When the Trail Blazers last played the Pacers two<br>weeks ago Indiana was smack in the middle of a<br>six-game losing streak during which Roy Hibbert<br>looked as imposing as a titmouse and every<br>opponent seemed to score 110. The Pacers have<br>since fired Coach Jim O'Brien and rejuvenated their<br>young center by letting him play near the basket<br>where he is comfortable instead of out by the foul<br>line where he's not. The result has been two straight<br>double-doubles from Hibbert and two straight Indiana<br>victories. Granted these came against Toronto and<br>Cleveland but...CONTINUE READING AT BLAZERSEDGE (http://www.blazersedge.com/2011/2/3/1973999/game-50-preview-trail-blazers-vs-pacers)</TD></TR></TABLE>

I don't think anyone is gonna stop him completely. Hopefully Josh can guard him without picking up quick/dumb fouls. Then we can throw Psycho-T at him. But late in the game I have a feeling we might try Danny on him, but we'll see.

Teams have been getting away with that lately against us. And it's been blantant.

Also, I like that Vogel gives Collison a few minutes with the bench rotation and than Price a few minutes with the starters. Both need to get used to running the offense with both groups of players.

Let's see if we can maintain this pressure. We are doing a heck of a job dictating to them. They have made some pretty nice/lucky baskets. We tend to have a lull in the second quarter. I would like to see us make a strong push and have great effort out there this quarter.

That was a great start. Great defense, they are only shooting 32%. I expect our offense to cool off a bit as we are shooting 55%. But we gotta keep attacking the rim and going to Roy when he is in. Play seems to be much cleaner tonight.

The trailblazers do not have as many weapons as we do. Other than some air balls and missed free throws we are looking very solid. With the right coach this will be a top 4 team in the east within the next 2 years.

I'm interested in seeing how Collison does in the zone, but really..we needed Dun in there. Typically Price is good in it..but he was all "airball airball brick brick" then we had Dahntay..and PG was invisible. Hans typically knows to go to the middle of a zone, but he didn't for whatever reason..and we had Foster in who can't score.

So essentially, I think we needed Dun in more than anyone. When BRush comes back we'll have a much better second unit.

Maybe. It could just be a philosophy difference.

The main thing I see that is different is he is trying to drive more and is attempting to get more defensive rebounds. For all we know it was because Jim was telling Danny to shoot quick 3s, and the quick 3 is easiest to make when you run to the other end and keep your defender constantly working to try to get back in time to contest the shot. If his defender is snoozing, Danny gets an open 3 as long as we get the defensive rebound.

Not saying this is what happened, just a thought I had. And yes, I like this Danny Granger much better for what it's worth. :)
