    This team definitely has ECC talent. Remember Granger brings around 17-18 PPG that weve been sorely missing. There are times in a lot of games where we are defensively shutting down the opponent, but we cant hit a bucket to save our lives. We go on these runs up by 5 or 6, they last 4 or 5 minutes and we end them up 8 or 9. With someone there to fill in those gaps in the offensive game (Granger) we could push those leads out farther and take over games. Thats truly the only thing that has been missing this year. Right now when David West and Paul George are having shooting woes, there is no one to pick up the slack. From time to time George Hill will get the scoring started, but its not enough.

    Granger is an excellent shooter. Defenders have to respect his 3. that stretches the floor and pulls the double off of Hibbert, allowing him to be more effective in the post.

    We need Granger back to go from ECC contender, to NBA Finals Contender.

    Can they pull and upset and knock off someone to make the ECF, sure but in terms of winning the East and then the title (long shot at best).

    Granger is probably a slightly more efficient scorer. If anything, it's a wash. Hill is having a solid year, but he's not a tremendous scorer. Granger will help the team out. Maybe not miraculously, but to an extent at least.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    Why would it be an upset if the Pacers went the ECF?

    Im not sure you understand how this team functions. This team is a go to them when they are hot team. There are some games where George has put up big numbers, but only a couple of those he was consistently on all game. Most of the time he goes on hot streaks in a half or a quarter. There are a lot of gaps on the offensive side of the ball where no one is scoring. Thats probably why we have the 29th ranked offense in the NBA. Granger will only help fill in those gaps. We need his points.

    no, they couldnt beat the heat without bosh last year and had a huge size advantage

    sadly they are the new hawks of the east, not good enough to be contenders, but good enough not to be in the lottery.

    Well cause I don't think they are one of the two best teams in the East. I think MIA and a healthy Bulls team are the two best in the East meaning they wouldn't be favorites against either hence an upset. It's not like the 69' Namath Jets upsetting Unitas or anything but an upset none the less.

    I personally dont think so.
    But if they do, it would be a pleasant surprise.

    Paul george is finally showing signs of hsi potential for the past few games.
    would be interesting to see how he plays once granger comes back and george goes back to playing the 2.


    LETS GO HEAT

    Pacers have 0 chance at a ring.

    Those are the 3 contenders in the east.
