man i hate when they put the games on nba tv. They play different commercials and often times cut back to the game late and u miss a possession.

You know I voted nothing in the poll but I do have a disclaimer.

If the stock market agrees to continue rising I'd be glad to be superstitious in any way that helps.

Go Pacers!

I think someone should simulate this game on NBA 09 video game and tell us what the final score was and the box so we can see how comparable it is. True this may be extremely pointless but hey may make for some interesting conversation.

ReginaldWayne

I rly hope quisy starts so we can put him on Joe John to start the game to lessen the chance he starts off hot, as hes been the past couple games. Jack on him is gna be a liability that isnt necessary. Let him come off the bench for an offensive spark. This is id DG is back and starts.

Since it's Friday the 13th I didn't want to jinx it by putting his name in the lineup. Not that I'm superstitious... :D

Coach just said Danny is out, we might see him play Sunday, if not, sometime next week.

Foster will play.

I went with other in the poll...

whenever people say something about me in a jealous way i end up losing it...almost as if its a jinx...most recently someone had commented how lucky i was to not get the cold/flu...and literally 24 hours later i got the damn flu!

Well, so far, Hibbert is looking good, and that's a good thing, because we don't seem to be hitting from the field just yet.

Going to have to step up the defense, and limit turnovers, just like always.

This game was on the list of HD games but is not showing up on my FSN HD channel. Is it because it's now being shown on NBA TV?

Is illegal defense a personal foul? It's what's listed for Roy's 2nd.

We are playin pretty good ..

Love seeing Diener and Jack out there together
Jack's been playing out of his mind lately ..

Kemo
03-13-2009, 08:11 PM
Look at the SUPERB play by Diener


I sure hope TPTB sees that Diener NEEDS to be on the floor 20-25 MPG ..

ESPECIALLY at the end of games ... and when we need to protect a lead..

TJ Ford just ran a perfect 2-1 fastbreak. He can be marvelous in the open court.

Hibbert has done real well on keeping his fouls down..

his halftime statline so far with 2 min left is ...

Points 14 on 6/8 fg

Rebounds 4

2 personal foul
0 turnovers

03-13-2009, 08:36 PM
Hibbert was fouled !!

03-13-2009, 08:40 PM
Hibbert could've gotten a foul when he challenged pachulia... got a piece of the arm there i thought

at least this way he has a couple to spare the second half, going to need it

McKeyFan

All I know is I started watching in the middle of the 3rd. We were up. Hibbert was in.

The announcers said he'd scored 14. He came out. We went down 13. Haven't seen him since.

Does it really take a rocket scientist to figure it out?

Kemo
03-13-2009, 09:28 PM
now DIENER needs to be in ..

BPump33
03-13-2009, 09:31 PM
now DIENER needs to be in ..

Our offense is stagnant. We need Diener. I don't care what anyone says about his defense, it's not like we are stopping them now.

Edit: I did like that put back attempt by T.J. Nice effort.

BPump33
03-13-2009, 09:36 PM
Everytime I challenge T.J. on here he answers nicely. So, in hope that he keeps it up, you suck T.J. :D

Roy starts...score tied 0-0.

Roy leaves at 4:13 mark, Pacers trailing 18-16 (-2).

Roy returns at the 8:29 mark with the Pacers leading 35-24, plays the rest of the half, with the Pacers going to the locker room up 48-45 (-8, -10 total).

Roy starts second half with Pacers up 3, leaves at the 7:13 mark with the Pacers trailing 58-57 (-4, -14 total)...Pacers collapse, game gets away.

I like Roy. I like Roy a lot. He played well tonight. However, the team tied the Hawks when he was on the bench, and were -14 when he was on the floor.

I don't know about the rocket scientist part, but it certainly takes watching more than a couple of minutes of the game to understand what happened.

The Pacers sucked tonight...particularly on offense, where they basically died somewhere in the middle of the second quarter.

Oh, yeah...that's three really crappy games by Daniels in a row, two moderately crappy games by Jack, and two stat-stuffer turd sandwiches by TJ...we're starting to miss Danny.

Yeah, now that we've played w/o Danny teams are game planning for us differently. They figure a few things out like: Murphy's likes open threes; Quis can't shoot from the outside; TJ will eventually self destruct. When the defensive intensity steps up, we are SOL.

MyFavMartin
03-13-2009, 10:59 PM
TJ seems to look for his shot too much rather than setting the table for others. Tough to match with the Hawks athleticism, but I hoped we'd take advantage of their lack of depth. Johnson got warmed up in the 2nd, didn't he?

Silver Lining Dept.

Roy continues to make progress. Hawks don't have length in their frontcourt. Roy was actually hurting them. The thing that gives me irrational hope about Roy is that he really does have good hands on catches.

He made one play that had me standing out of my chair. Offensive end, rebound came off high towards the middle and Roy quickly reached over and up and snagged it with one hand, then got the putback. That play could not have been made by many guys.

Dark Cloud Dept.

Troy, Marquis, and Jack all had bad games. The D of the Hawks had something to do with it. They sagged off Rush because he is still tentative on offense and doesn't drive.

Reality Dept.

For all of you calling for more minutes for Roy, take a closer look. He was gassed last night at the end of his stints. JoB was trying to give him more time out there, but Roy is not in NBA shape to go 35 minutes. Roy needs a serious conditioning program this offseason.

jeffg-body
03-14-2009, 09:05 AM
Roy did well even though he gassed out. I think the rookie wall is hitting him hard. Once he gets better conditioning he will be ok. It's hard to simulate game conditions for conditioning. I expect to see major improvements next year on this.

ReginaldWayne

Wow 7 rebs for Roy, all offensive.
