This ought to be interesting watching Owens and Diener contain the Warriors and execute the offense. I see big minutes for Marquis ( if his knees are able to withstand the minutes).

granger33
01-16-2008, 07:05 PM
Gonna be good to see how we perform without JT.

Diener should be able to get some minutes.

ajbry
01-16-2008, 07:05 PM
Dunleavy blaming the Oakland community for his flaws... Oh well, he ain't got to worry about that **** any longer.

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 07:09 PM
We could really use Kobe Bryant to shut down Baron tonight. Aw well, let's see how a "rested" Owens does.

Cobol Sam
01-16-2008, 07:11 PM
**** Stephen Jackson.

AesopRockOn

Barnes at center? I think they mean Al.

Owens honestly looks like he belongs in a different league.

Owens honestly looks like he belongs in a different league.

Does it start with D?

Good start, guys.

Unless you've heard the radio you probably won't know what I'm :censored: about but what is up with Guys Night Out? Don't the Pacers know that the 11th Commandment is Wednesdays are ALWAYS Girls Night Out! :mad:

ajbry
01-16-2008, 07:17 PM
Does it start with D?

Good start, guys.

After yet another turnover, I think it starts with W.

Lord Helmet
01-16-2008, 07:17 PM
Andre Owens is playing terrible.

His play has been contagious to the rest of the starting team.

:warriors: 11
:thepacers 0

Lord Helmet

Kareem gets us on the scoreboard.....

JayRedd

:laugh::laugh::laugh:

7 TOs in 3:30.

Lord Helmet

The Pacers have to have 12 turnovers already.

After yet another turnover, I think it starts with W.

Same can be said about JO....

ajbry

Harrington sucks tonight. Dude gets so many looks created from teammates and misses so damn many.

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 07:24 PM
Danny finishes. Diener's +/- is soaring.

Lord Helmet
01-16-2008, 07:25 PM
This is worse than Panic At The Disco.

ouchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


our team is demoralized!!

can we get back??

kester99
01-16-2008, 07:31 PM
If our point guard would just take all the shots, these turnovers wouldn't happen so much.

Dr. Goldfoot
01-16-2008, 07:31 PM
This is junk.

grace
01-16-2008, 07:31 PM
Why does it feel like I'm watching the Bulls?

BruceLeeroy
01-16-2008, 07:35 PM
They're shots are all wide open and I'm not sure we've had a good shot yet.

ABADays

This is making me ill. Jackson comes in here w/GS thumbing their nose at us.

Baron has SIX steals. ****!

This game could be a lot worse fellas.

I hope y'all realize how insanely low of a basketball IQ that Mickael Pietrus has. It's just sad at this point.

JayRedd

This game could be a lot worse fellas.

Just you wait.

Nice avatar, btw.

MyFavMartin
01-16-2008, 07:39 PM
This game could be a lot worse fellas.

Yes. Because we're on a pace for 52 TOs so far.

Alpolloloco
01-16-2008, 07:40 PM
JO plays horrible so far, so do our PG's.

JayRedd
01-16-2008, 07:40 PM
Okay guys...let's not panic. 13 TOs in a quarter isn't that bad.

It's only one for each minute. Plus one more.

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 07:42 PM
Fouling is the best thing Diener can do in any circumstance.

BruceLeeroy
01-16-2008, 07:43 PM
True but they easily could be up 30 right now.

OnlyPacersLeft
01-16-2008, 07:43 PM
my god we have to lead the league in turnovers...every game we are so careless with the ball! I don't know how many times they dump it into JO and someone comes from the blind side to rip it from him.
*sigh* feeling very sick right now and this isn't helping...damnit

Larry Bird must have Baron on his fantasy team. :laugh:

That call was ****en stupid.

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 07:48 PM
Early impressions of the first half...

Before anyone commends Troy for his dunk, he traveled his a55 off so basically take that move back.

Andre owens is an R-tard, of course Granger is going to throw the ball to you off the rebound..you are the PG for crying out loud, keep your hed up and do your job.

Lucky for us Golden State is shooting like poo or we would be down about 30 at this point.

Where is Jeff Foster?

JayRedd
01-16-2008, 07:48 PM
Rush for trey.

Only down 3 (somehow).

Owens is still a better three point shooter than Diener.

Lookin' like the Mighty Ducks out there. Good effort.

JayRedd

Danny with a nice swat of Ivan Drago.

JayRedd
01-16-2008, 07:53 PM
Lookin' like the Mighty Ducks out there. Good effort.

A lot of these shots sure do look like knucklepucks.

Not sure I've ever seen so many consecutive shots not even hit the inside of the rim. Clang. Clang. Clang. I need, like, a welding torch to play in these league.

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 07:54 PM
How we are down only 7 is a mystery to me...

The sad thing is that it isn't a credit to us, but a discredit to GS. Anyother team that forced this many turnovers on us would be taking us to a federal prison shower by now.

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 07:55 PM
yeaa Danny, way to NOT blow a layup, love it

jmoney2584

Damn Jeff, those are some broke-*** shoes you are wearin....tighten up yo gear dawg

ajbry

Diener thinks he's Jack or Baron, throwing up rhythm threes early in the shot clock without passing. That is beyond hilarious.

aceace
01-16-2008, 08:03 PM
The start was so bad (22-10) I went and cleaned the toilets as punishment, somehow I felt guilty.

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 08:04 PM
What is hillarious is how hard he has to shoot to get them there. I'm guessing his love life is restricted to small folk..i don't see how his tiny butt could handle a real woman. haha

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 08:08 PM
I guess we're doing okay.

ajbry
01-16-2008, 08:09 PM
Jack giftwraps a couple late turnovers and it's only a 4 point game. Should be an interesting - to say the least - 2nd half.

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 08:12 PM
The halftime plus= Danny Granger

BruceLeeroy
01-16-2008, 08:13 PM
Murph played well....that's about it. We're lucky this game isn't already over.

ajbry
01-16-2008, 08:14 PM
The basketball vocabulary of Stacy Paetz most likely does not exceed 5 terms. My lord, I kept hearing the same **** over and over.

Actually it was more of a curveball.

and baby al decides to start hitting the 3...*sigh*...we can't beat the warriors

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 08:37 PM
If Williams could play D, I'd say put him on Al. As it is, Diener needs to sit b/c he's not useful in basketball.

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 08:37 PM

speaking of, two point game now...go Seminoles

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 08:43 PM
I'll say it again, if Baron or Monta are in, Diener needs to be on the bench.

Alpolloloco
01-16-2008, 08:44 PM
Put Diogu in!

OnlyPacersLeft
01-16-2008, 08:44 PM
I'm going to assume JO's done and so are the pacers...no tinsley and no JO=not a chance...no one can guard davis. This sucks...
well maybe FSU can pull one out! COME ON NOLES!

AesopRockOn
01-16-2008, 08:48 PM
I'd rather have Murphy play D on their guards on the off chance he'll elbow them in the face.

Pacemaker
01-16-2008, 08:49 PM
Does still having J.O. on this team makes any sense?

jmoney2584
01-16-2008, 08:51 PM
So whats the word on JO, I became much more interested in the Duke/FSU game but from all accounts and my recent check-ins he hasn't been in.

We're getting killed again by these guys

AesopRockOn

Diener thinks he's Jack or Baron, throwing up rhythm threes early in the shot clock without passing. That is beyond hilarious.


His results are about the same. You typed that sentence like that is one of Jack's strengths, lol. I've seen him clank more pull up threes with 19+ seconds left on the shot clock than anyone in the history of the NBA.

EDIT: They said on the TV broadcast that JO was out with an "injury." If you had to guess, you would have to say his knee is acting up.

Alpolloloco
01-16-2008, 09:06 PM
Granger playing great (without JO) again. He's my nr. 1 option for sure!

When running up and down the floor like that, it helps to have someone in who has slashing instincts.

Danny once again proves he has no handles.....

Jackson 5/17

Harrington 6/15

Now I remember why we traded these guys.

EDIT: Of course Al has to hit the three as I type that.

Pretty nice outings by Murph and Dun against their former team.

Jackson and Harrington, at least numerically, played pretty decently, with Harrington playing a lot better than Jack.

Yes, I would like a double helping of crow with extra mustard.

LOL....I would not worry about it ABA....it started out like it was going to be real ugly. We had 13 turnovers in the 1st quarter alone. The effort in the
2nd half was very good.
