Old school basketball is an Indiana tradition and the Pacers are very good at it.

'Indiana basketball'  exactly..

 

Boston plays like us defensively but they dont have the shot blocker and the low post 'moves' guy we do. We dont have anybody like Jason Tatum or Kyrie (although you can argue whether the latter is an undisputed virtue) .

 

Philadelphia? I dont know. So undisciplined.

If they forbid Embid from shooting 3s ordered him to get in the paint on every posession, got a real lead guard, slowed the game down and put Ben Simmons at forward....with the shooters they have outside.  No one would beat them.

 

But they dont have any discipline and Milwaukee seems to have surpassed them

Left ankle sprain, nothing major but he will miss a game or 2.

Back to back games Wednesday (Dallas) and Thursday (Minnesota)

There's no urgency to get him back Thursday..

 

...The last two years lve wondered why we paid good money for a veteran third center when we have two quality young centers. .

And again..things happen and we need the veteran 3rd center for four or five games late in the year.

 

...Even with two regulars out we have nothing but veterans in our top-10 rotation.

WE should be OK

All of sudden...every Pacer is 'Mr. T' the last two games..

..and we're down 93-91 with 5:00 left

 

Portland 97, Boston 92..final

If we could rally to win and improve to 41-21, we'd be 4 games up, on Boston (37-25) with 20 to play.

Boston is really struggling, that is a good thing. "Mr T" - Bogey needs some gold chains and he would fit the description :funny:

We gave up too many 3's. They hit 8 in the 4th Qtr, REFS were awful too. I guess Bogey pee'd in their Wheaties :banana:. Tough loss.

O'Quinn had 3 fouls in the second quarter

..Myles had 5 most of the 4th..and Luca got a couple of calls against Matthews.

 

Thta's playing on the road I guess

   110-101  final..They hit 16 3s...

 

Short two regulars, it was a good effort.

But we dont have a lot of firepower when everybody's playing

Not having Sabonis really hurt tonight with Myles just getting back and the foul trouble. TJ has looked more and more like a NBA player. We need more from the PG position I think DC and CoJo combined for 14 & 7.

 

We couldve used the W but we have trouble getting out of Dallas with one. Wes really wanted it.  He has been what I expected. His 3pt shooting and D  coming off the bench when Vic is back next year would be huge. Hopefully the run he's getting will help make that happen.

No doubt about that.....

We need some bench guys who dont play much (leaf, Holiday) to play a lot and do what we hope they can do

 

But Karl Anthony might score 50 tonight

 

Holiday is missing every shot. At least Leaf looks good so far.

Holiday is missing shots I'm pretty sure he can make easily

 

He's just trying too hard. Hasnt played in awhile. Calm down ( I mean Aaron should calm down, MTC. Not you)

 

You're right

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
