THE MESSIN' WITH SASQUATCH KEYS TO THE GAME
Another road game, another bad defensive team, through the first 3 quarters against Sacto it looked as if the Pacers had figured out their offensive woes, alas the Pacers turned the ball over more than they scored in the 4th and went away with the L. Frank's message to the team tonight should be quite simple, 48, as in the number of minutes in an NBA game.
Resist the temptation to be haunted by the ghost of JOB, which is to say, NO SMALL LINEUPS. Get big, get strong and get down low against what is one of the smallest teams in the NBA. Do not let the second straight poor defensive team dictate to us what our end game lineup will be.
This is a good night to recover from that horrifying effort on the defensive boards (even though we were even with the Kings in total rebounds), the Warriors are in the bottom 1/3 of the league when it comes to crashing the boards.
