Pacers Have to Earn Dap
The Pacers are certainly flying under the radar, unless, of course, there is a guns and strippers joke to be told. Any praise they hear this year will be hard earned. That's a good thing.
On ESPN.com, David Thorpe jotted down 38 points from the NBA action Tuesday night while he surfed the League Pass. The Pacers were mentioned in two of the points.
I can live with both of those points. Saras needs to string a few games like last night together and the comment will be spot on. As for Al, the mohawk does look odd, especially with the headband. Maybe after last night's rough start, he'll come out clean on Friday.
7. Sarunas Jasikevicius has tremendous court vision. And is a winner. Rick Carlisle seems to have a better feel for how to use him. I liked him playing with Jamaal Tinsley and Marquis Daniels -- three playmakers with versatile games.
18. Al Harrington's mohawk is just wrong. He must have lost a bet.
