Looking forward to seeing the Theis/Monroe combo again. I thought Theis looked very comfortable on defense last night.

Baynes needs to play within his skills set.

Disgusting effort so far. Brad should be ripping into our main guys hard on the bench and playing the end of the bench guys right now. They look lethargic and like they should win just by showing up tonight.

They're about playing as well as this site is running right now, which is certainly saying something.

Celtis shots are all short and everyone looks a step slow.

Not as slow as this site, but slow

Morris has been terrible tonight, not that anyone has been even average.

I know we're tired from the game last night, but this is just an unacceptable effort.  The Pacers are getting anything they want.

We're getting run out of our own gym and look about as bad as we have all year, yet Brad is over there cheesing on the sideline.

Sometimes I wish he showed a bit more emotion and held these guys more accountable within games. This is inexcusable.

And we CLEARLY miss Smart's tenacity.

Trying to decide what is worse the offense or defense

This team misses Smart's defense and spirit and attitude.  And yes, even his offense because no one can pass out here even.  Rozier just is not a PG.  He can have a game or two where he looks like it, usually again a bad team.

Feel free to yank Nader any time now Brad.  Defensive mistakes, turnovers, missed shots.

By far the worst we've looked all season long. We don't even look like we care out there, even on defense. We look like Cleveland before all of the trades.

Brad is seemingly incapable of making in-game adjustments or even motivating the guys to play tonight, and we're not doing anything but chuck jumpers out there. You'd think Brad would have some easy offensive sets for us to get to the hole.

These guys deserve the boo birds that they're getting tonight.

Embarrassingly bad. Gotta come out with more in this 2nd half.
