Won’t get to watch this one, would love to see Mikal shut Warren down. Is Oladipo playing?

Dude! It was supposed to be Indy that started today's thread. I thought that was clear?!

He was asleep on the job! Can't have a missing Game Day thread 3 hours before tip-off! :-)

Well last time we did and we won! I think Indy started it about 2 hours before game time. He was probably waiting for the magic hour.

OK, Marty. I'm going to tell you what I told Indy. You're responsible if we lose.

that's exactly what I was doing, but Mori just couldn't keep his cool. Lot of pressure on you now...

Now we know who to blame if we lose. If we win we have a new Game Day guy.

Maintaining tradition on the game-day threads has worked wonders for us for the last 10 years. Boo the man who messes with that! Boo!

This is a must win. We can’t lose to the Pacers. Losses are incoming, but we need to beat the Pacers for sure.

This might be the biggest game of the bubble. (I hold the right to say this again next game, and again the next game, if they win).
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Think these next 3 are huge. Simmons is out in Philly, Dallas probably will rest their players the last game. Those should both be quite winnable. If we can get at least 2 of the next 3, I think we can get in.

I do too. It feels like an "L" is coming.
