Some notes:

  • While Rafer almost notched a triple-double, he did turn the ball over 6 times.  Still, I can't hate on him too much - he did play a good game.  Seems like he usually steps up when our stars are out.
  • Despite out-shooting the Pacers in every category except FT, our 19 turnovers were just killer.  We even out-rebounded Indiana without the services of Shanghai's Finest.  Those FT's and TO's were the difference in the game.
  • Is Aaron Brooks in another slump, or was he just really good when the season started?  I love Aaron, so I hope it's a slump, but he's going to have to step it up with Yao out for a few days.
  • Luis Landry was excellent, seeing as they were our only post options.  42/8 is a hell of a night, and now Carl is going to see plenty more minutes.
  • Still a tough loss, but we did fight hard without Yao.  We even held Granger to a bad shooting night, but he still got his.  That's what stars do.

Next Game: Sunday @ Detroit.  Can we stop Rodney S-s-s-Stuckey?
