    Toughest loss of the season.

    pacers looked dead tired late in the game. I understand why frank brought the starters back so early in the 4th, but IMO it cost us the game late. Also give the Celtics defense a lot of credit - very good defense, second game this year where they took us out of what we wanted to do

    We can blame the game on missing 3's if we want but we can't ignore the fact that Boston completely shut down everything we wanted in the 4th quarter. Hill just made two tough threes, a fastbreak dunk, and an actual good set which got George open. That aside, none of our post players could get into position, while Hill and PG couldn't penetrate off the dribble at all.

    Awful, just awful execution in the end of the game, with some ominous signs.

    I just posted in the game thread that their b-ball IQ collectively got lowered in the 2nd half. It was sooooo bad, I felt it needed to be reiterated here.

    How can you be so sure? There is a team that is only a 1/2 game behind us...
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    If the Pacers don't come up with a less predictable offense at the end of games they are not going to win s***, I have been saying forever that smart teams know how to stop the Hill/West pick and roll play, today was a good example.

    All games matter when it comes to a razor thin lead over the Knicks and just a few games lead ahead of the 4th and 5th seeded Teams.

    Disappointing and pathetic at the end. We didn't score a single point in the last 4 minutes.

    Inexcusable loss. Boston is an old team playing a back to back and they made all the crucial clutch plays down the stretch.

    They are a better team than us right now even though the record is worse. They know how to get it done when it counts.

    Vogel got schooled by Doc tonight.

    Inexcusable effort and execution down the stretch.

    Terrible, terrible loss.

    Am I the only one who is wondering why there was a no-call on the last second pass to PG for the potential tie when that's the exact same contact and foul that lost us the game in Denver?

    Because we got screwed in that game. We already know that was a bad call. Celtics shouldn't get penalized for a bad break we got before. Eye for an eye makes the world blind.

    Actually, it's only 2 bad games. He was superb against Toronto.

    This one is basically on West. 2 turnovers, 0-1 FG, 2 bad defensive plays...all in 90 seconds.

    He's incredible. He wasn't tonight. This was a major choke job, but you have to move on to the next one.

    Our bench is terrible. What has happened to Hansbrough, he just looks lost. Maybe it is time to give Pendy his minutes. Not adding some help at the deadline is going to come back to haunt them. Jacking up 27 threes when your shooting like we did tonight is crazy.

    Yes, but but Granger will be the best player the Pacers could get. I'll believe it when I see it happen. I've said all long too many are counting on something that is far from a certainity. Walsh's stance, as always, is he would rather do nothing and watch how things play out. If Herb wants his team to make noise in the playoffs, then Walsh doing nothing and keeping crossed fingers on a healthy contributing Granger wasn't the way to do it. Not to mention the Pacers wouldn't trade the 013 1st to get a player who could help. You know another up and coming Plumlee for next year to sit in a suit to fill out the roster cheaply as many feel is necessary. Just SMH.

    It was the wrong call against Denver and it would have been wrong if they called it here.

    I am not blaming the loss on the refs, let me qualify this by saying that.

    But it was DEFINITELY the wrong call in Denver, long established.

    I am not so sure it wasn't here as well.

    Paul was trying to go up in the air and Pierce moved backwards and cut beneath him in a game-tying situation.

    How is that not worthy of an attempt to go to the line?

    It's a moot point, we screwed ourselves LONG before the 0.5 seconds remaining mark.

    I am just saying, I think that a foul was warranted.
