Pacers enter the game 4-1 to start the season. D-Wade out with a foot injury. Optimism. Pacers talk about elevating themselves to the Eastern Conference elite. No one shows up. Refs aren’t helpful until Pacers down by 30. Get trounced, 118-83. Hansbrough’s +/- is -43, and that includes (all the) buckets he scored in garbage time. Granger still can’t throw a beachball into the ocean and can’t dribble. Lance Stephenson injured his ankle while committing a travel. A porn star lookalike (Amundson) was the best player on the team. That pretty much summed up the night. Maybe it’ll be a wake up call for the worst 4-2 team in the NBA. Vogel’s offensive strategy is based on hustle and not much else. Team shot 34.8% and committed 23 turnovers. Something needs to be done because the road’s getting a lot tougher. Not going to bother putting up a recap video (ie, Heat highlight reel). PS: Lebron acted like a suffered a season-ending injury during the third quarter on a semi-botched fast break. It was absolutely nothing. I’m going to go cry now.
