Simply put though Roy wasn't getting it done offensively in the fourth quarter after the pacers went to him late and coming out of a couple of timeouts at the very least it was time to give the bal to someone else. he shot 4 of 13, which is horrible for a post player.
Not going to say much nor single out anyone in particular that stood out for the better or worst......we just aren't that good of a Team now.
Unfortunately, it's so bad for me ( and I'd guess many of you ) that I don't really care if they win or lose. I don't want the Team to intentionally lose games so that we tank.....I want the Team to always put their all into winning while being as competitive as can be...but at the same time, I'm not going to say that I don't mind that the Pacers lose games since losing games improves our chances in the lottery.
One more thing, are we so numb to losing games that we don't care about creating a Post-Game thread now?

It was a good night. We lost while Philly, Detroit and Sacramento won.
John Wall, baby.
If we stay focused we have a legit shot at finishing with the 2nd worst record in the league this year.

I've been down on Dunleavy all year but he did have one bright spot that I remember. Towards the end of third quarter, after a Bulls made basket, he seemed to look right at TJ, and then instead of passing it to him, inbounded the ball right to I believe it was D Jones... This was after TJ had shot the ball the previous 5 possessions in a row.
Dun was horrible. Maybe he's still hurting, but he sure isn't the same guy he was a couple years ago. The Bulls got away with playing a guy 6 inches shorter on some possessions. Blech.
I can deal with Roy's growing pains. He was barely missing on several shots, and this is a fine time to just let him get a better touch down low.
Rush is MIA on offense, and it wasn't because of missed shots. He's really frustating to watch on that end.
Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.
- Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
- Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
- Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.
Enjoy your time at PD!
Also, playwise, I think Dunleavy has become a complete liability at both ends this year.
I'd rather give these minutes to anyone else at this point, honestly.
Dunleavy clearly doesn't want to play with him either. He quite often gets visibly frustrated with him. But to be honest, he (Dun) doesn't deserve the minutes. And it wouldn't be that bad to give TJ Dun's minutes.
