Trivia Question: Which former Pacers and Hawks player was named to five NBA All-Defensive teams and three All-Star teams during his NBA career?
Answer: Dan Roundfield was a three-time NBA All-Star in six seasons with the Hawks in the late 1970’s and early ‘80s, and who started his career with the Pacers and played for them from 1975–78. Known for his defensive prowess, Roundfield was named to the NBA’s All-Defensive teams five times (three times on the first team, twice on the second) during his 11-year career.

Pacers have won the last 4 meetings (I think)...Daniels, Granger, and Rush hae pretty solid defense..but nevertheless, JJ will have a good game, not because our defense is bad, because he is just that good

Based on the matchups and several other factors. Atlanta is very prone to laying eggs. Several Hawks are overperforming. They're not a good outside shooting team (even though they're 7th in the NBA in 3 pt), etc. etc. Great home record but under .500 on the road. They played last night. The Pacers are overdue and should be more hungry to win.

Well, we are keeping them to 39.6% shooting while taking 6 more FGA then us. If there is a bright lining, it's there....usually the opposing team would be shooting 50% from the field.

Watch what he does when the shot goes up - he almost always does the right thing. He usually blocks his man so far out that it clears the way for someone else to get the rebound. Pay attention, I have been and his poor rebounding numbers aren't the full story - though he has missed a few easy ones this year.

I mean, watch solely him. No one else for the defensive possesions. When the shot goes up, he clears his man. Murphy was doing it before Hibbert started starting(hehe), but I think part of Murphy's rebounding numbers can be attributed to Hibbert just clearing his man completely.

Rasho is a very effective player if he plays for 15-20 minutes a game.....he does everything well in JO'Bs offense, he passes the ball well from the top of the key, he hits open jumpers, he finishes well......the problem is that he simply gets tired if he plays too many minutes.

That's what I've been saying about Hibbert, JO'B uses him as the "Box Out" guy on the team. That's a fundamental part of Basketball and Hibbert is one of those guys that have good fundamentals.

The refs would call a foul on him just for walking out on the floor.

In the 3rd QTR when the Hawks were in Foul trouble for 8+ minutes, I would have wanted Hibbert to get some minutes.....he's good at drawing fouls inside the paint...especially against a small opposing Frontcourt.

But my guess is that JO'B will play both Foster and Rasho way more minutes then they can handle where they will be running on fumes at the end of the games as opposed to giving Hibbert some burn so that they can rest and finish the game.

Unless he is on fire on the offensive end, I think that Granger should be more aggressive on Offense until the 4th QTR since the opposing team starts to clamp down on him towards the end of the game.
