"I think so. I hate to even look at it that way. It doesn't make sense but I guess it is (a fact). People want a piece of whatever I have or — I don't know what it is," George said. "That's the reason why I'm positive about it because it's all a made-up story so it's nothing I can do. Whatever story's hot and whatever story is the latest, the media's going to run with it. So, it's me against millions, so there's not much I can do about it." USA Today Sports

George, who hits shots within the restricted area at a 60% rate, made the drives to the paint appear as if he was fighting through an invisible brick wall and his below-the-rim game resulted in five missed layups and one blown tip-in dunk. Saturday night, the Pacers missed 24 of 34 shots within the restricted area and Memphis dominated with the 46-24 edge in points in the paint. "We can score," assured center Roy Hibbert, who finished with four points on five shots and no rebounds. "That's the basic thing. I think we had a lot of contested twos. Guys were trying and playing hard for some reason something was a little off." USA Today Sports

Bynum, who was in practice gear but didn’t participate on Tuesday, admitted there’s some concern for his recent setback. After scoring 15 points and grabbing nine rebounds in exactly 20 minutes of work Saturday night in Detroit, Bynum has experienced significant swelling in his right knee to the point where he underwent an MRI and had it drained Monday afternoon. “This one is a little concerning for me because it caused a lot more fluid,” he said. “I haven’t had that much fluid in there since like the (2010) Boston Finals in L.A.” That was almost four years ago. “It’s not fun,” Bynum added. “It is what it is at this point.” Pacers.com
