    I think tonight we saw the Hibbert and DC that everyone expected (reasonably or unreasonably) at the beginning of the season.

    That was annoying to watch. And I had the benefit of fast forwarding.

    Granger showed a lot of poise in that second half. After an abysmal start he came out and continued to take his shots until they fell, and they did. Even after missing an embarrassing layup he hustled back on defense, got the steal, and made his points at the other end.

    His line won't blow anyone away, but he was a huge part of our victory tonight.

    Think Darren wanted to show Farmer who really is the better point guard from that UCLA team? Great game by him, Roy, McBob, and second half from Danny. Roy had that look in his eye again that said he wasn't going to let this team lose. Danny came through in the clutch and McBob picked up some of the scoring especially since Tyler didn't have a huge game.

    By the way...Darren's line:
    15 points
    12 assists
    6 rebounds

    For as poorly as he's played the last few months, I thought Brandon stepped in and hit some big buckets there in the 4th quarter.

    These are teh games we need to win if we want playoffs. Just take care of business against the teams you should beat and try to steal as many as we can, like against chicago the other night.

    DC and Granger didn't play well in the first half but stepped up in the second half. A solid win against a really bad team (w/o Williams).

    I have to say I enjoyed the Nets' broadcasters. They gave credit to the Pacers more than once, they admitted that Vuijacic's shot was a 2-pointer, and so on. Maybe it's just because their team is bad and out of the playoff picture, but after hearing Boston's and Chicago's crew this season, I think it's fair to mention the good work here.

    Yeah the Nets broadcasters are some of the better ones in the league it seems. I was able to listen to them, against Chicago and Boston the game was put on mute for me.

    After a terrible stretch early in the second, we went to Roy and he really propelled them to the win. Then Granger hit some big buckets in the second half. DC continues to play well overall, just makes some bonehead mistakes still, but thats to be expected from a second year player.

    We battled back and played much better after a terrible start. And the big thing, we won.

    Some stats that caught my eye:

    - This game was a must win, and while we did get it, I think we worked too hard for it. Nets aren't really a top team and their star was out, yet our biggest lead was only 10 points and it came down to free throws in the end. The reason IMO was our 19 turnovers (4 DC, 4 Hibbert, 3 Tyler). This will NOT work against a better team. Memphis for example... Still, good win.
    - DC had a rough first quarter but played a good game overall, with 15 pts 12 ast 6 rbs, including the game winning free throws.
    - Roy really kept us in the ball game, especially on the first 3 quarters. Also played OK on defense. It's nice to see Roy stepping up and playing so well on offense, finishing with 24 points.
    - Josh provided a much needed spark off the bench with 14 points.
    - Danny played awful in the first half with just 3 points and 1-9 shooting. However he did manage to heat up, and finished the second half with 17 points, going 6-8, for a total of 20 points.
    - Brandon Rush hasn't been shooting the ball well lately, going 6-29 from the field over his last 5 games. It's not that his shot selection has been bad, he's just not hitting them. He does show a lot of hustle on defense though.

    Bottom line, I wanna see Roy and DC with less turnovers, Danny with more consistency, and Rush with less shots. Or more made shots if you believe in his offense...

    And yeah, the Nets broadcasters were good. Admitting false calls on their side too. Seem to like Danny and generally the whole team. Were funny too, that neck ball incident- "Whoa! Now that's a game over by rule!" in a serious voice haha

    Shots and turnovers can be counted. Therefore you want FEWER turnovers, not LESS.
    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!

    I like to consider myself a pretty good Graham. Not nearly on the level of Anthem, but still pretty solid, and even I didn't know it should be "fewer" instead of "less"

    Thank you! I see this all the time. People rarely use "fewer" correctly, or at all.

    I prefer the latter. If Rush consistently shot 10 times a game he would most likely average no less than 10 ppg, and probably closer to 14. Yeah his shot has been off lately, but we all know he is normally an excellent shooter.

    Exactly. The kid has gone full seasons shooting 40% from 3, ie just as good as Reggie or Danny.

    He blocks shots on the perimeter and his rebound totals are built on mostly very legit in-traffic grabs where he fights off opponents to get them.

    When people stop waiting for him to be 20 ppg scoring machine they'll start to find out he's fine as a 20mpg 6-7th man type player. He's in a horrible slump lately, but his defense and rebounding have remained solid and he's attempted to have a balanced offense - driving and taking open 3s. He's just not making them.

    Considering the last month or so of Granger's shooting, I think Rush should get a little slack on this.



    Frankly if you put out a lineup next year of Rush, George, Josh/Tyler, Roy you are going to get a lot of defensive stops. Paul and Tyler are making awareness mistakes, but that should end with playing time. George tips enough passes to suggest the potential of Gerald Wallace in terms of steals/disruption.

    A win is a win is a win. And any win is a good win.

    But I'm not gonna do any cartwheels over a win vs a team full of
    what are, sans the overated Lopez, essentially NBA backups.

    Whew 2 game lead on Bucks and Bobcats!

    Win at Charlotte would be HUGE. That would put us up 3 games, technically 4 if you count the tiebreaker, with 10 to play.

    Don't pay attention to the games behind column this time of year. We've played two more games than Milwaukee and Charlotte have, so that throws the games behind column off.

    THE STANDINGS
    Pacers....31-40
    Mil.........28-41
    Char.......28-41

    Effectively, one loss by us and we are all tied in the all important games loss column. So the loss column is where to look, and there we are only one game ahead.

    We better win in Charlotte.

    No reason we should let them have their way.

    I really don't want us to lose and those casual fans think they have the greatest team in the world.

    This is a statement game for Charlotte to realize they won't have what it takes which they don't ever since trading Wallace away.

    Well, DC hit free throws down the stretch, but he made several mistakes, ball gawked, poor defense and decision making.

    I'm still cringing from what seems like really low BBall IQ. I hope he starts to improve, but I'm not real hopeful at this point.

    While I still think there is little question as to his basketball IQ being seriously low, DC did make the smartest play I've seen him make all season tonight when he leaked out off that jump ball for the layup. Granger got credit for the pass during the broadcast, but DC was the one who made it happen.

    He makes an unbelievable amount of careless/boneheaded plays with the ball. He dribbles it off his foot, uncontested, at least what seems like a couple times a game.

    He's one of the most frustrating players to watch ever, but credit where credit is due, that probably was still one of his best games as a Pacer.
