    One thing I want to see happening is that Vogel needs to call more plays for Scola, I'm not sure why they keep ignoring him, they rather post up Mahinmi than Scola we have a weapon that we are not really using.

    If he keeps this up I will be willing to use the S word when talking about PG. I would love to see PG go off on the Bulls and we can get the MVP chant going. Made me ill listening to the Bull fans chant that at Pacer home game for Rose. Every time he touched the ball.

    FWIW, this team reminds me of the 2003 era Piston's teams. Not the individual players, but the team as a whole. Both of them just grind away, rebound and defend, uneven offense, until suddenly, they make a couple of shots and suddenly it is a 20 pt game.

    I think Watson has fit in seemlessly into our team. Not suggesting he's great, but it just seems his style of play and his temperament have fit in perfectly. Maybe that is just the fact that he's a veteran who has played on good teams. Plus he seems to know what he is, what he is good at, and what he is capable of and doesn't try to be something he is not.

    Its crazy how much better PG has gotten since the Atlanta series last year. I would say that him and Josh Smith mostly played each other even in that series, with PG having a slight edge. Tonight? PG made JSmoove look laughable, on both ends of the floor. The Heat series really changed PG.

    Gotta laugh at this poll, I think that this is the first time Pacers Digest has agreed on anything in years. Boo to the two voters who had to be different!

    Anyone got a clip of that Roy block on Drummond's hook shot? That was just nasty.

    The last couple of years reminded me of the old Pistons teams. But if PG keeps this play up all season, they will be different than the Pistons because the Pistons never had a superstar player like that.

    I think the Pistons are going about it the wrong way (building there team that is). Its clear they seen the writing on the wall and went out and got long athletic players, and they are trying to get a power post game like the Pacers, but they got a bunch of guys who are just nothing but gunners. Stuckey played there for 6 years and was nothing but a gunner, Jennings is a gunner too. Smith is a chucker. They got a bunch of high usage gunners who do not compliment low post players.
    They should've just kept Brandon Knight and Calderon. At least they could shoot from three and BKnight is younger, cheaper, and making good progress too.

    Why can't Josh Smith focus on being more like LaMarcus Aldridge and less like a poor-man's Antoine Walker? Those fadeaway 3-pointers are terrible and most of the time results in empty possessions.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Detroit is gonna have to move one of their big guys and move Josh Smith to the PF position, they need a do it all player and don't have anybody like that in the starting unit, Gordon Hayward could be nice there.

    KCP isn't playing because he's a rookie. That's really the only reason given. Mo Cheeks has a 4-guard rule in his rotation, and he said KCP has to wait his turn.

    I'd echo that my dream trade is for a 3/D SG like afflalo or Brandon rush (if he's healthy). I think we have better shooters than people realize, but we could use one more.

    Luigi datome is really, really good. He had a foot problem that caused him to miss the last month, so tonight was his first real nba action of any kind. He's a fantastic shooter with great range. He just couldn't get one to fall tonight.
    I don't want it to happen.....but a Stuckey for Afflalo+some prospect ( or draft pick ) might work.

    But I'd think that you wouldnt want a Guard to be added that would get in the way of KCP in the rotation.

    PG mid range game is has improved so much, not necessarily the shooting % but knowing when or where to take the shots. Reminded me a lot of Kobe in the mid range last night

    Roy has 21 blocks in his first four games of the season. I'd love to see a highlight reel just of his blocks.
    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.

    Not sure if we can make any conclusions 4 games into the season, but here are at least some observations:

    paul is a stud. those sporadic awesome plays George would drop every once in a while are now happening multiple times throughout a game. He is realizing his potential and it is a cool feeling to witness. Don't see a ceiling in sight. I always knew it was possible, but wasn't sure if he'd put the amount of work necessary to get there. Clearly he has.

    lance is a lion.

    So this is what it feels like to be a good team and get ALL the fouls. It is like getting a mushroom in Super Mario.

    Tomorrow I might be saying something else, but I am glad Vogel kept PG in almost the whole 2nd half.

    Hibbert always falls on the floor and it always bothers me because he is so big and nothing good can happen after repeatedly falling on a hardwood floor. He literally falls down on the floor 8 times a game, I have never noticed it with any

    OHHHshit.I was writing this thoughout the game and somehow a 19 point leand turned into 7. in about 2 seconds.

    I'm still somewhat in disbelief that Paul George is becoming a superstar. I'm trying to tell myself to give it more time before I'm convinced, but right now it's looking VERY good.

    4 games in....blow it up!

    Sheesh.

    I do not want Josh Smith starting at the 4. Offensively he's better there, but not defensively.

    And Gordon Hayward is not the answer to anybody's problems.

    If the other shooters make shots, it doesn't matter what Josh Smith shoots from the field. Everyone focuses on the negative with him. It's ridiculous.

    Of course Josh needs to reel himself in a bit, but he's a hell of an asset in every other area of the game.

    Once this team starts getting better chemistry (it's going to take a long time given the lack of shooting), the ceiling is extremely high because of the size and athleticism of the frontline.

    I'll re-evaluate the Smith/Monroe/Drummond trio in a few months, and again after 82 games. To judge it this early in the season is just stupid.

    Just saying, that was the first game this starting 5 has every played together. It's a tad early to be casting final judgement.

    He's always like that. Ask him about Josh Smith shutting down Paul George. He will basically tell you that you don't watch basketball

    All the people criticizing the Pistons need to remember something. THEY'RE PLAYING THE PACERS!!! That's why they don't look good. And the Pacers didn't have 2 of their best 6 players.

    60 wins is the Pacers floor. They'll cruise to that.

    Pistons play the Thunder next on Friday, and they don't have anyone as good as Paul George. Should be a relief.

    OK I guess I'm not going to comment on anything because is always too soon


    Can Lebron win another ring? nope I can't answer that too soon, can Lebron be an all star? nope too soon to answer that too.
