    Default Hawks/Pacers postgame thread 03/06/12

    Sigh . Losing to the Hawks without Joe Johnson and Al Harford, while getting out rebounded, and getting abused on the offensive boards. No excuses in this one.

    getting outrebounded is becoming a common theme here....
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    We need a point guard.

    We should've went to Hill and West towards the end they were the two who had it going, but no, we went to Paul and Granger, West didn't even touch the ball.

    I blame AJ price for both losses. (Can I do that now?)

    And I also blame the whole team for not giving David West the ball at all down the stretch.

    West scores much better when he shoots open shots and backs down into great position - who would have thought?

    Sigh is indeed the correct sentiment

    We blew it today, folks. We shouldn't lose this one. I'm concerned now.

    We need a legit starting point guard. I've always been supportive of DC but at this point in his career he's just not consistent enough to be starting.

    Tough one to take at home after a 20 point loss to Bulls, w/o Joe Johnson and Horford. Got out-rebounded and Atlanta knocked down open jumpshots. Josh Smith, Pargo and Marvin Williams

    That cupcake schedule before the All Star Break was the last thing this team needed. Every time they get on a good streak I think it goes to their heads a bit. We don't have enough talent to just show up and beat good teams. We can only beat the good teams through effort and playing as a team. We'll see how many losses in a row it takes here before they wake up again.

    The early season swagger is gone... Something has changed. The team is not 'smashmouth' any longer. Gone are the days when teams are getting chippy with the Pacers and getting taken out of their game. Instead it's the Pacers getting mentally taken out of the game.

    David West appears to me to be the closest guy to having some swagger, poise, and ability to score when we need a bucket... and we probably should emphasize him more.

    Granger has lost it... his inconsistency is just momentum killing. For whatever reason it just doesn't seem to be coming back.

    Hibbert's agent is probably wondering if he can rewind the clock and talk about that extension afterall.

    No hustle or urgency, with poise, from the team as a whole at all.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Rebounding killed us but J. Smith was on tonight. At least until the crunch. We had our chances but couldn't capitalize. Paul George is an ANIMAL!
    I have no faith, expectations or anything in DC. The sooner he's replaced the better. He just isnt good enough.

    I get upset when PG, DG, DW, RH or GH come up short because I expect good things from them. DC on the other hand, I don't even care anymore.

    We shot our season high in FT and lost at home.

    The attendance looked real bad on TV and this game following a national TV beat down isn't going to help get butts in the seats, especially with the Florida swing on deck which could/should push our record vs winning teams even lower.

    This loss is 10 times worse than the Bulls. Their 2 best players out and we still lose.

    Granger and Hibbert still disappearing in games. DC has struggled recently. Hans is just plain bad; teams know how to play him and Hans just doesn't have the talent to make the adjustment.

    Smashmouth D has been MIA for a loooong time now. Help defense is slow and closes in too far leaving guys wide open for 3; really need to work on that. Pacers continue to give up too many O-boards.

    Nice to see West play well. PG's shot is still off, but his D has really picked up. Glad to have Hill off the bench.

    Definitely not complete doom or gloom. Our record is still pretty damn good. This team just needs to find that defensive intensity they had to start the year. Granger really needs to step up as the leader and best player on the team.

    What I do know is that upgrading the point isn't going to happen this year. I do think getting Kaman should be a top priority. His offense will really help the second unit and may help Hans get some better looks.

    Now really free Lance!

    I'm tired of seeing people leading the fast break and people closing out on that person and instead of just doing the common sense thing we take it up against 3 or 4 people and end up embarassing ourselves. Also, I think we lead the league in and 1 plays. I don't know if they keep track of that sort of thing but we see like 4 - 5 of those every night from some lame *** touch foul that makes me want to throw my remote through the screen.

    Surprised Larry Drew isn't getting more attention with two of his best players being out and his team still playing strong.

    Hansbrough's offense is too one-dimensional. Three moves and that's it, a jump shot that seldom goes in, one dribble two step towards the middle jump hook, and put backs. Can't even shoot a fadeaway. Teams know this and have adjusted their defense towards Hansbrough, and he has no clue how to counter.

    Alright guys... I missed the game... am noticing some strange tendancies from the box score, can you fill me in?


    Hibbert only took 6 shots?
    Price only played 6 mins AND lance didn't play?

    Every time i hear a David West interview, I think everything is going to be ok.

    I'm all for the Amundson for backup power forward move. Lou makes some boneheaded passes at times, but it can't be any worse than your backup power forward shooting for 25%. Even if lou does suck at making foul shots at least he's drawing fouls.

    Our record is delusional. I'd really like to see what the combined record for teams we've played is, compared to others. Two days ago we were sitting at #3 in the East yet people were still talking about NYK, BOS, ATL, ORL as main threats to chicago and miami. I wondered why, but now I know, we're just not that good against top teams right now.

    Starters played a lot of minutes tonight cause our bench just sucks. So much for a deep bench.

    Pacers win games when: Granger steps up, bench plays well, & defensive intensity is high. Oh yeah, and we missed a lot of FTs that could have changed the game.
