    Nice way to bounce back from the Cavs game. Quite the eventful game: Dunleavy drained 3's, Jamaal continued his all-star playmaking ways, Troy and Tyrus didn't get along, JO played with nice hustle (4 blocks), but most of all:
    Rush was our freaking high scorer!!!

    Those are our boys. I think Obie proved tonight that basically, he knows more about basketball than all of us...by far.

    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.

    good W...
    have to say the Bulls just didn't put up much of a fight after the first QT...they were also playing on a back to back...maybe we wore them down?

    Wow one good game lets throw him a party.

    Look, I'm happy Rush played well, but he has hurt us far more than he has helped us.

    wasnt really a fight, Thomas slapped Murph, Murph tried retaliating but the Ref was pullin his jersey, lucky us.

    Dun and Rush were great in the 3rd, Dun feeding Rush

    JO really compliments Dunleavy's passing game.

    Tins played awesome

    Interesting stats.

    Marquis was 8-10, 3 assists and no turnovers. Strong.

    Dunleavy nearly matched JO in points and rebounds, but also had 7 assists. Also an impressive performance.

    We don't have any A+ players, but we have several who can play as A players if we work together as a team.

    If the sum is greater than the parts, than this Pacer team could really do some good things this year.

    You mean Jermaine's becoming a vocal leader? "Gee, DunDun, your passing recently is really sharp. You really do a good job of threading the needle and getting the ball where it needs to go. Keep up the good work!"

    Great to hear!




    Or did you mean that he "complements" Dun's passing game?

    And if that's what you mean, wouldn't it be that Dunleavy's passing game really complements Jermaine?

    Carry on!

    Man, Diener's only three tonight looked really bad. Do you think upper-body strength is an issue for him trying to get the ball into the basket from all the way outside the arc?

    For all the nothing in between you could still say that Rush has given us 2 W's, which is pretty good going for a cheap recruit.

    Really impressed with JO's shooting % since he came back, and great to see Tins play well.

    I didn't pay attention to the game at all today and then I read that Rush was the leading scorer. I then screamed WTF (said all the words) really loud when I got home from work. I'm happy obviously...

    Jamaal Tinsley added 18 points and eight assists for Indiana in first home game since he was shot at, but unhurt, early Sunday morning in downtown Indianapolis. He was booed by the home fans in pregame introductions for being in his third late-night incident in about 14 months, but they cheered him for most of the game.
    really? Thats lame...

    Just got back from the game, and from where I sit the player that turned the game around for the Pacers was Marquis Daniels. He came in shut down Ben Gordon, he came in and gave the Pacers a lot of energy and I thought he was by far our most important player tonight. If I thought Daniels could stay healthy I would want him to play 35 minutes ery game - that is how important I think he is and I believe you could make a very strong argument that he is the Pacers best player. He's one of those players that cannot be appreciated unless you see him in person and up close. He does so many little things and he has what I call great basketball instincts - things you cannot learn - things you cannot teach. either you are born with them or not. He does so many good things defensively - I think he is just so important to this team.

    Rush also was outstanding, but I'm not surprised - if he gets the time he can play like this. (but you can say that about a lot of players)

    The reason the game changed midway through the second quarter was the pacers defense, once they started playing harder, and challenging shots - the Bulls stopped scoring and that helps the pacers offense.

    It was fun to see Ben Wallace struggle - I'm sorry, I don't hate players, but Ben is as close to hate I'll ever have for any player.

    Fun game tonight,

    Did anyone else notice Kareem is not just a perimeter scorer? I was glad to see him show the ball and fake to the baseline.

    Man, I don't remember who it was, but somebody ran out to get him at the transition three and he just ducked and went right by. It was beautiful.
