    Raptors-Nets off to an interesting start. At the half, DeRozan and Ross both scoreless yet the Raptors are within four.

    Another observation: Has Chris Broussard always been this terrible at sideline interviews?

    Warriors-Clippers coming to the wire as well, but who didn't expect that?

    Road teams are 2-0 so far and the Hawks lead the Pacers by 11 midway through the third quarter.

    These Pacers are in such disarray I think they're on their way to becoming the first No. 1 seed to ever be swept in the first round.

    These are the Atlanta Hawks you're talking about, so they'll figure out a way to blow this. But, yes, the Pacers do not look like a team that is destined for a long postseason.

    Roy Hibbert had eight points and eight rebounds tonight. It's telling for the Pacers that it's considered a bounce back game (statistically speaking) for him.

    I wonder if they're trying to get Frank Vogel fired, but for the life of me, I wouldn't know why.

    I just wonder if the chemistry got completely screwed up bringing in Turner and Bynum. I saw one story where it's intimated that the players consider Turner a selfish player and a really crappy teammate.

    As good a theory as any as far as Turner is concerned, although I'd submit that maybe it's less Turner than it is resentment over the departure of Danny Granger, who was popular in the locker room.

    Bynum? Maybe, I know he has a toxic rep, but he's barely played. Their chemistry must have been super fragile to begin with if all it took was those changes.

    Still doesn't explain the massive downfall of Hibbert. I covered the Pacers-Thunder game a week ago and he looked like a shell of a player.

    Chemistry is more likely to get screwed up beginning inside the locker room than on the floor. The story I referenced noted that since joining the Pacers Turner had just one assist on a bucket by Hibbert.
