    The starters, besides collison and george, were clearly tired. oh well, can't do much when you just can't make a shot, but great effort at the end.

    + 1 Last thing we need is a slumping Big Fella. Selfishly, I always enjoy seeing guys look as dejected as I feel after a loss. Appreciate his passion.

    effort was there, legs were not. i wonder how bad this team is going to play on the third leg of a back to back to back if this is an indication, though...

    @8pts9secs At no point in time has Orlando shown any actual interest in wanting to win this game, yet, here we sit.

    @8pts9secs I'm not kidding. They shouldn't award a win to either team in this game.

    @8pts9secs If this was game was a horse, they'd shoot it...but probably miss.

    I don't think even Speilberg could make audiences cheer for this horse.

    Got two days off we need to forget this game, then we get utah on the tail end of a back to back so hopefully we bounce back. I really want the city to get behind this team, that's why thhese losses hurt me. The common fan will just think "same ol pacers" and the fieldhouse will continue to be a tomb. I really hate our city sometime.

    I expected this loss. As I've said I just couldn't see us going 5-0. Nor did I expected us to go even 4-1 but anyway. Maybe I jixned us again

    Anyway, I agree with a lot of the things that have been said till now. It was nice that Tyler had a great game. Our bench was great tonight. I liked that our guys never gave up. Hell, I even liked that Roy looked sad after the turnover. You can see that those guys want to win. They were just too tired to do this tonight.

    Also, I agree with TheDon about why this loss hurts more than it should. It was one of the few nights that BLF was packed.

    That said, we have to bounce back in Utah. I believe in those guys. They can make it

    Have there been any other capacity crowds this year? Opening night I guess?

    At least Tyler played well and aggressive. Hopefully this sparks a few strong games in a row for him.

    Also, we've got another four-in-fiver next week, so let's...um, rest more?

    I've got to say, that was one of the poorest blocks I have ever seen.

    I love Paul George, but keep the macho testosterone out of the block. The shot could have, and easily should have, been snagged out of mid-air. Almost as important as the block itself is who gains possession following the block. In this instance George could have easily gained possession and started the break towards our score.

    The play just made #10 on ESPN.

    Paul George is a man whose motor is always on. Can't argue with that.

    I would have expected nothing else from ESPN. No more than I have ever expected from them through the years. ESPN has never been big on promoting good, sound, fundamental basketball. Instead, they promote the "exciting" play, i.e. the macho play. Dunks, three-pointers, posterizing blocks.

    As much as I have enjoyed that ESPN has brought results and highlights from around the league through the years, I also hate them as much for changing basketball in ways that I consider negative. By glorifying dunking, three-pointers and blocks, as well as "macho" testerone-injected play, they have convinced young players through the years that that is the way the game should be played.

    So, they brought about more athletic play, which in my opinion has been good. But I believe it has also helped de-emphasize sound fundamental play, which I believe has been bad.

    Personally, had George snagged the ball out of the air and made a quick outlet pass to start the break that resulted in a lay-in, I would have given him a #1 this evening on ESPN's play list.

    Have to agree about ESPN. The other day they highlighted the top 5 (I think) players of the night and Paul George wasn't even mentioned yet he had better stats than half the list.

    we lost one this week, that's not too bad..and not unexpected.

    I think Vogel made a bit of a coaching mistake, and probably should have stuck with the bench longer than he did (as most were playing better than their starter counterpart).

    They were tired. Nice to see Tyler have a good game, Lance make some good plays, AJ run the offense pretty well, and Lou contribute. We need that from them.

    Holy ****, the technical fouls were ridiculous. This may have been the worst game of the season, for the NBA.

    Players are tired and it showed. They were chippy too.

    What I will say is that a team like Orlando would have beaten us by 20 last year.

    nice to come as close as they did. but 5 games in 7 days is just going to kill the legs, and it showed.

    idle thought, do you think vogel decided to play the starters extra early in the week and just gave this game away in exchange for 4 other wins???

    I think the tough part was our starters playing such heavy minutes last night. Then it's tough to have a back to back in Dallas, and then back in Indy. Even the shots we made tonight weren't very clean. Dead legs. I will say that we battled them tough, and had a shot to win it, even though we were running on fumes.

    I was thinking the Pacers played last night in Dallas like a playoff game they couldn't afford to lose. Perhaps by that point they could look at this Orlando game at home, the night before the SB, and gamble that home court energy would carry them over the hump. They just didn't leave much on the court in Dallas and didn't try and save anyone's legs for tonight. And that's fine. I'd rather beat Dallas than try and play conservatively to give the team a better chance at tonight and then end up losing both games.

    Really, I'm not that disappointed. They fought back. They played hard. Yeah, Vogel maybe could've or should've stuck with the bench longer tonight but hindsight is 20-20. They kept the game close and in the waning moments still had shots to tie the game.

    Any one loss doesn't mean anything, just as any one win doesn't mean anything. It's when you look at the trends that mean something and right now the trend is still very good.

    They didn't lose because they weren't trying hard to compete, they lost because their shots were all just a little short or a little flat... and that points to tired arms and legs. But they still did their best to defend....

    1 game... move on....
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
