Farewell, David West

This blog doesn’t usually post non-Pacers news, but I’ll make an exception this time to spew up my thoughts on David West’s signing with the San Antonio Spurs. The contract is one year, $1.4 million, the veteran’s minimum, meaning West essentially left $10.2 million on the table as he would have made $12.6 million by […]


Pacers re-sign Stuckey on $21m/3 deal

I wasn’t optimistic that Stuckey would re-sign with the Pacers despite him expressing an intention to stay in Indy and help the team that rebuilt his image and career last season. Money was a problem and so was the chance to win a title, and apparently contenders had been knocking on his door with wads […]

NBA: Playoffs-Washington Wizards at Indiana Pacers

Farewell Big Dawg: Pacers dump Hibbert on Lakers

In somewhat bittersweet news, the Indiana Pacers have reached an agreement to ship out-of-favor center Roy Hibbert to the Los Angeles Lakers for what has been reported to be cash and an unspecified second round pick. The details are still being worked out as the trade won’t be finalized until after July 9, when the […]


Pacers get their man, nab Monta on $44/4yr bargain

NBA free agency has gone apeshit right form the get-go this year. The only thing that matters right now is that Monta Ellis, the dynamic shotmaking 6’3″ guard from Dallas, is heading to Indy! It was such a downer to see the heart and soul of the team, David West, opt out of the final […]

No Big Willie or Big Frankfurt: Pacers select Myles Turner

http://gty.im/460809048 When the Indianapolis Star broke the news yesterday that David West was opting out of the final year of his contract with the Pacers, disappointed fans immediately began looking towards the NBA Draft tonight. Who could the Pacers draft that would fill the void long-term? No one can replace West’s voice in the locker […]

Indiana Pacers Can Go Big Or Small At NBA Draft In Brooklyn

The Indiana Pacers did not qualify for the playoffs during the 2014-15 season, and they couldn’t even enjoy the moment when the face of the franchise, Paul George, returned after his gruesome leg injury during a team USA scrimmage last summer. In the season finale, George was carried off the court after hearing a “pop” […]

Pacers’ 2014-2015 over, look toward next season

http://gty.im/465708887 Well that was disappointing. After teasing us from the brink of elimination with a 6-game winning streak, the Pacers’ Cinderella charge towards the postseason came crashing down to reality tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies. I knew they were going to be running on fumes after that double-OT win over the Wizards last night, so […]

Pacers beat Wiz in double OT; I nearly die of heart attack

Not much to say. The Pacers looked crap all game but someone managed to squeeze out a 99-95 win against the Wizards in double OT. I nearly had to be hospitalized watching the game because it was so close and so frustrating and so euphoric. Every one of their core guys made big plays in […]

Pacers hang on to playoff hopes despite Westbrook’s 54

Let’s cut straight to the chase. The Indiana Pacers held off the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, 116-104 despite Russell Westbrook erupting for a career-high 54 points. CJ Miles led the Pacers with 30, George Hill played big with 19 and 7 on just 10 shots, Roy Hibbert won his matchup against Enes Kanter with 17 […]

Pacers smash Knicks but playoff hopes fading

Good thing the Knicks such so bad. Just hours after news broke that Chris Copeland was stabbed outside a New York night club, the Pacers regrouped and thumped the Knicks 102-86 to keep their playoff hopes alive. Paul George netted 10 points in 16 minutes in his second game back, but shot just 2-7 from […]

PG13 nets 13 in Pacers win season’s biggest game

Everything went according to script. In his first game since snapping his leg last August, Paul George returned to a standing ovation and lifted the Indiana Pacers to their biggest win of the season, a 112-89 thumping of the Miami Heat. In his brand new No. 13 uniform, PG13 scored 13 points in 15 minutes […]

Paul George to return on Pacers’ biggest game of season

http://gty.im/183953119 It’s official. Paul George is coming back, and it’s going to be in the Pacers’ biggest game of the season against the Miami Heat on Sunday night. A little more than 8 months after breaking his leg in horrific fashion, George will return in his new No. 13 uniform for about 10-15 minutes, according […]

Breaking down race for final 2 East playoff spots

So the Indiana Pacers finally got a win they needed to get by trampling all over Lance Stephenson and the Charlotte Hornets today. Coupled with a loss to the Celtics and a come-from-behind win by the Brooklyn Nets, the race for the final two spots in the Eastern Conference playoff race currently looks like this: […]

Pacers hang on in playoff race with big win over Mavs

I remember predicting not that long ago that the Indiana Pacers would go something like 7-3 over their next 10 and secure their position in the playoff standings. Of course, they then proceeded to lose their next 6 games and 7 of their next 8 to fall into 10th in the East. With Paul George’s […]

Pacers See Most Expensive Remaining Home Ticket When Thunder Come to Town

The Indiana Pacers picked a bad time to start losing basketball games. After winning seven straight games and finding themselves in one of the final two playoff positions in the Eastern Conference, the Pacers gave it all back by going 3-7 in their last 10 games, including a six game losing streak. The Pacers most […]
