Default Indianas lose to Wolves

Wow this was ridicoules to watch. At first we are making every jumper and Wolves keep stinking, Indiana takes a quick 20 point lead. But then *BAM* Wolves starting to get hot (Walker and Telfair). All of the sudden its tie.

I am like, yeah ok Indiana is missing their jumpers and Wolves are making theirs, all Indiana needs to do is take it to the basket. BUT NO! They keep shooting the ball and misses every one of them, and Wolves keep making their shots.

Indiana's defense sucked, they maked Telfair look like Isiah Thomas. They made Walker look like Reggie Miller with the 3s, and they never grabbed any rebounds. Al Jefferson and co was beasting the boards. Gerald Green was having a field day, he was "pwning" us.

It didnt even seem like Indiana wanted to win when Wolves tied the game. DAMN! Im so mad at Pacers right now.

So discuss what we need to better here. And please share your views of the game. If we are going to settle for jumpshots all the time, we will only win about 2 of 10 games. We need to take it strong to the basket and play more defense.

Sure we can be hot sometimes and make every shot and we are going to win. But when we start to miss the shots we need more stuff to do to win the game. We need more plays that get the players to the basket.

Also Granger is really great at missing layups. He didnt do it this game, but he has atleast missed 1 every game, can't remember if he missed one this game. He needs to practice on that.

Ouch. Inconsistency in Indiana is becoming prevalent. And there is no worse embarassment than to let the worst team in the league come back on you, down from 20, and put up 120+. I hope they're all pissed and they come back from this. The Pacers can't keep losing to these easy teams. That's not what playoff-contending teams do.

yeah if you let the other team make 90 points before the 4th quarter, you are going to lose.

Pacers have now lost to T'Wolves and Supersonics, but have beat the Jazz and Mavs....makes no sense...I think Pacers walk in and are over-confident when they play team like them...we just gave up in the middle is the 3rd, Jamaal was just walking up and shoooting 3's like he was playing alone

we just need to bounce back tonight against the Wiz, they also had a game last night, so they should be tired also

yeah, this is crappy. the t'wolves are a bottom of the barrel team and we lost to them. we have that intangability though. it seems we always walk on a thin line between winning and losing to junk teams.

also, any time antoine walker is scoring against a team, there's go to be a big problem going on. it's time for coach o'brien to chew some butt. there's no excuse for us losing to this team at all. none.

bad pacers, bad.

Co-sign to everything everyone said. The only teams the Wolves should be able to beat are the Sixers, the Hawks, the Sonics, and maybe the Heat. Other than that, they should not be able to win a game.
