DJ Augustin for MVP!
Sign of a true fan. Crap all over a player when he struggles, sing his praises when he delivers.
DJ, starting for the second consecutive game for the Pacers at point guard in place of the injured Geoge Hill, rose to the occasion again, setting another season high with 18 points to go with 6 assists in 37 minutes as the Pacers allowed the Wizards to come...

Roy Hibbert had 20 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 95-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
Hibbert grabbed a career-high 11 offensive rebounds as the Pacers (20-14) won their seventh straight home game. George Hill added 14 points after missing Indiana's previous three games with a right thigh contusion.
See, I told you the Pacers would bounce back.
After failing in to chances earlier on in the season, the Indiana Pacers finally got one against the Milwaukee Bucks. This home win came just after the Pacers got smashed in Boston, so it must be a good feeling, though I doubt they will celebrate too much considering they next face the Heat and the Knicks.
Tonight was Roy Hibbert...

Kevin Garnett: KG bounced back from a slightly poor game by dominating an overmatched Pacers frontcourt. He put up a typical 36-year old Garnett statline: 18 points on 50% shooting, with 7 rebounds and excellent defense. You cannot ask for much more. Also he set the tone physically, and...
