    Indiana didn’t need its starters to beat the league-worst Bucks.

  3. It’s official: Pacers sign Andrew Bynum for rest of season

    Feb 1, 2014, 11:02 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    UPDATE  #2 11:02 a.m.: It’s official, the Pacers have announced that Andrew Bynum has signed with Indiana for the remainder of the season. Bynum had wanted to play for more than the league minimum (we don’t yet know the details of the contract yet but the Pacers could offer more than the minimum) and for…

  4. Pacers improve to 9-0 with blowout win over Bucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    The Pacers remain undefeated after running their league-best record to 9-0 with a blowout 104-77 win over the Bucks. Milwaukee is a depleted team right now due to multiple players being injured, and there’s not nearly enough depth to sustain even one starter being out, much less multiple productive players. Larry Sanders, Caron Butler, and…

  5. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  7. Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton – not Iman Shumpert – guaranteed to start for Knicks

    Oct 4, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    As Mike Woodson played mad chemist with the Knicks’ starting lineup last season, four players started both every game they played and a majority of all New York’s games: Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert. All four return to the Knicks this season, and three will definitely start again. Sorry (maybe), Iman.…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

  9. Is Mills hiring a stepping stone to Allan Houston as Knicks GM?

    Sep 27, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    James Dolan

    Trying to discern what is going on within the New York Knicks front office and who has the power is a lot like Kremlinology — you try to figure out what is going on based on who is standing next to owner James Dolan during a parade. Or something along those lines. So why the…

  10. Team talks pressure, more at Indiana Pacers media day

    Sep 27, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    via @Pacers on twitter

    Over the next few days every team in the NBA will host Media Day — media members are invited in to ask questions, watch players get their pictures taken and generally hang around the team. Generally, these are about as interesting as a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting in front of the new Yogurtland. It’s…

  11. Larry Bird says Pacers are ‘all in,’ believes they can compete for a title

    Sep 25, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    NCAA Championship Game: Michigan State Spartans v North Carolina Tar Heels

    The Pacers took the eventual champion Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals a season ago, and reloaded with plenty of reserve talent this summer. In addition to the return of Danny Granger to the lineup, Indiana added Luis Scola, Chris Copeland, and C.J. Watson in order to solidify the bench unit for…

    Sep 25, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Last season: The Pacers continued their upward trajectory – missing the playoffs in 2009-10, reaching the first round in 2010-11, reaching the second round in 2011-12 and reaching the conference finals in 2012-13. With George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert, Indiana had statistically the best lineup in the NBA. The…

  13. Felton says younger Knicks better prepared for long season

    Sep 24, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    2013 Yao Foundation Charity Game Press Conference

    Gone are Jason Kidd, Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, and Marcus Camby. In their place are Metta World Peace, Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, and Tim Hardaway, Jr. It’s not quite that clean and simple (Chris Copeland and Steve Novak are gone as well) but the idea is clear — New York got younger. Last season they…

  14. Derrick Rose says team chemistry will help Bulls compete with league’s elite

    Sep 24, 2013, 8:51 AM EDT

    adidas/BRIAN KERSEY

    CHICAGO – The Bulls are expected by many to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference when factoring in the return of Derrick Rose. But while teams like Brooklyn, New York, and Indiana added talent through trades or free agency, Chicago lost a couple of guys who helped the team make its playoff…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Last season: If you’ll recall, New York’s offseason leading up to last year was widely regarded as a joke. Jeremy Lin was let go, Raymond Felton was brought in, and then the Knicks seemed to sign all the oldest players available in free agency. But with the benefit of hindsight, the Knicks did about as well…

  16. TNT’s Steve Kerr predicts Bulls will knock off Heat this year

    Sep 17, 2013, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The last team to make the NBA Finals four straight years was Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics from 1984-87 — so many things need to go right for you to make the Finals (health being the key) that it’s hard to have it all break for you year after year after year. So expect a lot…

  17. Sam Young has free agent meeting with the Spurs

    Sep 8, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    sam young pacers

    When we last saw Sam Young, he was trying to get under the skin of LeBron James as a member of the Indiana Pacers during last season’s Eastern Conference Finals. Indiana’s bench (along with their ridiculous amount of turnovers) was considered the team’s primary weakness last year, and after upgrading in that department with the…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Fox News loves blond female anchors… • That is the Raptors’ Amir…

  19. Roy Hibbert has bulked up to be more of a physical presence

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:26 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Roy Hibbert’s size and physicality in the paint was a key reason the Pacers came within a game of the NBA Finals — for all the things LeBron James and Dwyane Wade can figure out, Hibbert protecting the rim isn’t one of them. So next year Hibbert is coming back bigger and stronger. Hibbert,at 7’2″…

  20. Heat, Thunder have smallest roster turnover this summer

    Aug 27, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and teammates wait to take the court against the Spurs during the second half in Game 6 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Roster consistency is a good thing. Look at the final four teams left standing in the NBA last season — Miami, Indiana, Memphis and San Antonio. Every one of them is consistent. You have to make some moves to get the talent you need, but after that there is really something to be said for…

  21. Pacers’ Copeland well into rehab from knee surgery

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:32 AM EDT

    Chrst Copeland

    It was just a simple scope job to clean out some debris in his knee. But since the Pacers just signed Chris Copeland to a two-year, $6.1 million deal to make him a key part of their much-improved bench, they have a right to worry. They needn’t be. Copeland was supposed to be out 6-8…

  22. Paul George says he is ready to step into No. 1 role with Pacers

    Aug 16, 2013, 12:50 PM EDT

    Paul George

    Danny Granger is back. Roy Hibbert is a force in the paint. David West is a rock solid voice in the locker room. But the Pacers are becoming Paul George’s team. And the All-Star entering his fourth season told the Indianapolis Star he is ready to take on that top role. “This whole summer, I…

  23. Luis Scola accepts role, willing to come off Pacers bench

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    scola-suns

    Luis Scola has reached the “I just want to win” phase of his career. Scola was shipped from the rebuilding Phoenix Suns to the contending Indiana Pacers this summer and will be part of a much deeper bench for the Pacers. Scola (like everybody) would love more time on the court but said he is…

  24. Pacers’ Chris Copeland has knee scoped, out 6-8 weeks

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Chrst Copeland

    Indiana made a smart move in signing former Knick Chris Copeland to come off their bench as a stretch four next season. Now they may not have him at the start of camp as he comes back from knee surgery. Copeland had “arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to remove a loose body” the Pacers…

  25. Lance Stephenson says he’d have no problem coming off the bench for the Pacers next season

    Jul 30, 2013, 11:02 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Lance Stephenson started all 19 playoff games for the Pacers last season during a run that got them to within one game of advancing to the NBA Finals. Indiana reloaded in the offseason with a couple of nice free agent acquisitions, however, and with Danny Granger returning from injury, Stephenson may be better suited as…
