I promised more photos if it worked out that we got free/cheap club level tickets to more games, so I tried to please everyone in the Pacemate photos thread HERE, and I will attempt the same here.
We liked this game a whole lot more than the Blazers game, and I agree that the Pacers shoulda won this one. Friggin' Dirk Diggler can eat my shorts.
I will say that I seriously don't sweat losses like this one. We played good enough to win, we were competitive, and we gave them all they wanted. That is for certain. Games like this make me hope that very few changes are made to this team over the summer. I could see a few of the scrubbies changing names, but I like the two or three rotations we have.
I love being a Pacer fan!
Hibby blocked it with his ELBOW.
Jason Kidd being Jason Kidd. Snuck in and stole a lazy pass and jetted down for the easy lay-in....
...only he BLEW THE LANDING!
Damn pro photogs and their strobes. The least they could do would be to give me a pocket wizard on the same frequency and let me get in on the action. Sigh.
Marky-Mark and Slicky-Slick. I'm starting to like the tradition of snipering him every game I attend. The next game where I have tix on the same side as he is broadcasting from, I'm going to go over and bother him during pregame! I'll make sure I tell him about my snipering because I won't attempt to presume that he checks out my photo threads! Love ya, Mark! It is always a pleasure and a privelege for us too!
The only Pacers steal of the game. Credited to Fosterific.
Nice acting to try and get the reach-in call, but no dice.
And yet he made the shot...
More fantastic defense. Three defenders taller than the shooter, and yet he gets it on the rim...
I love the german goose-step leg kick-out...Definitely clears some space!
I thought Stevie had some great intensity and tenacity during the third quarter and was a major impetus to the Pacers getting back in the game and really making Dallas work for the win. Great job, Stevie!
"OK, all I have to do is keep DD in front of me...Shouldn't be a problem....I wonder what we're having for supper when I get home....hmmmm....that girl in the front row has a nice blouse on and pretty hair.....I'm digging the boots.....
Me and JJ are the only two who apparently saw what was coming here...
I swear he looks like an eighth grader. But I like him. A LOT.
Foster decided to take a little break while the action was going on the other end of the court. Pretty relaxing having an entire HALF of a basketball court to yourself!
This wasn't a foul. This was a JUMP BALL.
The crappy gamewinner. What a dick.
"Nice shot, Dirk. The game is almost over, so here is your wallet back. Thanks for letting me 'hold it' for you during the game...WINK WINK"
Didn't even have a chance...
