    Red face Postgame thread Pacers vs Sonics. Is JO upset? or did he injure his shoulder

    I just wonder if JO is going to have a "little meeting with O'Brien" after the game. He didn't look too happy when he was taken out late in the 4th quarter. But he wasn't getting it done.

    Sonics played an excellent game tonight and the Pacers missed a lot of layups and a ton of threes. Some who didn't see the game will say oh no the pacers just lost to the worst team in the NBA, but I give the Sonics a lot of credit.

    Too many missed free throws.

    Wow it seems like Durrant never misses a shot and that he never will.

    Edit: O'Brien said JO injured his shoulder and couldn't play at the end of the game

    He (JO) needs to chill and put the ego aside. It is time to look into moving him.

    Durrant did look good, well at least late in the game when I could tune in. If JO is having a hissy fit he needs sent out I am over him.

    We missed a lot of layups and missed a ton of threes, that was our downfall.

    There's a long list of reasons we lost tonight. Jermaine was pretty low on it.

    We scored 93 points because we missed a ton of free throws and a ton of layups. We hit the gimmies and we win this going away. Unless JO's slog-ball was keeping the free throws from going in.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    This isn't JO's loss. IDK if he's upset or not, but this loss isn't on him.

    Granger couldn't stop Durant.

    I give Tins credit for playing with the flu and I give Foster credit and I thought Shawne played well as well.

    Dun was awful. Period. It was on him too. I think he just missed another layup. Awful, awful, awful effort from him. He was poor on D and O. I mean you have to make layups if he makes his layups we win this game. PERIOD. This loss goes on DUNLEAVY. IMO.

    Durant looked great tonight, we needed to put a body on him, bump him a bit. Once he got hot, it was over.

    honestly it seemed like we missed about 7 or 8 point blank layups that should have been automatic. say we made 6 of those... 93 + 12 = 105

    just saying you can't necessarily blame JO. although his little hissy fit at the end is cause for concern.

    i wudnt blame it on, Mike, he made some good efforts, drove to the basket and he was agressive, unfortunately just lay-ups were just missed.

    i think Mike was too much focused on just passing the ball to JO and having a 2 man game down the baseline. unlike the other games, where he just looks to score. beat the other defender.

    this is a team loss. u can;t just put it on a single player!

    Way too many missed layups and wide open shots tonight. If the Pacers hit even a third of those missed shots, we'd probably by talking about a win right now. I guess it was just one of those nights.

    JO had a good game. 12 pts, 10 rebs, 1 blk. He was a little rusty to start, but eventually got it going.

    Despite that, I think he bogged down the offense. I just think the team got used to not having him in the lineup and putting him back in just threw them off a little. They easily fell into the trap of JO-ball, and the movement on offense stopped. It just seemed like before that everyone got their points in the flow of the offense. With JO, it seems like we force it into him. If he can learn to score within the flow of the offense instead of just posting up, It think it would help the team out tremendously.

    Harrison, Tinsley, Foster, and JO had good games. Murphy had a few nice plays.

    Granger did a good job of attacking the basket and getting to the line, but he missed way too many open shots. Dunleavy started off on fire, but cooled off pretty quickly. Too many missed shots for him too, especially at the rim.

    Nobody's fault when everyone is missing layups. We probably missed 15 point blank shots.

    Durant is a guy you have to force to drive, it seems we were giving him too much room. You have to play him like teams used to play Reggie Miller, make him drive

    Dunleavy missed more layups then anyone by a mile and at least three of them were unguarded. He was AWFUL. You can't complain about how you need to be involved more for us to win and then miss multiple layups. That is unacceptable and if JO did it he would be getting his head torn off.

    What hissy fit? Walking off the floor with a frown on your face doesn't qualify in the least bit as a hissy fit!

    I have mixed emotions.

    On the one hand, we missed layups and free throws. JO had a beautiful assist to Rush who missed the easiest shot in the game. JO passed out of a double team another time and Shawne hit a three.

    You could argue that JO is working hard to fit in the system.

    You could also argue that the game slows down when he's in there. Dunleavey disappears. It may be because of JO's presence, but it may not be his fault, if that makes sense.

    Nevertheless, we don't play the same uptempo game with JO in the game--although missing Quis was also a factor in slowing down, IMO.

    Durant was great, but I don't agree the Sonics played an excellent game. We played a horrible game, we shot 35% and it had little to do with what Seattle did on D. We did just lose to the worst team in the league and I give them little credit.

    Yeah UB I think you are giving the Sonics way too much credit. They were not that good tonight. Durant played well, but they weren't a good team. We were just awful.

    I think JO attempted to fit into this offense. That I definitely respect.

    The hissy fit, I will take another write off. No big deal compared to the character issues of the last few years...

    As for the game, I haven't the foggiest whether it was related to JO or not....or if we would have won without him. There was a lot of bad basketball being played out there...
