I have to be up very early in the a.m. so I am only going to hit the highlights or lowlights which is what they should be called.
First off let me state this, Eddy Curry is bigger than David Harrison. I've never been able to see them lineup next to each other so I thought David was a little bigger. Not after tonight, Curry is quite a bit wider & thicker while David is a little taller.
I still feel David is the better player but he didn't play all that great vs. Curry. On the other hand those who do not understand why some of us believe in Harrison need to look no further than Jerome James of the Knicks to know why we feel the way we do.
James has been in the NBA longer, is taller & is every bit as thick & wide as David. However that is where it ends, David is hands down the better player in every aspect of the game.
I don't want to pick on Saras & in fact I probably need to just leave it alone but I can't help it. The guy has got to quite trying the fancy no look pass for a dunk on the break when he has the open shot & then ends up blowing a 3 on 1 fast break. I about lost my mind when he did that. Other than that he was fine, nothing great but then again nobody on our team was great. But he has blown so many fast breaks this season it drives me insane.
Fred Jones needs to refund the Pacers his paycheck for that game. That is all there is to say about that. He did nothing right.
Pollard is about the only Pacer who played worth a crap & even he let Eddy Curry abuse him on the defensive end of the floor.
*****************WARNING WILD SPECULATION AHEAD***************
Has anyone else noticed lately how we are running more & more isolation plays. It doesn't matter who the player is, it could be Jax or Granger or whoever. But has anybody else noticed how our offensive rebounding has decreased & when you look at our spacing on the floor again we see one guy on one side of the rim with 4 other guys on the other side?
I say all of that to say this. He is preparing you for Jermaines return. In other words what you saw work so well for 7 games is not the same you will see when J.O. returns. It's not the way it is now which can only lead to about one conclusion. J.O. is not the problem with the half court ISO's, it's Rick.
I know one person who will be happy about this but I think the rest of us are sick to our stomach.
***********************END OF SPECULATION*****************
Like I said I gotta go so this is going to be it.
There was nothing good about this game, even Boomers dunks between the 3rd & 4th quarter were dedicated to a power pack member who just passed away. I'm pretty sure his name was David Allen Scott Jr. & for those who attended the games he was the one who flew higher than anybody & was far & away the best dunker (even better than Boomer) I don't know what happened to him btw.
Let's just move past this & beat Houston.
Last note, we still need a 10 day contract big man.
