    I'm happy that Roy is focusing on defense, but only 5 shots with Tyson Chandler out is not enough. They were forcing us into outside shots, but I feel like we need to establish the post better.

    There is no doubt. Andrea Bargnani has become an intimidating defensive force.

    first sentence in espn's article on the recap of the game...see if you can tell me what is wrong with it..."NEW YORK -- Paul George made three throws to tie it with 5.2 seconds left in regulation, then scored nine of his season-high 35 points in overtime as the Indiana Pacers pulled out a 103-96 victory Wednesday night over the New York Knicks, who dropped their sixth straight at home."

    I agree, Vogel needs to call more plays for him early in the game. Our nights go a lot easier when Roy gets involved in the offense.

    To be honest, Bargnani is a good post defender. It's the only thing that he can do well defensively.

    That said, we should get the ball to Hibbert a lot more than we did. We should also attack the rim more than we did tonight.
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

    Wow. Paul George is amazing. Incredible late in that game.

    Only thing. Can Hill and Paul George go shoot 2000 free throws a day? They're the two best shooters on the team. They should shoot near 90% from the line. Hill was 5 of 8 and PG was 3-6 until he hit 9 straight late in the game. Jesus. Make your free throws. Hill missed two in a row then hit a three. How is that possible?
    Find me on the internets @mattiecolin

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    Kevin Durant? KD is a lot of things, but superathletic is not one of them.

    Ugly win. Lance has got to get a check on his emotions. And what is with these calls for Roy to shoot a three. Thats the second one this year.

    They weren't the normal play. Both came out of a broken play.

    Was the first one. I seem to recall Lance just passing it to him. I might be wrong. And seriously we need a second and third option before Hibbert is shooting threes. Although to be fair he can apparently hit them so who knows.

    The clock was running down on that play and Lance was pressured and didn't have anyone else to pass to. We do have second and third options but sometimes the other team has scouted well and takes away those options.

    Man what an ugly win, I'm glad PG got it together and took over that game. Tough road game against a desperate team. But this win mean more for the Pacers, couldn't go on a 2 game losing streak after the 9-0 start.

    Couple of things:
    1. Joey Crawford is a turd. He calls fouls that don't even happen, he called Lance for a foul on Melo when he was pressuring him on the Pacers base line after a rebound. Lance got up into him and Melo started swing his elbows high and Lance gets called for the foul even though he never touched him. Its not a foul, I can't believe that guy is allowed to make it up as he goes along. Lance could have easily been pressuring to try and force an 8sec violation. It makes no sense, and the TV crew on FSI couldn't even really explain it.

    2. Lance Stephenson is officially on the bad apple list for the officials. I mean this guy gets T'd up for some of the most BS stuff out there. He gets fouls for some of whackiest sequences. I think they have a secret message board and they must talk him up game to game about how does this and that, because they dont' seem to give him any respect on either side of the ball.

    3. Ugly habits are revealing themselves. Pacers love to shoot the 3 early in the game, and the its the main reason for these slow starts. tonights game was about to get into blow territory again in the 1st, because of the early 3's. They need to force the post game early in the game. Force the opponent to stop it or force him into foul trouble.

    Also this team is not very good in transition. They had a handful of fasbreak opportunities that went no where.

    4. Playing for foul calls? PG has to stop *****ing a the refs every time he doesn't get a call, and it seems like alot of our guys are not finishing thru contact.

    Love my team but I just don't think that Knicks team was good enough to make us claw our way back for the first 47 minutes.
    You can't get champagne from a garden hose.

    The Knicks would have a lot more than 3 wins atm if they played as hard as they did vs the Pacers.
    "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."

    Even though Bargnani is a laughingstock, I was still very uncomfortable with Hibbert guarding him. A lot of the Knicks' open looks came from this mismatch. I wonder why Vogel left him on Bargnani, as I would've expected West to be in that situation.

    Also, I know the defense is statistically better this year, but it seems Pacers are allowing more open three-point shots.

    I was wondering about this. Because yes I have thought the same thing about the wide open looks.

    I don't get this. The game was in New York. They always put the location of where the story was at the very beginning. They actually started the article with Pacers material.
