Pollard is out with a bad back again.
Pollard is out with a bad back again.
Didn't read through your whole post VA but noticed this:
Jeff was his typical self, including the quota for required missed lay ups in a NBA game.
I believe he was 2-4 from the field. How many layups did you think you see this guy miss?
He definitely missed one, and since he rarely shoots jumpers, we can probably surmise from his 2-4 from field that he missed two point blank shots. He kinda makes up for it with hustle boards and second chances, but DAMN it would be nice to see him take advantage of all that hard work banging down low and give us some easy buckets!
Even though we lost tonight, I was encouraged that they finally came to play and took it seriously enough to get back in it late. Easily a game we could've won, so I will take that over a Phoenix-style beatdown on the road.
Of course, now they have to win tomorrow against the Bulls to keep the W-L pattern going...
RESIDENT COUNTING THREAD PHILOSOPHIZER
Not a lot of talk about the game tonight. Is it just a Friday, or is interest starting to wane?
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!
O'Brien has been fired! Yay! What took so long?

I doubt it's been this bad for at least 18 years. That's what happens when your best free throw shooter retires. If Austin and Cabbage don't get to the line we're pretty much screwed. Although if/when Jermaine is ready to come back he's a lot better than he used to be. (He's sure to suck now that I gave him a compliment.)
You'd think playing with the flu would make him play worse.Jack looked off, but I am not even worried about that. Jack is so damned streaky, and when we have to rely on him as the first option, you know some days he on, and some days he not………
When is he due back? Are you kidding? Do you ever believe it when they say a Pacer will be back from an injury? I know I don't. I haven't heard anything about Scot other than he's out because of his back. Considering I haven't heard anything about when he's expected to be back I would think that's not good. (And since I said that I'm sure he'll play tonight.)Lastly, I end with a question. I have not heard much about Pollard. Is he still on the team? What’s up with him, I was not aware of any injury….when is he due back?
Good catch VA! At home, David shoots 54% on his freethrows, but on the road, it drops to 37%.
Of course, he hasn't even shot 40 freethrows yet this season.
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?
The other shot Jeff missed was blocked,
Besides a few missed layups from Jeff, I thought he played well. He is one of the reasons we almost came back, with all of the offensive boards he got.
Also, he probably only missed 1 free throw last night. If any.

I like Rick, i'm not in love with his coaching but i'm happy for what he has done in the last few years but his time is up we need a different coach a different style.
