    This kind of dedication and love for the game is what is going to get us over the hump to where we can beat good teams and win large number of games year after year after year.

    Some teams, like Orlando or Atlanta, don't have the guts, strength, or motivation to ever be a good playoff team. A genuine and legit complaint or worry with any team. We do not have that. At all. We have very young guys who put in the work and will get on the floor for a loose ball and will show up to crucial games.

    Awesome. I'm really hoping Paul can tear it up in game 3 like he did against the Wiz. I guess this is what Larry Bird was talking about, after you play in the playoffs for the first time, you tell yourself you HAVE to get better lol!

    I can't believe he had the energy to hit the gym after guarding Rose all night. I was exhausted just sitting on my couch watching.

    I hope it pays off soon.

    That's the thing that still stands out the most about Paul from around the time of the draft. Someone asked him who his favorite player was and he said Kobe. When asked why, it wasn't because he's the best shooter/player or some reason like that. He said it was because Kobe worked the hardest. The only reason someone with Paul's potential wouldn't turn into a superstar is because they don't have their head right. He does. I don't care how raw his offense is right now. I'm just trying to enjoy this. Because if he does meet his full potential, it's going to be a very, very fun ride.

    I like PG34's work ethic and dedication to the game. He, like Hansborough, are very coachable and want to be here, improve and help this team win.

    I hope he's able to find his offense for Games 3 and 4. We're gonna need him to be effective on both sides of the ball. We're getting very little offensive productivity from our 2-Guards.

    Paul George is quickly becoming one of the best defenders in the Eastern Conference, and maybe the NBA, and his 3 ball for a 20 year old looks stellar. He can get his shot off because he is so long and athletic. Keep it up Paul. Don't stop, keep goin. Whenever your offensive game finally clicks, you will be the most dangerous SG this league has seen since Jordan if you live up to your full potential. Believe that.

    Never a doubt in my mind Paul George was the number 1 pick every cried for us to tank to get. Sure John Wall is going to be great, but so is Paul George. I feel like we were rewarded for not tanking. If we tanked last year we would have never got Paul George, and there isn't a player in that draft I'd take over him at this point.

    This is hands down the best rookie playoff performance I have ever seen as a fan and maybe the old timers can correct me. Paul George is like a bigger, longer, and stronger Reggie Miller clone with great athleticism and defense.

    This thread is obviously observing the best case scenario but there is no reason to believe he won't do it with an attitude like that. Anything is possible if you believe it and make it happen.

    He is going to win game 3 for us. The playoffs are his time. He has stepped up and he will not be backing down.

    Forget hitting the gym... (granted his J was off due to tired legs from playing A+ D, so maybe he can use the extra conditioning).

    More importantly, he needs to hit the film room. His decision making is what killed him. There's no reason he shouldn't drop 20 on Korver.

    Nonetheless, I'm proud of him for putting in work. Expect big things from him in game 3.

    Wasn't HIS decision making....Vogel said they run very few offensive plays/sets for George. I expect that to change dramatically over time.

    They hardly ever run a play for him. Everything he gets his from fastbreak or breaking the offense or a jump shot.

    George relishes challenge of guarding Rose

    April 20, 2011

    Given Derrick Rose's 36 points in Game 2, following 39 in Game 1, you might develop the impression the Pacers are concerned about the player assigned to defend the Chicago point guard.
    You would, of course, be wrong.

    "I give him an A-plus," Frank Vogel said of Paul George's work.

    Assigning a rookie wing player to defend any point guard is a bold move. Assigning a rookie wing player to defend this point guard, the hottest player in the game, the likely league MVP, is something else entirely.

    Then again, so is George.

    When the Pacers returned home from Chicago after a 96-90 loss in Game 2 Monday night, George did not head home for some much-needed rest. Instead, at 4 a.m., he and a friend drove straight to Conseco Fieldhouse for a couple of hours of extra work.

    George said he put up around 1,000 shots and ran through some plays that had given him problems.

    "I was more motivated than anything so me and my (friend) came in, got some shots up, he rebounded for me, got a lot of free throws," George said. "I just went through the scenarios that I turned the ball over late in the game. The play that coach Frank kept calling for me where I was isolated at the top, I kept going through that series just so that doesn't happen again."

    George had four blocked shots and three steals in Game 2. Vogel said he set a team record with 18 deflections.

    "I thought he was spectacular on (Rose)," said Vogel. "A couple of breakdowns but a couple of breakdowns over the course of a long game, I thought he did a great job. He was great with his hands, great with his angles. I was just very proud of him."

    George has done extensive film study on Rose to try to pick up some tendencies. With each game, he learns a little more, develops a more detailed plan of attack. Shutting down Rose is out of the question. Making his life difficult is the first step.

    "He had me tired, legs cramping, back sore," George said. "I tried to give him my all, really tried to force him to take some tough shots and make him try to make some tough passes, and really tried to get the ball out of his hands. But he's a great scorer, a great player and he ultimately made the best plays."

    Since moving into the starting lineup on March 9, George's emphasis has shifted from offense to defense. With the second unit he was more of a go-to guy. With the first unit, he's trying be the stopper.

    His commitment to that role has made a big impression on Vogel.

    "You see talented guys come into this league every single year and some of them blossom and some of them don't," he said. "It's about what you're made up of inside. And that kid is made up of hunger and the ability to learn, the ability to listen, the desire to be great.

    "Aside from his physical talents, all those things give us a great deal of hope and belief that kid's going to be special."

    George is not expected to stop Rose. He is not expected to contain him one-on-one. All five Indiana defenders have a role to play. George is the man on point, so to speak.

    However this series turns out, the Pacers have learned quite a bit about their prized rookie, the No. 10 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. George is one of those rare players who not only has the talent but the desire, the will, the work ethic, to become special.

    It's a long journey from here to there but that early-morning trip to the gym shows George knows the way.
    This guy is unbelievable. Hard to believe he is a rookie.

    I'd rather PG focus on his defense. He plays D like he did last night, and we'll win some games without his offense.

    Man, how can you not love this guy.

    He put on one of the best defensive performances I have seen this year and still wasn't satisfied.

    I just have this feeling that he is going to play even better in game 3 than he did in game 2.

    The Bulls aren't going to get as many calls on the road, and I think this is going to allow Paul to be even more aggressive.

    Work ethic like this is what the Pacers have been missing. Glad to see a rookie stepping up like this. I'm looking forward to his transformation into the next Tracy McGrady.

    This is what L.Bird meant when he was saying these kids will learn more in the next 2 wks then they did all year. This is the spirit I have seen from Roy at times, & wish I saw more in others. Love to know if any teammates joined him. If not, too bad.

    I hope!

    T-Mac was awesome defensively as well when he came into the league.

    Both have great length.

    T-Mac's defense started to decline ever since he became an offensive force and started taking defensive plays off.

    I'm not too sold on George's offensive game so far though.

    His handles seem really iffy and his jump shot is inconsistent.

    We'll see though, just work hard George, you have all the tools to be great!
