At least melo can relax that Hulk won't be around to stare him Down anymore, man they hated each other. Seems like everytime we played the nuggets Harrison would always find some way to get melo pissed off at him or vice versa.

where in the hell is the 3 pointer that DG scored?

they didnt put it on the scoreboard it looked like.. did i just miss it?

ouch! Bad quarter...we cut the lead down, but its still at 12.

Very poor play overall by the Pacers....but a nice little run at the end of the quarter.

JOB is a decent coach. He got Murphy out of there in a hurry. Murphy is just not going to go against Nene or Martin.

Free Throws:

Nuggets 14/16

it was 31 .. then DG hit a 3 , bringing it to 34 .. then murph hit a 3 .. and it is only 36?????!!! WTF is wrong with this picture?


I know I am not mathematically challenged WTF guys?!?!

JayRedd
01-05-2009, 09:47 PM
For anyone wondering why Hibbert doesn't play more...It's because he makes Kleiza look like Kobe in a pick and roll.

MillerTime
01-05-2009, 09:47 PM
Hibbert already has 4 fouls. We're fouling way too much.

Kemo
01-05-2009, 09:49 PM

MillerTime

One of those 3s might been a 2...most likely

Finally Rasho makes a layup...

good defense by Granger on Melo

3 fouls on Melo and now a T.

duke dynamite
01-05-2009, 09:57 PM
It's imperative that we keep 'Melo off the court as much as possible.

Now, let's fine a way to get "nene" off it, too.

This reminds me of the old ABA days between these two teams....lots of offense back in the those days.

Kuq_e_Zi91
01-05-2009, 10:23 PM
Nuggets shooting 65% in the first half. We must keep them out the paint.

Thankfully we only have 2 turnovers or we'd be down a lot more.

Hibbert already is.

I watched a preseason game last year where the Nuggs and Pacers played here in Cincinnati, and Kleiza was, by far, the most amazing player on the court. He was doing insane stuff out there, making everybody else on both teams look silly. It was very weird.

And once again Jack makes something out of nothing.

danny needs to be in to finish out or we will be down 15 by end of 3

LoneGranger33
01-05-2009, 10:52 PM
The problem with Rasho is that he cannot play defense in any kind of an uptempo scheme. He's kind of like Troy Murphy last year in that if he ain't giving you offense, he might as well not be out there. But I'm willing to hear a rebuttal.

They can't make a free throw, but it's okay, because we can't rebound their misses.

Can we get a freaking defensive rebound?

LoneGranger33
01-05-2009, 11:02 PM
Danny needs to score more. Fifty a game, at least.

LoneGranger33
01-05-2009, 11:04 PM
Hahah. Nice dunk. And the best part about that one, Mr. Andersen, is that it didn't take 14 attempts.

LoneGranger33
01-05-2009, 11:07 PM
I understand why Brandon Rush isn't playing today, but I think it couldn't come against a worse opponent. We don't need extra offense against the Nuggets, we need defense - and it shows.

LoneGranger33
01-05-2009, 11:10 PM
Rasho is like an unathletic Greg Ostertag.

LoneGranger33
01-05-2009, 11:12 PM
Those last couple of turnovers prove that offenses run through big men (on the perimeter) will rarely succeed.

LoneGranger33

At least the Nuggets are a decent team.

I can do that without even knowing the opponent or waiting for the first 3 mins. I can do it right now. Put me down for 10 losses. Let's see if I get at least 7 outta 10 right.... ;)
