Observations from the Pacers’ first preseason game of 2015-2016

I know the preseason is supposed to mean nothing, but it’s hard to not get excited to see this new Indiana Pacers squad with a healthy Paul George, additions like Monta Ellis and rookie Myles Turner, and a revamped small-ball offense that is supposed to put more points on the board.

What does Monta Ellis bring to the Pacers?

The Indiana Pacers are hoping to bounce back from a disappointing 2014-15 season, in which they missed the playoffs -- by virtue of a tiebreaker to the Brooklyn Nets -- for the first time since 2009-10.

How should the Indiana Pacers utilize Monta Ellis?

Of all the changes that the Indiana Pacers made this offseason, none was bigger than the acquisition of Monta Ellis.

Go Get It guys are those types that when the offense looks an awful lot...

Report: Mavs concerned about Monta Ellis' poor attitude

When Rajon Rondo and Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle got into a heated shouting match during a game last month, it appeared inevitable that Rondo would become a problem in the locker room.
