Since their slight hiccup at Madison Square Garden in Game 2, the Indiana Pacers have looked every bit the favorite to win their Eastern Conference semifinal clash with the New York Knicks.
As the nondescript Pacers make short work of the Knicks, they’ve not only improved their NBA odds but have also started to make a name for themselves. This Thursday, the Pacers will get the opportunity to close the books on New York once and for all in preparation for a looming Eastern Conference Finals matchup with, presumably, the Miami Heat.
While Indiana has developed a reputation of being a solid, albeit underrated, fringe contender, the stereotype may not be completely appropriate.
On one hand, the emergence of Paul George as an NBA superstar as well as the incredibly deep Pacers offense, anchored by veteran big man David West, has pushed this traditionally defensive franchise from the middle to the top of the pack. On the other hand, consistent, quality rosters are the norm in Indiana. Alt...

Reggie Miller is currently an NBA broadcaster, but the former Indiana Pacers legend says he would like a role with his old team.
George Hill was ruled out for Game 5 by the Indiana Pacers due to a concussion suffered in Game 4.
The Pacers had kept Hill's injury quiet.
Hill believes he suffered the injury when being hit in the head by Tyson Chandler.
D.J. Augustin will start and Frank Vogel said that Paul George could even see some time at the point.
This is not a series for floral print jackets, capri pants or lens-less glasses, and it certainly is not a series for monocles.
There is nothing cool or fashionable about what the Pacers are doing to the Knicks. In the fourth quarter of Game 4 on Tuesday, with the Pacers building their lead in what would become a 93-82 victory to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals...
We’d like to welcome you to this week’s installment of “Eats And Tweets: The Fine Dining Adventures Of Roy Hibbert”. If you recall our most recent episode, the Pacers big man was on his way to dinner in Manhattan when he saw a classy gal relieving herself between two vehicles (Hibbert claimed she was pooping, I’d like to think she wasn’t). After the Pacers’ 93-82 win...
I don’t know what it is with Roy Hibbert, but this guy seems to keep encountering the weirdest things and sharing them on Twitter. The Indiana Pacers center tweeted a picture of a man standing on the sidewalk with a pet goat after his team’s 93-82 win over the New York Knicks on Tuesday.
Hibbert shared his objection with the farm animal being next to a big street with nice cars...
With a chance to close the series up 3-1 and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Pacers did not play their best basketball - not only did they turn the ball over 19 times, but they missed a bunch of free-throws (19-33). Roy Hibbert didn’t hold back when speaking on the Pacers lack of intensity in their 85-75 loss to the Knicks on Thursday night.
According to Fred...
If you aren’t following the exploits of Lakers forward Metta World Peace on Twitter, then you are seriously missing out on some top analysis.
During the Indiana Pacers game four victory over the New York Knicks, Metta decided to constantly reference the 90′s boy band ‘N Sync in relation to the Pacers team.
Don’t believe me? Check these tweets out from Metta’s account:
George Hill scored 26 points and Paul George added 18 points and
14 rebounds Tuesday night, leading the Indiana Pacers to a 93-82
victory over the New York Knicks and a 3-1 lead in the second-round
Reggie Miller has been in broadcasting since retiring from the NBA, but he has been frequently mentioned as a candidate for a front office position with the Indiana Pacers.
"All the time," said Miller when asked how often he thinks about working in a front office capacity. "It would have to be the right situation (and), for me, the only situation I know is Indiana...
One thing that you had to say about Indiana Pacers fans is that they are a dedicated group and one fan who dressed up like a robot is clearly the best thing that I’ve seen in days.
After the Pacers game four victory, TNT cameras found him celebrating the victory and just being awesome:
Pacers robot guy wants you to believe [SB Nation]
Tough break for the Pacers, but good news for the Knicks.
Pacers guard @george_hill3 will miss tonight’s game at New York due to a concussion sustained in Game 4.

This game was so ugly that I don't really want to talk about it. Even Grantland did a write up of how comical it was at times (yikes).
All that needs to be said is that George Hill was out with a concussion suffered against Tyson Chandler in game 5, the Pacers had to start DJ Augustin, the Pacers played horribly and missed nearly half their free throws, and the Knicks escaped...
Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson tried to get high and mighty with New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler late in the second quarter of their Game 5 playoff battle and found out the hard way why Chandler is one of the top defensive big men in the NBA.
As Stephenson dribbled into the paint, Chandler prevented him from "climbing the ladder" with a hard foul that left...
New York Knicks seek to even series vs. Indiana Pacers in Game 4.
