After suffering a disappointing loss to the Lakers on Friday, George Hill ripped the fact Bankers Life Fieldhouse was mostly filled with Los Angeles fans.
In Hill's mind, the Indiana Pacers have done enough to regain support from the fan base, but the guard was frustrated about the lack of support the team received not just Friday, but throughout this season.
“It sucks," Hill said. "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. I tip my hat to this team. We’ve been trouble free. Been out in the community shaking hands, we’re winning. It shouldn’t feel like an away game, especially with an important like this. Tonight, that’s what it felt like.
“(We’re) not a team that’s in the bottom in the East. We’re one of the top three teams in the East. We’re winning the Central Division and it should show. Right now it’s not and it’s been all season long where it’s not showing and I don’t think there’s nothing else we can do as an organization and as players. Now it’s up to the community.”
