in my humble opionion the shot looks good, if i was a Spurs Fan i'd be wondering why there was no dude on the in bound passer... thats seems to be more of a fundamental mistake...

There was a lot of people commenting on that exact thing after the game

Love Jeff's effort out there tonight, top-notch :)

In my opinion, Pacers looking lousy again. Not enough ball movement and our defense is better but not good enough.

How in the flip does Wade keep going to the line while Oneal doesn't. The refs have forgotten what the "and 1" is when the Pacers have the ball.

Artest, Harrington and AJ bring the offense to a grinding halt!

Damnit, we better play better or this series is over.

I really don't like the isos the Pacers have run. Those haven't resulted in much scoreboard activity.

Amen to that. They're not so bad when you watch a Kobe or McGrady doing it, but the Pacers don't have that kind player. Another thing I've noticed that Miami just crowds the lane one the drive on the iso begins. The Pacers aren't rotating back to the strong side very well and nobody is kicking the ball back out (almost, JO did twice I think).

But yeah, watching isolation basketball gets pretty old if that's all a team runs.

is there something you want to tell us Joneal7 I mean like get off your chest about the heat fans...

I'm a Clinical Physcolgist and BC is in Boston and remembers the pain from last year.... we can help you if you need it, I mean realise the pain you have inside and help you to overcome your fears and so when your near some Heat Fans next you'll know how to make them SUCK ON IT !!

He went to the games in Miami and was given a bunch of crap for being a Pacers fan.

EDIT - besides, all the Heat fans will disappear once they're knocked out of Playoffs. Hopefully the Pacers are the ones to do it.

Yep, everyknow had to know Miami was going to make run. P's can't turn the ball over, they have to keep getting theirs too. I'm not a Johnson hater, but Beetlejuice just don't work well with this team sometimes.

I'm mighty impressed with Foster today. Not so much his offense (which was needed esp. in the first half since Ron was out of sync); but with his hustle. His hip must be feeling better or something. He's brought a lot today.

Oh god i hope it's ended in game 6! I'm going back for it 2!
I was tapped on the shoulder every time we went down by 8 or so points and continued to be told "It aint looking so good" and told how much "I Suck" because i'm a pacer fan. I Even had things thrown at me (as well as the pacer guy aka sign man). They were ruthless! like "we gone make you take yo ***** off before the end of the night" i'm like uhg...and some guy behind me kept messing with my hat! And like offering to trade me his heat hat for my pacer hat i'm like shove it! i had a fan tell me as i was leaving "Nice Jersey!" sucks 2 be you! or some crap just stupid.
