Will try to hold out hope for the home team, but wish that Foster was around to contest some of Dwight Howard's shots. Not gonna happen tonight though. He's still out from his last battle with the big guy. Always love to see Vince though. Still entertaining to watch.

Well, O'Brien has successfully kept Hibbert on the bench long enough that he probably cooled off.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rush has already broken the all-time NBA record for most in and out shots.

I watch around 5-8 games per week and it seems to me that there are more shots going in and out like that in general. I wondered if the new rims had anything to do with it but maybe I am just seeing it more because I was aware of the new rims coming into the season and so I am paying more attention to what the ball does on it. :shrug:

AJ, that pass was awesome.

Dr. Awesome
01-05-2010, 07:45 PM
AJ Price = Mark Jackson
Roy Hibbert = Wilt Chamberlin
Mike Dunleavy = Some 3rd grader who airs 5 shots in a row.

purdue101
01-05-2010, 07:46 PM
AJ Price is a very good player for falling in the 2nd round. What great vision, nice jumper, and effort of D.

vnzla81

AJ is showing some game, he can pass the ball and shoot it too...:)

Daniel33

Great performance by AJ so far, enjoy watching this young guy, he settles the tempo, thats propably what we need, while earl is trying to make the game faster.

Good on Rush for fighting through that moving screen and drawing attention to the offensive foul on Howard.

Hibbert is having the best game of his pro career. Even when Howard is in there he is killing Orlando.

I like that Hibbert has a certain swagger and confidence in his game against a top-notch Center like Dwight and a decent Center like Gortat.

Hope to see him score in the second half, but I love Rush's defense.

magic under 40pts at half? normally we have a hard time keeping teams under 40 in the first qt let alone the half...

ilive4sports
01-05-2010, 08:08 PM
Wow, Roy Hibbert, taking it to Howard (at least from what the box score says). Just put it on and its at halftime obviously. Price seems to be doing well too. And we are playing defense? Wow.

Midcoasted
01-05-2010, 08:09 PM
Hope to see him score in the second half, but I love Rush's defense.

Rush is a defensive specialist and its just an added bonus when he gets hot. RUshs offensive game has always reminded me of a Grangers to an extent. What I mean here is that it will take more than two years to fully develop.

Dr. Awesome

If Roy Hibbert goes 36/10 this game, I'll streak all the way to Indiana.

A lot of us have observed that Mike is making uncharacteristically silly mistakes lately. Magic announcers just commented on how bad those last two shots were and how Dunn is usually smarter than that.

Luther having a bit of a tough time with Carter. If only I could fuse Luther's offense with Brandon's defense and create the mighty Head Rush. ;)

If he does, it will end up that it never really happened. Roy's too big and slow to be effective.

Mike Dunleavy's air ball count tonight: 6? Including one from 5 feet away.

Rush is way more aggressive offensively with this unit. I saw him actually asking for the ball. Interesting.

Pacers go to Hibbert = Pacers leading.
Pacers stop going to Hibbert = Magic leading.

I sense a trend...kinda funny that our coach doesn't.

Off topic, but do you like shooters on PS3? If so you should get SOCOM and a mic, great game.

gummy
01-05-2010, 09:04 PM
Ummm, Dwight Howard fouled Brandon as he was trying to fight through the screen. Very similar to the one where the officials called the offensive foul on Howard earlier. Clearly the officiating has changed in the 4th quarter though.

CableKC
01-05-2010, 09:05 PM
Stupid fouls on Dwight by Hibbert.....4 fouls in 4.5 minutes :banghead:

Dr. Awesome

Why hasn't O'Brien gone to Hibbert but twice this half? I honestly believe O'Brien is the worst coach I've ever seen, I'm not even saying that in a moment of frustration, I actually believe it.

I couldn't agree more. Brandon is such a big piece of our future. He defends, rebounds, and spreads the floor. It's nice to see him have a good offensive game.

CableKC

Considering that we still had 7+ minutes left in the game, Dwight is starting to be more aggressive on the Offensive end, we are playing one of the top teams in the League and we don't have any other answer to defend Dwight........it's not like we should be giving up fouls like that.

When we beat the Wolves, it was just kinda meh because I know it hurt our John Wall chances, but I really enjoyed tonight. The future is bright if we can just make 1 or 2 good moves, make a good draft choice, and find a coach who can get through to our young guys.

Heres my only problem with tonight: The Pacers went to Hibbert in the 1st half and played great. In the 3rd quarter and about 3/4 through the 4th, he hardly touched the ball. Then, at the end of the game, we went back to him and he brought home the W. Why was he not utilized in the 3rd and early 4th? O'Brien can't allow that to happen.

As great as Hibbert was, Rush was equally critical in the W. He grabbed some key boards and hit some tough shots when we were on the ropes. His D was superb, as always.

In fairness to O'Brien (who I am not a fan of, for the record), it was partly because in the second half the refs allowed Howard to climb all over Hibbert.

Very nice win tonight. I'm sure he can't wait to bench Head, McBob and Roy because they cant play fast enough to suit...But seriously, what happens when we feed Roy? We have a better chance to win. I was amazed they let Howard foul out.
