    Default The "Official" Pacers vs Rockets post game thread

    Well it is going to be interesting to read some of the comments on this board.

    Here is how I saw what happened. Pacers ran out of gas. The Rockets stepped up their defense and the shots the Pacers were able to get and make in the first almost 3 quarters, they weren't able to hit or get those same shots. AJ and Jax went cold, and we missed Fred and Danny

    I was so mad at Jeff for missing two three throws and throwing the ball away late in the third, but I couldn't stay mad at him for very long, great
    hustle by Jeff. That is why I love the guy.

    You cannot fault the Pacer effort tonight, and if you do, either you didn't see the game or you're drunk

    Well I'll leave the criticism of Rick and Jax to others.

    Isn't there a thread by Hicks somewhere asking for everyone to watch their language?

    Way to be a good example, admin.
    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!

    Well, again game lost because Saras didn't play enough . This team needs either A.Johnson to be injuried ( do not wish him that) or Carlisle to be fired.

    I'll leave the criticism to Jack, AJ, and Rick.

    First and foremost, AJ and Jack didn't just miss the game winners..They missed the 15 shots leading up to that...AJ and Jack threw up 6 straight 20 footers and missed all of them with about 3-4 mins left in the game.

    Let me take you into the world of numbers.

    Stephen was shooting 7-14 from the field prior to the 4th. By the end of the game, He's 8-20. That's flat out disgusting. Another disgusting fact is that AJ took a turnaround jumper when we could obviously get someone a better shot. The final two plays of the game were the worst I have ever seen. Why not let Runi and Peja get the last shot for a change? I mean, they have just as good a chance as making it as Stephen does.

    Another thing that worries me about this team is our ability to make clutch shots. We don't have a single player on our team who has the ability to take over the final 2 minutes of the game when it's close. I really think Rick needs to just bench Stephen for the 4th quarter from now on.

    I'm more frustrated because they lost to the Knicks last night.

    But that was one of the best efforts I've seen from the team in a long time. No Freddie, no JO, no Granger, no Croshere and Tinsley in his first game back. They just couldn't buy one at the end.

    Yes, the play calling at the end sucked, and AJ made some gaffes.

    But let's keep this up. That was a hell of a game by the team as the whole.

    And when Freddie is back I don't want to see him then either.

    Yao is becoming a beast. He just dominated the paint and there was nothing our bigs could do to stop him.

    The Rockets played great defense in the fourth. If it weren't for Foster we would not have even had a chance at the end of the game.

    BBall I'm sorry to tell you but as long as rick Carlisle is the coach of this team you will have to say that after every game.

    Luckily Philly, Washington and Milwaukee lost tonight so really no change in standings.

    Effort was great tonight, Peja had a great game (29pts, 9reb, 5 ast). IF this was not back to back game with Granger out it could have been a different outcome.

    Indiana's last play in close games is all too predictable to even try to argue.

    I would have actually preferred Gill over Stephen tonight. Anybody over Stephen tonight..Just to make it unpredictable. Gill may suck, But who the hell would expect him to get the final shot? Teams just quadruple team Stephen Jackson and we inbound the ball to him anyways. It's a joke watching him hoist up a 3 pointer when he's being heavily contested by two players.

    I am not sure what play you guys are talking about, but when we were down 1 and Jax missed that three short, that shot wasnt really contested.

    A man was coming over, but there werent two guys on him.........
    Would it have made a difference if he was being double teamed? I still would expect the same result. A launched 3 pointer from 27 feet out.

    I'd like to see some cutting and screening and passing....

    Apparently if AJ or Freddie are in the game at the end (or end of any quarter for that matter) then I won't see any of that.

    This is so obvious. I don't understand why a professional coach making millions can't also see it.

    Rick ran three iso plays in a row for Jax. This is incomprehensible to me.

    According to play by play Jax was 1-5, the mighty Peja 2-6.

    I just checked the box score after coming home.

    HOW THE FRAK CAN WE SCORE ONLY 11 PTS IN THE 4TH QTR??????

    I went through the ESPN Play-By-Play in the 4th QTR:

    Peja - 6 pts
    2 for 5 FG / 0 for 1 3pt / 2 for 2 FT

    Tinsley - 0 pts
    0 for 1 FG

    SJax - 4 pts
    1 for 3 FG / 0 for 2 3pt / 2 for 2 FT

    Pollard - 1 pt
    0 for 2 FG / 1-2 FT

    AJ - 0 pts
    0 for 3 FG / 0 for 3 3pt

    Sarunas - 0 pts
    0 for 1 3pt

    This time...the problem wasn't with SJax towards the end of the game....with 2:47 minutes left in the game....with the game tied......AJ made 5 of the last 8 FG Attempts ( all of which missed )......with Peja making the last 2 points of the game and SJax making 2 FG Attempts ( that missed as well ).
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    "The only available reserves were center David Harrison and three point guards -- Jamaal Tinsley, Sarunas Jasikevicius and Eddie Gill."

    Can we win with such a "deep" team..?

    But I also agree that Rick is very predictable...

    The clutch discussion has been visited before, but this is just another example of how we have nobody who's got what it takes to be a consistent go-to guy down the stretch. Jack and AJ aren't up to the task, but neither are Peja and the inured JO IMO. Of course, when you're up like that the game is really lost by letting the lead evaporate. I do think fatigue and essentially a skeleton crew was a factor, but it's still allowing another W to get away no matter how you slice it.
