George Hill was irate following the Pacers 99-93 home loss to the Lakers on Friday night, and it wasn’t simply because they lost. Hill went on a rant ripping Pacers fans for not supporting the team enough at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse where the crowd was predominantly Lakers fans Friday evening. After losing an “important” game to LA, Hill, who said the Pacers have done their part in the community, demanded a change.
According to the Indy Star:
“It sucks. It was 70 (Lakers fans) – 30 (Pacers fans) out there. These are the same people that wants autographs after the game. We’re out there in the community. We’re doing our job, doing what we’re supposed to do on and off the court. Something has to change.”
“They always say your fans are your sixth man and you feed off that energy. Energy is down and we turn the ball over and we’re hearing cheers. We’re missing shots and we’re hearing cheers. That kind of brings your head down cause you know you’re at home. It shouldn’t be like that. Now we see how it is. We have to move forward, don’t worry about. Stay focus on what’s in this locker room and don’t worry about the rest.”
