Starting the game, shooting extremely well from the field, the Pacers had the Nuggets in a state of shell-shock for the opening minutes of the first quarter. The Pacers led 11-2 before the Nuggets were able to get going behind the play of Francisco Elson who scored six points to bring Denver back within four by the end of the opening 10 minutes of play, with Indiana now leading 18-14.

Outscoring the Pacers in the second quarter, Denver now trailed 34-32. Marcus Melvin came off the bench for the Nuggets to score six points in eight minutes to help ignite Denverís run. James Jones kept the Pacers ahead, as he continued to play in the Review. Jones scored five points in only six minutes of action.

The Pacers scoring output continued to go down in the third quarter. Indiana managed only six points, shooting 21 percent from the field while Denver scored 17 points in the 10 minutes. The Nuggets took a nine point lead, with Miles Simon leading the team with six points.

Indiana didnít fair much better in the fourth quarter, failing to score in double digits. The Pacers scored only seven points and shot 32 percent from the field. And while the Nuggets didnít have a stellar 10 minutes of play, it was enough to put the Pacers away 63-47.

Francisco Elson led all scorers with 13 points and six rebounds. Art Long led the Paces with 12 points.

-Sorry, but the page freezes when I try to get the boxscore
---I guess they were pretty much trying to figure out which players to keep since they barely played Jones.

Brewer with 8 turnovers again.. nice. I really hope we can find something better to do with that roster spot this year.

Looks like Harrison didn't play because of the knee thing.

Harrison is Indy getting his knee MRIed, he will not be playing in anymore of the summer games. He should be fine though.

So we didn't use Jones or Harrison... do we have any other scoring threats on that team?

Wow Brewer leads the team with 8 rebounds! 4 assists too. Looking forward to seeing him lock down some pg's this year.

Well with him shooting 0-6 from three sure there were alot of long bounces coming back for him to pick up.

I think his D is really overrated too. But guess slightly above average D is the only thing he has going for him so gotta hype something up.

At what point do we all start conceding that Brewer really does suck? or for a better word to all his closet fans? stink... bad.. to the point his offense is so atrocious that it outweights whatever defense he might bring. I mean, cmon the guy's been in the NBA 3 years now. You think he would have spent every waking moment trying to work on his game. It does not seem so. I say they give the job to someone who cares more, and can hit a shot and wont get 7 fouls, 7 tos in 20 mins while going 0 for whatever. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

maybe he is just in a slump? but it's been a few games now and another awful showing.

He has gone from wildcard to duece seven offsuit IMO. That's the cards you fold.

FYI, in Charlotte's game against Chicago, Kapono had 32 (21 in the first quarter), Woods had 17 and 12, and Peanut Butter had 17 as well. And they still LOST! :shakehead:

As for the P's, everyone's slamming Brewer, but fail to note that Wright was 1 of 5, with 2 turnovers and 0 rebounds and 0 assists. At least Sigg was active.

Don't think anyone really failed to notice it. Wright is the last pick in the draft and hasn't been in the NBA for three years so at least he has somewhat of an excuse for not playing well vs summer leaguers.

Has anyone got a box score from this game? or do you know how Matt Neilsen went for the Nugz? He is an Aussie looking to get NBA contract, has been playing pretty well so far.

Look, the guy ISN"T looking very good, for sure. But to say that his defense is slightly above average is idiotic.

He's also not capable of locking down big time pg's.

He's not capable of locking me down. Im 6'3" and 220 and i could probably take him in a game of 21.

Do you plan on watching a lot of CBA games next season?

I'm sure that we would have won, if we had Harrison :rolleyes:

IF we wouldve had a decent point guard who can make a pass we might have made 50 points and maybe Harrsison would play better.
