Thanks to matchups against the Hornets and Bobcats last week, the Pacers were able to right the ship after faltering a couple of times the week prior to that. And they should be able to keep that winning streak going with a pair of games against the Warriors and Hornets this week. That's the name of the game right now for Indy—winning the games that they should win, keeping pace with the Bulls in the Central Division, and staying in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference playoff race. It doesn't always have to be pretty, guys. Just keep stacking wins in the second half of the season by any means necessary.—Chris Yuscavage
