Peck, I haven't had a chance to fully digest your post.
Yet your analysis on Troy's defense last night was spot on. There were probably 5 occasions where he just laid the red carpet down for McGee or Blatche to do what they want in the lane.
I haven't watched a full Pacers game in quite some time. But being at a game, at center court, in the 10th row I fully realized how little the Pacers value the ball, and how many offensive possessions they squander out of simple carelessness.
Roy Hibbert though, looked like an All-Star last night. His development has been a thing of beauty.
