    Default Postgame vs Lakers

    Fun Fact of the Day: The Pacers have never in their history lost a game in which Evan Turner has played.

    Good times are ahead, indeed.

    The Villain did exactly what we needed him to do tonight. Excellent debut.

    PG set the tone when he needed to. He was playing like ****, then turned up the defensive intensity, got some easy buckets, and we cruised from there.

    CJ Watson shot really well tonight. Hopefully it is him busting out of his funk.

    That made me not miss Danny. Not one bit.

    Now if ET will just do that consistently.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    Only able to listen to the game, and Slick did mention that Turner was "working on the defensive end"... How did he look individually and as part of the team??

    Though I will say it wasn't entirely peaches and cream with Turner as he had a couple of matador defensive possessions. Hopefully our culture and coaching staff can get rid of some of his bad defensive habits. Like pressuring up on the ball at around 25 feet just to get blown by. His offense though wow what a boost we needed for that unit. With him taking more of the offensive focus, you could tell it really helped some of the other bench players. CJ got it going tonight and it was nice to see, Scola still hasn't found his shot but he wasn't be asked to make plays he isn't capable of tonight he got all good looks that if he keeps getting he should come around sooner than later. Mahinmi what has gotten into you if nothing else the Bynum signing was great for the team because it has really elevated his game. Finally a 2nd unit that looked good tonight though and it was really refreshing.

    I worked late tonight and just missed the game. Were the rotations about the same or did Vogel makes some changes tonight?
    Fast paced game I guess, 101 shots is a lot of us.

    Honetly? A little lost.

    The effort was there, but he clearly has lacked coaching in that department. It was more positional issues, not speed issues that I saw.

    Was really nice to see us have a huge 3rd quarter too. That was a staple of ours in our amazing start to the season and had kind of become less of a staple as the season has gone on. Was really nice to see us up the ante and play absolutely smothering D in the 3rd tonight though.

    Ehhh...about as expected. Not very good. The effort was there, but his tendency to ball watch bit him once on a three. He's got a pretty slow first step which isn't ideal against quicker defenders. He wasn't dreadful by any means, but I don't really think he has the tools to be a great wing defender.

    They were the same. Lance first out; Turner first in. Hibbert came out a minute or so later, but I think that was foul related.

    same rotations, though Turner got more minutes than Danny usually did (26)

    I think that had to do more with the second half blowout than anything else...

    About how you'd expect from a player in a new defensive system after playing in PHI half the season. If he can cut down on his ball watching, he should be fine. Not great, but good enough.

    Have to be happy with how Evan Turner played tonight. Offensively, he looks to be what this team needed. A guy who can create for himself. Off the bench we didn't have that before the trade. Even with Lance, his jumper isn't consistent enough and relies so much on attacking the rim. Turner just brings a completely new aspect to the bench. Its pretty clear that no bench should give him much trouble. He's gonna get his. I don't want to say he was selfish out there, as he played within the offense. But I liked that he took 12 shots. He is the best player off the bench. We brought him here to score. And it wasn't any of that dribble for 20 seconds and take a jumper. It was a quick dribble with a move and then a shot. I see the comparisons to Lance, but I think they are two very different players. Turner is much more polished in scoring from mid range. A very nice addition to the bench.

    Defensively he absolutely needs work. Granger could stay in front of his man better than Turner did tonight. Hopefully this is something Dan Burke can correct. We don't need Turner to be a lock down defender. Just a competent one. I don't see why he can't be. Overall, very solid performance from Turner. Hopefully he can play this way against the Heat too.

    This game had that typical Pacers feel to it, lazy first half, knock out third quarter led by PG. The intensity PG brought after that time out in the third, thats why people look at him and say, MVP Candidate. He shut the Lakers down on defense and just owned the quarter on offense. He took a game where he wasn't playing well to one where I don't even mind the 6-18 shooting because I know what he did in the third quarter.

    I mentioned this in the game thread, but I think it's worth repeating. ET more than a few times over-pursued his man and allowed the person he was defending a good angle to the basket. I suspect some of that is him being anxious, but historically he hasn't been the greatest defender. I'm hoping that his defense improves once he gets the system down. His offense is going to be a welcome addition to the bench.
    Never half-a** two things. Whole-a** one thing.

    Evan was nice. He has slow feet by NBA standards. That seemed to give him some issues defensively, but he did do a nice job of funneling his man to the help.

    Offensively his feet seemed quicker. Probably knowing where he is going make it so. I really liked him as a natural scorer. Nice skill level, unselfish when he needed to be, took his shots that were available, good post game. He really looked like a missing piece when he got the ball in the iso at the end of the quarter. His dancing with the ball had more purpose to it than Paul or Lance. Got to the middle of the defense an made a nice easy pass. If nothing else, we will be liking him for that. It was a much better 1-4 iso than the Pacers have had all season. Expect to see more of it.

    Decent game by Turner, but he is terrible defensively. If he lets guys like Jodie Meeks or Bazemore make him look like a turn-style, he is gonna have world of trouble with the elite guards. Constantly over pursued the 3 pt line and his man just went on buy with a good angle. Like what I saw offensively though.
