    No, he's not. Not even traveling with the team.

    However, the Nets are 5-1 without him.

    KG is out. But despite these wins for the Nets lately, I don't see them as a very good team. They're doing something right, but with Pierce playing at the 4 they should just get pummeled. They have problems with teams that play with a lot of energy, since their pace is somewhat slow and deliberate. And when their iso's aren't working, they just look slow and old. Most of the wins they got, felt more like the other teams just couldn't get shots to fall.
    yay, we're going back to the play-offs!

    Yeah, the Blazers have fallen pretty hard. However, the playoffs is generally more about match-ups than anything, so you never know.

    Nets are gonna be a tough out for anyone. Is Lopez out for the season? Hopefully they can hang on and win the game.

    Yeah I do not want to play the Nets or Bulls. As is we'd play one of them in the semis.

    Lopez is done for the year. Heat have Denver coming in Friday. Doesn't get any easier for them. If Only Denver had their full squad (Gallinari, Nate, McGee).

    Pacers better take Philly seriously on Friday. They will be hyped to try and end their 17 game losing streak against the best team in the East.

    It's 18 games. And the 76ers have no interest in winning basketball games this season.

    I'm not really worried about losing to the Nets or Bulls in a 7 game series, they would be tough, but if we're looking to avoid anyone before the ECF then we're not the contender I believe we are.

    With the Clippers starting to emerge as a dark horse, I've decided that it might be a good idea to keep an eye on them, as well.

    I think this really shows that in a 82 games season all teams are going to go through it. We lost 4 games in a row and are tied for OKC for 2nd/3rd

    This is the year where Chris Paul really needs to deliver in the playoffs. He's never made it to the Conference Finals. Granted he has always played in the loaded West, but this is the year where he needs to put that team in the Conference Finals with a shot at an NBA Finals appearance. With Doc, Blake Griffin playing at the top of his game, and a decent supporting cast, everything is there for a deep playoff run.

    I still have Pacers getting the #1 seed. I don't think Miami cares as much as they believe they can win anywhere in the playoffs. I think as long as they know they get the #2 seed, they will take it and go in the playoffs rested. Pacers may not get the best overall record in the league, but I say they got #1 in the East

    Players care about winning games when it comes to playing the best teams. They will come out and take their shot against us. Players always view these games as a barometer. They want to play well against the best.

    Plus they will want to beat the team that got Turner.

    They can try as hard as they want, but the FO gutted their already lacking talent roster. Only need to worry about TYoung.

    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?

    The 76ers are trying to lose basketball games. You bury them in the 1st quarter, they won't give a lick of effort the remaining 3. Even if you don't, their team has never heard of defense. After watching that team play multiple times in the past two weeks, there's really no need to worry about the 76ers. It's clear what their motives are for the remainder of the season.

    Good work. I need to bring my stuff up to date.
    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!
