I'm sick of the ****ing rollercoaster ride. ****ing sick of it.
Go Knicks and Celtics?
A.J Price lead the team in shot attempts (he hit 4 shots), pretty much sums up how the night went.
In fact, only ONE player on the Pacers hit more than 4 shots tonight. The Kings had 6 players hit more than 4 shots, including their entire starting lineup

Rollar coaster is typical for a young team. Calm down. The Sky isn't falling. They played hard.
We got beat in the post and because we couldn't shoot.
It's okay..it happens. Sacremento is hot right now anyway. They need to collect themselves and get a win tomorrow.
I really don't get this one. Obviously didn't get to see it on TV. I'm at a loss for words.
BUILT, NOT BOUGHT
Pacers Front Office worst move of the season: telling TJ Ford he can go do what he wants while they pay him.... uhhhh why? They could use him!
I can't believe we just got blown out at home to the freakin' Sacramento Kings.
Really an embarrassment for a team that's looking to lock up the 8th spot.
This was probably the most winnable of our final games.
Oh well, better snap out of it tomorrow night and win that winnable game.
Well, it was exciting for about 3 minutes but overall it sucked and everyone sucked. Hopefully it's a young team bump instead of the beginning of falling down the long hill. Time will tell. Not much more to say than that.

Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."
We need to upgrade our backcourt. Again.
J-Rich and Felton...?
NY is down 3 now.
It's quite a stretch to call beating a lousy, depleted Charlotte team
'prosperity'. But I'll do so and say that one of the toughest things
for a young, mediocre at best, team like the Pacers to do is learn
to deal with prosperity.
They obviously mailed this one in tonight. Unfortunately, SAC wasn't
willing to cooperate and roll over.
I read the star this morning and Vogel and every Pacer talked about how important this stretch was, and how they were taking every game serious as a playoff
They had a chance to make a statement tonight
and they did, they are a very weak minded, easily discouraged team
tonight was pathetic , it was more than missed shots, or their bigs. The Kings dont have 18 wins, because their loaded with talent
This was , in my opinion, far worse than the Minnesota game
Sittin on top of the world!
I know why we lost. 35% from field, 16% from outside.
But getting blown out, in indiana, by sacramento? I can't accept it. because this is such a critical game.
Anyway for the game.
Granger probably starts a new shooting slump but overall he played ok... was able to get points from the line and was ok on defense
Rush returned to his slump also, Tyler was off, Price took way too many shots... 1-9 from 3.. come on... Jones had an ok game I guess...

Melo was arguing with Dantoni, should we get him if he gets fired?
One step forward and one step back.
They may have missed everything they threw up. But they were out there fighting and trying. I know these two are the current whipping boys. But knock it off. Neither of them are anywhere close to blame for this loss.
We lost because of our FRONT COURT..Yes, I'm looking at Tyler and Roy. And because our Front court stunk, we got stuck trying to make jump shots..and we weren't making those.
But it's a good lesson. Sac stopped our front court by covering the paint and letting us shoot threes..and we missed them. We've seen this defense..now we've got to figure out how to work around it. (Of course, typically..you need to make a few threes in order to break that sort of offense..)
Now..that's okay. Quite frankly, this is exactly the kind of front court Roy and Tyler struggles against, and Tyler was due for a bad game. It's okay.
I'm just saying. This ain't the whipping boys fault.
