Cohen Courtside: Storylines vs. Pacers
Cohen’s Analysis: You would assume Danny Granger is on the trading block, considering how well the Pacers have played, particularly defensively, without him. Granger’s absence has allowed Paul George to evolve into a potential All-Star. But come playoff time, Indiana’s offensive limitations may deny them from advancing far. Granger is expected back in early February from a knee injury. Should Indiana look to move him with the concern that when he returns George will revert back to his substandard ways and the team’s chemistry will disintegrate? Or will DG’s versatility and stat sheet stuffing only help its chances?
