    Hey I was wondering, if you don't mind me asking, where do you get the stuff you use to organize these threads? I make threads for other sites and can never find these sorts of things.

    It's all public info from a variety of sources on the web including the Pacers own team web page on nba.com and pretty much any of the sports sites. The projected lineups are sometimes from what the team page says, sometimes a bit of a guess that occasionally I update from feedback from pacersdigest members who have the latest injury news.

    So I take it Granger won't be back today?
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    The Blazers are WC Finals contender this year. They could win 2 series. I don't think it'll happen though.

    He could be. I would imagine he would be a game-time decision.

    Also, he may not start if he comes back, and will be limited.

    Is this the first really big game for the Pacers in a few years?

    I know we're only 27-36, but it feels good to be playing in a big game in terms of gaining ground on the Bucks, Nets and Bulls.

    Here are the game notes, guys. This is what some of the media guys get before each game. Each team provides one. I got a print-out of it before my blog game.


    BTW: Granger is out.

    I hope that he is ready because this would be by far this biggest game of his career. The other one would be his breakaway game vs. Boston in October.

    I don't see him back tonight. Let's just hope that this is Jack's biggest night as a Pacer.

    A win tonight would mean a lot. Not only in terms of the standings (it would mean a lot in the standings), but also as a sign that this team is capable of playing big in big games. Even if the other teams won, I'd still feel much better about our playoff chances.


    That being said, Portland has a pretty good squad, and we have been less than inspiring on the road of late. I'm not getting my hopes too high.

    So, how many points do you expect Brandon Roy to get tonight?
    What about Aldridge?
    Are the others any good? I don't watch nor pay attention to much west coast.

    I could be wrong....but I think that BC just uses a "base template" to make the Game Threads and then goes back to "fill in and replace" all of the information.

    I tried to do one before by "quoting" his thread ( which basically makes a copy of the Message Board coding ) and then would replace all of the appropriate information.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I'll try that. His threads are perfect and i've always wanted mine to look like his but just didn't know how to do it.

    I don't know if the Message Board that you do that on will have the same coding ( as in the wrappers ) as the one here on PD....so I'm not sure if that would work.
