Cavs would worry me the most, but we should still win in 5 or 6.

Van Horn also not playing? Shouldn't be a tough one here then unless some of their guys get hot from the outside. Like Damon Jones last time we played them =\

Sounds like either Kenny or AJ is going to get the start tonight in place of Tinsley

Not playing well against Milwaukee yet again.... :confused:

Southside_Pacer

Milwaukee shooting 60% too.....

And up by seven.......

Pacers look slugging in every phase of the game......

Southside_Pacer
03-30-2004, 10:05 PM
And now Milwaukee is up by ten....

We just look like crap in the second quarter pure and simple. JO now gets a technical. Pathetic effort in the 2nd quarter, especially on the defensive end.

Well Kenny probably would have played more if he hadn't picked up those three quick fouls.

The pacers should slow it down and defend.

Southside_Pacer
03-30-2004, 10:43 PM
Only down six.......we can get it down to four yet can never get over the hump.

They're still a little bit quicker getting to loose balls, and they're still getting too many open looks at the basket. If we want to win, we need consecutive stops and right now that's not happening.

Southside_Pacer
03-30-2004, 10:48 PM
Once again, not a very good quarter at all by the Pacers. We're slow reacting in this game. They're getting offensive boards, their ball movement is A LOT crisper (Pacers have NO ball movement) and they're having a heck of a lot more fun than the Pacers are right now.

We will NOT win this game if we continue to take long jump shots like we did in the third quarter. We have NO ball movement at all.

Consecutive stops on the defense end has to happen and now.

Tins is sitting out the game with the flu.

our point guards are pathetic tonight..

Yet another shot clock violation by the Pacers. We're still not chipping away at the lead as the Bucks are up by seven.

Milwaukee's shooting percentage is down in the second half yet they are easily winning the battle of the boards, especially on the offensive end.

Until we can get a string of defensive stops.....and right now I just don't see it happening. The Pacers haven't given me any reason to think they will.

Southside_Pacer
03-30-2004, 11:02 PM
We get it down to five, and we give up an open three to Kukoc to wind up being down by eight. That's pretty much the story of this game. Defensive breakdowns all over the place. Very discouraging. :shakehead:

JO gets blocked inside. However the ball gets back to him, and he calls timeout saving the possession. Twenty second timeout Pacers. Five seconds left on the shot clock.

Mason drew a foul on Harrington. Still can't get any defensive stops. I sound like such a broken record.

Ronnie makes a falling away jumper to beat the shot clock. Milwaukee answers yet again to put the Bucks up six.

Milwaukee did commit a foul on O'Neal trying to dunk. He'll head to the line for two.

Pacers finally get a stop, yet JO can't make the inside shot. Kukoc gets the board, gets fouled, makes 1/2. Milwaukee almost got the offensive board off the missed foul shot.
