Oh, and here comes Bill Spooner back on the court during this timeout at the 5:29 mark. Maybe everyone's catching allergic reax to this gm
Pointed out at press row, lead ref Bill Spooner didn't return to the floor after the first half. Only Scott Wall & Marat Kogut officiating.
Roy Hibbert having one of those "Where Is He?" sort of games. Steps into midrange to knock down only his 2nd FG. He's played 16 mins
They play "Git Yo' Freak On" pretty much every time the Greak Freak scores here. Never "Super Freak," which is kinda disappointing.
Scola hit with a Flagrant 1… seems like he's punished for being 1. behind the play, 2. 34 years old and 3. no ability to jump.
Play currently under review as a flagrant foul.
G. Hill scores then completely loses Michael Carter-Williams on the return trip down the court. MCW goes to rim, fouled by Scola
As efficient as Notre Dame was offensively this season, this should not come as a shock. Still feels like it.
We've still got 4 minutes to go in this first half, and Ersan Ilyasova already has reached his season-high of 22 points
Lavoy Allen left alone on an island as MCW sneaks behind him and strips the ball. That turnover has got to be on his teammate
C.J. Miles vs Everybody in this quarter
Looks like they could use some fabric softener on Bango's mascot costume.
You know it's bad when Vogel has had to use as many timeouts this Q (three) as the field goals his team has made (4)
So much for taking momentum from last night's win in DC.
C.J. Miles checks back into the game.
C.J. Miles literally skips off the court and heads back to the locker room. Damjan Rudež in the game now
Still getting replies for the D West-Messi tweet. Calm down, soccer aficionados. It's OK for one person not to like ur sport. Really, it is.
Vogel finished his thought with: "So when Roy wasn’t playing well, I decided to play Lavoy Allen in his minutes."
Asked Vogel abt his decision to play Allen over Hibbert last nite. Said didn't like the way "we were playing" and needed a "spark."
Last night, Vogel went to Lavoy Allen for a "spark," wouldn't be surprised to see more of him tonight once again in a backup role.
So, Rodney Stuckey and David West will both miss this game.
More Vogel: "We still have a lot of basketball to play and fortunate that we’re still in the mix."
Frank Vogel: "Losing 6 straight in March when you’re on the cusp of the 8th seed... could be a death sentence and hasn’t been so far."
No sé que es peor, mi "nuevo nombre" o que los Wizards nos hayan "primereado" con la 10 de los Pacers para Lio. http://t.co/YHjQQukPCm
I can see it now. Other bball coaches start willing $$ to former players, and have to out-do one another. Who's going to leave the most?
Got to do the ground work before anything
Pacers list Rodney Stuckey (sore left calf) as questionable, Paul George out tonight in Milwaukee. Probably better off letting Stuckey heal.
Great night in DC! We got a win and got to meet the Argentinian national team led by Messi, Agüero and Mascerano ⚽️ http://t.co/ydNt5bWsS6
Me: "Lionel Messi!" West, unconcerned: "Who's Lionel Messi?" Me: "The biggest star in the world!" West, apathetic: "What does he do?"
C.J. Miles on snapping the 6-game losing streak: "It just takes some of that weight off."
Estos pibes tienen mucha onda... http://t.co/AsEwXic1tj
Meanwhile, the Spurs are on track to score 142 tonight...
After gm, Damjan Rudež was smiling big. Not just bc of the win. Was waiting for Scola to finish dressing so he can tag along and meet Messi
Also, it helped that John Wall had five fouls. Had to defend G. Hill cautiously on last play
Hill said he knew once Nene committed to D West to defend a possible pick-&-pop, he would have straight lane to the basket.
George Hill on his GW play: "Just trying to get to my float game, my right hand layup quick."
Boston loses at home to Miami but remains in 8th in the East with tiebreaker on the Pacers. 9. Pacers (31-40) 10. Nets (30-40) 11. Hornets
George Hill scores 29 points, including 12 in the 4th Q and the game winning finger roll. That's what you call Capitol Hill, y'all.
George Hill has gone from Most Misunderstood Pacer to Most Valuable Pacer.
Knew that play was coming from a mile away … and still, George Hill scores to end the losing streak. 103-101 in DC.
That George Hill!
Wall drains the 3 around a Gortat screen that G. Hill got caught in. All tied up at 101 with 11.2 seconds remaining
That John Wall.
Pacers have so much trouble getting the ball in at times like this. West was open for the pass.
If you watch Solomon Hill, he's as much a coach on the floor as much as anyone. Not bad for a second year player.
George Hill take over.
G. Hill with the steal and fast break. Great PG matchup between Hill and Wall right now
John Wall with 10 points in the first five minutes of the 4th Q
Good to see Rasual Butler playing for DC. Told me earlier this year he hopes to play another yr or 2. Then, wants to get into broadcasting.
John Wall now taking over
