    Well, it seems as if Philly is going to be tired tomorrow for our game against them. They are either bloodthirsty for a win or they are emotionally drained. I hope for the latter.

    I think it is impressive that John Wall had such a nice stat line on Jrue Holiday, an absolute pest on defense.

    Kuster benched rodney stuckey for the 2nd half today in another loss. He wasn't even playing poorly. He's been our best player this season. He obviously said or did something that pissed him off, because we don;t even have a backup PG right now. TMac and Tayshaun played point the rest of the game.

    ...so now he's lost Tayshaun's support, Stuckey's feuding with him, and TMac was seen staring him down in the 4th quarter when he refused to make any adjustments (yet again) during another stretch where we turned a 5-point lead into a 9-point loss in a span of about 6 minutes.

    Eric Bledsoe looking good tonight for the Clippers. Baron Davis should show up out of shape more often.

    Yeah the Clippers are a fun team to watch, even if they aren't any good. Gordon, Griffin, Bledsoe...some nice pieces there.

    Mike Conley looking good again tonight. Maybe he plays up to that contract?

    Kobe carving these young Kings apart. Cousins needs some work. I have no idea why he's taking three pointers. Not his game, and it doesn't ever need to be.

    Maybe Kstat can shed some more light into this...but isn't Ben Wallace a little over the hill now? The Pistons are horrible, and are going to continue to be horrible. Why not let Monroe get some starts under his belt?

    Troy Murphy played 18 pretty uneventful minutes tonight. 2 pts, 2 rbs, a team worst -17. Uhhh...he's hurt?

    Outside of Kevin Love and mayyybe Wesley Johnson, there isn't a single player on the Timberwolves worth two scoops of rhino crap. Just an awful team.

    Can't believe the Rockets are 0-4, and I can't believe the Hornets are 4-0.

    Some fella named Gary Forbes (?) started tonight for the Nuggets. Carmelo's *****ing is going to pick up soon.

    Yeah he has been really good since playing with Team USA this summer. I think Baron actually holds him back. Take it for what it's worth, but Simmons says that Baron would freeze EJ out of the offense at times the past couple seasons.

    If I were the Clips I would do what you said earlier: try and trade Baron and Kaman. Kaman may have some value, but I think they are pretty much stuck with Baron.

    There's no reason why Monroe and Ben Wallace can't both play. CV needs to have his minutes cut down.

    I'm happy with Monroe playing 25+ minutes a game. He's adjusting to the speed of the game, but I really like his IQ.

    BTW, an update, the Pistons are in full mutiny after 5 games. Saturday, Ben Gordon openly questioned why Kuester never makes any adjustments in the 2nd half. Tuesday, Tayshaun Prince, who never says anything, shot back at Kuester when he questioned the team leadership, saying "that's not the only thing we're lacking."

    Tonight's incident? Rondey Stuckey blatantly ignored John Kuester's multiple attempts to get his attention during a game, and he responded for benching him for the entire 2nd half. Since Stuckey was the only healthy PG on the team, Tayshaun Prince and TMac split duties, which played a pretty big role in us going 0-5 for the first time in my lifetime.

    After all that, TMac was seen staring down kuester as yet another team made an adjustment, went on a big 4th quarter run to erase a Pistons lead, and Kuester did absolutely nothing to stop it.

    Suffice it to say, Kuester will be gone ASAP, and Rodney Stuckey might be right behind him. I don't like Kuester either, but you can't allow a player to undermine a coach like that. I could see a suspension coming, at the minimum.

    On the bright side? Greg Monroe is finally playing. He's out of position at C, but at least he's playing.

    thats the truth i have been following the clipps since EJ has been there. baron hasnt been good since he got to LA. He is a shoot first point guard who has been the worst shooter in the NBA the last 2 yrs at 38%. Im in his moms class right now she is my teacher. she says that he doesnt like how many plays vinney calls for Kaman and baron. He would like blake to get more plays for him and also ssome more plays for himself.

    Yeah...but they're playing against 2 elite Teams in back to back games. It's probably safe to say that if it was the Pacers that played the Magic and Heat in back to back games that we'd probably do as bad.

    BDiddy has only showed up in shape one season, the summer of 2007...the season before he decided to go into Free Agency. The next time he will show up in shape will be in the summer of 2012...this is his next contract year. This is reason #1834318 why I do not ever want to see BDiddy in a Pacer uniform ( right, dc? )

    Is the problem with the Coach or the Players? I always got the sense that Tayshaun and Stuckey were "good Soldiers" and that an incident like this seems very unlike them.

    I'm not trying to "rub salt into the wound" ( since we...as Pacer fans...have obvious issues with our Coach ), it just seems that something else is going on with the Pistons that non-Piston fans aren't aware of.

    I don't know. I'm sure we would lose, but they were out of those games by the second quarter. I know we just stunk up the yard against the lowly Sixers, but I think that was an aberration. I can't imagine us losing two straight games, regardless of the competition, by 30+ points.
