Hawks defeat Pacers 101-93 to take 1-0 series lead

The Atlanta Hawks were the heavy underdogs heading into their playoff series with the Indiana Pacers, but they proved the analysts wrong in Game 1. Indiana didn’t seem to want the game even close to as much as Atlanta did, and it resulted in the Hawks take a 1-0 series lead. Atlanta was out to prove a point, and they sent a message to the Pacers and the entire NBA that they are...

Roy Hibbert: ‘I was wrong’ to call out Pacers teammates

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert says it what was wrong for him to criticize his teammates in late March. “You know, I think that I should’ve kept my frustrations to myself or just in the locker room,” Hibbert said on “ESPN First Take.” “I will admit that it wasn’t the best thing to do. I’ll learn from that, and I was wrong. There are better ways to handle that...

Pacers pull out huge win over Bucks with Copeland buzzer beater

The Indiana Pacers rested all five of their starters tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks, but were able to come away with a huge win.

In the end, the Pacers won on a Chris Copeland floater with just 1.2 seconds left, and were able to hold on for a 104-102 win. The...

Paul George, David West request some rest; Pacers will sit some guys in final games

After the most recent Pacers loss coach Frank Vogel said he thought his starters looked tired. This was a team that put a premium earlier in the season on getting the No. 1 seed in the East and they have faded lately, they have looked mentally disinterested (save vs. Miami) so maybe there is something to the burnout talk. So, with four games left, the Pacers are going to rest guys...

David West On Pacers: “We Look Like Sh*t”

I wonder how the locker room interaction between David West and Paul George has worked out over the past few months. The Pacers started the season off looking like they were going to go undefeated. They now look like a totally different ballclub, and after last night’s drubbing at the hands of the Bulls, power forward and team leader David West put it best when he described their...

Pacers’ David West explains his ‘blame the GM’ comment

The Pacers are sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 23-5, just a half-game back of the Spurs and the Thunder out West for the best record in the league overall. This lofty position wouldn’t seem to warrant publicly trashing an opposing team following an easy double-digit victory, especially when that team is nine games under .500, out of the playoff picture...

Indiana Pacers off-season going according to plan

The Indiana Pacers off-season thus far is going precisely as the blueprint was laid out. They came into the off-season with three priorities: re-sign David West, hire in replacements for the assistant coaches, and solidify a weak bench. They’ve managed to do all three of their priorities in just a matter of weeks from the end of the season. By far the most important task of the...
