This is a very ugly game - and yet they are only down 8. We need Harrison in the paint. A Pacers center with back spasms....sounds familiar :(

was this not 52-48? I mean everytime we get it close just some bonehead move. Games over we lost...how the hell? CURRY SUCKS!~ I'm sick of him pulling his little defense moves when we are in the penalty! I'm also sick of him jus charging into the lane and picking up fouls. W/E...In games like this we have to win...and we lose..just amazing

Haislip with the dunk in garbage time. We can't get a board and the bulls with the putback. I'm going to say reggie forces a 3...Missess and with 1 minute carlisle sends the losers I mean third stringers out there.

That first foul on Curry was just garbage. He didn't even touch the guy. It all went south very quick after that.
