Analyzing The Anomalous: Paul George vs. Dallas<br><br>This is what Frank Vogel had to say about Paul George: the number one<br>reason he enjoys waking up every morning to coach the Indiana Pacers.<br>With George Hill out indefinitely, George’s development process might<br>have been placed on the entrails of a jet engine. His outside/inside ability<br>is unique, as is his ability to defend multiple positions and seemingly<br>thrive in nearly every aspect of the game. Following the peaks of his<br>career could be one of the nicer things we have to look forward to as NBA<br>fans these next 5-7 years. Something about last night’s game (apart from<br>the 30 points with 7 threes) makes it feel like we were witness to the<br>baptism of a truly significant basketball player. While people pick holes in<br>Indiana’s brilliantly patient roster building strategy and speculate as to<br>what high profile superstar they’ll either trade for or sign with all their cap<br>space, Paul George...CONTINUE READING SHAKY ANKLES (http://shakyankles.com/2012/02/04/analyzing-the-anomalous-paul-george-vs-dallas/)</TD></TR></TABLE>

As the Orlando Magic's recent stretch of six losses in eight<br>games illustrated, they aren't a terribly good offensive team.<br>They scored a franchise-low 56 points in a loss to the Boston<br>Celtics, but also had outings of 67 points (against the New<br>Orleans Hornets) and 69 points (against the Philadelphia 76ers)<br>in that span. Tom Ziller, SB Nation's NBA editor, recently posted<br>a story examining what he called offensive volatility, a measure<br>of a given player's scoring average relative to his standard<br>deviation from his scoring average.

Frankly, to this point I just want them to play great basketball. Like we did last night. Somewhere between coming off of a great road win in Dallas and my refusal of believing that we could go 5-0 this week, I just cannot see us winning this. Then again, this team has proved me wrong (for the better) a lot of times. So, I cannot make a prediction. I'm just pumped :)

What? Expect a loss, Magic played last night too and they had to take a 2 hour bus trip into Indy. It's a fair game.

Great preview by Tim. I wasn't sure about how our starting 5 ranked, but I knew it had to be good, but I was surprised they were that good!

I also agree about DC running the team very very well. I think he is the weakest link, but it's not very weak.

I hope Frank let them all sleep in until 1 or 2pm.

Orlando has it worse though. They played last night and have to stay in Cincy cause of no hotels.

I don't think being tired is a good excuse tonight with Orlando's situation

The only time we lost at home this season was against Orlando and if am right, like today,it was on the back of a great road win(Lakers).That's what I'm afraid of.Some guys here said that the mentality is not the right one when it's a home game right after a road trip and especially when we have won the last match.Anyway,here is hoping for another win,extend our streak to 5 games.I hate playing Orlando cause if they find get hot behind the 3pt line,i'm afraid they will kill us again and i also hate Ryan Anderson.There i said it.Go Pacers.

Lets hope PG keeps his aggressive mentality.

Pacers seem to have adjusted very well last time. Hopefully we stick to the same strategy. If Jameer does not play then we win this game IMO. But if he is playing then it's 50/50.


I have a good feeling that we are gonna come out on top regardless. Pacers playing some good basketball.

This is from Friday AM. Haven't seen any updates today.


Hill, who was coming off a strong game against Orlando on Sunday, hopes he'll be out no more than three weeks.

The Pacers should have a better idea on how long he'll be out once they return to Indianapolis on Saturday. They play at Dallas on Friday.

I think that there should be a new rule in the NBA, where, much like in football, a coach can throw out a flag to have a pi$$poor officiating call reviewed on the monitors... Like , maybe with a limit of only 2 flags per team per game being allowed ..

That , I think would clean up ALOT of this bad officiating and ultimately do wonders for the game of basketball at the NBA level...

It is an ugly game, indeed. But I'm loving the confidence that Paul George is showing. He is sooo confident the last few days. You can see it in the way that he is running down the floor.

All we need, is Danny to start hitting his shots. Do this and we're gonna be good :)

As expected, this game is ugly. Long week for both teams. But its tied and in an ugly game like this, I like our chances.

Plus, according to Tim, we have the best third quarters ever so it would make sense for us to really bring it in the second half.

LMAO that's not an indication at all of who I think will win the game. Guess the score is about giving yourself the best chance to win the competition. Last year I came in 2nd by almost always picking scores that differ from the majority. This year we've actually been winning these games, but when 90% of the board always picks the Pacers to win and by a similar score, the odds are in your favor if you pick the opposite of popular opinion. Can't believe you'd use that to say I'm a pessimist or some sort of "troll". And I'm one of the few who has stuck up for Hibbert and Collison since they've been Pacers...
