    Default Pacers/Cavaliers Postgame Thread

    That was a very interesting game and I'm glad we completely turned around in the second half and won it.

    28 points in the second half was very impressive.

    - I think you have to give Roy Hibbert credit, he makes a huge impact with his defense. He doesn't let his poor offensive performances get him down. Can you imagine if Jermaine O'Neal went through a slump of this proportion?

    - The fact that Sam Young or Gerald Green will have to be in the line up for perhaps multiple games is unsettling

    - Hansbench looked good tonight! Having two brothers in the 2nd unit may help cohesiveness and chemistry... interesting thing to watch going foward!

    I won't.Yes he's magnificent on D and that's why he still saves face .But he's so bad on the other end that it's close to ridiculous.Tonight he couldn't get a basket even if he was all by himself under the rim.It's not a slump any more.Slump would be something for 4-5 games.And lol about Jermain O'Neal.He wouldn't be at that situation cause he was twice the player Hibbert is on offense.


    Good comeback.Positives from the game are certainly Ben Hansbrough who has probably offered the same DJ did so far,PG continues to boss games lately and that's very encouraging.West was once again really good with some neat passes too.Roy and Gerald Green should have a Z- each.The former just for his offense and the latter for his overall game.

    Yeah, Jermaine was the better player. My point being that a lot of players let their performance on the offensive end effect their performance on defense and Hibbert isn't doing that. Jermaine had to have a thousand touches a game to be effective.

    I got what you mean, rock but I'm telling you that it would affect him for not so long because really good players will always find ways to score.Jermain was more than solid on both ends.

    No. I can't imagine Jermaine O'Neal going through a slump like this. That's because he never went through a slump like this one. He didn't shoot the ball that well his last couple of years because he was playing on two bad knees and a bad shoulder but he never struggled to score like Roy is this year.

    With that said, Roy's defense has been fantastic. His offense has been rather Rodman-esque.

    Cool tweet about Paul George from Micheal Grady after the game:

    @Michael Grady With the way Paul George has played lately, it's safe to say he's in the process of fighting Agent Smith in the subway. Starting 2 believe...

    Enjoyed the game. Thought PG played well (though if he finished hard at the rim every time he'd have another 6 points or so). Like that Hill came back strong after a really rough first half.

    Other thoughts, Lance looked really good till he got injured. Glad it's a sprain and not broken. Ben not only played pretty well, but his style of play made the entire second unit look better. Also, his D is so much better than DJs that it almost feels wrong to compare the two. Hibbert is struggling, but his D is still excellent. I can't imagine West leaving after this year (not that I can't imagine it, I can't imagine this team without him. He's just that important).

    The Cavs were shooting out of their minds in the first, figured it would come back down and we'd be able to make a run. A lot of the shots they were hitting weren't easy.

    damn those numbers are right along the numbers I projected from him(in his prime of course) after we drafted him. Hope he keeps it up he looks so much more comfortable off the dribble than he was at the start of the year. He looks like he really turned the page and it's clicked.


    also props to Ben for all the bashing I did of the kid he played hard tonight and just that is a major upgrade for us at the pg (which is sad to say).

    Best stretch of PG's career - he's coming into his own. 24, 8, and 4 over the last 5 games.

    The best thing about it is how quiet it really has been. For most part it hasn't been him getting hot and going off for 10 points in 3 minutes, instead it is just a consistent scoring throughout the game.

    The resilience of this team impressed me.

    Great team win!

    Hopefully, we take advantage of this pretty favorable stretch of games because there's definitely some auspicious signs.

    Good game. You just knew that the Cavs would stop hitting 87.5% of their 3s at some point.

    Ben is receiving a solid B+ in my book. He played exactly like a backup should. Let's hope he keeps this up

    Was a good game. Hibbert's offense is a straight tragedy, but the team played well.

    Unless you think Evan Turner is an all star also (puts up the same numbers) Paul is prob not going to the AS game
