GOOD JOB SEATTLE!!!!!!!!!!WHO CARES ABOUT THE PACERS. TINSLEY WAS TOO HUNG OVER OR NEEDED ANOTHER MENDED JOINT. MOST OF THE AREA AND SURROUNDING AREA ARE FOR ANYONE BUT THE THUGS. SORRY FOR THE NEWCOMERS,FOSTER AND GRANGER. AND YOU ARMSTRONG ARE THE MAN. IT IS TOO BAD THE THUGS CANNOT TAKE A LESSON FROM A 38 YEAR OLD MAN. IT IS OBVIOUS WHO TAKES CARE OF THEMSELVES AND WHO DOES NOT.

Coach, I'll tell you what happened--I was at the game last night. The Pacers were sluggish in the first half and played little defense. The points in the paint is deceiving because most of those came on fast break layups and dunks - the Pacers' transition defense was horrible, especially in the first quarter. They came out with more energy on D in the second half, and Rawle Marshall did a great job on Ray Allen, well into the middle of the fourth. I really thought that our team played their best when Armstrong and Marshall were in the game... Seattle made their charge at the end of the fourth when Dunleavy came back in and was left to guard Allen - what a disaster. Finally Carlisle stuck Granger on Allen but he didn't do much better.

Murphy can really shoot, but he only took it to the rim a couple of times. Dunleavy shoots jumpers, but doesn't do much else. Neither look like they are having any fun at all. I hope that attitude doesn't rub off on Granger - he took it pretty easy last night, too.

The crowd, small as it was, was hilarious. We didn't know whether to boo or cheer Tinsley. He and Allen were clearly the two best players on the court, talent-wise, and we wouldn't have been close without Jamaal's penetration and kicks.

One last thing: Diogu is a force inside. I think he just needs some consistent playing time to stay out of foul trouble. He's the only guy on the team and consistently went to the offensive glass last night. Foster squeaks in there and does the whole Rodman-esque tip to himself (or sometimes blindly out to perimeter)- Diogu goes in there for the ball on every play. I liked seeing that.

Anybody else there last night?
