    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview:
    A Few with Donahue

    Tim didn't make a new Twitter-lengthed video again today for one of two reasons.
    It's either because A) he doesn't think the Warriors game is all that important or
    B) he's extremely disappointed in you...every last one of you.

    I'm going with B.

    But Tim DID put together a mid-season report. Read that below.
    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview Review:
    Tim Donahue: By the Numbers

    Who’s up for another installment of the By The Numbers series? The All Star
    break is always a good time to take the team’s temperature, and in an odd
    confluence of events, the break actually coincides with the precise midpoint
    of the Pacers’ season. Indy has played 33 of their scheduled games, so let’s
    look at the big numbers.

    21-12

    You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who would be disappointed in a 21-12
    record for the Pacers at this point, if looked at in the macro sense. There’s a
    temptation to look at their 16-6 start, then see the 5-6 record over the last
    11 games, and feel a little uncomfortable. However, it’s tough to tell how
    valid this is. Teams aren’t machines, and seasons are made up of peaks and
    valleys.

    That’s not to say that there weren’t certain flaws in the Pacers’ structure
    that got exposed recently, but the team remains in a good place. This record
    is currently good enough for third best in the Eastern Conference, and sixth
    best league-wide.

    10th, 13th

    The area worthy of most concern long term is the decline in the Pacers’
    defense. They have dropped from Top 5 to hovering around 10th in Defensive
    Efficiency. Over their 5-game losing streak, Indiana allowed almost 113pts per
    100 possessions. While there were signs of improvement over the 4-game
    winning streak heading into the break, it is still not back to where it should be.
    Slow defensive starts in three of the four games put the Pacers in the trail
    position after one quarter, and Indy allowed 122/100 in a win over New
    Orleans, before allowing 108/100 to Charlotte – the worst offensive team
    in the league – in the final game before All Star weekend.

    The bellwether metric for the Pacer defense is Field Goal (and eFG) Defense.
    Indy’s actual FG% allowed has increased from .417 to .429, dropping them
    from the best in the league. During that time, the Pacers overall defense
    has dropped from 5th to 10th.

    Offensively, the Pacers have finally peaked above average at 103.8 in
    offensive efficiency. They still don’t shoot well (.464 eFG%, 24th), but they
    are above average-to-good at the other three four factors. The offense is
    coming along, but they need to get that defense back on track.

    19-14

    That’s the number of wins I had projected at the mid-point as part of
    ESPN’s pre-season predictions. The full season number was 37, but I
    think that probably should be adjusted upwards. Finishing on my
    projection of 18-15 for the second half puts them at 39 wins, but 40+
    needs to be the goal...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s


    Outside Looking In:
    The Last time these two teams met on January 20th, the Pacers were
    victorious at Oracle Arena because they manufactured easier shot
    attempts than their opponents. Indeed, on that night, Indiana scored
    42 points in the paint, generated 17 fast break points and went to the
    free throw line 21 times.

    The Warriors hurt themselves in the contest by failing to account for
    Indy’s three best scorers. Indeed, the trio of David West, Danny
    Granger and Roy Hibbert scored a combined 54 points on 22-for-37
    field goal shooting (59.5 percent). West and Hibbert’s performances are
    somewhat forgivable given that the Dubs do not have any big men with
    enough size and defensive prowess to truly limit them.

    However, Danny Granger’s output in January against the Warriors
    had to be disappointing for the coaching staff. On the season, the
    Pacers’ starting small forward is averaging 18 points per game on
    38.2 percent field goal shooting; and yet he managed to put up 26
    points on 10-for-16 shooting from the field despite being matched up
    against the likes...CONTINUE READING AT WARRIORSWORLD.NET

    The question the nation is wondering: Will Brandon Rush be booed?

    The #44 pick of the 2011 draft. 6'3", 220 lb PG/SG out of Hofstra. 23 years old. He has started 8 games this year for the Warriors.

    He is starting because:

    1) Curry is injured.

    2) The Warriors like Nate Robinson coming off the bench.

    3) The Warriors like Ellis to play SG and not PG.

    Even if Monta lights it up, he won't be worth trading for Danny straight up!
