What They’re Saying: April 22

Here’s a look at what they’re saying around the country the morning after the Pacers’ 107-90 Game 1 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Yahoo Sports’ ‘Ball Don’t Lie’ Blog:  “Just three years removed from the since-vetted scout hype that labeled him as perhaps the finest product in the 2010 NBA draft, Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George used his significant all-around gifts to lead his squad to a 1-0 advantage in his team’s first-round series with the Atlanta Hawks.”  Read More

ESPN Stats & Info:  “The Elias Sports Bureau confirmed that George was the fourth player in NBA Playoffs history to have a triple-double in a game in which he had three field goals or fewer. The others were Lenny Wilkens (1966 Hawks), Wes Unseld (1971 Bullets) and Magic Johnson (twice for the Lakers in 1982).”  Read More

USA Today:  “Paul George removed any doubt that had crept into the minds of many about the state of the Pacers and whether he could get a jolt back into his 22-year-old legs to carry them in the playoffs.”  Read More

SI.com’s ‘Point Forward’ Blog:  “Paul George executed a vicious chasedown block during the fourth quarter of the Pacers’ 107-90 Game 1 win over the Hawks at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday.”  Read More

Indy Cornrows:  “It’s these kinds of games that you’re thankful to have a player like George Hill, quietly scoring 18 points on 7-10 shooting to help Indiana along to the win.”  Read More

Indy Star:  “It’s the playoffs, so Tyler Hansbrough expects the rough hits, the bruises, the under-the-basket collisions. And he’s happy to do the dirty work.”  Read More

Atlanta Journal Constitution:  “A quick perusal of the stat sheet held the glaring evidence of the Pacers domination of the Hawks. Free-throws: Pacers 30 of 34; Hawks 7 of 14. Rebounds: Pacers 48, (15 offensive); Hawks 32 (six offensive).”  Read More

Peachtree Hoops:  ”When the Hawks lose in the playoffs, they lose in style. Since 2008, Atlanta has lost 29 playoff games in their six appearances by 531 points, which makes for an average of 18.3 points per loss.”  Read More
