    Can I dare to dream of winning back to back in SA and OKC?

    Well.... we'll see.

    I'll catch the game on DVR when I get home tonight.

    Olden Polynice may not have made the Hall of Fame, but he did impersonate a cop multiple times, which always earns bonus points.

    The city of Oklahoma City doesn't find your cow-based game thread funny or appropriate. Luckily, I don't think they know about electricity or the Internet.

    Denari said the TV truck got caught in a traffic jam and couldn't make it to OKC. They found an old truck in OKC that'll send an SD feed to Houston that'll be upconverted to HD. So we'll see how this broadcast goes.

    A LOT. But that just means that I hope that PG24 is able to find the open man.

    Cool Re: 12/8/2013 Game Thread #21: Pacers Vs. Thunder

    Tandem VS Team

    Paul George & Kevin Durant!!!!
    Ok we're all salivating for this.
    Paul will certainly carry almost all of the defensive burden against the splendid KD. The reverse however will not likely be true.
    The greatest challenge for Paul will be to play his usual brand of stellar D WITHOUT foul trouble. Kevin gets exactly twice the foul shots per game as PG. In fact it is the most significant difference statistically between them. Kevin's going to get some home cookin' We need Paul on the floor.

    Po' George Hill against Russell the blur.
    Another big night for our home town kid. With DRose down there's really no one else with the slash and burn athleticism of RW. We need a lot from Hill tonight. He must be our point man to knock the shine off one of the worlds best transition games. In the half court he must just TRY his best to stay in front of his guy long enough, and consistently enough, to keep our bigs out of foul trouble.
    We need him to keep a steady pace. The Pacer's pace. We should look to win in the nineties. OKC will give us some shots. They wanna run and play something almost like street ball. We do not want that. A loose couple of quarters followed by one of our droughts and we're done. Irritate them with a slower pace. A grinding game will kill the fun in it for them and they'll lose focus.

    Battle of the BAMF's
    Statistics may show this year that we come up a little short here. Serge is quite a physical specimen. Young and strong. Taller than DWest has a plays with a chip on his shoulder. Likes to block shots. He may get a block or two on our guy but he doesn't scare me. David has a good history against OKC. I think he put like 25 a game on them last year. David's long arms and experience makes up the difference here and we can depend on him to hold up his end here.

    Mount Hibbert
    They start KPerkins. Formerly one of the best post defenders in the league and still very capable. His minutes are not quite those of a starter. He shares time with Steven Adams, a rookie who has been somewhat effective in limited minutes. He gives them 5 and five pretty quick. OKC will also play some small lineups. sometimes with out a center, sometimes with three guards. We should be able to find minutes for West and Scola together if we want to. They are the leagues number 1 rebounding team but there is no reason for them to punk us on the glass if we play with energy.

    Other than their big three Ok likes to spread out the minutes. Ten or eleven guys will see significant time. They have some pretty good players to do it. Guards Reggie Jackson, and Jeremy Lamb both score near the double figure mark. Sefolosha starts at shooting guard for them. He's a good defender. Look for him to get a lot of time on PG. We'll also see Nick Collison, Perry Jones, Derrick Fischer, and probably even Thebeet and Ryan Gomes.

    Make no mistake about it though this is essentially a two man team. Serge will contribute no doubt but this team flies on Durant and Westbrook.
    Those two WILL get their points. They will shoot until they do. We must make them struggle for it. Make them take a lot of shots to do it and starve them for the ball. Slow the pace. Make it one and done for them and they will crack.
    Don't foul out!!

    This is the game I thought most likely we would lose. Mostly because win or lose we'd have no legs after last night in San Antonio. Funny how things worked out! We were able to rest our guys just a little. I hope it was enough. We are a better TEAM. I am not worried about these guys in a series but this game is pretty unpredictable. If we are not too wore out I see us putting together a nice little 8-10 point lead by the third quarter and then holding on. If we're gassed it could get ugly.

    I'll go with:
    Pacers 99
    Thunder 94

    Looks like FSI was able to combo with OKC's team to cover the game, I give kudos to those guys for helping out.

    I think they're separating after the commercial, they just wanted to show they were working together, I'm guessing you'd see the same camera angles and everything that the OKC game will have.

    I'm not exactly sure though.
