    According to the Orlando Magic, forward Glen Davis has been
    suspended for two games due to conduct detrimental to the team.
    Word is, Stan Van asked him to do the Truffle Shuffle during a
    shootaround, and Davis was a big baby about the whole thing.

    Shaky Ankles:
    Analyzing The Anomalous: Paul George vs. Dallas

    This is what Frank Vogel had to say about Paul George: the number one
    reason he enjoys waking up every morning to coach the Indiana Pacers.
    With George Hill out indefinitely, George’s development process might
    have been placed on the entrails of a jet engine. His outside/inside ability
    is unique, as is his ability to defend multiple positions and seemingly
    thrive in nearly every aspect of the game. Following the peaks of his
    career could be one of the nicer things we have to look forward to as NBA
    fans these next 5-7 years. Something about last night’s game (apart from
    the 30 points with 7 threes) makes it feel like we were witness to the
    baptism of a truly significant basketball player. While people pick holes in
    Indiana’s brilliantly patient roster building strategy and speculate as to
    what high profile superstar they’ll either trade for or sign with all their cap
    space, Paul George...CONTINUE READING SHAKY ANKLES


    Outside Looking In:
    As the Orlando Magic's recent stretch of six losses in eight
    games illustrated, they aren't a terribly good offensive team.
    They scored a franchise-low 56 points in a loss to the Boston
    Celtics, but also had outings of 67 points (against the New
    Orleans Hornets) and 69 points (against the Philadelphia 76ers)
    in that span. Tom Ziller, SB Nation's NBA editor, recently posted
    a story examining what he called offensive volatility, a measure
    of a given player's scoring average relative to his standard
    deviation from his scoring average. Among players averaging
    20-plus points per game this season, Dwight Howard is the
    2nd-most volatile...CONTINUE READING PINSTRIPED POST

    Guys are probably going to be tired. I expect a loss, but hope they bring the D. Our D should help keep us in the game.

    Frankly, to this point I just want them to play great basketball. Like we did last night. Somewhere between coming off of a great road win in Dallas and my refusal of believing that we could go 5-0 this week, I just cannot see us winning this. Then again, this team has proved me wrong (for the better) a lot of times. So, I cannot make a prediction. I'm just pumped

    What? Expect a loss, Magic played last night too and they had to take a 2 hour bus trip into Indy. It's a fair game.

    Great preview by Tim. I wasn't sure about how our starting 5 ranked, but I knew it had to be good, but I was surprised they were that good!

    I also agree about DC running the team very very well. I think he is the weakest link, but it's not very weak.

    Yeah, I wonder how much sleep they got this morning. They probably didn't get into bed until 4 or 5am last night.

    I hope Frank let them all sleep in until 1 or 2pm.

    Orlando has it worse though. They played last night and have to stay in Cincy cause of no hotels.

    I don't think being tired is a good excuse tonight with Orlando's situation

    If that's the case, maybe this will be a very ugly game on both sides. lol

    I'm glad the guys at 8 points 9 seconds have noticed DC controlling the game. A full year under one coach will do that.

    The only time we lost at home this season was against Orlando and if am right, like today,it was on the back of a great road win(Lakers).That's what I'm afraid of.Some guys here said that the mentality is not the right one when it's a home game right after a road trip and especially when we have won the last match.Anyway,here is hoping for another win,extend our streak to 5 games.I hate playing Orlando cause if they find get hot behind the 3pt line,i'm afraid they will kill us again and i also hate Ryan Anderson.There i said it.Go Pacers.

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.
