Hibbert, Lee suspended as Pacers down Warriors

The Pacers beat the Warriors 108-97 for their fifth consecutive win, but all ESPN could talk about was the tiny little fracas at the end that saw Roy Hibbert ejected. And multiple technicals handed out. In the aftermath, Hibbert and the Warrior's David Lee were each suspended one game, while Lance Stephenson, Stephen Curry and […]

Pacers clobber 76ers for 3 wins in 3 nights

What a great way to stick it to David Stern. When the Pacers' Dec. 26 clash with the Bulls was postponed due to a snowstorm, I had a look at both teams' schedules and figured there were plenty of slots for a replacement game that suited both teams. Instead, the NBA decides to shaft the […]

The BEAST is back! David West triple-double powers Pacers over Bobcats

I could have sworn I wrote this one already but for some reason it disappeared. I'm not going to rewrite the whole thing again. David West returned to beast mode to post his first career triple-double with 14 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists as the Pacers held off the Charlotte Bobcats 96-88 without Paul […]

DJ Augustin surprises by not sucking; Pacers beat Grizzlies

What a great way to end 2012. Playing like a turd spread over stale bread all season, DJ Augustin got the call to start at PG tonight over George Hill, who sat out with a groin/leg problem, apparently. The move must have sent chills down the spines of every Pacers fan, because Augustin hadn't even […]

Pacers hammered by Hawks, 4-game winning streak snapped

You could tell from the way the Pacers have been playing that they needed a bit of a wake up call. They've been getting it done against poor teams, but just barely. Against a team like the Atlanta Hawks, missing Josh Smith or not, the Pacers were going to be in for a rough night. […]

Ugly win against Suns to keep Pacers’ win streak alive

Not much to say. Pacers were killing the Suns early, racing out to a 14-point lead at the half. Then they fell asleep and the Suns came roaring back. But Pacers eventually hold on for a 97-91 victory. Again, lots of problems but enough to get it done against a lottery team. That's 4 in […]

Pacers thump Jazz with surprising ease

Count me as one of the surprised. Perhaps sensing that the world is about to end, the Indiana Pacers played one of their best games of the season by thumping the Utah Jazz 104-84 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse last night. The game wasn't even as close as the score suggests, as the Pacers had a […]


Pacers lose Hibbert, beat Pistons anyway

They may not have lost much on the offensive end, but the loss of Roy Hibbert in the second quarter to a bruised thigh certainly made me sweat a little. Fortunately, David West buckled down and entered beast mode in the second half, and George Hill and Paul George continued their stellar play as the […]

Pacers top 76ers with three great performances

The end of the first half had me wondering whether the Pacers were destined to lose tonight's game against the 76ers. David West scores on a tip in to give the Pacers a 4-point lead with about 4 seconds to go. Off the inbound, Paul George goes for the steal and commits a foul with […]

Pacers win by keeping Cavs to 23 second half points,

Maybe it's the addition of Ben Hansbrough to the Pacers rotation, but for some reason I wasn't that nervous even when the Cavs were hitting everything and sped to a double digit lead in Wednesday night's game. It just seemed improbable that they could keep those percentages up against one of the best defensive teams […]

The NBA prepares itself for Ben Hansbrough

Let's face it, it's now only going to be a matter of time before the Indiana Pacers capture their maiden NBA title, because coach Frank Vogel has announced that Ben Hansbrough, the baby brother of Tyler "Psycho-T" Hansbrough, is about to become the Pacers' back-up point guard. Starting (well, coming off the bench) tonight in […]

Pacers drop another to Thunder

Two steps forward, two steps back…although you can't say the outcome of this game was unexpected. The Indiana Pacers dropped their second straight after losing 104-93 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, falling to 10-11 for the season. To be honest it wasn't a horrible performance. For the majority of the game they were in the […]

Pacers disappoint against Nuggets

The Indiana Pacers appeared to have momentum heading into their showdown with the Denver Nuggets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so it's disappointing to see them crumple down the stretch and hand the Nuggets a 92-89 victory. I had hoped for JaVale McGee to score some baskets for the Pacers but instead he dominated Roy Hibbert, […]

Pacers beat Blazers, move above 0.500

The Indiana Pacers were ready for a letdown game after an impressive 3-1 road trip out West. But instead, the team seized the opportunity to go over 0.500 for the first time since they started the season 2-1, and defeated the Portland Trailblazers 99-92 to improve to 10-9 for the season including 5-2 at home. […]

Paul George bounces back with 34 to lead Pacers over Bulls

After chucking up a turd in the last game against the Warriors in his last game, Paul George came to play tonight against the Bulls in Chicago, putting up an efficient 34 points on 14-25 shooting to go with 9 rebounds as the Pacers survived with an 80-76 victory. Importantly, the win puts the Pacers […]
