Pacers to play Hibbert & Hill, rest other starters in season finale

Smart move, coach Vogel. With the first seed wrapped up, the Indiana Pacers don’t have much to play for in their final regular season contest in Orlando on Wednesday night. But with the team seemingly not in particularly good form heading into the playoffs, would it have been better to rest the starters again, as […]

Pacers clinch East’s No. 1 seed, face Hawks in 1st round

They didn’t exactly earn it. But they’ll take it. With LeBron James and Chris Bosh sitting, the Miami Heat were trounced 114-93 by the Washington Wizards on Monday night, ensuring that the Indiana Pacers will have home court advantage through to the Eastern Conference Finals in the upcoming playoffs. Both teams still have one more […]

Pacers hold off Thunder, No. 1 seed within grasp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtlkZK2cT8Y I like it much better when the Indiana Pacers are underdogs. And that’s exactly what they were, even at home, against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder are the worst matchup in the entire league for the Pacers, and the last time these two teams met the Pacers were on top of their game […]

Heat crush Pacers with huge third quarter run

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZXUUpDeEcM I’ll try to be succinct. Final score: 98-86 (23-25, 22-17, 31-20, 22-24) Key team stats: Turnovers — Indiana 16, Miami 9; Rebounds — Indiana 31, Miami 40 Key individual stats: LeBron James — 36 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assists; Mario Chalmers — 13 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists; Paul George — 22 points, 5 […]

Vogel’s gamble to rest starters pays off as Pacers edge Bucks

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEXARWBhZWk This was a huge gamble, but fortunately for the Indiana Pacers, there was a positive outcome. With the Pacers stumbling towards the regular season finish line, coach Frank Vogel made the drastic decision to bench all five starters in their clash with the league’s worst team, the Milwaukee Bucks, on Wednesday night. The idea […]

THE EXORCIST

Pacers need an exorcist after blowout to Hawks

Just when you thought the team was taking a step in the right direction, and then THIS. A 107-88 loss to the Atlanta Hawks at home, an embarrassing defeat where the lead ballooned to 30+ — in the first half, the lowest scoring half in franchise history (23 points!!!). A game where the supposedly best defense […]

Raptors Pacers

Pacers take step back, stumble against Raptors

What can I say? Seriously. The Pacers played better offensively, but they practically gave away the game tonight in Toronto but failing to score in the last 4 minutes and 23 seconds of the game. That turned a 94-92 lead into a 102-94 loss. It’s not like someone was hogging the ball. Roy Hibbert miss […]

Pacers finally play well, beat Pistons 101-94

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. It’s just one game, but at this point, the Indiana Pacers will take it. After scoring more than 80 in just one of their last six games, the Pacers finally played unselfish basketball tonight, sharing the ball, driving and dishing, screening, boxing out and making cuts en route […]

As expected, Spurs trounce Pacers as No. 1 seed lost

It’s sad, but not unexpected. The San Antonio Spurs came to Indy with the NBA’s best record and a 17-game win streak. The Indiana Pacers have been complete and utter crap, having lost their last two games in double-digits against the Wizards and Cavs and having eclipsed 80 points only once in their last 6 […]

No. 1 seed slipping as Pacers lose 90-76 to Cavs

There’s not much else to say at this point after the Indiana Pacers dropped their fifth straight on the road with an embarrassing 90-76 loss to the surging, Kyrie Irvingless Cleveland Cavaliers. As a team the Pacers shot 37.2%, coughed up the ball 15 times, hit only 10 of 16 free throws and accumulated just […]

Indiana, we have a problem: Pacers freefall recommences in DC

The Pacers went to DC on a high after beaten hated rivals the Miami Heat in a one-point thriller. They left DC scratching their heads again after regressing to the shitty play that’s been plaguing the team for more than a month and a half. The final score was 91-78, but it felt worse. They […]

Pacers edge Heat 84-83 in playoff-intensity thriller

My hands are still shaking. The Pacers just escaped with their biggest win of their season in Indiana by edging the Heat 84-83 as Chris Bosh missed a 22-foot jumper at the buzzer. It was playoff intensity all night, marked by a couple of near flagrants against the Pacers and a flagrant against Lebron for […]

Not good: Pacers lose to Bulls as Heat showdown looms

"Stay the course" is the motto coach Frank Vogel has been preaching since the Pacers began their struggles before the All-Star break last month. But if they keep staying on this present course we're probably looking at a second seed and a first round exit. Am I exaggerating? Perhaps, but the Pacers have been in […]

Pacers crap again in loss to Grizzlies

The Pacers had a good win last night against Chicago at home, and it was hoped, win or lose, that they would put up another strong effort in Memphis. It was not to be. The Pacers were suffocated offensively and lost 82-71, a season low in output. The 11 point differential is a lot worse […]

Pacers play well at last, beat Bulls

Feels like it has been forever since the Indiana Pacers have played well, but that's what happened tonight against the Chicago Bulls at home. After a tight first half, the Pacers went on an 19-0 run in the third to blow the game open, and the Bulls would not get closer than 8 the rest […]
