Jack needs to post up Gordon everytime he gets the ball

GetOdom
01-14-2006, 07:43 PM
Jack is not a post-up player he's a shooter... plus I think Grang will guard Gordon most of the time.

Jermaniac

Jack is not a post-up player he's a shooter... plus I think Grang will guard Gordon most of the time.You happen to see the Warriors game? Jack was posting up every damn time he got the ball. If someone is smaller then you, you post them up. Does it matter what kind of player you are.

Ohh and thank you for describing Jack for me I have never seen him play before. On my TV he is invisable.

Is Harrison supposed to stay around the High Post when the team is on offense?

He hovers out there most of the time until the ball is in the air.

For the love of God take that slow hunchback wildebeest looking thing you call a PG out of the game. Why Sarunas isnt starting is beyond me. Rick Carlisle is the man WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO. Great coach.

Yep like I said earlier, we would get out worked. Teams look like its life or death for them when they play us, our guys look like its a pick up game at the YMCA.

Foster!

Foster is the only guy in the paint that can hustle......he's getting closer to his regular self for us.....

Jermaniac
01-14-2006, 09:05 PM
Fred Jones with one of his trademark jump in the air and turn the ball over moves. This guy seriously needs to get that out of his game.

Its okay guys we can afford to lose game like this. We are deep. No need to bring in another player that can help our guys cause Golly we are so deep. Keep our guys waiting Walsh and keep watching us lose. But thats okay losing is good when you are deep.

Moses
01-14-2006, 09:11 PM
We really need Tinsley back for good.

Stephen Jackson needs to learn when its time to pass the ball.

SARAS!!!

Why is AJ playing at all?

Sarunas with 2 awesome assists!!!!

Lord Helmet

Wow.

IT'D BE NICE TO REBOUND.

Monster slam by the Great One

CableKC
01-14-2006, 09:18 PM
Okay...I'm waiting for Sarunas to get us back in the game....then watch Carlisle put AJ back in...then lose us the game.

Jermaniac
01-14-2006, 09:19 PM
What a retarded *** pass

CableKC
01-14-2006, 09:19 PM
Rule of thumb for everyone......when Sarunas has the ball....expect to get it...no matter where you are.....

Jermaniac
01-14-2006, 09:21 PM
Rule of thumb for everyone......when Sarunas has the ball....expect to get it...no matter where you are.....No Jerry Rice wouldnt have caught that one. Please stop acting like the guy is God and makes no mistakes. That was a bad pass.

ghost
01-14-2006, 09:24 PM
Saras to Foster. Simple.

Lord Helmet
01-14-2006, 09:24 PM
Oh, great. JO's hurt.

****.

CableKC
01-14-2006, 09:24 PM
No Jerry Rice wouldnt have caught that one. Please stop acting like the guy is God and makes no mistakes. That was a bad pass.
Admittedly....the pass was a bit too fast and slightly behind his back. But he is doing better then AJ right now. Also...when did I say he doesn't make mistakes?

What happened to JO?

Lord Helmet
01-14-2006, 09:28 PM
What happened to JO?
He hurt his right ankle. Or one of his ankles.

He at first needed help to get up, but started to walk it off to the lockerroom.

CableKC
01-14-2006, 09:28 PM
Jermaine is hurt, well there goes all our offense
That just means that SJax and AJ will take and miss more shots.

Fireball Kid
01-14-2006, 09:28 PM
What happened? I can't see the game(watching Mavs vs. Nets on LiveSports).

Moses

Don't forget Fred Jones.

Jermaniac
01-14-2006, 09:29 PM
The refs want us to win but our offense is so bad that we cant

Moses
01-14-2006, 09:31 PM
Maybe we need to trade for Kobe. At least he makes some of the 4000 shots he takes.

Jermaniac

How in the hell did Tyson Chandler get 70 million?

Lord Helmet

Another weak, pathetic call on Harrison.

Lord Helmet
01-14-2006, 09:34 PM
There's our point guard AJ, turning it over.

Sarunas is now back at SG, I presume....

To bad he doesn't have a Shaq mask. He would have gotten away with it.

the good ol' aj shoots and misses in the last seconds play

I missed it... did he dribble out the clock again and take the shot or receive a pass?

I'm hoping one of these days Carlisle will hold a practice where, if he wants AJ shooting that last second shot, he'll design a play where AJ gives it up and then gets it back for the shot.

Seeing as I can't watch the game I'll ask here. Is JO still out or was it something he walked off?

CableKC
01-14-2006, 09:55 PM
According to the announcers....Slight ankle sprain for JONeal....he's doubtful for the rest of the game.

efx
01-14-2006, 09:55 PM
Ok, thank you!

Lord Helmet
01-14-2006, 09:58 PM
JO has a mild sprain of the left ankle.

Doubtful to return.

Sorry, too slow....

JO's out...

We'll win... (or make a game out of it)
And the questions will arise again.

Look at our team what was supposed to be a title contender. The 2nd half we start Jackson, Cro, Harrison, AJ, Granger. 1 actual starter!

Moses
01-14-2006, 10:16 PM
I can't beleive we actually took the lead. The refs are really giving it to us tonight.

We play better basketball without JO. How often do we have to see it before we admit it?

I don't know 'why' it is... I only know it 'is'.

-Bball

CableKC
01-14-2006, 10:24 PM
When SJax shot isn't dropping as much....he's driving to the hoop more. He's 11-13 from the FT line.

If SJax played more games like this.....where he drives more to the hoop to draw fouls like he is doing now.....I would live with his streaky shooting from the field.

CableKC
01-14-2006, 10:28 PM
Granger should have a little bit more confidence in his shot.....he was wide open there....

Frank Slade
01-14-2006, 10:29 PM

I just flipped off the Pats/Broncs game to see the end of the Pacers' game.

AJ hit a tough shot over the back of his head to put the Pacers up 91-89. Ben Gordan hit a running layup at the buzzer, but the ball was still in his hand when the clock hit 0:00. Pacers win. :)

rel
01-14-2006, 11:09 PM
the ball was passed in to Gordon behind the 3 pt line, ben drove it in by fred jones and tossed it up over granger.

...although the ball was clearly still in ben's palm at the buzzer...end of the game

Frank Slade
01-14-2006, 11:09 PM
quick recap please..

yahoo scoreboard just froze at 2.5 sec.

Ben Gordon drives it to just to the right of the Goal, puts up a shot in air Clock hits Zero and the Board lights up before the ball is released ... no basket.... Pacers win.....

Indiana 91, Chicago 89

January 15, 2006

CHICAGO (AP) -- Stephen Jackson and the Pacers have been through enough adversity that when Jermaine O'Neal went down with a sprained ankle in the first half nobody panicked.

Jackson scored 21 of his 29 points in the second half and delivered a key assist to Anthony Johnson with 3.9 seconds remaining to send the short-handed Indiana Pacers to a 91-89 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.

"This team has been through all kinds of situations. Jermaine's been out, Jamaal (Tinsley) been out. This team has learned to deal with anything," Jackson said. "Guys don't worry about who's out there. We know how to compete."

Already without Ron Artest, who has been inactive for the last month, the Pacers had another setback. O'Neal sprained his left ankle with 6:46 left in the second quarter and never returned to the bench. O'Neal attempted to block Kirk Hinrich's shot and landed on Hinrich's foot. O'Neal will be re-evaulated on Sunday.

With the score tied at 89 with 8.7 seconds to go, Indiana called a timeout. As time ticked down, Jackson held the ball on the left side and then found Johnson cutting to the basket. He hit the shot and was fouled by Ben Gordon. Johnson missed the free throw, and the Bulls called a timeout.

"I was trying to get the last shot, that's what Rick (Carlisle) told me. That was my main focus. But A.J. (Johnson) made a heads-up play. His man (Gordon) got caught sleeping and he made a back-door play," said Jackson.

The Bulls just missed a chance to send the game into overtime. Gordon drove to the hoop and made the basket, but the officials quickly waved it off because it came after the buzzer. The call was upheld after the officials watched the replay.

Gordon said he was concentrating on Jackson when Johnson went to the hoop.

"I was kind of watching to see what Jackson did. Then he caught me looking at Jackson too long. Johnson came right under the hoop and got the layup," Gordon said.

Jeff Foster and Austin Croshere each added 12 points off the bench for Indiana, and Johnson had 10.

Leading 81-79 with 4:40 left, Indiana extended its lead on Fred Jones' 3-pointer. Danny Granger then hit a long jumper to put the Pacers up 86-79 with 3:03 left.

Chicago closed within three with 1:15 to play. Andres Nocioni had a three-point play and Gordon got open for a jumper. Jackson answered for Indiana with a basket, but Nocioni converted a three-point play for Chicago to cut the deficit to two.

After Granger missed a shot, Hinrich picked up the loose ball and was fouled. He hit two free throws with 8.7 seconds left to tie it at 89.

The Pacers trailed by 12 early in the third quarter but managed to stay in it by getting to the free throw line. They finished 30-for-39 after attempting only 15 free throws in a loss to Washington on Friday night.

"We had a nice rhythm going. We just started fouling. We had about 10 more field goals at the half, yet it was still a game. Usually you are running away with a game like that. It is obviously a big problem," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said.

Nocioni finished with 15 points and eight rebounds for Chicago. Darius Songaila added 14 points.

Indiana outscored Chicago 21-5 during a 7-minute span in the third quarter. Jackson started with a dunk and Croshere followed with back-to-back 3s. Jackson had a three-point play to give Indiana a 64-60 lead with 3:33 left. Jackson scored nine points during the run and had 14 points and three steals in the quarter.

Bulls forward Tyson Chandler, who signed a six-year, $63 million contract in the offseason, was scoreless in 4 minutes and picked up five fouls.

Luol Deng finished with 12 points and seven rebounds for Chicago, and Gordon had 13 points.

Notes

Tinsley was inactive with a torn right biceps and lingering soreness in his right elbow. He has missed eight straight games and 15 total this season due to an assortment of injuries. ... O'Neal scored 12 points and had five rebounds before leaving the game.

I just remember turning on ESPNEWS while watching the Pats lose (hehe) and seeing that the Pacers were down by 3 with just a little time left. I checked again for the final score and we had one by 2. I watched Sports Center for 3 straight hours trying to get some highlights, but they never showed any :(
