    Love dominating the bad teams.

    Lance. What to say. This guy needs to get more love around here.

    16pts 7dimes (career high!) and 0 turnovers

    Hibbert quietly getting out of his funk.
    Green with back to back solid shooting performances

    Might be coming together now.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Most impressive to me is that 7/8. Remember when he got here and had a reputation as a chucker?

    I've been very impressed with his willingness to play 5th option in the starting lineup.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Yeah, I love the way we're playing... everyone is starting to get out of their early season funk and coming together to play as a team... Who knows what Pacer will be stepping up every night? surely not the opposing teams....

    It's about time that everything starts to come together.

    Great game by Lance.

    PG didn't score well, but did everything else well.

    West was solid as usual.

    Roy finally coming out of his funk.

    Everyone else played pretty solid.

    Pendergraph's jumper

    Lance has been playing really solid basketball lately. George had a bad first half, but was super disruptive in the 2nd, 5 steals in one half is crazy. Roy is starting to hit the shots he did last season too, and I believe should be above 40 percent on the season once the numbers are tabulated from tonight's game.

    We're in a great spot, only 1.5 games out of 3rd in the East.

    Pretty easy win despite PG's early struggles. Can't be upset about that. Got to be more consistent on the road.

    I've got to say, Ben looked awful tonight. Every time he touched the ball my heartrate went up. He's a good kid and may eventually end up being a good NBA point guard, which is more than I expected. But right now I hate having him on the floor.

    And I didn't mind Tyler's chippiness, but I absolutely hated that (uncalled) charging foul where he barrelled into the defenders with no plan in mind. He badly needs some finishing moves around the rim.

    Hopefully that ankle injury Gerald suffered isn't anything severe as he's really looked good the past few games.

    Really looking a lot more comfortable and looking like himself. He's definitely being used more to his full abilities. He's driving more, he's handling the ball more to get shots.

    He was unfairly thrown under the bus, but knowing his skills and his talent, you knew he'd break out of that slump sooner or later.

    Should probably give Lance an extension while he'll still be cheap.

    Glad he still has another team option left....

    Is Plumlee Mike Posner's tall twin or what? lol

    Great win tonight. Lance is making plays no one else can. The future is bright with that guy. It's starting to look like Bird was right in regards to him. Him and Paul George are the most talented Pacers that have come along in my lifetime. Now all they have to do is keep progressing and live up to that talent.

    It's just hard to see who the odd man out is once Granger returns. Lance is the best facilitator on the team. He also has the best vision, the best handles, and the ability to get into the paint. His fast break game is excellent as well. How do you sit that guy on the bench?

    I think D.J. Augustin needs his spot back, he looked good in the game a couple of nights ago, and Vogel has said he has been hitting every shot in practice, Just my opinion................. oh and by the way Gerald Green is not human...........

    I m not the biggest Hibbert fan, but he is the reason this team plays D that good.

    I guess its tradition in nba. Whoever in contract year from starting 5, others feed him to get numbers. So I dont agree with crytstsm about Hibbert numbers going down. He is focusing on D and other things much beter this year.

    On the other hand, West is getting lots of help from teammates on Offence

    well our bench has sucked so far, except for the past few games, maybe Lance can take this bench and make them a lot better

    He's definitely the best defensive center the NBA Pacers have ever seen. Way better than O'Neal in his prime in my opinion. Roy has impacted every game this year defensively. I think he should be first team all defense.

    I'm glad FO people had the patience with Gerald Green and Lance Stephenson that no one else had because they are playing excellent ball.

    A huge difference between this year and last year: If Paul George has that bad of a first half last year, does anyone think he snaps out of it for the 2nd? Paul George is so much mentally tougher this year that I never doubted that he would play poorly in the 3rd. Paul has a way of changing a game even when his shots aren't falling, and that's huge for a young player.

    Hibbert came through with another big performance. All of our guys who started off slow are starting to turn it on. This team is starting to come together nicely.

    How long do we have Lance under contract for? He has been the best team player so far this year.

    You're only as strong as your weakest link, and the backup point guard position is about as weak as a link can be. I'm ready to try Augustin again. Hansbrough was atrocious tonight.

    Yea but giving him 10-12 minutes a game would really hurt his progression. He needs to get at least 30 minutes a night. And that just doesn't seem possible with Hill and George getting around 40.

    Very good and solid win. I'll go with Lance as MoM in this one. The kid worked his *** off the off season and it pays off almost from the start of the regular season. His movement, his shooting selection and success and his maturity puts a big smile on my face.

    Another solid game from Roy offensively and let's hope he will continue to play like that. Paul George had a bad offensive night but he played some great D as usual to Irving. He also recorded 5 steals. Very happy with Hill and Green too (another master dunk).

    Only negative thing about the night was the poor free throw percentage once again and especially West seems to have lost his touch from there completely.

    PS: Sucks that both Milwaukee and Chicago won their respective games in 2 difficult places to go and win.

    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?
