Haven’t seen an official starting lineup. Tough situation for Rick. Start Brogdon splitting up rookie backcourt or bring him off the bench which would take big balls. Same with LeVert except he might not be in top shape and I could see him off the bench tonight if he’s ready conditioning wise. Or maybe they both start and the rookies play together on the second unit ?

Whatever the choice if Brogdon and LeVert big down the offense and won’t play team ball it could get ugly and fans might get rowdy in booing.

If rookies are second unit where’s Lance ? Small forward ? So much fun :lol:

Pregame has Brogdon and LeVert both starting. Could be on pitch counts though. Who plays with Lance???

Unfortunately the old hardly watchable Pacer basketball is back. I should’ve known Rick would screw this up

Rick is responsible for the Celtics shooting?

But my plan all along was to switch to PBS at 8:00 and they aren't changing my mind.

Not talking about the Celtics.

Talking about the players coming back not playing through Sabonis. Toward the end of the half LeVert and Brogdon finally started playing with Domas and good things started happening. Also couldn’t understand why Rick didn’t utilize Brissett earlier because he roughed up Tatum at Boston with his active hustle.

The halftime score tells me they closed the gap after I changed channels. Should've done it sooner.

I've been watching old episodes of Warehouse 13 on Peacock TV. Just wanted to drop in to see what was being reported. Sounds like I'm not missing anything.

Besides just not being near as good as Boston, we absolutely couldn’t hit a 3 to save our life and Boston was solidly nailing them.

Had to laugh that Goga may have had the best move in Rob Williams all night? And that the very end, Payton Pritchard drove into a Jackson/Goga duo for a layup attempt that did not end well. :lol:

Hahaha….. this is sad.

Nothing missed in tonight’s game. Just another reminder of how certain guards have no desire to play team ball moving the ball through Sabonis or Turner. It’s almost like they just don’t want to cut and risk not getting it back so they can get their shots. Lance and Washington did a good job of moving the ball still even though their shot wasn’t there.

Silver lining is that the subs got 3 minutes of play at the end and Pacers now own the 5th pick in draft.

I'm at the point of rather watch water buffalo's humping than watch brogdan and lehurt these guys suck. I used to like Brogdan but I'm for trading him this off season and getting a team full of G-League rejects that will look better than this rabble of donkey's.

Funny thing is Turner was not made available for after game press conference. Pacers or Myles on the defensive not wanting to talk about the obvious issues surrounding his recent discontent.

Joyfully this team has become such a mess, the Pacers finally released themselves from Simon's mediocrity urge.

Forcing an injury prone player to play PG, set up the offense and make his body even more vulnerable.
Forcing 2 centers to play together, to have 1 of them watch the other finish the game for a majority of games.
Getting a coach who lost big portions of passion. Caris his been out for 5 games. If he plays, he should be ready to win games, not being used as an excuse.
Getting excited over the vibe from a player, who isn't that good of a shooter or playmaker, which the Pacers do need.
Bad draft decisions, before last draft.

Good times ahead, just got to think better in the future.

Being 87 years old, developing talent for multiple years is not easy to do. Not hard either, but he is the boss and he has needs, that he can't shut down in favor of the greater good of the organisation.


No regrets at all about our past. Every day is an opportunity to do better, to be better.

That's brilliant, and hilarious.

I would love to see/hear the Pacers media people, including announcers, speak out more openly.

I doubt you’d be able to get Jeremiah and any other team employed media to speak out 100% honestly. Everyone else, non affiliated, is pretty honest if you catch them on podcasts and whatnot.
