    For sure, Vogel has turned himself into a top 5 coach in this league in my opinion. I know he probably won't win it because it will go to the team that was supposed to be bad and weren't, but he should be a serious contender for Coach of the Year because his 2nd half adjustments (though probably not all his doing the players also just know to step up the defensive intensity come 2nd half) have been phenomenal. Through Vogel's entire tenure with the Pacers we have routinely been one of if not the best 3rd quarter team in the league. Credit for this goes to the players as well because when our team wants to up the intensity on D which they do every 2nd half we just become impossible to score on, but I love me some Frank Vogel.

    One of the coolest things about last night, the entire lower bowl was standing almost the whole 4th quarter. On a Wednesday. In November.

    Everything points to a loss on Saturday night in Brooklyn. 4th game in 5 nights, on the road against a really good team. It's going to be tough. But with this team, you'd be crazy to count them out.

    Still my only complaint is Scola needs more touches during those second quarter bench runs. I think that would put a stop to these droughts.

    I agree, I don't understand how they don't make it their priority specially when Gibson or somebody that can't stop him is guarding him, I like Sloan and OJ but damn those guys don't want to pass the f**** ball, Scola was by himself with Deng few times and this guys decide to take a fade way 3 instead of feeding Scola.

    Probably. We need to run some more PnR for him.

    Watson is better that DJ and Sloan is better than DJ. All three guards are better than DJ. And then you add Scola
    and this bench is so much better than last year it is hard to fathom the improvement. The offense, production wise is much better because the starting five are the same and the bench is greatly improved.

    I was really happy with CJ Watson's activity on defense. Did as well as could be expected chasing guys around screens, was good about denying passes to his man off-ball, just really nice to see. He might be better at that than George Hill.

    I'm as big of a George Hill fan as anyone, but right now it doesn't look like there is much drop off when you replace him with CJ in the starting lineup.

    I don't know how anyone else feels, but I haven't found myself disappointed in Scola's defense at all this season.

    Sure there has been a time or 2 where he has gotten beat, but because of how good everyone else is defensively, he seems to fit in. The effort, intensity, and heart from Scola is just fun to watch.

    Damn, it feels good to finally have a team like this.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    Hmmm, I dunno, I think there is still a pretty big difference. CJ is obviously still very good, but I think Hill gives us a little bit more athleticism, plus he's just more familiar with the other 4 guys. Regardless, picking up CJ was absolutely the correct move.

    One thing about Sloan that I notice that either drives me nuts or ( I guess ) helps ( when it comes to "making that extra pass" ) is that I noticed that he often looks for the open man....even when he has a wide open shot to the basket. I noticed that when Sloan had a open look....pump faked it, drove to the basket then passed it out to PG24 ( who wasn't entirely open ) and couldn't take the shot. I guess, sometimes I can see passing the ball when needed....but I don't mind if he takes an open shot if he has it.
    Low man on the totem pole makes sure that the team's star gets the ball. He doesn't want any core players thinking he's gonna take their shots.

    I'm not saying it's right, but journeyman habits die hard.
    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!

    Do we need more athleticism at the point, though?

    I'm just enjoying that CJ seems to me to be quicker. Quicker on D, quicker at making decisions, quicker pushing the ball up the floor to set up the offense.

    I just think CJ is doing exactly what he's supposed to do. He's always been a fantastic stop gap starter. He doesn't get in the way, he runs the offense and he stays out of the way. Is Watson ever going to win us a game like Hill helped do in New Orleans though? No he's not and to me that's why Hill is better.
