Game 41: Pacers vs Rockets

We're leading 23 - 15 with 4:27 to go in the first quarter.

Not a bad start :D

We're leading 31 - 18 in the end of the first quarter.

Great quarter by George :D

Ian had a very spectacular chase down block on Beverley.

We're leading 52 - 47 with 2:36 to go.

We had a 50 - 39 lead but the Rockets cut the deficit in a little more than a minute.

I have to say this, though. We're playing to their pace and we're beating them at their own game at the moment.

We have to slow down the pace, crack down the D and control the glass to win. I don't think that we will keep shooting 69.2% from 3 so we have to get back to what we can do consistently.

Food poisoning supposedly.

Pendergraph is getting quite a lot of playing time in the 4th.

Mahinmi has gastrenteritis. He probably ate in the same joint with Green.

After seeing all of the comments in the general board about how the Rockets could score 120 on this Pacers D, this game is fun to watch.

after this win, really liking the
notion of granger giving the
bench a boost when he gets
back.

vogel focusing on D early on
really makes sense now.

if roy gets out of his funk,
sky's the limit.

this team is solid!

go Pacers!

Jordan never fully understood basketball. He had the lowest basketball IQ of any NBA "superstar" in history.

huh, Jordan was a monster on defense although if you want to say that was because the refs let him slap at hands all day you won't get an argument from me.
