    Default Pacers/Suns Post Game 37: So close, yet so far

    Is there a reason why Tins took practically every shot in OT?

    Thumbs down Pacers/Suns Post Game 37: So close, yet so far

    Disgusting beyond all belief. Tinsley took most of the shots down the stretch in the 4th quarter, and EVERY Pacers shot in overtime.

    EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

    I don't know WTF is going on, but I have lost a ton of respect for O'Brien after letting Tinsley run wild like that.

    That was the worst display of selfish, one-on-one bull**** that I've ever seen in my life. It was like watching a game of NBA2K8 out there.

    Absolutely no excuse for that EVER happening in a real NBA game.

    I'm sick of this team pissing away huge leads by taking bad shot after bad shot early in the shot clock late in the game WHEN THEY HAVE THE LEAD, and/or having Tinsley suddenly think he's MICHAEL ****ING JORDAN with the game on the line.

    EVERY. SINGLE. SHOT.

    That's it. I'm outta here.

    I came on here to ask that. I followed the game on gametracker and I don't remember anyone else taking a shot in OT. And he was shooting crappy to begin with! What happened there?

    Yeah, if you watched this game, you have to be sick to your stomach. All those threes in the fourth was a big part of the loss. TINS did the rest. A lott of good things to look at, but at this point we need wins, bottom line.

    The Suns interior defense shut us down in the end.....but IT IS UNEXCUSEABLE that Tinsley took all of the shots towards the end of the game.

    Players like Marquis and even Owens would have been helpful here.....at least they could drive to the hoop.

    Nope.

    TINS = poor decisions down the stretch, we have other shooters on this team.

    It's easy.....Tinsley is a bad 3pt shooter...yet he took WAY too many 3pt shots.

    I really want to hear what JO'B has to say in the Post-game conference.

    One more thing....for those that watched the game.....I was under the impression that the Suns locked down the middle...which may explain why we took so many 3pt shots when we didn't need them. Can someone confirm this?

    O'Brien is known for coaching non-playoff teams into the post-season. In Indiana, he's taking a team that really should make the playoffs and making sure they don't.

    I don't care if TINS shoots the ball, but first get some ball movement or try driving the ball to the rim.

    Haven't you guys figured it out yet?

    Tins gets to do what he wants: Shoot bad percentage shots, miss free throws, jack around with one-one-one antics, hang out till all hours of the night in night clubs, have his main rival shipped to another team, and take over in overtime with wild, unbridled passion.

    Oh yeah, JOB did get in his face after the AK47 incident and Tins said he really got treated like a man.

    But no punishments. I wonder if their will be any consequences to this fiasco.

    Can someone comment on Deiner?

    I heard from Kellogg that he seemed to run and push the team when he was on the floor. I am guessing that this was during times when Nash was out....but it sounds like he could be used on an "as needed...but based on whose on the floor" situation.

    Well, we kind of have to root for him. He's all we got. At least at power forward you can conceivably put in someone else for that 10 million dollar criminal.

    Sounds like JOB wants to run with a smaller line up now, talking post game, and more time for Shawne.

    You can sit here and blame Tinsley all you want, but he does have a coach that looked like he was encouraging what we saw.

    I'm sorry, but Jim O'Brien lost us this game, PERIOD!!!! I'm not speaking of the O.T. disaster, but more of that chucking session at the end of regulation. How about mixing in a midrange shot, or some kind of secondary pass while the defense was recovering off the Tinsley double team.

    Sorry Jim, I'm not impressed and I'm lossing more and more respect for your decisions.


    Oh yeah, screw this "moral victory" garbage that they were spewing in the post game. What a freaking joke, the coach doesn't know how to unplug a guy from single handedly screwing us, but we are going to talk like we actually accomplished something. Unbelieveable!

    Over the last 7:45 of the game, Tinsley went 4-for-14 from the floor. The rest of the team went 1-for-2 (Danny missed a shot in the 4th, and Dun tipped in a shot in OT).

    Having cooled off a bit from my previous post, yes, I think your point is correct.

    JOB has some onus on him for the fact that our motion is not good. It used to be. Peck noted in his thread this lack of offensive strategy. That being the case, we are left with few options, and Tinsley takes over.

    But maybe, just maybe, other guys on the team should get to shoot the ball, and maybe even touch it, in overtime.

    That was pathetic out of Tinsley. That might've been the longest stretch of selfish basketball I've ever seen in my life. I cannot believe OBrien condoned that and I'm more than a little 'unhappy' that he didn't pull JT or at least have a LONG sideline talk to him on a timeout.

    If anyone wants to know why this team can't connect with hometown fans, you can use the video of this game as exhibit #1. Indiana fans will NEVER accept that type of ball. JOB royally screwed up by allowing Tinsley to continue it, if for nothing else than the picture it painted for fans watching on TV (or listening on radio).

    How can you be a teammate of a player like that and not have problems with what he did???

    It's little wonder this team has chemistry problems.

    JT should be suspended for the next game.

    Here's the good news about all this - we are all but guaranteeing a playoff berth for the Atlanta Hawks!

    I honestly think the reason Tins took every shot in OT was because our players were completely exhausted. They gave Tins the ball and iso'd him against Marion pretty much every play in OT and NOBODY was cutting or moving. It almost looked like he was supposed to be taking every shot- it was ugly. I feel bad for Jeff, Danny, Troy, and Shawne, they played their butts off. But if there is a silver lining, we played phenomenally the first 3 1/2 quarters, maybe we'll learn how to finish one day...

    On Deiner- he suffered a nasty sprained ankle and probably will be out a while (speculating here) but when he was in he pushed the tempo very well and hit some shots.
