MILWAUKEE -- When Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel benched his starters for the entir
#1
MILWAUKEE -- When Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel benched his starters for the entire game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, it meant extended playing time for the teams reserves. Air Max 2019 Ireland . Chris Copeland made sure to take advantage. Copeland scored a season-high 18 points and made a difficult driving layup with 1.2 seconds remaining, giving the Pacers a hard-fought 104-102 that moved them back into first place in the Eastern Conference. "Its big for our confidence, the second unit," said Copeland, who came in averaging three points. "Just to get the opportunity out there. A lot of us have been waiting for that all year. So it was very cool for us to get out there and get a win and show the starters that weve got their backs when they need rest." Copeland also tied a career high with four 3-pointers and matched a season high with 17 minutes of playing time. Following a pair of timeouts, the Pacers inbounded the ball to Copeland, who drove hard to the basket for the winning shot. "I tried to rip through to the basket and tried to use my size," Copeland said. "I saw help coming, so I shot it." Copelands shot came after Milwaukees Khris Middleton had tied the game at 102 after making three free throws. Middleton drew a foul while attempting a shot near the 3-point arc with 4.9 seconds remaining that referees initially ruled a 2-point attempt. After a review, the call was reversed, sending Middleton to the line for three shots. Luis Scola also recorded a season high with 24 points and Evan Turner added 23 for Indiana. Vogel made the unusual move to keep all of his regular first-team players on the bench after saying his team appeared tired following a 107-88 home loss to Atlanta on Sunday, when the Pacers were held to a franchise-low 23 points in the first half. "It was a great win for our guys, a great team effort," Vogel said. "We had a lot of good contributors." Even without the starters, Indiana moved a half-game ahead of the Heat heading into Fridays matchup in Miami. After leading the East most of the season, the Pacers had lost five of six games coming into the matchup with the Bucks. Still, the Pacers came in just a half-game behind Miami, which lost at Memphis. The Bucks, who had only eight players available due to injuries, have lost six in a row and were on the losing end of all four games with the Pacers this season. Brandon Knight had 25 points and Ramon Sessions 20 for Milwaukee. Jeff Adrien pulled down a career-high 17 rebounds. The game featured 23 lead changes. Usual Indiana starters Paul George, David West, George Hill and Lance Stephenson dressed but didnt play. Another starter, Roy Hibbert, was inactive for the game. All five are expected to start against the Heat. Vogel insisted that the move would allow the starters to get some minor injuries healed and for his reserves to play extended minutes. The Pacers starting lineup consisted of Scola, Turner, Rasual Butler, Ian Mahinmi and Donald Sloan. The five had a combined scoring average of 21.7 points, equal to Georges per-game average. "It was great for us starting guys to sit out and get some rest as well as our bench rotation guys to get some rhythm going late into the season," George said. "Its tough to be a spectator. But I had to be a good teammate." Adrien wasnt pleased with the benching of the Pacers starters. "It was kind of like a smack in our face," he said. Sessions also was surprised to see Indianas entire starting lineup on the bench. "They are fighting for something so it was a little surprising to see those guys sit," he said. The Pacers built a nine-point lead in the fourth before the Bucks late rally. Indiana held a 53-50 lead at the half, paced by Scolas 16 points and 14 from Turner. Sessions and Knight each had 11 first-half points for the Bucks. The game was tied at 25 after the first quarter. Scola tallied 12 points in the period for Indiana. Notes: Indiana guard C.J. Watson returned after missing 13 consecutive games with a hamstring injury. ... Milwaukee centre Larry Sanders was activated and began serving his five-game suspension for failed drug tests. ... New Marquette University mens basketball coach Steve Wojciechowski attended the game. Nike Air Max 97 Ireland . The German has taken the pole for three straight races -- winning the first two. Hes aiming for a third consecutive win at the Yeongam circuit and, most importantly, a fourth consecutive F1 championship. Nike Air Max Ireland . Forward Iker Muniain scored the winner in the 70th minute after Bilbaos incessant pressure recovered the ball and sparked a counterattack inside Barcelonas half. Neymar was once again tagged to pick up Messis goal-scoring duties, but when he wasnt frustrated by slippery footing Bilbaos defence got the better of him. http://www.irelandcheapairmax.com/cheap-...ind-4.html .com) - Colorado may be ahead of the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference standings, but they are a club that the Avalanche may want to avoid in the playoffs.Lance Stroll deserves his chance in F1 and should not be dismissed as a pay driver according to Tom Gaymor who commentated on his European F3 title success. Stroll will make his grand prix debut with Williams in 2017, but has been branded a pay driver - a label saddled with negative connotations - due to the financial backing from his father, Lawrence, a billionaire. But how good is the 18-year-old? And does he deserve his F1 opportunity in 2017? We spoke to Tom Gaymor, who has commentated on Strolls title-winning Formula 3 success this year for Eurosport... Is he ready for Formula 1?Tom Gaymor: I cant imagine Williams would put him in the car if they didnt think he was ready. Frank Williams has got to have been impressed with his character and probably echoed some of the points below himself. Bring on Australia.How good is Lance Stroll?TG: The reality of the situation is that he is very good because you cannot achieve what he has achieved without being good.I dont care what anybody says, anybody that has been a racing driver or has experience in the sport will understand you cannot win multiple championships, you cannot win an F3 championship without being good. He has earned his stripes and if Williams think he is ready then regardless of the amount of money he is bringing, they think he is ready. Tom Gaymor, F3 Commentator He has had very, very good team-mates in Maximilian Gunther and Nick Cassidy. George Russell, a McLaren Autosport Young Driver of the Year, is a very talented individual and on his day will be unbeatable. Lance has made them look silly.Yes, he has had a lot of support from Williams. Yes, he has technical support from Williams at the circuit, but he still has to go out there and do that.There is a huge percentage of drivers who have a huge amount of support because of the financial infrastructure that they have got and the people that they bring into their teams to support them and cant even replicate finishing in the top 10. So Lance has done an incredible job. How does European F3 work? 10 rounds at circuits in France, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Italy and Germany Three races at each round Last year he came under scrutiny because his race craft wasnt great, but he has learnt from that. He came into this year as the favourite and it didnt start that well for him. He won the first race at Paul Ricard, he had one podium Hungary, he had one podium out of three races at Pau and it wasnt until the fourth round of the year (10 races later) that he had his second win.In that period of time Gunther had two wins, Russell had a win, Ben Barnicoat was going well with two wins as well. It would have been easy for him to capitulate under that pressure. He rose above that, found his own rhythm and had the strength of character to settle into his environment and once the wins came he had the ability to keep winning. That is not always as easy as you think it is going to be, some drivers when they win say they feel next time out it is a lot easier, but some drivers fear having to replicate that, it can add pressure as well - particularly when you have three, four, five wins on the bounce.What makes Stroll stand out as a cut above?With Lance, what has impressed me is getting over two hurdles, bouncing back from his ban in 2015.Stroll was handed a one-race ban for moving in the braking zone at Les Combes at Spa. Running three abreast, he squeezed Mikkel Jensen and Felix Rosenqvist to the outside of the circuit and the three collided and crashed out of the race.Being able to withstand the criticism he faced last year - and it was scathing - because to have that amount of scrutiny as a youngster when you are insecure, trying to develop as a human being, trying to be accepted in a new world for you, it can be very damaging. He had the strength of character to rise above that.That will be very importaant when he goes to Formula 1 because unequivocally he is going to face scrutiny when he gets to Formula 1. Cheap Nike Air Max. It is going to happen, it is the world stage and you only have to look at drivers that have gone before him. If he makes two or three mistakes people are going to get their claws into him.Hes already proved he has a strong character - that will be important - and ability of dealing with the pressure of being a favourite and going out and delivering results. A lot of people get to Formula 1 by dodging that bullet. They dont have to deal with the pressure, they dont have to get the results, they can finish fourth or fifth in a championship and, with their funding, go up.Lance has answered his critics, he could not have done anymore, he has wrapped up an incredible amount of wins and at the end of the day beaten some very talented racing drivers to a very important title.What might be potential issues for him when he gets to Formula 1?I think hes only ever been within one stable, that stable has been built around him.It is no secret that the Stroll family invested in Prema, hes done a lot of testing within that environment, hes done all his racing within that one environment, the testing he is doing with Williams is with a car that they have bought and a team they have created to do that over this winter. So when he goes into Williams, he will feel accepted and they will make him part of the team because that is what any strong team does. But he will face that challenge of being under scrutiny and having to deliver within an environment he is unsure of.How will he deal with that? Only time will tell, but in my mind he is good enough.Would he have been better served with more years in junior categories?I am not a fan of seeing people moving up the ladder too quickly, people will always look at Max Verstappen and say well he has done it and they are always looking for the next Verstappen, the next Michael Schumacher, the next Ayrton Senna.Is Lance Stroll that? Hes only done two years in cars, I dont think there is any point in hypothesising, but he has earned his stripes and if Williams think he is ready then regardless of the amount of money he is bringing, they think he is ready.For the feeder series and their health I do think people should be encouraged to develop. But Verstappen, it doesnt matter what car you drive, he would develop as an individual. There were question marks over that before he went to Formula 1 and rightfully so, but once he got into Formula 1 he showed that as an individual he has total understanding of his process, he has total understanding of what to do, so he has developed as a human being, he has developed as an athlete. Hes done that incredibly quickly, thats down to his maturity and his ability to learn quickly.There have been examples before where drivers had great results but had not quite been ready. Romain Grosjean at Renault was one, but he went back, developed as a human and an athlete and hes come back to F1 as a very complete racing driver.Lance is very mature, hes learnt quickly, hes come through two important hurdles as mentioned above. Is he the complete human being, the complete athlete? No, but neither is Verstappen. Will he be able to rise to occasion? We will see that in the first three, four, five grands prix.
