Why can't dale guard him jeramaniac whats happending to dale. I belive he got Double D in foul trouble quick and he had to go out. Curry is just too big and quick, he is really putting on a show out there, I wouldnt be suprised if he got 45 points tonight.

ReggieMiller8325
03-26-2005, 10:12 PM
The bulls are going to need to have a bad quater.

Those are all of our points.

Mourning
03-26-2005, 10:14 PM
This is the first quarter of the 2nd night of a back-to-back and last night was against our arch-rivals of this time, so I can dig that he's probably a little tired or trying to get into the game as of now. If we can make it a little closer at the end of the 2nd half than we are at a decent point to start the 2nd half of the game. Jut my opinion though.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

ReggieMiller8325
03-26-2005, 10:16 PM
we just need to cut it to at least a 9 point game.

ReggieMiller8325

we can not play this bad come on pacers make a dam run.

Jermaniac
03-26-2005, 10:19 PM
We are just sucking on defense, we make a good play on offense and they come back and make 2 on us, we wont win a game like that.

Ragnar
03-26-2005, 10:48 PM
I think Reggie was tired and fed up after last night and wanted to get tossed. Plus it gives Freddie the chance to play more tonight and he is on fire. Not sure about Rick I dont think he meant to get tossed but after reading what Reggie said last night about Stern I am not suprised he got tossed.

Reggie getting tossed for what he said about Stern.

Hadn't thought of that and it would be so unbelievable I can't even imagine. If that was remotely true we might as well just forget about ever getting any fair calls or respect and just fold as a franchise any save the agony.

We just started in the 3rd Quarter. If it were not for Jack we would have been down 30 at halftime. He had just under half of our points in the first half.

If the rest of the team would have shown up before halftime we could have won this one.

I think I can find some good from this game.

Our guys showed a ton of heart. We came off an emotional game yesterday, leaving the Palace late in the night and went into Chicago and still competed till the dying seconds. Give our boys some credit.

Jack is clutch. Plain and simple. Just knowing that we will have another clutch shooter to fill in Reggie's place is very reassuring. And just think about the wide open shots he is going to get next year when Tinsley/Artest/Jermaine are back on the floor. Tonight he was getting doubled and tripled...but when those 3 are back, they can't do that anymore!

Mike Brown is a hell of an assistant. I really hope he stays...really, REALLY hope he stays.

Lord Helmet
03-27-2005, 12:07 AM

Our guys showed a ton of heart. We came off an emotional game yesterday, leaving the Palace late in the night and went into Chicago and still competed till the dying seconds. Give our boys some credit.

Jack is clutch. Plain and simple. Just knowing that we will have another clutch shooter to fill in Reggie's place is very reassuring. And just think about the wide open shots he is going to get next year when Tinsley/Artest/Jermaine are back on the floor. Tonight he was getting doubled and tripled...but when those 3 are back, they can't do that anymore!

Mike Brown is a hell of an assistant. I really hope he stays...really, REALLY hope he stays.
Would you like to have my title of "Mr.Positve" ?

I don't blame them for shooting it so much, with all our low post options out. Although, I wish Fred would drive to the basket more.

After every loss, "God we wold win if we hda Reggie?" ROFL, I cant imagine him next year I dont know how he is going to handle it.

No thanks. That means I'll have to change my entire strategy for the guess the score contests....

I didn't mean anything negative toward you at all. All the bad things that seem happen to us, the strange calls, I'm just overly paranoid sometimes.

Did not think you did. I just wanted to point out I was not saying that the league sent down a memo saying kick Reggie out.
