Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks Playoff Series Thread

70 posts in this topic

I know that Brooklyn swept Miami in the REGULAR SEASON, but do you honestly believe that they will beat Miami after watching them against Toronto today, who played like hot garbage and still lost by only 6?

No I don't. I do however, think they match up the best against Miami. I would've said Indiana but this team looks like it's fallen apart. Whatever the hell is going on in that locker room seems like it's not fixable.

This is why I wanted the Pacers over the Raptors.. We could of had a legitimate chance at sweeping these guys.

I've been really thinking about this and I can't decide which would be better, let the Heat win game 1 get comfy then beat them in games 2-5 or take it to them in the first game and risk "waking" up playoff Heat. I'm leaning towards the former but I want to see us win tomorrow.

Indiana has lost that "us against the world" swagger they had going on.  We could definitely take these guys out.

I don't how or why but trading for Evan Turner really f*cked the Pacers in the ass.

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
