I watched the last 5 minutes of the 4th quarter of Game 1 in this series and was amazed at the turnaround. Pacers went from being up by 7 and in command, with Hansbrough hitting a soft jumper every time he got the ball in his hands to being tossed around like a bunch of pillows as the Bulls clawed their way into the lead. I don't see the Pacers coming back from a loss like that.
