Hopefully this game shows the blind fans that we are nowhere near a top 4 team in the East. I'll be impressed with this team if they make the playoffs because I did not expect to get anywhere near that before the season.

 

I've seen too many Pacers fans overrating this team recently.

I have been watching the Pacers every since they played at the Fairgrounds. I may be old but I am not blind.

They won lmao

Yeah but the point still stands when we struggle like that at home against a 3-win team with a 9 game losing steak.

 

This team is overrated but I guess that is what some fans do to teams that are playing well. They play hard though. Dipo is fearless.

The point is they are real young and play like a team is suppose to play. No one said they are going to win the east or a championship but they have the start of a very good team. Add a piece or two and yes they can compete with the top 5 teams in the league, not just the east.

I will say that part of the reason the team came out flat for the first 3 quarters was probably the crowd not giving them that juice that usually comes at a home game.

 

I've been to 5 games already this year. People need to start buying tickets and supporting the team.

We need that strong SF to put us over the edge

They keep playing this good the fans will come. Also with them playing this good they will draw that big time player here as long as the owner will spend the money to make it happen.

No one is disagreeing with this obviously. The part I bolded is what I've been seeing people say we can do this year and that is simply not true.

 

Adding a piece or two obviously we can. I've already changed my position from the start of the season when I thought there was no way we were making the playoffs and that is what everyone on here besides Marc said as well.

He is a lot more clutch than PG ever was too. Hes made more clutch plays this year with us than PG did in his entire career with us

True that's why I don't get why people think PG is such a perfect player dude didn't do hardly crap his last few years here and was hardly ever clutch

Wasn't he like 1/15 on potential game winning/tying shots or something like that? 

Prolly right I'm honestly more impressed with Vic so far then I ever was with Paul. Prolly cause I had high hopes for PG and he let me down my hopes for Vic were not as high so I'm more impressed.

I remember in one of those Cavs playoffs games just a year ago when he tossed the ball to someone else to shoot a last second shot. 

He was getting double-teamed so he passed it to CJ Miles and expected to get it right back. PG wasn't clutch but he wasn't scared of the moment.

PG is a great player, just not a leader. He plays well where he is at because he don't have to be the man.

Struggling against the 3 win Bulls at home with rest? Yeah I'm positive.

 

They could get in the playoffs which is impressive in itself like I said in the post, but they cannot compete with the top teams in either conference and they won't have that kind of record.

We are better than I thought we would be actually. I think we can be a 7 or 8 Seed. Maybe get a Good Draft pick and add another Good player to the Roster next season and go from there.

I think the main reason we are Good so far this season is, Dipo is basically playing like PG did last year, putting up huge numbers which I didn't expect. We basically have PG still haha .The players we have now mainly Collison, Bog, and Sabonis seem to love playing here too. They are being used properly. Lance loves it here too, that makes a difference when you play for a team that you enjoy. Makes for a great culture when you are having fun. Players give 100% as well in that type of environment. Turner is finally shaking off the cobwebs too and starting show signs of better play in spurts.

He is out playing PG here last year by an extremely large margin

Why don't you think we can be top 4 in the East? The Raptors are arguably the 3rd best team behind Boston and Cleveland. We split home and home with them. I don't think it's that crazy to think we can run with Washington Milwaukee Detroit and Philly. The top 4 may be our ceiling this season but after what 24 games our record says we are right there. 

 

This team should continue to get better as the year progresses. Turner needs to find his groove. GR3 will be back giving us another option on the wing. Bogy is an underrated player. It looks like we have a rapidly rising star.  I see no reason we can't hang around that second tier in the east. 

 

That was a cold blooded 3 Dipo hit. He wants to take big shots and has the inner drive to be a special player. I think the year in OKC helped him understand what it takes to be great. 

 

We were caught flat tonight probably looking ahead to Friday vs Cleveland. The Bulls deserve credit they were able hit shots to stop runs throughout the second half. It seemed every time we had it down under double digits they hit a 3. We continued to fight through it closed it down on a 19-4 run to get the W. 

 

Let's see what it looks like Friday vs the Cavs.

Got a big one coming Friday night. Cavs have won 13 straight, I actually like our chances since it's here and they are due for a loss.

I think we are overachieving and teams like the Raptors, Wizards (When John Wall gets back), Pistons, Bucks and 76ers are better than us and maybe even the Heat as well. 

 

There were certain times last year where people thought we were going to be a top 4 seed too. I just don't believe it.

My gut is telling me we will be an 8 Seed/maybe 7 Seed and get in as of now. The East unfortunately has really improved a lot so just getting in would be a good accomplishment after trading PG.

Optimism is blind and pessimism is accurate? Okay.

 

I dont think anyone can accurately tell how good we are ..all new team

Yes mark people still seriously think PG is this great 2 way player that is a league leading clutch player when in reality he isnt he is a very good role player Vic is clearly out playing him and what he did here last year and it's not even close

    • I listened to the Bring the Juice podcast on YouTube and they had several good points about Kenny. I expect some kind of guarantee to change but I don’t want the Colts don’t give him a new contract. Mainly for setting the precedent of renegotiating with two years left. Kenny is a good player and the type the Colts want on the roster. His holdout is really tame and I understand why he is doing it. I expect more hard contract negotiations in the Colts future bc this roster is loaded with talent and not everyone can be paid. 
    • I agree….  I think his timing is terrible.   I may be defending Moore, but only up to a point.    I’ve publicly said I do not want Ballard to give him a new deal.  And I made a post that said it’s being reported the Colts have no intention of re-doing his deal.     But….   I think there is a pathway to compromise so everyone saves face and everyone’s gets a little something.  Guarantee his final two years against injury.  Give him that protection.   Doesn’t cost the Colts a single dollar.   Moore gets his money guaranteed, the Colts can say they didn’t re-do his deal.   I think that’s win-win.     But I worry Kenny is getting bad advice….  We will all see what happens when there is a mandatory camp, which is soon.  Does Moore show or not?    I hope for his sake he does. 
    • I didn’t have access to that info at the time , but it’s what have you done for me lately league. Why ask for a new contract when you had a down year 
    • And yet, his pass defense grades have been in the 70’s, until this past year…. Where he graded in the mid-60’s, which PFF says is average to above average.   Yet somehow you have chosen NOT to post that info in numerous posts in this thread.   Only the bad stats.   I wonder why?   Why wouldn’t you post all the info instead of just the info that supports your position?  Hmm?  
    • Not necessarily , colts played nickel def 79-80% of the time meaning he might be on the outside 10% of the time if that. Also PFF scores does say he a liability in coverage He was number one targets at 125 and number one in receptions allowed at 87 If we take into account his 9 PD and 4 int, 25 passes mixture of drops bad passes. He excelled at tackling. But let’s be honest you rather had a corner that great at coverage defending Wr which is a corners job vs one that good tackling but struggles to do his primary job which is covering Wr
