Two fouls on Wayne, and Al Albert said he may have just picked up a technical.

Great defense by JO to get the block, great pass by Tins on the fast break, great flush by Ron.

No technical on Wade. Although if it were Ron, he would have gotten one. Wade just got schooled on some moves by veterans.

In a few years he can do those tricks.

I still don't understand why we're seeing Croshere over Bender in this situation.

O'Neal with two fouls. We gotta make better decisions with the ball, ie passing. We still look very rusty. Not a good quarter so far by the Pacers at all.

First quarter = :unimpressed:

Need to tighten down on their dribble penetration. We need to do much better on the glass, still giving them too many second chance looks.

We need to handle the ball better. We're just really making bad decisions with the ball, either passes, driving the baseline when there's no room, etc.

Now that is a play we did luck out on. Jones made an ugly play look pretty with that three pointer as the shot clock was winding down.

We seem to be too hyped. We just gotta settle down, get loose, and play some ball. It's as if we all have corks in our you know whats.

No excuses for getting outrebounded, and outworked. THIS HAS TO GET FIXED.

JO's gotta make his free throws. We're dropping some points from the charity stripe.

I like how he's getting there and drawing the fouls, but we gotta make those freebies.

Still are not playing well at all.

Man! we have got to play better. I wish we wouldn't have had so much success with the one on one crap in game 1. We are doing to much today!

When we penetrate and dish for the easy layup/dunk or spot up jumper, we are at our best!

Move the ball on offense and stop giving up offensive rebounds and this game will be fun again!

Having to get a miracle three from Reg tells me we are not playing well enough!

Keeping the faith for the second half.

Ok, let's get JO on the bench now as soon as possible, I'm nervous the way everyone's been getting bumped up out there

Haslem with the little shove with the elbow against Ron, T'd up

Now Van Gundy blows his top, gets T'd up too

C'mon Coach!! Get the starters out of the game before some 2nd team J.A. from the Heat gets one of our guys hurt or technical!!

Our bench is good enough to finish this out.

I know we are trying to get a rhythm back, BUT ITS NOT WORTH THE RISK!!!!
