Many positive headlines after last night's game! Darren Collison played real well, while attacking and looking to score (which he seems to be able to do at will sometimes). Danny Granger drove to the basket for EASY buckets?! He should really limit himself to outside shots until he makes at least 5 fg's inside the paint or right outside the paint. I think this would much such a positive impact in his game. Roy Hibbert looked pretty strong down low....oh yeah, and Paul George had a huge impact on the game!....
I loved the spark this guy provided, but did you see how many deflections this young rook had?? Even when he wasn't getting steals (which he was about every 3 minutes he played), his hands are so active and have to frustrate the opponent. It's great to see him get some run and it seems Jim O'Brien didn't immediately shoot down his confidence, so let's see how this progresses. Sounds like we may see some more small ball, which would obviously affect our defense quite a bit. Keep an eye out for Granger playing more 4 so PG can get some floor time.
