Man, thinking back, this will be the first time ever Jeff, JO, Ron, and Jackson have all started together. And the first time Jeff, JO, and Ron have started together since the 2004 Eastern Conference Finals!

Hicks
12-04-2005, 08:10 PM
Also, why is it when Austin and Jermaine start, Austin always gets listed as PF and JO at C (rightly so), but when Jeff starts he's listed as the C?

It is kinda weird to think that it's taken all this time to get to this lineup, isn't it?

That is how the lineup has always been listed when Jeff and JO start together, plus Jeff usually guards the other team's center to help keep JO from getting in foul trouble. But I agree, they could just as easily be listed the other way around in the lineup. Neither is a true center in the usual sense of the term. :shrug:

Sarunas and Ron Ron will smoke both their defenders. (Ridnour & Lewis)
Jermaine might struggle. I like this starting 5.

For the poll question, I'd truly like to see Tinsley as the starting PG by the end of the season because that would mean:

a) He's playing within more of a team concept.
b) He's actually healthy by the end of the season!

Fred tries to hit to many threes. Ever since last year when he said he wants to win the 3 point challenge at all star weekend hes trying to hit threes consistently but its jus not him. Stick to what your good at.

This is exactly the kind of guy Ron has a hard time guarding... tall, long players that can shoot over him. Remember a couple years ago against the Nets? He could tie up Kenyon Martin, but had all kinds of trouble against Keith Van Horn.

Ronnie SUCKS when he tries to force his offense like this. Between that and Seattle's bigs hitting whatever crap they toss near the basket this comeback has died.

Seattle's allowed to push off defenders with elbows 25 feet from the basket for some reason.

Anthem
12-04-2005, 10:49 PM
Weird... all of the Pacers are shooting a good percentage (except Fred), and our defense isn't too bad. The only place we're getting beaten is rebounds. In rebounds, though, we're getting killed, 39-26. No single Seattle guy is pulling them in, but they have 4 guys with at least 5.

Anthem
12-04-2005, 10:51 PM
Well, Slick said we'd win if we held Allen and Lewis to 40 points between them. After 3, they have 39.

AJ isn't even playing good defense. Rick isn' going with his defensive lineup, he's going with his veteran-but-worthless aproach.

Nutshell:

Sarunas was having a terrific game, but Rick has wasted it by not playing him in the 4th until 5:55 left (he went out a couple minutes before the 3rd ended).
Seattle is hitting all kinds of tough shots around the basket.
They're also hitting plenty of 3's.
They're out rebounding us badly (a lot of long rebounds that they sprint to and snag).
They're getting a lot of steals. Part good team D, part Ron Artest (and sometimes others) trying to play 1 on 5 offense.

Rick, AJ and Fred are the reason we are losing this game. Fred is 0-4 from 3 point range. He just doesnt get that hes not going to be a good three point shooter and he should stick to dunks. Aj loses the ball or misses a shot at the worst possible times. And Rick is not putting out our hottest shooter. I really feel sorry for Saras coming here.

So, the typical -- playing AJ way too much and not rebounding the ball. Sounds about right.

Beats me. But Jack just checked in so I have to guess it was giving Stephen a breather.

I might put a counter on how many times Rick says "I made the wrong choices near the end of the game" or around them lines.

Yup so this game he gets the "Im not that mad because you've got your pinky wrapped with your ring finger" treatment but when theyre off and he clears em as 100% , then there will be absolutely no excuse.

This loss sucks..of course they all do but I hate LOSING WINNABLE GAMES!
I loved how Rick finally put Runi in the game at the end and saw us start coming back oh yeah Runi has hit 18-of-28 from the 3-point line (64.3 percent) in the last seven games. .....

I'm starting to get quite a few revenge dates already:
Jan 2nd vs Sonics
Jan 11th vs Bucks
March 30th vs Suns

well atleast we're back home tuesday :)
