    Good D, good performance all around in the 4th quarter. Really stepped on their throats at the end. Another home game, another blowout.

    So I was thinking after the 3rd quarter that the Cavs had 66 points (22 a quarter avg). In my mind I knew that even if the Cavs got to 88 they weren't going to win, and they didn't even get close to it.

The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    With West struggling a bit and PG going 2-11 from deep, and Lance only getting six - that was a game we would have lost last year.

    But our depth and maturity is starting to pay off.
    Anyone that's not finding his shot doesn't have to force anything. We have so many talented options and we're learning to use them.
    I've been thinking all season that even though they are winning at a great clip, I don't think we've seen their best game.
    But we're looking very nice lately.
    What balance and teamwork.

    The offense of our bench is just dramatically better now.
    Danny showed great confidence. His extra length is apparent when he's in there.
    Scola's rebounding was huge for us. Those extra shots really helped us pull away.
    Nice all-around game by George Hill.
    Five blocks and an efficient nineteen points by Big Roy Hibbert.

    These are the days my friends!

    If there's a gripe to be had about the game - PG seemed to rely on the 3 just a little too much.

    Kudos on the W. Keep it rolling.

    Paul should NEVER be taking 11 3pters in a game, and especially when he's not hitting. Paul, that's when you come in a step or two, or drive to the lane, NOT continue to hoist them up.

    @ScottAgness: Indianaís 25-5 record, which is tied with OKC for the best record in the @NBA, is the teamís best record after 30gms in franchise history.

    The stat that impressed me most was , when the Pacers were having a relative off night overall shooting, we close the game without giving up a FG in the last 10 minutes or so...

    PG:
    5-8 from two
    2-11 from three.

    The whole team:
    29-52 from two
    5-25 from three.

    hmm, maybe that's a clue

    I am ok with PG24....or anyone on the Team...jacking up 3pt shots....BUT ONLY if they are actually hitting them. 2-11 3pt shooting? You'd figure that anyone would stop after 8 3pt Attempts....but just taking that many shots and missing?

    I really think that this Team really relies on taking that many 3pt shots.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    George Hill really had a solid game in his last start at the 1 spot for the Pacers. Solid handles (didn't throw anything into the 5th row), shot the ball from deep well and fought thru 400 picks to really shutdown Irving. I really don't see anyone on our roster who could stay in front of a quick PG like Irving, but people who know a lot more than me about these things tell me we do.

    GH, good luck on your new club.

    And before I say anything else, I really am not disappointed in the way Lance plays the SG, but after today's game, should we consider starting DG at the 2 spot? The only downside I can see is maybe Lance gets a smaller contract.



    Happy New Year.

    I would usually agree with you on this.

    However, this time, I can't think of a single look that was bad. PG usually makes those wide open 3's. The only one I wouldn't consider a good look was when we shot three straight 3's after getting the offensive rebounds - and even that one, was taken with the momentum in our favor. Had hit made it, the crowd would have gone nuts.

    I don't feel like he was forcing the issue, thats when I consider it chucking. Either way, I still prefer an inside-out approach, especially with the height advantage we have over most teams.

    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!

    The reason Hill works so well at PG for us is because Stephenson is at SG.

    it's a response to a fusion of ideas floated around here to clear anything out of way of a guy who has started less than 100 games in his career but is worth somewhere between 9-12 million dollars.

    Trade people, have him run our team, sell hotdogs...

    its annoying.

    My favorite was when someone called him "Magic". Everyone does know that the real Magic won a ring his rookie year at age 20 running Showtime and averaging 18 ppt?

    Today was an example where Lance showed he is a just piece of a great team. No more, no less.

    BTW, we've now sold out 10 of the 16 home games so far. There were only 44 tickets left available for our 17th home game as of this morning (because I sat down and counted them on the Pacers site )

    OK. Just browsed the boxscore and I have another - albeit minor - gripe.

    Roy - 2 boards ?? Really ?? Did he forget he's 7'2" ??

    Varejao. Is freaking GOOD at finding where the rebound is going to go and positioning himself accordingly.

    In fact, whether you like Mike Brown or not, the Cavs' spacing was fantastic both on offense and defense.

    I'd LOVE to see Brown back on the bench as an assistant.

    Also, Lance flies in to snag a rebound coming to Roy away 2-4 times per game, it seems.

    No big deal as long as we rebound strong as a team.
