Stream of consciousness from the @Corner3Ross on tonight’s game.
-Nice standing ovation for George Hill and Gordon Hayward. First game back for GHill since the trade. Most fans must still have NCAA on the mind. GODAWGS! I mean PACERS!
-2nd game of a Back to Back which the Pacers normally lose, but, they lost yesterday to the Raptors and like to trade wins with losses lately so…
-A whole lot of Indiana talent on the court. GHill, Hayward, Teague, Trey Dog, Lyles… Only 2 stayed in state. Indiana schools missed out.
-Aaron Brooks is the first guard off the bench after being out of the rotation most of the year. 2 things with this. Stuckey has really hit a funk and Joe Young really must be that bad at defense to not even get a crack.
-Gordon Hayward has been attacking the rim a lot more this year and it’s paying off. He’s got 10 pts out of the Jazz first 14. On the flip side, Paul George is held scoreless in the 1st…
-And yet, the Pacers lead 28-23 at the end of 1. I’ll take it
-Maybe the Pacers should seriously look into the Hayward Free Agency and not resign PG… nah.. or.. no.. stop it
-Myles Turner still looks hesitant to take a shot but, he’s playing stellar defense. Added a few to the #MylesHighClub already. Did I just hashtag in my head?
-Big Al playing over Christmas. Jeff Withey is one of the only bigs Al can play against and dominate still. Non mobile.
-It’s 39-32 middle of the 2nd and PG+Teague+Turner are 3-15 but the Pacers are winning. What is happening?
-CJ Miles has 13 pts on 4-5 shooting. And he’s a Free Agent this summer. Why? WHY?
-Halftime 51-46 Pacers lead. PG 2 to Hayward’s 18. OKIE DOKIE
-$20 isn’t bad for the Rik Smits mullet shirt.. oh! Back to the game
-Myles post up!
-Joe Johnson has been playing for 16th NBA seasons, 7 time all star. Feels like forever.
-Gordon Hayward is very very very good at this basketball thing. 30 pts through 3. His 11th 30 pt game this year.
-PG scored! Missed his first 9 shots. Phew.
-The Atlanta Hawks are currently losing to the Hornets. If they lose the Pacers are only a game back of 5th in the East playoff race.
-Jeff Teague is learning from Myles Turner with that chase down. JeffHighClub? TeagueLeague?
-Miss It For Biscuit. Still one of the best promotions in the NBA. Got to remember to run by Hardees tomorrow. Pacers up 80-70 end of the 3rd.
-I kind of miss the old school NBA of post up when we could watch Albus Jefferson go to work each night often. Was he ever called Little Al?
-Jeff Teague outplaying George Hill tonight.
-Mark Boyle says Rudy Gobert’s father was Rik Smits backup at Marist College back in the day. #TheMoreYouKnow. Also I’ve just thought about the Dunking Dutchman twice in hour.
-Jazz are making a run. Gobert and Hayward leading the charge. Of course they are. Close this out #GoPacers
-My computer keeps wanting to change Gobert to goobers.
-Jazz coach Quinn Snyder looks like the Bank Manager at the start of The Dark Knight. ‘What do you believe in!’
-PG had a season high when the Pacers played in Utah earlier this year and tonight Gordon Hayward has a career high 38
-PG hitting BIG shots when the team needs it the most even when he’s been playing poorly. Yelling ‘This is my City’ while he does.
107-100 Pacers win. On to Boston!
