Full story: The Indianapolis Star

Baron Davis bedeviled the Mavericks one more time -- and now his crazy, carefree Golden State Warriors are one win away from a historic playoff upset.

Wow!

It's good to see the Pac..., I mean Warriors are doing so well.

Maybe Rick should have went a long time ago instead of most of our good players.

I completely understand being in a situation where the boss won't let you do your job the best way you know how.

In the long run, nobody wins.(Unless you're traded, of course!)

Al Harrington is doing his annual playoff choke-job. He's averaging 5 points in the series. I don't care if Stephen Jackson averaged 40 against Dallas, Golden State can have him. The bottom line is: We were going nowhere with those 2 losers and Golden State, if they beat Dallas, won't make it past the second round.

dont think it really matters they have no chance at the title the team itself just isnt good enuf but to win this series and maybe a round 2 win would be a real achievement for a team that just scraped into the playoffs and would do the rest of the legue a favor coz theres no other team that can take the mavs in a best to 7

It looks like Golden State has the last laugh on the Pacers by trading the garbage and getting Jackson and Harrington to possibly advance in the playoffs. In the meantime the Pacers fire their coach, are still stuck with the worst G.M. in the league and are stuck 3 long term contracts that assures the team they are going nowhere in the next 3 years.

Bird is a bonehead, Reggie was broadcasting the game last night and he said in the 3rd Q. "you kinda wonder what they were thinking with that trade" after Jackson nailed a 3. I gotta agree with Reggie on that one.

Come on, Jack from Indianapolis --- Harrington is his usual self, disappearing in the playoffs. He did it in Indy and he's doing it in Oakland. Jackson is playing well, but hasn't changed a bit with his temper tantrums (cost him quite a bit last week, didn't it?). Baron Davis is the one winning the games for Golden State. Jackson contributes, but none of the other players we traded are doing anything to help.

The funny thing is we tried playing small ball in the beginning of the year but it did not fit Carlisle coaching style and JO was crying about touches. So, we traded our versatile for players to fit Carlisle system and then fire Carlisle... Now we are stuck with two players, which barely have enough foot speed to guard T.Catchings...

End of the day, Jackson was up in the stands in Detroit beating the snot out of a fan, then subsequently pulled a gun on someone at a Strip Club. I don't care if he scores 50 points. He's a time bomb with SERIOUS PROBLEMS.
Harrington has once again faded from site, and only played thirteen minutes.
Only mistake Bird made was overestimating Harrington's value.

From what I have seen Jason Richardson and Baron Davis are carrying the Warriors, not Stephen Jackson.

I dont know what your watching but they are playing like a team...ALL of them...and to everybody trying to bash Al, keep in mind he's been guarding Dirk and containing him so far...Those guys are playing with heart...Looks like Ol Jack is working on ring #2...Go Golden State

Wow...The Mavs are almost done. I cant believe it. What a shame the Mighty Mavericks had 67 wins in the regular season but all that didnt mean anything in the post season did it?? I thought I never see this coming for them but wow .. they really do suck against the Warriors. I wounder what Mark Cuban is thinking or the look he has on his face. This is shocking I mean you dont see very many times a team that just barely squeeked into the playoffs as an 8 seed knock off a 1 seeded team with 67 wins. lol

You can dog The W's all you want but the fact is they can beat any team on any night. the only reason they have a 500 record is because of injuries. and yes Jackson is awesome and fits right in. his temper and passion helps the w's win fools!! thankyou larry bird - you can have them dumb ass over paid white boys
Love this game

Give it up on the trade. It will take more time than this to see if it was good or bad. The interesting thing about this series is will the NBA allow the Warriors to win. Flamboyant player Jax on one team; Flamboyant owner Cuban on the other. It makes me wonder.

I smell sour grape syndrome!!!
Well, the only team we have a hard time beating is San Antonio. If for any reason, San Antonio loses to Phoenix, then who knows, we may go a long way.

SJax is only a loser when he plays for the Pacers. Indianapolis has just been listed as one of the worst cities in terms of air quality. May be the bad air caused all the trouble in your players. Don't worry, the Bay Area air quality is not as bad so SJax will be fine here
