The George Hill Dilemma

  Can the Indiana Pacers ever win a championship with George Hill as their starting point guard? The answer to the question is debatable, but judging from the five-year, $40 million contract they gave him over the summer, Indiana’s chief decision-makers believed it was a resounding yes. After finding themselves a few bounces of the […]

David West = Beast; Pacers outlast Kings

Seriously, is there any lingering doubt that David West is the Indiana Pacers' best player (even when Danny Granger returns)? All the 32-year-old veteran has been doing this season is carry this struggling team on his back to big wins like he did tonight against the Sacramento Kings, pouring in a season-high 31 points, grabbing […]

Hill hits buzzer-beater to overcome Kobe’s 40

I felt much more confident about the Pacers going into their showdown with the Lakers at the Staple Center after their solid loss (if there is such a thing) against the Spurs several days ago. The offense was still rocky but it showed signs on improving, as did players such as Roy Hibbert and DJ […]

Pacers stumble against Spurs in respectable outing

I won't lie. I thought the Indiana Pacers were going to embarrass themselves again against the San Antonio Spurs, but they actually put up a respectable effort and led by 17 points before the inevitable comeback, ending with a 104-97 loss. A loss is a loss but at least it showed that the Pacers can […]

David West beast mode prevents embarrassing loss to Wiz

http://youtube.com/watch?v=uzyhCjJqMQQ It should never have come down to it, but a win is a win, even if it was an ugly one against the winless Washington Wizards. The Indiana Pacers somehow managed to squander a 20-point lead in the third quarter before David West activated beast mode in the fourth, scoring 13 of his season-best […]

Pacers splutter against Knicks

Remember when the Knicks and Pacers used to be a heated rivalry? Yeah, I missed those days too. Right now, however, the Knicks are in a different class. One team had only lost one game all season. The other was 4-6. They have Carmelo Anthony, and the closest thing the Pacers have (had) is Danny […]

Pacers back on track by routing Mavs

http://youtube.com/watch?v=QhSpEFsZgJM Things couldn’t have gotten much worse for the Pacers, so it was good to see them get an easy win against a team they have been very incestuous with, the Dallas Mavericks (103-83). Mavs coach Rick Carlisle used to be the Pacers’ head coach. Former Pacers head coach Jim O’Brien is now an assistant […]

Pacers continue to be abysmal as losses pile up

It’s been a pretty disgusting season thus far if you are a Pacers fan, and last year’s miracle run to the second round appears to have been a fluke. Granted, it’s probably still too early to write off this team, but the signs have rarely been worse. On Tuesday, they scored just 72 points in […]

Pacers snap 3-game losing streak vs Wizards

Phew. That was close. In another grind-out game, the Pacers put away the Wizards 89-85 in just their second home game of the season, snapping a 3-game losing streak to improve to 3-4 for the season. The Pacers looked loke they were ready to lose another one for the majority of the game, constantly playing […]

Gerald Green’s defensive lapse halts Pacers comeback against Wolves

George Hill was on fire. A three point play and a three-pointer helped the Pacers tie the game with the Timberwolves at 94 with less than 4 seconds left. On the Wolves’ final possession, new addition Gerald Green momentarily lost track of his man, Chase Budinger. Pass. Lay up. Game over. Pacers fall to 2-4 […]

Danny-Granger-Pacers

Granger out 3 months as Pacers choke against Hawks

A lot of Pacers fans would like to know what the team would be like without Danny Granger. Well, now they have their wish. The Pacers’ leading scorer of the last 5 years has been sidelined for 3 months after undergoing a procedure for his aching left knee. This means Granger won’t play again until […]

Pacers no match against well-oiled Spurs

I’m not gonna bother with a long recap. Right now, the Indiana Pacers are simply no match for the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs are just smoother, more co-ordinated, more efficient and better at both ends of the floor right now, and it showed in the 101-79 drubbing they gave to the Pacers on Tuesday. […]

Pacers overcome Kings in double OT

I was too depressed after the Pacers lost to the Charlotte Bobcats yesterday to write a recap. The same Bobcats that had lost 23 games in a row dating back to last season. The Pacers were sloppy with their passes, took their opponents lightly, missed a zillion free throws, and just got outworked all night. […]

Pacers win 2012-2013 season debut vs Raptors

http://youtube.com/watch?v=NsFlfyvlAHg I tell you what: I was ready to write about how it was a long season and that a road loss to the Raptors in the Pacers’ season opener was not an alarm but a learning experience. Danny Granger is out indefinitely with a knee injury and George Hill is still recovering from hip […]
