Watchin this bad boys 30 for 30
Happy Easter Jesus has risen
This week, where literally nothing went right, can’t end soon enough……
Just for the record, contrary to some retired scribes, West didn't say there's no communication among players. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Jeff Teague might be second-best player to come out of Pike HS. You guys didn't see me play, so how do you know if I'm wrong or not?
Hawks take Game 1, 101-93. Jeff Teague with a game-high 28pts. Paul George had 24. Pacers have two days to figure it out.
Gonna be interesting on Tuesday to see what Vogel comes up with. New starting lineup? Different rotation? Drastic circumstance calls for...
Roy's not even trying
Korver just blocked Hibbert again.
Any NBA media representative that casts a ballot for Hibbert as DPOY should have his/her credentials revoked in perpetuity.
The Bank is emptying at a fairly rapid clip now. Looks like if you want to beat traffic, you should stay till the end.
You gotta be kidding me. Now there's a stream starting to the exits… with 5:54 remaining… in a playoff game.
Boos mounting in Bankers Life. Never seen anything like this in a home playoff game that I recall.
Can't remember the last time a home team was booed in Game 1 of the playoffs.
Down 18, Vogel brings Watson in for Mahinmi. Small ball it is.
Pacers going small. Watson for Mahinmi.
Some very bad possessions continuing: PG goes inside because ya know, nobody else is moving. Then D West blows wide open J (no pass poss)
Atlanta ranked 28th in the NBA in rebounding during the season. But it's outrebounding the Pacers 36-31.
Hawks outscored the Pacers by 14 points in the third, and are on top, 80-66. Indy’s Jeff Teague with 14 of his 24 in the 3Q.
Now Rasual Butler, the oldest member of the team, with his arm around Stephenson trying to provide support. Great teammate Butler is.
Hard to believe an offensive set that has 4 players standing and one player running the baseline didn't produce a shot.
Andrew Bynum in the ear of Roy Hibbert on the bench, trying to get him going and pointing specific things out.
Vogel on Teague (22pts): “The whole defensive game plan is keeping him out of the paint. It’s the toughest challenge we’re going to have.”
This looks like a game where Vogel might want to get a technical foul.
Paul George (left quad contusion) at the scorer’s table to check back in.
George has left quad contusion, will return
Pacers outscored 19-8 in the third; the last nine coming from the Hawks, who lead 69-58. 5:05 3Q.
PG has left quad contusion, will return.
And, right after PG leaves, West picks up fourth foul.
Now Paul George is back in the locker room with asst. trainer Carl Eaton.
Something is ailing PG. Has walked over to trainer twice, now heads to locker room as Turner checks in.
And I was right.
Paul George laying on the baseline having his left knee rubbed down by Pacers trainer Josh Corbeil.
Antic and West had to be separated. Are there Macedonian curse words?
I predict a double technical.
This just isn't going to be a series for Hibbert. Bad matchups. But his confidence is bad enough already. You sit him, and then what?
Kudos to everyone being honored by the Indiana Sports Writers and Broadcasters tonight. Wish I could be there. Duty called.
Hard to believe how many NBA players fail to go up straight on their shot -- even free throws! Drifting, falling back ... crazy.
Paul George was "slaving for FTs" at the end of the regular season, now he's getting rewarded with 8 and counting here in Game 1
Having had a layup blocked by Korver, Hibbert decides to become Korver and launches a 3.
Hibbert corner 3 turns out just as you would imagine it to
Paul George active on the defensive end with three steals already. His last one leads to a clear-path call
I wonder if the referees will want to review my story tonight.
George Hill took a moment to get off the floor, but walks back to the timeout huddle on his own accord.
G. Hill should've went up with that. He was right at the rim.
Before checking in, G. Hill tells Stephenson to not worry about the fouls. Just play. Lance is checking back in with 2 personal fouls
I say "quietly" about Turner's start because Lance's six straight points took all the shine.
Luis Scola having a tough night from the floor. David West checking back in.
