Collison 25 points,4 rebs,5 assists on 14 shots. And most important – 0 turnovers, and yet again I see people questioning this guy to be a starter even, ridiculous.
Could have easily collapsed big time, but Danny stepped up big and hit some shots. Can't forget about Darren Collision having a great game.
And the walls came tumbling down.....
I like Granger's play this season. He is not shooting well, but he is hustling for everything.
EDIT: His defense the last quarter was awesome.
Lots of mental mistakes this game, the entire game, and still pulled out a win. Great game from DC, and nice to see Granger and George hit big shots.
Darren won this game for the Pacers. No, he's no Jason Kidd, Steve Nash or even Mark Jackson type of PG who makes other players around him better...but dude can score and handle the ball well. He's a lot better option than we've had at the PG position since Jamaal Tinsley.
Team is 17-7, DC outplayed Devin Harris, Indiana won a game and the biggest news is that DC missed PG on a fast break or couldnt kick it to Hibbert at some point? Seriously?
8 To's for the Pacers.That's nice.
It would be/look really bad if we lost that game mainly because you just can't surrender such a big lead in the 3rd quarter and even trail in the 4th.Danny was great in the 4th,Colllison had a great 1st half and Hibber was also very good.Anyway,good win and hoping for a win tomorrow against the Hawks.
Got to love a team that just finds ways to win.
I think losing focus with big leads is a bit of a youth thing and I think they will do it less as the season wears on. Good teams can do that at times, then crank up the defense and still win. That's what we did tonight and it's soooo good to be that team when so often in recent years we've been on the other side of that equation.

Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."
A lot of teams go on runs like the Jazz, we should just be happy that this team, unlike previous teams, was able to regain composure and gut out the win

Funny we expect a blow-out over a western conference team with a .565 winning percentage.
How times have change...
The 4th quarter wasn't pretty by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm glad we toughed it out. Those tough pills must be extended release?

Didn't get to watch the game, due to NBATV stupidity.
Glad to see the W, though.
Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.
- Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
- Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
- Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.
Enjoy your time at PD!
What Lebron James should've said after the loss to the Mavs!
What should I do? Should I admit I’d made mistakes? Should I remind you I’ve done this before? What should I do? Should I just sell shoes?
By the way I can't wait for Hill to come back and let AJ get back to the bench and never see him again.
I will say it was nice seeing Lance look for his shot again. He has been in the pass pass pass mode lately. He must have gotten a glimpse of a green light.
