Next up for the Pacers this evening is a game at home against the Boston Celtics and former Butler coach Brad Stevens. This might be the first time ever I really want a Stevens' coach team to get crushed. But that's how I feel about tonight's contest.
Tonight is my family's Christmas get together and I am looking forward to spending that time with them. But you can bet my DVR will be recording to give me some high quality sports entertainment for late into the night.
This is my final column before Christmas Day and I hope everyone has a happy holiday as well as a warm safe one.
