:brick: INJURY REPORT :dead:
George HIll is out for the Pacers. Jeff Foster is questionable for the Pacers. Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, and Brendan Haywood are all day to day for the Mavs but are expected to play.

And now for our sponsored section of the game thread brought to you by Jack Link's Beef Jerky...


THE MESSIN' WITH SASQUATCH KEYS TO THE GAME

http://adsoftheworld.com/files/guitar-big.jpg


MASH unit. The Mavs have been dealing with some injury problems to 3 key rotation players. Marion, Odom, and Haywood are all expected to go tonight, but they may not be 100%.

Dirk's downfall? Since returning from a knee injury Sunday against the Spurs, Dirk Nowitzki has been terrible. Shooting terribly from the floor and averaging only 9 PPG. Will he get off the snide tonight against the Pacers or is something bothering our good friend Herman?

Rick Carlilse's Coaching Clinic. IMO, Rick is the only reason this team is currently at 14-9. They have not played exceedingly well and their best player is in a slump that makes Danny Granger's start to the season look like a barn burner, while also dealing with injury issues. IMO, if the talk about our young leagues and athleticism being an advantage this season is true, this is the type of game where we should see some real return. Paul George needs to take half man, half old country buffet to the hole at every opportunity.

Dirk is just an unfair cover. Hopefully he beats himself on offense because we don't really have anyone who can bother him very much. Honestly Danny might be the best cover because Danny is very strong for his position and also has length (and he himself feels post D is his strongest point on that side of the ball). I think Granger has the best mix for trying to check Dirk.

Otherwise, West and Tyler can win the trench battle, but he can easily shoot over them or in West's case drive by him. Roy has more than enough size and length, but Dirk could drive past him as well (though if Roy was very smart with using his length the way Paul George does with point guards, this could theoretically be effective in small doses).

Paul George is kind of like putting Danny on him, but Paul just doesn't have that strength yet that Danny does.

I agree with Granger on Dirk, but then you have DWest trying to guard Marion. Tough call.

I think i'd opt for that. Marion's obviously quicker and his handles aren't bad, so i'd have West sag off of him a little bit and hope Matrix doesn't hit his shots.

Dirk hasn't really been dirk lately his shooting has been off. He also has came out after the last game and said that he's not confident in his movement yet because of his knee problems. So I think we'll do ok with Dirk just hope that we're not the ones he gets his confidence back on.

Sparhawk
02-03-2012, 01:34 PM
Just hope Dirk doesn't decide to go off on us. We don't have anyone who can guard him. PG could, but Dirk would expose him with multiple pump fakes cause PG jumps way too early. PG would just end up in foul trouble.

No, you can't stop Dirk, so the key guy to stop tonight is Jason Terry.

By Jeff Caplan
DALLAS -- Rick Carlisle coached the Indiana Pacers to the Eastern Conference finals and through the much darker days during the aftermath of the brawl in Detroit.

He loves the way team president Larry Bird has re-built a team that has only Danny Granger and Jeff Foster left from Carlisle's years. The big addition in free agency for this season was former New Orleans Hornets forward David West, who initially appeared on his way to Boston before choosing the Pacers. With 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert emerging and Granger continuing to lead the team in scoring, the Pacers are off to a 15-6 start and they've done it despite playing 14 of 21 on the road, going 9-5.

"They're now a championship-contending team," Carlisle said. "Now they're in a healthy place financially with their cap. Larry Bird has done a phenomenal job. That team would be second in the West with their record. That's the other thing, the schedule's coming back to them because they're going to be home a lot. Look, they have a really, really good veteran, young team. They can beat anybody."

Records: Pacers (15-6); Mavs (14-9)

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: American Airlines Center

TV: FSSW

Radio: ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM; 1270 AM (Spanish)

What to watch: The Mavs expect to have Shawn Marion, Brendan Haywood and Lamar Odom back in the lineup tonight. Marion hyperextended his right knee in Wednesday's game, but he played through the pain and said he'll play tonight. Without Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki slumping, Dallas needs its top players in the game and that includes Haywood's interior defense and rebounding, and Odom as well. It's high time that the 6-10 Odom, one of the more versatile fowards in the game, comes through, not only for his production, to help ease Nowitzki's minutes. Nowitzki played 38 minutes in two of the last three games since his return and that's likely too many.

Key matchup: Roy Hibbert vs. Brendan Haywood
Haywood said Thursday that he expects to play and the Mavs need his 7-foot, 263-pound frame to man the middle against the 7-2, 260-pound Hibbert. The fourth-year pro out of Georgetown has quietly become one of the top centers in the league, averaging 14.0 points on 52.5 percent shooting and 9.8 rebounds. Haywood won't match his scoring, but he has to be a force in pushing Hibbert away from the basket as well as making his presence felt on the boards. Hibbert is a big reason why no team grabs more rebounds per game than the Pacers, who rank seventh in rebounding differential. Dallas ranks 18th.

Injuries: Pacers - G George Hill (left ankle) is out; F Jeff Foster (lower back) is out. Mavs - G Jason Kidd (strained right calf ) is out; F Shawn Marion (hyperextended right knee) is probable; C Brendan Haywood (lower back) is probable; F Lamar Odom (stomach) is probable.

Up next: Mavs at Cleveland Cavaliers, 6:30 p.m., Saturday

Douchebag.

:hmm::hmm::hmm:

I cannot really tell you how much I disagree with this. Then again, everyone is entitled to his opinions.

K, about the game now. It's a hard match up. Dallas is good in its home court. They are a good defensive team as well (they allow less points than we do). They only allow 35.6 points in the paint per game and are second in that category (the team that's first in this category is the Raptors and we know that they gave us fits both times). Roy needs to be in top shape and our perimeter offense needs to hit its shots. West hitting his pick n' pop jumpers would help, of course.

I hope we get this. It will be amazing if we do. It will not be a catastrophe if we don't get this, though. Let's hope we give our best :)

Make it International basketball, in general. Most people in Europe consider him a hero due to him playing with his national squad from 1999 while only missing two tournaments. And that while knowing that his squad would not achieve anything anyway.

our bench sucks right now

Actually I think Lou has been pretty damned impressive over the past 3 games.

Dahntay Jones has been a solid contributer for a month now.

A.J. Price has just played one game recently so there is no way I'm going to judge him by the Min. game.

Lance was almost brilliant in the N.J. game but came out and flubbed the Min. game, let's see how he does tonight.

Tyler has been in a slump since he got hit in the head. It could be some of what has occured or it could just be the league has adjusted to him again and he has yet to counter. Again let's give it time.

George Hill is out.

So while our bench is not equaling our starters at the moment I just don't agree that it sucks right now either.

It's kinda weird. I don't expect us to lose both though, I would be disappointed. If we lose tonight I would expect us to capitalize against the Magic tomorrow. If we win tonight I could see us slacking off and lose badly to the Magic tomorrow.

I really wish that we just adopt those for next season with a couple little kinks and what not to modernize it a little more. They reflect the team so much better than any other jersey I've ever seen... I am in love with them. The royal blue is just great and they look old school as hell.

Tyler has been in a slump since he got hit in the head. It could be some of what has occured or it could just be the league has adjusted to him again and he has yet to counter. Again let's give it time..

The only thing that's wrong with Tyler's head is thinking if he should pass when he would normally just take the shot in rhythm. He's had a good game after getting poked in the eye but he hasn't had any at all after Frank had his fix the offense practice where he tried to get more passes out of Hansbrough resulting in him going from 11.67 PPG before that practice to 6.33 PPG after it.

That isn't his game and they knew that when we drafted him. You act like his shot totals are abnormally high but his per 36 total isn't that high. Is going from 11.67 PPG to 6.33 worth the added .45 more assists per game, and do you honestly think its good for the team for him to play 11:31 and take one shot? The rest of the bench's bad +/- and 3-of-10 shooting would suggest its not.

Lou, useless on offense
Tyler, has been useless on offense and has been useless on defense
Dahntay, solid
Lance, can't make a shot
Price, can't make a shot

That's going to get beat (although, at least some starters are played with them)...Tyler's obviously had it in him to play well, and that would completely change this group on it's own. And I think Price's shot will return, at some point...They were actually getting some pretty good shots though, as a group. It wasn't so much poor offense as it was poor shooting.

I've wanted him to get comfortable with that move for a while. It had been obvious that he's not good at driving (ball handling), so he needed to go in the post. Vogel had it implemented in the offense, and Granger worked at being good at it, and it seems to be a pretty good staple.
