Pacers down Bulls to stay undefeated, I confess they are for real

Keep up the defense, check. Dominate the boards, check. Cut down the turnovers, check. Hit your free throws, check. Back it up on the second night of a back-to-back, check. Shut down the Bulls, check. Stay undefeated, check. That's right, baby! The Indiana Pacers just smoked the Chicago Bulls, 97-80, in their biggest statement game […]

Pacers hold off pesky Pistons to remain only undefeated team

The Indiana Pacers entered tonight's game with Detroit as the only undefeated team left in the NBA this season, and they maintained that status after a closer-than-it-should-have-been 99-91 victory over the Pistons. Again, good and bad things tonight. First and foremost, it was good to get a W on the first night of a back-to-back […]

Sloppy Pacers rout Cavs for 3-0 start to 2013/14

Make no mistake: this was an ugly game. Both sides were sloppy, missed a lot of shots up close, lost control of the ball and turned it over on numerous occasions. Botched fast break layps and dunks (including one by Paul George). But the good news is that the Indiana Pacers still came out on […]

Pacers earn huge comeback win vs Pelicans, improve to 2-0

Remember last season when the Pacers started with a thrilling win over the Raptors, only to lose the next night to the lowly Bobcats? Well, the New Orleans Pelicans are not the Bobcats — they're an up and coming team whom some believe could challenge for a playoff spot — but the Pacers appeared to […]

Pacers grab 1st win of 2013-2014 season by downing Magic

Finally, the 2013-2014 NBA season has begun, and the Indiana Pacers grabbed its auspicious first victory with a 97-87 win over the Orlando Magic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. They say the preseason doesn't mean anything and they would be right. The Pacers had a different look in their eyes from the opening tip as they […]

With renewed hope and high expectations, the Indiana Pacers will finally kick off their 2013-2014 campaign on Oct. 29 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse against the Orlando Magic. After coming within a single game of the NBA Finals last season, the Pacers are "all in" this time around, according to team president Larry Bird, who claims […]

Pacers clobber Mavs for 3rd-straight blowout in final preseason game

Things are looking much better for the Indiana Pacers now than a few weeks aho, when they stumbled to a 0-5 start out of the preason gate. After smashing the Dallas Mavs (a team that beat them in one of those five games) 98-77, the Pacers have won their last three preseason games by blowout […]

Pacers rout Cavs for first preseason win

It took a lot longer than expected, but the Indiana Pacers finally grabbed their first preseason win of 2013 with a convincing 102-79 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs were actually up pretty much all of the first half until the Pacers turned it on the second half and cruised through to garbage time. […]

Thoughts on the Pacers’ ESPN NBA Player Rank for 2013-2014

I don't know why people care about it so much, but the controversial ESPN NBA Player Rankings for the upcoming season are out. People's knickers get twisted in a bunch over this every year, and they have this year as well, mostly with Kobe being ranked at 25 and Carmelo Anthony ranked at 15, etc.  […]

Pacers fall to Bulls again; 0-5 preseason

I refuse to be concerned. The Indiana Pacers got off to a good start against the Chicago Bulls, but in the end Derrick Rose (32 points) proved to be the difference as the Bulls held on 103-98 for their 5th consecutive preseason win and the Pacers winless in their preseason. The Bulls will most probably […]

Recovering Pacers drop 4th straight preseason game

Fresh off their grueling Asia trip with a 180-degree flip in time zones, the Indiana Pacers dropped their fourth consecutive preseason game, losing 92-85 to the retooled Dallas Mavericks. Not a surprise, and not a big deal. Paul George sat out with bronchitis, which is a worry considering how much these things take out of […]

Pacers drop to 0-3 in preseason after loss to Rockets in Taipei

Having watched the Indiana Pacers lose their second straight game to the Houston Rockets at Taipei Arena in person on Sunday, I can confidently say that the team still has a long way to go — but there is a lot of cause of optimism. Despite falling to 0-3 on the preseason (against teams in […]

Pacers crushed by Rockets in Manila, arrive in Taipei

Must be exhausting. Just hours after the first ever NBA game in Manila, the Indiana Pacers and Houston Rockets each caught red eye flights to Taipei, arriving around about 3am on Friday morning local time. I'll be courtside for the game in Taipei on Sunday, so stay tuned for updates! Anyway, the Manila game was […]
