Found March 16, 2013 on Pacers Pulse:
Depressing loss against a lottery team. The Pacers looked like they were the better team on paper and acted like they could turn it on at any minute to pull the game away. Unfortunately, that never happened. Jrue Holiday and Spencer Hawes of all people just killed the Pacers, who unbelievably, still held a 1-point lead heading into the fourth. But the 76ers turned it on and the Pacers spluttered until it was too late. They hit a few big shots to pull a little closer but they never threatened after the half-way mark in the fourth, losing a dispirited 98-91 road game to drop to 40-26 for the season. David West got into some awful foul trouble early in the game which swung things around. Paul George couldn't hit anything again. As coach Frank Vogel suggested, the team was hitting a wall and needed to grind through it heading towards the playoffs.

George Hill Says ‘It Sucks’ Indiana Fans Show Lack of Support Against Top NBA Teams

In small sports-market cities all over the country, it’s not uncommon to see more fans chanting for the away team than the home team.

George Hill Feelings Hurt Because There Were More Lakers Fans at Pacers Home Game

One thing athletes need to understand, is that when a someone buys a ticket to a sporting event, they have the right to cheer for whoever they want to cheer for. The home team, the road team or the cheerleaders. Just because you live in a city, doesn’t require you to be a fan of that team. Don’t blame the fans for your loss, blame yourself. The Atlanta Hawks had no hometown support...

Sixers won't have to pay Andrew Bynum's salary this season

If Andrew Bynum doesn't play a single game this season, and it doesn't seem like he has any desire to do so, at least the Sixers are off the hook for his ($16.9 million) salary.According to Yahoo!, the Sixers have insurance on the Bynum investment, and should he not suit up a single second, his contract should be fully covered.

Taking Charles Barkley’s advice, the Philadelphia 76ers should not offer ‘Andrew Bynum any money’

Philadelphia legend Charles Barkley wisely advised the 76ers to clip unlikable center Andrew Bynum in the offseason. The 7-foot, 285 pound Bynum, a snatch who landed in Philly (24-40) as part of a four-team, 12-player deal in August, recently underwent an MRI that revealed he has a degenerative knee condition. “They are in a dilemma now,” said Barkley, 50, who the 76ers took...

Philadelphia 76ers insured against Andrew Bynum’s injury

Sixers president, Rod Thorn, has come out and said that the 76ers, whose first choice would be to have a healthy Andrew Bynum suited up and playing for them this season, have a league-wide insurance against Bynum’s knee injury. An injury than Thorn calls “bizarre”. “There is a league-wide insurance that he’s under that gives you some relief along those lines,” Thorn...
