"Larry Bird: You are Officially On the Clock! (3/24/08)"
(Watching You Like A Hawk!)
I know what literal means..lol
In a nutshell, I used it in such a way as to introduce humor into the description ..
Just like I could have said Diaw sang soprano , or Diaw got kicked so hard, they "literally" gonna have to remove them from his stomach....
I mean , damn no crap? ...lol
I didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday ..
ease up off me now...
I wonder if Seth is happy with how his hero played tonight . Still being a thug ( Gerald Henderson ).
Henderson and DJ did whatever they wanted in the first half. Their penetration killed us and lead to easy offense. George couldnt keep Henderson out of the paint. But in the 2nd our perimeter defense really improved and the penetration was really limited. Also the effort in general was just a lot better in the 2nd.
Boris Diaw had one of the worst individual performances I've seen this season. Terrible shot selection, bad defense, etc.; it was all bad.
Wow the post game threads are awfully short when the Pacers win....
Granger at 33% FG tonight, but again made alot of great plays on D and made good decisions on the other end. Only had 1-2 questionable shots. I actually think he had a couple of shots that he passed up. I loved seeing him down in the post. 50% from the post this game, only 2 shots attempted though, but both were good looks after backing his man down.

You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
Hopefully Roy can go against Philly.
AJ should be the backup PG, Tyler and George Hill look much better with him than with Lance, but looks like that's not gonna happen which is ********, whatever, not gonna let it bring me down til it costs us.
Loved seeing Hill punk out Henderson in the second half. That's what a champion does.
on AJ vs Lance.
AJ is a better team defender, but Lance is a much more gifted offensive player. Things do feel more steady with AJ out there, but things will settle down with Lance once he gets more playing time. You gotta play the kid now and maybe by the time the post season comes he will be fitting in well. It's not like the team is living or dying by either AJ or Lance getting 10 minutes of action.
On Philly. They are playing some of the best basketball in the league right now. They blew out Toronto by 35 tonight. I think the Pacers are gonna lose that game. I just hope the Pacers play hard and don't have a game like they did vs Miami.
I really think we are watching the evolution of something special.
I would however, like to see Frank reign in D. Jones a bit, and I'm not a fan of most of our technical fouls. Sometimes they are useful, but often they are just a result of a lack of discipline that can end up costing a team in the end.
I think he fits the identity of the team great, and I don't mean the no passing identity... I mean the hard-nosed, physical style of play.

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!
UB and Rock747 already said something about it, but I have to bring it up again.
Croshere did a fantastic job! He's not Clark...yet, but he is much better than anyone else we've had as a color commentator. I really like him doing that job. I hope he gets the gig permanently.
