    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview Review:
    Jared Wade: Barbosa Is Happy to Be a Pacer

    Trades are a cold reality of the NBA. One day, a team is paying you a huge
    salary for your services, and the next they are telling you thanks, but no
    thanks ó we can do better. Then of course comes the relocation hassle and
    the burden that can place on families.

    For Leandro Barbosa, however, being traded from the Toronto Raptors to
    the Indiana Pacers was a welcome change. ďIt was my time,Ē he said, ďand
    Iím happy to be here.Ē

    It also usually helps the transition process when the player isnít blind-sided
    by the news. Barbosa foresaw moving on. ďI kind of knew,Ē said Barbosa.
    ď[Raptors GM] Bryan Colangelo told me Indiana was really interested,
    and he told me that it was maybe going to happen.Ē

    Then, on the day of the trade deadline, it did. And now the 29-year-old,
    long-armed combo guard from Sao Paulo, Brazil ó the largest city in
    South America ó once again gets to do what he made his NBA name off:
    being a key scorer off the bench for a playoff team.

    Individually, his time in Toronto was marked by unusually erratic (for him)
    shooting accuracy and struggles through a chronic wrist injury. But worse
    was the teamís futility. During his two years as a Raptor, his team racked
    up 102 losses compares to just 62 wins. This, for a guy who made the
    Western Conference Finals with the Phoenix Suns in his second season and
    won the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award for the 61-win Suns in 2006-07.

    In that respect, Barbosa is just happy to be headed back to the playoffs.
    ďIím very happy to be here,Ē said Barbosa. ďItís a good team. Itís a team
    that is going to the playoffs for sure. I love the coach and the organization.
    Itís a good opportunity for meóa new family for me.Ē

    Leandrinho, as he is called in his native Brazil, missed 8 of his 10 shots
    last night in Indianaís loss to the Suns and blew 3 of his 4 attempts
    against the Wizards the night before. But in his Pacers debut last Tuesday
    against the Clippers, Barbosa scored 9 points in his first 9 minutes in an
    Indiana uniform and finished the game scoring 12 on 10 shots.

    The key thread in all performances has been putting up a lot of looks.

    According to Barbosa, thatís exactly what he was brought in to do. He
    talked about his role...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s


    Bucksketball:
    Month of March? More like month of Mike!

    I canít explain how it happened, I canít say I expected it to happen. But I can
    say Iím enjoying it.

    Some how, while being the most enjoyable to watch Milwaukee Bucks forward
    since Toni Kukoc left town, Mike Dunleavy has been one of the best offensive
    players in the NBA over the past month. Heís kind of playing like Kukoc, if only
    Kukoc was just leaving his prime rather than a few years past it when he was
    in Milwaukee. Thatís a lofty compliment coming from as big a Kukoc fan as me.

    In the month of March, Dunleavy has averaged 16/4/4 while shooting better
    than 50%, one of only three players (as far as I can tell) to do so. The other
    two? Lebron James and Dwyane Wade. Wow. Dunleavy joins James again as
    one of the leagueís top 10 players in True Shooting Percentage, a measure
    that takes into account field goals, threes and free throws.

    Dunleavy isnít forcing his athleticism down the throats of opponents in the
    way that James and Wade are though. Rather heís using his opponents speed
    and athleticism against them quite frequently. If I had a dollar for every
    occasion this season that Dunleavy has pump faked and watched a defender
    fly five feet past him trying to block his shot as he calmly took another
    dribble forward and knocked down his shot Iíd be a rich man.

    And where James and Wade drive and dish and throw full court lobs to each
    other, Dunleavy has a more cerebral approach to moving the ball on offense.
    Heís quick and heís smart. Never does the ball linger in his hands. He comes
    off screens and when he pulls up to shoot he often has an eye on the man
    rolling to the hoop. While heís in the air he has the ability to use his height
    and make the pass to the rolling screener or pull-up for a jumper himself.
    On the wing or on the pick and roll, he makes decisions quickly. Even though
    he hasnít fared particularly well as a shooter in pick and roll situations, heís
    shown an ability to create for his teammates and find the screener rolling
    to the hoop.

    Offensively heís really shined...CONTINUE READING BUCKSKETBALL
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Looking forward to the game tonight. The Monta trade was brilliant for the Bucks. All they needed was some offense and having Monta opens up the court for everybody. I'm not sure if they'll make the playoffs or not, but they're a much better team now than they were a couple weeks ago IMO.

    Bogut was never the same after his injury. Bucks also picked up a lottery pick from a couple years back in Udoh who's a really good post defender. If they can resign Monta, I'd say the Bucks won that trade.

    I agree though, they're still weak in the front court. Hibbert should get the ball every time down tonight.

    I obviously want the Pacers to win, but I expect the Bucks to out reb and get more asts than the Pacers no matter who wins the game.

    Fesenko isn't dressing for a week? I'd hate to be in the Pacers' locker room for that.

    Wells
    Center Kyrylo Fesenko, who the Pacers signed last week, won’t make his debut with the team for about a week. Pacers coach Frank Vogel said Fesenko has some visa issues to get resolved before he’ll be able to play. “He’ll be able to work with us, but he won’t be traveling to road games,” Vogel said. “He’ll be working with our strength and conditioning coach getting some shots up working on those sort of things.”

    Is this the first ever game between two teams both playing on the third night of back-to-back-to-backs?
