IGGY is a dunk addict

Dalembert has no other move but to dunk it

Ya, that's why im nervous.. They have guys that can really drive the ball into the paint and finish.. Which will kill us when JO isn't in the game.

I really think Philly they can't matchup with us. We saw it last game. but we'll see with the way theyre playing the last month or so.

hopefully we'll pull it out. Do or Die

I would hope that Harrison will get some minutes. He may not block that many shots without fouling....but he's good at altering shots from those that want to drive to the hoop.

Kemo
04-11-2008, 07:00 PM
I sure hope our guys can pull off a W .. I heard JOB mention that they skipped some morning shoot-around because half of the guys have a stomach virus ..

We are gonna have to pull DEEP and get some good play from our bench tonight..

maybe we will have a Graham , Harrison and Ike sighting.. ..

I think that Harrison , along with JO will be KEY to altering and blocking shots tonight.. as we all know Iggy and Dre will be looking to score heavily in the paint off fast breaks...

This is gonna be a tough one unless we go out and handle business
Tonight will really show how much heart this team of ours have

Somebody needs to call out the man coming up from behind there.

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:14 PM
I don't think Diener can play if they're going to fast break like that.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:16 PM
I love the alternate jerseys.. They should wear them more often.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:18 PM
OMG, they keep getting offensive rebounds.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:18 PM
Nice play by Flip.

..I didn't think about that when I thought about how good they were driving into the paint.. We can just make them charge into us.. Then they'll stop.

Kemo
04-11-2008, 07:20 PM
haha awesome block by granger

Lord Helmet
04-11-2008, 07:20 PM
Can Murray play any worse?

Kudos to Danny! Nice job stopping an easy dunk!

Good things can't last though, Murray playing sub-par.

Murray's scoring has made up for his lack of being able to pass the ball or handle it so far tonight. He'll get going, though.

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:20 PM
Granger just bailed Murray's dumb *** out.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:28 PM
Nice dunk! Granger has really come out aggressive the past couple games.. That huge block last game.

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:30 PM
Nobody is shooting well. Consider getting closer to the basket.

This Granger kid is pretty good.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:33 PM
Well we don't need to shoot well when we get to the basket like this..

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:34 PM
Still want Andre Owens to get some minutes.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:34 PM
Oh, wow.. Why do they have Smith on JO.. We should go to him on offense.. He could easily take Smith out.

Trader Joe
04-11-2008, 07:35 PM
WTH Diener.

Hicks
04-11-2008, 07:36 PM
We have to keep the scoring low. Eventually we'll get it going, but we can't let them run on us in the mean time.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:38 PM
Lol, they are shooting even worse then we are.. wow.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:39 PM
Come on Quis!!! Finish that!

d_c
04-11-2008, 07:40 PM
Lol, they are shooting even worse then we are.. wow.


They're not a team that shoots well. The Pacers' pack it in style should work well against them.

They're athletic and want to get into the open court, so just don't turn the ball over.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:41 PM
Here it comes.. I can sense it.. Were about to turn it on.

LG33
04-11-2008, 07:43 PM
Sure hope so.

Every thing's comin together!! My sense must have been right, lol..

JO looking very 2004-ish tonight.

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:48 PM
Why the hell are we gambling instead of playing defense?

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 07:51 PM
MAN I miss that 2001 team.. Why did we trade Rose?? It was OK, at the time.. But back then Rose was actually my favorite player, even over Reggie, but just a smidge. :)

EDIT: Thinkin about it, that trade actually led to our demise into what we are trying to get out of right now..

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:55 PM
Diener really needs someone to help him with his shot; it's in britney shape right now.

That's what I have said about Murray......he's like Marquis.....he turns into a PG that we need 2 out of every 5 games :rolleyes:

Lord Helmet
04-11-2008, 07:56 PM
9 turnovers and counting.

CableKC
04-11-2008, 07:56 PM
One more thing....are we slowing down to play the Sixers?

or

Are both teams just shooting really bad?

I don't know what the tempo is in this game and we're barely scoring any points.

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 07:56 PM
Shawne Williams not looking too cerebral there.

Frak....Hawks up by 10 in the 1st QTR

D23
04-11-2008, 08:00 PM
I'm stuck at work, looking at the box score. Did Foster get hurt or something? I just noticed he's only played 7 minutes.

Lord Helmet
04-11-2008, 08:01 PM
Would they stop showing that stupid Celtics commercial? Damn.

Show that in the Boston-region only.

Show the Indiana-region clips of Stern's unanimous decision and him apologizing for the 4 point play. "Where I'm sorry we ****ed up.......kinda. Happens."

AesopRockOn
04-11-2008, 08:01 PM
Aww, damn Knicks!

No, were just playin small. Williams is the biggest guy on the floor right now.

Really low scoring game.

CableKC
04-11-2008, 08:13 PM
40-27 - Hawks up by 13 w/8 min in the 2nd QTR.

I hope that DW is on their *** in the Lockerroom after the half for being down by so much.

Wow...$30 for Lower bowl seats at Conseco.

FLIP really needs to settle down on offense. he is looking to show up his home-town fans.
tried dunking couple of times, tho i do like the aggressiveness he justs over cooks the ball while dribbling to make his move.

MDJ looks like he really got affected with that Virus thing. i never see him tired by 2nd quarter but he looked beat rite now.

LETS GO KNICKS

maragin
04-11-2008, 08:15 PM
Knicks not putting up much of a fight yet.

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 08:15 PM
Expect our guys to step up and make sure we win in the second half.. Im sure they are in the locker room looking at the Knicks/Hawks game and knowing the Hawks will win.

The Knicks are packing it in. Atlanta is dominating them right now.

For playoff hopefuls, this is an absolute must-win tonight.

You think?? Maybe. I just figured they could turn on a tv and check it while the coach is talking to them.. But I can see them not letting em'.

Another TO by Flip. :banghead:

6 Total TO by Flip.

not to mention he can't rebound

CableKC
04-11-2008, 08:38 PM
Tall PGs that can score over our PGs is one of the reasons why I don't want to draft Augustine or Collison. PGs like Dre would just abuse our PGs on a nightly basis.

Danny > Philadelphia

Ownagedood

GRANGER!!! Another huge block!

He could get some big time attention from ESPN.. Two huge blocks in two straight games.. Not to mention the other stuff he's doing.

Ownagedood

I can't see the game. He does have 7 rebounds.

Is he at least standing his ground and holding the paint?

NapTonius Monk

Yeah...I saw that too. The Hawks are spanking them thoroughly.

We're lucky they can't throw a rock in the ocean.. with how we're getting worked on the offensive glass, this would normally be a much different score.

NapTonius Monk
04-11-2008, 09:02 PM
Boy, Carney is getting worked by Danny. What a game he's got going tonight. The only reason he turned that over is because he was so wide open, it startled him.

OnlyPacersLeft

if joe johnson could stop stroking it the knicks might have a outside shot

Ownagedood
04-11-2008, 09:03 PM
Goodness Granger.
He's absolutely exhausted right now.. That's why he walked..lol

JOB needs to change the lineup.. Plenty of solid guys we could put in to give our guys a break.. Can't get them tired for tomorrow.. That would kill.

Whoever made the point about the taller guards shooting over our guys, I think Westbrook is the answer to that.

Actually I posted that about 5 seconds before the walk. He was just playing out of his mind, and I was appreciative.

Philly might want to consider shooting better than this in the playoffs. (I suppose I could credit our D too)

Good game Pacers.

Well, I thought we'd get 35 wins, and we did...with 3 games to play.

NJ is about to be eliminated.
