I wanted to put together a passionate article about why us fans shouldn’t sweat too much over this one bad loss by the Indiana Pacers. I understand last night, the Pacers looked bad. I would be the first to admit that the Spurs are a bad match up for the Pacers, and it didn’t surprise me that they were able to pull away like they did. It didn’t help the Pacers that they couldn’t hit shots and had to take bad shots at times. But I didn’t see too much to give me concern that this team will be terrible. If anything, there were times when the Pacers started to make a run, but got snuffed out. So at least they were competing in that game until about the fourth quarter, then it did look like they gave in. You lose confidence when your shots aren’t falling, and the other team is pulling away...
