Observations and Thoughts on the Pacers’ preseason opener

FIrst of all, the Indiana Pacers lost their preseason opener against the Chicago Bulls, 82-76. It was the Pacers first game since bowing out against the Miami Heat in game 7 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals and probably the most hyped preseason game ever — primaroly because of the return of 2011 MVP Derrick […]


The Future is Locked In: Paul George signs 5-year $90m extension

Pacers fans rejoice! The Indiana Pacers are looking pretty good for at least the next 3-5 years after announcing they have signed swingman Paul George to a 5-year max extension, believed to be around $90 million. This means the Pacers now have PG24 for the next five years, George Hill for the next four, and […]

Pacers sign Rasual Butler to non-guaranteed deal

What? Is it almost time for training camp? The Indiana Pacers, looking pretty after their stellar offseason haul, re-signing their rock, David West, and getting rid of DJ Augustin, Tyler Hansbrough, Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee and Jeff Pendergraph in exchange for CJ Watson, Luis Scola, Chris Copeland, Donald Sloan and Solomon Gill. Oh, and Danny […]

Pacers Offseason Round-up: Part 4 — Bring out the Spinach!

The offseason news is gradually dying down, and the Indiana Pacers are looking forward to what should be a promising season. Not much has happened since the last update. Newly acquired forward Chris Copeland underwent knee surgery to clear out some loose crap, and will be out 6-8 weeks. He is expected to be ready by training […]


Pacers Offseason Round-up: Part 3 — Hello Scola!

Holy cow. Larry Legend works his magic once again. The Indiana Pacers have just signed PF Luis Scola — who I have always been a huge fan of — from the Phoenix Suns for dunking turd Gerald Green, second-year PF/C Miles Plumlee, and the Pacers' 2014 first-round draft pick (lottery protected, though this is relatively pointless because the […]

Pacers offseason round-up: part one

I thought I would be able to have a longer break from updating the blog after the 2012-2013 NBA season officially wrapped up a couple of weeks ago with the Miami Heat defeating the San Antonio Spurs in 7 games for back-to-back titles. But boy, a lot has been happening around the league, and a […]

Pacers hand Heat beatdown to force game 7 in ECF!

The Indiana Pacers wouldn't have been able to pull this game out last year. But this year, they are a different team, and even though the odds are firmly against them in game 7, the Heat have some problems that could prove to be decisive in the final game of the series. Like the Heat […]

LeBron turns up the Heat on Pacers for 3-2 lead

Realistically, the real question now is that it's going to be Miami in 6 or 7, right? LeBron James put up a vintage performance (30, 8 and 6) in the pivotal game 5 to give the Heat a 90-79 win, and when he does that there's not much the Pacers can do. But on the […]

Pacers even series by pounding Heat on boards

A lot of controversy in this one. I was livid after witnessing some of the calls against the Pacers, particularly in the 4th quarter (I have no idea how the timekeeper and all three officials could miss the ball bouncing off — not grazing, but bouncing off — the rim before that shot clock violation, […]

Heat scary, pummel Pacers for 2-1 series lead

Really, what can you say? This was just one of those games where you have no choice but to shake your head, acknowledge the supremacy of the Miami Heat, and move on. This was the kind of game that reminds you why the Heat are the reigning NBA champs, and why LeBron James is head […]


Wade’s elbow to Stephenson to be reviewed

The NBA announced that it will review a number of plays from game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. The one that has caught the attention of…everyone…is D-Wade's flying elbow to the head of Lance Stephenson. So Wade runs down the lane on a transition play, possibly […]


Pacers hold off Heat, tie East Finals at 1-1

The Indiana Pacers pulled out a 97-93 victory over the Miami Heat in game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, stealing home court advantage from the defending champs and heading home with a 1-1 split in this 7-game series. Like game 1, the Pacers were up in the dying seconds, but this time they held […]

Pacers shouldn’t despair despite losing game 1 to Heat at OT buzzer

The initial reaction is of course one of disappointment, bitterness, and maybe even anger. After all, the Indiana Pacers just about had the game won, but LeBron James, being the MVP, superstar, one of the GOATs that he is, blew by Paul George for a game-winning layup at the buzzer. And so game 1 of […]
