I really hope T.J. Ford gets a lot of playing time tonight. I think we all feel sorry for the guy, and he deserves to be recognized.

He was a true professional during this whole period, and I wish him the best of luck in the future.

This game should be interesting I think as long as the Magic are still playing up to their standards. The last game was the game that got Jimmy fired and that Bird said was over in the first 2 minutes.

Well he got fired after the game in Chicago, but it was the Orlando game that he said that they lost after 2 minutes.

That being said, I doubt Howard plays at all or maybe like 6-8 minutes in the first half at most. And also I doubt Granger plays that much either, maybe like 15-20 mins at most, but you'll see the young guys and Dunleavy get lots of minutes.

Well, Ford is most definitely going to run as far from Indiana as possible.

I think we might sign Dun again. It's just a definitely won't be back to a maybe won't be back.

Yeah because this game is representative of the Pacers playing with Granger off of the bench.

While I don't agree with having him come off the bench this is in no way the same situation as him coming off of the bench.

mattie

It is no wonder they're getting killed. Also Coach Vogels worst coached game of the year.

If you're not going to tell Paul to shoot, the ball, to encourage him to do both what he wants to and the team needs him to do? Then what is the point of even playing him? Rush is better at standing in the corner doing nothing and at least he can shoot the three ball well.

Mr_Smith

Why is SVG so eager to win this thing. He's playing his starters regular minutes.

I'm not worried at all about going into the playoffs looking like this. The guys know they can play way better than this and hopefully will give it their all in the playoffs.

I did not see the game nor read the entire thread, but I just looked at the box score and.....ICK!

Hibbert: 5 fouls in 9 minutes? The game was supposedly not going to be meaningless for him b/c he was supposed to be developing his post game and was going to try his best to not be dunked on by Dwight Howard. So I guess Roy used his fouls judiciously whenever Dwight threatened with a dunk? I'd say there was zero confidence boost with this way of thinking. Also, I hope TJ posts better stats in a game that matters.

I didn't get to actually watch the game, but knowing Hibberts history against Howard I kind of doubt that. Typically Hibbert holds up well against Howard, and even out played Howard a couple of times.

We won't be paying Tinsley either. I guess it was worth it to pay Posey for one more year to get Collison. That's another 6 million gone once Posey is done or is it less than that? That's enough money to re-sign Hibbert and Hansbrough I hope.
