Surely somebody saw this game.

Why was Pollard out? Their lines don't look great, but how did JJ / Harrison do?

JJ was ehh...He did make at least one good shot, a three; and from where I was positioned, he almost looked like Reggie shooting from downtown.

Harrison played quite well. Started the game off with a slam dunk. I was impressed by his defense.

Pollard went trick-or-treating last Sunday; that's all I know....

Just got back from the game. Nothing really new to report. Pollard did not play due to back problems. Harrison started, played fairly well, he certainly can get tough rebounds. But he has to to get into better shpae after a few times down the floor he is spent. If he ever gets into great shape and gets some experience, who knows how good he can be.

Pacers had way too many turnovers, but that was partly due to Dick Bevetta calling the game, he loves to call three seconds, offensive fouls and traveling.

Tinsley was throwing the ball all over the place tonight though.

Interesting trend, the pacers made their best spurt of the game like they did the night before with J.O and Artest both on the bench.

Freddie Jones was on fire from the three point line tonight, he has looked so so good this season and when you consider he was injuured all summer, I wonder how good he is going to be.

Jackson got it going offensively, that was good to see.

Did the Pacers take too many threes, Yes, but that was partly because the Bulls played a lot of zone.

Bulls played hard, but they lack talent and experience of any kind.

They said during the game that Pollard had a sore back. Harrison didn't play terribly, but he's still doing the rookie thing of picking up cheap fouls.

Freddie was freakin' awesome tonight. Four straight three pointers and the Bulls kept leaving him open.

JJ played decently. Played within the system and played pretty good D to boot.

Harrison was decent. I was shocked that he started, but I guess Polly was hurt.

No Bender tonight.

Tinsley was off, but still amassed 12 assists.

JO got a double-double off the bench.

SJax added a very quiet 24 points.

Ronnie was in foul trouble most of the night, but looked good early and in the shootaround an hour or so before game time.

The Bulls like to gun threes. Luol Deng was incredible, and Ben Gordan looked very good too. Hinrich fouled out in the 3rd, I beleive. He wasn't much of a factor tonight.

Our offense looks improved over last year, but our defense is a mess right now. It just looks like a shell of what it did last year.

Shade I agree with you about our defense. It is no where near what it needs to be. But that is understandable not having Foster, and with J.O being in and out the interior defense has been poor. Pollard and Croshere are just not as good defensively as J.O and Foster. And the loss of Al has hurt the interior defense a little.

But the perimeter defense is better than ever

I especially enjoyed the three consecutive offensive fouls on Chicago...

I can't believe how well Deng played. I saw him at Duke, and was 99% positive that he'd made a huge mistake coming out that early. Now, I think he could be an all-star by year 3 or 4. Maybe Duke's system was stifling his game? And how do the Bulls NOT start him?

He looked very good, but I'm not convinced he is as good a shooter as he appeared to be last night. He looks like a great athlete though.

The guy I really wonder about is Ben Gordon. He is the guy we were supposeably trying to trade up to get as a SG. The guy is real small, no way he's 6-3. Fred is much bigger than him and some people say he's to small for a full time SG. If Ben can't play PG I don't see him being much of a NBA player in the long run.

Gill blew my mind with his effort/performance.
