BLUE COLLAR GOLD SWAGGER
Sweet, only saw a few mins of it but we played great
well, last year we couldn't beat crappy teams, so this is good.
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
hey pacers gurl, i miss your play-by-play posts~ lol
damn i was hoping jamaal would of gotten a double double, good win though
Sorry, I've been away from the computer.
Bobcats - No internet that day.
Hornets - went to the game.
Knicks - away from the computer.
I'll probably be doing the play by play on Tuesday vs. Sixers.
Marquis and Tinsley can break down the D as well. And Rawle Marshall looked good in preseason.
It's not a lack of talent, it's a lack of desire.
I will however agree that we don't have enough penetration to the hoop, because there is no good reason to get your first free throw of the game with 6:30 left in the THIRD QUARTER! That's ridiculous.

i would like to see baston playing.. he can do the dirty job and get some rebounds
I just noticed that Runi has a 4.5:1 assist to turnover ratio this year. Pretty impressive considering last year ballhandling was one of his biggest weaknesses.

Your horse is dead, get off it already...
Good win tonight this is how we want to play every night IMO. Here comes my recap. No bad tonight, just ok, good, and great. Only thing to really complain about was the free throw disparity. I highly doubt we went an entire half without drawing a shooting foul, but I digress.
Granger is again not playing how we need him to just yet, but that being said I am glad Rick is not tinkering with the lineup let them play and work through their problems. It will come to Danny eventually just like last year though he will need some time to adjust to being a starter.
Jack had his worst game of the season tonight, but he still avoided the yacking with the refs and he drew a few charges so as long as the hustle is there I am a happy camper.
Quis had his worst game tonight too, just never really looked in the flow on either end, but thats ok because he is new and you would expect him to still be on a bit of a learning curve.
Foster has been less than impressive to me the past two games, but I still don't think he is hurting us and I don't expect him to. That being said I can't say he is helping us either just yet.
Harrison was blah to meh yet again. Nothing to really get excited about.
JO belongs here cause I said I was going to be less and less forgiving to his problems on the boards. His offense is still very efficient and his shot blocking and defense the past two games has been nothing short of spectacular, BUT he has to start crashing the board he has too.
Tins, Runi, and DA were AWESOME tonight. And we thought our PG rotation was going to be a weak spot, silly us. Plus we have our supposed defensive stopper in Greene coming back in a week or two. Lets start with Tins what a game from him tonight ran the offense to an absolute T, no problems at all. 14 assists and only 2 turnovers plus he was extremely efficient in his scoring. I was thrilled with him and this is why I will maintain that he is a top 5 PG when healthy. DA was basically DA tonight just great, his shooting has been spectacular for us. Not to mention how good he is on the pressure D front. Runi was very good in the 4th mediocre up until that point but really got in a groove. He is absolutely unstoppable when he can go to his right and get that midrange J in the lane.
Our chemistry tonight was just plain awesome Kellog and Denari touched on it and anyone that watched the game can attest to the fact that our bench was up and cheering the whole 4th quarter. That made me so happy I can't even explain. I haven't seen a bench that happy since the late 90's teams. Even the 60 win team never looked that happy together. Oh BTW I think its safe to say that AJ was a problem child. We committed highway robbery in that trade with Dallas one of the best moves Bird and Walsh have collaborated. Fantastic typical Walsh move, doesn't look like much at first, but has a huge impact on the team.
Well, I think that just about covers it, oh wait, am I forgetting someone? Oh yeah thats right Al had a pretty nice little game, that is if a pretty nice little game is dominating offensively from tip to finish. What a game from him. Fantastic effort and he scored from inside and out. Tins got him involved early in both halves and Al took it from there. Really happy to see him get off the snide.
Great win tonight. I'm happy, now lets go get the first W at home and beat the snot out of Philly.
Tins is effective, but he's not the greatest finisher in the world given his size/strength, leaping ability. I don't watch the preseason, so I have no opinion on Rawle.
I'm just saying, when Jack is your best option to break down a defense and there's not a single guy on the team that you have any confidence to give the ball to and run a 1-4 set, your offense is missing something.
Crazy as it may sound to some, Runi is our best option for breaking down a defense and making something happen.
"I like our group of people," Ainge told USA Today. "I'm trying to teach them about basketball, and they're trying to teach me about analytics."
I don't know what happened to Jermaine's Rebounding averages but jjjeeezz sure his blocks have gone up but what happened to the 10 part of the 20/10 I'm not tooooooo concerned about the fouls I think the refs were reallllly letting alot go and they were trying to make up for it at the very end. All criticisms aside that was fun as hell to watch, and I love our bench standing and supporting their teamates in the 4th quarter that is awesome!! Tinsley carved up that defense tonight, I lost count how many times we burned them I was laughing too hard for a few of them. I really hope we can have more games like this rebounding MUST improve though.
If we run the backcourt like this against the Sixers....I'm pretty confident that they will do good.
I really think that the lack of defense at the PG spot from the Knicks really contributed to how well Tinsley, Sarunas and Darrell did.
We won't do as well when we play against a more defensive minded team like the Bulls.
