The State Farm starting 5, although gifted passers, are really going to struggle with rim protection.
Pacers sticking with the formula. Sluggish start and double figure deficit in first quarter. The Theorem less dependable on the road though.
The Thunder are looking every bit as dangerous as they are billed to be. Pacers bench needs to show up big.
Guys, I'm not the only one who sees a little of Lance (facially) in Anthony Morrow, right?
Westbrook scores in traffic, does his "I'm losing my mind" thing by flexing and screaming. Vogel gestures @ him towards a ref. No response
Roy Hibbert making sure he's not anointed as the fast break outlet passer next time.
Hibbert needs to get the ball much lower on the block, closer to the hoop. Got it far out against Kanter, threw up an airball.
Solo Hill is no pip squeak. Pretty telling that Westbrook could take contact from him in air & still continue w/ forward motion to the rim
Excellent crash by Hibbert to be there after Hill got his stuff blocked at the rim. Started beyond arc, but made his way where he should be
It took all of 21 seconds for Russell Westbrook to go flying for a loose ball to cause a TO. No wonder there's so many def plays in that vid
Pacers have won 6/7 in Feb., look to take adv. of fourth straight opponent w/o star. Pelicans (AD), 76ers (MCW), Warriors (Curry), OKC (KD).
Pacers at OKC in 10 minutes. With a win, Frank Vogel becomes the winningest coach in NBA franchise history, topping Larry Brown (190).
Kevin Durant walks through the hallway. Can you see him? He's the one in the subtle red. http://t.co/fD5amlUZ2P
Quote of the week. “Don’t rule out working with your hands. It does not preclude using your head.” - Andy Rooney
If Butler wasn't playing tomorrow night, I would be there in a second. Had a chance to meet Mark Johnson many years ago from that team.
Since Westbrook is an attacker not so much like a Thompson or Korver, expect to see S. Hill + G. Hil split time (in that order, is my guess)
Vogel: "(OKC) puts the ball in Westbrook’s hands more. He’s capable of making all the plays they need to get wins." Thunder are 7-1 in Feb
The reason you saw George Hill on Klay Thompson so much on Sun is bc G. Hill's best "chase defender." But tonite, its more abt containment
Let's get better today
Schools should do all they can to prevent students from storming the court. Too much potential for injury. Fans belong in the stands.
I just located a Waffle House!!!
Rodney Stuckey suddenly a popular figure following Pacers practice today. http://t.co/loXtIgNFu1
... because Keady knew the game was going to be remembered more for Knight throwing the chair than his team winning the game.
First game Knight didn't wear a sports coat and tie. Gene Keady's postgame emphasis: "the story of this game is that Purdue won" (cont)
Proud to say I was at the "chair throw" game 30 yrs ago. You never want to miss historic moments. It was a classic for many reasons (cont)
Not a slight against Evansville, Indiana State, Ball State or IUPUI. But Valparaiso and IPFW have better chances in conference tourneys.
If Valparaiso and IPFW win their conference tournaments, could be an amazing year for Indiana in NCAAs. As many as six could get in.
Respect yourself and others will too
"He’s eager just 2 b a part of it and get back out there," West said. "I’m behind him, I’m going to support him. I just want him 2 b safe."
Asked about his teammate Paul George's comments over All-Star weekend on returning soon, David West smiled & said: "He's crazy."
Seems Rodney Stuckey is like Lady Gaga. More talented than we suspected.
And yes, the Theorem held up again. Pacers down 12 after 1st quarter, came back to win. When will teams learn not to go 10 or more early?
Rodney Stuckey's middle name is Norvell. He hasn't been playing like a Norvell lately, has he?
Man I needed that nap, but that means not a lot sleep tonight smh
Vogel on Curry's absence: "It certainly changes things" with not having to defend him but said GSW still had enough weapons.
After Rodney Stuckey appeared to tweak his ankle early, Vogel said he read his body language and it said: "don't you dare take me out."
