    Heat have lost alot of games because they are resting players though. We aren't losing games because we are choosing to rest players. That was SUPPOSED to be one of the reasons we would finish with a better record.
    …but the heat HAVE to rest players. It's not like they're just randomly choosing to. Wade cannot play every game or he will blow up.

    The only difference between this year and last year is that the Pacers made it public they were gunning for the 1 seed from day 1. It's just part of the season that drags. We all knew it would come at some point. By the time the postseason rolls around this team will load up and do what they need to to win. That's when it matters.

    .600 on the whole is the mark of a good team. What would you call a team that goes .600 through an admitted rough patch? Meaning, if this is the downturn, things will even themselves out. the law of averages blah blah. Even our "struggles" this year have been good for .600.

    Heat are 9-6 in their last 15, so getting to .800 will be even tougher.......

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    If .600 is the worst we can do and you're still only calling us good, IDKWTTY.

    Don't you know that's only because the Heat Don't Care. As soon as they decide to, they'll go on another 27-game win streak. It's simple for them.

    What are you talking about? Im saying if we dont start playing better then we are a good team. Its not too farfetched. How often do teams playing .600 ball make it to the finals?

    Does that earn them extra wins? All I care about is the total amount of wins because I'm confident our team can contend with anyone we would potentially face in the playoffs.

    I'm not worried, but I'm getting uncomfortable. We are up 1 single game on the Heat now.

    If this team needs HC just for the what if of a game 7... Then they aren't ready to dethrone the champs. Not saying it's not important but that's not what these championship hopes need to be relied on

    It's not bad, it's just not championship-caliber. If your standards for success are "not bad," then all is right in the basketball world. If your standards for success are championship-caliber, we'll then, we've got some serious problems.

    At this point, not accepting that there's serious cause for concern regarding this team is nothing less than flat-out denial. These aren't minor nitpicks. We just had an awful (relative to our first half) second half of the season, and we've started the playoffs by being dominated by a 38-win team on our homecourt.

    If you're not panicking by now, you're not being reasonable.

    I was out of town and did not watch the game. I am not that surprised although I thought it would be closer. The team is still clearly broken and it's too late to fix it.

    Yes, playoff series are best of seven but given the last month and a half this series might as well be over. I have no confidence that they can win another game after that third quarter. I think that these guys hate each other so much at this point that they want the season to be over so that they don't have to be together anymore. At the very least someone said or did something to Roy and he has been in a months-long temper tantrum. But I think that certain members of this team are no longer on speaking terms. I thought that Roy Hibbert would be a long-term Pacer and a face of the franchise but now I want him traded. I feel strange criticizing him for not being mentally tough enough to play NBA basketball because I know that I sure as hell am not, but he is not strong enough mentally to play at this level.

    The first part of your post is spot on. Especially true is that some of the players despise each other. If that were NOT true, they would NOT have called it fatigue. They would have stressed how well they get along and are supporting each other through a tough stretch. But that's not what they said. They made an excuse.

    Also, I'm sorry, but I was 25 at one time. You don't get tired, ok? Not like that at least. It is what is known as a LAME excuse. Insulting in fact.
