I really liked what I saw tonight from everyone who played. Sarunas probably was the biggest dissappointment of this game, in my book because I expect so much from him.
Three players had to leave the court due to "injury" tonight. Baron's may not be that serious, time will tell. But I like how the Pacers are playing with that kind of defensive intensity.
Stephen Jackson = Mr. Step up. The man stepped up his game last year in the playoffs and has done it this year we when have asked it of him.
I think our team needs one thing to be a contender. A defensive beast at the Center spot. Basically Ben wallace.
If we had a Ben wallace type player at center...we are a challenger.
Hopefully Donnie and Larry see this.
Sjack is a fine second option, get him a lot of shots he will produce. Yes he is streaky, but we all know he will step it up in the playoffs. We've got key bench players and I think we can make it to the ECF this year. But unless we get someone really good for Ron, we can not beat the Pistons.
But I like what I saw tonight and not just because we won. The defensive intensity was there, like it hasn't been for a while. Granger looks better every night.
This trade needs to happen fast though.
