The Pacers' offense is horrendous. It's the same thing every time. They just keep vainly setting picks for each other and accomplish nothing. Meanwhile, everyone else just stands around or runs around randomly. After doing that for a bit, they pass it to a player who procedes to go one-on-one.

gilpdawg
12-14-2005, 09:36 PM
You've gotta show your X-rays to get a foul called in this game apparently. And Heinsohn is in rare form tonight. He complained about both travelling calls on Jefferson. I missed the first play, as I was in the men's room, but the second was a CLEAR travel. I need a radio........I need Mark and Slick, and I think I'll go do that now. Too bad there's a 15 or so second delay on Sirius.

Oh, you mean the same offense as last year right? If Rick encourages this, he needs to go, and I like Rick. I can't imagine that he likes seeing that, but it never changes, and hasn't for the last two or three years. Happens at least every other game.

We NEED a decent player like Pierce, Harrington or Odom in return whatever it takes and whoever else we need to give. I dont want Pietrus or any other names mentioned. We NEED another scorer that when Jermaine is off like tonight he can take the load.

If we dont then sadly we are not a contender. God I hope we get one of those 3 players.

I've never seen a team with so much offensive talent struggle to score as often as the Pacers do.

I lay most of the blame on Carlisle. He has NO idea how to coach a talented team. Of course it doesn't help that the average basketball IQ of all our players is about 5.

Sigh. This team blows.

Agreed. Rick is way too cautious, which keeps him from seeing the obvious (ie this team needs to run, AJ is a horrible basketball player, rebounds are rather important, etc). It's good for getting the most out of a talentless team, but not a good one. Not sure who we can upgrade to, though - how did SVG run his team? He always struck me as a cautious guy as well.

I'm starting to think this may be truth.. I mean, coach tells then what play they must perform on each attack (that's what the write).. this is not very creative.. and what did JO tell just recently that this team is not about running and stuff? why did they buy Jasikevicius then..

I think Pierce loves not having Artest on this team. Without him the P's won't be able to stop anyone, so if they can't improve the offense, they're going to

S

U

C

K

even more than they already do. Also looks like Sarunas is coming back down to earth again.

We really needed to start rebuilding a couple years ago.

I have to agree. The offense is WAY too predictable. And with the offense struggling as much as it does, you'd think Carlisle would abandon his strategy of transition D and actually try for offensive rebounds.

Jermaine O'Neal has had a very poor game. He has looked completely complacent.

Then again, so has most of the team for most of the game.

So much for the theory that without Artest this team was suddenly going to turn it around and stop being babies.

I hate sucking.

Well we were due, I guess. Pacers have been pretty decent for a while now.

Karma dictates a decade of suck in this situation, I believe.

Funny, this team has one bad game, and all of the sudden we are a "gutter" team.

**** happen in the NBA.

Now if this becomes a trend.............................................

Uhhh...the Pacers have had a ton of these games so far this season.

Or were you being sarcastic?

My detector is busted.

We do not suck.I agree Hicks, but thats just people on here. After every loss we suck, after every win we have the MVP on our team and we are going to the Finals.

judging by todays FG percentage next game for the Pacers should be 100+

whatever, with so much games in one season..

The team does not suck. They have the talent. No one's arguing that. It's the offense and decision making that sucks. Maybe diagram some different plays every once in a while. That might do something.

No, I was being sarcastic.

Even with all "these" games as you put it, we are still at the top of the eastern confrence.

I dont know why i waste my time coming in these threads any more after loses. As soon as we win the next game Ill see the same people (thats you Mr.Darkside) saying "NBA world champions" and "we cant be stopped"

I have gotten used to this from Toad, he has always been Mr.Negative.

But the rest of you are comical. We win the last two games without Ronnie and there is nothing bad said, then we lose the one after we find out he is going to be gone (god forbid we just have a off night...) and all of the sudden "we suck" and are "mediocre"....

If being in the top 3 is mediocre, I want the Redskins to be medicore every freaking season.
Great post. Next win, all of them are going to say I never lost faith I knew we are good.

GO!!!!!
12-14-2005, 11:11 PM
It's not about losing, I'm not gonna hate if we lose twenty in a row, just some teams I hate it when we lose to and Boston is one of em..

Boston, NY, Lakers & Pistons...

HATE LOSING !!!!

va, Jermaniac, I agree with both of you. A lot of people around here are way too fickle for my tastes.

I got my tv working about halfway through. It was good to see David play, and I thought the team tried hard. Just couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

Anyone think they did not give max effort to raise Artest's value going into the next few days? I know this, they did not look like they were trying at times.

Also, WTF was DH on the bench for? We are not putting in enough beef to own the paint. I thought David played OK for a stretch. He changes the game in the interior. Is that not being recognized? Doesn't he need time on the court to develop his game?

12-14-2005, 11:49 PM
I don't know how much maxing you can do at this point. It could be
a good sign if they didn't need too. Maybe the trade talks are going
better than expected and they are weighing their options. OR thats
a whole lot crap falling out of my mouth. I tend to stray towards
the positive thinking.

So, people think we played well tonight?

I personally thought we "sucked" tonight, because we had many turnovers and a bad offensive night, and just didn't play well as a whole.

When I said, "I hate sucking" I meant it as for the game, tonight. I didn't mean it as we suck as a whole.

I just get tired of losing badly.

Maybe that was why I was so cranky......

Boston 85, Indiana 71

December 14, 2005

BOSTON (AP) -- The Celtics took advantage of the short-handed Indiana Pacers.

Paul Pierce had 25 points and seven rebounds to lead Boston over the Pacers 85-71 Wednesday night.

Indiana's Ron Artest missed his third consecutive game, and second since requesting a trade last weekend. The Pacers were also without guard Jamaal Tinsley and forward Austin Croshere, who were both out with injuries.

"I wouldn't say (missing Artest) was the problem," Indiana guard Anthony Johnson said. "You can credit their defense or our lack of execution."

Mark Blount added a season-high 22 points for the Celtics, who snapped a two-game skid in their first home game since Dec. 2.

Boston had its best defensive effort of the season, holding Indiana to a season low in points. The Pacers shot just 32.5 percent from the field and Jermaine O'Neal was held to 14 points after scoring at least 20 in seven consecutive games.

"We stayed pretty consistent on defense," Pierce said. "We were able to smother O'Neal, didn't let him get off to his usual All-Star self. We covered well, and that was the key."

The Celtics went on an 8-0 run to start the second quarter and took a 30-21 lead on Al Jefferson's layup with 9:13 left in the half. The Pacers missed their first 11 field-goal attempts of the second quarter, including a dunk by O'Neal, before Stephen Jackson's layup broke the drought with 4:33 left in the half.

"When we had good shots, we couldn't get them to go," Indiana coach Rick Carlisle said. "We weren't good enough tonight, and they were very good, really, for the whole game."

Delonte West's 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the half extended the Celtics' lead to 47-31 at the break.

Jackson had 18 points and Johnson added 14 for the Pacers.

Sarunas Jasikevicius and Jackson sparked an 11-2 run to open the third quarter as the Pacers pulled to 49-42.

But Pierce and Blount responded with a pair of jumpers as the Celtics pulled away. Pierce then made a 3-pointer with 7:32 left in the game to extend the lead to 70-56.

"We got key stops and we made key baskets," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said.

Jefferson had eight points and six rebounds for the Celtics.

Notes

The 71 points allowed by the Celtics was their lowest point total allowed since an 89-65 win over Philadelphia on March 28, 2004. ... The Pacers came in as one of only three Eastern Conference teams with a winning road record. ... G Marcus Banks will be activated in time for Boston's game against Milwaukee on Friday. ... Jackson and Jasikevicius made all of Indiana's field goals from 2:25 left in the first quarter until Johnson's jumper with 8:34 left in the third quarter.
