    This is the payment for watching the bickering, feuding, selfish Pacers of not too long ago. Or the bad basketball preached by Jim O'Brien. The empty seats... the catcalls... the boos for our own team...

    This version of the Pacers look like they are on the verge of something special... and all of that makes it even sweeter.
    I was hoping it would pay off. Long live Travis Diener.

    I had something going on tonight and couldn't watch this game. I'm glad to hear Lance is OK. This game looks like a typical win for a great team against an inferior opponent. We allowed them to hang around in the first half before putting a chokehold on them in the third quarter.

    I can't wait to watch tomorrow night. If we go into Brooklyn and pull a win off, then the national media will really be buzzing.

    Really the Pacers looked like they decided in the 2nd qtr that they weren't going to lose to the Dinos. And then erased (most of) the deficit in the 2nd qtr and used that as a springboard in the 3rd qtr...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Others have already said it. We basically played bad yet won fairly decisively. Impressive. We just have so many talented players now that when you combine it with our amazing defense, we are just scary good right now.

    I didn't get to see much of the game, mostly just the second quarter, but it pleased me to see Orlando be the spark off the bench that set the come back in motion.

    Also, it was nice to have George Hill remind me tonight why he's the starting PG; he was great.

    OT ended and they lost.
    Despite that, no Net played more minutes than Paul George. They seem to be taking their time to get in shape, either that or they were prioritising tomorrow's game. Hopefully George Hill will be fresh, and Lance will be healthy, enough to go. Going forward, I wonder if a European soccer style of rotation, resting certain starters in certain games, will help keep the team fresh. Popovich had rested his stars altogether before but I think the Indy bench is deep enough to cover for 1 starter at a time in selected games to keep them fresh for the playoffs. There are short term benefits as well as a fresh reserve might be more productive than a tired starter.

    I feel bad for DJ Augustine. And probably all of the Toronto players if that's how their coach treats the ends of somewhat close games.

    I hate correcting Count, but.........16-22 is still 16 made shots, since the cheapest one is 2 pts, the 30 points can't be that right (providing of course he did not include ft's in there)

    I know there's no way to make it happen and we've already got the position filled, but man I'd love Amir Johnson as our backup 4. I love that dude.

    We are much younger than the spurs, I think rest isn't too much an issue when your stars are 23 years old man. And we keep playing like this they will be sitting out the last few games anyway

    On a back to back against the Bulls, we played very well in the 4th quarter. I would say we have the advantage at least on that note against an older Brooklyn team. They did rest some of their starters, but against this Pacer team it may not matter. The one advantage Brooklyn has over Toronto is Lopez and the fact their old dogs are not going to try to go through Hibbert as much as shoot from the perimeter. I think it will be tough to beat them.

    He is also shooting 66.7% in Catch and Shoot situations. He is attempting 3.6 Catch and Shoot FGA per Game and making 2.4 of them. That should make Lance and PG very happy.

    Speaking of Lance, he has already scored 42 points in Catch and Shoot situations. The only players that have scored more points in those situations so far are Klay Thompson and Kyle Korver. JJ Redick has 42 points as well but Lance beats him a lot in Catch and Shoot eFG% (Lance is at 77.8% while Redick is at 58.3%)

    See, that surprises me. Catch and shoot is one of those things I think I'm watching for, and I would have sworn we were hesitating too much after getting the ball and not putting it up.

    Maybe my definition is different from the tracking stats definition, but I'll have to watch Scola and Lance more specifically in those situations.

    I really don't see Scola hesitating a lot on those shots. On the contrary, he seems absolutely confident and I know that he is shooting it the moment that he gets the ball in his spots.

    I thought the B&G, especially Paul, looked like a 5-0 team playing a bad team in the first quarter. We can beat these guys by just showing up and playing. Good for Toronto and Rudy Gay for taking advantage of that lack of focus.

    But it looked like the Pacers got their act together and settled themselves down. A nice example of just how well the Heat were playing last season. Nice professional effort.

    Interesting bit of officiating last night. I've see guys miss calls before and be out of position before, but this was the first time I've seen a guy just not paying attention to the game. David Guthrie had one short stretch where he just stop watching the game. When guys went down he just kinda shook his head and said that had to be a foul and called it. Not a clue what actually happened. It was strange. Normally NBA officials are pretty focused.
