Main thing , is we absolutely MUST keep Duncan out of the paint .. This is exactly where we NEED Hibbert and McRoberts to step up and see what they can do..

defense defense defense....

I've never seen a team that leaves so many 3 point shooters wide open. Whether it's the corner or top of the key, how often do we see a Pacer 'defender' scrambling to get out on a wide open 3 point shooter?

This happens too much to blame the players... It's a function of the system.

One more loss while our young players waste another evening on the bench is not just one more loss. Especially, when Murphy and Foster are playing terrible. And Dunleavy isn't playing much better. Hibbert, Rush, and McRoberts would be better served making the same silly mistakes.

Is Roy Hibbert starting to look like J.O. or is it just my imagination? The headband and wristband.

Hibbert looks real good considering his pine riding of late...

It is sad , that more plays aren't fed to him more in the post... I think he could be very nice with the hookshot and the inside offense...

I love seeing him palm the ball up in the air , so damn high , it's out of everyones reach with his wingspan... then when he goes to the hoop...

I know this is obvious but, TJ Ford is playing horrible tonight and Jack isn't playing much better.

Hibbert looks retarded wearing a headband.
That is an offensive word.
