    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Review:
    Jared Wade: Indy Plays So Bad that Even Historic Defense Doesn’t Allow Come Back

    Right before the game, Pacers’ coach Frank Vogel said that his team hadn’t been able
    to put together a complete game so far this year. They had shown flashes in each,
    but it always fell off the rails at some point. “The first six games we had a stretch in
    each game where a certain unit just got waxed,” said Vogel.

    Tonight, that stretch lasted about 30 minutes. Indiana started off the game like
    gangbusters, forcing turnovers and getting out on the break. Before long their easy-
    bucket-aided offense looked swell and they were up nine. Then, nothing remotely
    good seemed to happen for a half-hour of game time. The fourth quarter was better,
    in the sense that the offense looked to re-find itself as Tyler Hansbrough and George
    Hill reanimated a team that had looked like a waste of jersey detergent for much of
    the night.

    Unfortunately, as the Indiana defense put the clamps on a gassed Toronto offense,
    the Pacers just couldn’t make shots. They were getting good ones, too, for the first
    time all game (although they also passed up a few good jumpers they should have
    taken). For the game, they shot 16-for-38 inside 8 feet, and an impressive 0-for-5
    from 8 to 16 feet, according to NBA.com.

    Here is their fourth quarter shooting chart. At first glance, it may look like more
    mid-range jumpers than you would want. But two from to the top of the key by
    Gerald Green and Hill were both fine looks in rhythm so they weren’t all ill-advised.
    Moreover, look at all the missed shots in the paint.


    The important part to getting some good looks was the spacing: They were
    spreading the floor, getting both ball and player movement for the first time
    all night. They looked good after dozens and dozens of terrible, wasted, awful
    possessions.

    And on the the other end, they were truly excellent, as the Raptors couldn’t
    even conceive of getting a good shot.

    Just look at all those Xs. They shot 1-for-15 in the quarter. That is 6.7%. Six.
    Point. Seven. And they won. Which was historic....CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s



    Bucksketball
    Danny Granger vs. Luc Mbah a Moute: Indiana Pacers SF breaks the mold

    Indiana Pacers SF Danny Granger has done something LeBron James, Kevin Durant
    and Carmelo Anthony have not over the course of the last three seasons: he has
    played well against Milwaukee Bucks SF Luc Mbah a Moute.

    Milwaukee Bucks forward Luc Mbah a Moute is perimeter defense expert who has a
    proven record of suppressing scoring stats for NBA stars like LeBron James, Kevin
    Durant and Carmelo Anthony. Surprisingly, Indiana Pacers small forward Danny
    Granger has fared better than anyone in the aforementioned trio when going against
    LRMAM. Granger is not as strong or as quick and LeBron, he's not as accurate from
    long range as Durant and he's not as talented as Melo, but he is the only one who
    boosted his production against Luc. It's Granger than fiction...

    ...unless it's not. To take my initial point at face value would be risky. Nay, it would
    be downright Grangerous. The comparisons to LBJ, KD and Melo are a double-edged
    sword. Production is graded out relative to normal averages, and Granger doesn't
    match the baseline numbers those other three guys have put up in most scoring
    categories.

    It's the problem I've pointed out with Brandon Jennings many times: improvement
    from a low baseline level does not always imply better production than what occurs
    with a decline from a high baseline level. Even so, Granger has somehow managed
    to play better against LRMAM than he has against the rest of the league, which isn't
    something many players can say.

    What are you doing?

    I've combined three seasons worth of stats for each player in a select group of top-
    end perimeter scorers (Danny Granger in this edition), and compared production
    levels to when Luc Mbah a Moute is on the court with that player. The basic
    assumption is that LRMAM matched up with Granger in man-to-man situations, or
    at least that he made a direct impact on Granger's production. If we can't assume
    that much, what's an ace perimeter defender good for anyways?

    What does it mean?

    The sample size for each on-court "matchup" is too small to be predictive of future
    performance -- LRMAM and Granger shared the court for 223 minutes over the last
    three years -- so the findings are merely descriptive. In other words, this is a strict
    evaluation of what has already happened, not any grand pronouncement that future
    matchups will proceed along the exact same lines.

    What did you find?



    Notes & Observations

    Granger manages to play well against Luc in part because he's not a star player of
    the magnitude of LeBron James, Kevin Durant or Carmelo Anthony. Danny gets to
    play off-ball...CONTINUE READING AT BREW HOOP



    Gothic Ginobili Review:
    Small Market Mondays #2: "The Buck Stops Here!" Mike Dunleavy MVP Watch


    Former Indiana Pacers superstar Mike Dunleavy, heavy favorite in the 2012-2013
    MVP race, was posting an astronomical PER of 27.12 on 70% shooting and leading
    his beloved Buckaroos to an undefeated record at this time last week. Until they
    played the powerhouse Grizzlies, that is. The Bucks lost that game by 18 as
    Dunleavy only made 4 of 10 shots but that wasn't the worst of it. After thoroughly
    handling the Wizards on Friday night, Dunleavy received some terrifying news:
    his father was in consideration to be the next coach of the classless Los Angeles
    Lakers. This terrible news rocked Dunleavy to his very core as his posted a season
    low 14 minutes in his next game against the Celtics, a 4-point loss which they
    definitely would've won had their MVD ("Most Valuable Dunleavy", not "Most
    Venereal Disease") not been traumatized by the news. He became so angered at
    these developments that he flew into a fit of understandable rage and tried
    desperately to exact physical revenge on the Celtics, fouling 4 times in his 14
    minutes! Should he not be able to get over this disgusting news, we might be
    forced to change our MVP watch to another deserving Small Market Superstar.

    Sometimes, the brightest stars really do die out the quickest.

    very tough game tonight but if we can win I can take a deep breath, because this is a good Milwaukee team, George Hill and Paul George need to play well

    We better win this and we better pound them.

    I'm getting sick of these close games that aren't even worth sweating out because we've ended up losing them. Most of them have been to mediocre teams.

    3-5.

    I know we're only 8 games into the season, but it's very frustrating watching this knowing how much better this team is. With or without Granger.

    Jennings and Monta are good at getting steals. I hope our guys are actually prepared tonight. I don't want a turnover fest.

    Even if we lose, I just want Hibbert to show up, watching him has been painful :/.

    Hopefully Paul is going up against him and is on him like glue to at least try and slow him down, but Ellis has been known to light it up against us in his career.

    I watched the highlight video posted above. Roy had 23/14 against the Bucks. Seems like a lifetime ago. Granger looked like a stud scoring 21. Those were the days.
    Find me on the internets @mattiecolin

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    Good news, vnzla81! Danny Granger is highly unlikely to outperform Monta Ellis tonight.

    Play Roy, West, Tyler, Paul and George. Play 3 man in the box and let George shoot 20 times and let Paul shoot 30 times. Jennings can't stop George and Ellis can't stop Paul. Win freakin Win!
