The Pacers lost in New Orleans badly (108-96) in a contest<br>where the final score was not very indicative of the whole<br>game. The end result was pretty apparent toward the<br>beginning of the third quarter as the Hornets padded a<br>lead north of 20 points.

A flurry of outside shots got the<br>Pacers much closer in the waning minutes, but the game<br>was never...CONTINUE READING RONALD EUGENE (http://www.eightpointsnineseconds.com/2011/04/game-78-recap-despite-blowout-loss-pacers-inch-closer-to-playoff-spot/)</TD></TR></TABLE>

We're simply a much better team than the wizards, they have some elite talent, but sheesh. We're both young teams but their awareness makes us seem like vets.

No, because he's actually pretty good at getting them.

His biggest problem is consistency, as well as getting hung up on screens.

If the Magic lose tonight, that's pretty embarrassing for them.

Pacers have lost to teams playing this bad defense. The reason they're blowing them out is the way they're running the offense.

They're obviously moving the ball extremely well. When Paul plays this assertive it changes the entire tone of the Pacers offense. He's by far the best penetrator on the team. He needs the ball that simple. Against a good defense, of course the pacers wouldn't be playing this well. But they would still be playing good, and we wouldn't see Granger come out and miss his first 6 shots as we've seen him do so many times.

I'll tell you what; I've been impressed with DC's defense the past five games or so. Ever since the Boston game.

Pacers have lost to teams playing this bad defense. The reason they're blowing them out is the way they're running the offense.

They're obviously moving the ball extremely well. When Paul plays this assertive it changes the entire tone of the Pacers offense. He's by far the best penetrator on the team. He needs the ball that simple. Against a good defense, of course the pacers wouldn't be playing this well. But they would still be playing good, and we wouldn't see Granger come out and miss his first 6 shots as we've seen him do so many times.

No, they haven't. Either the Wizards are not guarding the guy who takes the shot or they foul them and send them to the line. This is the apex of horrendous defense.

Don't take anything away from this game tonight, positive or negative. The Wizards are playing absolutely no defense and fouling like they are the Indiana Hoosiers or something.
That is what the Wizards are really good at-fouling.

Well we used to call the 2nd unit with Tyler and Paul the Goon squad...maybe it is just me, but I think this one should be named the Poop squad.

At this point, I wouldn't risk putting starters back in.

I don't care if Posey plays garbage minutes.

I'm quite enjoying Mark and Austin's repartee about nicknames. Austin's growing on me. But still, I'm glad for Slick's return.

Just realized it. Posey is back to being dressed instead of Lance because he knows how to win in the playoffs. We're just getting him warmed up.

Sorry if someone else mentioned it and I missed it.

Bobcats somehow forced the game into OT. I expect them to win in OT now.

Orlando and the Hawks series is really anyone's series. Both teams have kinda been lackluster. Not good enough for the top tier, but better than the bottom tier.
