I feel ya, I don't want to see lose but I think Pop "MAY" not care about the Pacers long term, but rather have guys fresh for their showdown with the Thunder. Mathematically we need to beat OKC to keep your lead. But they other teams we play this week aren't as much factor to our #1 seed. We to beat OKC to stretch the lead, so I think that's the true goal. No else will catch us. We'll beat Memphis, we own the GSW and the rest will be either rest guys when they lock up the overall best record.
