Need to see a significant, impassioned response at the Cs Fri. Otherwise, all the discussion of a high finish in the EC will be exposed as way premature. We have to consider our play against the quality of opponent thought the first five.
I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees.
I have to agree here they totally lost their cool in the 2nd, they let the refs take them out of the game with bad calls. Its one thing to play angry, usually you get a postive effect, but this was just playing with frustration and hopelessness.
They got hit by a perfect storm though...best team in the league, bad officiating, bad shooting.
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
I wish you didn't post that gif I just did that a few hours ago literally....
I missed the game but apparently I didn't miss much.. Heard LeBron got hurt
Paul George blocked his shot, so he had to cry for about 5 minutes. jk(he stepped on Paul's foot, but seemed fine and didn't miss any playing time.)
edit: I think Nike is trying to confiscate the espn footage.
Hopefully this will be the worst game the Pacers play this year... Sometimes it's a lot easier to watch other teams play cause when they get beat this badly, I just sit back and enjoy their embarrassment. But when it's the Pacers getting schooled, it really hurts..
Meh. Just one game. Show up against Boston and you're 5-2. I don't care how you get there, I'll take 5-2 in every 7 game stretch every time.
Its gonna be really telling how this team responds to a loss like that, they need to show up in a big way against Boston. Otherwise....
"As a bearded man, i was very disappointed in Love. I am gathering other bearded men to discuss the status of Kevin Love's beard. I am motioning that it must be shaved."
I really hope that someone in the post-game conference said that they were p*ssed at the way the ENTIRE Team performed in this game. I can accept that a Team performs badly from time to time....but someone needs to light a fire under their collective @sses for shooting and playing so poorly. It's about how a Team responds to a loss like this that defines the Team....not one loss against a really good Team.

Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
I like how people say "is just one game" I'm sorry but it has been more than one game, does anybody here remember Detroit? we have been playing like the only difference is that this time we finally got to play againts a real team.
The fact is we haven't played well this season. I think we can all agree on that. There are plenty of excuses to make, and plenty of blame to go around. Miami killed us tonight, they are a great team. Is it time to start to go into panic mode? No, I don't think so. If this had happened against some crappy team, then we could be worried. But it was the Heat, in Miami, and in the NBA games like this happen. Let's see how they respond in Boston. If they get served another sound beatdown, then we start to worry a little more.
I'm a Danny fan, but he is having a hell of a time getting quality shots the way he is used to. The dude looks like he has forgot how to play. Too many forearm shimmies and bull dozing his way into the lane. I can call an offensive foul on him almost every time he drives. Just like I can call it when DJones wants to try and go in and dunk the ball.
Apparently Granger benefits greatly from a real training camp, cause his game does not look very polished.

[QUOTE=BlueNGold;1337537]I'm not even worried. This isn't the same team you will see later this season. It just isn't. I'm not one to put blinders on either. We have more talent on this team than we've had in years. Granger, who was supposedly an all-star scored 6 points on 2-13 or something. It was a bad game and bad games happen. Granger, as bad as he is, isn't that bad...[/QUOTE
FG5 Stats seem to indicate a downward trend. Dosn't really give me hope that he is going to miraculously turn it around any time soon.
edit: I also like to think is funny for you and other people to be the "freakout police" "if they get served another sound beatdown then we start to worry a little" a OK thanks for letting us know when to do it

Detroit didn't blow us out. We lost. This is the NBA, not college. The talent levels are not so drastically different that it's a shock that any team should lose to any other. Especially a division rival, on their home court, when the players were working on probably about 4 hours of sleep.
I'll continue to be the freakout police when you are leading the charge in freaking out after every loss on the schedule. Someone has to balance things out.
I only hope for better game days for the Pacers!
