    I agree, but also if anyone cares.....Miami has to win 3 more games to catch us. And we have to lose 3 more games to match them. And Miami's next two I believe are at home against San Antonio and OKC. Without Wade, they will lose one or both of those games.
    Wade played today and they won fairly easily.
    In other news, the Suns were beaten AT HOME by the Wizards and are getting killed by the Cavs as we speak.

    It would also be nice if every West team we face didn't shoot lights out against us.
    Not surprising if you look at the defense of our guards.
    I do think Frank would make adjustments if we had face a team like this in a seven game series. He doesn't change our normal defense for a reg. season game and sometimes it hurts.

    Yes I know. Spurs are injury plagued though. No Green, no Kwahi, no Splitter. They had a guy out there today I think on a 10 day contract. That's how banged up they are.

    Because our goal this season is to get past Miami and win the championship. If Granger cannot contribute off the bench at a high level, then he's a liability. Stuckey is an expiring. We could trade Danny for an expiring contract of a player far more productive than he is. Stuckey looks better than Granger these days. Plus, Stuckey backing up Lance would allow Copeland to back up PG and finally get some minutes. There are also the Thornton's, Nick Young's, and Jeff Green's of the world. But the first two have 1 year remaining on their deals. Green has 2 years.
    Granger is not going anywhere. He's known for starting slowly in "normal" seasons. So starting slowly this season coming off an injury is to be expected. Yet, Granger has looked quite good on occasion. He will likely become very consistent.

    But let's say you are right. Let's assume for a moment that Granger is not with us after the trade deadline. Your assumption that they would then give those minutes to Cpeland is totally off base. Copeland would get a few, but Vogel would primarily go with Rasual Butler because he is the veteran, would be more consistent and can be better trusted.

    I have no idea why you even bring up Granger in this post game thread. He had very little, if not nothing, to do with our loss in this game. For the most part, the same can be said for nearly all of our previous losses as well. Your proposed solution is way off base.

    Totally disagree many coaches favor vets Vogel isnt one of them. He has proven he will play the best player not the one who has been playing the longest.

    Wait you mean the Spurs lost to another elite team? No way! They've only been doing it all year and are still a favorite to come out of the West!

    Spurs are playing without 2 starters and up until recently without 3 starters.

    The Suns did pull the game out against the Cavs.

    A lot of people questioning the effort in this game, I'm not sure they really understand what it's like to play basketball in that altitude. I went to college in Colorado (go Rams!) and when I first got there it felt like someone was squeezing my windpipe when I walked up a flight of stairs too fast, much less playing basketball. If you're not acclimated it doesn't matter who you are, you won't be ready to walk into Denver and come out of the gate on fire. When we went to OT the night before I was absolutely certain it was a loss. The fact that we almost pulled it out was what surprised me.

    We are built as a playoff team.
    In the east particularly that means size and strength.
    We're pretty much at the top of the food chain in that department and that bodes well for us.

    However we have our weaknesses.
    1st among'st them is we look like plodding oaf's against the sprightliest programs.

    Not to worry because like I said playoff basketball requires size and strength.
    A decent five seed in the West can handle with ease the teams that drive us nuts.

    And then THEY (or their betters) will have to handle us.

    We don't need to change our style to beat jump-shooting dervishes, they'll be weeded out for us.

    ...Except maybe that OKC squad. We may have to uproot them ourselves.

    I spend a lot of my free time at work day dreaming about ways that the Pacers could conceivably win over the Thunder, so far I've come up with:

    A. Hope another team beats them in the West.
    B. TBD.

    Has to be said.... 20 back to backs this season for the Pacers. That is one of the toughest schedules in the league, regardless of opponent. Half way through the season the Pacers have played almost as many B2B as some teams will play the entire season. If it weren't for this scheduling nightmare the Pacers would probably still be on pace to beat the 72 wins record.

    The one thing I do fear is that month by month the Pacers are showing their weakness and have not really adjusted much to it. THey can simply get ran out of the building early on in games. So a disciplined team can run on us for 48 minutes and not let us crawl our way back into.

    I'm concerned the offense is becoming too guard oriented, lance and Paul are big talents but the way they have beat up teams is inside out, wears down the opponent slows the game down and they get to the free throw line. It was no coincidence that when the runs were made they had lance in the post passing to cutters. Also west going against his man, hibbert has been missing on offense but they need to get him consistent touches in the paint. Paul is still the number 1 option without a doubt but they need to be getting west and hibbert touches in the paint.

    The back to backs and road games fatigue the bigs much quicker than at home, Hibbert and West get dead tired much faster, partly the reason why Roy is fouling more. Luckily as been what's said, there are no B2B's in playoffs, and the game slows down in the playoffs, even for those west teams.
    "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."
