On Thursday’s podcast Adam Friedman and Tony East give their two overreactions regarding the Indiana Pacers’ 111-83 over the Memphis Grizzlies and break down everything about the Myles Turner contract.

To listen to the podcast click below or here.

Adam’s first overreaction: Domantas Sabonis will average a double-double and win sixth man of the year.

Why Sabonis continued his strong performance from the regular season.

Why Sabonis/Turner fit it still TBD.

Tony’s first overreaction: Darren Collison will regress a lot more than we originally thought.

Why Collison’s struggles continued from the preseason.

Why it was realistic for him to decline.

Why Tyreke Evans might take his job eventually.

Adam’s second overreaction: Bojan Bogdanovic will lead the league in three-point percentage for those attempting 200 or more three-pointers.

Why Bogdanovic looked like the only unphased Pacer at the start of the game.

Why Bogdanovic is overlooked amongst small forwards.

Tony’s second overreaction: The best Pacer lineup will involve three guards.

Does this mean Tyreke Evans, Cory Joseph and Victor Oladipo?

Why Evans played really well with Domantas Sabonis.

Myles Turner’s contract extension:

Why this contract makes sense for both sides.

Why Adam and Tony still can’t believe this contract actually happened.

Quick Note: I’m going to post Pacers column every Monday and occasionally Friday. It’ll break down some of the biggest Pacer news of the week, plays I’ve liked and didn’t like and preview the upcoming matchups. I also want to incorporate a mailbag piece to each column but I’ll need questions for that. I’ll remind people in my posts over the next couple weeks, but if you have at least a semi-related Pacer mailbag question you want answered click this Google link to submit them or clicking here.
