    I got to see the game tonight on TV. They actually played a very good game with what looked like a plan. It was different than the other games I have been able to see this year. They went to Hibbert a lot in the first half and he responded with a stellar performance. They started to shoot jumpers in the second half too much, although, giving JOB credit, he pulled MD out before he could completely destroy the lead and momentum.

    It was a well played, fun game to see..

    Is it just me, or did Luther Head have a quiet 18 pts? I guess Roy and Rush really caught my attention

    And props to Dun for rebounding on a night when not much else was clicking for him.

    The young guys made a statement to O'Brien tonight. I'm really interested to see how he distributes playing time once Foster and Murphy come back, obviously with the hopes that their minutes decrease. Then again, I had the same hopes after the 5-game winning streak.

    I believe much of that was in the 1st half, that's probably why it's less prominent in your head.

    Man how can you not love what we saw out of Roy tonight? He's been playing well and showing something for a while but this? That wasn't some guy off the street, that was Dwight effin Howard! I don't wanna talk like he's the next coming of Kareem or something but boy was that an impressive game out if him tonight.

    That was a great effort from all of them. In front of a larger crowd too.

    Hibbert, Rush and Price - you can see the potential in that youth. All of them had some very good moments.

    Rush- really became aggressive in the second half and scored. He's a fantastic defensive player as well. It shows you though, a good offense *pound theball in the post* fits him much better.

    Price - was quite good in the first half. Had some weird turnovers in the second, but he seemed to get his mind out of it, and made a good play to end the half. *setting up Dun*

    Hibbert - Hibbert just outplayed Dwight Howard. Good for him. Really good for him.

    The vets acted like vets. Solid and Smart. Even Dun at the end.

    Dun - missing shots most of the night, but he made big ones.
    Earl- also made big ones, and settled the team down. I'm concerned though. He's logging huge minutes. If JOB doesn't want to play AJ for more than 15, he should play Diener for five somewhere. Or if he wants to play Watson most of the fourth, then bring AJ in earlier in the third. Especially with back to backs coming up.
    Jones was solid, very good defensively.
    Head has been good for about twenty points for a while now. Really good for him.
    I really liked the team effort on the boards too.

    Roy is officially the center of the future. He loves to play the game (there is a lot to be said for that) and he is an intelligent kid with a lot of great qualities. I thought it was interesting to see how big of a deal Rick Kamla and Steve Smith were making out of Roy after the game on NBAtv. He truly did dominate Dwight Howard.

    Brandon Rush also looked great out there on defense and knocked down some critical shots in the third quarter. Dahntay Jones looked like the Dahntay from earlier in the season (he must of really not liked playing with TJ Ford).



    Dunleavy looks better, still not great. We MUST draft/trade for another young PG. Watson is nothing more than a 1 year rental as far as I am concerned...watch out when this team has a real point guard. I am liking the future of this team, assuming we can turn Foster/Murphy into some assets, we are looking like a young team on the rise.
    *removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.

    Yes, I wholeheartedly agree. That will be an important adjustment to make in the coming week.

    .
    Maybe we should keep Murphy just to get a good draft pick out of him. If we trade him and end up with the 10th pick or around there again, I'll be pissed. We need a top 5 pick to go with our core, at worst case, top 7.

    I would not complain if Price got more minutes. It's just a blessing TJ's not playing.

    When Murph comes back, it's going to be interesting. Considering we are 7-3 without him...and plain terrible with him...only a fool would put him out there. You have to at least roll with whatever works. We shall see.

    Love to see Tyler out there...but as a 6th man....I think this is the best team:

    Price, Rush, D Jones, Granger, Hibbert

    This game did not happen.

    The five game win streak players only beat teams with terrible records.
    how many of these players played in the 5 game streak, Jones, Watson and Roy. . Head didn't play much, Mike didn't play at all. Seems like you are just grouping all good games into the 5 games streak, so now it is the 7 wins separate from the other games.

    Pacers played very well tonight, probably the best game of the season

    Head was a factor in the win streak.

    Dunleavy was not so good tonight, so he doesn't help your argument.

    You are more stubborn than Jim O'Stubborn.

    Just FYI, when Dwight fouled out he came over to the bench and got a lot of razzing from the fans. He then dropped the DX "suck it" sign on the crowd.

    I'm not weighing in on the credibility or importance of this streak thing one way or another anymore, I think the discussion is just so played out on both sides. However, if memory serves, Rush played quite a bit during those 5 games and Head was a factor off the bench.

    Rush looked real good tonight. I remember people saying that he would be even more useless off the bench. It has seemed to perk him up.


    Watson is a mini-Jack. When I say him try to box out Howard I had to laugh.

    It all comes down to less reliance on a finesse PF and more defense and scrapping. It's a different way to play the game...and tends to produce better defensive efforts. No, we are not going to play well every game...but I think there will be more times we play better.

    Definately the highlight of the season, that or that Boston game. I would say this game was for me, just because of all the adversity this team has faced, especially after losing to the Knicks by 40+ points... to come back and have a win like this is special.

    Seeing them feed Roy in the post was just wonderful to behold, we all knew it would work and that the guy can play. Let's hope Jim keeps the focus on Roy in the upcoming games and maybe we can salvage a bit of this season.

    I think Head has been good as the starting 2. I really like him there.
