Sharp, balanced Pacers take game 1 with 107-96 win

Admit it. You thought there was a good chance the Pacers would lay an egg tonight. But we forgot they were playing Miami, and the Heat always bring out the best in Indiana. The Pacers were in scintillating form tonight while the Heat were passive, and the result was a wire-to-wire 107-96 victory that wasn’t really […]

Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

2014 East Finals: Do the Pacers stand a chance against the Heat?

So here we are. The Heat vs the Pacers. Indiana vs Miami. The 2014 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. It was what everyone expected at the start of the season and what no one saw coming just a few weeks ago. The two teams have had very different paths up to this point. Both teams struggled […]

West activates Godzilla mode, Pacers KO Wiz in 6

When ordinary beast mode is not enough, it’s time to activate “Godzilla” mode (or “Gojira” mode in Japanese). That’s exactly what David West did tonight, carrying the Pacers on his back and sending them back into the Eastern Conference Finals for a rematch with the Miami Heat. In the third quarter, when the Wizards attempted […]

Pacers tortured in game 5 by Gortat, Wizards

I am speechless. I am without speech. The Indiana Pacers had an opportunity to close out the Washington Wizards in game 5 tonight after going up 3-1 in their second round series. Instead, they go out and lose — wait for it — 102-79(!), trailing by more than 30 at home for the second time […]

Paul George epic as Pacers edge Wiz from 19 down to go up 3-1

Well, it didn’t take long before this optimistic tweet after game 1 came back to haunt me. How quick we jump to conclusions. After coming back from a 19-point deficit to beat the Wizards 95-92, the Indiana Pacers have moved within a single victory of returning to the Eastern Conference Finals, and they will get […]

Pacers turn back the clock to suffocate Wiz in 85-63 win, lead 2-1

Let’s not carried away here because it’s just one game and the Pacers have only gotten back the home court advantage they lost in game one. But boy is it gratifying to see some Blue Collar, Gold Swagger again tonight in a second half for the ages as the Pacers held the Wizards to a […]

Hibbert explodes for 28 and 9 as Pacers tie series at 1-1

Has the curse of Andrew Bynum finally been lifted? On the day the Bynum experiment was officially terminated (ruled out for the rest of the playoffs), Roy Hibbert exploded out of the gate and powered the Pacers to a 86-82 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to tie their series with the Washington Wizards at 1-1. […]

Washington Wizards v Indiana Pacers - Game One

Pacers lose game 1 to Wiz as struggles continue

I said before the start of the series that the winner of game 1 will probably win the series. The Washington Wizards did that tonight, 102-96, and there’s no reason to doubt they won’t send the Pacers home for a long summer. The final six-point margin was not indicative of how much better the Wizards […]

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 — […]

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 […]

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 crush Hawks to tie series at 1-1

Well hello, Indiana Pacers. Welcome back (for now). It wasn’t looking so good at halftime trailing 52-48, but the Pacers came out on fire at both ends of the court in the second half to annihilate the Hawks with an impressive 101-85 win that included a 19-0 run stretching the third and fourth quarters. Paul […]
