34 PTS IN 24 MINS with 7 REBS and 7 OF 10 FROM 3 Pt land.

I feel bad, but he's really the only ex recent Pacer I've been really happy to see have a great game.

Who is this Austin you speak of? ;)

I'm with you on this one.

What a night: Pacers win, Warriors lose, and Cro goes off for 34. If only Artest had done something stupid publicly today.

Congrats to Austin, I love him but we still made a killing in that trade.

Yeah, great job Cro!

Austin was one of my favourite players ... besides Sarunas ofcourse.

If he were willing to sign back with us for the vet's minimum, would you take him back?

Yes. And I'm betting we do.

Actually I would too, and I am certainly hoping that he does.

I bet he gets more than the minimum.

I bet he gets more than the minimum.


Yeah, I'm betting he gets 3-4 mil per next year to be a lower-tier team's sixth man.

Good for Austin, I have always liked him as a player. I do think we made a good trade though.

Yes. And I'm betting we do.

Me too and would be happy as hell.

I've always liked Croshere, too. But I'm wondering, "Where the he!! was those 34 pts all the while he was here?" :confused: :(

Count me as someone who is:

1. Happy for Austin
2. Not surprised
3. Not impressed

He did this often with the Pacers. That is, putting up a great show every once in a while, and then fading to mediocrity. It took him half a season to have a good (great) game.

I was really wishing that we could find a way to S&T Austin after his 2000 playoff version of this Dallas game. His value is "streaky". Sometimes he almost looked worth his contract. Other times, it makes sense he's averaging around 3 ppg with Dallas.

I appreciate what he gave us here, but I wouldn't want here over anyone on our current roster ('cept Harrison).
Just my opinion

Brutal. :laugh: And funny, because it's exactly right.

maragin's take is correct, as well. Not surprising at all... Austin's got at least 3 of those games in him per year. This was one.

I'm also happy for Cro. Wow, 34pts! WTG. But I also know Cro enough to know he's streaky as hell. But having him at the vet min, that wouldn't be soo bad now would it?

I agree, but if you are a sarunas fan, what's up with your avatar?

Sarunas plays for the Pacers......hehehehe. He'll never leave.....HIM...on golden state, that's crazy........Right?.......RIGHT?

Happy for Austin. He always has one of these games at some point in the year. It's kind of upsetting that he never ammounted to much after 2000..but what should we really expect.
