    Part of that was because they played so little. Part of that was because George played so well, and Augustin and to a lesser degree Hansbrough played so poorly.

    I'm very, very glad about this win. It was a game of terrific importance.

    As I said earlier, as the East seems to play out, chances are that we have to win the Central in order to attain a good playoff seed. So, we must absolutely have the upper hand in our games against Chicago and (possibly) Milwaukee.

    Great time to step up, PG

    Four Eastern Conference teams with better records than us lost tonight. Philly, Miami, Brooklyn and Chicago. We're back in the playoff picture!
    We lead the central division.

    George Hill (3-16) and David West (3-12) had rough outings. You'd expect a blowout loss looking at those numbers. I guess PG was seriously upset about his last performance.
    True that and i will further mention that besides Paul being Superman,it really helped that Chicago also shot terribly.We are used to this and if I'm not wrong most of our wins have come because the opponent shoot terribly too.It's worrying and sad but that's how it is.We can only hope we will improve.

    5 road wins, NBA high 12 road games played so far

    It's a lot like last season where Indy proved itself on the road while Philly got fat at home. Let's say Danny rolls back into the lineup to start FEB...right when they get 10 of 12 at home, plus the all-star break. If you'll recall my thread about this previously the 2 road games will still feature flights back home that same night which means they will sleep in their own beds for an entire month, barring AS activities.

    Could be when the team "suddenly" explodes in the standings.



    Ian is coming around. I just wish he could hold onto the ball. If he could he could get you an easy 10 off the bench all the time. Green had a helpful but quiet night, ditto Young. Lance on the boards really helped (esp when you dunk a miss/pass).

    But obviously this team is all Hill-West on offense with Paul starting to show up, and then Roy on defense. Add Danny back and really this team is very similar to last year. They just have had a clunky start without Danny and while trying to fit in the new bench.

    Speaking of him,what the hell has happened to his jump shot?It's not that he misses a lot of shots,it seems like ages he last scored one.It's gone AWOL or something.

    Teams consistently shoot poorly against us, even good shooting teams. That isn't luck, that is design. That is the team going out there and playing great defense every time down, making the other team work hard for every shot.

    We know PG really has the tools to be an elite scorer. What he really needs is consistency. He's still young and has a lot of time to reach that level of consistency in scoring. We just need to be patient and bear with his poor shooting outings from time to time.

    We still need a lot of work to do in offense. While our defense has been superb for most of the games like this one, offense still is the name of the game. Defense can't win the Pacers a lot of games if they themselves cannot capitalize on scoring from the other end and shoot less than 40% from the field.

    Basically, our defense forces the opposing offense to resemble the Pacers offense. Only fair, right? lol

    Why can't we all just admit that if Danny can return healthy we have one of the better wing tandems in the league? lol They're not Lebron and Wade, but they blend pretty well together and their size is a huge issue for most teams.
    Wait, we haven't admitted that already? I have.

    And as floundering as Roy's offense has been, if he was wagging his finger he could Mutumbo his way back to the AS game. He's adjusted more shots than PhotoShop.

    It was never very good, except for a month or two he had a pretty good stretch.

    Best game Paul George has ever played. Not raining 3s, just having to work for his points against a quality defender and making some tough shots along the way. It was the most I've seen him dialed in for a game in a long while. He really didn't want to let us lose tonight.

    Roy got lucky on that drive by Deng near the end, he did go straight up (sorta) but he didn't get the ball and there was a ton of contact. Surprised that wasn't 2 shots for Deng.

    Pretty strange game when we can have 14pts from our staring backcourt and have West play a poor game and still get the win.

    It's historically bad this year though. He has to be shooting some ridiculous 10-15% from outside of 10 feet this year.

    Teams are going shoot horribly against us. We mostly allow them to shoot mid range jumpers and some 3s. We are taking away the higher percentage shots and we only give them low percentage ones. That's our defensive design. And it's working great.

    Wanna know which teams are going to shoot against us? Teams that have bigs that can hit the mid range 3 and teams with sharp shooters at the wings and point. That's why Golden State beat us.

    I haven't seen him take very many though, so maybe he's given up on it!

    And SA. There are few teams that have the roster to execute the offense to exploit the pacers defense with the way we've been playing.

    Helpful?No.Quite?Yes.

    From what we have seen from this team(really poor shooting,bonehead decision making at times,some games we had a very good flow though,players way under performing,tough schedule with most road trips so far etc),a 9-9 record is a very decent one i guess.We can only get better from here.

    He misses literally every single one. I scream at the tv every time. I don't know why he keeps shooting them. Might as well just pass the ball to the defender.

    Nunti it's a combination man.You just can't give credit only to our D.They may have also missed some easy shots/baskets that another night would score with closed eyes.

    He only played 6 minutes, so what he did do I would consider helpful.

    I'm also still mad at Vogel for calling that horrible play at the end, why can't he call something else? Doesn't he knows that teams have scouts and everybody and their mom knows that same play? Not only that but Paul George was on fire so he decided to call that bs? I'm losing faith in Vogel. ...

    Why are teams consistently missing those shots against us? There isn't some conspiracy to miss a ton of "easy" shots every game by the league. There is only one common factor, the Pacers defense.
