Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs: (3) Indiana vs. (6) Orlando
Can't count how many times I heard "80% of teams that win game 1 win the series" during the broadcast yesterday. And each and every time I thought "yeah that sure worked out great for us in '01 AND '02." Bottom line is the team that goes out and executes the best always wins. The magic had a game plan and executed it to near perfection. Credit to Stan Van Gundy.
That being said, we played pretty poorly. It's not like the magic were some invincible force on defense. We scored over 20 points below our season average. And we still almost won. I can't imagine we can lay an egg multiple games in a row. I'm not freakin out yet. If we lose game two though, ask me again.
Yes, but Howard allows for shooters to get open. That's why Orlando put shooters around him. If someone pulls off their wing to help out with Howard, Howard simply dishes it back out. Without Howard, they have no threat underneath the basket and thus no reason to really help out. Our attention will be 100% on stopping the 3 ball.
I think they will get hot for 1 game and that we win it in 5.
No I think they are good shooters whether or not Howard is in the game. They have talent and this Howardless team could beat last playoff Pacers in 6 games easily.
I just hope that the later half of your post is true. But I can't see this Pacer team winning 4 in a row against a well coached hot shooting team.
callahan is as good as there is. IIRC, he calls lots of off the ball fouls. clutch and grab kind of stuff.
ed malloy is the tall guy. i used to like him, but the last couple of games he officiated for the pacers, i thought we got the short end of the calls.
palmer isn't a good official, imo, but not unfair. as long as she watches the game and doesn't blow her whistle, things will be fine. same thing with malloy
the good news in all this is marc davis is not officiating this game. he is the guy that threw rondo out of the hawks/celtics game. i always worry when he officiates. he is a prima donna and always seems to have an agenda
