    Wow. What a huge turnaround!

    "But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    Not much chance at Gotham City on Sunday, especially with the nix defeat at Memphis. I was glad to see Rick Carlisle's #CHUCKSTRONG haircut last night. Glad he's on board with that.

    That sure felt good. I only wish Troy Murphy could have played more minutes.

    Good win... caught most of the second half, so maybe I missed some things. From my perspective, it looked like Paul George and Hibbert were still having a rough go...

    After watching this though, I could tell that chemistry is just taking time to build with the pretty much overhauled bench. Guys aren't sure of each other yet-- at least that's how it seemed to me. Great win (even without Dirk)... as vnzla said, I hope they build on it...

    George got into some foul trouble in the second half, and was cold in the 4th. The first half though he played extremely well. Hibbert struggled shooting, but he looked much better during the whole game, then really turned it on in the 4th.

    I consider this the first real win of the season.

    First time this season that I guessed the score here on this board - 99:81 Pacers. Not too shabby, I should guess more often

    Solid win, let's take this confidence and beat the Knicks.

    Edit: The below was a failed attempt at snarkiness. My apologies. It was a poor attempt to thumb my nose at the blow it up, tank crowd. Maybe should have said posters instead of fans. Was happy as hell for the win, and expressed it incorrectly.
    -----------

    Apparently all we had to do win was have some of the "fans" on this board completely give up.

    Fine. I didn't want to directly call out the tanking thread, which was the intended target. Thought it was a clever thing to say, but it did not come across as I had intended.

    I have added a preface apology to my original post.

    Platform shoes and a drinking problem. I shouldn't have to explain how that would work.




    BTW, I forgot to mention in the previous post that DJ continues to look bored/mundane. I don't get it. But as I was defending Sam/new players in other threads, you can see that Green, Ian and Sam are starting to figure out how they fit in. Green didn't have a big night, but you could also see where he backed it down on some plays rather than forcing his action at the wrong time. That's another sign of progress IMO.

    Roy, Paul and DJ are lagging the most. It would be nice to see all 3 kick off their funks.

    Thank Goodness for the WIN!

    What took so long for Frank to realize that his offensive scheme sucked and he needed to try something different. I still don't know about Frank and the Pacers. Mavs are a pretty bad team at the moment and their defense was terrible against the Pacers. We'll see soon where this team is come Sunday. I hope last night is the beginning of a great season and I hope Frank proves me wrong and shows that he can make adjustments and is NBA head coaching worthy!


    Go Pacers!

    Another thing about Lance last night that some may have missed. He was a real leader out there. "Leader" may be too strong, because he is so young. But he is a mega-cheerleader who encourages the guys who really need it after big plays.

    Not only that, he has that feel that winners have for when to hit key shots (Granger and Hill also have that). The three he hit in the third, I think, that put us up by 13 or so, was the psychological turning of the game. Players with a killer's instinct know how important it is not to just just coast on a 9 or 10 point lead but to put the foot on the opponent's throat.
