    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview Review:
    Jonathan Auping: The Pacers Are "Just Right"

    Once upon a time, there was a little basketball scout named Gold E. Locks. Mr.
    Locks knew basketball and he had always been able to predict which teams were
    successful based on his theory that balanced basketball always gets the job done.
    Well, for one weekend, Gold was assinged to scout three NBA teams: the Boston
    Celtics, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Indiana Pacers. He decided to assess
    a few areas on each team and try to figure out which team was likely to have the
    most success.

    Gold decided to visit each team in their home city to watch them in their
    respective practice sessions. He stayed in Boston for a night and made the
    personal decison that, “This city is far too busy and populated. Although the
    baked beans are great, I could never live here.”

    After Boston, he flew over to Oklahoma City. OKC wasn’t Mr. Locks’ cup of tea
    either. “This city is far too dull. I can’t believe that when I asked the hotel
    concierge for night-life ideas she simply had the horse and buggy take me to the
    local IHOP. No way I could live here.”

    Gold next spent a weekend in Indianapolis. He felt at home. “You know, this city
    is just right. Not too crowded, not too dull. I could really see myself raising a
    family here.”

    I’m not quite sure how Gold’s living preferences made it into this article, but
    more importantly, I was able to get a copy of the notes he took from his scouting
    report. Since Mr. Locks is such a great basketball mind, I thought that I might
    share a few of the points he made regarding three teams that Pacers fans have
    recently become familiar with.

    AGE


    Celtics: “This team is far too old. A few of their players seem too elderly to even
    run the fast break. This is supposed to be a basketball team, not a retirement
    home.”

    Thunder: “This team is far too young. Young teams can make poor decisons late
    in games. That James Harden guy might fool some people with his beard, but
    apparently he is only 22 years old. This is supposed to be a basketball team, not
    a daycare center.”

    Pacers: ”This team’s age is just right. Most of its core is pretty young, but the
    roster has some great veterans like David West and Danny Granger. Age shoudn’t
    be a problem for them.”...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s


    Bucksketball
    Owning pessimism – Why it doesn’t make you a bad person

    As my Milwaukee Bucks world came crashing down around me earlier this week
    I found myself, as I often do, looking to Twitter and Facebook for some sort of
    kinship. I don’t know what I was looking for. I guess I wanted to see other people
    complaining about the Bucks. I wanted to see people frustrated about what was
    going on.

    My search ended almost as quickly as it began.

    I saw almost nothing.

    I did see the occasional person compliment Milwaukee on its effort. Then I saw
    someone in my Facebook timeline had a picture from the Knicks game with a
    caption of something like, “Got last minute tickets to the Bucks game.” The first
    comment was about no one ever actually making a plan to go to a Bucks game.
    The second was something more simple, like the Bucks suck. I shook my head,
    rolled my eyes and moved on to Twitter where some people were feeling the
    same way I was.

    All the national writers and bloggers I follow had little to nothing to say about
    the ramifications of the Bucks-Knicks game though. A few comments about the
    Knicks probably securing a playoff spot and about the Bucks having their work
    cut out for them the rest of the way were made. Matt Moore had a bunch of
    funny tweets throughout the night. But after the game was done on Wednesday,
    the biggest regular season game the Bucks have had a couple years mind you,
    pretty much no one was talking about the Bucks.

    That’s our reality right now. I was incredibly charged and full of a variety of
    thoughts from “I TOLD EVERYONE SO” to “Can it get any worse?” to “Maybe
    Monta Ellis can work.” But only a few hundred people really cared.

    No one ever really cares. The Bucks do not matter. And that’s why I am the
    way I am. That’s why I write the way I write.

    I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I want to be a more positive person. I
    want to be an optimist. People at work have discussed starting a list of all the
    things I hate. That’s probably a sign that I need to stop hating so many things
    (or that I need to stop being so vocal about what I hate). The Bucks would
    probably be on that list. Nothing in my life has ever been more love/hate than
    my relationship with the Bucks.

    But the hatred in me just feasts and gets stronger when I see things like this:

    “It’s important for the players, the coaches, myself, the business
    operation, and first and foremost for the fans,” Sen. Herb Kohl
    said of reaching the playoffs. ”It’s a lot easier to sell your product
    when you have a winning season. If we get to the playoffs, I think
    we’ll all feel that we’ve had a good season. Then we’ll hope to do
    well in the playoffs.

    When I see that, I just throw my hands up. The playoffs are a Band-Aid on a
    shotgun wound. I feel the same way when I see the “look how hard the Bucks
    are trying” stories...READ MORE AT BUCKSKETBALL

    The Pacers can't take this game lightly, b/c the Bucks have to win every game they possibly can to make 8th seed and the playoffs. The Bucks are not bottomdwellers like Toronto and Cleveland as they are 7-3 in their last 10 games. The Pacers need to come out strong and play strong for 48 min.

    DC is still out? Get better soon little dude.

    PG better stick to Ellis. I think Hill can keep Jennings in check. Key to the game is to ensure they both don't shoot lights out.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I like the Bucks as a team. I think that they deserve the playoffs. They will be hungry tonight. We have to take them seriously.

    I'm hoping for good games by PG and Roy. They will be instrumental in tonight's success. Atlanta is going to have an easier 3 game stretch so we need to take as many wins as we can.

    back to backs are tough, but the starters got good rest in the 4th last night. Also, DC not playing is good for us this game imo. We get to start the game with such a defensive intensity against their back court, we can set the tone early.

    Bucks are all about Swag. If we can shut the swag down, we win this game.

    This is one of those games where having George Hill start is going to really help us. Hill and PG can both contain Jennings and Ellis. The rest of their team is mediocre at best. I'm still kinda iffy about this game, hopefully we go 16 games over .500%.

    apparently dwight is going to be out of games for at least 2 weeks to treat his back.

    which prompted this response from stan van gundy

    Ersan Ilyasova is not mediocre.

    But I agree with the rest.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    The Bucks are definitely a perfect storm for him; he gave them so much trouble last time they most surely gameplanned for him, but still have nobody who can stop him. Double teams to force him to pass.

    Even if he doesn't pull it off, I'm more than happy to just watch him make them squirm.

    Oh, Kwame's out. Never mind, we're good.


    Seriously, though I'm terrified of the Bucks' three point threats, especially Ersan taking advantage of West/Tyler. Also, the Squad Six hometown advantage.
