I hope someone sat and showed the game tape of Last year to Roy.

He can play well against Howard, and he knows it. Go Roy!

I remember when we lost to the Magic earlier this season and it actually felt weird to lose.

The crowd was big and it sounded like there wasn't even a Magic fan there.

We kept it close and it was fun to watch.

Hopefully we can continuously see it through out seasons.

I like that one. I hope it's Hibbert though. If there has ever been a Pacer player in need of having a breakout game, it is Roy right now.

Trophy
01-26-2011, 06:40 PM
I have a feeling Roy will step up tonight. No matter what kind of slump, he tends to step up against Dwight Howard.

Danny will score a lot tonight after probably feeling embarrassed after scoring 8 points last game.

I also think DC will get back on track tonight.

The question is, will everyone play like they care?

we can have multiple players having their best game :laugh:

I hope Roy has a big game more than I hope AJ does though. Roy needs it more.

Deadshot
01-26-2011, 06:43 PM
While Roy has actually played Dwight really well in the past, the main factor is that Dwight usually racks up 2 quick fouls against us. We need to be physical from the start. But I think the idea that tonight would be a breakout game for Roy is just goofy. I hope I'm wrong though.

Just one question and then I am finished; Are you purposely trying to get called out? If so, congratulations. Blind pessimism at its best.

01-26-2011, 06:58 PM
Magic lost to Detroit at home on Monday and are ticked, Pacers probably at the lowest point in the season so far. Always hard that first game back off a road trip. Everything points to a beat down.

I just have that feeling too, though!! Maybe we see a win, something to turn things around.

Calm down, I'm hardly the poster child of pessimism on PD.

I believe it will be an ugly game, this team has shown me nothing the past what, 5-6 games and frankly I'm pissed, because they were a better team earlier and a fun team to watch.

I'm no worse than the people that blame every single problem in the world on O'Brien, either.

:blush: I should not have been so harsh.

Besides the last game, we have had leads throughout the first half. We'll probably lose a lead, but I don't think we'll come out very bad. It's frustrating for myself as well.

I have to agree there. I'm one of those guys, but when it gets ridiculous and doesn't support evidence and facts, I'd just rather not open up that can of worms and point them out, so to speak.

Paul has really gotten a lot better with his defense, he knows where he should be on the floor and seems much more comfortable than he looked at the beginning of the season.

What a great play, George with the steal, Collison with the pass and Hansbrough with the dunk!

I do like that lineup! Granger is playing like ****, but he'll come around, he has proven that over the years. I am worried about Roy though - we are playing way better with Foster in the post. But in the end, he gives us little on the offensive end, so we are easier to predict without that inside-out game.

It's probably just as ridiculous to him as it is to us.

It just takes me back to what Mackey was saying about Jim and the players no knowing what are they going to do and PG saying it confirms this even more.

Anyone else noticed how Mike Dunleavy's hair has made a tremendous resurgence the past couple of years? He used to have a huge bald spot and looked like he was well on his way to looking like Mike Sr.

Here's the question..

Will we continue with the zone, or will we actually adjust?

I don't know, all I know is that Posey will be back in the game ;)

I cant believe how much **** I got over the Ryan Anderson thread, and now he is killing us, told you so. :pAll together now! Never judge a player by how he does against the Pacers.

Continue with the zone apparently.

Really?

Can we stop playing Dun and DC together? I even think DC might not look as bad defensively if he's matched with PG. In fact..why don't we just give PG all of the Shooting guard minutes..

It's the scheme of the defense to not close out on the shooters. That's obvious. We're packing it in to no avail.

What happened to Roy's confidence and his ability to knock down jumpers?

It's basically like watching men (them) against boys (us).

With these past three games I'm expecting every three the opponent throws up to go in.

Nah, he needs some of that basketball IQ to rub off on him.

Hibbert is just having an awful game. He hasn't been in the low post at all. Frustrating..
