After a vomit-inducing loss in New York last night, the Pacers can clean themselves up and get themselves right tonight in the Fieldhouse with a rematch. Indy got smacked in the mouth early, and spent the rest of the game waiting for it to end. Unforgiveable for a team that is fighting for playoff position, standing 2-1/2 games out of third, but also 2-1/2 games out of seventh.
It’s time for my twitter preview, but in this 140 seconds, I give you the added bonus of letting you know why it’s really a bad idea to move George Hill in as the starting point guard. What I don’t touch on in the video is that given the playoff race noted above, it’s a tremendously bad idea to break up the most stable lineup the Indiana Pacers have had for years and replace it with a unit that has only played together for 19 minutes – and played together poorly.

All for the sake of Marie.
