Averaging just over 2 assists and 3 points a game on 26.6% form the field, all career lows, D.J Augustin has been taken out of the Indiana Pacers rotation and replaced by rookie Ben Hansbrough. Hansbrough is the younger brother of Tyler Hansbrough and has only appeared in 3 games this season for a total of 13 minutes.
Frank Vogel: “We’re going to make a change for the SHORT term and give Ben an opportunity.”

Pacers guard Lance Stephenson is “fine,” a team spokesman said, following his involvement in a minor two-vehicle traffic accident Monday evening.
“He’s practicing today,” said David Benner, the team spokesman.

Roy Hibbert has had plenty of struggles this season.credit: blogimages.thescore.com
Since earning a massive contract with the Indiana Pacers in the offseason, Roy Hibbert has had his fair share of troubles on the court. He is averaging a pedestrian 10 points and 9 rebounds per game, while his Player Efficiency Rating(PER) is still under 15, considered the league average. He’s shooting...
Ben Hansbrough has been elevated to backup point guard of the Pacers ahead of D.J. Augustin.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook displayed his impressive athleticism with a clean block of a dunk attempt by Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert during the fourth quarter of Sunday's NBA game at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The block is more impressive given that Russell stands only 6-foot-3, nearly a foot shorter than Hibbert, who stands 7-foot-2.
JaVale McGee followed up his near perfect play against the Indiana Pacers last week, with an abysmal performance in New York that — for all intents and purposes — cost Denver the game. Well, at least one of the things. Check out George Karl’s reaction:The post George Karl’s Reaction To JaVale McGee’s Play In New York (GIF) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
Roy Hibbert‘s quest to become the best center in the NBA is not going so well. The 7-foot-2 Indiana Pacers big man may be coming off a career season, but on Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder he posted another disappointing stat line with 10 points and six rebounds.
Oh, yeah. And this happened, courtesy of 6-foot-3 point guard Russell Westbrook:
The Thunder took down the Pacers 104-93 on Sunday, but Russell Westbrook did much more than that with just one block. Westbrook met the 7′ 2″, 280 lbs Roy Hibbert at the rim and let him know he was not welcome. Westbrook stuffed a Hibbert dunk attempt with a ridiculous amount of enthusiasm. The result was the loss of all self-esteem and balance for Hibbert.
Russell Westbrook got up last night. He earned the block of the night against Pacers center Roy Hibbert. Hibbert stands nearly a foot taller than Westbrook(6'3) at 7'2. This speaks a lot for the ups that Westbrook has as a point guard. Check out the block of the night in the video below.

What are the Pacers
The Indiana Pacers were poised for great things this season
with many critics calling them the second best team in the Eastern Conference
last year. That was until Danny
Granger’s knee required three months to heel. Indiana since this injury have played .500 basketball seeing
a drop off in their offensive rating with an increase in...
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 hunt and managed to keep Kevin Durant and...
