Indiana Pacers Getting Inside 2009-11-20


Indiana Pacers Getting Inside 2009-11-20It's no secret that the Pacers are a running team. Coach Jim O'Brien wants his team to push the ball and take open 3-pointers.

That type of style may be entertaining and help put fans in the stands, but in order to win games, they need a low-post presence.

The Pacers don't need to go out and try to acquire that player, however -- he's already on the roster.

Second-year center Roy Hibbert has had five double-doubles and has scored in double figures in seven straight games this season.

The problem Hibbert faces is that his teammates don't always look to feed him the ball. It's as if the Pacers are playing four-on-five at times because they are reluctant to feed him the ball.

Hibbert has shown he can be effective when given the opportunity. He spent the summer with the team's assistant coaches working on his low-post offensive moves. Foul trouble can't be used as an excuse, either, because he's averaging less than four fouls a game.

It's time for the Pacers to allow Hibbert to show what he can do on a regular basis.

KNICKS 110, PACERS 103: The Pacers, who were on a five-game winning streak, blew a 19-point first-half lead by shooting 25 percent from the field in the fourth quarter. All-Star forward Danny Granger attempted only four shots and scored three points in the second half after scoring 30 in the first half.
