    Default Pacers Magic Post Game thread.. Final game of the season

    It seems like we should at least have a post game thread for the final game of the season so I guess I'll do it.

    Great game and nice to see the contribution from our bench players. I'd like to see Vogel find some minutes for Copeland while we have a lead to see if we can open it up sometime. The guys looked like they were having fun.
    56-26 The same record we had the year we went to the finals. Does someone want to look up where that ranks all time?

    Off to the finals again. Time to stop complaining and get behind this team.

    It looks like the chemistry is back, which will go further than any tactical move.

    I hope we can ride the wave of momentum into the playoffs.

    Rasual was great, Cop3 was solid, Scola looked feisty as all heck, LaVoy was fantastic...

    I am very happy with our bench over the last week or two. They can be difference makers for us.

    Lets - Real season begins!

    In our NBA history, it's tied for third all time.

    1. 03-04 (61 wins)

    2. 97-98 (58 wins)

    3. 99-00 & 13-14 (56 wins)

    Really hope we have the cap to be able to keep LaVoy next year. I can easily seem him cracking into our rotation if we can keep him. I really love his game I think he is just a very smooth operating big man.

    It's good to get the bench some confidence and it's great that Scola and Evan have been in good form the last week or two. I don't doubt our starters will generally hold their own or win their matchups but a game or two where scola is hot from midrange or Evan makes some big plays can change an entire series.
    Goodbye Captain, My Captain. I wish you had the chance to sink or swim with your ship on its quest for the "ship".

    The problem is that we have Ian and Roy under contract at Center and LaVoy will have trouble guarding the hybrid 4's. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy and he is a good 12th man, but I am not sure he is a rotational player for a real good team.

    Tonight marked one of the finest moments in Rasual Butler's long career.
    Honestly I never knew he had it in him.

    This was a great win and I loved watching every second of it.

    I have more confidence in Cope and Watson shooting the 3 than anybody else on the team. If we get ousted early and our FG% and inability to spread the floor is a big reason, I will be so disappointed with Frank. Hopefully he saw something in these games that the bench played big minutes.

    It will get some traction at some point before the Saturday game but it's probably going to end up as one of the shortest.

    He looks a lot better than Roy does right now.

    Don't know the final stats, but I thought he looked really good.

    Well the game didn't mean a lot but in spite of our recent slide it did cap off one of our best ever seasons.
    We've had way too much bitterness going on with the slide and I'm not saying it's not understandable and I was upset at first myself. In the end this was a great season. We start anew now and I still believe we stand a very good chance of getting to the finals and then anything could happen. I think Hibbert is going to come through when we need him and maybe Paul and Lance will get serious about playing defense again now that really counts.

    He had some nice pull up jumpers, but as usual he struggled reading the defense, made some poor passes and looked clueless on defense.

    Par for the course.

    Did you watch the same game I did? He shows athleticism and shot making and even rebounding that Roy flat out doesn't have right now. Plus, he doesn't throw up shots that have no chance. Last time I checked Lavoy had a double double tonight. Don't think Roy can do that right now no matter who it's against. Not saying Roy can't turn it around in the playoffs, but it wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't.

    LaVoy had a good night but he'll never be able to change the game the way Hibbert does. I see a lot more 3/4 in Lavoy then I do a 4/5.

    I'll give you that when Hibbert is on his game, but right now he's not changing any games. Hopefully he puts on his big boy pants now that the playoffs are starting. Lavoy still looks way more efficient and confident on offense to me right now than does Hibbert.

    Hope the fact that the other team that won 56 went the finals in no coincidence.

    Heck....what bench player isn't playing great? Sometimes I think Frank should move the whole starting lineup to the bench and start the bench players. Just kidding.....sort of
