darned i have withdrawal symptoms, all those days without a game all of a sudden, feels like off season almost.

desperately trying to find anything to read!

and then a connection that is acting up due to bad weather in the UK (well London at least) and this Doom crap!

STOP INTERFERING WITH MY GAME!!!!

GO PACERS

Jermaine should dominate tonight...especially if Voskul and White get into foul trouble.

Anthony Johnson starting? Hmm =\

And the local Arizona channels suck.

01-28-2004, 08:15 PM
well if AJ keeps this up, his time on court in the first Q will be short :) 0-2

Ron on Johnson, good guess :)

this is gonna be fun if they want to double up anyone in the post, we have a few we can throw in there :D

Go Pacers!

Marion has a strange shot.

Southside_Pacer
01-28-2004, 08:23 PM
13-9 we're up at the first TV Timeout

Not a real exciting game so far since we're playing Phoenix. But I'd rather have a boring win than an exciting loss any day of the week.

zxc
01-28-2004, 08:23 PM
Phoenix not looking too good. Feels like we should have a bigger lead by now..

Detroit down 10 to Boston early in the first.

Cactus Jax
01-28-2004, 08:25 PM
This is my first, and hopefully only DNW (Did not watch) for the season. It kills me not to watch this game right now.

why isnt he starting?

Heard he missed the morning shoot around.

debohstheman
01-28-2004, 08:27 PM
one thing: i hope we do not ever trade Al. He is really expanding his game.....his long range shooting this year is really much improved.....

he is going to be an excellent all around player for years....

able
01-28-2004, 08:30 PM
hmm i just hope he does not keeps hoisting up balls like the first minute he is in the game, 1 - 3 in under one minute, this is a TEAM sport Al!

oh well, that is his biggest problem and will probably not go away for a while.

:stupid:

Nope, I don't get that UPN channel. I live in Tucson so the channels are probably different. I watched the 1st game because it was on the Suns' Fox Sports channel.

how is the pacers' defense looking?

able
01-28-2004, 08:33 PM
Pollie in, let's see if he can bring some energy, it has gone out of the game now, and Al is doing it all by himself by the sound of it.

nice pass from Ron and play from Fred!

What a finish by Al! Nice steal by Jones too.
Great way to end the Q.

Cactus Jax

Vecsey talks too much about the Pacers, they're talking about Shaq's calf injury, and not bringing him back soon, and rat boy immediately brings up Bender's calf situation last year. Anybody with a calf injury and he comes up with Bender.

Coast to coast!

It's getting hard to get on here again. Doom virus raising it's nerdy head again?

By the way, Phoenix has no answer for Tinsley.

Al Harrington vs a poor defender who's smaller + no help = Exactly what we're seeing. All day long.

Freddie!!! WOW!!! :o

JO isn't looking too good tonight. And he keeps wandering on D leaving the lane wide open.

freddie with very solid defense.....

Southside_Pacer
01-28-2004, 08:59 PM
What a block by Freddie! Great elevation on that block, and then he does it on the other end of the floor getting the layup after the inbounds.

indytoad
01-28-2004, 09:01 PM
Freddy with a HUGE block, a steal and a fast break hoop! I love that guy.

Defense is kinda questionable though...

IndyToad
Sure do come in handy

That's all you have to say? How about we're up 10, with other guys giving us some nice plays tonight?

Or even simpler: We're up 10 (12 now) without JO even being too "on" tonight.

We're running away with it right now.

Probably will have one of those "it's only a 10 point lead" 'scares', then keep the lead padded enough to win.

able
01-28-2004, 09:34 PM
hmm JO will end up with a double double again, GREAT play from Tins!

darned, he could be on Reg's pay-roll!

woohoooo

zxc

21 point lead, great quarter so far. Artest looking much better than he has in awhile.

Nice to see JO not following Voskul out to the three point line then switching onto guards this quarter too.

Hicks
01-28-2004, 09:37 PM
Reggie's shooting like it's 1994!!!!!!

Back to back 3's a good 5 feet behind the 3 point line!

Detroit starting to pull away from Boston.. up 14 in the third. Oh well.

82-59 after three. Some extended garbage time ahead perhaps.

After a slow start on offense, Pacers are really getting some good ball movement. 82 after 3 quarters, let's keep it going!

zxc

Hmm unit we have out there not looking too good. Timeout Carlisle.

Boston cut lead down somewhat. 75-70 Detroit after three.

Roy Munson

Ok, it just HAS to be said: Scott Pollard is a terrible basketball player.

fooddaman

You have to love Rick still coaching up 19 after Suns make a small run.

What? There is an Austin Croshere sighting :dance: :dance: :pepper: :pepper:

Hicks
01-28-2004, 09:57 PM
Quinn explained it. If it's more than a 6 point run, that's when Rick will call the timeout.

zxc
01-28-2004, 09:58 PM
Pollard just looking awful around the basket tonight.

Nice save by Jones.

fooddaman
01-28-2004, 10:01 PM
Quinn explained it. If it's more than a 6 point run, that's when Rick will call the timeout.

Some people might not like that, but I really think it's smart coaching. The game has so many runs that can build momentum, but calling the TO get's the team refocused. They almost always loose their defensive focus when Rick calls the TO.

debohstheman
01-28-2004, 10:01 PM

yes......very impressed at how well the P's ball control was....very few turnovers to a TON by the suns......

the Bench played an amazing game....one of the best bench games of the year IMO.

Southside_Pacer
