With the All-Star Break over, the NBA is now entering the final quarter of the regular season and two different races are heating up, the tanking race and the playoff race. With half of the Eastern Conference mired in a race to the bottom, tanking has seemingly blown out of hand. But tanking is a very negative, depressing topic, so lets talk about a much...

The Indiana Pacers' bench didn't provide much in Saturday night's 97-96 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
Danny Granger, Luis Scola, C.J. Watson and Ian Mahinmi combined to shoot just 4 of 18 for 16 points. None played more than Watson's 18:33.
''We've got to figure out something to get a better rhythm with that group,'' Pacers coach Frank Vogel said...

Sometimes players use their heads to win a game, but Luis Scola used Paul Pierce’s rump to win a game. With the Indiana Pacers up 97-96 and inbounding the ball with .4 seconds left in the game, instead of taking the chance of forcing a pass, the heady Scola passed the ball to Pierce’s ass. The ball rolled, time expired and the Pacers won. What a fantasstic play.
Louis Scola made a veteran play to win a one-point ballgame over the Brooklyn Nets.

With the Indiana Pacers hosting the New York Knicks later tonight, New York Knicks guard Pablo Prigioni is probably not going to play.

Indiana Pacers 106, Boston Celtics 79 It was (unsurprisingly) all about the Pacers tonight, from start to finish.
