    I say give Christmas a couple minutes tonight, seems like LaVoy is out...sure he sucks but he's never even been given a chance like Joe has. Going to be a tough game and guys will be tired but I think they can win if they play well and Wizards are already vacationing. Think the trade deadline will be much more nervous on a 6 game losing streak than if they pull this game out.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    I like Pacers tonight. They should've been good yesterday but Pacers played 4 vs 5 yesterday. PG didn't do ****

    Major problems with the Internet access in our home today. Having to stream on a tablet via 4G. Should be interesting...

    Man we need this win.

    To play PF with the 2nd unit maybe, or to reward Third for being the one who showed up last night.

    Did anyone stay in town or did the whole team already leave for the break?

    Who's guarding Porter?????? Oh ya the guy that *****es and complains about perimeter defense. Well " guarding " is a strong word to use here.

    The defensive scheme of having the weak side "guarded" by defenders hugging the post line and watching the ball go to the 3-pt shooter before moving SUCKS.

    Porter has scored more points in 5 minutes than PG scored all night last night.

    Well, at least we're not completely comatose now. Fighting back.

    But this perimeter defense is still inexcusably bad.

    Turner and Serephin very active on offense so far. Our D is still horrific. Giving up 116+ during the losing streak. Looks like more of the same tonight.

    Playing 2 bigs at the same time is killing the Pacers.

    It's raining 3's for Washington. It like we're playing a team full of Kyle Korvers.

    He's been picking up and giving the fux that PG has seemingly left in the locker room.

    The more I watch the more I think it is the scheme. Guys are deliberately positioning themselves at the post line and then turn to whoever has the ball - I assume to prevent drives at the expense of it being impossible to react to the ball being passed to the 3-pt line behind them.

    The guards and wings are giving up penetration. Then nobody is closing out anywhere near the 3point line.

    That's McMillan's policy, which is why he has to go.
