    Is DWade playing tonight?

    Would be nice to win this, but I cant see it if Wade plays. And Shaq is back too, just makes it harder for us.

    This is another one of those big games. If we can get a win over Shaq and Wade it will do a lot to help the confidence of this team. Lets go Pacers!

    I believe both Wade and Shaq are playing tonight, though Shaq's minutes will be watched.

    Wonder how are we going to deal with Dunleavy vs Wade ?
    Have Daniels play some at the 2 ?, Granger switch over ?

    Why Not Us ?

    Danny will guard Wade, Dunleavy will guard the 3.

    The 3 probably being Kapono, I like that matchup.

    Also I hope Murphy's perimeter game, keeps Mourning or Shaq out of the paint some.
    That would be a major plus.

    Why Not Us ?

    Haslem will be on Murphy, Zo and Shaq are going to guard JO. I think its obvious.

    Then JO should be able to get them into foul trouble b/c he's much quicker.

    And apparently it's not that obvious since Haslem IS on JO

    Not exactly a defensive struggle.

    I must say that I don't care much for Miami. To me it is still that tacky tourist Florida feel.

    That's our fourth turnover - but a heads up foul by Dunleavy to stop the fast break.

    Turnovers are killing the Pacers right now.

    Making Jason Williams look like a star isn't helping either. By the way, we're nearly 6 minutes in and Wade hasn't taken a single shot.

    Okay, Danny has just proven my point for me in an outstanding way regarding his abilities. People want to put him at SG and think he's a great defender, but he's not. He might become a great defender, but he'll never defend the SG that well.

    Wade is not the normal SG of course, but what he did to DG on back to back plays was the same thing people complained about Jack or Tinsley about. OLE. Wade went baseline on a simple upfake (I keep saying that DG bites these really bad) and then he walked down the lane on the next trip off a basic PnR that left DG at the FT line watching an uncontested layup.

    He is nowhere near quick enough or clever enough to defend any SGs. Wade makes it look worse than normal, but it's just the extreme version of the standard point. He's had trouble with other SGs too.

    At this point I see Shawne as more of a SG than DG in fact. Love Danny at the 3 and I understand that he's still learning the NBA defense, but I just wish some fans would watch situations like tonight before coming up with the pipe dream lineup where DG becomes a shooting guard.
