    So I assume Violet Palmer can only be fired if she shoots someone right?

    I think we just found something Tinsley can do for the team.

    I think everyone who's ever seen a Pacers game knew who that last play was designed for - and I wonder what sense having Foster out there makes with that little time left. A better chance at the end would have been nice, but it was a hard fought loss.

    I didn't realize Brandon Roy was a star until tonight. Thanks for showing me the light, refs.

    A few notes from this game.

    1. The team plays well together when the right combination of players are on the floor.

    2. JOB apparently has no idea what that combo is.

    3. Refs suck.

    Heckuva effort. Hibbert, Ford, Jack, Daniels and Murphy (in the 1st half) played well. Foster was atrocious.

    Brandon Roy is good. Portland has a good team, and they'll soon be a very good team pending health and experience.

    Good game. The loss stings because they played well enough to win but just couldn't pull it out.

    I agree with most of this to a T. I don't agree with saying Brandon Roy is good. Brandon Roy is outstanding. And if it's possible, Foster might have been worse than atrocious.

    Everytime Foster touches the ball, God kills a kitten.



    But seriously, nothing good came of it at all tonight. And he was embarrassingly slow on defense.

    So we were running our offense through Jeff tonight?

    And the last time I checked, Jeff's winning the race against Roy, Rasho, and Murph... Roy penetrates, we double... leaves Joel open underneath... weakside defense gives up layup or commits foul.

    Joel was Foster's man, no?

    Granted it was late and I was getting a little sleepy, but I counted 3 or 4 times in the 4th quarter where Jeff stripped the ball as the guy he was defending was about to shoot. Jeff's defense was outstanding as usual. He missed a couple of layups that he should have made - But I saw nothing to be concerned as far as his defense. Confused. I have the whole game on DVR, if I have tome tonight, I'll go back and re-watch parts of it

    Overall, it was one of the more enjoyable games of the season. Great playoff type atmosphere and the Pacers effort, intensity, energy were all outstanding. If they can play like this, they will win a good portion of the remaining games.

    Yeah Roy is that good. The thing about him is he almost has to be forced to be aggressive - usually until the 4th quarter - he is setting up his teammates - so he could average more points if he wanted too easily.

    Defensively I like when Roy Hibbert and Jeff are in the game at the same time - (hurts our offense though)

    Good to see TJ healthy and playing like he's capable, Daniels, Jack continue to play great.

    I thought the foul on Ford was a bad call (and don't buy what O'brien said after the game, I don't believe he thinks it was a foul) but I admit we didn't see the best replay angle which would be from where the ref was standing who made the call. The worst call I saw was when Violet Palmer missed the play when Jack knocked the ball off of the Blazers player in a break-way layup - Palmer was out of position to make the correct call.

    Well, his absolute inability to do anything on the defensive end is a start...

    Not being a jerk about it. He's just too inconsistent for this style of team. Plays a high-effort, good couple of nights, then comes out with a stinker like this one.

    A great effort, and a great game, it just sucks the game was decided by the refs.

    Check the box score for the story of the game: FT and PF disparity.

    How can our big men be called for travel while pivoting in the block and our guards get hacked while driving and not get to the FT line?

    Portland fans are going to have a rude wakening when they learn what playoff officiating is.

    Seem like Portland pumps a lot of crowd noise and music into their arena?

    Portland has the best atmosphere of any basketball game I've attended. And I've been to plenty of big ones.

    seems like they pump a lot of fans into the arena too, something we are having trouble doing.
