It's too easy to say 1-2, so I'm going to be a pessimist and say we'll lose out the rest of the year. My head says 1-2, though. :shrug:

Since when do we have a white guy named O'Neal, and a black guy named Foster? ;)

I think we'll go 2-1. Split this Texas 2, then pound Toronto.

If SJax isn't suspended... who did the Pacers bribe?

Could the violation have been any more visible? Surely he was fined...

the league offices were closed during the weekend. Maybe they're reviewing it now, and will suspend him for tomorrow's game.

And this is why we don't start Croshere.

No real backup plans

Our rebounding is shockingly bad.

Why even bother?

NBA Fines Jackson $20,000

NBA News Release | New York, Dec. 26, 2005 The Indiana Pacers' Stephen Jackson has been fined $20,000 for making an obscene gesture following an ejection, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Senior Vice President Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 10.8 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of the Pacers 94-89 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, Dec. 23 at Quicken Loans Arena.

Three shot attempts for the Mavs on one possession.

I think I'm going to puke.

indytoad
12-26-2005, 08:57 PM
It seems like we always start games getting outrebounded.

And enter halftime getting outrebounded...and finish the game getting outrebounded...

If this is the kind of effort they're going to display, they might as well just go home.

IndyToad
Number three?!

12-26-2005, 08:58 PM
the loose balls / long rebounds are all going to dallas

J_2_Da_IzzO
12-26-2005, 08:58 PM
This is a reoccuring problem. We ALWAYS start games with no intention of rebounding or even challenging boards. This is a problem thats persisted from the beginning of the year and hasnt been highlighted or fixed yet.

317Kim
12-26-2005, 08:59 PM
ANOTHER EFFIN TO! AJ had walked.
Yup AJ and Fred are in

Some things are given. AJ taking the last shot and Foster not being able to handle a pass. He's dropped two so far.

AJ had never passed it out of that play.

By the way, doesn't our team know that Devin Harris can play? He's a pretty darn good bench player.????

indytoad
12-26-2005, 09:09 PM
Our bench is terrible.

I have a hard time believing they could be worse than our starters, but they manage somehow.

IndyToad
Red tagged

317Kim
12-26-2005, 09:09 PM
NO, AJ hasn't hit that shot for a good 3-7 games.

but Harris needs to be CONTAINED!!!

waterjater
12-26-2005, 09:11 PM
Why doesn't Pollard play?? He's in such better shape than Foster right now. Foster still needs a lot of work to get back to his best, which probably isn't good enough.

Our team should be doing what we do best and that is move the ball and cut to the hoop like Devin harris is doing to us!!!

Will Galen
12-26-2005, 09:11 PM
Our players had the weekend off, you would think that would effect there shooting not their defense.

317Kim
12-26-2005, 09:12 PM
down 10.
OUTTA BOUNDS! OUR BALL!
FRED WERE NEEDIN A SPARK!

waterjater

what happened to our good ball movement? we look hurried and out of synch on offense and lost on defense tonight

indytoad
12-26-2005, 09:13 PM

Meh. They're playing against one of the better teams in the West on their home floor. It's not going to go well. Even if they were a good team they'd have trouble.

IndyToad
Errant

317Kim
12-26-2005, 09:13 PM
Yahoo sports said Scot was injured but I've heard nothing of it.
I think Jeff needs to practice with the team more so he'll know when to expect the ball.

317Kim
12-26-2005, 09:14 PM
Nice pass by Fred.
AJ! FOR 3!!!
maybe not.

317Kim

Down 8.

12-26-2005, 09:17 PM
ok so the Cavs beat the bulls.
and the bucks are down 87-100 with a good 2 mins to go in the 4th.
WE NEED TO WIN TO STAY CLOSE TO THE CAVS and GAIN SPACE IN FRONT OF THE BUCKS!

Are we still playing him at SG?

Will Galen
12-26-2005, 09:28 PM
WOW.

What a BS call on Saras.

:mad:

And Rick yanks him. I think Rick's defence sucks. New York clobbered us on the boards, now the Mavs are doing it. Every time a shot goes up there seems to be one Pacer and 4 Mavs battling for the ball.

317Kim
12-26-2005, 09:29 PM
Cro hits a pair of FTs and were down 7..not bad..lets get it down to 3 or 4 before the break, come out strong in the 3rd :)

Will Galen
12-26-2005, 09:30 PM
Saras shoots great off the dribble. Rick has him at shooting guard spotting up.

Why does it take Rick so long to see what everyone else sees?

Perhaps , Tinsley and Saras need to be at the 1 spot, that is clear..

Now do you bring Tinsley off the bench ? .. do you trade tinsley? or do you have Saras come of the bench at the point..? although I like having both on the floor , like Ford and Williams in Milwaukee.. I am just not sure if that is going to work in this current offense ??

Both bring different value to the team..

You trade Tinsley because his immaturity ends up too much of a minus for the team IMHO...

Finally, Tinsley hits a running lay in.

But then Terry just jacks up a three and of course it goes in.

Bringing Tinsley from the bench would cause Tinsley eternal state of clinical depression...

I just dont think this team plays with the passion and ferocity that is required of good NBA teams. They seem to get outhustled and generally dont seem to care about it with perhaps the exception of JO, Runi, and maybe Granger. I think thats our biggest problem, and maybe this isnt the time or thread to be talking about this but its starting to really bother me. I cant remember a seeing a worse rebounding squad.

Lord Helmet
12-26-2005, 10:02 PM
My God has Sarunas been in a slump.

He just airballed another three. :(

Dirk is 7'0?? and Cro is 6'11 why does their look like such a HUGE height dif??

There really isnt anything wrong with our defense except we cant get a damn rebound. Dallas is shooting about 43 percent from the field, that should be an acomplishment. The problem is they have 13 more shots than us.

Our lack of centers that Rick agrees to play sounds like it is killing us. Trade Ron for PJ Brown.

JT at the line. were 8-12 but the mavs have been at the line 21 times

Heres 2 things I have noticed since the begining of the season that are the main problems for this team:

(1) We more often then not start games with no intensity on the boards therefore giving teams 2nd/3rd/4th chance points as we have today.

(2) In EVERY game we go into a little spell of about 5 missed 3 pointers in a row leading to the opposing team making buckets as we continue to jack up 3s when it is not needed.

Iv always said I wanted Vince or Corey for Artest but if we could somehow get someone that is a TOUGH player and always looks for boards on both ends this team will be an automatic worry for Detroit in the playoffs. Players like Camby, Ben and Howard seem to always hustle and fight for boards.

I think I may be repeating what someone else said, but Saras is a point guard. He should either start or back up Tins...whichever, I don't flipping care. Just push AJ out of the Pt Guard rotation!

Fred Jones should start at shooting guard!

Foster, until he gets his game back, needs to SIT!!!

Lastly, Doesn't anyone realize that Devin Harris is good??? For fux sake, nobody seems to guard him?! or can guard him!! He was the big ten player of the year or runner up!

EVERY PLAYER THAT HAS LOAFED his *** in this game should be BENCHED...ENOUGH OF THIS ****! Outrebounded by freaking offensive minded Dallas.!

WTF Does AJ ever ****ing play!

I'd love for Fred to start but I think he's important off the bench. Either way, as long as he plays well..I guess I'm okay.

15-10??? PLEASE NO! All thats left is to ask for a miracle.
thatd mean the cavs were a game ahead of us and we'd be tied with the bucks in the CD.

Dallas 102, Indiana 80

By JAIME ARON, AP Sports Writer
December 27, 2005

DALLAS (AP) -- Between Devin Harris swishing a 20-footer that was supposed to be a pass and Jerry Stackhouse taking off for a powerful dunk that showed how healthy his knee is, the Dallas Mavericks moved to the top of the Western Conference with a flourish Monday night.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 23 points and Harris added 12 of his 20 in a first-quarter run that sent the Mavericks racing past the Indiana Pacers 102-80 in a game that was never close in the second half.

The victory improved Dallas to 21-7, matching the San Antonio Spurs for the best record in the West. The Mavericks earned this one by simply outworking the Pacers -- grabbing 14 of the first 18 rebounds, taking 11 of the first 12 free throws and snatching seven of the first eight steals.

"We seemed to have a lot of energy tonight," Dallas coach Avery Johnson said. "I gave them (two days) off and they gave me one back by responding with energy and concentration pretty much throughout the whole game. It's pretty rare for us to play that long of a stretch of good basketball."

The Mavericks have won 11 of 13, with both losses to the Lakers in games when Kobe Bryant scored 43 and 62 points. And they've done it without having the top of their expected rotation playing together at all this season.

Stackhouse, playing only his second game, had 15 points in 19 minutes, but it came with Keith Van Horn out because of the flu and Marquis Daniels missing his third straight with a neck problem. Josh Howard, who had 12 points and 10 rebounds, hurt his lower back and was examined by team doctors in the locker room afterward.

"It got to the point where I couldn't move," he said.

The Pacers lost their second straight and fell to 5-3 since making Ron Artest inactive. They'll try to avoid an 0-3 road trip Tuesday night in San Antonio. The starters will have plenty of energy, as none played more than 35 minutes, with coach Rick Carlisle emptying the bench with 6:43 left.

Indiana led 2-0, then never again. The Pacers were down only nine at halftime, but a few minutes into the third quarter the deficit hit 10 and kept growing, peaking at 29. They had 11 turnovers by halftime, four of them traveling, en route to their second-biggest loss of the season.

"They played great and we didn't give them much of a game tonight," Carlisle said. "Our margin for error is slim. We can't have any slippage. Our rebounding was a disappointment. We've got to do better."

Jermaine O'Neal led Indiana with 15 points. Stephen Jackson and Jamaal Tinsley scored 12 and Austin Croshere 11.

The Mavericks finished with a 49-30 rebounding edge, despite a season-low two from Nowitzki. Erick Dampier tied his season high with 14 boards; he had 10 at halftime, more than he'd had in any of his previous five games.

"We had chances early, but they hurt us on the offensive boards," Croshere said. "They get out on the break and we feed that when we turn the ball over like we did.' ... It's hard to get anything out of a game like this. We've got a big character game tomorrow in San Antonio."

The game was tied at 16 when Harris entered. He made 6-of-7 shots the rest of the quarter, leading a 15-7 run that included a basket on what was meant to be an alley-oop pass to Stackhouse. Harris sheepishly held up three fingers in hopes of it being ruled a 3-pointer. He did his best to hide a grin, slightly shaking his head as if saying he couldn't believe what had happened.

"It's happened before," Harris said. "I guess I'm not that good of a lob passer."

Playing at home for the first time this season, Stackhouse entered to a nice ovation midway through the first quarter. Late in the third, he had a burst of eight of Dallas' 10 points, starting with a jumper then driving through the defense and leaping over two Pacers for a dunk that got most in the building on their feet.

He was headed to the rim again the next time down the court and was taken down hard by Fred Jones. He made a steal on the other end soon after.

"Hopefully this is the start of something really good for me," he said.

Notes

This was Dallas' biggest margin of victory ever against Indiana. ... The Pacers' worst loss this season was by 32 to Charlotte on Nov. 16. ... Nowitzki didn't have a rebound until the 33rd of his 34 minutes. ... Stackhouse has a 360-piece tub of bubble gum that he put in his locker when the season began. He'd almost finished it before finally getting into the lineup ... Indiana lists Artest as being inactive because of a "sore right wrist."
