Pacers streak ahead in ESPN Power Rankings

Let’s hope this is not a jinx. With road wins in Miami and LA, plus close losses at home against the Thunder and Magic, the 8-7 Indiana Pacers have risen an impressive 9 places from 20 to 11 in the ESPN’s weekly Power Rankings. This is what Marc Stein of ESPN had to say: Road […]

You Better Believe It: Pacers top Lakers in LA!

Unbelievable.  Two nights after a heartbreaking OT loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at home, the Pacers went into LA’s Staples Center and shocked the defending champs Lakers, 95-92, raising their record to 8-7 (including 4-2 on the road).  If the Pacers can just find a way to win at home (where they are 4-5), […]

Disappointing Loss to Thunder in OT, 110-106

The Indiana Pacers looked like they were heading towards a three-game winning streak, but instead, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant put the Thunder on their backs and rallied for a nail-biting 110-106 OT victory in Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers were up by as much as 14 points in the third, but the Thunder, led by […]

No Letdown; Pacers Pound Cavs 100-91

Admit it.  You too were worried that the Indiana Pacers, one night after their stunning victory in Miami, would stumble back at home against the Lebron-less Cavs.  The Pacers of last year probably would have lost this game, but not this year. The Pacers went back to Conseco Fieldhouse and took care of business in […]

Take That! Pacers kill Heat in Miami, 93-77

Apologies for the tardiness is reporting what must surely be the biggest story for the Pacers this season (the only thing close enough to challenge is the 54-point third quarter against the Nuggets).  As I write this, the Pacers are also annihilating the Cleveland Cavaliers, so it looks like it won’t be a letdown tonight. […]

Pacers come up short against Magic, 90-86

For the first half at least, the Indiana Pacers looked like they were on track to knock off the Orlando Magic.  Roy Hibbert was outplaying Dwight Howard and no one else on the Magic was dominant.  In the second half, the Magic started to impose their class, and despite some poor shooting from the outside […]

Pacers pound hapless Clippers

This was a scary game for the Indiana Pacers.  For starters, they were without PG Darren Collison (ankle) and Mike Dunleavy (wife having a baby).  The LA Clippers were also on a horrible 7-game losing streak, meaning they were desperate and dangerous. Fortunately, the Pacers were on their game tonight and pounded the Clippers 107-80. […]

Shorthanded Pacers fall to Hawks, 102-92

The up-and-down season for the Indiana Pacers continues.  Tonight, they lost to the Atlanta Hawks at Conseco Fieldhouse, 102-92, dropping them to 4-5 for the season. To be honest, I wasn’t confident that the Pacers could pull out the victory against the stacked Hawks squad, and my confidence was further dashed when I discovered that […]

Granger, Pacers rebound, overcome Cavs on the road

After a tough loss to the Houston Rockets the night before, the Indiana Pacers, lead by Danny Granger, buckled down in the second half to defeat the new look Cleveland Cavaliers, 99-85.  A much stronger effort by the Pacers tonight on the defensive end, but as always, there’s still plenty of room for improvement. Danny […]

Pacers fall to Yao-less Rockets, 102-99

Well, no one expected the Pacers to repeat their performance against the Denver Nuggets the other night.  Tonight, the Pacers took on the Yao-less Houston Rockets, who have struggled themselves out of the gate.  It was a close game with some questionable calls down the stretch (including a tech on Josh McRoberts and a series […]

Did that really happen? Pacers go insane against Nuggets!

  I am speechless.  I am without speech. I was out and about when I decided to check the score of the Indiana Pacers-Denver Nuggets game.  When the score flash up, I decided I must have been dreaming.  It was the end of the third quarter and the Pacers were up 113-76.  I looked at […]

Pacers fade down the stretch against the Bucks

The Indiana Pacers lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 94-90, in a game they really should have won. There really isn’t a nice way to say it — they choked.  After scoring 60 points in the first half to take an 8 point lead, the Pacers couldn’t make a basket in the second half, spluttering down […]

Pacers absolutely embarrassed by 76ers

I had a feeling this might happen. Optimistic Indiana fans just got a shock dose of reality today as the Pacers were thoroughly embarrassed by the 76ers in Philadelphia, 101-75. The Pacers fell behind early in the first quarter and never recovered, finding themselves down by 15 points by the end of the first quarter […]

Pacers down Sixers in Home Opener!

  Great win for the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse against the Philadelphia 76ers tonight.  It’s early, but with the 99-86 win the Pacers are now 2-1 for the season and out on top in the Central Division. The Pacers have a bit of a break now as their next game is not until November […]


Pacers pick up Rush for another year

The Indiana Pacers obviously see something in Brandon Rush. Despite not having come close to living up to expectations as the 13th pick of the draft from 3 years ago and having been suspended for 5 games for drug violation to start off the season, the Pacers thought it fit to pick up Rush’s option […]
