08:10 AM ET 04.19 | Indiana did manage to hold Derrick Rose to 36 points Monday night, but it came in a six-point loss in Game 2. The Pacers' biggest concern right now, though, is Darren Collison's condition. Collison stepped on a cameraman along the baseline following a layup with 2:43 left in the first half, turning his left ankle. He lay on the ground momentarily, slapping the ground in frustration before going straight to the locker room. He tried to warm up at halftime by jogging, but he couldn't continue. A Pacers spokesman said Collison will be day-to-day. Collison's injury left A.J. Price and T.J. Ford, who spent two months out of the playing rotation, as the point guards. ... "You always miss your leader," Vogel said. "I thought [Ford and Price] filled in admirably."

They sure did. I can't believe that they are an 8-game below .500 team

Indiana has played amazing in this series and refusing to rollover and die. I like the fight on both teams.

They should have won game 1

I watched the game.. Dont think it matter anyways.

They've showed allot of heart. Let's hope Collison is okay for game 3.

It amazes me that the players don't get hurt a lot more with all the clowns sitting on the side and baselines. This kind of injury is unacceptable.

The Pacers have showed up to play. They have played well. It has been a good series so far. Rose is just a beast flat out. He really has that rare killer instinct.

Keep playing your hearts out, Bros.

When you look back on championship runs, there is a point where an opponent really challenged the contender. That, in turn, makes the contender stronger and actually contributes to the run. This could be what we're seeing.

Rose has been on the other end of this one, two years ago when the Bulls pushed the C's to 7 games. I dont think he's taking them for granted. If Boozer can continue to play the way he did last night I dont see this series going that far, but I am leary of the Bulls giving up a game In Indy. Going back to the Reg season they have won something like 11 straight, they are due for a wake up call.
