Glad I read PD cause I forgot all about the preview and would have started out tonight searching for an internet feed.

"A free preview of NBA LEAGUE PASS TV will be available Mon., Jan. 19 – Sun., Jan. 25 allowing fans to watch the NBA’s televised out-of-market NBA games."

It depends on who your provider is (Comcast, DirecTV, Dish, etc). DirecTV looks like it will be on 753 I am guessing but it is blacked out and says call customer service, at least for pregame. :confused:

Update: I called directv and they said it was blacked out but I couldn't really get a good reason. bummer.

But they didn't start actually playing until the 2005-2006 season, right?

Founded in '04? Wish I remembered....

Okafor was their first draft pick back in 2004, so they started in 2004-2005.

Downloaded sopcast and now I can watch the game. Hopefully I did not pick up
a virus. I think I will delete the program after the game. Pacers are trying to play defense.
Granger has 13.

if you factor in that we give up a career high to a scrub each game, that's an awfully low bar to set for diaw, especially considering the contract.

I've had Sopcast on my laptop for about a year now...no problems encountered. Although it will suck up bandwidth. If you're sharing a connection, your sharers might not be happy.

He was beastly on the O boards.

That kind of behavior will give him a definite pass on the offensive play. Add a turnaround jumper from the baseline and nearly all his sins are forgiven.

I'll take the 3 for 6, and 4 of our 5 free throws. And 5 assists.

I'm not saying it's not a wild ride sometimes.

He got better as the game went along.

I've noticed perhaps a bit of a better effort to resist forcing things inside the paint. He's dribbled or passed out a few times. I like it.

For the most part , we are playing pretty good, minus a few steals on us here lately from intercepted passes..

enjoyable game really . we are really stepping it up on being active on defense... granted it's not "stellar" but a big improvement over what we are used to..

It does look like our guys are gaining more confidence and chemistry with each other , I will say that much...

Good call, Anthem. I thought the exact same thing when he faked and then went inside for the shot. It looked awkward and the result was predictable. I tried to think of ever having seen Murphy make a midrange jumper, and I couldn't.

Oh well. It's about to be Jack/Dun time at the line.

kester99
01-25-2009, 10:22 PM

It's that ball fake and sidestep. Dun can do it. Troy thinks he should be able to. It almost never goes down.
