    Murphy = Rebound Grinch.

    It's real easy to watch TV and see perhaps some things that could be done differently, but I can't imagine a coach ever telling one of his players to not go after rebounds. If his teammates are behind him and can see an opportunity Murphy can't, then they should let him know to let the ball go past.

    Let's not rehash the Murphy-rebounds argument. Let's talk about Josh Smith stealing all of our passes instead.

    I hate this offense where everyone steps above the free throw line ... it sucks !! Plus every team knows it already that's why they jump into our passing lanes so easily.

    OK. Smith is handling the ball more on our possessions than our players are.

    Dunleavy looks completely out of whack. Errant passes, short on jumpers, he's fallen down a couple times, and on that second J Smoove entry pass steal he didn't step in front of him to stop the ball, he just let Roy pick up the foul.

    Hansbrough takes some goofy looking shots, but my God is he a bruiser.

    Have they said anything lately about Dunleavy being sub-par physically. He really looks like he's laboring and playing hurt.

    It isnt about what the coach says.. Its about individual smarts. " Do I cut in front of a teammate to get a board " or " Do I let this guy take it so he can maybe create a quick bucket or a foul "..

    No kidding. Some of them he was just waiting on and other he cut right up the gut and cut off the pass. He is pretty sneaky on defense.

    I'm not sure, but I agree... he really doesn't look comfortable.

    On the other hand, TJ's probably having his best game of the season. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

    Yeah, T.J. has been the spark. I'm glad to see him have some good fortune.

    We have to trade or sack the coach, ppl who support Indiana around the world will turn off from watching.

    Disagree, he's not making plays so much as getting lucky *hansborough bailed him out a few times..* with the exception of the last one. He had a game, where he was making plays..doing the point guard stuff.

    But he's shooting the mid range well.

    TJ didn't start again...right? Love the effort off the bench. Too bad he stinks as a starter.

    I have noticed that Dunleavy simply has no lift in his shot..

    He really needs to just miss a few games and instead of trying to work his legs into gameshape by playing, to hit the physical therapy and strength conditioning on his lower body/legs for a week..

    I really think that IS the problem in his shot, cause all his 3's the last 3 games have been pretty much short, cause he don't have any jump in his jumpshot ..

    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.

    I think the most important thing is he's not turning it over, especially against this Hawks team. He's got 1 turnover, but I remember that was on a nice pass that Head just couldn't get to. He's finding people and he's hitting his shots. He looks decisive for once, instead of out of control like usual. Couldn't ask for more out of him.

    Anyone know the points off turnovers differential?

    Troy certainly isn't a bad player. He's probably the best player we have right now. Maybe also Roy and a developing Brandon.

    Nope.. Just wish he would stop snuffing out potential fast break opportunities.
