    Default Danny Granger's breakout game

    December 17, 2005, mark it down as Granger's breakout game. I see him building from here.

    We all know about his rebounding, his activity on the defensive end, but tonight it looked like he was going to hit every shot

    He needs to be starting. Our starting lineup should be

    Tins
    Jack (or Fred or Saras)
    Danger
    J.O.
    Cro

    I can't see Jack going back to the 2...team looked great second half with Jax out

    Saras is not losing a starting spot...
    Granger starts at the 3... Jax comes of the bench

    Why Not Us ?

    He had 3 MONSTER blocks tonight, and his shots really helped us out. 2 times when no one could hit anything he hit 2 big jumpers. Big props to Danny.

    Now we just need to get a starting-caliber SG so we can move Danny into the starting line-up.

    More like Pippen. Pippen played good D and did everything well. Kinda looks like him too.

    Danny Granger is already a far better rebounder and shot blocker than Ron Artest ever was.

    To think, I only caught the 4th quarter of Danny's breakout game.

    I mentioned this a couple weeks back, after I believe Kstat noted him as an "offensive liability", that he just needs the playing time. That comes with experience on the court.

    As I mentioned back then, we saw what he was capable of doing in college. For whatever reason, his shot had not been falling up until this point. It could have to do with nerves, or not feeling welcome within the offense (afraid to take the shot), but whatever it is - he needs to be included in the offense. Perhaps he can be like a Shawn Marion-type player. No plays are run for him, but he still manages to put points up on the board. At least that's what I'd like from him at this point, because I think he can do more than that in a few years. I've been one of his biggest fans since we drafted him.

    This kid was supposed to go top 5, remember. If he was on one of those teams, I'm sure they would be asking him to carry more of an offensive load then he is asked to do here (in which case, he'd be feeling more comfortable to take shots on a lottery team). Instead, here, he's had to wait his time and just get them where he can. He seems to be making very efficient use of his time.

    We need to find a way to get Granger as many minutes as possible. Our defensive rebounding has been atrocious this year. Clearly, DG will be a big help in this area.

    I also noted this in the old Granger thread a couple weeks ago, but Danny is a baller. As long as you can play the game, you'll earn minutes somewhere. The coach will find a way to keep you involved.

    Just look at Charlie Villanueva - when he was drafted, everyone said he would get no PT behind Bosh. But the guy can play basketball, so compromises are made, and PT is found. You earn your time, and when you have flat-out skills like Granger, Villanueva, etc. you will find your time on the court.

    here is a crazy idea... wait for it...... bench jackson...sorry Stephen... we need DG in there.. and I don't see Sarunas getting benched so Jackson and Granger can start... just my humble opinion

    Why Not Us ?

    Did anyone else catch where JO was saying he was such a fan of Danny in college? Between that and us trying to get Al, I'm starting to think Jermaine is TPTB.

    If Danny's going to break out, it means we have no use for Al at the 3. I'd still take Lewis, though, and play Ron at both backup spots.

    Trade Ron for a 2nd-option shooting guard or a big man.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Maybe Rick will play Al at the 5. Or, perhaps he's going to move Danny to the 5 to open up more minutes for Gill at the 3.

    Maybe we can trade Jackson and Ron for a starting caliber SG? And start Granger at SF? I bet that could work.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
