    That's pocket change to him. Glad he didn't get suspended.

    Glad he's not missing any time, and the fine wasn't that hefty.

    NBA has gone soft. The elbow wasn't much at all. It was a "get the **** off me" elbow. Wasn't trying to injure the golden boy

    Don't they wait to announce suspensions until an hour before the next game?

    I honestly think that was kinda crap.
    Does it warrant a Flagrant? Yeah, sure.
    Flagrant II ejection and a fine? Hell no.
    If you are going to call that, at least make it consistent damnit.

    I can never tell if you are just joking with this or if you truly are this paranoid? If it the former I'm not sure I get the humor if it's the latter all I can say is you really need to come into the current age. That was almost a decade ago, this group of Pacers is beloved by both the locals and yes even now the national media is catching on.

    The NBA is not out to get us. I told you last night he wouldn't get suspended and he didn't. There is nothing there to suspend.

    Agreed, objectively we've been pretty damn hyped, the refs let us play physical even with the Heat, and our individual players get tons of respect, heck we even got our own documentary which was basically 30 minutes talking about how great we are. We need to get over this little brother syndrome we've been suffering from.

    This really makes the Detroit loss continue to sting. We could be unbeaten at home right now.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    West isn't a repeat offender which is why there was no suspension. If it were JR Smith or or someone like that, there'd be a suspension. Past track record means a lot.

    That's too much pressure to remain unbeaten at home. OKC lost their first home game to the hapless Nets. The Detroit loss was a case of look-ahead-ism anyways. Because after them next up was Miami.

    Elbow to the jaw? WTF ?? unless it occurred way before the entanglement .. West's arm never even touched Griffin's face .... Wests arm went across where Griffins head was but Blake had ducked and it went skimming right by him... .. Or am I missing something?

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    All I can say is, Blake should be glad that West wasn't really trying to hurt him or we'd still be looking for his head.
