    Steph Curry's ankles are going to curse him forever it seems. I would always be concerned if I were a Warriors fan, or played fantasy bball, I'd sell high on him.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Score first, score first, score first. This is a big reason why I love Rubio and Rondo type of pg's.
    And this is why Christ Paul is the best point guard in the league. He can do both, and defend.

    I really thought Drose was going to come back as a better point guard and floor general, I don't see that.

    It seems that people get stuck on their views as a player and those views stay with them. Saying that, I don't think any of them except the lady have watched the Pacers this year. Those arguments worked last year, but PG was clutch in the Miami series games1-6 and so far this year. But we all know that, so screw those guys lol

    Finally Scott Brooks is playing OKC's young guys, granted he doesn't really have any other choice. Steven Adams looks pretty good.

    I've watched Adams play a couple of times, and have been impressed as he wasn't given a much of a draft eval on PD.

    He won't play him when it matters on the playoffs, his mancrush Perkins is going to play big minutes again.

    Why would he play rookie Adams over Perkins in the playoffs with Perkins having PO experience and a ring?

    I am writing this post to gauge interest in another go-around for the Pacers Digest Forum Awards (last held at the All-Star break in 2012). If you are interested in participating (i.e. nominating and voting), please 'Thank' this post. Since the last few post-game thread polls attracted upwards of eighty voters each, a minimum of forty 'Thanks' will convince me that such an effort is worth pursuing again this year.

    The awards will be held at seasons end - hopefully in mid-June - if there is significant interest.
    Here are some links for those unfamiliar with the awards: The 8th Annual PD Forum Awards - Nominations Thread / Post More Often Award

    That is all.
    I doubt you will get the thanks buried in this thread. But I would love to vote.

    The Magic.
    I like their team of youth, and they still have Davis and Harris yet to come back from being injured.

    Was the question not, which team is MOST LIKELY to make the playoffs and why?

    I don't see a question that says which team will absolutely make the playoffs.

    If you need more reasons, You can look up what Chris Paul said after playing against him and the Magic.

    Will Scott Brooks return to Oklahoma's bench next season if he doesn't make the finals this one?

    Dennis Schroder just got suspended. And Demarcus Cousins didn't even buy him dinner first....

    I have to see if I can find it. I saw it as a quick blurb as Paul was being interviewed in front of his locker. Basically said Oladipo's D changed the way he's been able to play in their first four games though.

    Note that I'm saying "point guard" meaning that I thought he was going to slow down because of the injury and was going to be able to play more like a pure point guard.

    I also thought he was going to have time to study other great point guards and maybe try to do some of the things they did.

    If study made you a great point guard Brandon Knight would be an all-star.

    Rose also isn't going to hone his PG skills by practicing by himself for a year.
