You mean his rotations? I can't really blame him, no matter who he threw out there in the second half sucked.

The Pacers offense was just terrible 2nd half...never seen anything like it honestly. It's been rather bad for most of the year but this was the absolute worst.
Defense meh, you can't really stop the Cavs when they're rolling.

More the lack of an offensive scheme. Iso and kick 95% of the time. Watching the Jazz and Spurs to watching McMillian is a completely different form of basketball.
First half worked with the hot shooting of everyone then it died when the Cavs made Teague Stevenson and Miles try to beat them.

Seems like second half Lance messed up the flow of the offense being unable to be a threat from perimeter, that allows Cavs to solidify their D with one guy sagging off

You can't see if you can't see that Lance Stephenson being overplayed cost this game. They did it before in GM1, go under and make him a shooter and it kills everything. He has no business with the ball late in games because he is too one dimensional.

I love watching NBA Basketball, it is so entertaining, especially Playoffs.

But a game like this would NEVER happen in European basketball. Whenever a team is up by that much they milk the clock, run long set plays (something I have never seen in the NBA) and take smart shots. On defense they try to slow the other team down.
What do NBA Teams do? Just like the Pacers tonight, they come out second half thinking they can put up another 74 point half against the defending champ and just throw up early shots that are contested, which lead to easy and FAST points by the Cavs. They basically turned the game around in the first 4 minutes of the second half. PG didn't touch the ball basically for the whole 3rd quarter and he didn't even ask for it. Rotations were all off all of a sudden. Could go on for days about this game.

Biggest comeback in NBA Playoff history. Never been this frustrated and disappointed being a Pacers fan

The nba is a joke with officiating. That said this game is 100% on the Pacers coaching. That was painful to watch.

Lets face it. Cavs is the better team. You guys are like an underdog in a chess game. You guys might as well punk them by mirroring their move. If they run 1-3, you also run it and let PG abuse Kyrie.

*once Cavs finds way to weaken Pacers lineup with Lance

I honestly dont get it. Going from contenders to playoff bottom feeders. George is definitely gone and he should have been traded a LOOOONG time ago. Seriously. This team needs a fresh rebuild. A new coach and everything. Try to get Jay Wright from Villanova and deal Paul George to the Celtics for the first pick. Keep Turner and trade a couple more pieces for a late round pick and then go hard in free agency because after that embarrassing performance last night from a sorry ass team, I think it's time to move on. Honestly wish the pacers were like the 2012 and 2013 pacers. That team was too good.
The scariest question in NBA history.

No doubt dribbled the damn air out of the ball. Sometimes the worse thing that can happen to Lance is for Lance to get going early.

Honestly I don't care what happens to George. He was great for about a month and a half and the playoffs. If he had been anywhere close to that the rest of the season this would be a 50+ win team that would not have to deal with the Cavs right now. I don't think Myles Turner is a good building block, I would deal him but Bird will not because he thinks he got a steal but dealing him would probably net you another steal because he is overrated. I'm fine with letting Teague walk even they I gained respect for him throughout the season. He will be fine on the right team. The rest I don't care about even to mention. I don't like this team at all, good its over.

I'll never understand why Larry wanted to let Frank go. If they don't win the next game I'd fire Nate.

I've been saying all season that this team tends to roll over and die as soon as things start going a little bit wrong. Last night there were 3-4 really bad calls, where fouls were committed by the Cavs, and the Pacers collapsed because of it. No excuse for it, the team has no guts.

As for the bad calls I saw the same thing happen in game to of San Antonio and Memphis just ask Fizdale what he thinks about that game, he got fined about $15,000 for his comments about the rotten officials. :nod:

This Pacers Team seems to give up and roll over and die at the first sign of a problem in a game. We lost at least 10 games this season that we should have won. If we'd gonna those games we would have had the best record. But this team has no guts. :nod:

Frank was never Larry's guy. He got his contract while Larry wasn't with the team. Larry had said at one time he thought you had to be a former player to get respect. Guess he doesn't know about Pop. Also don't think that Larry liked that Frank was a players coach. But he got the team to buy in.
