Offensively, i like Turner facing the basket shooting and Sabonis with his back to the basket making moves and rebounding.

Defensively, if Sabonis guards the other team's center, it frees up Turner to roam and block shots.

 

the problems comes agianst teams that go 'small'

You could have Myles guarding Kevin Durant at Golden State next week.

 

But I agree. When it s time to sign Sabonis (after next year), he'll get starters money and then we wont be able to afford him Myles and Thad Young.

Thad has, maybe, one more year with us...so why sign him to 2 or 3 years guaranteed?

It depends on what he wants.  I think the team with Matthews instead of Evans and Oladipo back and healthy could win the East and the Warriors are going to keep winning until they break up.  If someone interesting pops up to take the place of Thad if he doesn't think Indy is his future (though I really can't see him leaving and Sabonis will demand starters money, but this team really is A TEAM.  I would be surprised if they didn't try to find a way to keep the band together.  Just the fringe guys will be traded in an out, whether it is Collison, Joseph etc. will remain to be seen.  I could see maybe signing someone younger at those positions, but not sure they would be as consistent as Collison in particular.

Sure hope they can pull tonight's game out.   We could lose 7 of the next 10 games if not.

So far so good.

Not much defence in this game.  Gonna be well over 100 points per team.

Well, that certainly turned quickly. 

Nothing we haven't already dealt with, though.

Up 11 early but down 55-48 at the half

as well as Sabonis and Turner played together against OKC, they were almost as bad defensively together tonight

To be fair, I do not remember the last time the Pacers won in Portland.

 

 

Lillard really can make shots from  anywhere, cant he?\

Thad Young. Cory Joseph and Tyreke all have not scored

FINAL: Denver 111, Boston 105...that helps us

 

Unfortunately, the Pacers never seem to capitalize.

Another game where they are getting outnumbered by a more talented team. Frustrating to watch, but I've accepted that we will be the 5th seed playing the Celtics in the first round.

A logical coach would think to put in Leaf and Holiday if the offense is lacking a spark.

Leaf was very soft tonight and well, do we really want to put Holiday in against Lillard?

106-98 loss.....down to 44-27 with 11 to go..

Refs had a hard time with jump balls, blocked shots and carrying the ball but we shot 42% again. Not good enough on the road. 

 

Myles had 28 and 10 and McDermott had 14 in 16 minutes

\\But Thad Young scored 2..Cory Joseph scored zero

 

Portland and Denver..we aren't as good as they are.

On to Los Angeles

The team seems to be on a destination for the 5th seed.     Bummer because home court is something they need bad.

 

They said in the game that the Pacers have gone 30 years without a losing record at home.

Not all is lost, we just have 1 more game on this dreaded 4 game west coast trip and we are still a game ahead of Boston for 4th spot at 44-28. We will obviously not get the 3rd but getting the 4th is still very important for HCA vs Boston. The 3 games we have lost, we have been in them all so nothing to be ashamed of. Several East coast teams would go 1-3 on a trip like ours and a few 0-4, we are looking at 0-4 unfortunately playing at GS tonight.

 

By the way, we still play Boston twice. They are currently 43-29.

112-89.....0-4 road trip and I guess we saw that coming.

Tyreke with 20 points.,.maybe he's figured out his role

Holiday had 13 in 16 minutes...

But 38.5% as a team shooting...just awful..15 turnovers.and a lot of that is Collison being out

 

44-29.....with 9 games left.....  time to come home.

Home games. What a concept!

Up 62-46 at the half over Denver....Bogdonavic has 26 points at the half in 16 minutes

 

All of a sudden we can shoot again...56% from the floor

Collison out for the 3rd consecutive game..there is some room to worry there

 

But we look good

Pacers win 124-88. The rest really helped us and being back home. We were able to eat mama's home cooking pot roast, nothing like grade A meat and potato's. Bogey had 35.

124-88 - final

I didnt see that coming.  Denver is playing for the top seed in the west, aren't they?

Bogdonavic 35 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists...(zero turnovers)  in 25 minutes

 

Much needed

Holiday - 11 points, 5 assists no turnovers in 18 minutes

4. Pacers (45-29)

(Wed) at OKC

(Fri) at Boston

(Sat) Orlando

April 1 (M) Detroit

April 3 (Wed) at Detroit

April 5 (Fri) Boston

April 7 (Sun) New Jersey

April 10 (Wed) at Atlanta

 

 

There could be 50 wins there. Maybe 51.

But the 4th seed comes down to the two games with Boston.

Were going to play Boston quite a bit the next four weeks.

Its not easy being green

We need to split with Boston. That April 5th game here will probably decide the 4th seed.

We could be like last years Boston? Who knows. Nobody gave them a chance last year and they made it to ECFinals within 1 game of the Finals.

If we get HCA against Boston, I see that going 7 games.

I just don't understand them

That game they played Saturday at Charlotte..they were up 18 in the 4th quarter

..and then they just couldn't stop Kemba Walker

 

…..With Kyrie they have more talent than we do...

but the matchup: I like Myles vs Al Horford.

I want to see Kyrie score at will on Mathews. Maybe he can....

 

..and Evans has come alive on our bench but they have Terry Rozier....

It's a good matchup for us because our Big's are better. We need HCA though because home teams get the calls in general.

Dont know what the deal is with Collison.

But there's no need to rush him back because we're either the 4' or the '5

…..If he sits out the final 2 1/2 weeks...its no big deal. Play Holiday

 

Just so DC is ready for Game 1

If he can't go I am ok with resting him. He needs to be 100% going against their guards. Getting the 4 is still possible without him. If we do get HCA we need to make sure we win game 1.

The winner of 4-5 plays Milwaukee and with Brogdon at guard, they arent invincible

But the Celtics feel the same way, I'm sure.

 

Celtics are playing San Antonio now..

..and they play in streaks.....for a few minutes they crumble and then they rumble
