Pacers welcome George Hill back with solid win over Pelicans

After missing the first 28 games of the season with a knee contusion, an admittedly unconditioned George Hill returned for the Pacers off the bench to lead the team with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists on 5-8 shooting in just 21 minutes. Most importantly, the Pacers managed to produce a solid win over a solid team, downing the Anthony Davis-led New Orleans Pelicans 96-84. Hill’s...

Streaky Miles propels Pacers over Timberwolves

The struggling Indiana Pacers will take any win they can get these days, and they did so tonight against the cellar-dwelling Minnesota Timberwolves. It wasn’t easy, however, as the Pacers needed just about each one of CJ Miles’s 28 points to eke out the 100-96 victory. Miles, as streaky as ever, was 10-18 from the field, including 4-11 from three-point range. He also hit 4 of...

Pacers Pulse is back, but the Pacers’ pulse is weak

I won’t bore you with why I haven’t posted for about three weeks, but it was probably for the best given how tragic the Indiana Pacers have been throughout this stretch. My last post came after the Pacers overcame the Orlando Magic at home on Nov. 28. From that point on they would go lost eight straight games over a brutal part of the schedule that included five road games and...

David West and CJ Watson return as Pacers roll Magic

Yeah baby. David West shows he’s still got it. Returning from an ankle injury that had kept him out of every game this season, West had a very solid 18. 6 and 4 stat line in boosting the Pacers past the Magic, 98-85. CJ Watson was also back to play his first game, and he made an impact with 9 points and 4 assists in 18 minutes without a miss. Leading the way was Rodney Stuckey...

Pacers compete against Spurs after beating Mavs

It was a massive surprise to me that the Pacers were able to beat the Mavs in Dallas. I thought it would be a damn miracle if they manage to beat the Spurs in San Antone. Of course, they didn’t, but they almost made me believe they could. The Pacers had led most of the first half and most of the way until the fourth, when the Spurs proved again why they are the defending champs...

Pacers get crushed by Suns at home as injuries reappear

Injuries or not, the outcome of this one was never really in doubt. The Indiana Pacers just don’t match up well against the Phoenix Suns. Without Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson and CJ Miles, they don’t really stand a chance. And with Roy Hibbert and Rodney Stuckey injurying themselves during the game, you end up with the 106-83 blowout we had tonight. No big...

Solomon Hill tip at buzzer stuns Lance, Hornets

Take that, Lance Stephenson! Bet Born Ready was not ready for the injury-depleted Indiana Pacers to have a better record than his Charlotte Hornets, regardless of how early it is in the season. And yet, after the Pacers nipped the Hornets, 88-86, the reality is now that Indiana (5-7) have a better record than Charlotte (4-8). It almost never happened. On the last play of the game...

Pacers stun Rose-less Bulls in Chicago

Well there you go. Shortly after I posted about how the Pacers are going to have some nights where the effort will be enough to overcome the talent gap, they go right into Chicago and outwork the Bulls for a 99-90 victory. Yes, the Bulls were without Derrick Rose, but the Pacers were without Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson, CJ Miles and Rodney Stuckey, That’s still...

The Two Faces of November

That’s what happens when your team is decimated by injuries. They fight hard, and on some nights it’s enough, and on others, when the effort is not there, they get smashed. Exhibit A, the Indiana Pacers over the last couple of games. First up, they head to Miami after snapping a 6-game losing streak against Utah, and shock everyone by downing the Heat 81-75 in impressive fashion...

Pacers overcome Jazz, snap 6-game losing streak

Remember the time when everyone thought AJ Price was a nice guy, but not good enough to be a third-string guard for a championship contender? Well he’s become the Pacers’ savior now. Signed on Nov. 6 to fill up all the holes in the Pacers’ decimated roster — and only after plans to sign Gal Mekel were dumped due to visa problems — Price carried the team down the stretch...

Pacers suffer 6th consecutive loss as Hibbert injured

This has to be a joke, right? The last remaining healthy starter on the Pacers’ roster, Roy Hibbert, played only 11 minutes because of a bruised knee suffered in the first quarter when he tried to set a screen for a teammate. Now the Pacers are without Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson, CJ Miles, Rodney Stuckey and Roy Hibbert. That’s all five projected starters...

Pacers fall to Celtics for 5th straight loss

It’s getting laughable now. Having already lost Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson and Rodney Stuckey to injuries, the Pacers are also now without CJ Miles. That’s arguably 6 of the team’s top 7 players. And all they’ve got in return is…AJ Price! That’s right, the former Pacer has been re-signed because Gal Mekel’s visa was too troublesome and the team...

Donald Sloan pours in 31 in OT loss to Wizards

The Pacers are still losing, but it’s actually kinda fun watching them being competitive while the tanking process continues. Donald Sloan, the backup to the backup last year, has been forced to play significant minutes for the first time in his career due to injuries to George Hill and CJ Watson (and to a less extent the loss of Lance Stephenson to the Charlotte Bobcats in the...

That’s right, the Pacers lost to the Bucks at home

So THIS is what the Pacers look like when Chris Copeland leads them in scoring every night. The fans wanted to see more of Copeland and they’ve gotten their wish. Since winning their first game of the 2014-2015 season against the tanking Philadelphia 76ers, the Indiana Pacers have dropped three straight, with the latest being an 87-81 home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, the team...

Pacers succumb to Hawks 102-92, fall to 1-2 on season

Another game, another loss. I guess Pacers fans better start getting used to this. The Pacers, like they did in last season’s playoffs, fell behind early, but this time, failed to recover. They got within striking distance in the fourth thanks to a barrage of three-pointers and some great hustle plays from Chris Copeland, who led the team in scoring again with 21, but in the...

Pacers fall to Grizz, 1-1 on the new season

The final score, 97-89, was not unexpected. The Pacers are still missing all their regular starters except for Hibbert, and the Grizzlies are a legitimate dark horse in the tough Western Conference. What was surprising is that the Pacers held a double digit lead in the first half until a 33-14 third quarter killed any chances of an upset. Weird results tend to happen in the first...

Pacers overcome 76ers in season opener, 103-91

First of all, let’s put things in perspective. It’s just one game. It was at home. And it was against the young Philadelphia Tankers, widely tipped to be one of the worst teams in the league this season. But hey, a win is a win, and considering the spate of bad luck to hit the Pacers over the last few months, us Pacers fans will surely take it. It didn’t look promising from...

Indiana Pacers 2014-2015 Season Preview: Let the Tanking Begin!

It’ll be up to these 3 to pick up the slack This, Pacers fans, is not good. It hasn’t been good for a while, not since January/February, when the Pacers morphed from the best team in the NBA into a complete mess that staggered into the playoffs and meandered through the first two rounds of the playoffs before barely putting up a fight against the Miami Heat. Coach Frank Vogel...

Cavaliers and Thunder highlight most in-demand games for Pacers tickets

The Indiana Pacers were a title contender a year ago, but this year could end up being quite different. Paul George is likely lost for the season due to a broken leg, while the Pacers didn’t do enough to get better elsewhere on the roster. Larry Bird and the Indiana brass claim that won’t keep them from making another deep run in the East, but only time will tell for sure what...

Silver linings from Paul George’s injury

I don’t have a stomach for these types of things. I only saw it once, and once was enough. And my guess is that once was enough for most people. Which is why I can only imagine what Paul George was feeling lying there on the floor of the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, seeing his leg twisted in a way no leg should ever be, with the horror written plainly across the faces...

Dissecting Lance Stephenson’s Departure from the Pacers

The immediate feeling was one of shock (“What?”). Then betrayal (“How could he?”). Then anger (“You bastard!”). Then denial (“We’re better off without him anyway”).  That was how I was after finding out that the Indiana Pacers’ top priority for the summer, Lance Stephenson, is not coming back to the team after accepting a 3-year, $27-million deal (player option...

Intriguing offseason for Pacers after disappointing finish

If you had said before the season began that the Indiana Pacers would finish with 56 wins, capture the East’s top seed and make the conference finals for the second consecutive year before losing in 6 to the Miami Heat, I think most Pacers fans would not be disappointed. Not necessarily happy, though no one would be in tears. But after the way the last three or four months have...

PG explodes for 37 as Pacers barely edge foul-prone LeBron, Heat

Let’s be honest: the Indiana Pacers should be on vacation right now. Despite being in an elimination game at home against the Heat, who were without Chris Andersen (again) and an “iffy” Ray Allen, the Pacers played horrible, stinky basketball for most of the first half. It was the type of embarrassing stuff we saw at times against the Hawks in round 1 and against the Wizards...

4 Thoughts on Pacers’ game 4 loss

It’s almost too depressing to write about how the Pacers performed in game 4, getting pounded from the outset, getting down by as much as 22, and generally not competing on their way to a 102-90 loss that puts them in a 1-3 hole heading back to Indiana. They have now lost 3 in a row and will need to win 3 in a row against the two-time defending champs to make the Finals. Stranger...

Pacers waste hot start, bench play, lose 99-87 to fall down 2-1

It was looking good for a little while in the first quarter when the Indiana Pacers got off to a hot 17-4 start. But complacency and a few frustrating whistles helped Miami get back into it to be down just 21-14 at the end of the first quarter. In the second, the Pacers bench stepped up, with Luis Scola finally making a contribution and CJ Watson and Ian Mahinmi both doing solid...
