Nice job AJ. 50-46 at the half.
Great move by AJ at the end of the half, good clock management as well.
THAT IS WHAT THE HELL I'M TALKING ABOUT AJ MAKE A BUZZER BEATER FOR ONCE IN YOURLIFE.
Not a bad first half at all - some things to work on - but good to have the lead.
And SJAX showing some positive emotion after AJ's shot. I like it.
He seems to be in his element.
Pacers lead 50-46! And Peja and JO had bad 1st halves too.
I just hope the Pacers don't have their usual 3rd quarter/4th quarter collapses.
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?

What concerns me is that the Nets are converting with their possesions......and we aren't. We are lucky that we are still in this game.
[I]Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
Well this Indy team is much more fun to watch then the regular season one. And outside of SJax and Jones nobody is haveing a very good game (yet).
I know this is not going to be very popular opinion around here but I like what Carlisle is doing out there with game plan and adjustments. The areas where Indy has clear advantage are bench and coaching. If JO gets it going it may be a short series and long summer for the Nets.
I'm trying to decide if JO is really having a bad game. He's not forcing anything and he's allowing other players to score while he remains a threat.
We're better off if JO goes for quality, not quantity (of shots) IMHO.
Maybe he's having a good game?
Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group, thatís teamwork."
Of course the halftime is all about Carter and the nets
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?
This is the way I want to see Stephen Jackson play. I want to see this from him every game. Let the game come to you and stop forcing things.
"Remember the pain of my fist. That is my power!"
Does Jackson guard Carter? If so, Pacers definetely have the best player of the playoffs so far.
Chiming in at half time...
I love playoff-Jack. Well, I love him so far. I hope this is a sign of things to continue. He is moving his feet well on defence, and forcing Vince into some real difficult shots. He's not fouling him when he drives for the most part, which is just making VC look silly trying to draw the foul.
We need JO to stay out of foul trouble. When he leaves the game, there is no one who can help out on defence on the rotations when guys like RJ and VC are driving past their defenders. I hope JO can stay out of foul trouble this half, because I expect Vince and RJ to be much more aggressive.
Danny needs more playing time. Oh, and Freddie was playing an outstanding game out there. Did anyone see him rebounding? He was a machine. It looks like he's had to change his shooting mechanics to compensate for the injured hand, but whatever he did is working for him.
Keep it up boys!!!!!!!!
I'm so nervous you would think I'm playing in the damn game. We need this game 1 win so freaking bad guys.
