    Miami Heat's James drives through Indiana Pacers' defense during their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    In their Thursday press availabilities, the tones between the Heat and Pacers were different. Indiana may have lost Game 1 but there was an optimistic “we can beat these guys” vibe around the team. Miami may be up 1-0 but there was more of a “that was not us, we can play a lot better”…

  2. Roy Hibbert believes Shane Battier’s knee to his groin in Game 1 was intentional

    May 23, 2013, 7:01 PM EST

    Shane Battier, Roy Hibbert

    Late in the first quarter of the Heat’s overtime Game 1 win over the Pacers, Shane Battier drove into the lane and challenged Roy Hibbert on a layup attempt. Battier’s form was more than a little unorthodox as he went up for the shot, leading with his right knee that caught Hibbert squarely below the…

  3. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  4. Chris Andersen complements Heat’s Big Three so well

    May 23, 2013, 2:39 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    For the 145th time since they joined forces in Miami, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh finished as the Heat’s top three scorers. For the first time in the 2013 calendar year, the fourth-leading scorer – Chris Andersen – scored more than 15 points. It’s been much less of a concern that many expected…

  5. LeBron’s triple-double, game-winner in overtime lead Heat to Game 1 win over Pacers

    May 23, 2013, 1:16 AM EST

    Miami Heat's James drives through Indiana Pacers' defense during their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    The Pacers gave the Heat all they wanted in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but in the end, the game’s best player — along with some questionable coaching strategy down the stretch — was too much for Indiana to overcome. LeBron James finished with a triple-double line of 30 points, 10 rebounds, and…

  6. Pacers’ Paul George hits the three to send Game 1 vs. Heat into overtime (VIDEO)

    May 22, 2013, 11:50 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers' George shoots over Miami Heat's Allen during their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    At the beginning of this possession, it looked like Paul George of the Pacers made a huge mistake by not raising up for the shot when he first received the ball at the top of the arc. As the seconds ticked away and with the Pacers down three, things seemed to be breaking down to…

  8. Report: Clippers (read: Chris Paul) have eyes on free agent David West

    May 21, 2013, 11:43 AM EST

    David West

    Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and… David West? What could go wrong? David West has been a rock-solid veteran big man for the Pacers this season and has talked repeatedly about how much he loved playing there this year. But the NBA is a business and West is an unrestricted free agent this summer. Teams are…

  9. Pacers advance to the Eastern Conference Finals with Game 6 win over Knicks

    May 19, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    The Pacers sent all five members of the starting lineup to the podium for the postgame press conference following their 106-99 Game 6 win over the Knicks, which goes a long way in telling the story of how they were able to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. The team defensive effort that Indiana exhibits…

  10. Preview: Knicks try to continue longshot comeback in Indiana

    May 18, 2013, 7:01 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    By winning Game 5 against the Pacers, the Knicks have turned their series. After it seemed Indiana had a decided advantage, each remaining game is basically a tossup. Both teams could make arguments for why they have the upper hand in Game 6 tonight: In the Pacers’ favor: The Knicks are 0-4 at Indiana this…

  11. George Hill injury jeopardizes Pacers’ identity

    May 17, 2013, 2:55 PM EST

    George Hill, Roy Hibbert, D.J. Augustin

    The puzzle pieces have changed, but the picture of the sailboat they form has not. Under Frank Vogel, the Pacers have relied heavily on their starters. Between them, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert excel in all areas of the court, offensively and defensively, and really balance each other. But…

  12. Small ball, no George Hill, enough for Knicks to win, stave off elimination

    May 16, 2013, 11:37 PM EST

    New York Knicks' Chris Copeland celebrates a basket in the second half with his teammate Carmelo Anthony during the Knicks' 85-75 win over the Indiana Pacers' in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series in New York

    The Knicks didn’t solve the Pacers defense Thursday night. New York made some good little runs — with George Hill out for Indiana Raymond Felton was getting into the lane and making things happen more often, plus Chris Copeland showed why he should get more run — but overall the Knicks scored a pedestrian 85…

  13. Knicks predictably drop Game 4 to Pacers, fall behind 3-1

    May 14, 2013, 10:28 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    George Hill tried to call timeout as he was falling out of bounds, but the official didn’t realize and instead called a foul Amar’e Stoudemire, who protested to no avail. Sorry, Knicks, nobody is stopping this runaway series – at least not since Frank Vogel made that mistake in Game 2. The Pacers beat New…

  14. LeBron James, Joakim Noah headline NBA All-Defensive team

    May 13, 2013, 2:26 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    If you were anchoring your defense with one center in the NBA right now who would it be? For the past few years the answer was Dwight Howard, he was the perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate (voted on by the media) and NBA All-Defensive First Team, voted on by the coaches. But if…

  15. How do the Knicks rebound from this?

    May 11, 2013, 11:43 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert smiles while running down court after a Pacers score during the second half of an NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game versus the New York Knicks in Indianapolis

    Tyson Chandler slowed to let a potential defensive rebound bounce in front of him. Seeing an opportunity, Tyler Hansbrough surged from behind and knocked the ball off Stoudemire as Hansbrough fell out of bounds. The ball bounced off Chandler and over the baseline, and though it next hit the knee of Hansbrough, who was then…

  16. Knicks’ J.R. Smith fined $5,000 for flop against Pacers

    May 10, 2013, 1:36 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Five

    You want to know why guys flop? It works. It worked here for J.R. Smith in Game 1 between the Pacers and Knicks. He got the call. On Friday he also got a $5,000 fine for the flop, the league announced. In the fourth quarter of that game, Smith is trying to follow Lance Stephenson over…

  17. Pacers collapse in fourth quarter, Knicks win in rout to even series

    May 7, 2013, 10:54 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Two

    It all started with 3:05 left in the third quarter. The Pacers had been on a 10-4 run and had taken a two-point lead — Indiana had the momentum. Game 2 of this second round series was starting to look a lot like Game 1, when the Pacers beat the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.…

    May 7, 2013, 3:48 PM EST

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts after he was called for foul against Indiana Pacers in NBA game in New York

    The Knicks are not going to change who they are Tuesday night. After the Pacers beat the Knicks in Game 1 Sunday, when the Pacers size and physicality up front proved a problem for the Knicks, there was some talk of them going big (starting Kenyon Martin at the four and bumping Carmelo Anthony to…

  19. Amar’e Stoudemire practices with Knicks, seems likely for Game 3

    May 6, 2013, 3:47 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire, Marcus Camby

    Just one game into the second round, the return of Amar’e Stoudemire to the Knicks seems far more important. The Knicks need size to help combat the Pacers’ front line, so the return of Stoudemire to the rotation would be a big boost. Making it news that Stoudemire played in a 3-on-3 scrimmage in practice…

  20. Knicks get smacked around in New York press after Game 1 “effort”

    May 6, 2013, 11:33 AM EST

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts after he was called for foul against Indiana Pacers in NBA game in New York

    “Stinko de ‘Melo” That play on Cinco de Mayo was the headline on the back of the New York Post on Monday morning after the Indiana Pacers beat the Knicks handily in Game 1. In Madison Square Garden. Anthony fell back on the effort card. “You take out the X’s and O’s, they flat-out played…

  21. Surprisingly it’s Pacers offense that is too much for Knicks in Game 1

    May 5, 2013, 7:34 PM EST

    David West, Roy Hibbert

    A lot of the focus in the Indiana vs. New York series was strength on strength — could the very good Pacers defense slow the very good Knicks offense? And they did slow it, they frustrated Carmelo Anthony, but the Knicks still got their points. However, it was the other end of the court that…

  22. Ice cold shooting Hawks freeze themselves out of playoffs with 81-73 loss to Pacers

    May 4, 2013, 4:17 AM EST

    Pacers center Hibbert, West and George celebrate as they walk off the court after defeating the Atlanta Hawks in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    It wasn’t pretty. Not this series, not Game 6 where the winning team had an offensive rating of 86 points per 100 possessions (the worst offense in the NBA this season was the Wizards at 97 per 100… this was that bad). But in both Game 6 and the series the Indiana Pacers were the…

  23. Pacers assert themselves (as do referees), take charge of series with easy win over Hawks

    May 1, 2013, 11:44 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    The NBA’s conventional wisdom is that star players are good everywhere but role players tend to be better at home. In the case of the Pacers and Hawks, the entire team persona seems to flip depending on where the game is played. Game 5 was back in Indiana and after a couple dismal performances on…

  24. Critical Game 5 for Pacers, Hawks. If anybody cares to watch.

    May 1, 2013, 7:21 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    What is the standard perception of the Atlanta Hawks vs. Indiana Pacers series? The NBA TV series (that’s where Game 5 will air Thursday)? I’m not just talking casual fans, I mean among basketball people? Check out this exchange with Tony Parker, via the San Antonio Express News. “I watch every game,” he said. “I’m…

  25. Hawks need to match Pacers physicality, get out and run in Game 2

    Apr 24, 2013, 4:45 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks head coach Drew talks to players at timeout during NBA first round playoff basketball game against Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis

    This series is better than you think it is. Which judging by the Internet buzz isn’t saying much. You all think this is vanilla ice cream in a cup. And not the good stuff, you think this is ice milk. This series is more entertaining than that. The Pacers with Paul George and David West…
