John P. Kotter, the best-selling author, once said, “A higher rate of urgency does not imply ever-present panic, anxiety, or fear. It means a state in which complacency is virtually absent.” H. Jackson Brown Jr., the author, gave it to us like this, “You must take action now that will move you towards your goals. Develop a sense of urgency in your life.” Leonardo da Vinci broke it down so that it would forever be broken when he spit, “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
Well playas…once again we’re talkin’ about the Indiana Pacers not playin’ with a sense of urgency. On Saturday, playin’ without Paul George due to a right ankle sprain, they took an “L” against the Boston Celtics 105-99. The crazy thing is, the game was up for grabs to whoever wanted to cut the line.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Even without the offense and leadership of PG13 the Pacers had these boyz pinned in the closet to beat them but never seemed to get goin’ offensively. They played with no rhythm and in the end it bit them in the butt.
The game was always winnable but they just couldn’t get goin’! Don’t tell me that it was because PG was out because Boston didn’t play like crap either. They were on the back end of a back to back too. Playin’ with a sense of urgency is something that this team has to figure out or it’s gonna be a long season playboy.
Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 23 points but the dun only had 4 points over the first 34 minutes! Then he exploded in the final 14 minutes to go off for 19!! That simply can’t happen bruh. I know boyz are tired but to let a boy go nuts like that is a back breaker for real.
Jeff Teague led the Pacers with 20 points gettin’ to the foul line 12 times makin’ 11 of them. At least he was bein’ aggressive with the rock. Myles Turner dropped off 17 in the kitty as Monta Ellis unloaded 15 just in case a boy made a liquor run.
This was the first loss at home this season for the Pacers. Now they’v’e got to have a short memory because ole Frank Vogel comes into town on Monday with his Orlando Magic. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
