As the Pacers called a timeout at the 6:22 mark of the first<br>quarter, they were trailing 18-17. Quick math projected the<br>game to be in the 140′s. This isnít uncommon. The NBA is a<br>game of runs, so looking at any six minute stretch can make<br>for some funky forecasts -most of which have little or no<br>resemblance to the final results. Still, for a fleeting moment<br>there, I had hope. Now, I donít want 153-145 games on a<br>nightly basis, but every once in a while Ė usually when the<br>seasonís about at the three...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s (http://www.eightpointsnineseconds.com/2011/03/game-61-recap-rerun/)</TD></TR></TABLE>

I love our uniforms and these ones were designed to create the new era.

These scream Danny Granger era and they look good on Paul George and Roy Hibbert.

In all honesty, we have the best uniforms and the Warriors tried to copy us by making the colors and collar the same but theres are the worst in the NBA.

I really like our regular home and road uniform, but the gold ones are too light to be worn against a team in white, but they're not terrible.

I tend to wear a gold jersey on the road so I stand out.

A different looking alternative tweeked throwback Flo Jo navy uni would be cool.

For the record, I have league pass broadband, and I hear the other team's commentators a lot. And Every commentator seems to like McRoberts a lot. Seems like the cats out of the bag, and to keep him we'd probably have to pay more than we want to.

schedule loss more than likely tonight. 4 in 5. 5 in 7.

Also Hayes is the type of defender that gives Roy a lot of problems. And hayes is a very good low post defender, very good

I agree, well outside of Danny. He'd look better if he wasn't trapped/played tight all the time because our talent is so terrible.

-Darren Collison is TJ Ford. I have no hopes that he'll get his game back, and even when he was playing good the opposing point guards were playing better. Go get Raymond Felton or start Lance next year.

-Brandon Rush is terrible. I'm not going to go any farther than that. I still think that his defense is grossly overrated and even if it isn't than it doesn't make up for his complete lack of desire on offense. Please go get someone like OJ, Jamal, etc..

-Danny is fine, but he is treated like a star because we don't have anyone that can step up.

-Josh is a bad starter, and we need a guy who can outperform most power forwards in the league.. Even if it takes gambling on ZBo it's worth it. Josh is good when he is "On" but he is so woefully inconsistent that we never know which Josh we are going to get. Sometimes I forget that he is on the floor.

-Roy is good, but he should only be playing 24-26 minutes a night and we need a very good backup center.

-We need a backup point guard with defense and ability to hit shots. Price has the defense on lock down, but he needs to get healthy so that he can hit his shots.

-Paul needs time to grow so he should be our sixth man getting 28 or so minutes a night. But this year he should be starting because Rush is not a starting shooting guard and Paul deserves better than Tyler, DJ, and Price stealing all of the shots and shot clock.

-We need a backup center that gives more energy than Jeff.. Jeff hasn't been bringing it lately and he is really showing his age.

Unless he agrees to a 1 yr deal with a team the Clippers match and then they would have to trade him. Because they would lose him for nothing the next year.

I think we need an offensive system change.

I feel like we are still somewhat built on JOB's framework he left. There is no reason at halftime to only have our leading assist man have 2 total assists. We saw how many Collison could get last year in NO, AJ has better vision and still can't get many, and Lance seems to get a lot of assists only when he wins his 1v1 matchup aka not really running the play but making a play by himself.

The talented player I really want is OJ Mayo.

I've become really interested in bringing him in ever since we were close to it.

I'm still confident he's going to be a Pacer at the start of next season.

And how about we let out players develop some more? What happened to the school of thought "we're okay with losing as long as the young guys play"? Game threads are ridiculous on here. This team is extremely young. Are we the most talented? Of course not, but we have some damn nice pieces. They all just happen to be rookies thru third year players plus Granger.

Well, good news is it is in Arm's reach. I think Collison has to see limited minutes to win this game. And the same goes for Hans and Dahntay if they continue to not shoot so well.

Dantay Tyler and Rush are horrible

See, I told y'all before the season I didn't want TJ mentoring AJ and DC.

Now AJ can't make a three to save his life, and DC is...uh....playing a bit too much like TJ.

For the record I never hopped on that "I just want the young guys" bandwagon. I want them to win and I want talent. That's why I never complained about Mike playing because he was helping us most of the time.

I don't get what's going on with collison. he was doing really well then just started deflating. Injury? personal problems? Sophomore slump?

There will always be something to complain about, and people who love nothing more than complaining.

Word of advice: You'll enjoy the games much more if you avoid game threads.

The talent is in the young guys. You can't have it both ways.

And I know I have seen you complain about Mike and have said PG should start.
