    Our game Monday was on national TV too. Unfortunately for everyone, it was TNT's "player's only" travesty.

    This would be a big win for Detroit.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    This week probably makes or breaks their regular season. They could spend the rest of the year hovering around 8th or fight for 5th. Easiest last month of any team in the league after they play these final 3 games against Indiana and Cleveland.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I think he's already trying harder to rebound though. Just not great at it... yet.

    I have to say I'm liking the defensive set a hell of a lot more.

    Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...

    I doubt he'll ever be "great" but he can at least be serviceable in the future.

    Someone tell me if my eyes were deceiving me but I think I just saw Al Jeff RUN back down to get early post position on offense

    That might be the first time I have seen that all year

    Yeah but our offense comes to a grinding halt when he's in there. He's obviously very good in the low post but everything else just stops when he gets the ball there.

    GR3 is getting more confident with each game. Really loving his growth this year.

    He actually had a step on Baynes and still didn't come close to getting it.
