With the Pacers playing so well, we can expect more and more people to notice them – and write about them. From time to time, we at 8p9s will highlight Other People’s Words about the Pacers.
Today, Michael Pina of Shaky Ankles breaks down Paul George’s amazing performance in Dallas last night in Analyzing The Anomalous: Paul George vs. Dallas He highlights one of the little things that both Jared and I had noticed and just loved:
Holding onto a seven point lead midway through the first quarter, George attempted three straight pick and rolls with David West…on a single possession. As the shot clock neared zero, neither Pacer panicked and the result was a wide open mid-range jumper, which, of course, West nailed. The patience and chemistry the two shared on this particular play was a symbiotic work of art.
Though I recall a similar fourth quarter possession. Mr. Pina finishes by showing that he expects big things from Our Mr. George:
Two years from now it won’t be like this. Two years from now George won’t be taking any prisoners. Two years from now performances like this might make us cover a yawn.
Big words that I’m sure we all hope prove true. Please click on the link above to read the whole piece, and give Michael a follow @ShakyAnkles.
