    Both can create for teammates as well as they can make shots. None are all-star caliber, but both can play solid basketball. Although, I would rather prefer Collison/Hill...
