If we go out there tonight and play like chickens I'm going to have a fit.

I haven't posted in a few days but people seem to have a bad memory of how good of players we have. DC was great a week before the All-Star game.

If you want a better PG then I guess we better get another center. Sounds the same to me.

I'd also like to mention everythings bigger in Texas. Here's to DC getting 20 points and 20 assists and Roy 20 points and 20 assists! :buddies:

I've found that a really good head fake, tends to fake out refs and they call a travel.

edit: I'd still go with Derrick Rose or Manu (Just because he's been the best player on what has been the best team by a large margin)

Yes, better then point forward McRoberts.

In real time I thought it was a push off foul but after seeing the replay it was a bad call.

so Josh comes out and plays great for 5 minutes then doesn't play since. Tyler is playing well so play Josh instead of Foster.

It wasn't remotely close to a foul, he is just way stronger than the defender. Stupid refs.

Extreme aggression in the paint. I wish Roy had it.

By the way, the boxscore has Lance at 5 assists and just 1 turnover in less than 8 minutes. That's, like, a month's worth of assists for A.J. Price.

Lance is so much fun to watch. He wants to find the open man. He really works at it and has the skills to get the ball where it needs to be. The offense just stopped when AJ took over. Like night and day.

I'm not liking Danny's attitude on the floor when he's not getting the ball. I've been keeping my eye on him (mostly because my PG fanboy side wants a sub-out) and he's not hustling, he's not giving full effort, and he seems to be visibly pouting. Come on now.

Oh, and Sir Lancelot is great. I was kinda hoping he'd be in over AJ for a while longer, if DC was still sitting in the locker room.

smj887
03-04-2011, 10:46 PM
I've believed Lance could have a really successful career at this level, but even as a supporter of his, the most unbiased thing I can say is I'm really, really impressed at how good he looked there. He seemed to have a couple rookie moments, but overall he looks extremely comfortable out there and was producing.

Trophy
03-04-2011, 10:47 PM
DC has also done well so far tonight. He's been more efficient than he's recently been.

AJ has struggled and hasn't really passed the ball around.

Lance really guides the offense well.

If Paul George and Lance Stephenson both live up to their potential, the Pacers' 2010 draft would go down as one of the best in any team's history. To get that level of talent at #10 & #40 is amazing.

This Danny hatred is really reaching a new level. He's really, besides Lance, the only reason the Pacers were kept in the game towards the end there.

Was interesting watch Price play 7 minutes and get 0 assist while playing with mainly the starters. I want more Paul George over Rush or D Jones. Was interesting to watch Lance and Paul vs Kidd and Terry , they were schooled a little , but fact we had 2 -20 year olds against 2 guys with combined age of 70 was nice to see them get time against proven players.

This Danny hatred is really reaching a new level. He's really, besides Lance, the only reason the Pacers were kept in the game towards the end there.

If anything that just says how good Danny is when he gives 100%.

The team has some good energy, which is nice.

Lance had a good stretch of driving and dishing there and we were making shots, which is good. I know what everyone's going to be saying. 5 assists, woah. But that was precisely why I like him at SG. His usage rate was off the charts. (Either he drove and dish, played PnR, or took the shot himself. Essentially no other player made a decision) Perhaps that's where I differ with people. I always feel like if we're going to have a guard that wanted to be that ball dominant on the floor, it's better to have him in with a PG that'll get to decide when that player can and can not dominate. What I found more impressive was that when he got stuck, he could bail himself out without turning it over. That is refreshing. So many ball dominant guards end up turning it over when they get stuck. *looks at TJ* Still, things were working for him, easily his best game so far.

DC looks more energetic, which I think he needed more than anything. His (and Lance's, I'll call them both out) defense was abysmal, again. But his offense looked much better. I hope his ankle is okay.

AJ's gotta stay aggressive, I think. He did this at Uconn, but when other guys were playing well, he tended to be passive, and only when the team was down did he get aggressive. The bench plays much better when he's aggressive, I think. O'brien helped AJ with his game there. If AJ didn't stay aggressive, he was going out of the game, with JOB. (Sometimes he'd go out anyway..) Vogel lets him do what he wants.

Hans has got to be the most annoying player to play against. Ever.

Brandon Rush..see AJ. Although O'brien didn't help him out tin that department.

Josh is having a really good game. It's tough to guard Dirk.

Roy's been okay, he needs to box out.

Danny...Danny Danny...Peja was guarding you at times. Step it up and be a leader.

I thought Josh looked pretty good, some mistakes here and there.

Brandon..see AJ.


One thing I've noticed. I think this team over helps on defense, and struggles to recover. There isn't an excuse anymore because we don't have two guards that are letting anyone run by them. We get burned on that all the time. And it's unnecessary.
