- 24 ppg in last 3 games

- 26ppg in last 3 games


Injury Report

Pacers-

- Knee
- Thigh
- Shoulder
- Foot

Knicks-

- Patella
(Help on Hardaway's and Houston's injuries would be appreciated)


<center>Pacers Fan's Key Matchup:

Anthony Johnson (11.5ppg vs Knicks this year) vs Stephon Marbury (26ppg this year vs Pacers)

To win this game, the Pacers have to play well defensively. Since Jamal Crawford and Stephon Marbury are both the Knicks main scorers, AJ has to give A+ effort defensively to keep them (more so Marbury) from dominating.

Pacers 91
Knicks 88

How does this game thread look? I copied some of Bird's, added a Key Matchup, and left most of what I normally use. Feel free to make suggestions on inclusions, exclusions, spacing, etc.

What the **** ABC? You don't even show the tip-off? Heh, AJ rejected Sweetney.

Even with DD, Foster, and Pollard, we can't rebound anything. Wow, that was a nice move by Marbury.

30-17 Knicks with 2 minutes left in the 1st

Jeff Foster hits twice in a row including a jumpshot while he was in the air grabbing a rebound. Jax hits to cut the lead to seven. Pacers called for a foul with .2 seconds left. Nice job.

Why doesn't ABC show the score when they go to commercials? Am I really going to have to watch this kind of broadcasting with horrible announcers in the playoffs?

I just realized this. Did that announcer say we were playing Jermaine Jones at the PG? Jumaine Jones plays for the Lakers at SF, Jermaine O'Neal is injured and plays PF, and our PG at the time was Eddie Gill.

:eek: What an up-and-under layup by Freddie! Our offense hasn't been very good this game, but when we finally set some good screens, Eddie Gill blows it by missing a wide open 3-pointer by about five feet to the side.

Are rebounds impossible? It looks like we're being held out there, but at the same time it looks like we're not giving any effort. All the Knicks collapse on the boards, but even Jeff Foster has run away from the ball.

Jax gets his 3-pointer blocked and gets knocked to the ground, but the ball eventually gets to Reggie with 3 Pacers around verses one Knick, and he nails a 3. Double D dunks it, but Marbury answers with a layup. Knicks by two with 3:40 left in the half.
