Where has Tylers game gone!????
Just an ugly game, everybody was horrible
And the walls came tumbling down.....
Good first quarter then we totally collapsed. Very disappointing and unacceptable. hopefully we clean it up fast or will we get blown out tommorow.
every one has a bad game... give em a break
vnzla81, are you ever going to put any thought into your first post game posts?
our bench was completely useless tonight...
I have no idea where Hill was that whole game
We finished with 8 assists all by Roy, West and Granger while Turkoglu had 8 himself.
A win tomorrow can certainly soften the blow of this defeat.
Well maybe next time or when Howard's gone
well...hopefully we pull an Orlando and beast up on the road after being embarrassed just the night before
Their bench just demolished our bench with Howard out of the game. That was one of several keys that allowed them to get the advantage.
The fact that we were shooting terribly for the final 36 minutes certainly didn't help.
Danny and Roy were hot early, and unfortunately we just relaxed.
Hope we learned our lesson there...
Let's shock the Bulls tomorrow!
1 AST in the 2nd half of the game! 8 asts for the entire game. Pathetic!
Well, at least Pacers play tomorrow, hopefully they can go into Chicago and kick there A S S and we can all forget about this night!

the offense was horrendous, think it was a system isuue... players looked lost so many possessions
The one match-up that went horribly wrong for us was David West vs. Ryan Anderson. Going into the game, this was the one that concerned me the most because West has old man speed and Anderson is a threat from deep and to drive. I had hoped that West's physicality in the post would act as a counterweight to Anderson's impact on the perimeter, but West (and later Tyler) couldn't get much going down low, and their pass out attempts were more likely to end up as turnovers than easy baskets. It seemed like we were making a concerted effort to go to West, but that effort did not produce favorable results.
1st quarter success was a combination of great ball movement and Orlando playing a little lax. Once Orlando turned up the intensity on defense, we reacted poorly. Players started to hesitate before making the pass and started playing selfish ball.
We need to be more confident in our ball movement, like we were in the 1st quarter and against the Lakers. The fact that we can play like that in stretches is great, we just need to learn how to adjust and maintain discipline under different defensive pressure. A lot of that will be on the development of our guards, in learning how to read defenses and controlling our pace.
Because of our how great we looked against the Lakers, Im not worried at all. I wouldn't be surprised if we pull an upset over the next few games.
We got a new weapon this time around: a Lance forged on the Isle de Coney, built for piercing trolls and false kings alike! Prince Paul rides with this Lance at hand, from the West fortress on Mt. Hibb. He shall pierce the demon heart of your misguided Cavalier, and he shall claim his crown.

he just isnt very good if his shot is not going he is useless. When Earl Clark can push you off the block along with Ryan Anderson there is a major issue.
8 assists is pathetic
Lou Amunson makes 2 good plays that saved him from his own mistakes kind of ironic.
Their defense was smothering but our offense made it look better than it was off night on offense.
We got caught in the perfect storm. Coming home off a long trip, after getting a big win in LA before heading right back out on the road. Then we faced a team who got dismantled last night coming in with a chip on their shoulder.
overall we played horrible. We got out hustled on both ends of the court.

Vnzla81 is correct. There was a tendency in the past for post-game threads to pop up much, much later after losses than wins. As to whether the post-game thread should have in-depth analysis, I don't think that it should. Ideally, the post-game thread should aim to be informative (with a final score or box score included) rather than express a certain opinion that will then serve to frame the post-game debate, if that makes any sense.
