Pacers eliminate Hawks 92-80 as Hibbert comes back from the dead

After six long games, the Indiana Pacers finally strung together nearly 48 minutes of solid basketball in game 7 to eliminate the pesky Hawks, 92-80, and will move on to the second round against the impressive Washington Wizards, who disposed of the Chicago Bulls in 5). I’m not just saying this because they won — […]

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers at Atlanta Hawks

Pacers force game 7 with 95-88 comeback win

Truth is, the Indiana Pacers were lucky to have forced a game 7. Lucky that David West is still on their team. West activated beast mode when called upon in the last 3 minutes of the game with the Pacers down 84-79. First he hit a couple of free throws and a 19-foot jumper to […]


Pacers go down big in game 5, face elimination

The Pacers eked out game 4 to tie the series at 2-2 and were feeling confident. They thought they could just hold home court in game 5 and get two opportunities to close out the series in game 6, or in the worst case scenario, in game 7 at home. Instead, they fell behind by […]

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers at Atlanta Hawks

Pacers scrape 91-88 win to even Hawks series at 2-2

The good news is that the Pacers’ first round series is back even at 2-2 after the team pulled out a hard-fought 91-88 win in game 4. The bad news is that the Pacers still don’t look anything like a first seed that should be rolling over the streaky Hawks, meaning this series is far […]


Pacers fall into 1-2 hole with 98-85 loss

The Indiana Pacers squandered a great opportunity to get back on track tonight with a sluggish 98-85 loss to the Hawks in Atlanta tonight, falling behind 1-2 in their first round series. Game 4 will be in Atlanta on Saturday and it’s another must-win to avoid going back to Indy facing elimination. The Pacers must […]


Pacers lose 101-93 in game one, home court advantage gone

Well that was disappointing. The Pacers came out on a roll against the Hawks in their first round matchup tonight, scoring the first basket on a David West dunk and the second on a Roy Hibbert hook shot. The Hawks would shoot their way to a lead as the Pacers gave up one frustrating long […]

Round 1 Preview: Pacers (1) vs Hawks (8)

And so the real fun begins. The No. 1 seeded Indiana Pacers (56-26) open their 2014 playoff campaign against the 8th seeded Atlanta Hawks (39-43) . No one gave the Hawks a chance after they lost Al Horford for the season with a pec injury, but they managed to hang around and finish the season […]


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 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 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 […]


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 […]
