Go Pacers !!!!!
Go Pacers !!!!!
that pacers offense, so amazing.
I thought we played pretty well. We shot the ball well. Hibbert 15 points 7 rebounds 5 blocks was a nice surprise.
2 things happen and we win that game.
1. Jarret Jack misses the half court heave that killed our momentum.
2.Paul George plays like he gives a ****.
Offense wasn't too bad tonight besides Paul. Idk what's wrong with him lately. Hibby is playing better though.
Sam Young may be our starting sf before long...
Klay Thompson killed us in the first half and Steph and Jarrett Jack finished us in the second. I just said this in the game thread but this loss isn't surprising or disappointing. The Warriors are a better basketball team than we are right now, and they were at home.
Also, we gave up so many second chance opportunities. Played great defense, then didn't get the rebound. Happened about 5 times from what I can remember.
I think Donnie and KP and have the guts to trade Paul.
Paul George has been a total dissappointment this season. He cannot score against any defender. His only points come off of uncontested breakaways or open threes. Absolutely cannot drive, create seperation and hit a midrange shot. The way he double clutches in traffic to avoid drawing a foul resulting in getting blocked or his idiotic scoop shot makes me want to go on a shooting spree.
What did lance do to not play much in the second half?
Just got home from work, didnt get a chance to see the game. Looking at the box score obviously whats standing out is PG with 0 freaking points, really? Has he ever laid a goose egg before? I dont even remember that in his rookie season. I gotta say, and i hope im not overreacting, but im starting to see his ceiling as more of a Tony Allen instead of a Rudy Gay or Iguodala. I highly doubt Gay ever posted a 0 point game in his 3rd year. The worst part is hes coming off a 4 pt game last night. 4 points in 2 games well, thats completely unacceptable to say the least.
Disappointing loss but a 2-1 west road trip I can take.
Evidence is starting to point toward PG being a good player that doesn't have the drive to be great.
Though Augustine looked bad for a lot of tonight, no one besides maybe Paul looked worse than Tyler. He is in a Funke right now, pretty much forcing Vogel to consider West for 40 minutes a game.
As long as we're doing comparisons, Harrison Barnes seemed about as effective as Danny (his draft comp) tonight. The offense is still pretty deadly. Jax is doing a great job so far this season.
The Pacers can also use some of those guards Golden state has, they can shoot, dribble and pass the ball well, the pacers don't even have one.
Paul George + 2013 1st for Shabazz/Nerlens?
As badly as we played, if Paul George had shown up we could have won. Terrible, terrible bench play from everyone. Ian still sucked even with his 10 points but at least he played with some aggression. I didn't see a solution that Vogel could have tried that would have made a difference. West, Hill and Hibbert can't play 48 minutes and we had no one to make up for PG.
Its definitely time we start seeing Ian/Roy. Tyler played way too much to start the 4th.
Paul George may end up being the biggest bust in terms of expectations that the Pacers have seen in a while.
At least Bender had an injury excuse...
