    Lamarcus Aldridge not only played a great game of basketball last night, he also put on a performance of the traditional holiday favorite, The Nutcracker.

    I don't think I've ever wanted a shot to go down more than PG's after the steal that would have cut it to 1.

    I wish he would of taken more time to adjust. He shot it to fast. He was wide open with no one even remotely close.

    PG has been getting seriously hyped all season by the media. Imagine if he makes that and they win. The hype would of been off the charts.

    BTW, to those wondering if he can keep up this type of shooting, I think he can. He has always had great form on his jumper. His problem has always been his footwork and squaring up. Watch his feet when he is shooting right now. He is lining them up almost perfectly and even squaring up on those midrange curls.

    One was a drive that got blocked by Lopez, Hibbert got the put back. The other was a wide open 3 he just didn't knock down. I was fine with Hill shooting those shots. Don't remember the other two you mention. West was tired, I don't really trust hibbert with the ball late in games, Orlando Johnson is like a pistol compared to our other 4 cannons, and PG can't do everything by himself.
    It was pretty cool that George Hill passed up the three to get it to PG in the corner as he was hot. But he really should have taken the open shot.

    I agree. I would have liked to have seen Hill just pop it.

    But he should have been wearing a cup in THIS game.

    Well, unless he missed it. Then there would have been calls for his head on a pike at the entrance to the Fieldhouse as a traitor to the hot hand.

    That would have had me running around the sitting room like a crazy person. Very similar to what I was doing when Reg pulled the 8p9s.

    When he shot it I knew, if it went in, everyone in my apartment building would instantly hate me because I was going to go absolutely nuts.

    The impressive shot and the one that should have propelled us ahead was the one that made it 98-96 with Matthews draped on him and the shot clock winding down. If Lillard had missed his PnR three on that trip we would have won, but alas he was pure.

    Loss Summary:

    Indiana failed to do what it's good at .... play suffocating defense.
    Lance was never the same since that aborted triple double days ago. Geeze it looks like he's playing grudge against Vogel.

    that wasn't that great a game from him, he had 7-8 turnovers too.

    He had a couple of questionable fouls called on him, then a couple of questionable travel calls. Then when Ian and Roy dropped a couple of easy dimes, he just got more and more frustrated. Not an excuse, but it didn't come out of nowhere.

    Aldrige pretty much confirmed what I already thought. He's probably the most underrated, under appreciated star in the league.
    Dude is a stud now...but he was a bit slow to develop. I think he just got physically stronger and it helped his game a ton. Lillard is a better player than Chris Paul.

    I think everyone agrees Lance needs to find that sweet spot of being aggressive and just shooting/driving, or passing/creating for others. When he figures out how to blend the two together the game will become easier for him. He has the ball in his hand a lot more this season, so it is learning curve, similar to how PG had to learn how not split double teams last year, with the ball more in his hands. I'm excited to see how he develops as it might take him more time, since he is less patient and more emotional than PG currently.
