    MT... You mean that JOB's starting lineup will actually be Ford, Watson, Rush, DJones, and Murphy? At least that will be the lineup that gets the bulk of the minutes.

    I think it would be better to start Rush at SF, actually. He has more size than Dahntay and he has played really well at that position in Danny's absence in the past.

    Dahntay is starting so it looks to be Watson, Dahntay, Rush, Murphy, Hibbert.

    I expect to see a lot of Dunleavy and Luther Head tonight.

    That or Watson and Price on the floor at the same time.

    Ha, what's the over/under on Watson playing 40+ minutes tonight? I say over

    There are other players I hate more than Troy Murphy, but that is because they are A-Holes. As fas as just basketball goes, I think he is #1 on my all time player hating list.

    There's been 2 wide open dunks because of him. And the rebound vulture showed it's feathers, fighting with DJones to get the board. Of course, Lebron ends up with it. I don't really want the pacers to win, but gawwwd... I hate watching Troy play basketball.

    Rush played really good D on Parker trying to get to the basket...too bad we can't get a rebound.

    Yes, I am well aware of what that site says. I pointed it out myself in a thread about 6 months ago. Another poster suggested I use my eyes on the players instead of on the official stats, particularly since we have all heard of circumstances where they've been inflated or rounded down because players don't want to be called centers or want seem like a better fit for a position or whatever.

    I took his advice and lo and behold, saw that there was a noticeable size difference. Watch for the next time they are close to each other on the court and it is clear that Brandon is about an inch taller than Dahntay and he also looks bigger around too. After looking at them closely, I'd believe that Dahntay is 6'6 in shoes while Brandon is 6-6 without shoes.

    You are absolutely right, he IS bigger than Dahntay. I don't care what they are listed at, we know how accurate those things are right? Brandon has much more upper body strength, the dude has a barrel chest. He would be the obvious guy to put on Lebron, but then again... Maybe they want to conserve Rush's energy for the 1st half so he can score?

    Defense first is not Jim's motto. I think his motto is Defense third.

    Yes, and the times that Brandon has been on LBJ during past games it's been clear to me that he's the best option we have. I am not sure why Dahntay is the default defender for LeBron...maybe because there is still the perception that he is our defensive "stopper" - it's what he was brought here to do, after all.

    Why hasn't McRoberts been in? I assume Price hasn't played either.

    LeBron could just sit the rest of the game and the Cavs would still win by 20.

    Yea, for about 3 minutes.

    McBob has 2 fouls though.

    Apparently Jimmy is back to "Let's kill Earl" Because that makes so much sense..and we wonder why the poor guy has been struggling a bit with turnovers and defense..playing a "grandpa" 40 minutes a game, is in general..not smart.

    Murph battling with other Pacers for rebounds more than usual tonight...that's the third time we've lost the ball because Murph and one of our other guys (usually Rush or Dahntay) are both going for it.
