When you see the starting lineups, doesn't it just scream "Matchup problem!" Guarding Stuckey, Hamilton, and Iverson with Jack, Dun, and Granger is a bit scary. I guess I'd go with Dunleavy on Hamilton, Granger on Stuckey, and Jack on AI. They're also going to exploit their frontline quickness with Wallace and Prince bigtime. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Foster gets another start. Hibbert can not guard 'Sheed.

Quis

Granger's averaging 37.5 ppg on .622 shooting in the two games vs Detroit this year.

Dr. Hibbert

They really need this one tonight. The WC trip was a bit of a disappointment to say the least. If they want to make any kind of a statement about their postseason chances at all, this would be a prime opportunity.

Kstat

Don't see any chance the Pistons win this game, as long as the small ball lineup is out there they will not win again.

special ed
01-14-2009, 05:01 PM
Seems if Curry plays his small ball lineup, as the starting lineup is listed, this plays right into the Pacers hands.

Hicks

against this starting line up by the pistons.. if only we had quissy, it would have been a good match up. Pistons small balling :)

Murph on Sheed
Dun on Prince
Granger on Rip
Quis on AI
Jack on Stuckey

and everyone can switch without getting too much advantage

Why does Chris Denari always sound surprised when someone on the other team is "perfect from the field"?

Dr. Hibbert
01-14-2009, 07:16 PM
Okay, Foster needs to be done after that layup. That was pretty pathetic.

Murphy for three helps to make that better, though.

MyFavMartin

tj day-to-day?

Dr. Hibbert
01-14-2009, 07:19 PM
Better effort by Foster on that putback.

Again, why do Denari and Buckner always seem so surprised by the other teams' confidence? Of course they're confidence, they're shooting uncontested threes.

is there some type of League Pass bylaw that says all Pacer broadcasts must include Quinn? i have yet to hear Clark Kellogg this season

Doesn't Clark usually do away games? League Pass usually shows the home teams feed so that might be why.

We kind of fizzled towards the end of the second. Ford got lucky with that 3 point play.

I am pleased so far. I hope we play this well in the second half. Beating the Pistons would make my day.

Lord Helmet

I don't understand how NBA refs can be so bad at their jobs and still not a squeak is made about how bad they are.

When it's a 24 second violation, just like Chris and Quinn said, the ball is supposed to be whistled dead and they just let them keep playing....

01-14-2009, 09:07 PM
I think these short rotations are what is killing us .. Our main 7 guys are conditioned for 42-45 minutes of hard play , but they fizzle out in those extra 3 to 5 minutes..

We NEED McRoberts and Hibbert in these games damnit.. even for 10 minutes.. it would greatly help..

I have no confidence we will win this game, and it's pretty sad because it is only a 3 point Pistons lead.

HOW DOES EVERY TEAM PULL A CLUTCH THREE AGAINST THIS TEAM? IT'S FREAKING UNBELIEVABLE!

maragin
01-14-2009, 09:11 PM
I know there is reason for it, but seeing no one even attempting to get a rebound on that shot by Dunleavy disturbs me. No one was even inside the 3 point arc or moving towards the basket.

Lord Helmet

Easy, they're better, and if you're better, you probably have luck on your side a little bit more.

01-14-2009, 09:21 PM
This, I remember from the '80's. When your record is this bad, the other team gets "3-hit fouls". They won't call anything on them until the third time they hit a Pacer.

MyFavMartin
01-14-2009, 09:21 PM
I am quite happy to have Dunleavy back on this squad.

Tayshaun has some good length that's bothering Danny though I think Granger needs to be more assertive and create the contact by driving to the basket.

This is what our team was supposed to look like at the beginning of the year! A healthy pacers team, is a good pacers team! I really like our starting lineup!

It's just one game, but I agree.

Never really had a doubt in my mind Indiana would win. Michael Curry was the best thing Indiana had going for them tonight. He single handily killed the defense with his midget lineups and shut down stuckey in the 4th quarter when Indiana needed stops.

The Pistons will miss the playoffs entirely as long as Curry is the head coach, unless rip gets injured again. Guaranteed.

Really? What was the announced attendance for tonight?
Well that normally doesn't really show how many people were actually there. They count every seat that was sold, but we still get plenty of no-shows.

The mid-level looked pretty vacant.

I just got back....I don't believe that we were able to keep any team under 100 pts in 4 Qtrs.

Stuckey's a hell of a player. Can't comment too much on Curry. When you say miss, do you mean first round exit or miss entirely? I don't see them missing the playoffs for several years.

By miss, i mean they are not going to make the playoffs entirely.

The Pistons are a last-place caliber team under Curry's small-ball.

I think missed free-throws really hurt Detroit early on.

I'm not going to annoint this team quite yet myself. Now if they can keep consistency for, let's say 15 games, I may start to get a little happy myself. I loved the fire that Jack showed in that 4th quarter after getting fouled and it being a no-call. Yeah he got rung up on a tech, but at least he shows us that he really cares about this team. And the fact that several other players came to his aid to get him away from the ref shows we are starting to get that team chemistry.
