    Nice way of taking care of business and beat the crappy team the Pistons are, MVP of the game for Mcbob.

    Great effort by the team! Got sloppy at the end, but that second and third quarter run was just fun to watch...

    Good W but I'm kinda surprised it ended this close. But that's a W.
    Josh and DC had an outstanding game. I just hope DC keeps playing like this and not regress like he did earlier in the season. I also think AJ and Foster were both great off the bench.
    Glad Roy didn't get seriously injured, he didn't fall really well.
    And looks like March is finally over, and hopefully Granger's horrible slump ends with it. 18.9 ppg, 37% from the field, 34% from 3... If you've watched this game you have probably seen it as well, he missed jumpers, airballed a wideeeeee open three... We can't have him like this in the playoffs

    Started to look a little ugly in the 4th, but a win is a win. Good to see JMac have a good game.

    His outside shot still leaves much to be desired, but I thought PG played better tonight than he has in recent games.

    I loved this game. It looked like everyone was giving effort out there (at least until the 4Q run by the Pistons), so that was nice. Josh McRoberts picked up a career-high 13 rebounds with 15 points, which was great. Would have been nice to see him pick up 6 more points for a career high there, too, but no greed necessary.

    Josh had a couple dunks, one of them a sweet putback, and I heard Paul had a "sick alley-oop", so I'm hoping to find footage of any and all of them to post.

    And despite all of my aforementioned hatred for Mike Dunleavy, it was actually nice to see him back on the court, until he started bricking shots in the second half. But his movement is incredibly encouraging, and his moderate veteranship is worth having.

    I'm really excited for the playoffs this year, guys. We could actually do well.

    *Awaits for half of Pacers Digest to get on and blame the 4th quarter on Darren Collison, even though he sat on the bench*

    Great game by McRoberts! PG looked real good as well. Collison seemed like he was on mission. Nice win.

    Some interesting stats of the night:

    - Danny had a little subpar shooting tonight, but he has been active in getting steals. 4 steals tonight. I've seen him use his length recently to get steals. Hopefully he can continue this.

    - Tyler had recently been on an offensive slump. But lately he's starting to pass more to get assists. A little improvced offensive awareness perhaps?

    - DC carried the team offensively, which is a good sign that he's getting his shots on the past 2 games. Although a little wierd that he only got 3 assists. If he's getting his shots I guess we can take that his assists usually drop.

    - JMac has a back-to-back good games. Co-best player of the game together with DC. 15 points, 13 rebounds. Nice. Hopefully he'll be scoring well off the bench on a consistent basis (it's been the problem of the bench as of late).

    Really wish the Bobcats would have lost tonight. Friday is super important! We play the Bucks, and the Bobcats play at Orlando.

    A win puts us up 4 on the Bucks with 5 to play and we have the tiebreaker. A win and loss by the Bobcats puts us up 2 on them with 5 to play and a tiebreaker over them as well.

    A loss and Bucks are only down 2 with the tiebreaker over us. Bobcats win and we're tied... with tiebreaker, loss and Bobcats loss and still up a game.

    Hmm... really? My calculations are that a Pacers win Friday puts Milwaukee out of the race. Let me go check.

    EDIT: Whoops. I somehow thought that they only had six games left. With 8, their magic number is 5. But a win Friday is still worth 3 magic number points.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    McRoberts creates space -wish they would let him take his man off the dribble more often.

    Tyler has skills and he will improve, but McBob has a higher upside. Some of that upside differnece is due to skill set -McBob also has some age on his side. I know that McBob is probably gone this summer, but i really do beleive he could be the better player down the road.

    Fun game to attend tonight. Great to see Josh do well. He seemed to instinctively be in the right place at the right time tonight, moving around very well.

    I'm also glad to see TJ still with the team. Did I miss something? I thought the Pacers had let him go home.

    The team never let him go. TJ just doesn't travel with the team.

    Teams are never actually tied in the standings unless they have the exact same record. (I.E., having played the same amount of games) The games behind column isn't what you look at at this time of year, the lost column is. If Charlotte wins and we lose we will at that point have one more loss than Charlotte with four to play.

    Record if we lose and Charlotte and Milwaukee both win Friday.
    TEAM...........RECORD...GB
    Charlotte......33-42......--.....with 7 to play
    Indiana.........34-43.....--......with 5 to play.
    Milwaukee.....31-44.....2.......with 7 to play


    If the above happens then we will have put ourselves in the position of someone else having to beat Charlotte for us. If they win those extra two games, that puts us a game behind them, and if it stays that way . . . we're in the lottery.

    The tiebeaker is only good if we have the same record.

    When you are under .500, wins are more statistically significant than losses, and we have more wins than Charlotte. It is true that if they go undefeated, they will pass us, but that doesn't worry me. We have a sample of 75 games to tell us that Charlotte tends to lose more than they win.

    Those 75 games? Were they all played with the knowledge that the season is on the line?

    And Charlotte doesn't have to go undefeated to pass us. If they win Friday and we lose, after that all they have to do is win the extra two games to pass us. After that all they have to do is match whatever we do.

    The point I've been striving to make is we don't want to fall behind in the loss column. Then we need help!

    Probably Josh's best game in his career.

    He was all over the boards and boxing out.

    Good all around team game tonight. Lets keep that going.

    Mike's offensive game was definitely missed.

    We must play our absolute best Friday night. Luckily, the Bobcats have the Magic who have done pretty well.

    It was great to see DC playing with purpose.

    Josh played amazing.

    I haven't been a Mike D fan in the past, but I am now. We really missed him and the second he entered the game the offense ran so much better.

    Probably Josh's best game in his career.
    My problem with this is that it tells me quite a bit why people underrate Josh. Short term memory.

    How about 14/12/2 with 2 blocks and 1 steal on 7-15 shooting vs the Wiz.

    Oh, about how about the irrelevent game vs the Lakers
    15/4/1 with 2 steals on 7 of 12 shooting

    18/12/1 with a block and 2 steals on 8 of 9 vs Houston


    I've got him at 8 five assist games this year, with a 6 and a 7 night in that list.

    The Boston game a few weeks ago he was 14/11/3 with 1 block on 6 of 10

    Win vs Chicago 20/8/0 with 2 blocks and 1 assist on 8 of 11 and all anyone noticed was him getting dunked on, which was not too bad IMO since he actually challenged the shot rather than hiding like a punk.

    12/9/7 vs Charlotte gets him in range of a triple double.

    He was 15/12/3 with 2 steals on 7 of 8 @ DETROIT in mid FEB. So the same kind of night against the same team.


    But tonight he really showed something or maybe had his best game yet or a breakout game or whatever.

    Sheesh. There is a reason I have a chip about this, it's getting old having people keep rediscovering the Josh is a pretty solid NBA player and capable of impacting games in a multitude of ways.

    He doesn't have huge stats and doesn't typically walk away with double digit rebounds. But most nights you are at least going to get the assists or the rebounds or some points or a few blocks or steals. It's rare that he leaves the team empty.

    You run him out for 20-30 minutes and you are going to be glad you did most nights.

    I don't underrate Josh.

    As far as rebounding/being active on the boards, this was his best game.

    Yes he tied his career high of 12 boards, but 7 of them were offensive.

    He's a hard working player who's solid and makes a strong presense every time he's out there whether he's scoring/rebounding or not, he's always out there bringing his energy.

    It's also good to have him always stepping up if Tyler is having an off game like tonight.

    I would like for Josh to remain here, but going back to that deadline deal, I'd still like for us to go after Mayo.
