    Default Pacers vs Knicks Postgame

    This was the worst coaching job I have seen in a long time. I still dont understand how there was no timeout called before Jack took that final shot. JOB is one of the worst coaching that has been hired by this franchise.

    His substitutions made no sense either. Hibbert deserved a lot more mins. He didnt deserve to be subbed out so early in the 1st quarter.

    On another note, Lee impressed me a lot today also. I have been very high on Lee and mentioned that a lot on this board. For those of you that havent seen him play, how do you guys like his game now? He finished with 26 points, 10 rebs, 5 steals and 12/15 shooting. Not a bad game at all. He wouldnt be our starting PF answer, more of a PF/C off the bench to bring that energy

    I'd much rather replace the coach sooner than later ... if it is inevitable...


    I am always willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt, but that benefit is really starting to wear thin .. and quickly..

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Didn't know an 11- win team could have ugly wins... Any win is a nice win when you are a bad team like we are!

    If JOB is replaced, which I dont see happening though I want it to happen, its not happening this season. He will finish the season as the Pacers coach.

    Anyone know what his contrat is like?

    I like Lee, but we've already got an older model in Foster and, maybe, a younger one in McBob.

    Feels good to win. Does a W over NY equal 1/2 a W in the standings?

    A pretty ugly affair both ways. Good defense painfully absent both ways.

    Jack with a great game. Appears we are now officially a smallball team.

    I was wondering why he didnt play either. Might be a trade coming, who knows? Kind of hard just to speculate from that

    I also noticed that Rasho was not in the lineup? Was it the small ball match-up or something deeper like a pending trade?

    Obie is not going anywhere. Just sit back and consider him our ticket to a high draft pick.

    In the 35 or so years I have followed basketball, I have rarely if ever criticized a coach. He is getting more from me than any other coach in any sport. The fact he benched Hibbert might be explained. The fact he didn't call a time-out and lucked out with helter-skelter scoring a bucket at the end...is more concerning. Most good coaches would have called a play at the end. I would like someone to explain why he didn't call a time-out.

    No timeout? I dont care how good of a shot that was by Jack by NO TIMEOUT.
    No timeout means the Defense can't set up out of the timeout that you wanted so badly.

    Then why have a coach at all? We needed a play called, we were lucky it turned in our favour
    Hey, if you are down in that situation.... I favor a timeout, but when you are tied and the worst thing that can happen is overtime on a missed shot. I'd rather catch them off guard then playing against an entrenched defense.

    Whoops. Posted in the game thread on accident so I'll repeat...

    must the emphatically anti-JOB crowd continue the whining about him? It's a LONG season and it's next to impossible he gets canned this year. And I don't even consider him to be particularly good.

    If they lose you hate. If they win you hate. It is a road win celebrate.

    Knicks were 0-14 when trailing going into the 4th. If we could not close this one out then it would have been bad.

    Jack was stellar. Murphy was loss on defense, but picked up some rebounds.

    I would suspect that Rasho didn't play because the Knicks have no C, and Obie's decided to give the limited "big man" minutes in that situation to Hibbert.

    I would've liked to see a little more of Hibbert, but I'll take the win.

    Man, my standards must be way too high. I enjoy ugly games, but only when it's because of good defense. This was just plain ugly. Maybe some of the worst basketball I have seen in decades.

    Its not about hating, its about losing a 10 point lead in the 4th to such a bad team. If we cannot hold a lead in the 4th to a team like NY, who are we going to hold a lead against? The game should not have been close, we were beating them through the first 3 quarters then collapsed at the end, as usual

    My guess why no Rasho, while I was watching the game, was due to the BTB tomorrow with the Kings having bigs. A tired Rasho and Hibbert are useless against Miller and bigs. JMOAA

    We have not traded Rasho, that's not even worth speculating on. Some of you people must REALLY want a trade right now. We are rebuilding. With most NBA teams, rebuilding ones included, teams are only going to trade right before the trade deadline or during the summer. Right now is not either one of those times. Please relax.

    We are in year one of a multi-year rebuilding process. Please don't expect us to require all of our pieces immediately. You guys must have driven your parents crazy on Christmas Eve.

    I didn't really see ugliness. Both teams were playing hard. I was somewhat impressed with the comeback. At least we closed one out for a change.
