"Nobody wants to play against Tyler Hansbrough NO BODY!" ~ Frank Vogel

At the end of the day the starters are the ones that face the other team best players and if they can't do anything against them the team is probably going to lose and the Pacers proved that.
Blame Barbosa, Tyler, Lou, DC all you want but at the end of the day the starters didn't step up.

There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

But that wasn't really the point. The point is Tyler was really bad. Collison did fine. Lou did fine.

Hey vzla, nice to meet a fellow Venezuelan (I'm from Barquisimeto), especially in an Indiana based forum.
I'll probably take the time later because right now I haven't been able to find it, but the data for our starter's 5 man unit plus-minus in the Heat series has been shown here in other threads, and I believe it portrayed our starters actually being a net positive or very close to that. I say that because you seem to think that our starters were overwhelmed in said series and it seems to be a factually wrong assertion. I could be wrong but that is what I recall: I'll try to find the info.
Really though, we were up on the Miami heat 2-1. We just got too cocky about ourselves and they came to play. We had all the momentum, we were at home to put us up 3-1, yet we lacked the "killer instinct" as coach Vogel calls it. I hope that they learned something from that, and they come ready to duke it out EVERY game. I was a legitimate believer that we could have won it all last year, but I guess it is hard to expect such a thing from a young team still learning how the playoffs work. I will, however, be just as much a believer that we can do it this year.
