    Default Game thread 13: Pacers @ Kings 1/18/2012

    Dethrone the Kings!


    Game time: 10:00PM EST


    TV: FSN-Indiana

    STARTERS:

    For your INDIANA PACERS



    And for the Sacramento Kings



    SEASON RECORDS
    9-3 (4-3 Away)
    4-10 (3-3 Home)

    INJURY REPORT
    The Pacers are healthy. The Kings are too (at least physically, mentally is up for debate)

    And now for our sponsored section of the game thread brought to you by Jack Link's Beef Jerky...


    THE MESSIN' WITH SASQUATCH KEYS TO THE GAME



    3 is the magic number. The Pacers are on a 3 game win streak and the Kings are on a 3 game losing streak.

    The Kings are, statistically speaking, one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the NBA. They are terrible at just about everything. They are one of only 3 teams allowing over 100 PPG. They are one of only 3 teams that are averaging a margin of defeat in the double digits. They are just flat out bad. About the only thing they've been OK at, is rebounding, and the Pacers are better there. The Pacers are actually better at just about everything, yes even assists where the Pacers rank 28th in the NBA at 17.7. per game. The Kings are one of only 2 teams that average less assists per game than the Pacers and the Kings average a miserable and I mean truly miserable 14.6 assists per game, good for worst in the entire NBA.

    It's also a good night for the Pacers to get off their offensive snide. The Kings have been maybe the worst defensive team in the NBA this season, and if you're the Pacers and you combine that with lots of time off and plenty of practice, I think we should see a good offensive showing tonight.

    Thanks for getting this up early. I see no reason why we can't blow this team out.

    I hope the Pacers will not get complacent on this game given that the Kings are really one of the worst, if not the worst, teams in the NBA right now. A loss in this game will drive this forum crazy.

    Anyone else notice how 3 out of the starting 5 for the Kings have these greasy smirks on their faces, and look a bit high?

    We should win this game. Kings are just so dysfunctional.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Thanks Trader! Is there any way you can use alt tags to insert the opposing players names, that way we can hover over the player and it will display their name? I find myself having to go lookup who some of these guys are just about every game. If not, that's okay. Keep up the good work!

    I'm interested to see the Hibbert vs. Cousins matchup...Hibbert should be able to take him down.

    Also..... JIMMER!

    I was just thinking they all looked a little odd or creepy.

    I am looking for Granger to shut down Salmons. Salmons is a good scorer and has always seemed to play well against us. This is the type of game that good teams maintain focus and put away by executing and not "playing down" to the competition. This will fall on Granger's shoulders to lead our defensive effort by shutting down Salmons. If you are reading this Danny, which I know you aren't, I am challenging you to keep Salmons below ten points. Win your matchup tonight and set the bar for the rest of the team.

    I have a feeling this Hibbert/Cousins matchup could get ugly. It will probably be dirty and physical. I look for Hibbert to hold his own and go bucket for bucket and block for block with this kid. I want to see Hibbert frustrate the p*ss out of this kid. His biggest weakness is mental and if you get in his head, he will explode.

    Tyreke might pass twice tonight. Maybe three times if our defense is good enough. I would like to see us pressure him once he gets across half court. Make him make decent passes. He struggles because he holds the ball too long, but he is so strong and capable of finishing that he makes it hard to double him. I think I would prefer to see George on Tyreke and Collison on Thornton and/or Jimmer. Let George pressure him and Collison play the passing lanes off the ball.

    We need West to get his and take advantage of their weak front court outside of Cousins.

    Salmons is averaging less than 8 points per game. I'm not sure stopping him is a major key.

    Salmons is done he has looked old the past 2 season. Reke and Marcus are the 2 with Cousins you have to force into bad shots. Especially Reke you cant let him get into the paint.

    I wonder how long would it take Tyler to get under Cousins skin? he is going to get at least a tech for complaining to the refs.

    I wonder how long it will take @RobLowe to break the "Foster is actually retiring, not having a back procedure" story.

    The Pacers better watch it.

    This team actually has talent, the players are just all crazy. But they could come out well. (I doubt they will though, I have a feeling this is a team that's going to beat a few of the top teams because they'll come out wanting to play well..but because their chemistry sucks so bad and they lack chemistry and any form of IQ, it won't be very often. Indiana, luckily, is not going to be thought of as one of those top teams.)

    If it's your first NBA game ever, splurge.

    You'll be amazed at the size and speed of it all.

    I like the Kings quite a bit (mainly due to Jimmer and Hayes) but they are in quite a bad shape. And, of course, I prefer the Pacers in any given time. Let's watch a nice game and I hope we can pull out the road W
