    Default Pacers vs. Nuggets Post-Game Thread: Pacers blow 25-point lead, drop 3rd straight

    I don't even know what to say. This has got to be one of the worst losses I've ever witnessed as a Pacers fan. Just absolutely embarassing in every possible way.

    A 32-point turnaround. Only 32 second-half points.

    I officially announce my resignation from the Sunshiner Brigade.

    I think I'm gonna be sick.

    I saw very little of the game except for Tinsley throwing away the game in the 4th, but where the hell is the character? Where is the desire to win?

    Teams who score 46 points in the first quarter should NEVER lose that game.

    It's just a sign of mental weakness and can't be tolerated. They have the physical ability, but this is getting nauseating.

    Awful, disgraceful, embarrassing, sickening, horrible, sad part is I could go on. This by far the most EMBARRASSING loss I have ever been a part of as a Pacer fan. Not another team in the NBA would have blown a 25 point lead. Not a single one. I guarantee that right here and now. Especially at home.
    Not a single person that witnessed this game live will be paying to watch this team for quite some time, you can book that if you are on the team. They want fan support and then they pull this. They don't deserve fan support.
    The offense was brilliant even in the 3rd quarter if you ask me, the Nuggz were just really hot, but the offense in the 4th was abysmal. I will grant you this it turned into the Tins and JO show. Tins didn't look for anyone else, but JO and if Tins got it back he shot it.

    This was gross. Period. This team should be ASHAMED. They have the mental capactiy of infants out there every single one. Even Dunleavy doesn't get a pass, his defense on Diawara and Kleiza was absolutely awful. Just horrible. He looked like a freaking moron on the defensive end. I don't think he contested a single three point shot. If Dunleavy is honestly the smartest player we have then we are in trouble in the intelligence department. He might be a rocket scientist on offense, but he has the IQ of a middle school player defensively.

    3rd game in a row, the Pacers run out of gas by the end of the third quarter, so they don't have enough energy to be effective in the fourth quarter.

    I think it's fatigue. In the 4th, they just don't seem to have enough energy to get that needed "oomph" on their jumpshots. And when their jumpers aren't falling, that's pretty much the death knell for the team.

    So, can we draw a correlation between our first half success and Tinsleys' 8 assists, to our second half woes and his...what was it...1 assist?

    Could that be from misuse of the bench?

    ok, first of all, it was the same damn offense they ran in the first half. the shots simply stopped falling. They didn't stop "caring" about making baskets, they just went cold. That is why I said waaaaay back after the first quarter that they would have to keep up the hot shooting to win. The Nuggets LOVE this type of game.

    Teams who score 46 points in the first quarter should NEVER lose that game.

    It's just a sign of mental weakness and can't be tolerated. They have the physical ability, but this is getting nauseating.
    Again, anybody can score a lot of points if they take a lot of shots. This is the NBA. If you get out and run, you're going to find ways to score.

    I don't believe mental weakness has anything to do with this game, unless by mental weakness you're referring to Obie, in which case I agree. Indiana does not have the overall talent makeup to win consistently playing Nellie-ball for four quarters. Eventually, they need to slow the game down and get quality shots closer to the basket.

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

    Granger with another rough shooting night but it was the JO & Jamaal show what killed us in the last 2 quarters.

    And why did Tinsley play almost all 24 minutes of the 2nd half? I bet you Diener or Owens could give us some better minutes from the PG spot, especially by not turnung the ball over or getting your shot blocked multiple times!

    Absolutely incredible, we set a world record, no team in the NBA ever loses after being 25 up, never happened, will never happen again, we are absolutely shamed for the ages.

    Of course JT and JO gave this game away, they threw it, playing the most miuntes the coach made sure that whenever the other players were on the floor and creating that enormous lead they were taken off and he made sure by bringing JT and JO back that the Bugz could keep on scoring.

    The refs agreed with you all, they made sure to not call any fouls made on those players, unless they could call them ON these players.

    No, then the absolute star of the evening, our best player by far, Dany Granger, he was fantastic, he was better then Garnett out there, he made every shothe looked at, got intercepts on passes, defended better then anyone on the team, never lost his man, like JT and JO did all the time, and was always in time for the defensive rotation, and then made his shots with authority on the other end.

    He should have taken more shots then anyone on the team!

    Of course had it not been for the abysmal play of Shawn Williams, Danny might even have gotten us the W.

    And had coach played more of Diener and Owens instead of JT, together with Danny and Quis, then we sure a certain would have won.

    I don't know whats up with Owens being buried on the bench. Diener makes sense his shot isn't falling and Iverson would have abused him all night, but I don't know why Owens can't buy any time.

    I agree with this.

    Instead, however, we just keep jacking up jumpers and missing them. That's STUPID basketball right there.

    Able I think you need to take a deep breath and really take a long hard look at Tinsley, particularly his offensive performance the final 8 or so minutes of the 4th quarter. It was horrible.

    I saw the game, and the only thing I had in my mind was the fact that how frustrated Pacer fans were going to be this is a tough loss for you guys playing so positively in the first 2 and half quarters and then just to see that taken away will make you feel awful.

    its tough losing big leads especially 25 point leads. Jim O'Brien has some adjustments to do cause his supposed stress for discipline did not show in the players.

    Yeah, you could say that. Although I guess it's hard to go to the bench when some of your players are nursing an injury of some kind or by putting them in, you're greatly endangering your lead.

    Either way, I really don't think the Pacers are built for this style of play. I'm not saying that they should go back to Carlisle-ball. But somewhere in between would be nice. I'm just not seeing encouraging signs so far. Sure, they started off well, but apparently they hit some sort of wall by game 4.

    Tonight's game was nothing more than an extension of the 2nd half of last season. Play well early, stop motion on offense, other team comes back without having to use a lot of energy.


    A TEAM PLAYING THE 2ND OF BACK TO BACK GAMES SHOULD NEVER COME BACK FROM 25 POINTS DOWN.


    Only a team playing like the Pacers could allow that to happen. We need some lobotomies..we being the players and coach for allowing that to unravel.

    That's the system, though. You can't applaud Obie for giving his players green lights, and then get upset at the players when they miss them. They're just playing within the system.
