George Hill, Indiana Pacers

Hill unfortunately missed the Game 5 of the series with a bad concussion and his absence was conspicuous. Without Hill to run the point, Indiana turned the ball over 19 times and shot just 36.2 percent in a 10-point loss that forced the series back to Indianapolis for Game 6.

Hill returned for Game 6 and the turnover count dropped to nine, with just one of them coming in the second half, and the Pacers were able to withstand a sizzling second-half run by the Knicks to close out the series. 11-2 to close out well the series. We need to thank every Pacers who had solid performances during the span.

It’s not as if Hill’s numbers in the series were dazzling—16.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game in the five games he played on just 36.8 percent shooting (25-for-68). But the advanced numbers tell a big story. Hill had an offensive rating (ORtg, points per 100 possessions), of 106 and a defensive rating of 97.1—that 8.9 differential was far and away the best among Indiana’s balanced starting five. What a player to help his team to destroy Knicks ! The balanced starter was the key factor !

The game of his life

Hill was especially tough in Indiana’s Game 4 win, with 26 units.
