We needed that game.   Hopefully we can turn it around.  

My prediction is losing 2-4.  

This may have been our chance....we held them to 84......

We didn't get as much from Myles and Sabonis as we usually do and I think that changes..

 

I think we win game two

It reminded me of a 90's playoff game. Remember when Utah beat Jordan's Bulls in Game 4 of the Finals 78-73. Both teams play great defense, problem with us we do not have our playmaker. I can't wait for next year when we have Oladipo back. I truly believe we are better than Boston if he was healthy. They are lucky he isn't healthy. They caught a huge break.

True. We were the team that everybody said they wanted to play.

 

But we wont shoot 12 of 21 from the line again and we wont shoot 6 of 27 on 3s again.

We scored 74 points on 84 shots

McDermott (1 of 7) looked like he was scared to death

 

But we need some anger. They pushed us around

Here's where we miss Lance..  Matthews has to take more than 8 shots..and we must set harder screens to get Jaylen Brown off Bogdonavic. Knock somebody down. Fouls wont be called....we have to take our physical nature to another level.

 

With 2 1/2 days rest....I actually like our chances in Game two

Yeah I miss Lance because he brought toughness to the team. We have to win Game 2 or the series is toast. I know teams have come back from 0-2 but it is rare.

I just hope we aren’t swept. 

I had us winning 2 games going in but I am not sure we have enough on offense to make this a series. Oladipo was such a huge loss.

Warriors were up 94-63 over the Clippers and lost 135-131. That is why they play the games! The 31 point comeback by the Clippers is the largest in NBA playoff history. Series is now 1-1.

I have never seen anything like that../..

…..I don't think GSW is going to lose the series because ...well...they were up 31....

But it was going to be a sweep and now it might be 6 or 7 games

Yeah that was unreal. To have that happen to the Warriors was just mindboggling. If the Clippers win Game 3, who knows?

Did we ever have a chance to get Lou Williams?

I just asking because I dont know if Ive ever seen anyone stop him.

I know he cant play 35-40 minutes…..that's why he doesn't start, I'd guess

But you can be in a close game at the end with him out there

Cousins is out for the playoffs as well. Last season they at least had McGee who played well. Teams may take to them by going inside now.

What worries me from last night?

Look at the scores 145-123......135-131.....

 

We do not have that kind of firepower..on our best night.

After the playoffs are over, we've got to see about shooters and shot creators.

They were shrewd to pick up Andrew Bogut....He knows them. He wont hurt them

The Lakers signed him 3 years ago when he was a free agent but traded him to Houston to free up cap space. Houston then traded him for Chris Paul is why he is on the Clippers. He may be the most underrated player I have seen in years. He is solid good and a great scorer.

Problem with Bogut is, he is injury prone now. If he can give them a good 10 minutes a game then that pick up will pay off.

They don't need much more than that because Draymond is playing center late in games anyway...especially when (I guess I should say if) they play Houston

Imagine if we had Oladipo and Walker together. That is 2 guys that can create off the dribble then Bogey could just go back to drilling 3's and getting his easy 15 points.

You are right. That's the arguement for getting Kemba Walker...no matter what he costs..

We have a 'window'    2 more years with Vic at his present rate..

 

We'd have to let Collison and Evans and Cory Joseph all go...3 guards

...but we'd have Aaron Holiday and Edmund Sumner and

….and Walker and Vic would be playing 30-35 minutes a night each anyway

Kinda like Chris Paul and James harden on Houston.

 

..after 2 years of being the 5th seed and winning 48 games......

...we might want to sign a big check and take a chance

Yep, if I am Indy I go for Walker and make a run at it next season. I would say goodbye to Collison and Evans. If we had Oladipo, Walker, Bogey, and Turner, that is firepower. I think with Walker on the team Turner's game would be better because Walker's penetration would open things up. Oladipo and Walker both would average 20 a game and Bogey and Turner would be around 15 a piece getting easier looks.

and we'd still have a bench of Sabonis (at low pay one more year) and McDermott and Leaf  with Holiday with Sumner..

 

...The hard part would be getting Kemba to choose us over a half dozen other  teams

Yeah we have to sell it to him and show him how nice and laid back Indianapolis is. Also Walker knows we have a good team that has great chemistry, that is another selling point.

Vic has to give him a call..

Didn't Kemba play with Lance in Charlotte?

 

Hey, Larry Bird can call him......

I can see Lance being back in Indy next season if all else fails. I do not see him returning to LA.

Absolutely.....Magic isn't there....Luke is gone.

..and LeBron now knows (he should have known) he needs shooters.

 

I would not be shocked to see Lance in the stands in Indianapolis Friday night

Lance just belongs here. He plays much better in a Pacers uniform than any other, why I have no idea but he does :funny:

We are playing small tonight keeping the lane clean. Boston has played good D on Sabonis but I feel like Donas has done other things well tonight. Turner has stepped up the D here in the 3rd

Good 3rd for us. Kyrie is feeling it and he may get 40. He can score against good D and that’s ok. We have to keep the other guys in check.

I think that's our window to winning.

Make it Kyrie against the world.

 

I'm worried that they have nuetralized Sabonis and Turner

They average 27 a game

 

82-78 with 8:00 to go

We let them back in with Kyrie on the bench by giving up offensive rebounds letting them get to the front of the rim and missing free throws beating ourselves

We have to make it harder for Kyrie then that can’t give him wide open 3’s. These run stopping situations are when we really miss Vic

    • lol I wonder where he thinks Mariotta lands in the QB rankings
    • Agree about the lateral runs. There was a couple times when we just needed short yardage - clearly best going straight down the middle especially with an O-line like ours. Panthers did the same the other night and that cost them big time.   As for Brissett, so far I am pleasantly surprised with him. I thought he would struggle more than he has, not that he has been amazing or anything but he is doing an okay job so far. Hopefully he keeps getting better with more games under his belt.
    • That’s normally how it goes for kickers at the end.  They just lose it.
    • That's three bad games in a row.  I'm not sure what's going on.  Imo, you don't fall so fast.  It's not like he's been losing distance over the years.  He just seemed to fall off a cliff.  
    • This is such a ridiculous post, lol   Allie Cox is nowhere near the receiving threat the Ebron is. Dude hurdled someone in the open field today...dude is a top option in this offense only after Hilton. He may have a bit of an outspoken personality but that has not clashed with the locker room nor his on field performance so it's a very irrelevant point.      Anyways, I'd have to go with Geathers. He makes too many mistakes and is injury prone.
