    Can the Pacers turn Roy Hibbert marquee player and centerpiece? What are the chances of an early contract extension?

    Chad Ford (1:14 PM)


    He's really having a great season and his grittiness in that Laker game (playing with a broken nose and without a mask in the second half) said something to the Pacers. With that said, it sounds like the two sides aren't close ... though things can change quickly when you get to the deadline. The Pacers might be the one team that would be incentivized to sign Hibbert now. There are very few centers on the open market. If he plays like this all year, someone may go crazy and offer him a huge deal. That would be insanity for Hibbert, but you saw what Gasol and DeAndre Jordan got this summer. The Pacers would be able to match ... but given their budget ... would they?

    Jeez, was he that nasty towards Pacer players? If so, I understand why Roy brings it up after every once in a while..

    Do I need to have a certain number of posts to submit a new thread? It keeps timing out whenever I try.

    Well, hopefully all of the Owners will be as nice as the Simon's when it comes to respecting other Team Owners and their RFAs and not going after them.

    Excellent block by Amir and Kleiza hits both FTs to give Toronto the 3 point lead 10.7 before the end.

    Edit: And Millsap hit a huge 3 with a hand in his face to tie the game and send it to 2OT.

    Edit 2: 3 secs remaining though.

    Edit: Double overtime indeed.

    Anyone see the Sportscenter highlights of the Mavs game? Dirk was giving some play by play...funny stuff.

    It's almost like Pau Gasol is being ignored. Kobe is making it his personal mission to force the ball to Bynum.

    There's some type of kink in the board software where thread titles, either of a certain length or containing a specific sequence of text, wont go through properly.

    The workaround is to simply submit the thread with a short, one-character title, and then change the title via editing the post.

    Does anyone else think the lighting is much better when the Clips are the home team at Staples' than when the Lakers are?

    Hard to go into to Staples Center and get any calls when they have the gold and purple floor down.

    Having been to many Clippers and Lakers games, I can say for sure the lighting is different. They turn off the upper lights for Lakers games. Madison Square Garden does the same thing.

    http://www.82games.com/1112/11IND7.HTM#onoff

    So, none of our top 20 5 man units don't include Granger. He holds his man to 31.1% eFG%. He averages 61.5 points per 48 minutes of clutch time. We allow 15 points less per 100 possessions and score 6 more points per 100 possessions when he's on the floor.

    I'd normally discount single stats as being who he plays with but pretty much every category is better when he's on the floor.

    EDIT: Oops, those are his top 20 5 man units, not the teams. Same point though. He is in 4 of the top 5. Here's the whole team. http://www.82games.com/1112/1112IND2.HTM
    Not bad for a guy in a slump.

    He didn't really say that, did he? I have the game on tape, I can go back and rewatch.
    I hope not, that's disgusting. I've disliked Roy's continual slights on JOB more than anyone but if he really said something like that about a random play imagine what he said to his own guys.

    A real shame for him and the Raps.

    On other news, Knicks lost by the Cavs. Surprise, surprise.

    Random eye-popping stat: Austin Daye put up 28 points on 18 shots. Against the Heat, in a close loss. Isn't he the guy Piston fans wanted to get rid off? Are the Pistons even planning to pick up his 4th year option?

    He's a perimeter shooting specialist with confidence as fragile as a china doll. I don't care if we pick him up or not.
