I'm not allowed to have my own opinion so I got removed apparently lol.

Anyways, I don't think Granger is going to ruin our momentum or anything. He's still our best scorer and a reliable defender(or he was at least before his injury). We might struggle for our first couple of games but I fully expect us to be ready to go by the playoffs.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

well, all in all- i am still happy with how the team has been playing. to be near 10 games over .500 is pretty amazing as far as i'm concerned.
there will be disappointing moments like last night but i think when granger returns, we can put lance in the bench role to give us some greater stability there will be a nice addition.

Yup we have no reason to complain about our record. It's funny looking back at our posts after the first couple of games to see how much we've improved.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

If we win tonight, we get to 25 wins. It will be the halfway point of the season and halfway to a goal of 50 wins. And yes I stole that from the telecast.

Well we got there.

Saw most of the game. Was a thing of beauty to see George dominate on offense, and make James Harden his bitch on defense.

MIP and all defensive team this year if he were more popular.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

Just bought this beauty of a shirt on eBay yesterday. I will now have the perfect shirt to wear for when we play New York.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

So what's the optimism level around these parts? You guys, along with New York seem like Miami's only real obstacles in the east at this point. I haven't seen anyone throw out championship hopes on here so I'm curious.

It wouldn't be impossible for this team to beat Miami with a healthy and rested Granger I don't think. George Hill could be the difference in that series.

That shirt is awesome.

As far as championship hopes, I think we're pretty excited for the Playoffs, but we have to get through the Bulls, Heat and Knicks. Our offense is just the only thing I get worried about in a 7 game series. If we can pick up the 2nd seed and play Miami in the Conference Finals that would obviously be ideal.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

I think our offense will at least get to a mediocre level whenever Granger returns and gets his shot back. That's not a great expectation, but it's better than being one of the worst offenses in the league. Theoretically this team has the pieces to make a deep run. I'd say a championship is a very long shot, but it's possible. I just wish we could rely on our bench for anything. They suck on both ends of the court.

When we get Granger back to 30+ mins a game that will significantly relieve guys like Gerald Green. Lance moving to the bench can potentially provide a spark considering he plays pretty hard. He can also create his shot at times so that will help him in that group, Chris, Quin, and Austin say that Stephenson is a good passer as well, I don't see it but they watch more than I do. If Vogel wants to do it, Granger can also take some minutes away from Hansbrough at the 4 spot, and that could improve our defense.

It will be helpful reducing minutes for Green unless he's hot, but I don't think Lance will be much of a spark off the bench. Granted he's been playing with the starters, but he's averaging 8 ppg this year and his defense is significantly worse than his offense. I like his game quite a bit, but he doesn't give me that "spark" kind of vibe. I suppose it will be helpful having two players off the bench who can create their own shot, rather than one. Lance is a pretty good passer for a 2 guard. For a PG, he's probably right on par with George Hill in the passing department, maybe even better. I've seen him make difficult bullet and bounce passes, and he seems pretty good at moving the ball around the floor. He's just not the kind of guy you'll get a hockey assist from because his game is still predominantly 1-on-1.

As for playing Obie-ball, I definitely wouldn't mind it in stretches. We could really bother teams by running a Hill-Green-George-Granger-Mahinmi kind of lineup because we'll have size advantages at every position except the 4.
