glad to see murph isn't hurt that bad. It's win or go home from here on out! GO PACERS!

Pacemaker
03-28-2009, 02:03 PM
I keep on asking myself if we should hinder our draft possibilities by winning these games. Don't get we wrong I LOVE to see the Pacers win but from now on every game makes a lot of difference in the drafting positioning but not as much in our hopes of making the playoffs which to me are pretty slim. I can't make up my mind on this matter. In the meantime Go Pacers !!!! :dance:

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 02:13 PM
yes Rush! JJ taught him that.

imawhat
03-28-2009, 02:20 PM
Wow..Tyrus REALLY going at Ben Gordon going into the timeout. He had to be pulled back a little bit.

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 02:20 PM
Rush is st8 dominating.

LG33
03-28-2009, 02:20 PM
Rush with 10 points of the Pacers' 12 anyone?

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:21 PM
WOW! GO RUSH!!!

omg rush with 18 1st quarter pnts.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:34 PM
Rush gonna go for 40 tonight!

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 02:35 PM
I cant wait till this game is over so i can go back and re-watch Rush's 1st quarter performance, and hopefully it continues.

Pacemaker
03-28-2009, 02:38 PM
This may be Brandon's break-out game !!!

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 02:39 PM
Granger needs to come back in.

Also, I have no idea why we are playing Maceo.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:39 PM
Granger needs to come back in.

because hibbert has 2 fouls and no murph

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 02:40 PM
because hibbert has 2 fouls and no murph

So play McBob?

MrSparko
03-28-2009, 02:43 PM
Both Rush's and Granger's three pointers go in and out :(

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 02:44 PM
cool the small line up seems to be working well. Just let granger play the 3 and rush the 2 jeez

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:47 PM

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 02:47 PM
Chicago takes the lead.....

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:49 PM
poorly officiated game btw

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:49 PM
NICE ONE GRANGER!!!

LG33
03-28-2009, 02:50 PM
I love how it takes 4 or 5 minutes to build a lead and then only 4 or 5 possessions to lose it.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 02:50 PM
So play McBob?

we might not have a choice. we probrably will here pretty soon.

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 02:50 PM
so they start the quarter on a 21 - 4 run.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 02:55 PM
Granger and Rush have 38 of our 46 points.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 02:56 PM
Ford and Jack have played very well together.

Quis
03-28-2009, 03:04 PM
Anyone have the link to the website that lists all the game streams? ADsomething....

MrSparko
03-28-2009, 03:04 PM
TJ!

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 03:09 PM
Cool thing Danny did for the kids at the elementary school.

Dr. Hibbert
03-28-2009, 03:22 PM
See? That's what I want to see more of from Hibbert in the future. His length is just nuts, he CAN make those plays around the rim.

Dr. Hibbert
03-28-2009, 03:26 PM
Admittedly I just tuned in for the second half, but Hibbert looks unusually controlled today. Really solid game on both ends of the court.

Dr. Hibbert
03-28-2009, 03:31 PM
Jack with the bad...cross-court bounce pass...

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 03:34 PM
Game, Bulls.

Dr. Hibbert
03-28-2009, 03:34 PM
Careless, stupid, stupid basketball. This team does not look like it wants the (small) chance to be in the playoffs.

Dr. Hibbert
03-28-2009, 03:37 PM
TJ with a patent turnover. LOL he wonders why he comes off the bench.

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 03:38 PM
We've fell apart.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:39 PM
this is getting ugly...

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 03:40 PM
Get TJ the out of the damn game. He really screwed over Rasho on the last possession.

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 03:41 PM
Get TJ the out of the damn game. He really screwed over Rasho on the last possession.
Then he scores a 3.....

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:41 PM
tj and brandon with the 3's!!

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 03:41 PM
Ford is playing too much one on five basketball.

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 03:42 PM
But yeah the Bulls are blowing it open....

idioteque
03-28-2009, 03:43 PM

Their Pacers link doesn't work today, but it usually does, so for future reference here you go.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:43 PM
we can't get a break!

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:44 PM
only down 5. It's possible to still win it. Just gotta play with much more intensity.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 03:48 PM
Graham sucks, every minute he is on the court is a total waste.

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 03:49 PM
So about actually winning the game.....

We'll be lucky to not lose by 15.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:49 PM
that is a terrible 5 out there. why don't we have hib and jack out there?

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 03:50 PM
Admittedly I just tuned in for the second half, but Hibbert looks unusually controlled today. Really solid game on both ends of the court.

Hibbert has been rly killing us tonight. Not playing good D, and TY Thomas blocked him 4 times, 2 dunk attemtps

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:54 PM
DEFENSE!

pianoman
03-28-2009, 03:57 PM
8-0 RUN!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!

03-28-2009, 04:01 PM
here we go!

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:01 PM
This number 33 guy is pretty clutch.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:03 PM
Foster blows the wide open layup.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 04:04 PM
SMOTHERED CHICKEN!

pianoman
03-28-2009, 04:05 PM
..too bad it didn't count...

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:05 PM
Ford's silly *** foul takes away from a great Granger block.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:07 PM
Hellz yeah Brandon Rush.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 04:07 PM

c'mon guys, that was a really tough shot for foster

Trader Joe

That was cute that Diener was sitting on his fiance's lap.

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 04:12 PM
The epitome of letdown, :thepacers

John Salmons just ended our season. :(

At least Brandon Rush has confidence now.

bellisimo
03-28-2009, 04:12 PM
now they're on a run....the wheels are coming off folks...

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:13 PM
John Salmons got two prayers answered in the past two minutes.

pianoman
03-28-2009, 04:17 PM
lets get one of our prayers answered!

pianoman
03-28-2009, 04:19 PM
it's over....

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:19 PM
Granger's easy layup taken away because Jeff Foster doesn't have to be defended on the offensive end.

bellisimo
03-28-2009, 04:19 PM
Ty Thomas has blocked our playoffs hope...

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:22 PM
Was that really our play out of the timeout?

Lord Helmet

Great game......not

Trader Joe

When is Dunleavy set to return next season?

How would he have helped in this game?

pianoman

goodbye playoffs. Hello draft!

Team played a fine game.

Yeah, but I'm tired of moral victories.

I want to know how long Rush will be starting next season, is all. Cool your jets.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:24 PM

Whatever.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:25 PM

My jets are cool.

Rush will hopefully be starting all season regardless of when Dunleavy comes back, IMO.

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 04:26 PM
Team played a fine game.

there was a 20 point turn around.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:28 PM
there was a 20 point turn around.

Yeah from the first to fourth quarter. Anyone who thought we were going to cruise just cause we had a 14 point lead at the end of the first quarter hasn't watched much basketball.

Trophy
03-28-2009, 04:30 PM
I thought we played a good game especially good game for Brandon but it wasn't enough

ReginaldWayne
03-28-2009, 04:34 PM
Yeah from the first to fourth quarter. Anyone who thought we were going to cruise just cause we had a 14 point lead at the end of the fourth quarter hasn't watched much basketball.

we got pretty dominated after the 1st 12 minutes of play. They beat us by 10 in the 2nd, 9 in the 3rd, only 1 in the 4th, but if we hadnt gone on that 9-0 run, it would have been a lot more.

Lord Helmet
03-28-2009, 04:37 PM
Whatever.
Look, I'm just pissed we lost. I know we played great. Rush and Granger were great. I especially liked Rush's defense.

Trader Joe
03-28-2009, 04:39 PM
we got pretty dominated after the 1st 12 minutes of play. They beat us by 10 in the 2nd, 9 in the 3rd, only 1 in the 4th, but if we hadnt gone on that 9-0 run, it would have been a lot more.

I don't even know what this phrase means. People use it all the time, but it makes no sense. You know what, we did go on that 9-0 run.

Hey if Chicago hadn't outscored use by 9 in the 3rd and 10 in the 2nd we would have won easily.

I voted for Love of the T-Wolves. I'd love to have Love as a Pacer.

Justin Tyme
03-28-2009, 05:25 PM
Funny, neither Salmons or Ty Thomas ended the Pacers playoff hopes. The Pacers playoff hopes were ended long before this game. Get use to talking about the draft and possible trades until the start of next season.

Just a reminder that once a teams season is over they can begin making trades with other teams who's season is over with as well. For the Pacers, that will be April 16th. Let the trade, FA, and who to draft scenarios begin.

03-28-2009, 05:30 PM

I don't know. I've watched a ton of basketball, and I've not once seen a team that was leading by 14 points at the end of the fourth quarter cruise to victory.
