Is Tinsley back?

Not sure if either he or Rush will be in the lineup for certain, we likely won't know until tip-off for sure :shrug:

Pretty early start time for a Saturday game. Let's hope the only losing streak to end tonight is our own.

If this is any consolation to you Jay, they are more likely to still be drunk than hungover. :console:

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:36 PM
"Misery versus adversity" - that's how the Miami announcers introduced the match-up.

At the very least, this year should be exciting in terms of the race for 8th.

I guarantee a win... :D Will be watching, Go Pacers!

Cobol Sam
01-26-2008, 03:36 PM
According to Heat pregame coverage JT is out today.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:37 PM
Either Diener really breaks a serious sweat before every game or he's getting swirlies in the lockerroom...

Cobol Sam

So we're starting 3 white dudes now. Nice.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:46 PM
Diener is great. Somebody we can root for without reservations.

#31
01-26-2008, 03:46 PM
I Love Diener... what an awesome shooter and playmaker.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:46 PM
Our shooting can only get better...

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:47 PM
It doesn't seem like we are interested in offensive boards.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 03:48 PM
Diener is great. Somebody we can root for without reservations.

And someone who probably gets laughed at when he says he's an NBA player when going to nice restaurants and trying to get reservations.

Is it weird that the Miami announcers feel the need to explain who basically all our starters are?

Cobol Sam
01-26-2008, 03:51 PM
Cheer up girl its your birthday!

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:52 PM
I like Blount.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:52 PM
Jim O'Brien says he's a huge blunt guy.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 03:52 PM
Sick drive by Danny...Gotta finish that though, Gift.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:53 PM
Diener should have 6 assists by now...

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 03:53 PM
Jim O'Brien says he's a huge blunt guy.

Probably why he doesn't like Harrison -- a known bong afficionado.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 03:54 PM
I don't care if Travis dribbles off a foot and airballs a three. I want him to get some XP

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:56 PM
Does anyone think Dunleavy wants points tonight?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:57 PM
That was good defense, just not long enough...

Oneal07
01-26-2008, 03:58 PM
Leavy is going OFF

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 03:58 PM
Dunleavy can dunk? Who knew?

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 03:58 PM
wow. good dunk

#31
01-26-2008, 03:58 PM
Dunleavy, WOW!

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 03:58 PM
Holy ****.

Cobol Sam
01-26-2008, 03:59 PM
Dunleavy with 16 points in the first quarter!... so far.

Cobol Sam
01-26-2008, 04:00 PM
Rush is also playing some good defense tonight, along with Diener causing turnovers.

01-26-2008, 04:00 PM
Get up Dun Dun! That's my mofo!!! :happydanc :buddies:

LoneGranger33

OB looks a lot more pissed off as Pacers coach than he did in his previous two gigs.

pwee31
01-26-2008, 04:02 PM
Does Wade ever NOT get a call?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 04:03 PM
It's pretty sweet that we're gonna make history this year...

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 04:05 PM
It's pretty sweet that we're gonna make history this year...

Are you talking about Miami's losing streak or Dunleavy's 60-point game?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 04:06 PM
Diener > Quinn.

Cobol Sam
01-26-2008, 04:06 PM
Who'd win in a fight Diener or Quinn?

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 04:09 PM
I got Diener. Guys with two first names are always soft. It's science.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 04:15 PM
Owens ain't bad either.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 04:15 PM
I got Diener. Guys with two first names are always soft. It's science.

Would you consider Murphy a first name too?

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 04:20 PM
A lot of charges so far....

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 04:21 PM
Their backup center (backing up their 3rd string center by the way) just stole the ball from Dunleavy.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 04:27 PM
Am I the only one that finds it a little weird how much the Heat announcers are talking about our team? I feel like I'm being hit on.

Oneal07
01-26-2008, 04:28 PM
see how we play when we attack the basket!!!

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 04:28 PM

I wish I could watch it...does anyone know a FREE site on the web where this is possible?

dgranger
01-26-2008, 04:39 PM
Andre is second on our team in points, tied for second in rebounds, and 1st in assists....nice game so far.

Cobol Sam
01-26-2008, 04:45 PM
dgranger check that PM.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 04:54 PM
We actually look like a good team today!

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 04:59 PM
Travis def. makes quick hard passes to teammates.

Oneal07
01-26-2008, 05:02 PM
Miami is making us look good today haha

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:03 PM
If we can hold off on one more run...Miami will give up.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:06 PM
Diener's attempt at a beard is adorable.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:08 PM
DWade is silly good.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:10 PM
Kareem Rush's shot selection is not there tonight.

Lord Helmet
01-26-2008, 05:11 PM
Here it comes, boys!

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:13 PM
Good thing we went with Owens right!?

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:14 PM
I think Dwyane just decided they're not losing another game.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:15 PM
Just how ****ing bad are we?

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:15 PM
I'm glad Andre just got to the line...but what the hell was he doing at halfcourt?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:16 PM
Look at those sweet handles...LOL.

Oneal07
01-26-2008, 05:16 PM
Teams make their run. . Relax. We just gotta match the intensity

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:16 PM
Diener brought in for the defense?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:18 PM
Look at that, all our fans are now rooting for Miami, including Kareem Rush's fat older brother front and center.

It's not so much intensity I'm worried about as the face that one of the five best players in the League just scored 13 points in four minutes on 6 shots.

Can someone summarize the game? Just checked in..

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:21 PM
This is the worst line-up ever put together.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:21 PM
17 - 6 run? ah crap.

Team needs to get it goin again.

Oneal07
01-26-2008, 05:22 PM
Now were settling for jumpshots

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:22 PM
THIS IS THE WORST ****ING LINEUP POSSIBLE!

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:22 PM
Oh fiddlesticks. Sassafras, sassafras, sassafras.

JayRedd

Huge shot from The Dean.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:25 PM
Owens, Daniels, Rush, Shawne and Foster? What the hell? Are we trying to score?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:26 PM
Foster offensive superstar?

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:26 PM
Does anyone else think O'Brien is trying to tank?

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:26 PM
Starters are back.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:27 PM
Starters are back.

Or wait...did Foster start or did Murphy?

I can't tell them apart...White people all look the same.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:28 PM
I love how the Heat announcers are making excuses for our players now. How sad are we?

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:30 PM
Let's get a stop.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:30 PM
DEFENSE! DEFENSE! DEFENSE!

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:30 PM
Or not...that works too.

Kareem is good.

Oneal07

LETS GO KAREEM, THEY CANT GUARD YOU

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:30 PM
Heat has some players stepping up.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:32 PM
He should have shot it.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:32 PM
Diener needs to not fear shooting.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:32 PM
Sometimes Travis looks like a JV player playing in his first Varsity game.

LoneGranger33

The Pacers are the worst team in the NBA bar none. I'm still a fan, but damn we are ****ing awful.

Lord Helmet
01-26-2008, 05:33 PM
Does anyone else think O'Brien is trying to tank?
No.

We're not good.

Simple as that.

LoneGranger33
01-26-2008, 05:34 PM
No, it's really not that simple. Look at that fourth quarter starting lineup. The guy couldn't have possibly thought that was a good idea.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:35 PM
I don't get frustrated anymore with this team. I just keep my expectations low.

Oneal07
01-26-2008, 05:35 PM
We're better than Miami, Standings said so

aceace
01-26-2008, 05:37 PM
We have a confidence problem along with shooting woes.

Mr. Pink
01-26-2008, 05:37 PM
Nice drive by TD and Rush. Just can't get em in.

JayRedd
01-26-2008, 05:37 PM

Jesus Dwyane...Cut it out.

hell of a shot by Wade. nice 3.

Oneal07

Don't get me wrong. I like the kid. I really hope he has a good work ethic. I think he can become a very solid backup PG

LoneGranger33

JayRedd

Did Dwyane just throw the ball off Blount's hands just so he could get his dribble back and then abuse us?

Oneal07
