    Another good game. The Pacers were able to pull a close one out in the 4th quarter. T.J. Ford was close to another triple double and Josh McRoberts provided some nice energy off the bench in the 2nd half.

    3-3 is nice, but we could easily be 5-1, if a) Dunleavy wasn't injured, and b) we would have closed out those games between the Suns and the Cavs.

    Good job, guys. We were able to pull through even though we were playing almost all bench warmers in the first half.

    Nov 12, W 98-87, @ NJ

    Hey, I'll take it. They were w/o Devin Harris, we were w/o Danger, Jr, and Murph. Nets may suck, but w/ the guys we had out the talent level was fairly comparable. Nice to see them get it done though, give me that much more of the sunshiner team cohesiveness vibe.

    I still LOVE the defense. All kinds of team leaders out, but they continued the great effort. Hopefully a few days rest and Danny'll be back, they said it was just cramps (hold your WNBA jokes). Nice to see Roy getting some fairly extensive burn but not fouling his way to the bench.

    And a Steve Graham sighting! I wish our end of the bench guys'd get more garbage minutes, especially with the tempo we run at.

    Another solid game from the entire TEAM tonight.

    I think it was our most solid win of the season, most importantly due to the fact that we were able to stave off a late run by the Hawks in the 4th quarter, and they had a chance near the end to cut within 5, but Quis came up with a HUGE block/steal, and was able to capatalize at the other end.

    All in all, everyone played well, whether it was Jack off the bench with big numbers, or Rasho getting 21 points, Murphy's 18 rebounds, or Granger's 34 points, everybody had a great great game.

    We should be at least 9-4 right now.

    How frustrating. I knew we were gonna blow it, as much as I hate to say...

    Ahh, I don't even want to talk about it.

    There's really no excuse for this continual falling apart and letting guys like Jason Terry get opponents back into games. This is the sort of thing that separates good teams from mediocre ones.

    our loss vs. TOR really hurt. they lose 5 straight and we give them the win? poor granger was trying his best to help out offensively but it just wasn't working.

    TJ and JOB you mofos! That's what you draw up out of a timeout?! I like what TJ brings with his drive and kick game to a JOB gameplan, but man, in these late game situations it's time to keep him either on the bench or the ball out of his hands. If you see the mismatch, attack it TJ, not spend 6 seconds dribbling around to throw up some garbage w/o even looking to draw a foul. Man I miss Dunleavy and his ability to get himself to the FT line, all these close losses could have easily swung to the W column.

    I'm not ready to start calling for heads until Jr's back. If we're still losing this many close games after our #2 option is back, then be gone JOB. And that's sort of hard to say, I like Jim O'Brien, I really do, just not as a head coach. He makes guys earn every minute they get, which is great, but if it's a close game down the stretch, book it as an L. A near 1/3 winning percentage is NOT acceptable, this is the Pacers, not the Clippers or Thunder. Get low post scoring and a coach who encourages it.

    And play big Roy, WTF!
