Danny Granger Has No Problem ‘Passing Mantle’ To Paul George

Despite that some may have thought that with Danny Granger coming back and Paul George playing at such a high level, that it may disrupt the Pacers flow or create a top-dog battle between the two, it’s quite the opposite.  Granger says he has no problem passing the torch and leaving the Pacers to his younger All-Star teammate. According to Fox Sports: “I think the biggest deal...

Pacers back on track, avenge losses to Raptors

Huge win against the Raptors after two home losses against them earlier in the season. The 93-81 victory was also important because it prevented a two-game losing streak, it got the Pacers a rare road win, and it keeps them just percentage points out of the second seed in the East behind the Knicks. David West had 15 and 11, Paul George 22 and 10, and Roy Hibbert returned from...

Clippers too good for Hibbert-less Pacers

The Indiana Pacers had their 5-game winning streak snapped against the LA Clippers with a 99-91 defeat at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers Won’t Be Pushed Around

The Pacers are playing a form of old school basketball to perfection with an emphasis on playing gritty defence, limiting opponent’s second chances and hitting their open looks on offence.

In case you needed another reason to love Jalen Rose, during the recent Grantland Youtube Channel video, Rose explains what it means to go out to a night club as an NBA player.

Pacers-Raptors Preview

The Indiana Pacers just failed to run their winning streak to a season-best six games. The same thing happened the last time they faced the Toronto Raptors.

Bulls-Pacers Preview
