    The forum is "messing up" today, posts are being deleted and posts are appearing out of nowhere.

    I like the quote from Carlisle that I highlighted.

    Jackson, Granger Shine In FanJam Scrimmage


    By Conrad Brunner | Oct. 9, 2005
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Was it a moral victory or a sister kissed?
    The annual FanJam scrimmage was neither and both while serving its primary purpose: giving roughly 8,000 fans given free admission to Conseco Fieldhouse their first look at the team Sunday afternoon.



    Tinsley

    Jamaal Tinsley's three free throws with 3.2 seconds left – courtesy a poorly considered foul by rookie free agent Jimmie "Snap" Hunter – forced a 33-all tie. After Fred Jones missed an open, long, 3-pointer at the buzzer, the 20-minute scrimmage ended in a draw.

    "It was a great opportunity for the fans to see our team, and it was a tight, competitive game," said Coach Rick Carlisle. "This was an energetic a crowd as we've had at FanJam as far back as I can remember."



    Granger

    For many in attendance, it was the first chance ever to see the team's two key offseason additions – New Mexico forward Danny Granger and Lithuanian guard Sarunas Jasikevicius – play in person. Granger didn't disappoint, scoring 10 points to lead the White team, comprised of reserves. Jasikevicius started but did not score for the White.

    Ron Artest, playing his first public game of any kind in Conseco Fieldhouse in nearly 11 months, showed plenty of rust. He missed his first five shots and finished with five points on 2-of-8 shooting for the Blue.

    Carlisle put little stock in the individual performances, good or bad.

    "This game's not a great indicator of reality," he said.




    Jackson

    Stephen Jackson led the Blue with 12 points, while Tinsley had five assists. Following Granger for the White were Jones and Austin Croshere with six apiece.

    The starters withstood two strong rallies from the reserves. After taking an 18-8 lead behind seven quick points from Jonathan Bender in the first of the two 10-minute halves, the Blue watched Jones hit a pair of 3-pointers to key an eight-point comeback by the White.

    The Blue led 27-24 after Artest's first basket, but the White scored eight uncontested points, including a pair of drives by Desmon Farmer and a dunk by Granger, to take a 32-27 lead. Artest then hit a 3-pointer to cut the lead to two, setting up the close finish.

    Farmer, fouled intentionally by Tinsley, made the strategy look good when he missed the first of two free throws, leaving the White with a 3-point lead. Hunter then bit on a ball-fake and jumped into Tinsley beyond the 3-point line, committing the foul that allowed the starters to escape with the tie.

    I like the court except for the coloring of the floor out of bounds.

    The new court has too much white.

    Whatever happened to yellow? Are we trying to lose it or what?

    I went. I won 2 tickets to the Spurs Pacers preseason game and caught an autographed Damon Brown ball (not my first choice but it was still pretty cool).

    Damone Brown is a beast (in the NBDL), I really hope he makes the roster.

    I know RC said the game is not a good indicator, but I thought Granger looked impressive. Clearly more talented than JJ. I was most impressed by Granger's fundamentals. He is a very good passer with great court awareness. He shoots the three well and can get through traffic and finish hard. He also appears pretty physical on D with very long arms. He does in fact remind me of Scottie Pippen.

    As for Saras, I saw nothing positive. We should know whether he will have impact sometime midseason.

    Thanks for the report. Everyone else who went is not telling us anything

    Pacers#1Fan - thanks!

    So did anyone get autographs? Being in Florida, of course I wasn't able to go, but I enjoy collecting autographs and this type of event would sound interesting to me.

    Thanks for the scans. Sure he's not a big name player, but that's something nice to add to a Pacers collection.

    The FanJam was a great outing for me and my Nephew. He and I have been to one game together previously, and I'm taking him there on opening night (his birthday ). He's now got a foam #1 Pacers sign, a Pacers football style shirt, and several wrist bands. He and I had a terrific time, but just one thing ... I stood in line to get an autographed Slick Mark poster, and Mark was nowhere to be found ... I think he had arrived late or something

    Ok, now to the scrimmage and events after. The rookies looked good, Saras looked good, and Granger looked good, but as Rick stated, it wasn't reality. My goodness though, Ronnie is bigger than I've eve seen him, he was just plain huge. I could tell he was ready to go, and his energy was barely contained. He looks fantastic!

    JT looks stunning. He's cut weight and looks serious about getting down to business. I like the idea he's been around New York this summer, we all know the best ballers per capita come from out east.

    JB looked good but I couldn't help but hold my breath on his monster dunk. Please JB, if you read this, please stay healthy!

    Saras was booed when he sang his Lithuanian song and that didn't rest well with me, but that's probably because I have so much respect for foreign traditions. He did the best he could. He does have a sense of humor, and I could tell he was holdin back alot. I can't wait to see him for real next Thursday! YEAH BABY!

    Granger's every bit as good as you've been hearing out of the camps. He's got some surprises for folks that's for sure.

    JO is pure class! He's taking this team under his wing and it shows. I appreciate the way he's steppin up, and it has to be a great load off of the coaches and front office personnel's minds.

    Great day, and I just want to say thanks to the Pacers, we had a great time, and my nephew will never forget it!
