    I can see the slow part, but not tall? I think he is at least a legit 6'10".

    Guys as short as 6'5" can post up Murph...who is listed at 6'11", not 6'10". Anyway, I'm just glad his contract is one day shorter than yesterday.

    This game was the most impressive win of the year IMO. I actually started watching games again since TJ is out. The team looks different in a good way. If TJ returns and starts getting minutes again, I intend to change the channel again.

    ...but as good as this game looked, a much more impressive showing will be if they can get more of these types of wins next year during the first half of the season...when it might actually count toward a playoff run.

    BTW, we are 14-12 without TJ...6-2 the last 8....and we just completed our second 5 game winning streak of the season with a victory over a strong opponent...with McBob getting big minutes and +14 on the plus-minus. Murphy negative 3 on plus-minus (of course). TJ not on the floor. Just another day at the office.....

    Coaching would be easy for JOb if he'd just listen to most of the people on this board.

    Regarding the wish for the Pacers to lose in order to have a high pick, I'm at the point where my thought is: "Damage done."

    That ship (picking top 4/5) has sailed, so I don't really care one way or another now.

    Regardless, wins like last night I'll take any time. That was a blast to watch.

    Great win! The lottery is a crap shoot. With our traditional luck, there was no way we were getting into the top 4 anyway. I don't see how winning games against very talented play-off teams is "meaningless." The younger players are getting burn and experience as well. I am sure winning begets chemistry which, in turn, begets wins. Go Pacers!

    Funny how all of a sudden after an impressive win over a solid playoff team, everyone seems to be coming out of the woodwork in support of the team playing well to close out the season. Where are all of the "tank advocates" now?
    I have been a 'tanking' advocate and I really enjoyed the win last night. Why? Because that was the best basketball I have seen the Pacers play ALL SEASON.

    O'Brien will be back next season, and this win surge has nothing to do with it.

    Hey, Obie, was this one of those "irrelevant" wins?
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Yes. It has all to do with $. They are not going to pay another coach to come in yet when they have to pay JOb.

    JOb's tenure with the Pacers depends on the first half of next season.

    ROFL, nice one!

    What would have been great is if someone in the crowd had put up sign saying that where Jimmy and Bird would have seen it.

    For Jimmy's sake, it best not be like the 1st 60 plus games of this season, for if it is it sure won't look good on his future resume after being shown the door.

    Give the man credit, his teams play really well when they are out of playoff contention and the wins don't count for anything!

    This team is just a bruiser/athletic PF and a PG with leadership skills away from a great playoff team.

    Yawn, at this stage of the season just another useless win. Yawn.




    Justin
    , you’re complaining
    Over threes that Danny’s draining,
    Pain pierces, sharp as splinter,
    When Roy dominates at center,
    And, though other fans make merry
    When we beat an adversary
    You’re persistently contrary
    And of winning wary, very!
    Ah! as the winning games continue
    Can you ever find it in you?
    To admit we weren’t demented
    When we said we were contented?
    Or will you persist in yawning?
    Will it never start to dawning
    That you and the doomsayers
    Were wrong about our players?
    That, when Brandon, Roy and AJ
    Launch a scorching, scoring heyday
    Or when twelfth man, namely, Josh
    Shows professional panache!
    Or when even Earl’s assisting,
    Finds you ever, still persisting
    In insisting that its tragic
    When the Pacers score like magic?
    As the season grown yet older
    You come to such sights ever colder
    And while we are all delighted
    Our joy, in you, is unrequited
    It’s the Pacers we are strong for,
    But it’s the lottery you long for.

    Question.

    If the darksider vote comes up, can I vote for a person I ignored? Will that choice not exist.

    Darksider
    A. Pessimistic poster
    B. Bemoaning Baffler
    D. Just let it go demoter.

    Or will I see the name and be allowed to vote?

    Ahh who am I kidding we all know who will when and he is not on my ignore list.

    Is this true?

    I would rather have said Murphy is the epitome of good fundamentals combined with very limited speed and strength..
    I have not, in the 3+ years he has been a Pacer, ever seen him block out. Not once. And what about help defense? Is he the worst ever?

    And it just so happens that both of those will be available in the Top 4 picks of the draft...
