    I can't until we play these Timberpups again this year with a healthy Foster. He thought that Tyler and Danny were playing rough, wait until Foster clears him out for a rebound. The guy is an over-hyped rebounder that can shoot the three occasionally. Kind of sounds like Murph. If he is *****ing about Danny getting in his face, maybe he should have worried about Danny torching their asses the rest of the way on their home court.
    He'll flop around like a hooked carp. Like last night on steroids.

    Another quality road victory! Even overcame the crybaby Love foul! Gotta respect Coach Vogel in getting Danny outta the situation before ejections and fines were issued. Pacers are for real, and Physical....Mans Game B!*%h! Go Pacers!

    Much bigger win than most probably realize imo
    Frank Vogel has even made Croz24 positive.

    Coach of the year for sure.

    Danny Granger's last 5 games are at a crazy efficient level.

    He's scoring 25 PPG on 17 shots.

    Shooting 47.7% from the field. 42.9% from 3 and 85.7% from the free throw line.

    He's averaging 6 RPG, 2.2 APG, and 1.8 SPG as well.

    It's hard to see him having much energy left by the time Orlando comes around. I'd like to see Paul and Dahntay come out with really good games in Dallas so we could get Danny some rest.

    No doubt. Hard to believe they got him in the 2nd round.
    Not that it matters a lot in the NBA but he used to be one of the best(if not the best) Centers in Europe before coming to the NBA.He also won a Euroleague title and his role was pivotal in that.I would love to have him as a back up.

    It's really unfortunate for the fans of the T-Wolves that Love embarrassed them with his quotes. I was reading a Wolves forum and they really are one of the better fan bases in the NBA. Their opinions of Love's comments are on par with how we feel about them. Quit crying and start playing. Reading their comments was really a breath of fresh air compared to the Bulls fans... God I hate Bulls fans.

    Anyhow, a couple of comments I read from their fans was pretty interesting. They thought we were the best screen setting team they have seen this year. I had never really thought about it until now, but I believe this is true. While I see plenty of illegal screens from our side, I also see some pretty dang good screens being set out there. Some players in the NBA NEVER get set on a screen, but I think our players do a pretty good job. This is one aspect I am going to pay attention to moving forward.

    Loved the game last night. Our guys went cold early on and let Minny hang around too long. But, as usual, they picked it up and put away a lesser team.

    Don't know what Love was crying about. Ya got beat, big guy. Take it like a man or run to mommy and don't come to our house where it's just gonna be worse. "They take those pills," really? If you're gonna try to talk smack, at least make sense. And, oh yeah, don't do it after you lose by 10 at home.

    More importantly, Danny was tremendous, even with his 2-7 stretch early on.
    I was disappointed PG24 got the 4 fouls because he was looking very comfortable and confident on offense.
    Hibbert & West were both good offensively, but their defense was incredible and really led the way for the Pacers smashmouth approach.
    DC had a great game. I've been a big fan of his from the start, and I honestly think games like this could become the norm for him in the next year or two.
    Tyler...well, he was still aggressive, lol.

    Definitely happy we were able to get both wins in this back-to-back. This game against Dallas could be a let down, but I have too much confidence in this team to ever expect a loss this year. If we can beat Dallas, then go home to face Orlando Saturday and win that one, we're going to start getting more attention. Especially with the Super Bowl in Indy, people are already there and talking about the town.

    GO PACERS!

    The dude averages 25 and 15... He is a star, he's not top 5 or anything, but he's definitely a "star" player. With that said, he is being a cry baby here!
    he has star numbers but he is not a star. as someone said a bit ago, his stats are empty. he is not a dominant presence at all. he doesnt make his team good.

    30pts 30 rebounds are empty stats?

    I understand have bias, but sometimes just give credit where credit is due.

    In this game.... Tyler made his first ever left handed shot. Now he just needs to use that turn around jumper when he drives into the lane.

    Agreed. Wolves fans are legitimately good fans. The Wolves belonged to the "why they still exist" category for a long time now and yet they're still rooting for them. Fans that don't support teams that are favourites tend to be nice fans in general. I have nothing but respect for their fans and team, personally.

    im not sure how you could watch the game last night and say he has empty stats. He completely controlled the glass, albeit through some "questionable" tactics. He gave Minny a lot of second chances.

    Exactly. This isn't Troy Murphy grabbing a one bounce rebound before the point guard is about to grab it, just to pass it to the point guard anyway. Just so he can get his rebound, all while killing any chance at a potential fast break to do so.

    I understand he was whining, but lets be real about what he does on the court please.

    I guess Ricky Rubio must be solely carrying the T-Wolves on his back. The T-Wolves were a game under .500 going into last night's game. You know the Rubio who did little compared to what contributions Love had in the game. Love was a major reason that Granger played so many minutes in the game last night. Love is a star whether you want to admit it or not.

    I had no clue Danny had near thirty points in a HALF until it was mentioned by Quinn.

    Man, it's startling how easily and quietly Danny scores when he's really got it going. I think Paul George is well on his way in that manner, too.

    two games under .500 means youre a star? compare him to a true star like Dwight Howard...

    I think that Tyler will be fine. He's in a huge slump, and he looks lost as hell out there. But once he gets his confidence back and realizes how good he really is once again, he will be the same Tyler that we know and love.

    Honestly, I think it was a mistake by the coaching staff to try to get him to play a more team oriented game... I think he was oblivious to the fact that he was trigger happy, and now that is in the back of his mind all of the time as he tries to make passes and isn't as aggressive in the post.
    Before the fix the offense practice that Frank had to start the West Coast trip Tyler was in double figures 9 of 12 games averaging 11.67 PPG with two other 8 point games mixed in. Since that Practice Tyler has reached double figures twice both just 10 point games and has seen 8 one other time in the 9 games avenging just 6.3 PPG. He's went from missing wide open shots in rhythm to to looking pass first any becoming hesitant but his assists did go from .33 per-practice to .78 post practice with many missed shots on his passes since.

    Generally, I agree that this was not the case.

    However, he DID jumped at Darko to get a board that was going into Darko's hands and almost elbowed his teammate in the head.

    He is a great rebounder but this moment kinda sickened me.

    Just b/c a player plays on a losing team doesn't mean he can't be a star or isn't a star. KG comes to mind. If you don't like Love that's fine, but don't degrade and belittle his ability and accomplishments just b/c you don't like him as a player. IIRC, he was an Allstar last year, and w/o a doubt in my mind it won't be the last one either.

    And the team went from scoring 93 points per game to 96 points per game.

    This alleged destruction of Tyler's game offensively has improved the Pacers on that end of the floor. He's clearly in a funk but there is just a 2.7% difference in his shooting percentage before and after the west coast trip.

    He's taking fewer and, generally, better shots. That's a good thing. Surely, they'll start falling at a better rate this way than how he was shooting earlier in the season.

    I think the very idea that one practice could greatly change anything about the offense is ludicrous but if that is the theory we're sticking to, our offense has clearly improved since then.

    Those moments happen if you're looking up and you're not always aware of whether the player next to you is your teammate or not. With Troy they would be balls that bounced and he can clearly see who's going for it.
