Pass The Pill:
It’s no secret that teams often, if not always, have certain players that probably wouldn’t associate with each other if not for being placed on the same roster. Apparently former Pacer and current Buck forward Mike Dunleavy and current Pacer forward Tyler Hansbrough are among that group.
After the Buck’s 118-109 loss to the Pacers on Thursday night, Dunleavy didn’t exactly have kind things to say about Mr. Hansbrough, and even insinuated that Hansbrough may have sent his teammates Leandro Barbosa and David West after him during the game. This is a snippet of what he told Bucks beat writer Charles Gardner: “He (Hansbrough) pulled something that wasn’t right. It’s too bad other guys had to come in the fray on it…Barbosa and West didn’t play with me. At least they sent them to do the dirty work.” See the full quote here,
Just last month, Dunleavy was responsible for breaking Hansbrough’s nose. Plus, I would really like to know what Hansbrough did that started this feud. Are we talking a bad prank on Dunleavy, or a Tony Parker/Brent Barry situation? Either way, it’s very interesting that Dunleavy was so blunt about the circumstances, and publicly accusing the Pacers of essentially coming after him on purpose.
Do we have any NBA Bounty situation looming? Stay tuned.

I expected the Pacers to lose this one, only because they were due for a letdown after resting yesterday and having secured homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. And of course, the 76ers were out for revenge after losing to Indy in Philly just a few nights ago and desperate to get back into form before the playoffs. So yes, the loss was expected -- after all, the...

The top two teams look familiar — the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat.
The third-place team in the East? It isn’t the Boston Celtics. It isn’t the Orlando Magic.
It’s the Indiana Pacers.
The long-suffering franchise has climbed to a 41-22 record, winning...
Line of the Night: Danny Granger (2.01) is no stranger to the Line of the Night. It’s hard to say what his preferred line was last night. Was it the three-point line, behind which he made 4 threes for 12 of his 29 points? Or was it the free throw line, from behind which he made 11-11 shots for (obviously) 11 points. Granger also had 5 rebounds. His relatively weak WARP score for...

It's official. The Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers do not like each other. At the moment, that appears to have even turned into a mutual disrespect towards the other.
While the Bucks' playoff hopes were perhaps destroyed entirely with the loss in Indiana on Thursday night, Milwaukee didn't go down without a fight. Literally.The first instance happened early in the...
