Pacers lose 101-93 in game one, home court advantage gone

Well that was disappointing. The Pacers came out on a roll against the Hawks in their first round matchup tonight, scoring the first basket on a David West dunk and the second on a Roy Hibbert hook shot. The Hawks would shoot their way to a lead as the Pacers gave up one frustrating long […]

Round 1 Preview: Pacers (1) vs Hawks (8)

And so the real fun begins. The No. 1 seeded Indiana Pacers (56-26) open their 2014 playoff campaign against the 8th seeded Atlanta Hawks (39-43) . No one gave the Hawks a chance after they lost Al Horford for the season with a pec injury, but they managed to hang around and finish the season […]


Pacers beat Magic, finish season 56-26

The Indiana Pacers reserves plus a half of Roy Hibbert and George Hill, minus CJ Watson and Ian Mahinmi, were good enough to blow out the Orlando Magic tonight 101-86. Of course, Orlando had reason to tank as they wanted to lock up the 3rd best chance of securing the No. 1 pick in the […]


Pacers to play Hibbert & Hill, rest other starters in season finale

Smart move, coach Vogel. With the first seed wrapped up, the Indiana Pacers don’t have much to play for in their final regular season contest in Orlando on Wednesday night. But with the team seemingly not in particularly good form heading into the playoffs, would it have been better to rest the starters again, as […]


Pacers clinch East’s No. 1 seed, face Hawks in 1st round

They didn’t exactly earn it. But they’ll take it. With LeBron James and Chris Bosh sitting, the Miami Heat were trounced 114-93 by the Washington Wizards on Monday night, ensuring that the Indiana Pacers will have home court advantage through to the Eastern Conference Finals in the upcoming playoffs. Both teams still have one more […]


Pacers hold off Thunder, No. 1 seed within grasp I like it much better when the Indiana Pacers are underdogs. And that’s exactly what they were, even at home, against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder are the worst matchup in the entire league for the Pacers, and the last time these two teams met the Pacers were on top of their game […]


Heat crush Pacers with huge third quarter run I’ll try to be succinct. Final score: 98-86 (23-25, 22-17, 31-20, 22-24) Key team stats: Turnovers — Indiana 16, Miami 9; Rebounds — Indiana 31, Miami 40 Key individual stats: LeBron James — 36 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assists; Mario Chalmers — 13 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists; Paul George — 22 points, 5 […]


Vogel’s gamble to rest starters pays off as Pacers edge Bucks This was a huge gamble, but fortunately for the Indiana Pacers, there was a positive outcome. With the Pacers stumbling towards the regular season finish line, coach Frank Vogel made the drastic decision to bench all five starters in their clash with the league’s worst team, the Milwaukee Bucks, on Wednesday night. The idea […]


Pacers need an exorcist after blowout to Hawks

Just when you thought the team was taking a step in the right direction, and then THIS. A 107-88 loss to the Atlanta Hawks at home, an embarrassing defeat where the lead ballooned to 30+ — in the first half, the lowest scoring half in franchise history (23 points!!!). A game where the supposedly best defense […]

Raptors Pacers

Pacers take step back, stumble against Raptors

What can I say? Seriously. The Pacers played better offensively, but they practically gave away the game tonight in Toronto but failing to score in the last 4 minutes and 23 seconds of the game. That turned a 94-92 lead into a 102-94 loss. It’s not like someone was hogging the ball. Roy Hibbert miss […]


Pacers finally play well, beat Pistons 101-94

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. It’s just one game, but at this point, the Indiana Pacers will take it. After scoring more than 80 in just one of their last six games, the Pacers finally played unselfish basketball tonight, sharing the ball, driving and dishing, screening, boxing out and making cuts en route […]

As expected, Spurs trounce Pacers as No. 1 seed lost

It’s sad, but not unexpected. The San Antonio Spurs came to Indy with the NBA’s best record and a 17-game win streak. The Indiana Pacers have been complete and utter crap, having lost their last two games in double-digits against the Wizards and Cavs and having eclipsed 80 points only once in their last 6 […]


No. 1 seed slipping as Pacers lose 90-76 to Cavs

There’s not much else to say at this point after the Indiana Pacers dropped their fifth straight on the road with an embarrassing 90-76 loss to the surging, Kyrie Irvingless Cleveland Cavaliers. As a team the Pacers shot 37.2%, coughed up the ball 15 times, hit only 10 of 16 free throws and accumulated just […]


Indiana, we have a problem: Pacers freefall recommences in DC

The Pacers went to DC on a high after beaten hated rivals the Miami Heat in a one-point thriller. They left DC scratching their heads again after regressing to the shitty play that’s been plaguing the team for more than a month and a half. The final score was 91-78, but it felt worse. They […]

Pacers edge Heat 84-83 in playoff-intensity thriller

My hands are still shaking. The Pacers just escaped with their biggest win of their season in Indiana by edging the Heat 84-83 as Chris Bosh missed a 22-foot jumper at the buzzer. It was playoff intensity all night, marked by a couple of near flagrants against the Pacers and a flagrant against Lebron for […]
