Boston is hard to beat but sixers is much better team overall 

True cfc.........but Milwaukee is better than Boston, too and they're about to go home

IMO Paul George failed at giving an honest 100% effort every night on both ends of floor and being a leader . He has the me me me syndrome, nothing against you my friend I like you . that is and has b

Mark is on an island here. I wouldn't waste too much energy on changing his mind. This team is going to the promise land.. woot.

Love how all the mainstream sports media outlets are talking about what went wrong with the Cavs and LeBron instead of praising the Pacers.

The big day. Game 7. Hope the Pacers can win. I don’t see it though. Prove me wrong guys!

I had us winning in 7 before the series started but I still don't trust the NBA or the REFS if the game is close at the end. Depending on how the game goes I will try not to use that as an excuse if we lose but if there are obvious bad calls or bad non-calls then I will definitely talk about it. We can make history today and give LeBron his first ever 1st Round loss in his career.

Pacers are the better team. There’s no doubt about that. But the Cavs have LeBron. And that’s the difference

The key to the W will be Oladipo, no doubt.

He just needs to play Good, nothing special. Cant go 2-15 for example. If we get 20 efficient Points out of him and we don't turn the ball over as a team, we can win. They have no answer for Turner or Sabonis either, haven't all series. I would feed both early and often. IMO a huge part to whoever wins will come down to who makes their 3's. They live and die by the 3. Hopefully Korver and JR both are off.

We are not going to get many calls and LeBron is that's the reality. How we react to that will go a long way in deciding the game. We have to keep playing and not get caught up in what we can't control. If we take care of the ball, REBOUND, and MAKE our free throws we should win the game. We are the better team. We don't need a hero we just need our guys to play like they have all season. If Vic has it going again look out. I think Bogey has a solid game. I feel good about the game.

Warriors blew out the Pelicans. They don't even need Steph for that series. Regarding the C's, I figured as much. I had them winning in 7.

NOLA has to play GSW differently.

They tried to run with them and now they know they wont be able to do that. Delusions of grandeur, maybe.

 

Take it into a half court game and make them defend in small space...

Now, with Steph back, it will be tougher,,,..but slow the game down..or get swept

I smell sweep. Pelicans may be able to get 1 in NO, not sure though?

FWIW, Tim Legler picked us to win Game 7 today. Most haven't.

If the game was in Indy, many would...   A lot of things have to go right for the Cavs today.

..They have to slow the game down....this is almost a back-to-back...

.....I keep saying this but the faster the game is the better we'll do

Yeah we need to run them off the floor from the beginning. Run run run. Use our youth.

Exactly. We have to control the tempo of the game. LBJ is going to get his (the refs will see to that) 

If we run the rest of the Cavs they cant keep up with our tempo.

Open shots off of the break.  Kick it out to Bogie on the left top or left corner.  He needs to get to the foul line too or get a lay up to get him going. Same with Vic.

 

Those here who know me also know I like that punch him when he's down and keep him down philosophy....this is game 7.  we have plenty of fouls to give even if we have to bring big Al and Leaf.  I want a 1980's Game!!  

 

Who's with me.  Go Pacers.  You guys are the better TEAM!!!!!  Bmc

   and we have to go against George Hill if he plays...make him defend....and challenge him physically if he plays the point...same with Kevin Love

......We are 100% healthy.....and they are not

 

And same with Lebron.  Bogie set the tone for Game 6 with a take down.  Same mentality today!  I am ready to turn on pregame.

Yeah this doesn't look good. It is still early but down 11 on the road in Game 7 isn't good. If we lose I am not even going to let it bother me. LeBron fans can brag all they want but how can a LeBron fan actually brag when 99% of them said Cavs in 4 or 5. Nobody is beating Golden St anyway or Houston if Houston somehow beats Golden St so it's all a moot point anyway in the long run.

    • We've got some decent value at the 5 and dime store.   Great bargains Rhodes Moore   Good bargains TJ Carrie Wilson
    • They are talking about next year's picks, which one (either 1st or 2nd) is conditionally going to Philly. Doubt they can contractually use either in a trade for this year (unless it's with Philly). Perhaps there's contract language that says we can deal our 2nd, but if we do, Philly would automatically get our 1st.
    • What is his role?     So does everybody on the team who doesn't want to be traded because of whatever Easterby did not seeing things as well as Watson and 5 players who were let go by the team?  Why are the 5 seeing it correctly and the 150 not?      
    • Instead of trying to split the atom on how stats are measured, let's keep it simple and just apply basic logic.    Should we not expect a 31 year old to lose speed? Should we not expect a tiny guy who's losing his speed, to struggle getting the same separation he relied on all these years? Even if you disagree with the majority of fans (who think he's slowed), wouldn't the trained eyes of the coaches know better? And if TY still had it (and Rivers was at fault), wouldn't TY get a better/longer deal than 1 year / 8M? Should we believe TY's stats are simply wrong, while most of the other pass catchers are grading better at separation while getting the same balls, by the same QB? Are stats out to get TY, or is Philip just bad throwing to TY and good to everyone else? And nobody saying Rivers is great. But simply other pass catchers are grading better with Rivers, than TY. TY relied on his speed all these years (along with route running). He's losing that speed, and now has to rely on route running (for tough yards) and mismatches (seam and bad DBs) for the majority of his highlights. There's no mystery here. It's just getting harder for him. I really hope he can squeeze one more 1000 yard season out for the Colts.   
    • You are having a different conversation than I am.   I'm talking about the narrow issue of Watson possibly being traded, and citing the reasons he supposedly stated for wanting to be traded.  I show you articles because you insinuate that I am wrong about those reasons.    What the culture is or is not in the HOU organization is not relevant, because no articles have cited culture as being the reason.    Its also not relevant to Watson, because it seems to me that if these adverse conditions were long standing since the time AJ and Foster were in the locker room, then those conditions must not have have been a big deal to Watson in September when he chose to extended his playing time with such a bad organization run by such awful political owners.  That must not be the reason he wants a trade.
