Thad Young with 10 boards!

I did not check how many turnovers we had.....

 

Thad is really going to help us.  Big Al with some moves in the post.  Niang 12 points...Stuckey 11.  Good stuff Supe21!!

 

I found it.  We only committed 11 turnovers, rebounds 67-50.  So efficient in the first game.

Yeah I was chatting with Gavin last night as I was able to catch the Warriors game late and was thinking our games should be on FS1. I miss the game but seen the highlights and we looked good, even Big Al was scoring haha 

Big Al can score.  Ask Roy Hibbert. :)

I figured some games would be, I was unable to catch last nights game but heard it wasn't on TV.

 

Hey Dude just watched the replay the game started a lil slow but was a decent game , been anxiously waiting for some Blue & Gold & was happy with what I saw rookie Niang was IMO not bad I liked the ball movement & defense looked pretty good , I hated seeing S Hill on the Pelicans I really liked him & Lance seemed like a shadow of his former self I sure am glad he's not on our Pacers .

 

I have a link for ya if you want to check out the game I think most will be impressed with our new look Pacers .

Thanks for the link, yeah I missed the game. I am looking forward to the season. Pacers look strong! Unbelievable how Paul George has recovered from his injury. He is a Top 10 player in the league.

Yeah I was bummed out not being able to see the game when it was on but was really happy once I watched the replay so many new players & the team really did look better , Bird has assembled a team that us long time fans can enjoy .

As I watched it seemed the easy baskets for the pelicans were'nt as easy as years past , & T Young gave me a few Dale Davis flashbacks so i'm looking forward to the Bulls game I have it set up on the DVR & will give it a half hour then join the game in progress I like to FF thru some of the nonsense .

I love our depth and the additions of Teague, Young, and Big Al are huge. Hopefully Turner has a break out season as well, he is a solid player. Paul George will be in the running for MVP because I think we win 55 games or so this season.

That was the steal of that Draft when Bird got him. Bird is great at Drafting. Some people may not know but PG didn't get drafted until 10th in his Draft.

When Bird drafted Paul George, I did not know who he was and I watch a ton of college basketball.

I knew of him but I was like he probably will be Average to Good at best haha Shows how much I know. He is a Top 10 player. When got injured I thought it was over but man he has came back good as ever. He was the best player in the Raptors series, we just blew Game 5.

With the guys around him this year, I think he will get to maybe top 5 in the league.  I hope the Pacers limit their injuries...I would like to see a healthy Stuckey and Brooks on that second unit.  Joe Young played well the other night as well.

I predict 55 wins if we stay healthy. Cavs, Celtics, and Raptors look strong too but I think in the end it's going to come down to PG vs LeBron in the East. Just like old times!

After watching this game I wish we could have got rid of Stuckey. Still the same horrible shot selection and still no defense.

The Pistons won't have Reggie Jackson for an indefinite period of time and they're looking for a point guard.  Maybe we could see if they'll bite on Stuckey (he has ties to Detroit) or Monta?  Not sure what we'd ask for in return though

When he was healthy he had some 30 pt. games for us.  He in my opinion is a strong bench player.

I would be happy with #2.

Yeah I think the Cavs will end up with HCA and the Pacers, Celtics, and Raptors will be close in record. I think the Raptors wont duplicate last seasons 56 wins, they will drop a little but not much. I see us at 55 though, we lost a ton of close games last season and now added depth and a player like Teague.

I totally agree.  We could have been a 2 seed last year with those losses.  I think it was something like 21 games 1-3 points and last quarter failures.

It won't happen. We're not trading anyone this close to the start of the season.

we're a 50-win team....a lot of it comes down to how much Monta Ellis can contribute offensively off the ball

Damn good game tonight by multiple players, We cant expect to shoot nearly as well as we did from 3 often like we did tonight but several players had a good game. The biggest thing I took away from it however was at halftime and Paul George was interviewed he said he learned to find other ways to affect the game. I'm hoping that comes with the pass getting other involved because he can get his shot almost anytime he wants if he is aggressive and doesn't just settle for jump shots

 

I was most impressed by Thad Young and Glenn Robinson

    • The Colts spent big on resigning players this past offseason.  However, I see a lot of roster turnover heading into next offseason with limited cap space.   Round 1 - Edge Princely Umanmielen (Florida) - In four years has 24.5 TFLS including 14.5 sacks.  In 2023 he ranked 4th among Power Five edge defenders in pass-rush win rate (22.2%) and his 42 run-defense stops since 2022 are tied for second. 98% a clone to Laiatu Latu.  Project resign Dayo but Ebukam/Lewis are on the bubble while Genard Avery is a free agent.   Round 2 - WLB Harold Perkins Jr. (LSU) - As a true freshman led all LBs in Power Five linebackers with a 91.0 pass-rush grade and second among all LBs in the country with 18 QB knockdowns (sacks/hits) and tied for second in the country with 4 *.  Since 2014 era, that ranks third best behind Rueben Bain Jr (freshman) in 2023 and Myles Garrett in 2014. EJ Speeds replacement.    Round 3 - S Keon Sabb (Alabama) –From backup to a starter while at Michigan, he made the most of his 360 snaps.  As a sophomore Sabb was only one of six Power Five safeties to earn an 80+ grades in both coverage and run defender.  Sabb replaces Blackmon.   Round 4 - TE Caden Prieskorn (Mississippi) – Started 2023 with a knee injury missing the first three games.  A Memphis transfer, Prieskorn 449 receiving yards were 9th most among all CFB TEs.  His 1051 receiving yards and 527 YAC since 2022 both rank fourth.  Both Mo Allie-Cox and Kylen Granson (project resign) are upcoming FAs.   Round 5 - LB/SAF CJ Taylor (Vanderbilt) – 6’1” 201 pounds. Taylor spent 55% of his snaps near the defensive LOS and in the box in 2023.  In 2022 he was 3rd among SEC safeties with an 84.9 PFF coverage grade, while his 10 pressures ranked 1st.  In 2023 he was third among all LBs in the conference with a 61.8 passer rating allowed.  Reminds me of Jaylon Carlies whom the Colts just drafted in R5P151.  Carlies is currently listed as 3rd string MLB.  Segun Olubi is the backup behind MLB Franklin and has proven enough to resign after this season.  Projected cuts SLB Cameron McGrone (6’1” 236 pounds) (2024 FA) and SLB Liam Anderson (6’3” 236 pounds) (2024 FA).  Add another 30 pounds to Taylor move to SLB.   Round 6 - IDL Joey Slackman (Florida) final 2023 defense grade while at Pennsylvania, 90.1 (3rd), 92.8 run defense grade (1st), pass rush 71.9 (91st), and a 60.5 coverage grade.  Averaging 48.5 TOT a season along with 4 sacks.  Built like Grover Stewart at 6’4” 300 pounds and has the chance to take over Stewart’s job after a year of mentorship.  Places Davis on the bubble and replaces Taven Bryan.  See how well Slackman does moving to Florida versus much stronger competition.  Could see his draft stock improve.   Round 7 - RB-KR Ismail Mahdi (Texas State) –After his first 6 games in 2023 he had 9 KO RET for 280 yards averaging 31.1 yards which ranked 5th as a KR during that timeframe.  In 2023 rushed for 1331 yards on 223 carriers averaging 6.0 with 10 TDs.  Also proven back that can catch averaging 260 yards a season on 25 catches.  Trey Serman (2024 FA) and Tyler Goodson (2024 FA).   UDFAs LS Byron Floyd (PITT) junior – Floyds 81.7 grade this season leads all FBS LS.  Of his 41 LS on both punts/kicks only one has been charted as off-target.  Does have ties to Colts new DL coach.   WR De’Corian Clark (UTSA) – been compared to Alec Pierce.  Got elite athletic skills.  Made Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List at #94.  In HS he jumped 24’8”, hit 22.2 MPH on the GPS and clocked a 4.31 shuttle time.  Also ran a 4.49s-forty time, had a 10’1” broad jump, and a 35” vertical jump while power-clean 345 pounds.  
    • Interesting….   I think Pittsburg getting rid of their 2023 QB room, Pickett and the backup and bringing in Wilson AND Fields for next to nothing is (IMO) the best off-season transformation by any NFL team including the Colts.      Wilson AND Fields for almost nothing?!?   Yes,  please!    FWIW:  Fields is being used in camp as a returner.  Punt for sure and I think kickoffs as well.     
    • Sometimes you win some of these close games and sometimes you lose. We won a game similar to this in Game 3 vs NY when Nembhard hit that 35 foot game winner. That saved our season because NY could have went up 3-0 had that not gone in. Take the good with the bad and move on.
    • #10 is gonna make a huge difference on offense!!!
    • I'm gonna go out there and say 12. I have very high expectations for this team. If we can be competitive with Minshew then I expect a major step forward with hopefully a healthy AR.
