Eight Points, Nine Seconds <S>Preview</S> Review:</TH></TR><TR><TD>
Jeremy Comstock: Approaching the Trade Deadline<br><br>With the trade deadline fast approaching, Iíd like to run a quick series of articles to<br>look more closely at some of the names being bandied about and how theyíd fit in<br>with the current Pacersí roster. Letís start off by identifying some of my underlying<br>assumptions and the holes I see on the current roster.



Assumptions

The Pacers (and probably not any other team in the East) are<br>not going to defeat Miami or Chicago in a playoff series.

Letís face it, the gap between the Bulls, Heat, and the rest of the East (or the NBA<br>outside of Oklahoma) is insurmountable barring some unforeseen cataclysmic<br>happenstance. Any realistic season goals for the Pacers are going to stop at winning<br>a first round playoff series, continuing to evaluate the talent on hand, watching that<br>talent develop, and somehow divining a way to move past also-ran status.


The Pacers will not make a major move and<br>cannot afford to trade talent for talent.

Keeping the above in mind, the team needs to figure out how to improve without<br>sending out much more than picks and cap space. Since the starters are playing<br>at an elite level, and George Hill has been pretty great as well, it seems unlikely<br>that the Pacers will be able to improve upon any of the top 6 spots.


Depth is good, especially if Frank Vogel is your coach.

So far this season, Vogel seems intent upon using a 10 man rotation with clearly<br>defined positional roles. Itís hard to know if this is his true preference or a tactic for<br>dealing with a condensed season. Since itís been his M.O. so far, it would seem that<br>a way forward would be to improve the 7-10 spots on the roster.



Roster Holes
Iím not going to do a complete analysis here. Iíll just point out, rather quickly, the<br>types of players I think we should be looking for. This will necessitate a bit of<br>discussion of current players, but...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s (http://www.eightpointsnineseconds.com/2012/03/the-indiana-pacers-approach-the-trade-deadline-part-1/)</TD></TR></TABLE>

I'm glad Quinn called DC out on not seeing the mismatch with PG/chalmers, because I was thinking the same thing. This crap happens all the time.

It's weird because they used to be generally condescending and crude, but since they landed Bron and Bosh, they've become a lot more chill. One of the rare examples of an announcing staff becoming cooler/nicer after the team gets better. cough **** the Bulls cough

Lou is one of those players that could stand a chance to defend LeBron. He is built similarly to Mbah a Moute who can somewhat do it.

hey so far so good, pacers kill me...we could very well end up still getting blown out, but it's nice to see some effort on rebounding so far.

I agree. His lateral quickness is impressive. Lebron thought that he was going to give him a little hesitation at the top of the key and blow right past him. He had to fade on Lou which caused him to brick the shot off the left side of the rim.

I think part of the frustration is a result of losing in two blowouts to the Heat. I at least feel like we have to be damn near perfect to beat this team. So if you expect to win, you expect perfection. When you don't get perfection, you get negative. Not excusing any negativity, but this is just a tough team to go up against mentally.

Can't complain about a nine point lead at the end of the first quarter, especially considering some of our starts. But it just feels scary and ominous playing the Heat. Dos pesos.

I really don't care whether or not the Heat ever end up winning a championship, it'll always carry an asterisk in my book.

Ok, first half has been awesome. It's good to see us coming up strong. I just want them to keep up the intensity.
