    If he accepts his role and the salary that goes with it - this doesn't have to be the case. Not saying that's what is going to happen, but it's what should happen.
    Chances are that our whole budget in the next off-season will be spent on Lance.
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

    Granted this is a 20ish win Magic team, but it's going to be a year where many times we'll be able to coast for 3 quarters and then just out talent people late in games. That is a good feeling.

    CJ Watson is a massive upgrade on Augustin by just watching him on defense. He may be beaten by his player but he won't get burnt. He is far from a black hole DJ was. He will jam his opponent for starters. Shooting wise he didn't have the greatest of his nights but it's OK. It's not like we are solely dependent on him for that.

    Scola scored all of his points I think with that mid range shot. That's cool and a nice weapon for a big guy to have but I would love if the coaching staff designed some plays for him close to the basket and with his back to it. Scola's got good moves and even though he's kinda old now, he could still score some there. Especially against second string bigs.

    I would hardly say George Hill was fantastic. Only 1 TO but zero assists in 29 minutes for our starting point guard ???

    Apologize if this has been posted somewhere.

    No 'no more layups'

    There’s a framed photo inside Frank

    Vogel’s office. In it, former Pacer Jeff Foster — “one of the original smash-mouth founders,” Vogel says with reverence — is defending the paint by corralling an opponent around the neck. Essentially, Foster threw a horse collar, a move that would be cost him a 15-yard penalty in the NFL. But it was this mindset that Vogel had instilled in his team since he took over as head coach.

    No layups.

    This season, however, the Pacers have evolved.

    “It’s funny, we’ve actually shifted our whole philosophy. We’re not a ‘no layups’ team anymore. We’re an NBA math team and we believe in keeping teams off the free throw line and playing with our length.”

    Through the opening quarter against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night, the Pacers blocked three shots and stung their overmatched opponent to 37.5 percent shooting. And the Pacers did this without hacking or horse-collaring — the Magic did not attempt a two-shot foul until the 10:42 mark of the second quarter.

    “Doing it without fouling is important as anything we do now,” Vogel said. “We’re trying to be efficient defensively.”

    You think so? I'll take the over. They won't be great... heck, they won't even be good. But they've got some firepower, and I can see them winning more than 20 games.
    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!

    TURNING POINT: George ended the third quarter with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that gave the Pacers some breathing room with a 69-64 lead and the reserves took it from there, as Luis Scola, Orlando Johnson andIan Mahinmi combined for the next 11 points in a 15-1 run that pushed Indiana's lead to 80-65 with 8:42 remaining.

    Eh. He was moving the ball, but we've got Paul George actually initiating a lot of the sets.

    With Paul and Lance on the wings, and with great-passing bigs like Roy and West, I expect George Hill to have low assist numbers. All 5 guys in the starting unit are passers.

    Agreed. But to his point, the goose egg isn't thrilling.

    Too bad they don't score assists in Bball the same way they do in hockey. The pass that leads to the assist - just as important.

    And people gotta stop with the Peyton Manning comparison. Stop comparing a guy who "led" a team to a Sweet 16 loss as his best accomplishment to a guy who revitalized an entire franchise and will be the most beloved athlete in Indianapolis history (Likely won't be topped, was the whole package.)
    I get what people are saying re: Oladipo cheers, and I agree it's obnoxious that he got a louder ovation that PG24, Larry Bird, etc. He ISN'T Peyton Manning, so the comparisons ARE unfair.

    But saying all Oladipo did was lead his team to a Sweet 16 is a gross oversimplification of Oladipo and missing the point of why IU fans will always have a special place in their heart for his game. That's like saying Reggie only ever led the Pacers to one Finals appearance, in a comparison Pacers fans might understand. What he did transcended the ultimate accomplishments his team had to show for it. He played balls-out every night, when other talented players were far less consistent in terms of results and effort on the season, and took IU from basketball hell to basketball contender in 3 years, having had to play through some of the worst of it.

    We're still talking about Oladipo? Honestly, is anyone even the least bit surprised that he would get an ovation like that?

    Doesn't bother me one bit. Two things that do bother me

    1) people calling IU "Indy"

    2) the Orlando announcer who said "they love their Hoosiers here"

    The cheering when he scored was a bit much. Just wait until Zeller comes back. People will probably be fainting in the stands.

    I didn't hear much cheering when Peyt scored touchdowns against us.

    I've lived out of state more or less the entire time since college and it drives me insane that people from far away, unfamiliar lands such as Ohio will refer to the entire state of Indiana as "Indy." No, Sloopies. No.

    the magnitude of the game last night was also about 9.3 billion times smaller.

    The people cheering when he scored were likely IU fans who are pretty blasé about the Pacers in general. I'm sure there were a fuel dual hatters that cheered when he scored, but I think most people were in the camp that they wanted Oladipo to well, but wanted the Pacers to win.

    Yeah, but the magnitude of Peyt's local impact was also about 9.3 billion times bigger.

    The ovation was fine and I would have given him one, but I just don't care for cheering after he makes a basket. Then again, I bet some people there were IU students who drove up to see him play, people who really don't care that much for the Pacers.

    Yes, I would absolutely view Hill's low assists as a good thing. He is not an assist guy. He is a superb offensive player who can create his own shot if necessary at the end of games and be clutch with game winners.

    Low assists from Hill and high assists from Paul and Lance tell me that we are starting to turn our offense into something very special.

    That's because people were actually scared of the Broncos.
