Saturday's Pacers-Suns matchup doesn't seem like much on paper. But throw in a Morris twins-vs.-Hansbrough brothers battle, and you've got one historic night in Phoenix.

^ LOL! Classic ESPN stuff...


I'm still mad the Lakers lost to the C's in the Finals a few yrs ago!

Did they sat out due to injury or rest? If due to rest, did they notify the league office?

Because they sat out due to "injury."

Because as much as you hate it, the Heat followed the rules and listed the players on the injury report.  The Spurs made it known they were resting players and even went as far as to send them home.

Rather Mike Miller have this type of game now than in the playoffs.

Carmelo seems back on point in terms of scoring.

But Woodson doesn't seem to know how to combine the "team effort" strategy they use when Carmelo is hurt, with the "Carmelo goes off" strategy when he's healthy.

There is a balance..and im glad Carmelo is back on point.

But when you need to score 50 to beat an undermanned Miami team without LeBron or Wade or Chalmers and you need to score 38 in 3 quarters to have a 4 point lead on the Hawks, there's a problem.

Its obvious Woodson is an advocate of teamwork when Carmelo is out and ball movement, but when Carmelo is back he throws it out the window and goes with "give Carmelo the ball and he'll wi it for us"

Even when Carmelo was injured and should have sat out(but played instead) Woodson played him this way.

Even when the bench would bring the team back and Carmelo could barelt walk, woodson threw him out there to try to win it(despite being down 15)

Pretty much the example now.

All that ball movement etc has gone out the window, and its become "throw it to Carmelo and hope he goes off for 40" basketball.

Like the Knicks but they won't do much damage in the playoffs playing this way unless Carmelo goes on a legendary run.

Gallinari likely tore his ACL yesterday, knee bent really far out. Man, there have been a ton of ACL/MCL related injuries in the last two seasons.
