Pacers Lose Another One

Mark down two losses for the Pacers this week, and this week is not going well for the team. A tough game in Chicago, and letting this one slip away last night as the Hawks pulled away for a 101-96 win and a third straight one for the Hawks.

The Pacers let Josh Smith score at will as he hit for 27 points, while David West tried to keep up with his 24 points for the Pacers. Jannero Pargo seemed to dominant that fourth quarter as I was listening to the game and I felt like his name was called a lot during that final period. He ended up with 16 points, but hit daggers to put away the Pacers.

Not exactly the game the Pacers wanted to lose as they will head to Miami and Orlando this weekend. Have to pick a win in one of those two games, and don’t feel the chances against the Heat are great, so they better take care of business against the Magic.

Indiana still sits in fifth place, and can definitely move up by the end of the season, but need to get winning against winning teams if they want to be a real contender. The time is now to start doing that, and this team needs to show that.

    The pacers problems r obvious.. they r being completely out-coached in important stretches during games.. its time to start playing CHESS n stead of checkers!! Vogal needs to start looking @ the best player matchups instead of always jus sticking to his normal starters and rotations.. mix it up, when we play d-rose start g-hill at the PG spot.. he’s a bigger better defender then Darren Collision.. when hibbert n west star slow get Tyler, and Lou n sooner.. Roy hangs his head and pouts for to long when he starts slow n d west is invisible for long stretches whendo he doesnt score, were he doesn’t play d, doesn’t board and doesn’t hustle.. get Pendergraph and AJ some time jus for the hustle n defense .. what really do we have to lose by shaking things up alil..?
