I can't for the life of me, figure out why anyone would ever want to bring a 38 year old, Darrell Armstrong, to the Pacers organization. But..........

I'm glad they did. What a sparkplug. Way to put it on the Lakers.

Go Colts!!!!!!!!!

You know, every time some sports pundit looks to the Eastern Conference of the NBA, They talk about Miami, Detroit, Washington, Toronto, Cleveland, and NO love for the Pacers.

Funny thing is, the new lineup, in only about 10 days of work has won a few and played much harder than I'd seen. AND, they've got an upcoming schedule loaded with home games. Given some more time to play together and those circumstances, I'm much more optimistic than that.

If this team can gel in the next couple of weeks, there isn't anyone in the East that can't be caught.(They've virtually owned the Pistons this year.) I think Washington will have a lot to say, but the Pacers look to me like a potential 4 seed, maybe a 2 if they can catch the Pistons.

I feel relatively confident in saying that this group has a much better chance than the previous and that I like the (realtive) youth and depth of this club a lot.

Consider, Detroit has gotten older (and their center is now practicing his craft in Chicago), Cleveland can't quite find anyone to be a number two to LeBron, Miami isn't in the game yet...Who knows?

I only know it could get fun to watch. Might have to buy that second half NBA package.

GO BLUE, and GO BLUE & GOLD.

Dunleavy 3 for 11. Another great shooting night for Mr. Softee.

Sick of him yet?

Notice that Harrington bricked another effort in Philly last night as GS squeaked by a 76'ers team without Iverson and Webber. If we can beat the Lakers with Dunleavy going 3 for 11, I'll take it. There is a lot more to basketball than what shows up in the box score. He did hit two key free throws down the stretch, and played 40 minutes.

As I have said before, this was not a straight trade of talent. This is addition by subtraction, where the focus was to get more playing time for Granger. Whatever Dunleavy and Murphy bring to the table is extra.

Good effort by our Pacers.

Murphy broke his nose? Does that mean he's going to be even uglier now? Is that even possible?!

I wasn't sure about this team and withheld my judgement. I went to the miami game and liked what I saw. Now, they've won 6 of 7 and don't look half bad. The team is trying to play as a team now. Dunleavy is going to need a bit of nuturing after the stint in GS, his confidence is shattered. He'll be fine. I have no great expectations from him so if we get anything (rebounds, good defense) I'm happy. The only thing that continues to disturb me is Jamaal Tinsley. He is still a ball hog, still shoots sporadically, still makes too many turnovers and seemingly, the team doesn't run very well when he's on the court. Can we just get rid of him now? Even Darrell Armstrong at his age, runs the team better and the team actually responds to him. The rest of the players who come out and play their hardest every night, could never have as their leader, a pot-smoking, serial underachiever like Jamaal. The three amigos need to get rid of him just like Mr. Jackson!

Harrington scored the winning basket. Nothing wrong with that!

Dunleavy is a putz. Has he closed his mouth yet or does he still play with that dumb look on his face?

Great first half for Dunleavy. Very typical. 1 for 7 shooting. You poor Pacer fans. He's the Rex Grossman of the NBA.
