Everyone scores as Pacers rout shorthanded Nuggets 119-80

Doesn't make up for last night's choke against the Orlando Magic, but a 119-80 blowout win over the Nuggets, who clobbered them in Denver, isn't a bad consolation. The Nuggets were already missing sparkplug Nate Robinson for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, and they recently lost Ty Lawson to a broken […]

Pacers choke away big lead, lose 93-92 to Magic in Orlando

I seriously thought they had this one in the bag. The Pacers thought they had too, which is why they allowed the Orlando Magic, who stunned Western Conference leaders OKC on a buzzer-beating dunk a couple of nights ago, to come all the way back from a 10-point 4th quarter deficit to take a 7-point […]

Pacers break curse against Hawks, take 89-85 road win

The Indiana Pacers had won in Atlanta during the regular season for 7 years (though they did win game 6 in last year's playoffs to advance to the second round) and have been lackluster in the second night of back-to-backs, scrubbing up a 4-6 record when the second night is a road game heading into […]

Pacers bench steps up, blow out Magic 98-79

Pacers coach Frank Vogel challenged his bench to step it up against the Orlando Magic to give the starters more time to rest in the first night of a back-to-back, and they responded in resounding fashion, turning a close game into a 98-79 blowout and ensuring that no starter apart from Lance Stephenson played more […]

Pacers hold off Brooklyn, await Andrew Bynum’s arrival

Let's get the boring stuff out of the way first. The Indiana Pacers held off the Brooklyn Nets, 97-96, to sweep the season series. Roy Hibbert and Paul George had 20 apiece, and David West made the big buckets (from the field and the line) to finish with 17, 7 and 7. Shaun Livingston was […]

Got your number: Suns beat Pacers in Indy

Maybe the Phoenix Suns just have their number. The Pacers were looking to avenge a 124-100 blowout in Phoenix last week, but the Suns defied the odds, raced out to a big first half lead (despite Frank Vogel preaching better starts) and held on 102-94 to hand the Pacers just their second home loss of […]

Pacers overcome Lakers to end road trip

The Indiana Pacers beat the LA Lakers 104-92 to end their final extended west coast road trip 3-2, improving their league-leading record to 35-9.  It wasn't a petty game despite the fact that the Pacers only turned it over a seaosn-low four times. The defense still isn't quite in synch and the offense looked predictable […]

Tired Pacers can’t come back against Nuggets

Move on, nothing to see here. The Indiana Pacers have not been very good in the second night of their back-to-backs this season. They just came off an emotional come-from-behind overtime win over the Kings in Sacramento and did not arrive in Denver until 4am. It was their third game in four nights in a […]

All-Star starter George huge on both ends as Pacers edge Kings in OT

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why Paul George is your Eastern Conference starting forward. PG24 scored 36 points, converted on a four-point play to send the game into overtime, and stripped the ball from Isaiah Thomas with the Kings down by 3 in the final seconds of OT, then converted two more free throws […]

Pacers get pummeled by Suns, 124-100

Just an ugly effort by the Pacers, who were dumbfounded by the energetic Suns offense en route to giving up a season high 124 points, nearly 36 points above the Pacers' league-leading season average. This kind of thing was unexpected, but not entirely surprising given that this is the first time these two lineups have […]

Pacers start hot, hold off Warriors for 5th straight

That was close. After opening the game on fire and opening up a 20-point lead, the Pacers allowed the streaky Warriors to bomb their way back into the game, but in the end managed to hold on to a 102-94 win thanks to some fortuitous misses and lucky shots. The win is the Pacers' fifth […]

Pacers cruise over Clips despite West’s ejection

The LA Clippers were without Chris Paul, the best point guard in the league, but they had won 5-staight coming into tonight's game against the Pacers, with Blake Griffin tearing it up everywhere. It was the second night of a back-to-back for the Clips, an area they have struggled in (as have the Pacers), so […]

Pacers make it look easy against Knicks in 3rd straight blowout

Since losing to the Hawks, the Pacers have beaten the Wizards by 27, the Kings by 24, and tonight they neat the Knicks by 28. Last time they needed a foul on a last second three-pointer and Paul George magic in overtime to beat the Knicks — this time they turned it into a laugher […]

Cousins goes off, but Pacers smash Kings anyway

The Sacramento Kings might have one of the worst records in the NBA, but they've been playing well as of late behind the growing beast that is DeMarcus Cousins.  I knew the Pacers were going to have trouble with Cousins tonight, which they did, as the young stud powered his way (with surprising finesse in […]
