Pacers come from behind to dump Heat in Granger’s return to Indy

It wasn’t been an easy season thus far, but the Indiana Pacers finished 2014 on a high note, coming from behind to down the Miami Heat , 106-95. The Pacers end 2014 with a 12-21 record, keeping them at 10th in the East and 2.5 games out of the playoff race. The game also marked […]

CJ Watson misses open 3 at buzzer, Pacers lose to Bulls 92-90

It would have been so sweet. The Indiana Pacers were down by 20 the Chicago Bulls at one stage and behind by 16 entering the fourth quarter. Then Chris Copeland caught fire and the Bulls went cold, allowing the Pacers to come all the way back and take a three-point lead down the stretch. The […]

George Hill

Pacers welcome George Hill back with solid win over Pelicans

After missing the first 28 games of the season with a knee contusion, an admittedly unconditioned George Hill returned for the Pacers off the bench to lead the team with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists on 5-8 shooting in just 21 minutes. Most importantly, the Pacers managed to produce a solid win over […]

Streaky Miles propels Pacers over Timberwolves

The struggling Indiana Pacers will take any win they can get these days, and they did so tonight against the cellar-dwelling Minnesota Timberwolves. It wasn’t easy, however, as the Pacers needed just about each one of CJ Miles’s 28 points to eke out the 100-96 victory. Miles, as streaky as ever, was 10-18 from the […]

Pacers Pulse is back, but the Pacers’ pulse is weak

I won’t bore you with why I haven’t posted for about three weeks, but it was probably for the best given how tragic the Indiana Pacers have been throughout this stretch. My last post came after the Pacers overcame the Orlando Magic at home on Nov. 28. From that point on they would go lost […]

David West and CJ Watson return as Pacers roll Magic

Yeah baby. David West shows he’s still got it. Returning from an ankle injury that had kept him out of every game this season, West had a very solid 18. 6 and 4 stat line in boosting the Pacers past the Magic, 98-85. CJ Watson was also back to play his first game, and he […]

Pacers compete against Spurs after beating Mavs

It was a massive surprise to me that the Pacers were able to beat the Mavs in Dallas. I thought it would be a damn miracle if they manage to beat the Spurs in San Antone. Of course, they didn’t, but they almost made me believe they could. The Pacers had led most of the […]

Pacers get crushed by Suns at home as injuries reappear

Injuries or not, the outcome of this one was never really in doubt. The Indiana Pacers just don’t match up well against the Phoenix Suns. Without Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson and CJ Miles, they don’t really stand a chance. And with Roy Hibbert and Rodney Stuckey injurying themselves during the game, […]

Solomon Hill tip at buzzer stuns Lance, Hornets

Take that, Lance Stephenson! Bet Born Ready was not ready for the injury-depleted Indiana Pacers to have a better record than his Charlotte Hornets, regardless of how early it is in the season. And yet, after the Pacers nipped the Hornets, 88-86, the reality is now that Indiana (5-7) have a better record than Charlotte […]

Pacers stun Rose-less Bulls in Chicago

Well there you go. Shortly after I posted about how the Pacers are going to have some nights where the effort will be enough to overcome the talent gap, they go right into Chicago and outwork the Bulls for a 99-90 victory. Yes, the Bulls were without Derrick Rose, but the Pacers were without Paul […]

The Two Faces of November

That’s what happens when your team is decimated by injuries. They fight hard, and on some nights it’s enough, and on others, when the effort is not there, they get smashed. Exhibit A, the Indiana Pacers over the last couple of games. First up, they head to Miami after snapping a 6-game losing streak against […]

Pacers overcome Jazz, snap 6-game losing streak

Remember the time when everyone thought AJ Price was a nice guy, but not good enough to be a third-string guard for a championship contender? Well he’s become the Pacers’ savior now. Signed on Nov. 6 to fill up all the holes in the Pacers’ decimated roster — and only after plans to sign Gal […]

Pacers suffer 6th consecutive loss as Hibbert injured

This has to be a joke, right? The last remaining healthy starter on the Pacers’ roster, Roy Hibbert, played only 11 minutes because of a bruised knee suffered in the first quarter when he tried to set a screen for a teammate. Now the Pacers are without Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson, […]

Pacers fall to Celtics for 5th straight loss

It’s getting laughable now. Having already lost Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson and Rodney Stuckey to injuries, the Pacers are also now without CJ Miles. That’s arguably 6 of the team’s top 7 players. And all they’ve got in return is…AJ Price! That’s right, the former Pacer has been re-signed because Gal […]

Donald Sloan pours in 31 in OT loss to Wizards

The Pacers are still losing, but it’s actually kinda fun watching them being competitive while the tanking process continues. Donald Sloan, the backup to the backup last year, has been forced to play significant minutes for the first time in his career due to injuries to George Hill and CJ Watson (and to a less […]
