    It's always tough when you have a stretch like that because you can never maintain that pace.

    Great end to the half. 

    That first half was completely nuts.   75 points in a half is just absurd.

     

     

    But I'll gladly take it.

    Kemba Walker is on another level 

    Mkg back in the locker room? O no. How many have prayed today?

    On it right now. 

    Kemba <3

    I'm not sure how that wasn't a foul on CJ Miles there. Just shoved Batum to the floor to get ball

    He's ok, tweaked the back. He will be OK, may sit Wed. Will have to see how he feels mañana.
    Buckets nailed this game. Indys complete lack of defense allowed for an early rhythm and they gave themselves zero chance to win. They managed to make a team that completely negates their best players strengths. Pg was completely invisible in this game.

    The perfect team for him would ironically be Charlotte.
    Wow, that was an awesome game. Incredible passing all night. I couldn't believe the ball movement and extra passes going on. How about MKG putting up the points early and often. Some of those early assists by Kemba were special. 8 guys finished in double figures. You knew the pace couldn't keep up. Didn't like the lead shrinking so quickly to end the half, but a great job by the team to kick it back up. Great team win. Oh, and Kemba might have a good year.

    This was the biggest take away for me too. Made me wish basketball had the hockey assist rule where you don't have to be the person who passes directly to the player who scores, but the person who passes to the actual assisting player would also get credit.

     

    Indy's defense is horrible, but you have to give our guys credit for exploiting the absolute piss out of them. 

     

    Fun game to watch. My stomach dropped to the floor when MKG was taken out, but I'm glad to hear that it seems like a pretty minor issue. He was having a great night.

    The Pacers looked as bad on offense as they did on defense.  Byron Mullens would shake his head at some of the stuff the Pacers were (not) doing out there.  Even Big Al thought their offense was too stagnant. 

     

    Good to run into these confidence builders while the team isn't at full strength. 

    Paul George will always be MKG's bitch.  That 1st quarter took all the heart of him.

     

    And boy what a 1st quarter!  If our bench could get up to snuff (and healthy) I think we're going to shatter all of that conventional wisdom that says this will be a down year from last season.

    Now we just need the Cavs to lose a few games

    Great win by the Hornets. Really liking the great chemistry that the players have together. 

    The Pacers simply lack the horses. McMillan tried clawing back with a staggered 1 v. 2 but Charlotte is too_________(deep, fast, long, well coached, young, skilled, good). So congrats Indiana on reclaiming a few points by running Paul George 33 out of a possible 36 minutes......here, have some fresh Kemba.

     

     

    And that Pacer 4/5 rotation is 1999 personified. Thad Young is decent but isn't what they need.

    Have to believe Larry forgot about the Nate McMillan coached Blazers.
