Looking for a "Danny Granger! 2008 All Star, future of Indianapolis. Leader of the team!!"
So.. What's the deal with Danny.
I understand this team is worse than 2008 Detroit Lions, I really do. I also understand he had the torn plantar fascia as well. But come on...
Tonight Danny had eight points and went 3-13 FG and 1-5 3pt. 2 reb. 3 asst. 4 fouls. and 2 turnovers in 30 minutes.
Dahntay Jones had 8 points in 12 minutes. Danny was tied (Granger, Jones, AJ) for the lowest point total on the team tonight with 8. Hell, even AJ Price had one more board than Danny tonight, along with same amount of steals (1) and 0 turnovers all in 18 min.
Last game against Cleveland he went 6-23 FG and 1-8 3pt. in 40 minutes finishing with 13 pts. But you better get 13 points if you chuck it up 23 times.
Again, AJ scored 10 pts and he played 20 less minutes than Danny did.
The Lakers game.. If you take away FT's (5) Danny would have had 9 points going 4-8 FG and 1-3 3pt in 30 min. Not a terrible game but I'd expect more for our 9 mil we're paying him this year. Not to mention the 14 million in 2013. I mean Luther Head played 15 minutes and scored 9 points making $884,000.
This is a recent game overview but we've all seen it this year. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Granger fan. It just concerns me a bit that there is absolutely no passion or fire from Danny this season. I saw it the very first game of the year. Something was wrong with our beloved Danny. Where's the guy I saw bust his teeth out to fight Paul Pierce for a loose ball??
So I ask you, what's eating Granger Danger?
