    Tinsley is amazing that is all. And how nice was it too see Stephen Jackson sit out most of the 4th and not chuck up 25 shots in 6 minutes. Very good home win.

    We won this because Rick was smart enough to play Tins at the end.

    And another thing I have been saying over and over again AJ is a good backup sg. Move him to the bakcup sg and let Sarunas be the backup pg.

    What was with putting Gill in at the end for the free throws and not Sarunas?

    That was a big difference from past 4th qtrs this week, Tinsley played the point and we won. See how easy it is Rick.

    About Sarunas not going in at the end maybe he said he didnt want to play? Who knows

    We need to have AJ backing up Jax at SG and Runi backing Tins up at PG. AJ can create his own shot and is a pretty good shooter.

    I'm really surprised that Coach Carlisle held Sarunas out of the game after all the effort Sarunas has given this year. It wasn't even 2 weeks ago when the rookie got 11 assists and 14 pts on 5 of 8 shooting against Washington (tie series 2-2). He also played 49 + minutes that game. By holding Sarunas out of the game tonight snapped his games played mark at 60.

    Is this the way the Indiana Pacers treats their players? If it is maybe this team has lost more than Reggie Miller over the last year!

    Well, we're going to hear about it tomorrow from our European friends.

    If I had to guess, I'd say Rick didn't want to play Saras in garbage minutes. I doubt Saras is thanking him, though.

    Sarunas is good... but every player ahead of him in the rotation is BETTER. What is it about this that is so hard to understand?

    Like Rabid said Where is the guy supposed to play? Tins is better, AJ, Fred,Jack. There just isnt enough minutes for 3 PG's right now.

    Dude...welcome to the NBA. There isnt room in a rotation for 3 PGs.

    It was AJ or SArunas for backup, and AJ won. And right now, I'm not even sure Rick made the wrong choice. AJ has arguably had a better year, his last-second screwups nonwithstanding.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Well, not Gill...

    Of course, Gill only played about 45 seconds.

    I think that was not to offend Sarunas by making him look like a garbage player.

    Tins did do well. However, Granger and Harrison were the difference makers in this game IMO.

    With out Hulk's scoring in the 4th this would have been a HARD game to win.

    The idea is to get him in the game, even if it was just to keep his streak alive. The rookie has played his heart out this year and has stayed healthy enough to play every game which is more than several Pacers. Bringing Gill in the game in Sarunas place was a slap in the face to Sarunas, and whether he's been cold or not makes no difference, he's been there when the Pacers needed him, and that should be good for something!

    Just imagine them as next year's starters, with KG in between them.

    Streak? What streak?

    You honestly think Carlisle knew or cared about a guy playing in every game for the season? I doubt the thought ever crossed his mind.

    You think Sarunas would have jumper for joy over those last 40 seconds?

    WInning matters in the NBA, not maintaining personal streaks.

    Don't you find it odd then that Sarunas is atop the +/- chart?

    They are going to the T'Wolves? Cause thats the only way they get to play with KG.

    I'm willing to bet his streak means more to you than to him.

    Everybody else gets it. Bringing Gill was a sign of respect.

    Those +/- stat things are a little misleading, dont you think?
