These are all well and good, and I'm not saying Turner has 0 value.  What I'm saying is he is getting outplayed by other players on the roster and the team would be better off trading him.  For example, my claim is that the Pacers would be better off with Jaylen Brown, Sabonis, and Goga compared to Sabonis, Turner, and Goga.  It's great to have a big who is a good rim protector and who can shoot 3s, but he has a worse RPG than Russell Westbrook, Richaun Holmes, Patrick Beverley, Rui Hachimura, and Rudy Gay.  Every year, we've been waiting for him to have his breakout season, and he still can't average 15 PPG.

1. The Celtics are not trading us Jaylen Brown for Myles Turner.

 

2. You just need to give up on the "breakout" season for Myles. He's not going to average 15 PPG in this system unless he is taking 9 3's a game like KAT is. 

 

The other 4 players in the starting lineup are all averaging 17 PPG or more this season. There is only one ball. Myles Turner is not getting the touches and shots necessary to average 15. 

 

Goga is a complete liability on defense right now. We should not be relying on him in any regard until he learns how to defend without fouling.

 

 

 

If Myles Turner played in this game, he would be contesting all these shots and making it a lot more difficult on Harden. Sabonis just cannot provide that defense and Goga can shot block, but he gives up too many fouls. 

 

Myles never has high rebounding numbers because he constantly has to protect against other players on the team getting beat and meeting guys at the rim. The rest of the team is there to rebound the ball.

 

 

I'm not even thinking about trading Myles until/unless Goga improves to a place where he can be impactful while playing 20-25 minutes.

Edmund Sumner will play against the Pistons tomorrow. I wonder how he factors into the rotation.

 

Either he takes Aaron Holiday/TJ McConnells minutes, he remains out of the rotation, or they go back to a ten man rotation where they do small ball and play all 3 guards together at some points.

At Madison Square Garden for the Pacers/Knicks game. 
 

I counted maybe only three other Pacers fans here.

That is the only bad game they have had lately. Other than that game, they have beaten some good teams.

Pacers are doing real well.  I wonder when Dipo will be back.  

 

I saw a story on NBA Hoops Rumors that he is looking at late January for a return.  No need to rush as long as we're winning games right now.

 

Will be interesting to see how the chemistry of the team will change one he's back.  Obviously, everyone wants him back, but there will be some adjustments to make when he is in the line-up compared to how things are working now.

 

But, it's all good!

At this rate, I don't expect him back until after All Star Weekend.

When Vic gets back, teams talking junk will come to a halt. Let the games begin then. We have held our own without Vic, when he gets back that puts us 2nd best in the east IMO, only behind the Bucks. We would smoke Miami with a healthy Vic.

Didn't catch the entire game, but did watch the end of the 4th quarter. Nice to have the team almost healthy again.

 

I really, really hope Sabonis gets an All Star selection. He deserves it.

Outside of Embiid, I'm not sure there is a better big man in the East right now.

What a game by Pacers on the road against good Den team.

 

Congrats Sabonis on getting his first Triple double and Only Lithuanians to achieve that feat in NBA. The guy is a beast and I think the best old school Big man in the NBA or atleast EAST. 

 

Loveeeeeeeee the game by Brogdon / Warren / Sabonis / McBuckets. 

 

Lets go to Utah and beat them.... 1-0

Just think, last year there were a bunch of fans that wanted Sabonis traded. 

I said they were crazy then and wasn't wrong. haha

Sabonis has very good basketball IQ I was watching last night game and Turner was standing in the paint while Sabonis pushing the defender and Brogdon has ball so he signal Turner to move to corner 3 which open the lane for Sabonis.

    • If Luck would have stayed and we made it to the AFC Championship game, would the team still be considered in rebuilding mode?   I think the "rebuilding" was meant more to have depth, which wasn't there on Grigsons roster.  I think we have depth at most positions now.  The roster is pretty solid.  Rebuilding usually doesn't mean top 5 players at each position.  QB is the biggest step left to rebuild.  
    • Yeah, I almost see this as a positive also, helping him fall to us.  The Raiders are snagging him one pick ahead of us in a lot of mocks that have him falling a little - Vegas, gotta scare them off a bit.  Raiders seem to do their own thing too (Carlin Ferrell).  Maybe they take Ruggs in homage to Al Davis.  Seems like we have a pretty good locker room and coach to screw a partier’s head on right...
    • Couldn't have said it better myself.  
    • Andy Reid will make some adjustments to attack the 49ers since he has 2 weeks for preparation. He’s 18-3 after the bye
