Pacers Ready to Rumble in D.C.

The Washington Wizards take a break from fighting each other to welcome the Pacers to D.C. This will be a tough game for the Pacers after displaying their best effort of the year in a win last night against the Sixers.

Here is a preview from Coach Carlisle lays out the challenge of repeating last night's effort on the road.

"Now, we've got to sustain it," said Coach Rick Carlisle. "Inconsistency has been our nemesis. But if we play with this kind of effort, the mistakes will work themselves out."

A great effort tonight will be a great, early indication that this Pacers team is ready to raise their game to another level. As always, talk is fine, but show me on the court.
