Tyler was only 3-13 from the field.
Tyler was only 3-13 from the field.
My guess was off by 39. Boy, I was flat out wrong on this game.
3 scenarios for the draft, starting with my favorite first:
1. Pacers trade up for Justice Winslow
2. Take WCS or Stanley Johnson (this is the theory of a player falling); Make trades (Hibbert/West/others) for additional picks - George Lucas and Rakeem Christmas are players I'd love to have with a late first/early 2nd round
3. Trey Lyles
I'm sure my opinion will change many times before the draft though.
Have you ever watched a really young team before?
I have. And I've seen much much worse than this.
This wasn't anywhere close to the Minny game. There was effort in this game. There was just a terrible shooting percentage.
It's almost laughable that people expected consistency from this group.

Bucks gonna beat the Knicks again. They deserve the 8th seed. They're battling
The Knicks were better off not getting Melo.
Yea, you're right. The sky is falling. Trade Everyone.
It's not like sub .500 teams lose or anything.
And didn't the Bucks JUST lose to this very same team.
BTW: You know what happened to the most recent really young basketball team that I watched grow up. They won the Big East tournament, 5 games in 5 nights and are in the Final 8 of the NCAA tournament. And trust me...it got much uglier than this.

Was this a home game? Sure as heck didnt seem like it.
PG and Hibbert were the only ones that had decent games I thought. Granger had 20 points but was just 4-13 and Tyler had 8 rebounds and 3 assists ( both tied team game highs ) but was just 3-13. Just was a terrible shooting night for just about everyone.
But I reckon this is a game we can come to expect to happen every now and again with such a young team. It wasnt pretty but gotta put it in rear view and look for the next game ( for both the team and the fans ).
Cousins is a good player but he needs to get his mental side in check. Both he and the Kings had huge games but he still looked like he was about to explode out there.
I am finding , that I am agreeing with Sookie more and more here lately in general ..
It's pretty cool having an woman here on PD, whom has quite a bit of basketball intelligence..
Not alot of women I know watch alot of basketball.. and the ones that do .....well I could NEVER have the type of debate/discussions that we do here on PD..
Just wanted to give ya props Sookie... cause like me... you seem to get alot of ***** on here for your opinions/analysis...
Wow just like the Isiah Thomas Knicks days.
All those MSG boos.
I don't think the sky is falling, but changes definitely need to be made. sub .500 teams lose all the time... that's why they're sub .500
If you're not rebuilding, you should be improving. We have players improving individually, but we're not improving as a team.
I still miss Dunleavy personally. We need a scoring punch in the 2nd unit
Absolutely not. Frontcounrt? The defense was far from perfect but that's not the reason we lost. Hibbert didn't suck, he just didn't get the ball much inside. Tyler sucked, but it's not like he took tough shots, he just took shots he usually makes.
When you keep overshooting the three, it's like a double or nothing. Did AJ try to go inside? Nope. DC? same. DJ sort of tried, Danny as well, but that's about it.
And yes, AJ imo overshot the three, he had wide open looks but it doesn't mean he should take them all. Rush, ok. He's on a slump, and I don't like him much, but I'm fine with him taking these shots. but AJ?
We just lack real scoring options, Granger is really the only one, and if Roy/Tyler/Dc step up we sometimes win... didn't happen here..
this team BLOWS!
the only highlight of the night was that scotty pollard was at the game
the pacers really flip this city and fans off and show how much they hate having big crowds come out to watch them by sucking and losing to ****ty teams

In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!
Holy crap, we need a point guard.
I have a feeling that we are going to win by 20 tomorrow and everybody is going to be happy again, I don't think the sky is falling but like I said before, we need an improvement at point guard and small guard.
I'm saying the Pacers shouldn't have TJ Ford doing what he wants and pay him for it. You wouldn't want to see how he performs compared to AJ Price? Not to mention he is a veteran, which would be nice to have in the playoffs. Why shallow the depth of the team? I think he would be a good option to have; especially if Price's play doesn't improve. Just because he isn't going to be on the team next year doesn't mean you can' t utilize him now.
Bucks win on the road vs. Knicks, Bobcats only down one to Celtics on the road.
Pacers.. blown out at home by the Kings. Love this team, but we don't deserve the playoffs
Just cant happen.
This team just has real high highs and real low lows.
