Well, my nerves are shot, I used the Lord’s name in vain several times over the course of the evening, and the series is now tied at 1-1 heading back to the District. It turns out Indiana can play a little defense. Actually, given that we scored 66 and 73 points in two separate games this year, we already knew that, but last night was impressive. Excuse my Spanish, but what the fuck Roy? Apparently they cleared up whatever little locker room misunderstanding they were having and he’s decided to play basketball again. Although Hibbert is rightfully being given credit for stepping up, it should be noted that Gortat had an equally impressive game, going 10/15 from the field and snagging 11 boards.
Sticking with the positivity, we had a lead with under five minutes left in the game while 1) we shot 5/12 from the line and 5/21 from three 2) John Wall shot 2/13 for really his first bad shooting performance so far in the playoffs, and 3) Roy Hibbert remembered he was 7’2 and had an unbelievable game. We still stole one on the road and frankly looked like a better team in both games, so I’m confident going into Game 3. A few quick thoughts and notes:
