Pacers fall against Golden State, that is all

Not much to say. Golden State were just better. 102-93, but Pacers never really challenged in the fourth quarter. Fall to 8-9 overall and 2-1 on current 4-game road trip. Chicago coming up next. Observations: – David West still beast (23, 8, 4 on 10-16 shooting). Needs to teach Tyler Hansbrough how to start hitting […]

New additions paying dividends as Pacers escape Raptors This was a game the Pacers would have lost in the last few years.  No doubt about it.  I’ve seen it happen enough times.  And to be honest, I was terrified that they were going to squander a golden opportunity to get an easy win against a Bargnani-less and Bayless-less (double negative…so would that […]

Pacers barely overcome Cavs in OT Another game, another win for the Indiana Pacers, who start the season 3-0 for the first time since 2007-2008 (let’s forget what happened after that).  I could get used to this. In yet another struggle, the Pacers dodged a bullet and overcome no.1 overall pick Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers, 98-91 in OT.  This […]

Pacers start 2011-2012 2-0; thoughts

Apologies for the absence the last few days. Playoffs aside, this was the most important part of the post-lockout season, and I was strangely absent. Not that any of you care, but I had a good reason: I’ve become a dad! Look out, because in about 20 years the NBA will have a new star. […]


Pacers reportedly will trade Rush for Amundson

Whoa!  And you thought the Pacers were never going to get rid of Brandon Rush. Although this has not yet been finalized, various reports around the league are whispering that the Pacers have either agreed to are are very close to agreeing to swapping Brandon Rush for the Warrior’s Lou Amundson. Though it’s not fair […]

Pacers Pre-season Game 1: Likes and Dislikes Almost 8 months since their last game, the Indiana Pacers returned to action today against the team that knocked them out of the 2010 playoffs — the Chicago Bulls.  And like that exciting, competitive first round series, the Bulls came out on top again this time, 95-86.  Sure, it’s just a preseason game, but […]


Indiana Pacers 2010-2011 Player Review: Danny Granger

Finally, I caught up.  Shortly before the tip-off of the Pacers first preseason game for 2011-2012 (against the Chicago Bulls), I am finally at the very last of my player review posts for last season.  And who better to cap it off than Danny Granger, the best player on the team? Well, even though Danny […]

Crawford to Blazers, Landry re-signs; Pacers done dealing?

Looks like the Pacers may have finished their dealings for the offseason.   Jamal Crawford has signed with the Portland Trailblazers for 2 years and $10 million, including a player option in the second year.  That’s unfortunate because Larry Bird offered Crawford the same (or very similar terms) for him to come to Indiana, but […]

No Mayo, No Crawford, No More McBob

After the signing of All-Star forward David West, I expected the good news to keep rolling in. But alas, it was not to be.  The Pacers failed again in their attempt to procure OJ Mayo from the Memphis Grizzlies through a sign a trade involving Josh McRoberts (and possibly Brandon Rush, which is probably what […]

As expected, Pacers to use amnesty on Posey

For those who don’t fully understand the ‘amnesty clause’ in the new NBA collective bargaining agreement (CBA), it essentially allows each team in the NBA to shred ONE existing player from their roster for salary cap purposes.  This player must already be on an NBA contract from the date the CBA is brought into effect […]


Pacers welcome David West! Still eyeing Mayo, Landry

Whether it is a good deal remains to be seen, but for now Pacers nation is rejoicing the reported signing of marquee free agent and new starting power forward David West from the New Orleans Hornets, after a reported deal with the Celtics fell through.  The deal is said to be $20 million over 2 […]


Indiana Pacers 2010-2011 Player Review: Roy Hibbert

Only a couple of player reviews left, and it’s only fitting that the second last one is that of arguably the second most important player on the Pacers last season, big man center Roy Hibbert. At a glance of his overall stats, Hibbert had a decent third season in the NBA, where he played in 81 […]

West going to Celts? No chance for Pacers?

After the Pacers reportedly dropped out of the Nene sweepstakes after New Jersey offered $15 million a season, they turned their attention to New Orleans scoring PF David West, who is coming off ACL surgery.  Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), West is apparently (according to Yahoo Sports), close to signing a 3-year deal […]


Indiana Pacers 2010-2011 Player Review: James Posey

Remember when James Posey arrived in Indiana as a side piece in the Darren Collison deal and everyone said he could be a hidden gem?  A guy considered a key to Miami and Boston’s championship runs, Posey was expected to be a leader on and off the floor, provide solid defense and timely three point […]


Indiana Pacers 2010-2011 Player Review: AJ Price

Like the rest of the Pacers, second round pick AJ Price had an erratic sophomore season.  Due to a knee injury he suffered during a charity game in New York before the commencement of the 2010-2011 season, Price missed the first few months and his numbers were down almost across the board — 50 games […]
