“In the Pacers’ Game 1 loss to the Cavs, it was CJ Miles whom (Paul) George called out for missing a potential game-winning jumper. That led George to declare, “In situations like that, I got to get the last shot. I was asking for it. CJ took it upon himself.”
“He’s (Lance Stephenson) got to learn to control himself and be in the moment,” George said. “Lance, in our locker room, is looked upon as a leader. His body language has to improve — just for the team.”
“We just need him (Myles Turner) to challenge Tristan [Thompson], keep him off the boards,” George said of the 21-year-old Turner. “He needs to make himself available down low in the post.”
