    Tebow is just behind justin bieber on my least favorite people list, so no thanks.
    Tebow and Bieber are two people I would never lump together. Tebow had one of the alltime great college careers for a QB. Justin Bieber has famous hair.
    As someone posted earlier I was hoping that Tyler or Lou would dive for a loose ball in his general direction.

    I think we all saw it - you can't not notice that damn thing. It made me dizzy when people stepped on it and my brain was forced to accept the fact that it was flat.
    haha, every time someone ran out underneath the basket I was like " oh *****, they are gonna trip over that sign!"

    coincidentally I was watching rugby recently when I noticed ads on the field like these:



    witch are painted in such a way that it appears perpendicular to the camera, almost like an overlay-ed graphic.

    The technique is called 3D Branding apparently.

    I don't know why they couldn't just print "Raptors" normally on the baseline wood.

    I saw it in the preseason game when they played the Celtics and thought it was real at first or at least temporary.

    And David West's leadership and understanding of the game. The clutch shot he hit was more than just a clutch shot. He made that play. From the second they crossed halfcourt, West was yelling and throwing his arms around to get Paul George to clear that side. Then he sets the screen, drops into the open space, and nails the dagger. Without West's leadership on the court, that play doesn't happen and who knows if we still win this one.

    Even though Toronto made a good run, there was just a sense of confidence that this team would win. Last year, with about 3 minutes left and the Raptors making a run, we all knew it would be a Pacers loss. Tonight, it just felt like they knew how to win this game.
    I really agree. In the 2 games West has felt like a clear difference making presence even when he hasn't hit shots. He understands his role and seems to be guiding everyone else into theirs as something of the anchor point.

    I also think Collison looks more comfortable with him on the court.


    The ONLY reason the Raps made it close was the insanely hot and out of character shooting by DeRozen in the 4th. Go look at his shot chart by the quarters, it's just stupid. And he wasn't hitting many uncontested shots.

    I normally hate the "they are just making tough shots" defense, but DeRozen was and that was the only reason they got so close.



    Loved every aspect of it except DJones, though I admit he threw down a nasty dunk on softy Bargs.


    Only problem the Pacers seemed to have was getting Collison clear on the PnR hedges in the 4th. The Raptors were able to drive him way off the pick point which ruined any shot at a return pass and they never seemed to adjust to it.

    Vogel needs to address that issue and have things ready to adjust if it happens again. DC was playing well so it's not like he was doing anything wrong, the Raps just saw a way to stop his impact off of that play.



    I'm standing firm by the "George is the best player" view from that "who is #3 thread". But OTOH the team has great balance, I really like the structure that having DC, Hill and West instead of Ford, Troy and Dun brings.


    It is early ball and shooting and play are crap around the league, but I think the Pacers rotations and team defense look way above normal. It's not just George and DC, it's the awareness and rotations. Not too many team breakdowns going on.The Pacers aren't better than the Bulls, but we know how close they can run with them. Playoffs and 2nd in the division go without saying as expectations, not hopes.



    I also think the gritty road win with big shots down the stretch was just what the doctor ordered to get this team gelling quicker than normal. All teams with changes are chasing chemistry as much as conditioning and every chance to bond and develop trust is a huge advantage for the team.

    I think that's on DC. He's got to attack the outside hip of the defender hedging. He needs to take a couple plays out of the other elite PGs playbooks, and create contact early in the game and flail his arms to get the foul call. Make the refs call the contact early on to soften it up in the 4th.

    The Pacers rarely get that type of foul call for them, but often times get it called on them.

    Add me to the list too. Really the list should be who DIDN'T get a minor aneurysm trying to accept that weird visual. I felt like Cpt Kirk was overloading the logic in my brain.

    Then I had another beer and stopped worrying about it.


    Good info on the rugby version.


    BTW, downtown Indy did a bunch of art for the SuperBowl and one of them is a 3D trick that shows a guy on a ladder putting up "wallpaper" on the side of a building just north of Conseco. It's just north of Penn and Virginia and looks 3D as you walk north towards it.

    That's right. Maglore scored a whopping zero points. Time to teach the double-double machine a lesson. I'm glad Roy has a little fire in his belly.


    I'd love this to light a fire under Hibbert's backside! He needs to show some tuffness. Maybe there is some hope.

    And to think Magloire was an Allstar once upon a time.

    Every time David West like, fell out/ran out of bounds my thought process was "OMG DAVID WATCH OUT YOUR GONNA LAND FUNNY AND HURT YOUR KN-- oh yea, it's fake"

    Because the raptors have to give the people something to talk about.

    He was only an All Star because he played center. He wasn't great then either. Just an above average center in a watered down Eastern Conference.

    I'm sure someone has said this already, but DC's transition defense was fan-stinkin-tastic last night.

    Looks as though Roy has been looking at old Patrick Ewing film on how to get into the lane, and getting away with it.
    Ha, man I know. I felt guilty on at least one move. But then I thought "F them, it happens to us too".

    I prefer clean, quality ball but the game is the rules and the rules are what the refs allow.

    Raptors reminded me of how we were under Obie; i.e. looking good when players had a hot shooting night. In the first half it was Bargs, in the second half it was Derozan. I'm just glad we play a different style now.
    I totally agree. The shots DD was being forced to take weren't high quality and he was still hitting them. But his first 3 quarters were a disaster. So suddenly the offense is better? No, he just got hot.

    That's how you get a roller coaster effect where the team seemingly plays bad or good from game to game or quarter to quarter. Was the Dunleavy 3rd quarter of the Denver game signs that the offense was clicking suddenly? Nope. Nothing got better after that night, it wasn't even the beginning of a Dunleavy hot streak.

    Did anyone else notice that "Raptors" wording underneath the baskets? At first I thought at was really a sign and was confused as to why they would put them there.
    Yeah, I didn't figure out until about the third quarter that it was just a funky paint job...

    The double tech on Hans and Magloire was a joke. He definitely added some extra when he "fell" on
    Tyler.

    I dont see how Tyler could have been called for anything.. he jumped up and grabbed the ball and Magloire tackled him.

    Yeah, I saw Tyler jump in and grab the ball clean without touching Magloire, then got an elbow in the face from Magloire and fell down with Magloire landing on him. definitely a mystery.

    Denari was just on JMV talking about how he saw Bieber talking to a ref and joked about how the ref was more interested in talking to Bieber than working the game......

    Ref was probably just trying to get tickets for his daughter or niece. That's got to be easier than trying to get Lady Gaga tickets from Dane Cook.
