Doesn’t it seem like Tyler Hansbrough just attracts these kinds of hits? Hansbrough was on the receiving end of a cheap shot the other night in Detroit, where the Pacers had hung a 20-point lead on the Pistons. He scampered up to the 3-point line and a set a pick, throwing Detroit point guard Will Bynum off his path. Bynum, perturbed to have to work his way around Hansbrough, gave him the usual off-the-pick shove — then punched him right in the gut. The eagle-eyed referees caught it and tossed Bynum out of the game, and the NBA has now announced that Bynum will be suspended a game for the blow. Given the amount of random hits Hansbrough takes, however, maybe someone should take a look into what makes this guy attract such cheap shots. Check out the original incident in the video below.

Will Bynum punches Tyler Hansbrough, gets one-game suspension

This incident made the Palace of Auburn Hills look like an amateur boxing ring. And no––I'm not referring to the notorious Pacers-Pistons "Malice in the Palice" brawl of 2004 starring Ron Artest.This time around, it was only Pistons point guard Will Bynum throwing the punches, as he took an untimely swing at Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough with under 9 minutes...

Will Bynum Suspended One Game For Punching Tyler Hansbrough

Pacers. Pistons. Palace. Punches. The only thing missing was Ron Artest and a flying beer cup (such a waste).

Rather than seeing a player dash into the stands after an unruly fan it was one of the Pistons--Will Bynum--giving Pacers player Tyler Hansbrough...

Roy Hibbert appears irritated with water boy

Even up 31 points on the New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert was not all too happy getting taken out of the game. The 7’2” Hibbert was then offered a bottle of water by the Pacers water boy. Too bad it wasn’t Adam Sandler as the Waterboy sitting behind the bench.

Pacers beat Pistons again as Granger debuts

  Yes, the Indiana Pacers beat the Detroit Pistons again, this time a little closer at 90-72, but the game itself paled in comparison to Danny Granger's return.    Granger came off the bench, missed his first 8 shots, hit one, and finished 1-10 from the field, with 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block in 19 minutes.   Worse still, the team's offense looked...

Knicks-Pacers Rivalry Renewed?

The New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers met in the playoffs a total of six times between the 1993-2000 seasons. We all remember Indiana Pacer great Reggie Miller, who was deemed the nickname, “The Knick-Killer,” and oh how could we forget about his 8 points in just 18.7 seconds in game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals. Or even better yet, as Knicks fans may rather...
