    Am I the only one that didn't want Granger to take that last shot?

    I'm glad he made it....but I really would have preferred to go to the hot hand ( Hibbert ) or Hansbrough ( who I hope would have gotten an "and 1" ).

    Before someone says it...I'm not complaining....I just would have preferred to go with someone taking a higher percentage shot.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Stop complaining. Seriously. DG is still the best player on the team.

    You must have missed the 2nd part of that post.

    I wasn't complaining....with the game on the line like that....I just preferred that we take a higher percentage shot ( as in anything Hibbert or Hansbrough would have taken ) then a midrange jumpshot....which I suspected Granger would take.

    Sorry I just don't see Hibbert as being physically strong enough to impose his will on an end of the game situation. They are going to double him hard as soon as he touches the ball and it's going to result in a less than quality shot. Wouldn't have minded seeing Tyler set up with a shot from the top of the key, he's just so money from there. But seeing him barrel into the paint for a game winner, like I said in my other post, I just see the refs not giving him a call if that is what you are going to rely on.

    Hibbert scored at least twice on the "Queen of NY" at the end of the game. Given the tied score with 7 seconds left....I would have thought that it would have been better to attack the basket, attempt to score and/or get some FTAs out of it. To me, I'd rather count on Hibbert and Hansbrough scoring down low cuz they have a better chance at drawing a Foul.

    Personally I think feeding a big for the last shot is a difficult situation. Too easy for contact to change the shot and have the refs swallow their whistles in a late game situation. I was comfortable with Granger taking the shot, and you could see it was money as soon as it left his hand.

    I said the same thing in the game thread. But that is just my preference in basketball. When the game is on the line I would prefer to attack the rim for the highest percentage shot and the possibility of drawing a foul. I didn't say anything about who should take the last shot, just that I wanted the last shot to go to the rim.

    I was screaming "don't get the ball to Granger!" at the TV...only cuz I was afraid that he was going to take a jump shot and clank it. But he did....sort of...attack the basket and scored over Shawne "I wish I had a high of a ceiling as Paul George" Williams.

    It was in a Sports Illustrated article a couple years ago. Roy Williams keeps that picture on his desk as a reminder of just how lucky he was to coach that "big rascal."

    I think it really embodies the nature of Tyler Hansbrough. He's got this big grin on his face because his team won that game. That's all he cares about. Not stats, not fame, not individual awards, and not how many cheap shots he takes... he just wants his team to win.

    I can promise you he feels exactly that way as a Pacer. All he cares about is getting the win.

    I didn't mind him taking it per se, he'd shot fairly well. But the ISO? I mean two guys came over to him and hands up near his face. He busted a big time make there, but it seems like you could get a better look against that team with those foul/size issues.


    Hans was shooting a solid rate on his jumpers, maybe 50% on the long stuff, and Amare was out with 5 fouls for that last possession. Maybe Vogel was scared to risk a TO, but with a tie game and that much time you could run a high PnR with DC/Hans and have Danny as the wing option where he'd basically get the same exact shot he took anyway if they had to bail out to him.

    Glad he showed up as the team star again, out of nowhere seemingly.


    Nice to see Dahntay continuing to fill in the way you'd like a vet specialist off the bench to do. When he's making shots while not dominating the attempts he's a pretty nice piece in the rotation.



    Love the game from Hans for 3 reasons:

    1) When he's hitting the long jumpers (especially the turnaround jumper) he's a major problem for teams.

    2) His body check of Amare which was a foul by any non-1995 NBA standard but went uncalled and set a tone.

    3) The extremely rare power dunk in serious traffic, not off a running start with guys clearing space. That felt a lot more like a true PF than a hustling, jump shooting PF.



    Collison was crap for the first 6 or so minutes, and really was modest the entire first half. Then he broke the ankles on Billups and suddenly transformed into a guy we haven't seen in months. Talk about out of nowhere. The guy that's been dribbling off his own foot or driving into traffic with nowhere to go suddenly got some mojo back. My buddy and I both though the Billups play boosted DC's confidence level.

    Helpful? Um, just slightly.


    Hibbert was also producing more of his horrible offense to start the game, missing standard low post shots and just not in a groove. Then somewhere in the 2nd half he started making some passes, the blocks started racking up, and Amare got in foul trouble. And out of nowhere Amigo #2 also returned.


    And Danny...well he appeared to show up right from the start. He was far more active in all areas. Area 55 chanted and whooped when Granger hit the floor for the loose ball (talk about rare sightings lately).

    And most importanly the dude carried a MAJOR SMILE down the stretch, and I mean before that final shot went in. He looked happy, he looked like he was enjoying the team again. It was like a rebirth.



    WARNING - MAYBE THIS IS JUST A KNICKS THING.
    They don't play defense and they don't have size or force. That plays right into the style of Vogel's Pacers. There are some tough games coming up that present very different challenges.


    But wasn't it nice to have a night where the team cared which allowed the fans to start caring again?


    PS - Tyler, Collison and Danny were the MVP guys on the night, but McBob had to be the highlight of the night on that monster oop. I love how he busts it on transition and I love that they spotted him for that pass. I was cheering and yelling before he even went up for it, you could see it coming a mile away. Beautiful.

    Nice post.

    Darren's confidence is really tied to how well he's scoring, and we need a confident darren, he's best when he's attacking aggressively, and when he's blown by you a few times he can get his pull up jumper at will, which he is lethal at (sans the recent slump). We're going to need a Darren that can make Rose and Rondo work defensively to have a chance at the next two.

    Was cracking up reading a thread from the Knicks fan boards trying to get people to chant MVP whenever Tyler went to the free throw line at MSG to try and encourage Amare to play any sort of defense.

    Exciting game, but it will be quite a different one with Boston.

    Their guards will eat us alive if we are not ready.

    By far the best post I've seen you put on here. However, your MVP candidates for the game I agree with, but you missed a big one.

    Roy Hibbert needs to be included. He may have only dropped 15, compared to 30,26 and 24, but he made some BIG baskets towards the end and some even BIGGER rebounds for this game.

    HIB! HIB!

    He owed me a couple after I'm up there yelling "Dunk it on his head!" and instead of thundering one over Turiaf he spun and tossed a slop pass over his head.
