    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…

    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…

  4. No barbers for Dallas, Pacers handle them easily

    Mar 29, 2013, 12:28 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers Stephenson lays in the ball against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA game in Dallas, Texas

    Dallas missed an opportunity. They missed an opportunity to get to .500 and with that shave their beards that they have grown for entirely too long as motivation to reach that goal. They also missed the chance to get even with the Lakers for the eighth and final playoff slot in the West (the Lakers…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: One streak continues, another dies

    John Wall

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while being jealous of the guy with the best job in journalism…. Heat 108, Magic 94: This felt like a lot of the Heat’s recent wins — start slow, crank up defensive pressure, follow LeBron James to a win. That formula worked again…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Streakers go to front of the line

    Mar 25, 2013, 4:16 PM EST

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Obviously the Heat are undefeated in their last 10 games, but in the East the Brooklyn Nets are the only team with a better than .500 record in their last 10 games. Which is why after the Heat the next five spots on this list come from the Western Conference. 1. Heat (54-14, last week…

  7. Pacers likely without David West all weekend due to back

    Mar 22, 2013, 11:10 AM EST

    David West

    The Pacers have enough trouble scoring points (20th ranked offense), so this is bad news. David West, the Pacers second leading scorer on the season at 17.3 points per game, likely will be out this weekend for two games due to a bad back, tweets Mike Wells of the Indy Star. That would be Friday…

  8. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Clippers lose, fall to fourth

    Mar 20, 2013, 7:59 AM EST

    Isaiah Thomas, Chris Paul

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while rethinking everything you knew about Star Wars…. Nuggets 114, Thunder 104: Denver won their 13th game in a row and in doing so made a statement that come the playoffs they are not to be dismissed. The Thunder went cold for the…

  9. Kobe plays with injured ankle, finishes scoreless as Lakers beat Pacers

    Mar 15, 2013, 10:38 PM EST

    Paul George, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant surprised many by appearing in the Lakers starting lineup in Indiana on Friday, but the ankle injury he suffered on Wednesday in Atlanta proved to be too limiting for him to do any damage against the Pacers. Bryant played the entire first quarter, but went 0-4 from the field and asked out of…

  10. Jeff Green hits game-winning layup, completes Celtics improbable comeback (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2013, 12:32 AM EST

    Jeff Green

    With a little over four minutes left in this game, the Pacers were up nine and seemingly in control of this game. But that Jeff Green layup with .05 on the clock capped an 11-0 Celtics run to win the game 83-81. It’s a play that happened because everyone on the planet expected Kevin Garnett…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: It’s Miami then everyone else

    Mar 4, 2013, 3:34 PM EST

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Not much change at the top of the rankings this week, the Heat can’t seem to lose (the only real shift was the Clippers jumping the Pacers after beating them). The interesting question going forward is how far will the Spurs tumble without Tony Parker for a month. And if they tumble here, do they…

  12. Danny Granger reports “above average” soreness in knee

    Mar 4, 2013, 10:11 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Danny Granger

    Sunday night, in the Pacers win over the Bulls that may have been the dagger shot in them winning the central division, Danny Granger played eight minutes in the first half. He didn’t see the court in the second half. This was the second straight game Granger didn’t see the court in the second half.…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, LeBron, Westbrook spark wins

    Mar 4, 2013, 4:06 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, DeShawn Stevenson

    Some very familiar names on top of the three stars list to NBA fans tonight. Sorry to overlook Chandler Parsons dropping 32 out of the blue, or Carmelo Anthony getting 32 in a losing cause, or David West putting up an impressive 31 against the Bulls defense. But these guys had big games and sparked…

  15. Chris Paul makes sure the Clippers leave with a win over Pacers

    Feb 28, 2013, 10:43 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul looks to get past defending Indiana Pacers' West and Pendergraph during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    The Clippers probably thought they had sealed a quality road win over the Pacers much earlier than they had, getting out to a lead of as many as 17 points with 5:38 remaining in regulation. But as they’ve done all season long, the Pacers refused to quit, and went on a furious 13-0 run in…

    Feb 26, 2013, 9:44 PM EST

    Indiana's Roy Hibbert moves on New York's Tyson Chandler during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Roy Hibbert, your suspension will come down tomorrow. Hibbert and David Lee got into a shoving match in the middle of the fourth quarter of the Pacers/Warriors game Tuesday that quickly escalated with everybody on the court jumping in. It was a scrum that saw Stephen Curry get thrown around like a rag doll by…

    Feb 5, 2013, 12:26 AM EST

    Heat's James drives against Bobcats' Mullens, Gordon and Walker in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    You never know when it’s going to be one of those nights. You know, when regardless of what you do the shots just fall. It doesn’t matter if it’s a twisting drive to the rim, a deep three pointer, or your standard pull up from the elbow. Some nights the rim just seems bigger. Tonight,…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Lakers loss

    Jan 24, 2013, 10:44 AM EST

    Jan 18, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Danny Granger

    While Danny Granger has been sidelined with a knee injury all season, the Indiana Pacers have been forced to find a new identity (or at least clarify the one they have). They’ve evolved into the best defensive team in the league and they have found enough points most nights — Paul George has taken a…

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EST
