They won with JO, and he put up some big numbers. Tinsley saves the day overall. Let's see if they can win consistently with JO back.

I may not be very bright, but it seems to me that Tinsley is shooting way to many shots. The 10 for 20 in this game is among his best performance. Anytime your point guard takes that many shots and is shooting at a percentage of less than 40%, our chances as a team can't be real good.
He needs to set up the other players rather than shooting 20 times a game. Pacers are no better this year that last and they are still " relying" on those same players who can not atay healthy enough to play 75 to 80 games each year. I predict - Tinsley will have his physical issues again too.

He was feeling it. He banged three three's in a row to seal the game. Other players weren't hitting their shots and Tinsley was on fire. How can you bitch about that? This doesn't happen every night. If he's draining shots, give him the rock. Feed the hot hand.

Come on, guys -- the Pacers have just won three of four games on a relatively rigorous Western road trip...And they're showing more promise this season than last year....I know we've had some disappointing seasons in recent years, but let's drop the cynicism and get behind this team...At times, this city has deserved better players representing it; but these days I think it deserves better fans supporting the team, as well...

And Tinsley, by the way, is looking pretty good this year...Obviously you want your point guard to be distributing the ball and running the offense, but there's nothing wrong with looking for your shot at the same time...The guy drains three 3-pointers in the closing minutes to get us the win, and you guys are complaining he shoots too much?....Be happy for the WIN, baby!!...Y'all are spoilsports!

I think a big part of this is the new coaching style. I heard on the Jim O'brien show recently that the coach will bench a player passing up 2 open looks in a row (maybe it was 3.. I'm not completely sure but I think it was 2). In other words, he's really trying to drill it into the guys that they should shoot if they're open. Subsequently, Tinsley will find himself open quite a bit.

O'Neal states that he woke up the day after the Sonics game without any pain in his knee which is the first time in more that a year and a half he's been without pain. His shoulder must have been good enough to hoist up 18 shots and pull down 15 boards. 20 and 15 is a pretty strong game. I sincerely hope if they intend to keep him then he can work into this style and mesh with the chemistry. If not, Larry should be working the phones tonight after this game.

Tinsley's line was huge as well. 3 for 3 from behind the arc, 6 for 6 from the line, 7 assists and 7 boards. Pretty strong.

That was a good road trip for this team. They really should have come home 4-0 but I'll take it.

Pacers are playing decent....There holding there own right now let give the guys some credit. I think Jim O'brien is a good coach and know what he's doing. One of Larry Birds better move so far.
