Here are some items of interest following the Pacers lost cause against the Suns:
- Bruno's live blog tracks the game from Shaq not planning to play, to Shaq starting, to Amare dominating. Also, here's the postgame report.
Mike Wells reports on Amare (he only had six dunks? seemed like 15), the pick-up feel to this Pacers-Suns game in the first half, and Jim O'Brien's complaints about the offense in the second half.
"I talked to our guys after the game, I talked to them during timeouts that we have to understand and be disciplined to do what we do best," O'Brien said. "Cut and run random pick-and-rolls and get good shot selection, and when we get away from that offense, we're not a very good basketball team. . . . Our guys know they'll be kicking themselves when they see the tape."
- Both Teams Played Hard tracked the ups and downs of the game with properly place awe for both Amare Stoudemire and Stacy Paetz.
- Pacers Notebook has Mike Dunleavy addressing the possibility of surgery. He doesn't expect to have surgery but the fact that the topic is on the table is not good.
- Bright Side Of The Sun with reaction from the other side.
