Not good: Pacers lose to Bulls as Heat showdown looms

"Stay the course" is the motto coach Frank Vogel has been preaching since the Pacers began their struggles before the All-Star break last month. But if they keep staying on this present course we're probably looking at a second seed and a first round exit. Am I exaggerating? Perhaps, but the Pacers have been in […]

Pacers crap again in loss to Grizzlies

The Pacers had a good win last night against Chicago at home, and it was hoped, win or lose, that they would put up another strong effort in Memphis. It was not to be. The Pacers were suffocated offensively and lost 82-71, a season low in output. The 11 point differential is a lot worse […]

Pacers play well at last, beat Bulls

Feels like it has been forever since the Indiana Pacers have played well, but that's what happened tonight against the Chicago Bulls at home. After a tight first half, the Pacers went on an 19-0 run in the third to blow the game open, and the Bulls would not get closer than 8 the rest […]

Pacers fall to Knicks in first game of Phil Jackson era

Despite the repeated emphasis of coach Frank Vogel before the game, the Indiana Pacers don't have their swagger back. At least not yet. The Knicks have struggled all year but came into the game at Madison Square Garden on a 6-game winning streak. The Pacers had won 4-straight but they were all hard-fought battles against […]

Pacers rally from 25 down to beat Pistons in OT

It did not look good for a very long time. The Pacers were coming off a closer-than-it-should-have-been victory over the cellar-dwelling 76ers last night and were up against a Pistons team looking to make a final push for the 8th seed in the East. No one said it would be easy as the Pacers look […]

Pacers nearly embarrass themselves in win over lowly 76ers

For a while, it looked as though the Philadelphia 76ers could very well end their 18-game losing streak against the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers ran out to an early lead but couldn't put the game away, and the feisty 76ers just kept chipping away at it until a […]

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

Basketball icons > Poker stars…Or the other way round Some of the brightest stars in basketball have been attracted to the grandeur of major poker competitions for quite a long time, now. 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 […]
