TJ has been playing a good game by not dribbling and getting the ball to Roy, Hansbrough, and Danny.

Rush isn't being very assertive and TJ continues to be sickening from the line.

Oh my freaking god, why is James Posey in? It's getting Toby Flenderson sickening every time I see him on the court.

Bad shot, Danny. THATS IT ROY!

Dunleavy's cross-court pass\turnover is exactly the kind of thing you wouldn't expect from a guy with a good basketball IQ. I have no idea what he was thinking.

And TJ Ford's patented dribble-up-the-floor-roll-to-the-right-miss-a-jumper is everything I hated about last year's Pacers offense.

It's a function of playing time... every young big does it.

It's why I wanted him to get more PT last year, so he'd outgrow that stuff this year. It's just something that doesn't get fixed in practice.

He was thinking "I'm not passing to TJ"

I don't think he likes playing with him. I don't know that..but just from what I've seen.

Also, I don't think that Ford shot is really supposed to be a part of the offense.

Well Danny wasn't going to get a shot off, and a pass to James Posey while standing still is asking for a pick. Don't forget how good Rick Adelman is at coaching. He made sure that he pinched the heck out of Posey and Danny.

Besides a lob play, I don't see how we could have gotten a better shot.

Considering there was .5 left, I thought Josh got a great look. Houston wasn't expecting it. It's not like the game was on the line. Give JOB credit or at least don't complain about the play.

Other than that game against philly I agree, the loss against the bucks pissed me off. But can't say we didn't give a. Pretty decent effort, and the loss against the spurs we hung with them for about 3 1/2 quarters and I think if we played hansbrough that game maybe even won.

It's the coaching.. Rick pushes out our players just a half-step farther than they are accustomed to and it throws them off. Most of our players don't have the ability to get into the paint thus the reason to play such tight defense. Houston doesn't really have any shot blockers, but it doesn't really matter because we don't have any players that excel at driving into the lane such as Marquis Daniels.

seems like most of our points tonight are coming inside the paint. no one really has been able to get good looks on the perimeter, including dun, and rush isnt looking much for his jumpshot.

tough fought game so far, looking forward to the 2nd half!

I have waited a long, long time to see us have a threat in the paint. Even Jermaine didn't do it very well.

He played good in the preseason, we liked what we saw, so we benched him.

so then nothing is actually wrong, its a coaches decision not to play him. i get we are "showcasing" tj or whatever, but i think aj should at least be dressed.

i agree w/ most, tj has played much better this year.. but i like the natural pg skills price brings to the court. he at least deserves some PT.

guess dressing solo is needed since were so weak on the frontcourt.

Everyone likes to complain about one or two given players, and Posey has been one of those big targets, but we need him just for games like this. In winning teams, everyone serves a purpose, if the Pacers can realize this, then we will instantly be a better team.

For as much as people hated on Posey this year, he's played great tonight. Just like I would expect a veteran to. Makes smart plays, gets the ball to the right guys, and hits the big shot when we need one. He's the type of player who could put a contender over the top, or a team like ours into the playoffs. He'll win us a couple games this year.
