Wanted to see how you guys felt about Coach Frank sticking his long, athletic rookie Paul George on Derrick Rose, and leaving DC on the offensively challenged Keith Bogans. Makes a lot of sense to me, as Rose is the Bulls primary ballhandler. This is not necessarily a knock of DC, but I think George, whose energy would be best spent on the defensive end, gives the Pacers the best chance at slowing down the Bulls' offense. Same theory applies for when we bring Rush off the bench, though I think A.J could do a decent job on the likely MVP.
Not saying we will win the series or even a game for that matter, but I think this gives us the best chance to win. I have no clue how we are going to stop Boozer from averaging a 25-13 in the series. We just have no answer for him. Nevertheless, it will be nice to see the Blue & Gold where they belong, competing in the playoffs. Go Pacers!
