Where is Mark Pope when you need him
Where is Mark Pope when you need him
AJ Price was a major reason we won tonight..enough with the hate for tonight.
(That doesn't mean it's gang up on DC night, either.)
Edit: Notice, he shot considerably less when he was on the floor with people who could score..

Buckner missed his calling as a ref
Just give the nets the ball, trust in Pacers Defense.
Where's Brooke? missing another game?
That was an awesome statement from danny its nice to know that they know the pick and roll is killing us
Well, it's better than not winning.
PERFECT interview by Danny... called out their bad pnr defense.. said he knew he needed to play this game and step up, cuz last night was ugly.. just good, truthful stuff.
Good to see Roy and Paul happy as they walk to the locker room together giving each other one of those "finally" hugs/pats on backs as they were going back..

"They want to be famous. We want to be champions. They want to be rappers and backup dancers. We want to play football." - T.J. Ward, Denver Broncos
Coming into the game, he was averaging 3.8 shot attempts and 1.3 assists per-game. This selfish play is made even worse by the fact that he's shooting just .328 from the field. The icing on the crap-flavored cake? His sub-2:1 assist-to-turnover ratio.
Darren Collison isn't anything special, but anyone who thinks A.J. Price is close to being as good is delusional or heavily biased (they know who they are).
Price had a good game by his incredibly low-standards (8 points and 3 assists being a "good" game speaks for itself), but that doesn't change the fact that he's still a horrible basketball player.

He shoots better when he get the rock on a consistent basis as shown by his 49.9% from the field in his 30 starts. In the 40 games he's gotten 5 or less shots Tyler is shooting 33.6%. Tyler has got 10 or more attempts 48 times in his carer and is rocking a 16.1 PPG average in those games.
By the way, it needs pointed out that, while A.J. averages nearly 3x as many shot attempts as assists, Collison's ratio is under 2.
That's the highly reasonable metric I use for judging whether a point guard is pass-first or shoot-first. Darren is pass-first, A.J. is shoot-first... and second (at a .328 clip; yikes...).
33.6% when he gets 5 or less shots speaks for itself, and so does the 49.9% as a starter and 16.1 PPG when he gets 10 shots a game like the other big bench scorers.
He's not a great rebounded or a defender Larry knew than when he took him, but he will draw silly amounts of fouls and **** other teams off while putting up points when given the rock. When he doesn't he's just out there the difference in his production is clear as day if people choose to look at it.
I'm willing to bet the starters would love to see Tyler have the ball to start the 2nd and 4th of every game, as it helps us hit the bonus quicker and helps them get theirs at the stripe when they come in.
Dude is getting 14.6 PPG off the bench in his career with 10 shots of more here is what the Top-12 bench scorers are doing this year min of 20 games.
16.9 for James Harden 10.0 FGA .571
16.1 for Lou Williams 12.8 FGA .420
14.8 for Jason Terry 12.9 FGA .429
14.6 for Al Harrington 11.9 FGA .469
14.2 for Jamal Crawford 12.8 FGA .388
13.6 for Mo Williams 11.5 FGA .455
12.8 for Thaddeus Young 10.7 FGA .519
12.1 for Nicolas Batum 8.6 FGA .449
11.8 for Brandon Bass 10.1 FGA .493
11.7 for O.J. Mayo 10.7 FGA .409
11.7 for Leandro Barbosa 10.6 FGA .417
11.5 for Jordan Crawford 11.6 FGA .366
We have 4 choices we can feed him the rock and let him do his thing, we can bench him, we can trade him or we can keep as is and keep up with the poor games until he gets the ball for a random game and puts up his big point total.
49.9% as starter
33.6% with 5 or less attempts
16.1 with 10 attempts overall
14.6 with 10 attempts off bench
I don't think you need to be John Wooden or Phil Jackson to see what works and what doesn't work here.

If Lance earns himself some time with his play, I'd have no problem with him getting time. He hasn't done that yet. There is no reason to force feed him minutes, at the detriment of the team, just because he's some pet project of Larry Bird.
joey does have a bad temper. that is for sure. but he does keep the game under control. and he is one of the three guys i'd want calling a big game. he give both sides a fair break. and he lets guys play.
as opposed to the officials at the heat game. or the denver game. both were horrible in different ways.
