This team just cannot play defense. It can't just be the loss of Artest, can it?

I mean, they're just terrible. Nothing at all like last year's team.

IndyToad
Come on back home

Lord Helmet
02-22-2005, 07:36 PM
AJ can't get the ball....... :unimpress

Hicks
02-22-2005, 07:38 PM
I can't remember the last time I've seen the string of calls that just went against us go against our opponents.

Jermaniac
02-22-2005, 07:38 PM
Are these refs trying to make us lose?

SoupIsGood
02-22-2005, 07:40 PM
Damn I love watching Harrison play. The guy just bullies the big men on the other team around. Did you see that jumpball between Dave and Garrity? Harrison slammed him to the ground.

able
02-22-2005, 07:40 PM
seems the refs have their marching orders from above.

that and Jax is .....................

These refs are determined to not let us get a shot off.

indytoad
02-22-2005, 07:47 PM
Unfortunate calls or not, the Pacers are still playing terrible D and have no direction on O. You can't pin this one on the refs.

IndyToad
Now with chedder

Hicks
02-22-2005, 07:48 PM
It's all one players fault. + Refs.

****ing Jackson. Trade him for a cheeseburger.

My God.

What a loser.

Get rid of him.

Boo.

Bah.

:suicide:

:unhappy:

:unimpressed:

:dancers:

Translation = I'm so ****ing sick of Jackson being the whipping boy. It's a joke.

indytoad

Last possession: case in point. Allowing wide open shots and offensive rebounds will cost you every game you play.

IndyToad
See ya ladies

who is this guy nelson whos not guarding him corectly.

indytoad
02-22-2005, 07:51 PM
Pacers aren't really guarding anybody, Nelson just happens to be the one that's shooting.

IndyToad
Using words like juicy

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 07:53 PM
yep we both know this team can,t rebound or defend.

indytoad
02-22-2005, 07:54 PM
Can't really shoot either. All they can really do is Jermaine.

IndyToad
Indiana has no caribou

indytoad
02-22-2005, 07:56 PM
Foster with a great putback there. Been playing great lately.

edit: Heh, Jackson really is a turnover machine isn't he?

IndyToad
A famous outburst

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 08:07 PM
we are now playing like we did in the early 1st quater rebounding defending thats all we need to really do and play some offensive game.

indytoad
02-22-2005, 08:10 PM
Pretty encouraging guard play tonight, which is something you can't very often say. Nice to see the D pick up again there as well.

And all without JO as well. Gotta applaud that.

IndyToad
Enjoy the final sequence

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 08:11 PM
yeah man dose it look like the pacers are really playing defense and rebounding latley no but when they start doing that they are the best team in the nba in my opinion.

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 08:13 PM
the pacers better blow this lead we are up by a good 14 points alls we need to do now is keep playing d and rebounding good and score draw fouls and be aggressive on the boards thats what the pacers shouid do all game.

PacersFan
02-22-2005, 08:13 PM
wow, Foster's already got 10 rebounds

TMJ31
02-22-2005, 08:13 PM
Yea Jeff!

6 and 10 boards at half time, with a block and steal to boot.

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 08:15 PM
Foster is defintely our key player at the half beacuse he picked our defensive and rebounding abbillty at the end of the 2nd quater.

Suaveness
02-22-2005, 08:17 PM
So can someone give me a synopsis of the first half, and how we are playing?

SoupIsGood
02-22-2005, 08:18 PM
Harrison was denied credit for his block. :(

Go Jeff!

I am glad Harrison has gotten the nod at back-up C.

But we are screwed if Tinsley's injury is going to linger all season.

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 08:31 PM
well we are looking good 53-36 17 point lead about 23 minutes left.

Mr.Howard you have just been facialized

Lord Helmet
02-22-2005, 08:57 PM
Turkolo what a *****, just mad beacuse he is getting stomped. Always when we play well the other teams try to **** us over. We aren't falling for that crap......

Jermaniac
02-22-2005, 08:59 PM
Turk didnt want none of JJ, doesnt he know We Ride Together Baby

Lord Helmet
02-22-2005, 09:00 PM
Turkgolo still complaining with out being thrown out....... Man the Pacers wouldn't dare to complain like that after being hit with a T.

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 09:01 PM
man i wish we did this on the clippers.

Lord Helmet
02-22-2005, 09:02 PM
Turk didnt want none of JJ, doesnt he know We Ride Together Baby
Yeah, well good thing Cro just grabbed Turk before he could do anything, or else we would have unleashed our "We ride together" powers.....

Jermaniac
02-22-2005, 09:20 PM
I just read that Shaq hurt his knee, lets hope its nothing serious but if he decides he wants some time of and not play tommorow I will support him 100%

Jermaniac
02-22-2005, 09:28 PM
lol Hulk just fouled out, man he was getting abused down in the paint and the refs wouldnt call any of it. If we werent up 30 points I would be pissed about it.

ReggieMiller8325
02-22-2005, 09:36 PM
24 point game win is ok with me.

Jermaniac
02-22-2005, 09:37 PM
That guy Indytoad cant be a Pacers fan can he?

indytoad
02-22-2005, 09:37 PM
Got off the computer to do some homework during the second half, so lest anyone says I never say anything positive when the Pacers do well... That was a pretty encouraging game. Faltered for a little bit at first, but the defense and ball movement in the second half was fantastic. Amazing how much differently this team plays with Tinsley, even if he is gimped. Hopefully they can keep it up.

IndyToad
Your preferred financial partner

Lord Helmet
02-22-2005, 09:37 PM
Yeah, I caught some of that IU game :devil: Sweet, sweet night.

Ragnar

Rejoice foreign Pacer fans I managed to record the entire game without the computer crashing!!!!

I have it encoding right now and will upload this lopsided fun fest ASAP.

This has been a great basketball night. IU kicks the **** out of Purdue, and the Pacers do the same to Orlando.
