We are 5-0 on the season when Lou Amundson grabs 6 or more rebounds. 8-1 when George Hill has at least 3 assists. 8-0 when Hill has at least 2 steals. 8-3 when Foster has played, 19-9 when Hill has played, and 8-1 when Tyler grabs 7+ rebounds.
Danny played well, but 41% shooting isn't exactly efficient imo.
25 points on 17 shots isn't incredible, but not bad. Change a couple of those no-calls to foul shots and the percentages look just fine.
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.
All I know is we need Hibbert to go back to the aggressive, man eating Center he was at the begining of the year. Where did that go Roy? We are fortunate to win when he doesn't play well, even though he had solid stats I would say last night is one of those games he didn't play as good as he needs to be for us to win on a regular basis. But Tyler, Hill, Barbosa and Lou turned out to be big time coming off the bench. Lou being put in there because of his hard nosed defense and rebounding he brought.
If LA learned anything last night, it should have been don't tick off Indiana. Got into it a couple times, then we floored them.. Then played nice afterwards so it didn't look so bad in the end, but we had our way with them.
I think it gets overlooked sometimes because this Pacers team has so many players that can lead us in scoring from to game but Danny Granger usually has the biggest impact on whether or not the Pacers win.
If Danny is playing well (I don't just mean scoring), the Pacers are a much better team. When he's hitting his shots and moving without the ball it takes a lot of pressure off of Hibbert and West in the post. It also puts pressure on the opponent's defense because he commands so much attention.
I think the most important indicator for success for us is assists. I don't know what our record is when we get 19+ assists but I'd be willing to bet we've only lost a game or two. I'd also be willing to bet we are about .500 when our assists are between 15 and 19, and I'd bet we are well under .500 when we get less than 15 assists.
The stats are going to be a little off compared to in years past because normally Granger was our #1 and practically only true scoring option.. But now he's one of many, we don't go to him like we used to... Looking at the numbers I was still suprised at how low his points are sometimes. I think you have to put into play that sometimes other guys are just feeling it and they get the ball as well as Granger hasn't done well against Miami this year, and I think that's because of his strong concentration to defense.
