    What a game!

    The Hornets battled hard, but the better team came out on top.

    PG24 with a historic night and Roy with a triple-double. Great game by those two and if what they did tonight isn't a giant motivation booster, I don't know what is.

    Great team win!

    Remember, PG's trade value will never be any higher

    Well, technically what Peck says is true.....PG's trade value will never be any higher......putting up these #s would help solidify the statement. But just because the statement is true, it doesn't mean that it will happen.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Normally, this would be a disappointing game for Hibbert, who's still not out of funk in offense.

    But this time, I'll forgive him as he rebounded well and blocked so many shots.

    Fun fact: He made more rebounds and blocks than his points for his first-ever triple double this season!

    Hibbert is still struggling with his shot, but he played how you want to see him play. He just didn't perform well in the shooting area.

    Like I said before Hibbert should be used more as Ibaka, let him block and rebound and use him once in a while on the offensive side, force feeding Hibbert is not smart in my opinion.

    The same should be done with Paul George, he is to me so similar to Danny that's not even funny, let him shoot 3's to open the floor and make him drive once in a while, in other words play him the same way you play Danny minus the post up's.

    I hope we can look back at this game in the future as the turning point game for PG! Two nice games in a row for big Roy! Just be a consistent 15 and 10 guy and guard the paint big fella!

    Wish we had a backup point like Vasquez! I love his game. So smooth with the ball. I think he could be a solid starter on a playoff team.

    YOU AND ME BOTH!

    I liked Vasquez in the 010 draft, and for a #28 pick he's turning out well. He's got great size for a PG, looks to pass, and makes his team mates better players.

    Yep I've been watching Vasquez since college and I wanted him to be drafted in the first round but no by the Pacers, I knew he was going to come to a team that doesn't help point guards, I bet he looks like garbage here.

    Memphis was not the right place for him either, I'm glad he ended up in New Orleans, I expected him to be good but not this good, he is a pretty damn good floor general, he is the one that makes that offense moves, Vasquez is so good that he has made Aminu a serviceable player.

    Aminu's defense and especially rebounding s what has made him a serviceable player not Vasquez. Aminu is one of the best if not the best rebounder at the SF position in the league.

    You are talking about two areas in the game were nobody gives a damn about(see Paul George) I meant offensively, Vasquez helps Aminu get easy baskets and easy dunks, since getting drafted Aminu has looked like bust written all over, now with Vasquez he looks like a pretty good serviceable player that not only can rebound and play D but can also score some.

    Those 2 points are quite interesting since several Hornets fans seem to disagree.

    Here's a link to their game thread for the Pacers game -> http://www.hornetsreport.com/showthr...rs-6-00-PM-CST

    Several people whined about their bad offense, Vasquez's playmaking ability and Aminu's defense.

    Granted, most of it seemed like knee-jerk reactions (quite similar to the ones we often have here) but there is a valid point about Aminu's defense on Paul George. He left him a lot of times wide open for 3s.

    It gives some good perspective about how we approach a player's performance given which team we support. The grass always seems greener on the other side

    There was less Vogelball and more open sets. This was the best ball movement and shot creating the Pacers have had this season by far, and the stats show it. EIGHT turnovers in 4 quarters plus overtime is impressive by any standards, especially the way the team was playing. The team had 26 assists, but really could have had closer to 36 were it not for some easy looks being missed. That will happen, but it's survivable when the offense isn't limiting possessions like Vogel had it doing prior to a few days ago. George Hill played well and had 0 turnovers, Lance did his thing (could've had 8-10 assists, but again the missed shots).

    Paul George's night speaks for itself (as does Hibbert's), but let's temper both with a reality check: Hibbert shot 3-for-12. Paul George only had 2 points off of free throws, so until he changes his game he won't be sniffing 30 again without dropping at least 6 threes, which isn't likely to be a regular occurrence.

    And yeah, this is what we want out of PG. Hopefully this is the start of his scoring onslaught.

    Hill had a great floor game? 16 5 and 6 with pretty good D.
