The numbers speak for themselves.
24-of-81 from the floor (30%)
Danny Granger, Darren Collison, and Roy Hibbert combine for 13 points on 3-for-30 shooting
All of this against a team that entered the game 10-23 on their home floor and allowing almost 111 points per 100 possessions – 26th in the league.
Tips of the cap should be given to Kevin Love for his double double streak, and Tyler Hansbrough for his 21 and 10.
It is quite simply impossible to even think about this type of performance without going far beyond basketball. It as if Alex Yovanovich’s piece earlier today (Soft) was ridiculously optimistic. This is something that I could not even see coming.
Forget the playoffs. Forget the youth. Something is profoundly broken here. When speaking to Alex after the game, we were reaching far back into our pre-Reggie memories to try to come up with a comparable debacle. There have been bigger final margins, but man, I can’t think of bigger embarrassments at the moment.
I have plenty of questions.
Why have they collapsed so badly? What is happening in the locker room? What is wrong with Danny Granger? What is wrong with Darren Collison? Is Frank Vogel (or any coach) equipped to handle this? When will the next win come?
As for answers…
I got nothin’.
