Los Angeles Lakers
INDIANAPOLIS -- It took nearly a full half before the Indiana Pacers realized they were playing one of the worst teams in the NBA. When they did wake, the Pacers were off and running. The Pacers used an 18-0 run that stretched from the end of the second quarter into the third quarter to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-81 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday night. Paul George led the Pacers (11-11) with 27 points. Guard C.J. Miles followed up his strong game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday by scoring 28 points. The Pacers started sluggish and acted like the team that played the night before and had to travel to its next destination during the majority of the first half. Miles took advantage of the Pacers' lackadaisical defense. Entering the game averaging 8.4 points, he scored 16 of his team's first 18 points. Miles scored 16 points on 4-of-7 shooting to help the Cavaliers have a 29-25 lead at the end of the first quarter. The rest of the Cavaliers s...
BEST OF MAXIM
It's not often that we get a family affair in the NBA but for this season at least, the Indiana Pacers have two Hansbrough brothers on their team.During tonight's Pacers/Cavaliers game, Ben Hansbrough unfortunately got hit in the face by Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson.Watch as his older brother Tyler comes to aid and starts to jaw with Thompson:
In case you didn't know, Tyler Hansbrough's little brother Ben plays on the Pacers. He recently got promoted to back-up point guard over D.J Augustin after Augustin struggled for the first month in limited minutes. Bens getting an opportunity to show the Pacers that he can co-exist not only with this second unit but his brother as well.
Ben is lucky that out of all...
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 their game against the Cavaliers...
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.
Police ticketed the driver of the other vehicle for driving without a license, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.
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 in the league. The question was whether the Pacers could...
Roy Hibbert sad face
Background: Roy Hibbert, he of the Indiana Pacers, said to Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears that he wil be the best center in the NBA one day. Apparently, this means he does not realize that Dwight Howard, Marc Gasol, Greg Monroe, Anderson Varejao, Andrew Bynum, Kevin Love, Brook Lopez, Al Horford, etc. are all centers in the NBA right now and are pretty...
The Indiana Pacers have both the Hansbrough brothers?? Honestly I had no idea. Anyway, the Pacers beat the Cavaliers last night 96-81 and little brother Ben Hansbrough took an elbow to the face from forward Tristan Thompson. Big bro Tyler didn't like that and got up in Thompson's face and had a few words for him. After a few seconds of screaming the two were separated...

Indiana used an 18-0 run that stretched from the end of the second quarter into the third quarter to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-81 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday...
Apologies to all for no contest yesterday, but we are back online today with another giveaway. Ericj_d was the winner of Monday’s giveaway. Cavalier fans everywhere were the winner last night though. Great game by Kyrie and CJ Miles.
To celebrate that win, we’re going with another Cavalier themed prize pack today.
Just a reminder how the giveaway works. For the next 11 weekdays...
Unfortunately Kyrie Irving didn’t do so well on his test.
CJ Miles came into this game picking up right where he left off. He scored 11 of the Cavaliers first 13 points and the Cavs bench played the best quarter of their season in the 2nd quarter. The Cavaliers were up 54-38 with about 4 minutes left in the first half. It looked like the Cavaliers would be cruising to another win...
CLEVELAND -- It hasnt felt this good in these parts for quite some time.
Oh, the Cavaliers 100-94 win over the Lakers on Tuesday was just one game. And no one is trying to hide the fact the Cavs are 5-17, or that the Lakers are an absolute mess.
But this, folks, was NBA basketball at its finest.
It was Kyrie Irving returning and displaying a more remarkable performance than most...
