A new season is upon us
 
WOOHOO PRESEASON!

There's a some scrimmage highlights up in the video section of Pacers.com from the last few days. I've only watched the first one so this is just some quick cursory stuff to get a thread going.

Here's the schedule;

@ Memphis, 10/6, 8:00, no tv
vs Orlando, 10/8, 7:00, FSN
@ Houston, 10/9, 7:00, NBATV (with a half hour Pacers preview thingy before the game)
vs Minnesota, 10/13, 7:00, no tv
vs New Orleans, 10/15, 7:00, FSN
@ Minnesota, 10/19, 8:00, no tv (Lance Stephenson's court date)
@ Chicago, 10/22, 8:00, no local tv but maybe WGN?

Hansbrough is NOT taking part in 5 on 5 scrimmages, only 4 on 4. Your guess is good as mine on the reasoning there. I guess just working him back into game shape ever so slowly and less guys on the floor means less chance of contact.

Ford and Solo sat out with some sore legs yesterday I believe, day to day, no biggy.

A nice soft and fluffy Pacers Crate video up with Boyle/Conrad/Denari about how great the chemistry is. Neat, let's see if it leads to wins and if not if it's still all copacetic come January.

Stephenson is an atrociously bad defender. There's not a chance in hell he can guard a point guard.

JOB was asked who the starting 5 would be a few days ago and he said DC/Dunleavy/Danny/McBob/Hibbert if the season were to start immediately. Who knows if that's changed. It does look like McBob's starting spot to lose at this point though with Hans still working his way back, I can dig that. Who's to say what happens at the 2 after Rush's suspension, if Dun's knee's back to 100% Rush may be a permanent sub. If George plays consistent offense with limited mistakes (which is a lot to ask for) I think he'll earn the starting spot within 25 games or so thanks to his activity on defense.

Anyways, another year begins full of hope. Let's make it last awhile this time, eh guys?

from the few scrimmage vids i've seen, mcbob had his hands on the ball quite a bit. i'm anxious to see how collinson will help us out.

Game 1's an 85-87 loss. Highlights/box score. Danny going 1/9 is obviously displeasing, but even moreso was Slick making it sound like Danny still isn't all that interested in defense on the radio. Roy had 18/10 (6 offensive) though, 3 fouls in 30 minutes. I could live with that. McBob with 14/7/4 in 25 minutes.

Tough too try and take much away from this game w/ just a boxscore.

Collison had 18 against the magic today. Good sign from him that he's improving.
