Open Game Thread #44: Pacers at Bucks

New, comments

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which focuses on Jeff Foster's ability to adapt to the ever-changing circumstances with the Pacers that often force his playing time to fluctuate. I'm sure Travis Diener is amped up to play near his home town of Fond du Lac, but his right foot remains a problem. He's no defensive wiz, but you could tell by the way he was moving around at both ends last night that the foot was obviously bothering him. Regardless of who plays, I'm sure Mo Williams will be the first one to the arena tonight, eager to get things going.

For an outstanding Bucks' perspective, check out Brew Hoop. And when I say, check it out, I don't mean just tonight, but all the time. Great stuff on the Bucks and the NBA in general.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 97.4(2nd) 105.7(19th) 107.1(11th)
MIL 89.6(19th) 105.4(20th) 112.2(27th)
