I don't post new threads very often, but I am surprised this question hasn't already been asked. The team is 3-5 in the 8 games that George Hill has missed this season. It'd be easy to think that we could easily replace a 10 ppg bench scorer, but I believe it goes well beyond that.
Aside from being probably our most consistent outside shooting threat, Hill is one of our best on ball defenders as well. We have really missed his defensive presence on the perimeter during this 3-game losing streak (Hinrich, Conley, Lawson all caused our team problems)
We are giving up 90.5 ppg in the games he played, and 96.75 ppg in the games he's missed. I know it's a small sample size, but I think it's enough of a difference to take note of.
So the question is simple, how much are the pacers missing George Hill?
