    I know Reggie has called another game other than the one where 31 was retired and the Knicks one. Maybe a Cavaliers one around Thanksgiving? I remember sitting right behind him when he had just retired.
    To be honest I don't think he called that Suns game the night his number was retired. I can't really prove it, but I seem to remember him sitting baseline in section 1 or 20 and leaving before the game was over as we were being blown out. And I was under the impression that the Knicks game this season was the first game of ours he announced at the Fieldhouse.

    "In the equivalent of more than a quarter -- 15:43 to be exact -- Atlanta went 1 of 21 from the field, the only basket awarded to Harris on a goaltending call against Hibbert."

    Case and point. When this team syncs, we are the best defensive team in the NBA.

    Center of Attention

    The Pacers held a distinct advantage against the Hawks when Roy Hibbert was on the floor rather than on the bench during their first-round series.

    Here is the breakdown:

    Statistic On Off
    Pts diff +58 -27
    FG pct 44.7 35.4
    Opp FG pct 40.0 47.2

    Just curious....but does anyone know if Granger was at any of the games sitting on the bench or anything?

    I'm hoping he's there rooting the Team on.

    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.

    As I am just into the last couple minutes of this game (watching it recorded), Hill attacking the basket is perfect. Lance attacking too. It would be nice if Paul went at the rim as well. That's what our offense needs to be.

    I am really happy with the George Hill contract at a flat 8 million a year, he can be sometimes inconsistent, but he always has these quiet games, and comes through for us alot of the times. I'm looking forward to see him guard Felton next series, who isn't as fast as Teague, hopefully he picks up on that Felton DRIVES RIGHT EVERY SINGLE TIME.
    For the record, and this isn't just you, but everyone on the board here -

    Please watch how the Pacers defend the PnR, especially against quick guards who can shoot. Everyone thinks George Hill is getting beat. He is NOT. He is correctly defending the PnR limiting layups and threes. And you know what happens, just like in the regular season, his opponents end up playing like ****.

    Teague, who was defended by Hill almost the entire series, shot 34% from the field. For a point guard he is very efficient, shooting 45% during the season and 54% TS.

    Hill played great defense and he was not getting beat. Your retort? "Yeah but Teague didn't score but it led to lots of easy baskets." No it didn't. There's a reason Teague only had 5 assists per game this series. Hill defended him very well.

    =)

    Edit - Also, compare how both DJ and Hill defend the same plays. DJ is an absolute train wreck on defense in the same situations. You should also note that Hill has absurdly long arms, and he uses that to his advantage. He doesn't have to be in his opponents jock strap to limit scoring opportunities. (in fact, sometimes his opponents get a false sense that they're open leading to contested shots)

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    Fun night for me on Twitter.

    Firstly, the Pacers official account favorited a little jab I took at Bill Simmons, asking if he was now a Pacers fan this week.

    He never responded

    http://twitter.com/TMJonsson/status/330509645414289408


    Secondly, and REALLY randomly...

    Peter Vecsey started following me. That was unexpected. Neat yet bizarre.

    I thought so as well.
    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.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    My only complaint with the announcers was that neither one seemed to know that Roy is 7'2". They referred to him as 7'1", 7 feet, and at one point Burke underestimated his weight by about 50 lbs. While that may be nitpicking, wouldn't that info be on a stat sheet or something right in front of them? Certainly not the biggest deal, but c'mon.

    So nice to see Roy break out in Atlanta, West to have a 2nd excellent game in a row, and that ridiculous losing streak there broken. Lots of demons exorcised last night!

    You said that right. This board is crazy how fast some jump on and off bandwagons of individual players. Re-sign the man NOW! LOL

    Your right, and if DWest has a poor series against the Knicks the pendulem will swing back the other way again.

    The other day I stated the all 3 of the Pacers Allstars needed to play well to win. The later it came to me that the Pacers have 4 players on their roster who have been Allstars.

    Paul George
    Roy Hibbert
    David West... twice
    AND
    Danny Granger

    4 AllStars!!! There are teams who don't have 1 Allstar let alone 4! I'm sure many of you already realized this, but I didn't until I got to thinking about it.

    Good thought, but an all-star in a suit doesn't add much beyond moral support.

    Melo and JR are going to score, but I feel Iman Shumpert with his "D", reb, and scoring can be a problem for the Pacers along with Raymond Felton. Hill his going to have to guard Felton well in this series in order for the Pacers to advance to the ECF.

    Yeah, he follows me too, still doesn't make it any less surprising to get that email saying he is now one of your followers.

    Which reminds me.... I need to find that email that says Antonio Davis is now following me on Twitter. Now THAT one was really unexpected and awesome.

    I'm not too concerned about Melo, he's injured afterall, it's to our advantage if he tries to play hero-ball. It may work once or twice, but George will make it tough on him, and a dislocated shoulder is rough, it also means he may be reluctant to drive it. Smith can go off, but he's a detriment sometimes too, as we saw in the Celtics series. I'll let them take contested off balance jumpers all night long and live with the result. It will play into our hands more times than it miraculously succeeds. Boston really isn't very good at this point and are even more offensively inept than us without Rondo, we should be able to punish NY more than they were capable of doing for their mistakes. Plus our fast break should have a field day if we're able to collect the long rebounds and push with Lance, Hill and George after long 2's and 3's.

    We match up with New York much better than we matched up with ATL imo. This will be a tougher series because NY is simply the better team than ATL, but we're more suited to beat NY, the plodders and iso/ 3 point shooters who are last in the NBA in fast break points than Balls to the wall atlanta. Against NY we'll always have time to set our defensive sets up.
