On Wednesday night the New York Knicks had the Indiana Pacers in their building who upset them last season in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals when the Knicks had the home court advantage after finishing the 82 game regular season with a better record than Indiana. Going into last night’s game Indiana had the best record in the NBA with just one loss and the Knicks were losers of their last five home games and three straight games overall. Every where you turn Indiana forward Paul George is talking about how he wants to be the next star player in the NBA. George was impressive in last season’s playoff’s against the Knicks and then later Miami and Lebron James.

Frank Vogel says he told Paul George six games into the preseason that he was going to run ALL of the offense through him this season.  So far it has Indiana atop of the NBA standings and Paul George on the verge of super stardom

George was voted the NBA’s Most Improved player last season and he was rewarded by the Indiana Pacers with a MAX contract of five years $90 million. At the end of regulation with the Knicks up three points George was fouled on a three point attempt and went to the line and calmly hit three free throws and the game went into overtime where George scored seven points to bury the Knicks. After the game Indiana head coach Frank Vogel raved about his budding star Paul George and spoke about how he went to George before the season and told him that he was going to start running all of their offense through him. We spoke with Paul George as well about his evolution of becoming a SUPERSTAR in 2day’s NBA.
With a record of 3-8 to begin the season and losers of their last SIX home games J.R. Smith says it is time to panic.

    That game must have been a heart breaker at the end but he sounds like quite the player!

    The Indiana Pacers beat the Knicks last night because of Team Play on Offense and
    Defense. Pacer Star Paul George got most of the points to take the game into overtime as well as score most of the overtime points within the offensive plays designed by Coach Vogel! The Knicks need to look at the Video of how the Pacers won last night and learn some lessons about Team Offensive and Defense. The Indiana Pacers are a great Team the Knicks should emulate. I also state that the Knicks and their Coaching Staff are not the smartest planning group. I state the Knicks Team lost a winnable game because they didn’t foul any Pacer player at the end of regulation to stop a three point effort to take the game into Overtime. Game lost by Knicks because of No Plan at end of regulation. The Knick Team ran out of gas in Overtime and We saw how the Pacers won the game! Team Offense and Team Defense is what the NBA is all about.
