Bynum debuts as Pacers beat Celtics, snap skid

No one's expecting the Pacers to turn the corner overnight, but today's 94-83 win over the Boston Celtics is certainly a move in the right direction, and at least halts heir season-high 4-game losing streak. The final score was not indicative of how close this game was, as the Celts closed within a single point […]

Pacers lose 4th straight but show signs of turning the corner

Trying my absolute hardest to see the silver lining in the Pacers' 105-94 loss to the Mavs in Dallas tonight. First of all, Miami lost their third-straight, to the Bulls in OT, keeping the Pacers 1.5 games ahead in the East but with the same number of losses. Oklahoma City also got stunned by the […]

Pacers get annihilated by Rockets, should we panic?

The answer to my own question, after that 112-86 spanking by the Rockets, is "not yet, but close." I say that because there's still plenty of time for the Pacers to steer the ship back in the right direction after they just suffered their third straight defeat for the first time this season. At the […]


Dunkin’ Aces

Tournaments like the World Series of Poker have been participated in by NBA players such as Jordan Farmar and Shawn Marion. Also, basketball […]

I don’t even wanna talk about it: Pacers get spanked by Bobcats

The same Charlotte Bobcats the got lit up by LeBron James for 61 just a few nights ago made the league-leading Indiana Pacers look like the worst team in the league tonight.  It was embarrassing, from the 0-9 night by Paul George (he had a sore back that tightened up, but still) to the franchise-low […]

Pacers fall to Warriors on last second shot

Sorry for the two-game hiatus. I've been busy, but the Pacers had been getting by just fine without me, squeezing past a couple of bad teams in Boston (102-97) and Utah (94-91) without George Hill (shoulder) to string together a 5-game winning streak. But it was obvious to anyone watching that the Pacers aren't playing […]

Pacers hold off Bucks again, 101-96

The team with the best record in the NBA vs the team with the worst record in the NBA. Should be a cakewalk, right? Well, no. Full credit to the Bucks, who overcame a 17-point first quarter deficit to keep the game close down the stretch and forcing the Pacers to knock down their free […]

Pacers cream Lakers in Turner’s 13-point debut

In just one game, newly acquired Pacer Evan Turner has put to bed questions over whether he is an upgrade over Danny Granger. Turner had 13 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in 26 minutes in his debut as the Pacers pummeled the shorthanded Lakers 118-98 to improve to 43-13 for the season. I love […]

Pacers open post-Granger era by holding off Bucks

The Indiana Pacers were ready to start a new chapter after bidding farewell to Danny Granger after the 9th year veteran was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers just before the trade deadline for Evan Turnover and Lavoy Allen. The team had lost three of its last five games, but it appeared as though the Milwaukee […]

What the Granger-Turner trade means for the Pacers

Sad, but also encouraging news today. The Indiana Pacers, who have lost 3 of their last 5 but remain atop the Eastern Conference by 2 games over the Miami Heat, traded former franchise player Danny Granger and their 2015 second round pick to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. First […]

Betting tips on basketball: Who will win this year’s NBA?

According to the bookmakers and most of the pundits, there is only one franchise to bet on for the 2014 NBA finals and that is Miami Heat. There is no doubt that Miami Heat will make the play-offs and have an excellent chance of getting to the finals, but they are not the only team […]

Pacers drop lackluster game in Minny as Kevin Love goes for 42

There's good news and bad news. The good news is tha the Pacers don't have any more back-to-backs where the second game is on the road. They've struggled with those all season and won't have to face another one until next season. The bad news is that they got walloped by the Minnesota Timberwovles, 104-91, […]

Pacers easily hold off banged-up Hawks in first game back

The first game back from the All-Star break provided an opportunity to gauge the Pacers' mindset heading into the second half of the season. Despite the lack of rest afforded to All-Stars Paul George and Roy Hibbert, the Pacers were good enough to pull out a 108-98 win against the shorthanded Hawks. George was red […]


Pacers’ All-Star Weekend 2014 Round-Up

You know what? This year's All-Star Weekend was actually pretty good. The main reason is that the Pacers were well represented, with Paul George leading the East dunkers to a sweep in the new-format Dunk Contest, George and Roy Hibbert playing and Frank Vogel coaching the East All-Stars to a record-breaking come-from-behind 163-155 victory over […]

Pacers vomit all over themselves in loss to Mavs

Hey, let's go into the All-Star break with some momentum! The Mavs are playing in the second night of a back-to-back and they just got slaughtered by the Bobcats. The Pacers have only lost at home twice all season. Oops…had. The entire Pacers team came out and laid a big fat egg tonight and lost […]
