    Default Post-Game 45: The Streak Finally Ends (for the Heat)

    15 straight teams beat the Miami Heat. We didn't. Go Pacers!

    Dunleavy wanted to play for a while.
    Rush couldn't find the basket for a while.
    David Harrison couldn't find the court.
    KG played a great game, though the BLOUNT jersey was a bit confusing.
    The Heat had more points, assists, blocks, rebounds, and steals than us, and they shot better from the field, BUT we had more turnovers and personal fouls.


    We made it interesting towards the end there, but that was just to **** off as many Pacer fans as possible.

    Jim O'Brien, coach of the ****ing year folks.

    The worst part about this game is that we can't even blame Violet Palmer.

    The worst thing about losing to the Heat: Shade was right.

    Yeah...That was a great look and/or play.

    I'm not mad about that. He hits that 7 times out of 10.

    We lost the game at the end of the 3rd when Dwyane treated us like Marcellus Wallace in the basement for about 4 minutes and the Heat went ahead and got all that confidence going. And, frankly, can't say there's anything better we could have done about that. He just entered a zone and took over to hit some sick shots for a while. No one in the world can stop a guy that penetrates like that, spins into the lane tossing up bank shots and is also hitting fading threes in the corner.

    Nah it's not the coach, we still sucked with Carlisle. The roster needs changes and it's a damn shame that management won't wake up and do something.

    Really sad loss. Dunleavy played so well.


    I dunno how serious the thing is about O'Brien coaching defense and the players running the offense. But something has to change at that end. They just took too many 3s.

    I had the radio on briefly in the 1st quarter when Chris and Quin were talking about how badly the Pacers were shooting and how many turn overs the Heat had. I couldn't help but laugh to think how these two franchises have fallen on hard times. While I'm laughing I say to myself "This isn't funny." Then I said "It's hysterical." And before anyone throws a brick at me of course I meant you have to laugh or you'll cry.

    We had a 20 left... should have used it.

    When Rush missed that three (good look, can't blame him) I knew it was over.
    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!

    I was at Conseco the other day and I found out where the Pacers front office keeps their playoff hopes...



    After Murphy and O'Neal's contracts, we really couldn't afford anything nicer...

    "A bad omen, for certain: Miami entered 2-19 when trailing at halftime, with the biggest deficit successfully overcome by the Heat at a game's midpoint this year being a six-point hole against lowly Minnesota on Dec. 17."

    1) Nice avi ViporVisor.

    2) I care about the Pacers, but I don't really care that they lost this game. That's disturbing to me,, but I feel forced to feel that way, because if we don't UTTERLY suck management will go on for like FOREVER with trying to patch something that can't be patched.

    You know, I was consoling myself that we've played 7 more games on the road, which accounts for us being 7 games under .500. Then I looked at our next 7 home games:

    Detroit
    Houston
    Orlando
    San Antonio
    Portland
    Boston
    Cleveland

    Don't mind the Rush shot... it was a good look, but I'd still like to see Dunleavy take those shots. He just seems to hit big shots... be it to keep us in the game, or stop a drought.

    His pass at the end was just a bad decision.

    I also felt Deiner should have been in over Owens at the end, Owens played pretty, kinda took some I'm DWade shots at the end with just pulling up and shooting jumpers.

    Down 2... on the road... you go for the win, and I would've had Diener on the floor over Owens.

    Doesn't matter though. oddly enough we're still in the playoff hunt. Probably won't do much there unless there's some changes made somewhere... hell.. anywhere.

    Sadly our best trading pieces seem to be our ONLY trading pieces. And I don't want to trade Danny. Not wanting to trade Rush seeing what he's shown of late and what we're paying him. And I've felt Dunleavy has been our best player this year. Still overpaid, but he's turned into my favorite Pacer and seems to be a good fit in our scheme of things.

    We need a defensive minded/pass first PG with a little size, and a defensive minded big man that can get up and down the floor.

    We find those two pieces anywhere and I feel this team can turn things around...... THIS SEASON

    I thought the loss was sealed with about 6 minutes remaining, IIRC, when Diener turned it over twice in as many possessions, extending the Miami lead and killing any semblance of an offensive attack.

    Me might win one of those... if we are lucky.

    I'm sorry but I am really cheering for a tank now. We still have time to take a shot at a lottery pick if we really buckle down and suck. I'm just hoping management doesn't make a trade to upgrade us enough to make us mediocre and out of the lottery. I say trade Tinsley for an expiring and sit JO for the year.

    Or when Andre Owen's two straight turnovers early in the fourth gave Miami it's largest lead and a lot of momentum. Both our pg's had relatively few turnovers, but when they did throw it away it was all in a brief stint.
