I didn't watch this one, but I wish I had now. Turner and Justin Holiday with 18 apiece.

Hope TJ's plantar fasciitis clears up soon.

This team :D

Take some rest now, the bubbles don't care about home court advantage.

Surprisingly, the “home teams” have won 60% of the games played in the bubble. Guess the announcers and fans in the electronic boards matter a little bit. :dontknow:


But agree. Rest is important. No silly injuries with so little to gain.

Aaron with 1-11 shooting and Vic with 7-26 shooting, though

Together with Myles, they collectively shot 13-51, and Rockets aren't exactly known for their stifling defense?

That's a yikes

A number of the Pacers looked tired from the get-go. Maybe that was part of it?

A playoffs schedule where we have to play every other day is going to be exhausting for our guys.

Pacers players will have some very unsmooth games in september :)

It's too bad, because this could have allowed the depth of the team to shine

But with Domas and Lamb out, and the rest of the starting lineup dealing with injuries here and there, the team's depth gets cancelled out

If the team was at full strength, then Aaron, Goga, and Jakarr Sampson are probably all a tier above who the 10th, 11th, and 12th man of the other teams are

(assuming that Lamb, Doug, TJM, Justin are 6th to 9th)
