NBA Regular Season 2012-2013, Game 44:
Indiana Pacers (26-17) @ Utah Jazz (23-20)
Let's finish the week strong!
The basics are that I've been at work all day, yes, on caturday. So this is what you get. Don't worry, I've been working my butt off for other projects that will make everyone happier in the future -- but the present -- looks kinda bare. But that's me putting the future of this site ahead of the day to day appearances.
It's more important for me to have this site be a contender, then be the worst of the best right now, this weekend.
That probably explains why I'm less than content with the targeted goals of the team I root for, but hey, I'm coming around to seeing their point of view on the subject (see: the downbeat for today).
Anyhoo . . . Indy plays great defense. We do not. They are big and long and absolutely asphyxiated us last time we played. (nothing A.E. about it.) But we're a good home team, and good against the East. So, in theory -- we should bounce back from last night's debacle. (Like seriously . . . it's not like the Pacers have a 7 footer to come off the bench and go 7/8 on us, or a small forward who can go 5/11 from downtown on us)
And no, I'm not tanking SLC DUNK. Shut up.
