Indy Cornrows has a good recap of the Pacers gutsy win.
Update: I probably should have watched this before writing anything. Looks like I was right about a Speights dunk. One more thing I got from those highlights is, even though Iguodala is supposed to be our franchise player and go-to guy, I'm not comfortable with him handling the ball with the clock running out. Give the ball to Lou-Will or even Andre Miller.
I was supposed to watch the game, but I also planned on being in a much better mood. I planned on not knowing the final outcome before coming home. I also have to pack for my flight tomorrow morning, but enough excuses.
Here's what I gathered from the box score.
-T.J. Ford his the go ahead jumper with 3.9 seconds to go. Good thing I didn't watch this. I wouldn't have been able to handle it.
-I can't believe what I'm seeing! A good game from Sammy D?! 36 minutes, 11 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks! Someone please tell me these numbers aren't a mirage.
-Looks like Andre Miller played a hell of a game. 14-10-12 for the triple-double and he had zero turnovers. What a man.
-Iggy also had some nice numbers. 26-6-6.
-Lou continues to put up big numbers, but it looks like he struggled from the field. 5-15.
-Willie Green only played 13 minutes. Out of all the stats, this might be my favorite.
-Mo Speights is so tight. 12 points, 4 rebounds and 4 blocks in 24 minutes. I'm guessing he also mixed a couple nice dunks in there.
The one point loss hurts. It puts our record at 12-15 going into a ridiculous road trip.
That's rough. The Clippers look to be the easiest opponent, but don't let them fool you. They've been playing pretty good ball since the Zach Randolph trade.
As you know, I'll be out of town for the first two of the road trip and I fully expect to come back to a 12-17 team.
Game threads will still be up for your convenience. I'll schedule them to be published tonight. I'll do my best to get on here in the next 5 days or so and if anyone wants to write legitimate recaps of games in the FanPosts, I'll be happy to publish them for all Liberty Ballers to read.
Tonight was disappointing to say the least, but it's nothing a little hot chocolate, packing, Madden and Home Alone 2 can't fix. Peace for now.
