    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.
    With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!

    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.

    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.

    I've always thought he was getting good looks, just not knocking them down. I think that dunk in the UTAH game may have woken him up a bit. These past two games were the Gerald Green we all hoped we would get! Obviously he won't continue this hot streak forever, but if he can give us 10ppg from from the bench I'm all for it(especially if he can give us one crazy dunk a game lol sheesh)

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

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

    Since Lance is a 2nd round pick......is he a RFA or UFA when his current contract expires?

    I don't think that he will get a HUGE contract offer ( a la Lin / Asik ) but since he's a 2nd round pick...can't some Team make the same offer as what was made to Lin and Asik where it is severely "back loaded"?

    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.

    He's unrestricted. He didn't really get signed to a rookie contract, just got a guaranteed contract in spite of being a 2nd round pick. So the better he plays the harder it will be for us to keep him. Or the easier it will be for us to give up on one of Granger/West.

    I say extend Lance now. I have seen enough to know that he's going to be a solid rotational Player.

    Hmmmmm. So maybe that's why he hasn't been freed.

    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?

    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.

    They really pressured him and he struggled getting the ball up. They really attacked him. But his defense was still stellar compared to Augustin's. The way we have been running our offense, the point is just dishing the ball off anyways. We need more screens for him when they pressure him like that. You have to counter that and make it easy for him. Our team defense will suffer if Augustin replaces him and I believe that is more important to this team the way it is built. We are winning games with our defense, and our defense leads to our offense.
