Amare takes over as Pacers lose another one on the road

Not much to say.  Close game all night.  Amare Stoudemire takes over the down stretch.  Knicks win 98-92.  Pacers are now 14-18 and have lost their 9th straight on the road.  Percentage wise, they are on track for a 36-46 finish.  Will Danny Granger be able to step up and be the big time player […]

Pacers lose one, win one against the Wizards

I expected the Indiana Pacers to win both games against the Washington Wizards, but it wasn’t to be.  The team was horrible in the first one in Washington, where they lost 104-90 in an awful performance where no one could hit anything.  Both Granger and Hibbert continued their struggles while Dunleavy led the way with […]

Pacers lose to Grizzlies and Celtics at home in consecutive games

Argh. I was so confident that the Indiana Pacers were going to bring their A game and topple the Boston Celtics tonight — so confident that I didn’t even post after the Pacers got blown out at home in a 104-90 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies a couple of days ago. The Pacers played well […]

Collison outplays Paul; Dunleavy tips in winner against Hornets

What a way to head into the Xmas break! The Indiana Pacers looked in control most of the night against the New Orleans Hornets, who had been struggling on the road but had also beaten the Pacers the last four times.  With the Pacers up 89-88 with 30 seconds left in the game, the Hornets […]

Valiant Effort Falls Short as Pacers Lose in Boston

So close and yet so far. The Indiana Pacers headed to Boston to take on the streaking, albeit Rondo-less Celtics, who came into the game on a 12 game winning streak. It was going to be tough to get the win, but the Pacers battled really hard for most of the game, outhustling the Celts […]

Pacers get by Cavs; Eye Celtics

It wasn’t without a scare, but the Indiana Pacers put together a much better effort against the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers, winning 108-99 in the end.  Granger had 30 points to lead the way, and Hibbert, Rush and Dunleavy each had 15. The win snapped a 3-game losing streak, but things don’t get much easier as […]

Pacers smashed by Lakers, look to get back on track against Cavs

 This recap comes a little late, but it was tiring always posting about Pacers losses to superior teams.  And they don’t get much more superior than the two-time defending champs, who were out for revenge after the Pacers stunned them at Staples earlier in the season.  The result was another drubbing that saw the margin […]

Ugly effort as Pacers fall to Bulls

The Indiana Pacers lost 92-73 to the Chicago Bulls, but to be honest, I don’t feel too bad about it.  The Bulls were hot and on a five-game winning-streak entering their encounter with the Pacers.  The Pacers were without their leading scorer Danny Granger (ankle).  They fell behind early 14-2 as the Bulls simply could […]

Hawks pound Pacers, 97-83

What can I say?  The Hawks were too good for the Pacers, again, even without Joe Johnson. It’s hard to win a game when both Hibbert and Granger go 3-14 (Granger had 8 free throws to give him 16, but Roy had none to give him 6).  As a team they shot 37% in one […]

Pacers back to winning ways, defeat Bobcats

A much better effort this time against the Charlotte Bobcats after their disappointing loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.  The Pacers led most of the way, but couldn’t really put the Bobcats away until the end of the fourth quarter.  Whatever.  They won 100-92, and that’s all that matters. Hibbert had 13 points, 14 boards, 6 […]

Pacers lose another close one to Bucks as Bogut alley-oops at buzzer

Disappointing does not begin to describe what just happened a couple of minutes ago.  With the game tied 95-95, the Indiana Pacers had a chance to win the game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the buzzer, but a rushed wide-open shot from Roy Hibbert ended in an airball and gave the Bucks the ball with […]

Brandon Rush is Smoking…Hot! Pacers Slam Raptors!

Give me some of whatever Bradon Rush has been smoking… Sorry, that was an awful joke, but cut me some slack as I’m on a high after the Indiana Pacers dominated the Toronto Raptors 124-100 behind Brandon Rush’s season high 26 points. Rush was 10-18 from the field including 6-8 from three-point range, but all […]

Pacers let another one slip away, this time to Suns

The Indiana Pacers were looking to bounce back from their thumping at the hands of the Utah Jazz (who had their six-game winning streak snapped by the streaking Dallas Mavericks).  For three quarters, they were in control of a tough game against the Amare Stoudemire-less Phoenix Suns, but again, the team broke down in the […]

Reality Check: Pacers Smashed By Jazz

The Indiana Pacers were on a high heading into their game with the Jazz in Utah.  They were on a four-game road winning streak, having beaten the Miami Heat, the LA Lakers, and were coming off a solid victory against the Sacramento Kings the night before.  Even though they had a record of just 9-7, […]

Granger’s Season High 37 Propels Pacers to Victory over Kings

They’ve shown they can beat the good teams on the road, and now the Indiana Pacers are showing that they can take care of business against lesser teams too. Danny Granger scored a season high 37 points on 12-19 shooting, continuing his hot streak against Sacramento as the Pacers overcame the Kings, 107-98.  Roy Hibbert […]
