    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!

    Great kid.

    Watch out NBA, we might have found out star weapon.

    He's gotta be exhausted though.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 someone at least rebounded for him.

    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!

    This is what makes Paul George different from guys like Shawne Williams, James White, etc.

    Poor Paul George.

    I just watched the Game 2 post game interview and he's really taking the loss hard. You can hear it in his voice and see it on his face. He even said as much in his first comment, that his mistakes cost them the game down the stretch.

    I think Vogel needs to keep starting him, but I'd go with Granger, Hans and Dahntey in crunch time at the 2, 4 and 3, respectively. If defense wins ball games and you need somebody at either to 2 or 3 who can handle the ball, play solid defense, create his own shot and draw fouls, this trio will get the job done. I'm 100% confident of that.

    Again, I'm only suggesting doing this during those last 3 minutes. Otherwise, George starts and gets the primary defensive assignment on Rose.

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