Quick turnarounds in the NBA mean quick turnarounds on Pacers Pulse.

This is a really hard series to pick. The Wizards are better […]


Pacers eliminate Hawks 92-80 as Hibbert comes back from the dead

After six long games, the Indiana Pacers finally strung together nearly 48 minutes of solid basketball in game 7 to eliminate the pesky Hawks, 92-80, and will move on to the second round against the impressive Washington Wizards, who disposed of the Chicago Bulls in 5). I’m not just saying this because they won — […]

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers at Atlanta Hawks

Pacers force game 7 with 95-88 comeback win

Truth is, the Indiana Pacers were lucky to have forced a game 7. Lucky that David West is still on their team. West activated beast mode when called upon in the last 3 minutes of the game with the Pacers down 84-79. First he hit a couple of free throws and a 19-foot jumper to […]


Pacers go down big in game 5, face elimination

The Pacers eked out game 4 to tie the series at 2-2 and were feeling confident. They thought they could just hold home court in game 5 and get two opportunities to close out the series in game 6, or in the worst case scenario, in game 7 at home. Instead, they fell behind by […]

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers at Atlanta Hawks

Pacers scrape 91-88 win to even Hawks series at 2-2

The good news is that the Pacers’ first round series is back even at 2-2 after the team pulled out a hard-fought 91-88 win in game 4. The bad news is that the Pacers still don’t look anything like a first seed that should be rolling over the streaky Hawks, meaning this series is far […]


Pacers fall into 1-2 hole with 98-85 loss

The Indiana Pacers squandered a great opportunity to get back on track tonight with a sluggish 98-85 loss to the Hawks in Atlanta tonight, falling behind 1-2 in their first round series. Game 4 will be in Atlanta on Saturday and it’s another must-win to avoid going back to Indy facing elimination. The Pacers must […]

Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

Pacers crush Hawks to tie series at 1-1

Well hello, Indiana Pacers. Welcome back (for now). It wasn’t looking so good at halftime trailing 52-48, but the Pacers came out on fire at both ends of the court in the second half to annihilate the Hawks with an impressive 101-85 win that included a 19-0 run stretching the third and fourth quarters. Paul […]


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 […]
