Heat Beat Pacers in Another Hard Fought Game

Posted by Pacers Boy On November - 23 - 2008

It was looking a little scary as Miami was quickly up by six, but T.J. stepped up and finally got the lead in the Pacers favor - 13 to 11. The Heat are playing a very up-tempo game and can do anything inside. Dwayne Wade is explosive and incredible inside the basket, and rookie Beasley has seen a lot of action already. If we don’t start blocking out on the inside we are completely screwed. At least Wade and Beasley both have a foul already with five minutes to go in the first. Brandon Rush already has five off the quarter and the Pacers are up 27 to 18 with two minutes - two-ah left. The Pacers are getting to the rim, but about half of the time ends up in second chance points or points for Miami. Indiana ends the first quarter with a double figure lead, up 31 to 20, hitting 13 of 22 at 59% and outscore the Heat 18 to 6 with points in the paint.

Pacers Lose in Overtime Against Magic

Posted by Pacers Boy On November - 21 - 2008

The Pacers started the game against Orlando with pressure and Granger caused a turnover, followed by a surprisingly nice pass. Tempo is up and play is good on both sides, but Orlando is a good team. We were up by 8, but they kept hitting open long shots and stole the lead. The combination of Dwight Howard and Orlando hitting threes led to a struggle for the Pacers defensively. First quarter ended 34 to 28 with a nice shot and extra point from Foster with help from Jack. It was mentioned that Foster said this was as good a group that he’s been with in 10 years on the radio today.

Pacers May Freeze in Conseco Against Hawks

Posted by Pacers Boy On November - 17 - 2008

The Pacers may freeze not because of their playing, but our inside sources say there is no heat in Conseco Fieldhouse. A piece of equipment broke today that cools down the steam supplied by IPL to heat Conseco. It must be plugged up or something, as it is almost 10 years old, because they turned on the heat and after a while noticed there wasn’t any heat for the Pacers! Maybe it will be like playing back in the ABA at Pepsi Coliseum.

Now take this with a grain of salt, but they don’t think the heat will be working by tomorrow. The Indiana Pacers did have a early Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless today and it didn’t look very cold, so we’ll see. But, if it is 40 degrees in Conseco, what else besides leg warmers is Danny Granger going to be wearing?

Moon boots?

Pacers Up By 26 Lose to Sixers by Two

Posted by Pacers Boy On November - 15 - 2008

Your Indiana Pacers started the game against the Philadelphia 76ers on fire. They had a 9-0 lead and Granger ended up hitting 3 threes in the first quarter. But, Hibbert also got another quick three fouls. I’d rather have a quick three pointer from the big man, but Daniels is doing that tonight unbelievably. The excitement is high as the Pacers ended the first quarter up 38 to 13. Arguably the best first quarter by the Pacers this season.

Pacers Beat the Nets Again?

Posted by Pacers Boy On November - 13 - 2008

Here is a good test for the Pacers: consistency. Can we beat the New Jersey Nets with a good defensive effort like we did a week ago? Time, and four quarters, will only tell. Rasho is back, but Murphy stayed home in Indy with the stomach flu. Brandon Rush starts the game for the Pacers with a nice three. We need him to step up with Murphy gone and Granger possibly hurt. The Pacers were up 11 - 4 with four minutes gone from the first quarter, but two consecutive turnovers gave the Nets some easy points.

Pacers Beat Thunder Without Much Lightning

Posted by Pacers Boy On November - 11 - 2008

T.J. Ford, one time. OK, a bunch of times. Ford made the game tonight. Sure you can look at stats and all that mumbo jumbo, but when nobody was hitting shots, when no one was being aggressive, when no one was taking it inside . . . T.J. SuperFord came to the rescue.
