George Hill Trying to Block Out Hip Pain
In George Hill’s mind, the hip is great.
In reality, the hip hurts.
“If you think about it, your mind starts playing tricks on you,” Hill said after Sunday’s 107-90 Game 1 win over Atlanta. “So when I go out there, I just try and think I’m at 100 percent. I try and block it all out.”
“George Hill is a fighter,” Pacers reserve Gerald Green said. “He’s been dealing with that it seems like all season. But he knows we’re in the most important part of the season. Nothing’s stopping him from being out there.”
