Where's everyone at??? I can't watch the game since I am at work. I have barely been able to find the time to check out the score. But I am liking what I am seeing so far.

For those actually watching the game....how are we looking?? Have we shaken off the fatigue that we were showing the Charlotte game??? Wish I could be watching.

Yeah, me too Misty, this would've been a good game to be able to watch. I keep telling myself I'm going to get NBA League Pass one of these days, but I never end up doing it...

UHG! I flipped to it when my mom was watching her show and it was pacers by 11...now we are down 9! UHG!

Down 9 at the half. Still well within striking distance. They just need to keep it close and give themselves a chance to steal it at the end. Tinsley with 13 already on 5-6 shooting. He needs to make those FTs though!!! Only 2-4 so far tonight. We need 1 more good half.

BTW, is it wrong that I don't feel at all guilty about checking the game online while I am at work???

Go Pacers

Thank God for League Pass :)

Pacers started strong early, but have fallen apart right now - Seattle is shooting like 70% from 3pt range though. I was worried about Tins at one point - he went to the sidelines and put a heat pack on his knee. Also, Harrison has 3 fouls already (one is a T from getting physical with Fortson). Makes me sure wish we had Pollard to back him up :(

It just means you're good at "multi-tasking". ;)

Speaking of Pollard....any news about the extent of his injury??? Have the announcers given any indication of how many games he might miss??? We could really use his hustle and energy.

Also how do the new guys seem to be settling in??? We don't need them to be superstars....just produce a little and spell our go to guys!

The announcers really haven't mentioned it - but they have mentioned that Harrison is most likely 300lbs+ about 3 times now....(Sonics announcers...Dave Calabro's brother being one).

Thanks for the update.

Looks like we are basically using a 6 man rotation again. I noticed that Johnson has only played 8 min. and Fowlkes hasn't gotten in. These guys are going to need to really gut it out tonight.

got it to 3...Lewis kills us with a huge 3 and a bucket...down 8.... :-/
CMON GUYS!
Austins trying to do to much!

The Seattle announcers also keep making a point of it to show the bench point comparisons....like we even have a bench right now.

Seattle is shooting hot - we could have gotten the lead back down to 4 but didn't :(

BOOM BABY! Cro with the 3! tinsley looks gassed...I think he just said something like "I can't man" or something..maybe he's hurting ?
got it to within 5! COVER THE DAMN 3 POINT SHOOTERS!

After Tinsley's preformances this past week, I would really like to see him named EC Player of the Week. I know that LeBron is probably the popular choice after his career high and reaching the 2000 pt mark, but I don't think that anyone out there has meant more to their team over the past week. And Tinsley stats over the last three games are more than impressive: 21 PTS, 8 ASTS, 6 REB, and 3 STLS. Add to that his 19 PTS and 4 ASTS already tonight.

He deserves all the recognition he gets right now.

Keep it close Pacers.

Pacers down 9 at the end of the third. Basically, we aren't hitting FTs, and their 3's are dropping at a much higher percentage than ours.

Why is Gill shooting so much? :?

Seattle up 11 with 11:07 left in the 4th

Deadshot

Gill is getting some open looks - they just aren't all going in. One play that has worked really well tonight is the high pick and roll where they toss it back to Harrison. He has at least 3-4 wide-open dunks from this play.

3:12 left in the game - while Tinsley hit a 3 to cut the lead to 4, Harrison and Fortson got called for a double foul and David fouled out (although the 3 still counts). This one is in our reach....

The Sonics shot the ball very well - we played a good game considering the circumstances. I hope they don't let this game bring them down.
