    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview Review:
    Tim Donahue: Pacers Get the Job Done in Philly

    In a 66-game season, it’s easy to miss the normal mile markers for success.
    For example, the Pacers picked up their 40th win tonight. While that’s a
    pedestrian number in an 82-game season, it actually prorates to just shy of
    the equivalent of 50 wins in a 66-game season.

    Also by beating Philadelphia in Philly, the Pacers finished the season with a
    19-14 record on the road – the equivalent of between 23 & 24 wins in a full
    season. In their 35-year NBA history, Indiana has only won a higher
    percentage of games away from home three times: 2004, 1998, and 1999.

    The win puts Indy 3-1/2 games ahead of Boston, Atlanta, and Orlando for
    the third seed in the East. Those three teams each have 25 losses, so the
    Pacers’ magic number for locking up the third seed is two. Win two of their
    remaining four home games, and that’s it.

    Danny Granger delivered 24 points while hitting six of his eight three-point
    attempts. In the 29 games since the All Star break, Granger has averaged
    19.9 points and 5.2 rebounds while shooting an eFG% of .532.

    In April, Granger has upped that to 23.5 points and 5.3 rebounds on .577
    eFG%. The Pacers have gone 10-1 during the month.

    At this point, it must be said that – as far as the regular season goes –
    Frank Vogel and his Pacers have met the highest possible reasonable
    expectations in terms of accomplishments. They have a job of work ahead
    of them in the playoffs, but they have done a job of work to get to this
    point. That should not be dismissed.

    Plus, they overcame the yellow jerseys...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s


    Bucksketball
    The backup center turned starting center who really isn’t a center

    Andrew Bogut played in 65 games last season, but in the other 17 Milwaukee
    cobbled together starting lineups that included Jon Brockman, Larry Sanders
    or Drew Gooden in the center position.

    Since Bogut’s injury and then eventual trade, Gooden’s assumed the majority
    of the center minutes this season. When he’s been out, Milwaukee’s been
    forced into some tougher positions again, using Sanders, Ekpe Udoh and even
    at times Ersan Ilyasova at the five.

    So yeah, the Milwaukee Bucks lack size inside.

    Flirtations over the past two seasons with Erick Dampier, Joel Przybilla and
    Kyrylo Fesenko haven’t result in the backup, and probably now starting,
    center Milwaukee’s seemed to need. But speaking with reporters before a
    recent game, Scott Skiles made it sound like the Bucks got all the backup
    big they wanted when Gooden was signed.

    “One of the primary reasons of signing Drew was to be the backup five to
    Bouges,” Skiles said. “Not that he wouldn’t also start at the four, we didn’t
    rule that out or anything. We thought because he’s done it before, that in a
    pinch, he could swing to the backup five and pick and pop and shoot the ball
    like he has and things like that.

    “This year it’s just worked out that that has been his primary role. That’s
    just what’s happened. Drew is a four/five, he’s not a five/four. But for us
    right now he’s a five. Strictly a five.”

    Gooden hasn’t rebounded as well this year as he has previously in his career
    – the 6.4 rebounds per game he’s averaging would be his lowest season total
    of his career – possibly because he’s dealing with a different kind of player
    defensively.

    To his credit, Gooden has responded with one of his more productive seasons
    offensively. At times he’s been consistent with a mid-range jumper shot that’s
    helped open things up offensive for the Bucks. His assist rate of 16.3% his
    more than twice his career rate of 7.6%. Plus, he’s admirably fought for
    position and ground defensively with the league’s largest players all
    season.

    “He causes problems on the other end of the floor for the other team’s center,
    so there’s a bit of a trade off there,” Skiles said. “We’ve asked him to do some
    things this year that are, on paper, unfair. Getting out there and battling with
    Dwight Howard and then still getting out there on guards and trying to trap on
    pick and rolls. We feel in total he’s been very, very positive.”

    I hope Jennings tries to play angry, he seems like the kind of guy who would just put up bad shot after bad shot in an effort to make a point.

    For those counting at home, Roy Hibbert has fallen to the floor only 9 times in the past three games. Progress?

    I don't know about you guys, but something about DC's injury just doesn't pass the sniff test. I'd like to get a closer look at that groin of his. It can't be as bad as reported.
