    Default Granger = EC Player of the Week

    Granger, McGrady Named NBA Players of the Week
    Posted Nov 5 2007 3:27PM


    Rockets' Home Page
    Pacers' Home Page

    NEW YORK, Nov. 5 – The Indiana Pacers’ Danny Granger and the Houston Rockets’ Tracy McGrady today were named the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Tuesday, Oct. 30 through Sunday, Nov. 4.

    Granger, in winning his first NBA Player of the Week honor, helped the Pacers open the season 3-0 for only the second time in the last 12 seasons by averaging 22.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals. The third-year forward converted half his field goal attempts, including a league-high 10 three-pointers. Granger scored at least 20 points in three consecutive games for the first time in his career.

    McGrady led the Rockets to a 3-0 record, averaging a league-high 32.3 points on .500 shooting. McGrady also dished out 4.7 assists and pulled down 4.3 rebounds. In scoring 47 points at Utah Nov. 1, McGrady broke his own mark for most points by a Houston player against Utah. The Rockets opened the season 3-0 for the first time since 1996 and only the seventh time in team history.

    Here is a closer look at the week for Granger and McGrady:

    Danny Granger, Indiana Pacers


    Oct. 31 vs. Washington: Recorded a 20-point, 13-rebound double-double in Indiana’s 119-110 overtime win. He scored seven of his points in OT.

    Nov. 2 vs. Miami: Tallied 25 points and nine boards in Indiana’s 87-85 victory.

    Nov. 3 @ Memphis: Scored 23 points in the Pacers’ 121-111 win.

    Tracy McGrady, Houston Rockets


    Oct. 30. @ L.A. Lakers: Tallied 30 points, six rebounds and four assists in Houston’s 95-93 win.

    Nov. 1 @ Utah: Poured in 47 points to go with four rebounds and four assists in the Rockets’ 106-95 road victory.

    Nov. 3 vs. Portland: Scored 20 points and dished six assists in an 89-80 win.

    Other nominees for Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week were Boston’s Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce; Detroit’s Chauncey Billups; New Jersey’s Richard Jefferson; New Orleans’ Chris Paul; Orlando’s Hedo Turkoglu; Phoenix’s Shawn Marion and Steve Nash; and San Antonio’s Manu Ginobili.
    Looks like he won't be so under-rated anymore.

    That 17th pick in the 2005 Draft is turning out to be the biggest steal in Pacers history - especially when you look at some of the flops that were selected before him.

    ...how the hell is Granger at #17 a bigger steal than Reggie Miller at #11?

    Wow, and many of us think Dunleavy has played just as well as Danny.

    Both have been great. Danny's defense in the Miami game was just outstanding

    All of us knew that Granger was a steal that day he was projected to be a top ten. Drafting him at 17 was a no brainer. Breakout years for Granger and Dun equals many victories....... We were lucky that Ron Artest was here for a short time after drafting Granger... remember the talk about he and RA going head to head in practice before the season started. I'm sure Ron was a big help to Dannys defense.

    because reggie was supposed to go lower - he was a stretch. remember alford was meant for that spot.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Reggie was selected basically where people thought he would be and kinda flew under the radar coming out of college. He was a great surprise but he still was a lottery pick.

    Granger fell out of the lottery after being predicted to be picked as high as #6 by a lot of media types. He then slipped all the way to 17 for the likes of Charlie Villanueva, Channing Frye, Ike Diogu, Fran Vazquez, Yaroslav Korolev, Antoine Wright, and Joey Graham. Granted a some of those guys may go on to have good NBA careers but half of them have been traded by the original teams that drafted them.

    Anyway, that's what I was thinking when I typed what I typed about DG.

    I don't know if you're joking, but if it were me I would switch Bynum and Jermaine, at least for now.
    That'll do.

    Which is why Kobe's so excited about staying in L.A. He wants to play with the next great 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.

    Kinda off-topic, but Ike also got some love with a front page pic on nba.com in the power rankings headline.

    I'm happy for Danny Gee or "Hollywood" as Travis calls him.

    Oh, and about Ike. I saw that too. Pacers dominating NBA.com?
