    That's true. Lately, we've started looking good again. BUT Charlotte failing to score in its 21 out of 22 offensive possessions to start the game played an important role this game. And it was not about us playing amazing defense to start the game. We played good defense but they missed wide open jumpers and Maggette chucked up a lot of shots early in the shot clock with a hand on him (you can argue that we had a hand on him so it was a good defense but it also was horrible shot selection on Maggette's part).

    There's not a reason to not feel good about this win, though. Especially, since we're so close in 3rd seed now

    Dude, you're really bitter after a big win. You need a hug?
    Nah. I'm the same after a win or loss. Consistency!

    I just know if we were losing, and Lebron and Wade were doing the YMCA dance on the sidelines when they were beating us the other day this place would have 50 topics about it. The admins would have their work cut out for them condensing them all. Over the years I've been repeatedly told that nobody is a hypocrite here and if Pacers players ever did this or that, that those people would feel the same. Yet every time something like that happens, everyone makes excuses for why it's suddenly okay.

    It just so happens tonight one of those things happened, and not a peep.

    And personally, I thought our improved play on both ends (the starters, mostly) was obvious. This wasn't just about playing Charlotte. Not even close. Since the second half of the Cavs game, our play has steadily improved overall. I can't wait for the post break stretch with Hill back.
    This is a great point. The passing by the starters was phenomenal.
    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!

    Wow, what a refreshing win!

    I don't care WHO we played. Seeing our entire team so locked in and firing on all cylinders was really fun to watch.

    The mini-run our bench gave up late in the first/early second was a bit frustrating, but frankly they atoned nicely by giving really solid efforts late in the game.

    A win is a win. Don't care if we win by 1 or 35, just good to get a W on the board.

    With that being said, I would not mind one bit seeing more 20+ margin victories against these basement-dweller teams.

    Strong start to our All-Star stretch! Let's give N.O. the same on Tuesday!

    I didn't have a problem with LeBron doing it and I don't have one now. Like you said: consistency.

    I also thought Lance did a decent job with the first unit. Tell me why you disagree.

    What a fine display of an all-out arse whooping. DW and RH looked really good on the defensive side and was much better tonight. There was a sense of urgency that we had lacked for a while.

    To be honest, I didn't even see the YMCA dance. The Bobcats feed did not show it nor did they say anything about it.

    Agreed. I had no issue with what Lebron does most of the time, because plenty of people do it. Just some people think he's the only one. Like when someone made a stink about him holding up 3 fingers as Battier shot a 3, because he was 'making it about himself'.

    Anyway, Lance played one of his better games. That's the mitigating factor for me. When this is one of your better games, well ... you're not exactly producing much. I'm just afraid those silly decisions (the awful pass to Granger for a turnover, and multiple charging calls on fast breaks) are going to be the norm. They're all mental errors. That's the overriding theme I have when I watch him play, is mental errors. I have much more of a tolerance for physical errors (Paul George dribbling issue) than I do for mental errors. They're easier to correct. I just have no faith that Lance will ever correct those things. So my comment was more of a general one than specific to tonight.

    Can't help but be thrilled about the win tonight, but I'm trying not to get too excited because it was the Bobcats. Still though, how can you not love the awesome group effort that this team displayed tonight?

    Typed up an Odd Thoughts and was looking up a photo when my computer shut off and did not have a chance to save it.

    I am not typing all of that up again

    Needless to say tonight was chicken soup with a side order of pinicillin. Bobcats are terrible.

    I don't have time to do this agai as I have a meeting in the morning, sigh. Normally I either save it or can pull it up, but words did not keep it for me this time. sigh....

    Certainly one of them I looked at my TV funny, with a look displaying my "really?" face. That said, it still wasn't a good decision. I believe he was going 1 on 3 a couple of times in there on fast breaks, one for a charge and one for a missed shot. They're just bad decisions. It's hard to change that when they're your instinct.

    Im amazed though at how fast Lance can get down the court with the ball.

    Just watching the highlights on NBA TV. I'm curious why they mentioned Roy not getting called for traveling on that monster jam. He only took one step, isn't the rule two? Or must the ball be dribbled before you get the two steps?

    It was a great win loved being there to see it. I'm going to go ahead and say it.

    I can't not wait until Hansbrough is traded from this team. He didn't do anything positive with in the flow of the offense, and he didn't really contribute until the game had been decided. I can not stand to watch him get the ball on the base line and just hold it for 5-6 secs. Lou contributes more in his limited minutes than Hansbrough does the whole game.

    There was a period there at the end of the 1st and beginning of the 2nd where all 5 subs were in the game, and I though for sure the Bobcats were going to get back in to the game. Thankfully Vogel put a couple starters back in.

    Oh yeah, something I forgot to mention. We still need to fix our transition game. Both offense and defense. Even the Bobcats were better at it.

    And that's about the only negative that this game had

    I agree I can't wait until he's gone too but I do wonder, what will you cry about then?

    I actually thought Lance was pretty bad this game, despite doing some positives. The overall feel was out of control and stupid. And previously, I thought he'd been a bit better. (He'd come in the game, put in a good effort on defense, not try to do too much..)

    I hate saying this, but I have to.

    Hansbrough has to go. I like him a lot, so its not easy to say, but he is REALLY hurting our team.

    So I'm watching waiting for this major celebration and all I got was Hibbert and PG doing a halfhearted looking YMCA on the sidelines during a timeout?

    Putting aside whether or not there was anything wrong with what LeBron did or anything wrong with what Hibbert and PG did tonight, if you can't see that there is a difference between what they did during a timeout and extended dancing along the sidelines while the game is in progress, I don't know what to tell you. It is not the same. Just be glad this isn't a compare and contrast test.

    Now yes, I'm one of those people who was annoyed (not incensed like some were, but peeved) by LeBron dancing on the sideline during the game. And I'd be annoyed if one of our guys did something like that while the game was in progress. There's the consistency you're looking for, xBulletproof.

    To the game - just finished it. Other than the increased defensive intensity, the thing that sticks in my mind is how many sweet passes David West made into the post. Hope to see more of that in the future.
