NBA Injury News:
Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill has been playing through a nagging hip injury since March, but he told reporters – including Zak Keeferof The Indianapolis Star – that he’s trying to block out the pain as his team prepares for Game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks.“If you think about it, your mind starts playing tricks on you,” Hill said after Sunday’s 107-90 Game 1 win over Atlanta. “So when I go out there, I just try and think I’m at 100 percent. I try and block it all out.”Hill initially sustained the injury during a March 23 loss to the Chicago Bulls. The ailment caused him to miss the next game, but he returned for the team’s stretch run to play through the pain. He’s missed just one game since then.There was a scary moment in the first quarter of the playoff opener when Hill appeared to reinjure his hip during a collision, but he simply got off the floor and continued playing. He finished Game 1 with 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

Clearly, there is something in the water in Indiana as this is our second amazing slam dunk that we are posting from game two of the Atlanta Hawks/Indiana Pacers playoff series. This dunk happened in the second quarter as Gerald Green rises for an epic slam dunk over Josh Smith: *** Gerald Green dunks on Josh Smith [@CJZero]
The Indiana Pacers announced on Monday night that they will hold a press conference on Tuesday morning.
Move aside Geno Smith and Ryan Nassib. Pacers forward David West showed off his throwing arm by hitting Gerald Green on a buzzer-beating touchdown pass to finish the third quarter of Game Two of the Hawks-Packers series.
With the eighth pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills select David West, Xavier University.
That scuffle between the Warriors and Pacers in February, for all the wrong reasons, was one of the more enjoyable moments of Golden State’s season thus far. To jog your memory, Roy Hibbert and David Lee got involved in a shoving contest, Hibbert went Incredible Hulk on Steph Curry, and Mychal Thomspon clowned his son.
For their efforts in igniting the fracas, Lee and Hibbert...

Sometimes, NBA players just need to learn how to get out of the way and Hawks reserve forward Ivan Johnson will probably learn his lesson after he got posterized by Pacers center Roy Hibbert.
It happened in the first quarter of play in game two of the Pacers/Atlanta Hawks series and well, I’ll let the dunk do the rest of the talking:
