Silence filled the Indiana Pacers' locker room, broken only by the rush of news reporters ready to poke and prod at players crushed by an 11-point Game 5 loss. Off to the side sat George Hill. The point guard stared straight ahead, frozen in his own thoughts: his one point in the 90-79 loss to the Miami Heat, his four missed field goals, his three turnovers. Hill was asked, simply, what happened. "It's nothing they did," he said slowly. "It was what I did to myself. I wasn't aggressive. I feel like I let the team down, you know? I've got to play better."

When Indiana Pacers guard George Hill knocked down four big free throws in the final 50 seconds of the Pacers’ Eastern Conference-evening Game 2 win Friday night, one of George’s biggest fans was glued to a TV set some 1,000 miles away. “I watched the whole game,” San Antonio Spurs point guard and Hill’s former teammate Tony Parker said following Saturday morning’s shootaround in preparation for tonight’s Game 3 of the Western Conference finals (9 p.m. ET, ESPN). “We’ve been texting the whole playoffs. I always follow George. He’s like my little brother, so I always text him.” NBA.com

Chris Tomasson: Here's LeBron's full response to George Hill saying that only God is scarier than him. "I'm nowhere near close,'' James said. "I made two mistakes tonight. That hurt our team. And that hurt more than anything. Let my teammates down. They expect me to make plays down the stretch, and I had the ball with the opportunity to make a couple of plays and I came up short. That burns. But the best thing about it is this isn't college. It's not one loss and you're done. I have another opportunity to get better in Game 3, and if I'm put in that position again, to be able to learn from it.'' Sulia

Before that, he sat at his locker and tried to expound upon his comment, which received negative fan responses on Twitter; local sports-talk radio shows; and in emails sent to The Indianapolis Star. One fan tweeted: “I’ll be real sure to boo the (crap) out of you now on.” “I’m not saying you can’t be somebody’s fan,” said Hill, an Indianapolis native who went to Broad Ripple High School and IUPUI. “I was a Michael Jordan fan growing up, but when I did go to the games, I always rooted for my hometown team. “You root for who you want to root for, but I know one day that we’re going to get it like it used to be at Market Square Arena. That’s my dream, that’s my goal from when I first got here, to help bring fans back. That’s all I’m trying to do.” Indianapolis Star
