Earlier this season, we criticized Pacers star Danny Granger for failing to get his teammates involved in some of their games. "Sharing is caring" is how we phrased it. Well, it sounds like dude got the message loud and clear. The Sacramento loss aside, this team handled their business during their West Coast trip last week and looked mighty impressive on Sunday night against the Lake Show with all five starters (and one bench player!) finishing in double figures for the game. Their true test will come on Wednesday, though, when they square off with the Bulls. Keep on sharing, Danny. We told you it'd work, didn't we?—Chris Yuscavage
