EDIT: NOTE - THE POLL SHOULD READ "Which of these two teams will finish higher in the Eastern Conference at season's end?"

Arg - that's what happens when I try to do a poll question off the top of my head.

Let me see if I can get one of the Admins to edit my poll to read "Eastern Conference" instead... :blush:

A Friday night off... and the game isn't on TV... at least not on Directv. No FSIN showing.

yes they are, but...i noticed they..with about all the other teams feeds ive watched...they complement our players alot more then our FSN Indiana announcers do. Im not sure if i never notice that with out announcer guys or not but it seems like that to me.

Lord Helmet

I like that we're trying to get to the basket tonight and not settling for jump shots.

We're still standing around too much when we pass it to JO in the post.

AesopRockOn
01-04-2008, 09:01 PM
We have to win. I don't want the Cavs to make the playoffs.

Can anybody on this team throw a decent entry pass?

BS continuation.

Jermaine O'neal- 2 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists

Pretty good half from what I saw. Mike definitely shown up today. Wish Quis had taken that to the rack.

Can't complain here (except about the announcers).


Edit: Yay! 2000 posts!!!.....Wait, should I be happy?

When both Dun and Danny are cutting, we have an offense.

or is the Hawks just playing bad?

Getting close to the 4th - do the Hawks have us where they want us?

I'm really starting to believe whoever was saying that Quis is a poor defender.

Just don't understand why we don't play this like our 5 last games :(

Up by 23 with 2 minutes left in the third. Most definitely, we are in trouble.

Just noticed Ike isn't getting any minutes tonight. What's up with that?

Decent lead. 2008 ftw.

It's pretty clearly that the less JO shoots, the better the team plays.

11 points is about right for him, but sadly he only has 3 boards.

When JO is our high scorer, it's that much more likely that our wings and PG are not cutting it...this is the way we need to play.

I wouldn't call anyone on this team a good defender not named: O'Neal/Granger/Foster.

BlueNGold

You could not be more correct. No one on this team except Quis can create their own shot. That goes for JO as well. That's why his FG% is so bad...because he forces shots all the time. The team needs to move the ball and get open shots or the same thing will always happen.

Signed...Mr. Obvious.

well rush played well on Rip Hamilton when he had the chances, and shut down Joe Johnson. I know its a team effort but his one of our better defenders.

JO would indeed be a good Scottie Pippen.
