    Runi looked pretty nice there in his second stint.

    Sarunas is not looking impressive in his first start, but he didn't look impressive in his first game either. I bet if he got 5+ starts in a row he'd show dramatic improvement.

    Man, nice line for Jermaine. 5 of 10, 17 points and 8 boards at the half.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I think he looks pretty good from what I've seen so far. I won't mention the first 8 mins of the game that I missed....

    He's been fine, but not special is I guess what I'm saying.

    Soup, I can only guess Jeff is getting David's minutes tonight. Frankly I like having Jeff out there. Our rebounding (and his effort) are noticably different than what we've had.

    And now I'd like to mention the post the other day where I mentioned my observation that if AJ or Freddie has the ball at the end of a period that nobody else is getting it...

    Nice to hear. I suppose I'll say the offense looked like it was running fine, if nothing else. I'm hoping Saruanas has at least one big assist game to silence the critics, but then it doesn't matter as long as we're winning.

    I hope that's not a permanent thing, David's rebounding had picked up nicely recenty.

    I do like having Foster out there though, don't get me wrong.

    He's not been flashy, but he's been effective. I also like how he looks to setup everyone and share the ball with the various egos of the team. Much like a QB making sure all his receivers get a ball or two their way. That should encourage more sharing of the ball.

    Saras is starting? I smell 15 assists.
    I think we'll get AT LEAST that. Heck, we had 4 in the first quarter! Three more quarters like that and we'll get 16!

    Or did you mean 15 by Saras? That's a lot for one game, especially considering that's more than he's had so far THIS YEAR.

    AJ had more assists than Sarunas, thus proving his superior passing ability and a higher ability to run a team.

    AJ played okay but I still cannot stand watching him run the team. It's just slooooow and that worked tonight, but I'd rather not count on it happening again....
