Pacers playing like they haven't forgotten about the playoffs.

Don't think David West is in the game though, was hoping to see him play.

Have you watched any of the heat training camp, how is OG Battier looking. Hope he has a great year and his 3 is on I like him much better the M miller.

Hope he has a great year and his 3 is on I like him much better the M miller.Haven't seen much regarding training camp, but there was a scrimmage on TV last night. Cole looked great, Pittman looked like he will get PT, Battier didn't play (strained quad, no big deal from what I read). I think Battier will definitely help, but I still see a role for Miller at backup SG and with his rebounding, hustle plays, and when he's feeling it, his 3pt shooting.

I think if Cole plays to his potential,he will have Chalmers job, by All Star break. I may be wrong, but I doubt it.

It will be interesting to see how Spo handles it, with Chalmers getting a $12mil/3yr deal (3rd year team option).

Wade>You
12-16-2011, 11:17 PM
Rookie mistake or bad coaching: 3 Pistons got back on defense instead of staying for a chance at the O-REB. Since you'd have to foul anyways, you take a chance at the REB and foul immediately if you can't get it.

Any big man or wing will do. Like Drummond, Barnes and Kidd-Gilchrist the most.

Davis is too thin for my liking right now.

Irving shot a **** load of free throws.. holy ****.As a team, 56 FTAs compared to 35 FTAs for the Pistons. A game that was lost by a 4pts, but was down to 1pt near the end. Would've changed the Pistons strategy by not having to foul down the stretch.

Phenomenonsense
12-16-2011, 11:50 PM
Yea, there was a lot of aggressive D on the pistons end that always ended in fouls unfortunately. I hope they take the fouls and continue to play defense. Put it on the refs to foul players out all season over making ****** calls early.

When West is able to play and the team builds more chemistry on the court we will look better. We also played a few D-League guys just to see what they could do in a game environment, don't write a team off after one pre-season game. Also Hansbrough coming off the bench will make for a very solid PF rotation. Hansbrough lead the team with 19.
