I corrected the lineup regarding S-Jax, but who's to say that Edwards isn't really drunk? ;)

Well, so far Dale Davis is the Pacers leading scorer with 6.

We are getting hot on offense, Dale is playing great and so is AJ.

Jazz have no offensive game at all, if get hot and start knocking down some threes we will win this one by alot.

This game has some similarity to the game played in Utah last week. I just hope the Jazz don't go on a big scoring run to take the lead later on...

I just heard that JO was examined by doctors tonight in Indy, and we could possibly know more about the injury tommorow.

Where did you hear that?
During the game, while Stacy Paetz was reporting by the sideline, after she was done, one of our announcers (Either Buckner or Kellog) Said he was examined by doctors tonight here in Indy, and we could "possibly" know more tommorow, and they also said that it was good that JO wasn't in a sling. (I think JO was in a sling during yesterday's practice)

i thought he stopped wearing the sling about a week ago.

I've gone in ther the last few games, and even though there's a list of names, I don't get any response from anyone, so I go away.

Can't chat today - too much going on right now. Sorry.

the defense has disappeared.

Davis is our leading man in assists right now.... :shudder:

Thank goodness we're getting extra posessions off of steals and rebounds, otherwise we'd be in hot water right now. 35.3% shooting at the half...

It's hard to know how I feel about the defense tonight though... On the one hand, we held them to 37 points in a half. On the other, they shot 51.6% from the field.

Hey, we're still winning though! That's what counts :D

Slick was saying that Reggie had an elastic guard on his hand. He got pissed and took it off, throwing it into the stands. He's since hit two straight.

whats up with reggies 3PT accuracy.. only .310%.. thats a career low! Now i really do think he is geting old? :(

I think Reggie isn't too worried about that; I think he'd trade a 3-10 3-PT shooting night for a win any day...At least I would.

He's not shooting 30% for the night, he's shooting it for the season.

The ironic thing is that JO's "year to forget" (per the caption) is one of his finest ever, in terms of on-court play.

Bulls down 7 to the Nets with 8 minutes in the game left, if they lose we are only half a game out of 6th place.

I know that. I didn't even pay attention to the stat; I was just making a general statement. Sorry for the misunderstanding, Master Hicks.

03-16-2005, 10:45 PM
We are now half a game back of the Bulls for the number 6 spot

Same here. I actually like Foster playing big minutes now.

I want Dale Starting with JO next year, if he keeps up this play (and of course Dave isn't ready to go).

MSA2CF

I liked Dale/Jeff's scoring tonight. I kept thinking back to last year when we all wanted Jeff to find some kind of offensive game...I think he has found it to an extent this season.

I hope Jeff continues to drive to the basket more and more. he is a pretty good ball handler for a big guy and he is so quick

He only had 6 points. That's not really enough to get me excited (re: Jeff).
