Barkely: Pacers should have won last game. Were up ten with three minutes to go. Granger gave Rose too much respect by naming superheroes he would need to become to defend DRose.

Said Pacers threw up bad shots in the last three minutes to lose the game.

We need to give them a reason to start blowing the whistle consistently for our side.

He does sound unprepared for sure. But you are a lucky man to have missed the ESPN guys in game one. They were like the Celtics guys in terms of being homers, which I think is inexcusable for a national broadcasting team.

That last foul by Danny was actually Tyler's failure to follow his man into the paint.

That may be, but Granger wasn't in position where he could have done anything. It would have been better if he just let him score.

I don't see how CHI is going to get very far in the Playoffs. Carlos isn't tough enough and Keith Bogans is pathetic.

That's the type of team they are. They're a physical grind it out team with a superstar/MVP candidate at PG. They are the type of team that can neutralize Miami and their Big 3.

That said, they aren't an explosive team that runs you off the floor. They're a better matchup for the Pacers than the Heat/Celts. They're easier for the P's to defend.

But they can definitely go far in the playoffs.

For me I am happy that PG is taking this like defense. That shows he knows his limitations on offense and knows what he needs to contribute to win this year. For me this is one of the biggest good things we've seen.

No doubt

Therein lies the difference between Rush and PG. If Rush's shot is off , he generally disappears. If PG is off on offense, he find ways to contrubite on defense

Thats not even taking into consideration he is gooing to be one of the best rebounding SG/SF in the league

Here's a thought. Every time Rose gets to the line the Bulls fans chant MVP (I would agree with that sentiment).
