I've pointed it out all season long, but Lance's awareness and intensity just isn't consistently there on defense. He gets caught napping way too much. I don't doubt that his offensive game will continue to improve and excite, but whoever pays $8M+ per year is assuming a great deal of risk on the defensive end. When Lance has games like these, they really snowball as the game continues.
bulls are hitting everything. its annoying me

Well we are really bad on offense and Bulls are hitting everything. Look no further than Rose's 4 threes. It's gonna be a loss this one but I won't lose my sleep over it
That was one awful half. Our D is failing us but they have also hit some crazy, contested shots. I want to see a lot more fight in the second half. Just do your best to get this thing closer and give us a chance at the W. Fight back.
Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.
If there's one good thing about this first-half *** kicking, it's that we get to read hoosierguy's girlish hissy fits and mental breakdowns. I don't know about the rest of you, but those always brighten my night just a little bit.
Well I am a very superstitious fan, so I am going to turn the game off and hope that changes the luck. Who knows miracles can happen.
I doubt it though. Stern saw Bulls fans were getting anxious about their team and he has to keep them buying jerseys and going to games.
Lance is too much of a headcase and Paul George is way too soft for this team to win a title.
Pacers missed a lot of shots they usually make (+6 points)
Bulls made a lot of shots they usually don't (-4 points)
Officiating in Chicago's favor (-6 points)
We would normally be losing this game by only nine points.
This is game 7 of the Finals for the Bulls, and a nice regular season game to have a chance to win (not anymore really) for the Pacers.
They are making damn near everything they shoot, and the Pacers are awful.
Lance I almost just want to give the rest of the night off, he's been absolutely awful for the first time this season.
"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

i haven't conceded defeat yet. a lot of firepower on our team

A 25 point deficit isn't just a fluke. I think if the Pacers are playing well they are still down at least 10. The Bulls have played that well tonight.
On the bright side, the starters are getting beat much worse than the bench. So, go Bird?
