Come on Roy. Show them who's boss.

Should be a good matchup at the PF position also. Troy held Lewis to limited shooting last time. That's when his defense is good. When we play a team that has a tall shooter.

Naptown_Seth

It has to be asked - are Danny, Troy and Dun in full-on phone it in mode at this point?

Danny's made some lazy FGAs, not just being off but not strong stuff on the inside. And Dun just made one of the softest entry passes to Roy for a steal you could imagine, it was almost without a care at all.

There's more to the game than just hot or cold shooting. Roy and Rush, they get cold but their games look like their games, they are doing or trying to do things exactly like they always do. In fact it stands out so far like those two are seriously the only 2 that give a crap out there.

Roy and Rush, two guys who almost always give effort even when they play bad, have not been out with injuries, but are the 2 guys that get jerked around by the coach more than anyone. Go figure.

Naptown_Seth
01-20-2010, 08:26 PM
Troy just literally picked for Vince Carter, he ran right in front of Rush as he was trying to track down Vince after his own miss gave Vince a headstart. Instead of helping Rush and denying the pass to Vince, he just jogged right into Danny's lane and watched the dunk unfold.

Details make the difference.

Dun gets blown right past by Barnes on the dribble off of Dun tipping the pass away. No way Barnes should beat him to that ball let alone drive right by him like nothing.

Naptown_Seth
01-20-2010, 08:31 PM
I really, really hope we don't trade Brandon away.
Obviously I agree. I accept that he won't bomb away like CDR, but good lord do I want more smart players ON BOTH ENDS like Rush, Price and Roy. I mean Roy still makes mistakes, but he's clearly getting better about holding off on chasing some blocks/steals and staying on his feet.

Then again you have to give to get and if Rush buys you $30m in cap space next year...well that's pretty valuable. We'd hate it years later though.

I've hated the GSW trade from day 1 and still do. I think of all the times over the years people tried to convince me that it wasn't so bad. What a cap killing move of lame defense and losing that move was.

Somehow the Warriors managed to trade both Al and Jackson just fine, and didn't have to combine them or take back huge 4-5 year deals.

Naptown_Seth
01-20-2010, 08:34 PM
Yeah, this is a loss. The interest now is can they keep it under 25 points. It's going to be close.

Also we can take bets on Danny fouling out, more when than if. I'll say 7 minutes left in the 4th.

Bets on when McBob and/or Diener play? Hmm, maybe mid-3rd when JOB is finally so disgusted he goes against his own instincts.

But GSW have always been such a strong franchise that they had a huge position of strength from which to "negotiate" us up the wazoo. :)

I think if that was a straight up SJack for Dun swap that actually would have been the best thing for both teams. But oh well cant re write history.

See my thing was I complained BEFORE the deal not to do something dumb, and as I've always said, why so freaking soon. Work it till the deadline.

That's why I don't mind patience this year.

"The Pacers win this deal if Ike Diogu pans out like some think he will"
It makes me ill to hear it still.

01-20-2010, 08:40 PM
Man I see no effort what so ever on the defensive end. Just another reason to tank this season. With a top pick you might be able to pick up a player who can immediately send one of these scrubs to the bench. Instead of a player at 13 who will just be good enought to play as a back up to these scrubs.

Naptown_Seth

Well Gortat might make a game out of it. ;)

Aw crap, now comes Anderson.

The LA thing is important because some would excuse the Pacers for back to back road games, but this is Miami to Orlando, much better weather, and the Magic just got back from a really long flight and a West coast trip.

Custom made for upsets normally. Makes the beating that much worse.

And if I've got to hear about injuries because of Tyler....:mad:



Again, Danny on the take or not?

AlexAustin

Down 37 points the last 2 nights after the first quarter is amazingly bad.

Hibbert needs to choose his spots better when passing - especially if it's to a cutter.

Tanking Tanking! Why would the Pacers have to tank? They have a knack to lose w/o doing it on purpose.

Please Bird don't make any trades to better this team this season, the Pacers need the #5 pick for the future! You know the future where the Pacers have at winning team.

Never going to happen.....JO'B will just continue to go with the "We live and die by the 3pt shot" method of Coaching. We'll have Granger, BRush, Murphy, AJ and Watson jacking up 3pt shots until about 5 minutes in the 4th QTR :rolleyes:

Of course, two against Philly should clear that up later this week. But still, 3 is shocking.

GD is Price nice. Great hesitation to get the blow by, gets to a big at the rim and gives him a pause move too before passing safely away and getting the foul called.

Good old Troy, I knew I could count on him from getting my hopes up by letting it get back to 20 points. Nice layup miss, very subtle on the tanking meter.

well..positives....at least Danny's shot is back..and...did anyone really expect them to win anyway?

On a side note, this board is really really up and down. When the team wins "OMG WE'RE GUNNA MAKE THE PLAYOFFS"

When we lose, it's "Worst team in the league"

Please..all this team is, is a jump shooting team. When we're shooting well, we can win, when we aren't..we won't.

Live by the three, die by the three.

Sir nothing. You're not alone, and I purposely worded it the way I did to reflect that. It's not the first time I've said something, either.

Furthermore, it's not something I would say boo about if it was just my personal taste talking; it literally hurts my eyes. That's worth saying something about.

Plain ol' green is great

Dark Green is good, too

Yea, and that Danny's been playing bad recently, until tonight..he just sucks too. Why don't we get rid of him.

Rush has a bad game too every other night..he can goo too..:rolleyes:

Roy was terrible tonight too..he's not starter material.

Troy's defense on Howard was pretty good. He was bodying up. (I'm not just saying that)

I don't get why they wait so late in the game to turn everything around.

Are we so dis-illusioned with losing now that we don't even care to create a Post-Game thread since all we are going to talk about is the same things? :suicide4:

Nothing new here......1st half...we started out the same way we did in the game against Miami. We fell flat on the offensive end in the 1st half while allowing the Magic to score 60+ points ( which is truly pathetic ).

We fell too far behind and we aren't good enough to catch up ( at least against good teams ). I think that we played much better....especially on defense....in the 2nd half. Unfortunately, you can probably easily convince me that the Magic were mailing it in during the 3rd QTR. By the time we caught up by 8 points towards the end....it was too late.

Before anyone says it....I'll bring it up....playing McRoberts any minutes wouldn't have made much of a difference. We're just not that good. My level of cynicsm is getting near it's all-time high when it comes to this team.

It would not have made any difference to tonight's game, obviously. On other teams, the coaches literally empty their benches in blowout situations in recognition of the long grind of an NBA season. In the longer term it does make a difference with a continued heavy schedule. The deeper the team goes into its bench, the fresher that the better players will be for when the opportunity to be competitive arises, and shots will fall more consistently and more defense will be able to be played due to fresher legs overall. Even if McRoberts is 12th on the depth chart above only the injured Foster and Diener and the banished TJ (who oddly was listed as active tonight), all 12 active players should at least play some if for no other reason than to conserve the energy of the starters and reduce risk of further injuries.

All Im saying to me it came off a little harsh since I believe that was the first time I was told I was doing the wrong color

Thats why I hate emails because you dont know the tone of someones words

Seriously though , and this is not a dis but if your eyes are truly that sensitive to the color I believe you might want to have that looked at

You inferred he wasn't a steal and couldn't possibly be starting material because of one bad game. I pointed out Roy and even Granger have had bad games.

No one's "annoiting" AJ, just saying they can see the potential there. Jeesh, but if you'd like to continue to dwell on the negatives, go right ahead.
