Indiana Pacers (6-8) vs. Los Angeles Lakers (7-7)
There was a time this offseason when Indiana was thought to be the second best team (at least for the regular season) in the Eastern Conference. This was a young team, committed to defense and able to find scoring from just about anywhere.
David West, Roy Hibbert, Danny Granger were all capable of taking the scoring load depending on the matchup and Indiana was a great defensive team.
The Pacers have been without Granger, it is true, but Hibbert has really struggled for various reasons and David West has had to step up and carry the team. He is good, but not quite that good. Not anymore at least.
Indiana has limped out to a disappointing start and sits in the bottom third of the Eastern Conference nowhere near where the team expected to be. The same thing could be said for the Lakers who are still getting used to Mike D'Antoni and what he wants his team to do.
He may be without Kobe...

Although this clip is a month or so old, watching Indiana Pacers forward Miles Plumlee ride a unicycle is awesome on so many levels.Watch as Miles shows off his unicycle skills during a Indiana Pacers fan event:To note, Miles has shown off this skill in college when he was playing for Duke University:
I know, the Lakers still can't win. Even Kendrick Lamar (46 second mark) isn't happy. Things are not going well in Laker land as the Clippers are finally enjoying being the Alpha Male in town. I wouldn't get too worried Laker fans because championships don't happen over night. It's too early in the season to rule this team out. As for the Pacers, this...
I felt much more confident about the Pacers going into their showdown with the Lakers at the Staple Center after their solid loss (if there is such a thing) against the Spurs several days ago. The offense was still rocky but it showed signs on improving, as did players such as Roy Hibbert and DJ Augustin (who both sucked tonight, unfortunately).
I was less optimistic when I found...
LOS ANGELES -- George Hill bided his time, let the game clock dwindle, then calmly beat three All-Stars to the hole to give the Indiana Pacers a 79-77 win over the Los Angeles Lakers in front of a stunned Staples Center crowd Tuesday night. Hill took Metta World Peace off the dribble, then outraced Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard to hit a game-winning, arcing shot with one-tenth of...
Despite getting a 40-point effort from a flu-ridden Kobe Bryant, the Indiana Pacers pulled out a victory at the Staples Center against the Los Angeles Lakers.
With the score tied at 77, Hill took the last shot for the Pacers as he drove past Lakers forward Metta World Peace and put up a lay-up past the arms of Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard attempting to block it:
According to his Facebook page, Kobe Bryant is "under the weather" hours before the Lakers host the Indiana Pacers.
"Laid up in bed," reads Bryant's page. "Drinking a lot of fluids. Trying to shake the aches and chills thru rest, medicine and a lil Bob Marley on the speakers."
Apparently Bryant is a Marley fan, which may be new information on the...
Hey, he loves his job, give the guy a break. This is NBA referee Joey Crawford making a blocking call on Chris Duhon at the end of the LA Lakers vs. Indiana Pacers game last night. The call came with 1:15 remaining in the fourth quarter and the game tied at 74-74. The Pacers ended up winning the game on a last second layup by George Hill. Who Let the Dogs Out, Joey Let the...
The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night, falling back below .500 and they did it in large part to their inability to sink free throws (23-43 from the line), problems shooting in general (31.6 percent from the field), trouble protecting the ball (19 turnovers) and former Spurs guard George Hill.
The Pacers were up one with 35 seconds to go when Hill hit...
During the fourth quarter of last night's Indiana Pacers/Los Angeles Lakers game, Indiana forward Gerald Green was attempting to throw down a baseline slam dunk.Sadly for Gerald, he ended up missing the dunk attempt and to add insult to injury, his second shot attempt was swatted by Lakers center Dwight Howard:
