    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Indiana Pacers. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads.   Last season: What a start! Oh, things fell apart. Oh, but…

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    On the surface, the Chicago Bulls are about to get out of the first round when they win Tuesday against Indiana. And they will point to their star Derrick Rose averaging 28.3 points per game despite all the defensive attention. But the eight-seed Pacers have exposed some questions about the Bulls. Specifically, just how tough…

  3. Pacers Darren Collison says he thinks he can play Thursday

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Indiana has played Chicago tough. They’ve been in it. Now they head home for Game 3 Thursday night. The question was would they be in it without Darren Collison, who sprained an ankle when he stepped back into the foot of a cameraman on the baseline last game. Turns out they may not have to,…

    According to the Associated Press, Indiana Pacers starting guard Darren Collison “expects to play” in game three of the Pacers-Bulls series. Collison suffered a sprained ankle in the second quarter of Monday’s game, and missed the rest of the game. Collison recorded 17 points and 9 assists in game one, and recorded eight points and…

    As if things were not challenging enough in this series for the Indiana Pacers…. Late in the second quarter the Pacers starting point guard Darren Collison rolled his ankle when he stepped on the foot of a camera man out of bounds along the baseline in what was a fluke accident. Collison sat out the rest…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Cavaliers almost won one. Almost.

    Pacers Cavaliers Basketball

    What you missed while thinking about every move Nicolas Cage ever made… Pacers 117, Cavaliers 112: And we are at 22 losses in a row — but it was so, so close. This game was tied at 110-110 with just over a minute left. First the Pacers’ Darren Collison knocked down a three pointer. After…

  8. Pacers Jim O’Brien doesn’t think Roy Hibbert is having a good season

    Dec 14, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Phoenix Suns

    The best coaches know how to pick their spots. When to praise, when to criticize, when to ride the hot hand of guys off the bench and when to get the starters back in to keep a run going. Honestly, the last couple days I have no idea what Indiana’s Jim O’Brien is thinking. None.…

  9. Indiana’s settled point guard situation, not so settled

    Dec 13, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Darren_Collison

    Darren Collison was the guy. Indiana needed an up-tempo point guard to run Jim O’Brien’s up-tempo offense, so they went out and got the highly-coveted Collison out of New Orleans. Except that during crunch time, T.J. Ford has been getting the minutes for the Pacers. Against the Hawks last Friday A.J. Price was the guy…

  10. Pacers do the expected, pick up third-year options on Collison, Hansbrough

    Oct 18, 2010, 11:21 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Amir Johnson

    The Pacers are counting on Darren Collison and Tyler Hansbrough to be part of the future in Indiana, so picking up the third year of their rookie contracts are no brainers. That’s just what the Pacers officially did Monday, meaning both players will be part of the team through the end of the 2011-12 season.…

  11. TJ Ford out at least a week with hamstring injury

    Oct 6, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Suddenly, guards getting preseason hamstring injuries is the trend. Guys — just because they are doing it in Miami doesn’t mean you have to. T.J Ford will be out at least a week with a hamstring injury, according to the Indianapolis Star.He will not suit up in the team’s preseason opener against the Grizzlies tonight.…

  12. T.J. Ford, Jim O'Brien talk it out in Indiana

    Oct 1, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Outside of wherever Larry Brown is coaching at any given time, it’s hard to have a more strained relationship between a coach and point guard then there has been in Indianapolis. Jim O’Brien started then benched T.J. Ford several times. Ford did not execute the up-tempo, pick-and-roll heavy offense as well as O’Brien liked. But…

  13. Indiana Pacers' fun with experimental lineups

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    The Indiana Pacers have a lot of new parts, new things for coach Jim O’Brien to experiment with. That has left Pacers training camp a little like the Island of Doctor Moreau, looking at the reports out of camp. Picture Mike Dunleavy at the two spotting up on the wing while Darren Collison and Roy…

  14. NBA Season Preview: The Indiana Pacers

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:24 PM EDT

    Last season: The Pacers went 32-50, which puts them a step above the downright tragedy of the Nets, Timberwolves, and even the Wizards, but still among some pretty miserable company. Head Coach: Jim O’Brien will again have the Pacers running (they were the second fastest team in the NBA last season), running, running. This time,…

  15. Scout's list of five guys due for a breakout season

    Sep 7, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    A handful of things we know about this NBA season. The Lakers will be good. The Celtics will lose three straight and some columnist in Boston will write them off seemingly forgetting last season. Cleveland will struggle. But it is the surprises that make the season fun. The unexpected. Like the guys who surprise the…

  16. Darren Collison is healing up, eyeing the playoffs

    Aug 20, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Darren Collison has gone from being the guy who backs up Chris Paul to the man expected to turn Indiana’s fortunes around. No pressure. But Collison sounded good with that leadership role in an interview on 1070 the Fan in Indianapolis. I think we have a lot of good things to look forward to, but…

  17. Darren Collison fractures finger on shooting hand, out three to four weeks

    Aug 17, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    Indiana finally got the point guard they needed, and it took just six days for him to get injured. Somebody just can’t catch a break from the basketball gods. Darren Collison has fractured a finger on his shooting hand, according to Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. The good news is this is something that…

  18. Danny Granger and the Pacers are aiming for another big

    Aug 15, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    The Indiana Pacers already made quite the shake-up in acquiring Darren Collison from the New Orleans Hornets last week, but neither Larry Bird nor Danny Granger seem to be ready to accept the roster as-is. From Chris Tomasson of FanHouse: Asked by FanHouse on Friday in Springfield, Mass., where Bird was inducted into the Basketball…

  19. The Flip Side: There are point guards, there are shooting guards, and then there's Lance Stephenson

    Aug 13, 2010, 6:53 PM EDT

    Wednesday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

  20. Darren Collison's plan in Indianapolis: Be like Reggie Miller. Spike Lee watch out.

    Aug 13, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    Darren Collison may be the new savior for the basketball heartland that is Indiana, but he is a California boy. Left Coast. Land of fruit and nuts. He grew up in Southern California and went to UCLA for college. Just like Reggie Miller. He told the Indianapolis Star he wants to bring the excitement Miller…

  21. The Flip Side: Dell Demps' attempt to appease Chris Paul

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    Yesterday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

  22. T.J. Ford shoots down the Pacers' buyout offer

    Aug 12, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    As our own Kurt Helin noted yesterday, the Pacers have taken a new approach in trying to sever their ties with point guard T.J. Ford. Though Ford has been on the trading block since, well, moments after he arrived in Indiana, the Pacers were, as of yesterday, attempting to negotiate a buyout with Ford —…

  23. Who wins in four-team trade? Collison, Indiana and New Jersey big, but everyone really

    Aug 11, 2010, 3:02 PM EDT

    It’s basketball — there is a winner and a loser. That’s the way it works. Except the four-team trade that went down today every team can claim it won, at least something. But just like on Animal Farm where some animals are more equal than others, some trade winners are bigger than others. Pacers: in…

  24. Report: Indiana Pacers negotiating to buyout T.J. Ford

    Aug 11, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Right on the heels of a trade where the Pacers finally get the point guard of the future they have desperately wanted, they are trying to shed the last point guard of the future. The Pacers are negotiating to buy out the rest of T.J. Ford’s contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Possible trade…

  25. Four-team trade between Hornets, Rockets, Pacers, Nets

    Aug 11, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    UPDATE: 1:54 p.m.: Multiple reports now have this as a deal all four teams have signed off on, and it has gotten league approval. This trade happened. 1:33 p.m.: In the early morning hours in Hawaii — while the rest of the state was sleeping or surfing — ESPN’s Chad Ford got up and dropped…
