Before the season started I told boyz that the Pacers would only win 25 games with all of the new faces and no bonafide superstar on the roster. Well…they’ve proven me wrong so far by winnin’ 6 ball games within’ the first month. They’ve been extremely fun to watch but they hadn’t ran into anyone with both barrels loaded yet. Cleveland’s strugglin’ to figure out who they are and San Antonio came in without Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard.

Well playas…the Houston Rockets came into the joint on Sunday night without Chris Paul but they never needed hm in the first place. James Harden is better on the ball than off and he and his homeboyz went to work on the Pacers beatin’ the brakes off of them 118-95. From the word go the Pacers seemed to be overwhelmed by the Rockets ability to shoot the ball, pass the ball and rebound it.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! James Harden on the ball is NUTS!!! I’m not sure what they’re goin’ to do with Chris Paul when he comes back from injury. They actually don’t need him. Takin’ “The Beard” off of the ball would be a mistake.

Not only does the dun shoot the ball like crazy but he passes it even better. Ole boy finished the night with 26 points and 15 assists. It was nuts to see him come down the floor with it bruh and the Pacers looked shook all night.

For most of the first half the Rockets shot 68 percent from the field and 62 percent from three-point range. They eventually cooled in the second half but the damage had been done at that point. They launched 47 three-point attempts only makin’ 17 of them but 17 threes kills you.

Not only were they launchin’ boyz from the parkin’ lot but they were outreboundin’ the Pacers, so that means second chance shots.

Indiana was so shook that they only had three players in double figures. Victor Oladipo finished the night with 28 points, Sabonis got outta the joint with 17 and Myles Turner finished with 13 points and 8 rebounds. Great production from those three but duns like Thaddeus Young put up an O’fer in 24 minutes on the floor. Unacceptable!!!

They were so shook that they only hit 62 percent of their free throws. Say it with me bruh, Unacceptable!!

That can’t happen when you’re playin’ elite teams in this league and the Rockets played on Saturday night too. They were on the back end of a back to back. They tipped off less than 22 hours after playin’ in Houston on Saturday night. C’mon Pacers, you’ve gotta take advantage of a boyz lack of rest if nothin’ else. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
