With the Pacers off to a better start in November (5-3) but also most recently held to only 10 points in the fourth quarter against the Knicks, Mark and Caitlin reconvened for Episode 2 of Two Questions, Two-ahh to make sense of where the team currently stands.
Here’s this months questions:
- What went wrong during the latest end-of-game meltdown? Should there be a red flag raised over how the team handles ball pressure and flooding the strong-side? Is there too much pace control? Plus, an array of recurring themes ranging from off-ball McConnell and not getting to the rim to why Myles wasn’t as involved as in prior games.
- Injuries aside, what’s the right balance between situational lineup adjustments and formulating bench chemistry? Has Justin Holiday turned the corner?
- The Pacers are rebounding much better so far this season, what are they doing to accomplish this with largely the same personnel?
- Prior to last night, Indiana currently ranked 26th in free throw rate and 28th in opponent free throw rate. Which of those numbers is more concerning and what — if anything — can be done for the team to get to the line more often?
Then, in bonus content: We power rank our favorite Pacers memes and answer a very important listener question about popsicles (hey, they asked!).
