I'm looking forward to watching Kirilenko. I haven't seen nearly as much of him as I've wanted to (on the court, pervs :p ). From what I hear about him, he sounds like he has near-Artest level defense, yet he's also a top 4 shot-blocker. :o

And he has 3 point range, I think...

Looking at his stats now, damn he averages 2.00 steals AND 2.69 blocks! :o

Shoots 38% from 3 this year, btw.

Damn. If ever we had to trade Ron, i'd hope we could sway Utah to coughing him up.

kerosene
02-22-2004, 01:06 PM
Damn. If ever we had to trade Ron, i'd hope we could sway Utah to coughing him up.

Jerry Sloan and Ron Artest? Man oh man oh man, that could be fun.

BostonConnection

Kirilenko is impressive defensively, very long arms with good timing on shot block attempts, plus quick hands. Not a bad forward to build around for the rebuilding Jazz.

I just have a bad feeling about this game. I hope I'm wrong but we look awful to say the least so far. I know it's early but our lack of rebounding so far is kinda :unimpressed:

Have faith! Pacers will win!!

zxc

Pacers not getting to any rebounds here.

You would think JO would at least try to post up Michael Ruffin(who?) a few times here =\

able
02-22-2004, 03:46 PM
bad rebounding P's, I guess we will see some more from Pollie today.

JO should get into that action too, Al made one shot then took a bad one, they shoudl start passing the ball instead of hastily shoot.

still early, I still more then like our chances :)


:stupid:

Suaveness
02-22-2004, 03:46 PM
That is one thing we really need to do more of

Hicks

Why did reg get a T?

Shaq would have simple gotten to the line on that call. Alas, the OTHER O'Neal is here.

set rotations is one thing, but this is getting ridiculous

because whoever it was did not do a "great" job

zxc
02-22-2004, 03:58 PM
Reggie I guess. But his last basket or two were lucky bounces off the rim leaving him wide open.

zxc
02-22-2004, 04:00 PM
JO just got blocked by Gordan Giricek.. :(

Hicks

seems the refs have little or no love for JO, they can bang him up as they want without a foul called

Double tech on JO and Ostertag.. :unimpressed:

This is not pretty. 13 first quarter points, ugh.

Hicks
02-22-2004, 04:02 PM
When JB attacks with his back to the basket, he's really good at drawing fouls.

able
02-22-2004, 04:03 PM
I still don't see why Tins had to go out, he had a great game on Arroyo.

AJ is not doing half the job Tins did.

Now Arro starts burning us, while he had nothing with Tins on him

:stupid:

Hicks
02-22-2004, 04:04 PM
Tough shot by AJ goes down. :)

19-17 Jazz after 1.

Southside_Pacer
02-22-2004, 04:04 PM
One word describes the first quarter:

Ugly

zxc
02-22-2004, 04:04 PM
Nice shot by AJ at end of quarter.

Suaveness
02-22-2004, 04:05 PM
This bad treatment against JO is really pissing me off...why doesn't he get any calls???

Also, he needs to start posting a LOT more. He is taking tooo many jumpers.

zxc
02-22-2004, 04:06 PM
Also, he needs to start posting a LOT more. He is taking tooo many jumpers.

Agree there. I don't know whats going on. He is floating around the 3 point line more than setting up in the post looking for the ball. Like the plan is for him to be taking 15 footers instead of posting up =\

Hicks
02-22-2004, 04:08 PM
Nice job Scot and JB to keep that alive!

Natston
02-22-2004, 04:09 PM
nice pass bender... :D

JB looking good again. Posting up those smaller guys.

Never a homecourt advantage with the refs for us =\

I don't like this lineup by the way. Bender only one who is supposed to score?

3rd foul on Freddie.... :cry:

able
02-22-2004, 04:16 PM
oh dear, Slick should watch his heart with these refs, he's even shouting at them from the sideline :)



Sorry but i feel stronger per game that KA should get at the least some minutes from AJ and Tins' minutes should be longer, this rigid rotating is not a good idea, Tins was stopping Arro and leading good offense, it all stopped when AJ came in.

:stupid:

zxc
02-22-2004, 04:17 PM
JO back in.

I don't know why you are ripping on AJ so much. Tinsley was not playing as fantastic as you seem to think he was and AJ has been fine so far this game. We were behind when Tinsley was in the game too.

Natston
02-22-2004, 04:18 PM
Tins is back in... :dance:

zxc

Little too much dribbling for Tinsley there..

Be nice to build a little lead before half here.

Sorry worrying about the refs Tins. :)

zxc

AJ checking in after Tinsley turns it over 2 consecutive possesions then commits a dumb foul. Near a T too.

little talk with JO about where we are playing might be nice, he needs to do some more being the bosS!

that's Rick out of the game

maybe those refs are paid by Utah or perhaps they are morons, uhh mormones?

:stupid:

Natston
02-22-2004, 04:31 PM
Wow the refs made a call finally... :unimpressed:

Hicks

This better result in positive energy from us. Hopefully that doesn't mean we just start hacking.

able
02-22-2004, 04:32 PM
they are beating AJ up on defense.

Bring KA in!

:stupid:

Hicks
02-22-2004, 04:33 PM
I'm curious to see if Brown handles things any differently.

I was at the NJ game where Rick was ejected, and I thought I noticed Brown was more willing to sub on the fly than Rick. Maybe we'll see Kenny.

zxc
02-22-2004, 04:33 PM
Beating up AJ on defense..? What are you talking about? They haven't done anything since he checked in besides shoot some technical fts..

Natston

Wow Rick gets booted, then the refs make two calls back to back against the Jazz... :unimpressed:

debohstheman

man was playing well..creating opportunities and being disruptive on D.

lets see some more of him!!!

Hicks
02-22-2004, 04:35 PM
Gotta say, as much as I love Rick, we are so blessed to have Mike Brown here. I really don't feel worried AT ALL with him in control.

I really hope he sticks around until Carlisle's gone so he can be our next Head Coach.

02-22-2004, 04:37 PM
Beating up AJ on defense..? What are you talking about? They haven't done anything since he checked in besides shoot some technical fts..

I was almost repeating the words of Slick despite the offensive foul that was made on the play.

they are my eyes, Slick just ranting again on AJ for allowing bell to go by him without any effort

Natston
02-22-2004, 04:37 PM
We can only hope to contain Ostertag... :o

Well, down 1 at half, Al giving us less than nothing again, JO with 4 turnovers, etc etc. Croshere been our best played in the first half, that's not a good thing. Hope it is just because it is an early day game they come out after half with some more energy and look a little sharper.

He's in now.

Remember folks that they're purposefully not playing him big minutes right now to baby his knee. I think 24minutes is the max per game they'll play him.

Come on, you can't blame the refs for this. Pacers have shot more free throws than the Jazz. They're just offensively and defensively incompetent today. This is the fourth game on the road for the Jazz. They lost to Miami and Orlando. Pacers should be leading by double digits. So don't balme the refs.

I am getting a better feeling despite the struggling of the game, we know everybody brings his A game to us, and we are dealing with that and lousy reffing at the same time.

Ugly game, but a win is a win.

Winning ugly always is better than losing pretty.

Refs had a hand in there...that 3rd quarter was difficult to watch... although it gave our bench vauable playing time... Croshere, Bender were aggressive and effective. AJ had some nice plays at the end of his 4th quarter stint...I like him better when he pushes the ball up court.

Jamal has learned to get back into the game after losing focus momentarily...he used to let those moments effect the rest of his game... He doesn't shoot a great percentage, but he continues to knock down big shots.

Al had a better game offensively...his knee didn't look to bad on that late dunk...jesus.

Jermaine got to the line...needs to work on his passing... but was huge on the boards and with his shot blocking... its nice to know when JO isn't at his best he still throws up 20/10 and 7 blocks!

lets make it 3 in a row.
