    Default Pacers/Nuggets postgame

    Just a very sloppy game to say the least.

    Not calling a timeout on that last play was one of the dumbest things I've seen the Pacers do this year, and that's saying something.

    Time for a new coach. A good coach would have taken the timeout... and had a good play to run to get a decent look. This coach didn't take the timeout, but honestly do we have any faith at all he would have called a good play anyway? I don't. He also fails to call timeouts during big runs against us and has terrible substitution rotations.

    I still think the roots of this loss lies with the bench.... there's a reason all the Pacers games are close and its the bench. You cannot let NBA teams get back into games and thats exactly what the bench does consistently.

    The only play I thought should have definitely gone our way was Andre Millers flop travel. The Stephenson play was 50/50 and that was not a foul on the last play of the game.

    Lance really hurt us by missing a foul shot. I'm a big Lance fan. He should definitely be in there instead of Young. But if he makes both free throws Hill is headed to the basket for the final fast break to tie the game. Instead he had to had back out to the perimeter for a desperation heave.

    Too bad.

    not blaming him or anything, but Lance hits both those FTs we have a good chance to be watching OT right now

    We should really have called a timeout on the last play

    I wanted this win. It's going to be hard against OKC.

    Oh well. Time to watch some Fairy Tail it seems.

    I'll agree with you all day that the bench is bad Rock, but they are who they are. It's the coaches job to minimize how bad they can be, and he fails to do that when he sticks 4 and 5 of them out there at a time. It's like... they suck, so let them play when they can be somewhat hidden by some decent players. You don't stick 4 people who suck on the floor together at the same time, that's just bad coaching.

    I switch it over to the Philly-Boston game and the ref makes a terrible call. Must be one of those nights for those guys.

    Would have been nice to be 11-9 going into OKC... OKC's bench will terrorize ours.

    Beating the Thunder in their place is never an easy task.

    Gotta get it done.

    Our backcourt for the bench is so weak. It is disgusting.

    I think it's a valid viewpoint.

    I also think there is some sense to continuing on with play and trying to get a shot off before the defense can set up. The problem is, George Hill wasn't completely thinking. He headed in towards the basket, then realized he had to back out for the three attempt. Perfect storm of miscalculations.

    Yup. We won't be able to win consistently with a bench that bad. No way.

    I disagree it created a wide open look by pushing the pace. PG24 was wide open West and Hill just didnt see him. Weren't gonna get a better look than the one PG had if our players would have only seen him. But we had there defense all over the place scrambling I like not giving them a chance to set up.

    Lance was getting worked tonight he helps way to much when off the ball and it killed us a few times. Then on the ball he wasnt playing the personal correctly but our bench wings are awful so cant really do anything about it.

    I think the viewpoint was an overreaction.

    It was a complete miscalculation, but pissing and whining for a new coach is completely dumb.

    Bench was not good.
    Lance Stephenson should've made both freethrows
    I feel that one three that George Hill shot and missed early in the shot clock killed momentum
    Miller was not fouled on that play
    Lance Stephenson was fouled
    George Hill wasn't fouled on the three and we should've taken a timeout anyway.

    Paul George with 3 great games in a row though! Outplayed Iguodala tonight.

    Sign Mike Bibby.

    Or

    Trade a 1st to OKC for Reggie Jackson.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!
