NBA: David West showing his worth for Pacers
East » Indiana on verge of 1st playoff series win since 2005.

"There’s kind of been this this idea that if he’s shooting the ball and doing what he’s doing, they’re not launching threes and (Hedo) Turkoglu’s not getting the ball and (Jameer) Nelson’s not getting his looks," West said. "At this time of year, you know you’ve got to give up something. He’s been making some tough baskets. Everything he’s doing is contested. He hasn’t been getting anything easy, so we’ll live with that."

Most of Orlando’s shots have been contested. The Magic are shooting just 39 percent from the field and 33 percent from 3-point range in the series. Even with those dreadful statistics and two straight losses at home, Van Gundy said his team hasn’t given up.

"I honestly believe that our guys believe they can win," he said. "I go by what I see — guys practiced very hard today. Guys were very focused today on some of the adjustments we wanted to make. We’ve practiced very much like we’re still in a series. That’s all I can go on. I think our guys will be ready to go."
