Happens more then you may think Earl.  There have even been more than a handful of 8 seeds beating 1 seeds (including 1 each of the past 2 seasons)  Pacers are a 3 seed, they are a good team.

I seem to remember a 67 win Mavericks team losing to the 8th seeded Golden State Warriors in the first round a few years ago.

Pacers have a lot of good components to their team. They have like 4 or 5 guys scroing in double figures. But what they lack is a closer, a la Kobe, Pierce, or Wade.

I was shocked by the 76ers winning in Boston. Man...I'm sure the Boston fans are so pissed about losing home court edge.

That up and under layup by Igudola was crazy.

I would be shocked if the 76ers win the series.  Although the Celtics are running out of time to win another title.

Dude...this is the absolute last year that this Celtics team will compete for a title. End of the line season with Garnett, Allen, and Pierce. They've had a great run.

I hope they can win this series because they can beat Miami, especially without Bosh.

Agree.  I think they can beat Miami with Bosh.

I'd love to see a Lakers/Celtics final.  But given how remote that is, I'll just be rooting against The Frozen One.

Wow the Heat laid an egg tonight  :D  The Pacers had the perfect gameplan:  Let Chalmers score as much as he wants.

Post by: UPINTHEMGUTS on May 18, 2012, 06:44:56 AM
It's been only three games but the Heat look to be in trouble.

I loved it when one of the Pacers bench players showed the choke sign after Lebron missed the free throw. If the Pacers go up 3-1, no way the Heat comes back.

Can't wait for the inevitable "woe is me" spiel from lebron and wade if they lose come sunday.

A must win game for l.a. tonight.

OKC is just too good and can beat their opponents in so many different ways.

To have to go 41-42 from the free throw line in order to win a game by 3 points is crazy.


Title: Re: The Pacers will beat the Heat!!!!!!!!
Post by: Dos Equis on May 19, 2012, 03:26:55 PM
I'm not all that optimistic about my Lakers, but they have outplayed OKC in 2 out of 3 (should have won game 2). 

The Spurs are playing ridiculously well.  Seventeen in a row. 

I am eagerly awaiting the demise of The Frozen One.   :)

Just about every media outlet in the country is fawning over lebrons performane and rightfully so, he had a great game. However, (and not to be THAT guy)  I have to say it, i've seen harder contested drives to the rim at my local park. Just something about seeing 2 and 3 defenders in the paint standing there while lebron dunks it, irritates me. It's not even about lebron, anybody really. This is supposed to be playoff basketball right?

You dont have to tackle him, but a hard foul just to send a message, like this shit ain't gonna be easy.

I agree, but this ain't the 80s.  Hard fouls will get a guy suspended.   ::) 

But I agree they shouldn't be letting guys just dunk all over them.

What I don't understand why the guy gets so much credit.  The guy drives in the lane like a fucking freight train.  You only have two options to try to stop that, take a charge (not likely), or foul him.  He is a great player, but he dominates because he gets fouled so much. Pacers are in trouble now.

I get your point and actually, it seems like theyre letting them "play" this year. Might just be me.

Depends on the crew.  LA shot 40-something FTs in game 3.  They have made it very difficult to defend over the past 15 years or so with all the touch fouls.  Sissying up the game just like the NFL.

I was thinking to myself who on this pacers squad is going to lay the wood on one of these guys. David west is a little bit of a wildcard. Nope, seemed like he just hung out, took a few 17ft jumpers, and proceeded to get punked by shane battier.

Yeah, Mitch, let's build the franchise around that guy.   ::)

Beach...you can't be serious. Other than Dwight Howard, he's practically the only other true center in the league. Supremely skilled big man and he's only getting better. He's worth keeping. He's still a youngster. He'll eventually mature and cut his little tirades out. He does have a bit of a temper.

Yeah I'm serious.  Have you been paying attention to him this season?  He had a great year and stayed healthy for the first time, but his attitude absolutely sucks.  And he was inconsistent.  He could dominate every stinking game if he had the heart and desire. 

I'd trade him for Howard. 

Pau needs to go too.  I'd try and get D. Will from NJ for Pau. 

And I still want to punch Stern in the mouth over the Chris Paul veto.   >:(   :)

Still wouldn't trade him. Too much upside. I understand what he said recently in the press but wasn't he asked that right after the Lakers were eliminated? He's still immature. Hopefully he grows out of that.

I'm just saying...he certainly didn't hurt the Lakers chances in winning back to back titles a few years ago.

He didn't have a lot to do with the Lakers winning titles a few years ago.  That was Kobe and Pau.  Bynum was hurt.  

I agree with you that he has tremendous upside.  I just doubt we ever see him get there.  This is the same kid who dismissed Kareem, who was hired by the Lakers at their expense to mentor/tutor him.  If you watch him during post-game press conferences and read his other comments, he really doesn't care.  He doesn't have that "fire in belly."  That's why he disappears so much.  He could be almost as dominant as Shaq if he showed up every game.  I doubt that happens.  

Give me the guy who will bring it on both ends of the floor every night, even with his limited offensive game (Howard).

Apples and oranges.  Bynum isn't throwing hissy fits.  Kobe's situation was entirely different.  He was upset because they were not trying to improve the team.  Don't blame him one bit.  He was right.
