    Second night of a CHOKE back to back with IU.

    Wtf, choke?

    Your definition of choke is different from mine

    Raptors played well. Pacers looked exhausted in the 4th quartet.

    If you can't call that a choke, you are an even bigger homer than I thought.

    You can just stop there with that.

    Imo choke is when the pressure of the moment causes a player or players to not make the right play. I didn't see that tonight

    What type of play did David West make? All he had to do was inbound the ball and we win.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    George Hill had a terrible game as well. 2 missed free throws out of four late in the game. This is a game we should have won man that stings...

    David Wests inbounds pass is the definition of choke.

    Really! You think David West got so nervous he just choked the ball up?

    choke (ch˝k) v. choked, chok·ing, chokes. --tr. 4. Sports. To fail to perform effectively because of nervous agitation or tension:

    David West is to much of a veteran to choke in a regular season game like that. Hoop is right!

    I am a David West homer and even I agree that the man choked down the stretch. He was a beast all game but twice we had unforced judgment turnovers with the ball in his hands. Does he have a history of choking, no. But last night was a example the man is human and mistakes are made.

    Raps did play well, but two key multiple bad TOs - one at the end of regulation and the two possessions down the stretch when they could have put it away. They choked - 4 point lead 10 seconds in regulation and lose?

    People are about to overreact because of IU's loss yesterday. But when you looked at the schedule and saw 5 games in 7 nights, you had to assume that there was a loss in there somewhere. Sorry that it had to be like this, especially given the mental state of many of the state's basketball fans.

    It's not that both teams lost, it's that both teams gave their respective games away at the end.

    You don't have to tell me. I couldn't sleep last night because of that IU game. But one NBA game with an exhausted team is not that big of a deal. But that IU game was a season blowing loss to a terrible team. No matter how bad the Raptors have been, they are still an NBA team with a couple of very good players.

    The same amount of effort though by either team would have gotten them the win. Give two more minutes of effort and get the win for gods sake.

    IU loses last night after having the game in control and now the Pacers lose by 2 points after having the game in control.

    If you watch the replay it was a very careless pass.

    Knicks might lose tonight, Brooklyn already lost, and this team fails to gain anything in the standings.

    This is ridiculous, look how close the standings are 3rd vs 8th seed.

    Also, our team is gassed now, so many minutes for our starters, we really need Granger back.

    Despite the 5 blocks, Hibbert with just 3 boards. Are you serious? As the Raps just cleaned the offensive glass.
