@Wells222 o'brien said murphy will likely start the majority of the games with hibbert coming off the bench

Troy is a far more experienced veteran who can certainly handle the C position. He reminds me of a bigger, stronger Dirk Nowitski with his ability to clean the glass along with that sweet stroke. Roy really does need to watch & learn at this point.

I see the rest of the season looking good with Murphy averaging close to 15 boards, 15 points and 45 minutes a game. Great move JOb!

I doubt those trade rumors have any substance. Troy really represents a new era in the NBA where the C can hit from anywhere on the court including 25 feet out. Seriously, I think he's going to change the game. All we needed to do was sit Roy down. I have not been this optimistic since the 90's.

I know it won't happen, but I would be so happy if Jim got fired. This team needs to be developing the youth, get a coach in here that understands this. If we aren't focusing on the young players, there really is no reason for me to watch anymore this season.

Meh. He did it against the Cavs because he knew we'd lose either way. Now he can point at this game and say, ... "See, we lost with Troy coming off the bench. That's why I start him!"

He'll start next game.

Hopefully we can see this kind of rotation (Roy starting w/ small line-up) for 8-10 more games and see if it settles in. The Cavs/Lakers games showed that we clearly are not capable of competing with real playoff teams, so there's nothing to lose in trying to find a stable, developing roster.

Sorry Seth, you just crapped out on your bet.

I've used the green font many times before...but this is real. I've been converted to a believer after considering how well Troy will open up the middle for Rush, Granger and Price. We need to get Roy out of the way. He's slowing down the pace of the offense and cannot stroke the 3.

Think about it. If Troy plays a full 48 minutes, we may get 35-40 threes up a game. That translates over 100 points just on 3's....while the opposition only scores about 65.

I spent the last 24 hours analyzing tape and I'm finally beginning to understand where JOb has this team headed. It's clear this team is improving. We won more than twice as many games in January as compared to December. We are on a roll and this last move putting Murphy in charge of the paint is perhaps one of the best moves I have seen in professional sports. In short, JOb is taking a page from the Colts playbook by going small....but he's doing even better. He's going small and weak to fool the opposition and catch them off guard.

People seem to think that big, strong, long, athletic guys help you control the interior but they forget that we will have a quicker, smaller team crashing the boards that can slip quickly into the gaps to grab boards. We have guys with a "nose for the ball" like Murphy who is unparalleled when it comes to sweeping the glass. I really can't believe we limit his minutes in some games to under 40.

Seriously, I really didn't understand JOb until just recently. Perhaps he clued me into it when he started stressing small ball recently. I apologize for any disparaging remarks I made before I really got to understand the game plan. We all really need to realize that he is in a much, much better position to know how to win games and isn't going to let the public in on all this cutting edge Pacer strategy.

I talked to my brother-in-law yesterday about the Pacers, specifically Murphy starting in place of Roy. He's the definition of a casual fan. His general comments included "boy they suck" and "I won't watch a game if Troy is in, but I will if Roy is playing." Needless to say, I was mesmerized by his insight. Anyway, what does this mean? Probably nothing, but it's a take from someone outside the board.

Troy shot 66% from 3 tonight, grabbed 8 boards and scored 14 points. He also had 3 assists and a steal...effectively making him responsible for 21 points....all in just 32 minutes. Yet another excellent game.

You want to know what's even more amazing? He did not pick up a single foul. Not one. Savvy defensive players know how to avoid committing the foul...and clearly the refs are respecting Troy's defense a lot more than some of you.

Keep in mind this was probably a below average game for Troy. I seriously think people need to stop expecting Troy to completely carry this team every night.

Edit: If you carry that 21 points in 32 minutes to 5 players operating at the same level for 48 minutes, we would have 157 points on the board. That's just how good Troy is and why he's terribly under-rated on this board.

I'm sorry, BNG. The only reason the Troy did not make the All Star team is all of the stupid minutes awarded to Roy all year.

I recognize that Troy is much better than he showed tonight. His +/- probably understates his true value to the outcome of this game. Brandon must have weighed him down. He clearly belongs on other teams who do not saddle themselves with committing unnecessary fouls.

I still worry about you, though. Maybe sometime all of us non-believers can all get together and have a totally unexpected "conversation" with you...

You think Bird likes it that Danny Angie has a title that he doesn't, as an executive?

An how did Danny get the players to get that title? His team sucked, and he mostly lucked into it.

I don't think the Pacers suck like the Celtics did, I think we need one good pick in the draft to set us up, but how do we get that pick?

Would you say not fixing something that is broke is tanking?

I don't think Bird would every admit to tanking unless it was on his deathbed. However, not fixing what's broken fits in very well with Bird's three year plan.

NuffSaid
02-02-2010, 04:07 PM
I want to try and be as fair as I can be concerning JOB's decision to play Murphy more over Hibbert. On the surface, I can certainly understand why so many of us (myself included) disagree with this, but when you really take a step back and look at things, you realize JOB really has little choice.

Hibbert is progressing, but he's no Shaq. He's no Dwight Howard. Nor is he anywhere near an Amare Stoudimire. In time, he might become the type of player who, like these others, can anchor the defense at Center, but he's not there yet. He's not at a point in his abilities nor in his career where he can come in an get the benefit of a foul call. He's not at a point in his talent level where he can dominate the paint and place fear in the heart of his opponent. He's slowing developing into a fine post player, but it's still going to take him some time - years - before he gets to where the most feared and respected Big Men are in this league. That said, I understand based on the skillsets he has shown why so many would rather see him start over Murphy. And I can respect that; but Hibbert isn't ready to be that post-player who can carry this team. Not yet.

Hibbert's continued development coupled with the absence of Foster and Hansborough has left the Pacers' front-court very depleted. Yes, we still have Solo and McRoberts, but neither really space the floor nor provide the defense necessary to force opponents to defend the paint and instead leave our perimeter shooters alone. With Hibbert, defenses will start to respect him more; they will defend him. Same could be said for Murphy once he steps outside the paint to score from the field. But neither Solo nor McRoberts will garner that type of defensive respectability.

As to the small-ball style of play JOB has decided to stick with, again I may not like it but I understand why he's doing it. He's trying to give this team as many scoring opportunities he can by "loading the floor" with shooters. Only problem is our shooters aren't scoring the ball very well at all from the perimeter. To this, it's classic "live by the 3, die by the 3." Right now, the Pacers are dying by it miserably.

The other aspect to going small is JOB is trying to take advantage our our player's speed. We have a few players who can score off the dribble, and our guys are pretty fast in transition. So, if we are able to get rebounds - which is another area this team seems to be getting beat terribly at - players can get out and run for easy baskets...provided they make those easy layups which as I've mentioned above the Pacers are missing foolishly.

What would I do if I were JOB?

Go with the more traditional lineup.

I'd start Hibbert (C) and McRoberts (PF) and use Solo (C) and Murphy (PF) as backups, and here's why...

With both Hibbert and Murphy you know you'll get some solid offense. So, why not split them up to ensure you have a solid scorer among both post-groups? When Hibbert is in the lineup, go with more traditional offensive sets, i.e., half-court. You can even run with this group because McRoberts has very quick feet and Hibbert has proven he can keep up in an uptempo style. By switching to Murphy and Solo, you still get the 1-Big, 4-Small group because you use Murphy as a 3-ball scorer, but you also get someone in Solo who can play above the rim. By keeping both of these players (McRoberts and Solo) on the bench, I think JOB is making a huge mistake by playing down to the defense instead of finding ways to stay with a more traditional style of play while at the same time getting Solo and McRoberts valuable playing time. Therefore, IMO, JOB is not taking advantage of their strengths: speed, quickness, aggressiveness.

Neither Solo nor McRoberts will give us very many points, but what they will do is try very hard to outhustle everyone on the floor in much the same ways that Foster and Hansborough provided. I think it's a big mistake not to play these guys. Still, I understand what JOB is trying to do. I just think he's wrong.

It's sad that many of us here figured this out a long time ago and JO'B ( for some reason ) refuses to give either Solo or McRoberts enough minutes to help relieve our Frontcourt woes. I mentioned this in the other thread.....Granger ( since his return a few weeks ago ) has probably played more minutes at the PF spot then Solo and McRoberts over the same span of time.

I'm not suggesting that Solo or McRoberts is any real answer to our problems....they simply are bandaids for our frontcourt until we get another real Frontcourt Player in the lineup ( whether it be Hansbrough or someone we eventually draft ).

CableKC,

I agree with you and apparently so does Asst Coach Conner. It's just a shame that coach O'Brien won't make this same assessment. Solo and McRob needs to play not just for their own sake, but for the sake of this team.
