I just saw it posted else where and assumed it was a legit thing once I clicked on it. Register and see. If it costs anything, forget it, but maybe all they want is email, etc. You can probably fake all of that unless it's discussing passwords or something.

27-20 =\

Artest has really been terrible on offense past 3 games or so. Needs to start giving us something.

Why do Shareef and JO NEVER get good whistles against each other?

down 7 and Al out with two stupid fouls.

Pollie in and straight away steal and points.

5 down Atl ball.

JO first foul, disputed but given anyway :)

That is 9 fouls on us this quarter. 12 FTs to 2 so far.. :unimpressed:

Croshere in for first time in awhile.

Hicks
01-19-2004, 03:36 PM
Listening to WIBC.

At least Terry has 2 fouls now.

And for the worriers out there, remember we play our best ball in the 2nd half and we played bad in the 1st half of the NJ game as well.

Artest for 3..........!

zxc
01-19-2004, 03:36 PM
Artest with his first 3 in like 6 games I think? 30-25 Atlanta.

Then he leaves his man and he hits a three right back.. =\

01-19-2004, 03:37 PM
P's are sleepwalking, head with the wrong game ?

wake 'm up, Terry has his 3d so that is a perfect solution as well ;)

still we are 8 down :(

Cro in the game!

33-27, end of the 1st qtr. Atlanta closes on a 33-20 run. :neutral:

Clearly, Ron is the only one that decided to show up on Indy's side so far.

quickly down 10 after the quarter starts. Need to start getting in this one.

able
01-19-2004, 03:42 PM
Sad display, and it will remain like that i feel the entire first half, then we will overcome the difference again, but we do need to start playing some defense, to many points!

Terry only has 2 PF's (alas)

Cro won't play much, he forgets to defend

Let's bring in Peanut Butter!!!

btw looks like Pollie is getting more and more minutes and playing some good D

Kstat
01-19-2004, 03:42 PM

Jamison Brewer checks in, searching for something at the PG spot I guess.

And he can't get the ball across half court.

Terry, Rahim, and Ratliff coming back in and we are still down 12. That isn't good.

JO finally starting to play like he can. He's doing some damage in the paint, finally.

Hicks
01-19-2004, 03:52 PM
JO scores, then we force 24shotclock violation.

zxc

Nice little run. Timeout Hawks lead down to 6.

Kstat

41-35, Pacers are on a 6-0 run, they seem to be taking control defensively.

Terry for three... ugh

Tinsley back in now. Terry must be happy about that.

able
01-19-2004, 04:04 PM
OK let's hope Tins got the message and they can bring us back in.

Remember we were 11 down against Nets and 7 to Spurs.

nothing new here.

Hawks have lost their last 6 second halfs, we win most of ours.

we are obviously not getting anything from the refs, instead they are, what else is new in this league, do we know the refs?

zxc
01-19-2004, 04:04 PM
Tins forces a turnover then brings it up and turns it over the same way.

zxc
01-19-2004, 04:05 PM
Had it down to 6.. back to 10 in no time.

Kstat

Okay that sucked. Had them stopped than Atlanta gets a lucky bounce and they get 2 to close it. Well, 5 point lead better than 10.

Kstat
01-19-2004, 04:10 PM
Hawks get a fluke rebound and score at the buzzer, 56-51 at the half. Pacers seem to be getting it together though.....

Hicks
01-19-2004, 04:10 PM
5 point game at half after that debacle? I'll take it.

Southside_Pacer
01-19-2004, 04:11 PM
Man that sucks how they get that lay in right before halftime. :mad:

However from listening to Slick say that it's just one of those days where we don't seem to be into it mentally, and we seem to not be getting much help from the refs out there, only being down 5 is a real blessing.

We played bad and we're still in the game.

able
01-19-2004, 04:11 PM
that was a stop we wanted, 5 down 30 sec to go P's ball

AL nails it down 3 Atl last shot (17 sec)

Terry better defended by Tins but the rebound went in the air GRRR

they are dying of luck right now, that can't last!

Time for out famous 3d quarter!

GO Pacers!!!!

Southside_Pacer
01-19-2004, 04:15 PM
More good news for us is that Atlanta has been getting out scored in the second half of their recent ballgames. Let's hope that trend continues today, and we seem to play better ball in the second half by far.

indygeezer
01-19-2004, 04:20 PM
O gotta go potty, be right back.

Unclebuck
01-19-2004, 04:20 PM
Kstat, why aren't you at the Palace \


Pacers were horrible to start the game, they looked they were running in mud, very slow no aggression.

Give Pollard a lot of credit for coming in and giving the team a lift, he was physical and played well. Brewer also got the Pacers going a little.

One thing that has hurt the Pacers is the refs are going it close today for the most part.

Hawks played very well, and Terry got it going which is always trouble.

Overall as the 1st half continued I thought the Pacers got better and better defensively and that is why they were able to get back into the game.

If the Pacers play the second half like they have been lately they'll will all right.

able
01-19-2004, 04:22 PM
I expect to see more of JO in the second half, and Reg, Tins has had his wake up call, so he is back with the lesson, I assume Cro won't see the floor anymore and JB might get another 5 monutes, unless Pollie gets them, Jeff has been "timid" perhaps that is why Pollie is getting more minutes, he's done a good job with 4 points and 4 rebounds in 10 minutes actually more of a Jeff performance from Pollie the from Jeff :devil:

I feel somewhat confident, but don't think it will be a large difference, assuming we will win by 6 or so and the scoring will go down in the second half.

:stupid:

zxc
01-19-2004, 04:29 PM
How did Reggie not get to the line there? Terry hits first shot of the third.. bah =\

Nice fast break there. Lead down to 4 timeout Atlanta.

17-16 spurs after 1 in Detroit. Opposite of our game on the defensive end I guess.

indygeezer
01-19-2004, 04:36 PM
Jeff Foster WAkES UP!!

Forced the 4th foul on Theo and then causes a TO and gets a dunk.

Good series of plays Jeff! (OK I'll take all the talk about getting a new C in trade...we'll use Jeff for now, thank you very much).

Nice job getting it back though.

zxc

Offense not looking too sharp starting this fourth. All we got is that Al three pointer I think? Lead down to 2 again if he gets these fts.

Smart move by JO, 3 FT's :)

yeah whassup with JB ?

seems Cro today has played himself defintely out of the rotation, C is now Jeff and Pollie as it was thought of earlier, they are doing a darned good job of it atm.

Maybe Peanut Butter is the secret weapon against the Pistons :D

Let's lock this one up, I said 93 - 87 to the P's and I might well be on the money today!

:stupid:

Detroit up 2 on the Spurs at halftime.

Silly turnover by Al.

Great block by Pollie, then another officials blunder but this time in our favour :)

Damn, Pollie is becoming of value to us!

Now JB back to his better self and bring on the league!

of course AJ forgets to defend Terry after that.

38-36 Pistons at half, man you guys were right about that SA defense....they are TOUGH.

Okur has pulled a foster on TD so far, he's stuffed him twice already.

sloppy D and they can hit from their own backcourt with their eyes closed.

Detroit up 2 at the half (38 - 36)

AJ still in, hmmmmmm TINS!

Can't pull away. 2 point game again. Reggie missed wide open three they can tie it.

Al fouls Shareef and they go to line to tie it up. We might lose this one =\

6-0 run for atlanta if he makes these.

Timeout pacers.

What's up with AL's defense, he's not able to defend ANYONE today!

It would show good coaching to take him out for a minute, first he gets burned by Jackson, now Rahim is doing it! that is 12 points on Al alone!

zxc
01-19-2004, 05:24 PM
Tinsley misses the three.. Offensive foul on Rahim bails us out.

Haven't scored in forever..

JO with a DD....24 pts 10 rbs

Now with only 5 left, fouling them would be ideal in my eyes. They got no timeouts so they are screwed after our next fts.

Southside_Pacer
01-19-2004, 05:36 PM
I don't think we were thinking they'd go for the quick two.

At least Reggie knocked them both down at the other end. Atlanta is a poor three point shooting team......but I'm still worried.

We know a three has to come here.

Never easy in the NBA, but it's still a win. We're done with those pesky Hawks!

We had some ****** games against Atl, certainly IN Atl, but we did it: 4 - 0

Expected the toughness of the game after the previous one here and certainly after Spurs and Nets this weekend.

Tomorrow is a crux and most likely butt ugly game, but i'll take the ugly ones as long as we win, time for beauty in other games :)

JO passed AD on the Indy all-time Rb list (now #8) and Reg, mr Clutch! whenever we need him he is there :)
