    Jared Wade: Pacers Waste Oxygen, Everybody’s Time in San Antonio

    The Pacers probably knew they had to play better than they did in their first three
    games to beat the Spurs in San Antonio. That didn’t prevent them from coming out
    and playing even worse, however.

    The first half was miserable, as nobody could hit a shot. Hard to blame them
    though really. Because they were almost all really bad shots. The whole offense
    was disjointed and jerky, with guys taking turns trying to make bad isolation plays
    more often than being part of a system that worked to get players open in positions
    where they could thrive. Here is all you really need to know if you were fortunate
    enough to spend your Monday night doing something other than watching this
    “game”: Indiana shot 6-for-22 in the first quarter (27.3%) and were barely better
    at the half (13-for-43 or 30.2%).

    Meanwhile, the Spurs, who had the most effective offense in the NBA last season
    and returned all of their principal rotation staples, put on a clinic, whipping the ball
    around the half court and never settling for anything but a good look. It certainly
    helps that Tony Parker can get into the lane whenever he wants, and he and Tim
    Duncan exploited this, often moving the Wake Forest legend out to the top of the
    key to make room for Parker to either attack the lane or get the ball to Duncan in
    space, where he was free to swing the ball and force the defense to react or take
    it inside himself. Later, Manu got in on the action, blowing by a defender here,
    carving up the defense in a two-man game there, and shot-faking Pacers out of
    their socks everywhere. Then there were the supporting shooters. Always, in San
    Antonio, are the supporting shooters. They shared the load of knocking down 8-of
    -18 three-point attempts, with Danny Green, Indy’s ol’ friend Stephen Jackson and
    Matt Bonner each sticking two a piece.

    This was basically a tiger playing with its food...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s



    The Onion
    Well-Meaning Friends Once Again Try To Set Up Cheryl Miller With Reggie Miller

    RIVERSIDE, CA—According to sources close to the former college basketball star,
    friends of Cheryl Miller once again attempted to set her up on a date with retired
    Indiana Pacer Reggie Miller on Saturday, apparently still unaware that the two are
    siblings. “Seriously, you guys have so much in common,” said Miller’s close friend
    Danielle Kaelin, stressing that the couple would “really hit it off if [Miller] would
    just give him a chance.” “Reggie loves basketball as much as you do. He played
    in college and even a few years in the NBA. I won’t lie to you Cheryl—he’s not the
    best looking guy out there. But he’s still in really great shape for his age, and he’s
    really rich, too.” At press time, a resigned Miller begrudgingly agreed to go out on
    a dinner date next week with her younger brother.

    Olzendam just threw out the modifier approximately in front of 3 months when talking about Danny's injury. I dunno guys...I think Pacers already know it may be worse than even what they are saying right now.

    Guess those knees finally caught up to us. Why do I have this deep dark thought that DG's career may very well be over? Say it aint so.

    it ain't so, what is making you think that? the answer to that is absolutely nothing, unless you know more than DG's doctor

    If you look up the illness Granger has he could be done. A lot of people who have Tendinosis can barley get around and it seems like it's chronic illness from just reading up on it.

    Wells said that he thinks is going to be longer and that 3 months is the best case scenario.

    Lucky for Granger it is just an injury, and not an illness. :P

    Ok on a more serious note, I don't remember if it was McFarland or Simon, but whoever it was this is the same injury that ended their career, so it isn't unprecedented. Although both of those guys were huge linemen carry much more weight than Granger which probably made it worse.

    I have liked our first two possessions. Josh Smith on Sam Young is a whole lot of trouble.

    Josh Smith must mark down the pacers game in his calender because he lights us up everytime we play him
    Counting down the days untill DJ Augustin's contract expires.

    Sam Young please stay clear of passing the ball.
    Much better outing than the previous games.

    I'm inclined to believe the fact that Sam Young is defending him has something to do with it.

    Turnovers alone are annoying. The blazing, unrepentant, wildy retarded turnovers that this team makes infuriates me to no end. Seriously, **** these guys.

    Any time our offense finds an open jump shot, it is rarely good offense, usually sheer dumb luck or bad D
