    I would also like to know what happened to West? 3points? Really? Vogel should had put Lou in his place.
    Yeah, he looked old tonight! Not sure LOU is the answer there, but I am open to the energy he brings ... his offensive game, like HANS leaves a lot to be desired.

    our offense needs a lot of time spent on improving - right now whenever we see something out of the ordinary by the opposing defense (zone, trapping, etc) the whole team goes into a funk and can't figure out what they should do to save their lives.

    I just have to say that when I read your posts these days I hear Giles narrating them in my head. When we lose this provides a much needed chuckle.

    Nice to see the NBA refs are trying to outdo their college counterparts.

    I'm not sure if this makes anyone feel better, but we are nearly at .600 and we should start winning more games next week and we have a day to prepare for Miami here in Indy. I think we finish the season strong and see Barbosa add some punch to the bench.

    How many more losses until we see the return of Mal?

    I was going to get on here and rip Vogel for pulling George in the 1st, but he left him in in the 3rd, so I'll let him slide. When a players got the hot hand, I wish he'd leave him in though.

    I don't know what's going on with Danny. He's taking really bad shots here lately.

    Hibbert looked good, which was nice to see considering he got bullied last night in New York. I wish we could get him the ball more. I counted several times he was in position with his hand up, and we drove around him or passed the other way. He should touch the ball every time down if he can.

    George played well besides the 3 turnovers in a row. I liked Vogel's strategy to start the game. A lot of the plays were being initiated by Paul. We need to get him involved early and often if we plan on using the egg timer, and pulling him out first.

    Darren missed another ally tonight. He had it open and was afraid to let it fly. I'm glad he was aggressive with his shot tonight. He needs to play that way always.

    If I were Vogel, I'd bring a checkbook with me to the press conference and just fill out the amount for a fine right then and there, because I've seen high school refs in schools notorious for "home cooking" call a more unbiased game than that.


    Absolutely disgusted.

    The refs had nothing to do with our lack of hustle and inability to box out on the defensive glass tonight. If you want to blame someone, blame the Pacers. That was just awful "basketball."

    By the way, Danny is trending on Twitter right now and is getting torn apart for his comments after the Philly game.
    I don't know if anyone caught ESPN last night, but it was the longest Pacers highlight ever. At least 90% of it was the interviews and Danny's terrible play.

    anyone else remember the times when Amare would drop 40+ on us easily? This doesn't happen anymore but that doesn't mean there aren't areas in our game which needs serious fixing.

    When our team plays with passion - we can go toe to toe with anyone and even come out on top - the problem is most games which we lose - our players just have that uninterested look with their body language - whether its fatigue or some sort of a mental lapse - i haven't figured it out yet - tonight it was obvious George Hill was going through it - previously it was Hibbert who had been dealing with it for well over 8 games along with the rest of the players.

    I just don't understand how almost the whole team is always off at the same time given for one or two players. That is a concern which has bugged me all my life as if the team just agrees before the game that they are going to half-*** it and call it in...

    the thing which we're missing from the first half of the season is the hunger and passion - our players were wanting to win - they had that hunger and swagger in their game like something to prove - we've seen that glimpse in the Philly game and it was great - but they need to get to that on a regular basis like they did in the first 20 games of the season...the "smashmouth basketball"
    We need more dogs. Tougher minded players, that hate to lose.

    this, this x 1000

    it is so painful to watch young players learning how to play. they are able to do what the coach tells them, but nothing else. i'm surprised someone doesn't just change defenses every quarter. pacers might have trouble breaking 60 pts.

    Looking like a 6 seed or lower now. We seem to be getting less cohesive as the season progresses. I'm starting to get a little impatient with the coaching. Only can be a matter of time until many do the same as long as the current morass of play continues.
    I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees.

    whats up with David West not playing very much in the 2nd half??
    Hell they had Granger playing PF several times.

    If your that worried about Super Novak how about you make him guard West in the post?

    Youth can be a real pain in the ***. It is hard watching this young team grow. Through the good times and bad times is the identity of a young team. Hopefully we can get it together and finish the season strong. At least Roy had a good game tonight.

    yeah, he's never been quick, but now he's slow.

    or slower if you prefer. his BBIQ normally makes up for his lack of quickness. lately he seems behind the play. his hands seem ok. he still has quick hands, but his feet seem heavy.

    has he been playing extra minutes?

    2 points in half time and bad D can do that to a player, Vogel made the right decision in not bringing him back.
