    Well. Another ugly first half. But I have zero doubt we come out with a vengeance and win handily.

    That was a horrible way to close out the first half.

    Lance has been great with the exception of that missed layup.
    He and Scola are the only players who look focused at both ends.

    Blocking out does not require talent it simply requires awareness and effort.

    Josh ****ing Harrelson is playing 10X as hard as any Pacer. Disgusting.

    This reminds me so much of the Miami game. They came out lackadaisical and got punched in the mouth.

    The only given here is the pistons will force the ball to stuckey in the 4th and fall apart. The only question is will they have a big enough cushion.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    At this point why does this team need to be reminded to play hard and with effort? These are professionals with decades of playing experience.

    No wonder the public thinks athletes are overpaid.

    It kind of sucks that Butler is producing and would be going to the bench next week.

    Well, the good thing is that the Pistons are not capable of playing better. If we can "hold" them to just playing average/normal the second half, we should do okay.

    FYI, josh Harrelson is a good backup. Very limited physically but he always gets the most out of what he has. Quality perimeter shooter and gives great effort on the glass. He's been playing like that the whole season.

    we definitely did not get up for this game. it's hard to bring the same kind of focus you'd bring for say the thunder, heat, or spurs in mid december. The only thing saving us is we're a better 2nd half team but even so with the missed free throws and zero effort in the rebounding game makes me a little less hopeful than usual.

    The effort on the boards and the concentration on the line have to be improve. Those are the two key things that we will need if we want to win. Increasing our defensive intensity is also something that has to happen.

    I don't want to hear anyone on the Pacers talking about getting the #1 seed if they are going to play like they don't care.

    We don't need to be implying people don't watch the game

    He likes to throw one hand passes that he telegraphs to the entire arena. I guess, my point is, he usually does make good passes but he then reverts to passes that would get a JV player benched.

    We've already seen from Vogel that salary makes no impact into who he plays. I think if Butler is outplaying Granger, he will still play, although maybe not initially in Granger's first couple games.

    I don't know what their ceiling is, and I've been watching them play every game. Their talent level allows them to play at a much higher level than their record suggests. The immaturity holds them back.

    I can say they certainly played better vs Portland last night than they are now.

    They can go either way, really. Very good or very bad.

    I'm just going to ignore the insult, I follow the NBA very closely. You only remember the bad passes for some reason, he also makes great passes.

    Detroit didn't even play that well. Drummond got in foul trouble and Jennings didn't do much. They can easily blow this game wide open if the Pacers are going to half *** it out there.
