    Regardless of how they are playing, it makes more sense style wise to have Stephenson start.

    George Hill is not a distributor, Lance Stephenson is. Having someone in the lineup who can get the ball to others would be huge for our starters. DJ Augustin fills that role on the bench.

    Pacers settled down a bit there. Bout time. Tired of all the sloppy playing leading to many TOs.

    Very good quarter.

    Now really free Lance!

    The starters play very very very good with Lance.

    This looks more like the Pacers we saw last year.

    I remember when people wanted that Johnson guy over Tyler, he sucks.

    Yeah, I think it's a chemistry thing. Lance obviously has more than Green does. Who knows, maybe Green could eventually fit better with the starters. I hope he does, but I'm also liking what I'm seeing from Lance.

    Much better at the end and the improvement is vastly welcomed.I'm very happy with Lance's overall game.

    Maybe. Lance has court vision, but I am not at all sure I want him to be told to go out and be a distributor. That didn't work so well before. But it is working well for him to be a scorer who sometimes executes some nice passes.

    I also just don't want Lance to be thrust into the starting lineup this early. Not sold on his ability, mentally, to handle that right now. Let him build up some more confidence and show that he can play well consistently.

    But I'm almost always inclined to be conservative with these things.

    I am convinced Lance should be starting while Granger is out.

    Boy these Kings are a huge team, aren't they? They cleared the boards early on giving them tons of second chance points. I'd like to see Cousins on a no non-sense team, I think he could be the league's second best center on a daily basis.

    Not a smart decision to interview Lance seconds after he sprinted up the court to end the half LOL

    It is nice to see him string together a few good games. I don't think I have ever said that about him before.

    Green started to settle down a little too. Good to see that.

    Sam Young looked terrible for the first time I've got to see him.

    To put it mildly. I stopped watching interviews with him midway through last season. Almost always a painful experience.

    Harden with Houston's first 6 points. Geez, he is looking like Jordan right now.

    I keep waiting for him to come back down to earth. He can't be this consistently good...can he? Fun to watch unfold.

    Thats great. I love seeing that, I really do.

    But until he starts imposing his will on offense - he is a let down for me. I love Paul George, I really do. Maybe I put unrealistic expectations on him, which is my fault. But I'm not asking him to be a superstar...or even a star. All I want to see right now is for him to at least attempt to take over, but he won't even do that.

    In our first two games we have been down against the Raptors and the Bobcats in the final minutes of each game. Thats when real players take over...Paul George didn't do that. If he tried and failed, that would be one thing, that would be growing pains - but the fact that he didn't even try tells me a lot. You really think Jordan would let that happen? What about Reggie? Hell, I don't even thing Granger would sit around and watch. You either have that killer instinct, or you don't. I no longer believe George has it.

    I still love George and I still think he will be a good player, but we need another plan if we were banking on him taking us to the next level.

    I was ONE OF THEM! I've still not given up on him. Then he wouldn't have to be super good to be better than Tyler.
