I know it's crazy and an over-reaction from tonight's game, but I'd almost rather see Ben start at PG, sliding GH over to shooting guard that seen Green or Young start there... Ben can actually pass the ball, and it'd be nice to see that with the starters.
So you're saying our bench shoots as well as our max center then? They must be due for some big paydays!
Lets wait until about ten to fifteen games before we anoint Ben as a serviceable backup.
yeah, Lance isn't going to be good to go in 2 days. 2 weeks maybe.

I wouldn't expect Lance to be playing this week, but next week he should be able to play.
I went to the game today and a win is a win but the game was just ok, maybe they looked better on tv?
Speaking of which, I hope this is the kick in the pants that DJA needs. We've seen what getting 0 pts and being doubted did for Paul George: it lit a fire for the first time in his career (Hi to the guys who said he was really career 14 ppg material) and may well get him into the All Star Game if he keeps it up. On that note, another great game for him. And I'm glad they're not force feeding Hibbert anymore. Let him score on putbacks and wide open dunks.
The 23 points the Cavaliers scored in the 2nd half is the fewest points allowed by any team this season.
EDIT: Also, apparently, the fewest points the Pacers have allowed in a half since the ABA/NBA merger.

I said I wanted to see 5 games from you PG, and 5 games you have given me. Hot damn son, well done. Can't wait to have him and Danny on the wings. Best wing combo in the NBA after Lebron and Wade if Paul can keep this up.
Michael Grady is a thief!!! I started the Neo/Matrix analogy long ago, probably prematurely.

RT @Hoya2aPacer "When I play this game I love. I play to make my teammates better. But I'm a mouther****er on defense."
Also, I'm just sayin' but it says a lot about how ****** our backup PG has been so far this season when all Ben did tonight was pretty much try on D and not **** up on offense and I felt like I was watching a whole different group. DJ should probably start brushing up on the romantic languages.
Quinn Buckner said that Ben plays basketball like a football player. That's the second unit we need, hard nosed, physical, scrappy, with talent mixed in. With the Hans-Bros doing what they do best it can rub off on the other guys on the court. That's what had been missing, IMO, from last year's team with Lou, Dahntay, Barbosa, and (at times) DC.
Hope these guys can keep it up, not a pretty win, but there's no such thing as a bad win.

I'm intrigued by the Hansbrough boys. At the least, it forced the opposing team to play our game - it forced them to react to neverending energy, hustle, and scrappy play, which is kind of what our bench did last season. I want to see more of it!
Thought Gerald Green played OK for the most part. Shot poorly, but his shots were good ones. Defense for the most part was OK. Used his size well. Looked like a guy that will make a positive contribution.
This is not a slight at Ben in any way, just sad, sad commentary on how bad DJ was.
