Alright, safe to say the Danny Granger trade ruined the Pacers' team chemistry, to the point they're struggling hard.

I don't know if they struggling hard, I think Roy Hibbert is struggling hard but overall the team is playing the same as they were before, having a DPOY candidate the first 4 months turn to garbage the last 4 months is what really killed,

Grangers knees are nuked, unlikely he plays any significant minutes again in his career

Regarding Hibbert, a lot of people connected to the nba are convinced that Hibbert was steaming when the pacers signed Bynum, and he thought they were trying to replace him and started moping, Jalen Rose is one guy that believes this among others

Roy, my guy, you need to get it together

in news that should come as no shock to anyone, Ibaka is now listed as day to day.

Yahoo also has a story today about how Lebron notes that many basketball players would play through a concussion.

Back in the regular season, the Granger trade actually made holes in the Pacers lineup; however, at the moment, it is safe to say that injuries will slow down the Pacers.

Pacers don't have any injuries. George has already been cleared to play.

Game 3 is 5:30 Pacific in Miami. Glad to know I'm proven wrong.

Oden will play.

The Heat just turn on a switch and win games

Trail 1 game. Win 4 straight

Anyone who thinks any team can challenge the Heat is ridiculous. Not even the Spurs can deal with the Heat. Ugh. I can't even watch anymore, I get so riled up.

George may have been cleared, but it makes you wonder.

Also, Miami is the only team I know of who has a switch. Others try to use it, but they're the only team that really do with consistency it seems.

What? Problem they will have against San Antonio is that Lebron cant guard Duncan. Lebron in the last 5 minutes of the game can cover any perimeter player and totally lock them down, cant do that against Timmy.

Thing is the heats perimeter defense is so dominant that Duncan can average 20-12 and the heat will still win, they have the ability to just completely lock it down and get 5 or 6 turnovers in a row, they will have to be very smart, and defensively, Popovich is going to have to do to lebron what Rick Carlisle did, give him a different look every time down

this team is quite the challenge, David West and Roy Hibbert are going to have to be big in game 4

They were a Tim Duncan layup away from winning last year, and they now they have home court. id like the Spurs to win if this series were happen. If the game is close late and the Spurs need baskets, dont see anyone on the Heat being able to stop Duncan.
