The bench especially considering that AL did not play was the difference in this game.
If not for for each of the 4 bench players the Pacers lose this game, without question.
It seemed after Tinsley got hit in the face he was awful, 4 turnovers in about 4 minutes. Luckily AJ was able to come in and at least steady the Pacers.
Croshere, when he came in when J.O picked up his 4th foul, I said to no one in particular that we need something from Croshere and he delivered after a poor first half. Two huge threes a couple of big rebounds
Freddie, I have no idea what his stats were, but he was outstnaidng today, his defense was steller, he was running the pick and roll very well and just making plays. I have said for two seasons now I like Freddie and the more I see him the better I like Fred Jones
Last but not least Scot Pollard. He was agggressive and he looked like a player out there, he got a few very tough rebounds and even scored a little. Very happy for Scot, he is an easy guy to cheer for because of his attitude and his approach to things. His physical presense made a difference in this game.
I could mention the starters, but the bench was key today
