Rudy Gay.. can we contain him? unless we get him on foul trouble like last time

Danny looking good early. Blocked a Gay jumper and gets to the line on a nice drive to the hole. Knocked down both.

Looks like we got our back-up point.

7-8 so far from three in games he's started. I like it.

Great D by JO there. Came out to double the pick-and-roll and then recovered back to block Stro Swift.

And there's Owens with another trey on the other end. Good, good stuff.

I liked how Dre Owens used that post up on Conley. Looks like he's learned from Tins.

Granger driving and dishing ... looking good on defense too!

Glad he's a Pacer (for life?).

Conflict

Like the rebounding so far, they learned to take some offensive boards too. Even Murphy and JO.

FG is bad and I hope that Dun Dun finds his rhytm.

M. Boyle just said the Grizzlies have never won at Conseco Fieldhouse.

We may be witnessing history in the making.

M. Boyle just said the Pacers field goal percentage is only 32 percent. Their worst of the season.

We may be witnessing history in the making.

Has anyone else had **** luck with Insight Broadband's service today? My internet is basically maybe a little faster than dial-up right now.

Our Insight recently made the change to Comcast, and I think it was as early as yesterday they made the change. Maybe that is my probmem.

By the way, what an ugly game, Granger really needs to start being more assertive.

This is one of the most lackluster performances I've seen this season. Very disappointing.

There are only going to be a couple of quotes that can be meaningful after this clusterf. "We sucked tonight, ergo, we continue to suck."

Lord Helmet

Looks like the 5-game losing streak in inevitable at this point.

Guess who's up next? Those pesky Hawks at home, Friday night. BTW, it won't be on FSI.

0 defense, no wonder fans aren't showing up to the games. I might have to walkout if I was there! No excuse for this!

I agree.

There have been some bad losses this year, but this is definitely top-3.

What is the problem though? That is the question. I think Dunleavy and Granger not being on their game is hurting us. Ike has really done nothing, he doesn't look in game-shap and of course, we miss Tinsley.

We have to hope for Mike and Danny to start playing better than they are and Tinsley to get healthy soon. Also always must look to play this offense better than we are. We can always play it better.

This **** kills me.

So we need Tinsley to play around 40 minutes a night just to be a .500 team? That's not a good sign.

Granger is starting to really get under my skin. Can Shawne Williams start getting some minutes?

Lord Helmet

A lot of players played pathetic tonight.

BlueNGold

Dunleavy is not to blame for this loss. He has 3 steals and 15pts at least...

Alpolloloco
01-02-2008, 10:11 PM
We played best tonight with JO on the bench in the first half.

I want a new backcourt so let's trade O'Neal ... NOW!

Granger is paid minimum wage and even with his bad game he's playing better than JO.

Daniels really as backup pg is what is making it tough for the 2nd unit. Times will come where he will be going to be scoring over the smaller average point guards but then theres gon be times like this where he force so many shots and making the ball not move.. killng us.

after JOB made that substitution to take Owens out and Put Daniels in the 3rd. that screwed us up..

Granger. where are you!!

Granger +/- is one the better tonight, he was assertive enough in the beginning with some driving. His shots just didn't fall tonight ... like everybody else.

This has to be on the GM a bit, for not finding a back up point.

I gave up on JO a long time ago.

I expect more out of Granger, but he keeps making the same mistakes.
-Inability to handle the ball in the open court
-Inability to score in traffic
-Lazy defense

Don't think I'm a JO apologist, I love the guy, but he isn't getting a free pass from me. I failed to mention him because I really think we've relied on the performance of Dunleavy and Granger a lot and it times many have even said, "When those guys are on, the Pacers are on, and when they are off, the Pacers are off."

We need those two playing decent ball and we also need a healthy Tinsley. JO should have played better, I agree, though.

Team loss. But those are some things I thought really contributed to such a pathetic performance.

Hell, no one is hitting a shot tonight.

Wow, did Conseco just play Panic! At The Disco? Just shoot me.

Getting outplayed, outhustled and outscored by the crappy Grizzlies is just plain sad. I'm not sure this team is capable of being a .500 team.

I can ride it out if we are on a path to improvement, but I'm not even sure of that these days. Couple that uncertainty with several non-televised games and what seems like some player apathy and they are mighty hard to watch right now.

When I stop caring, I get worried. I'm getting worried.

I've been a Granger proponent, and recognize some of that. I tend to think, however, a player like him...one that appears to have a good work ethic, is bound to fix those issues. He's no Lebron, but he will be a good player IMO.

BTW, if you expect him to be a superstar player JO would have been but-for his injuries, you will be disappointed. My expectations are still in the 20ppg range as a vet...
