    David West carries the team again - he owned Scola in the last 5 minutes lol. Great win. Hopefully the Cavs and Pistons can hold on.

    We shot at 44.2 % despite the horror show in the second half which really shows how good our first half was. Satisfied with the win and the first half performance. I guess it's in the team's DNA to surrender any big leads. Roy reverted back to being embarrassing (offensively) tonight.


    Oh and that damn Pacers FO burnt us with their decision to sign West last season. We should have gone for Nene.

    And this is without Granger, making it more impressive.

    exactly, I could see us being 20-9 or 21-8 with Granger right now, but this team has been very good without Granger so far this year

    Also, this was the best game Lance has played all season. He missed his free throws, but man whenever Phoenix would be looking to make that final push and get up over the hump he would make a game-changing steal or open up the floor for somebody to take an easy shot.

    My only complaint is that Tyler should have been given more time to play in this game. He was the 2nd leading scorer before West and PG caught up in the points column in the final minutes. Vogel should at least recognize whose playing well and let them play a little more than usual.

    Good win btw. Hope the momentum continues and get some huge margin against the other East teams as the positioning for 4-8 spots are really tight at this point.

    He does everything and will find ways to help the team when something else doesn't go for him. All around player and a bright future. I firmly believe that and we may have problem to keep him here.

    That find he had with Hill on the fast break was pretty badass.

    Was it Lance who threw that alley-oop to West in the fast break and West barely got the ball before going out of bounds?

    Nope, that would be our wonderful back-up pg, D.J Augustine.

    As soon as Danny comes back, Lance needs to become backup pg and D.J. needs to be in street clothes.

    The sooner the better.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    We've had a really easy schedule so far.

    I'm much happier with the way we're playing now as opposed to early in the season, but I want to keep things in perspective, as well.

    This is the second game (in a row? can't remember) where Lance's number has been called down the stretch to lead the offense.

    Very interesting.

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    Lance was the PG when he and DJ were on the floor together. Something is wrong with Hibbert; he looks tired at the halfway point in the quarter and he does a lot of walking up the court.

    And the one poster that has 'thanked' the second quote thus far, says all we really need to know.

    I thought some people said last year's record had more to do with the condensed schedule and the Pacers' young legs. Yet this year they have the same record thru 29 games, while missing their leading scorer, and while playing terribly on offense. What gives?

    Apparently they aren't nearly as bad as some would love to keep saying they are.

    I see all those that were claiming this team was going no where earlier in the season, and there were a lot of you, are now quiet. Not a signature win but i will take it. This team could have came out flat but they didn't. Can't wait until danny returns. Pacers gonna be scary good.
