I watched this game rather intensively last evening. If their play is indicative of how they will be playing the entire season, I may have to put both of these teams behind Cleveland. Both teams defense was very suspect. Ron Artest will definitely implode before the season ends. Like I have said, over, and over, and over again, Shaq is in the twilight of his career. Shaq's best game is hovering in the paint getting jams. To consistently put 300lbs of constant friction on a set of knees and a pair of legs, something eventually will give. What happens when Walker's J's stop dropping, Jason Wiliams game is simply ugly. Whoever said that Indiana have a deeper bench needs to put down the Yak. Jaschieveaushesakrnius can bury the deep ball, but where is his defense? Samaki Walker as a backup, I don't think so. He sat on the Wizards bench all of last year, he was so bad, they didn't even let him play in garbage time. Danny Granger looks decent, but unproven.
