    Indiana Pacers (6-3)
    The assumption coming into this season was that of the Pacers' two 6-8 swingmen starters, Danny Granger would provide more of an offensive boost and Paul George would be more valuable on defense. But the inverse has been true so far. George has converted 57.1 percent from three-point range while Granger is shooting only 30.7 percent overall. On defense, however, Granger has been the most effective member of the eight-man rotation. The Pacers allow 10.75 fewer points per 100 possessions when he is on the court compared to when he sits, per Basketball Value.

    Thats surprising about Granger.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I think Grangers shot will start to fall. The question is : Does he revert back to less of a defensive presence?
    Sittin on top of the world!

    No Way man. His shots haven't been falling and he has been shooting at a good volume. Plus he has way more help. This team is better with Granger than without him. Adds a another more viable weapon.

    I actually am not too surprised. DG's defense has been great this season (Minus the Heat game of course)

    Ok. Paul George was defending LeBron.

    Of all the people that thought DG did a poor job the Heat game, do we need to have you guys rewatch with DG highlighted defending everyone who is not LeBron James??

    Huge fan of Danny's defense so far, but that was goal-tending, even though the refs didn't call it.
