    But it could help Indiana keep Lance Stephenson

  2. Chris Bosh says league needs to ‘revisit what flagrant foul means’ after losing physical battle with Pacers

    Mar 27, 2014, 9:01 PM EDT

    Detroit at Miami

    LeBron James was on the wrong end of the whistle on two particularly physical plays during the Heat’s loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, and when it was over, Chris Bosh was the one speaking up on his team’s behalf. James has been here before, obviously, and wasn’t interested in having his comments become a lightning…

  3. Pacers make it official: Andrew Bynum out “indefinitely” with knee swelling

    Mar 21, 2014, 6:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Good thing the Pacers were not really counting on him for the playoffs.

  4. Andrew Bynum had knee drained, the amount of fluid surprised him

    Mar 18, 2014, 5:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Well, this is not good. We told you Andrew Bynum was out Monday night for the Pacers (a win over Philadelphia), but now he will be out at least Wednesday (at the Knicks) and maybe longer, reports Scott Agness of Pacers.com. Bynum had swelling after playing 20 minutes Sunday against Detroit… and we’re not just…

  5. Andrew Bynum out Monday for Pacers with swelling in knee

    Mar 17, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Charlie Villanueva

    Andrew Bynum has been back on an NBA court for all of a week, playing in two games, he has averaged 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds a game. He played 20 minutes Saturday night in Detroit. That was enough to lead to swelling in his knee, which will keep him out Monday night against the…

  6. Andrew Bynum looked good in his Pacers debut. Now can he do it again?

    Mar 12, 2014, 10:52 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Andrew Bynum looked good against the Celtics Tuesday. It was simple and clear. When basketball coaches say “you can’t teach height” Bynum showed exactly what they mean — matched up on Jared Sullinger and Brandon Bass, Bynum just grabbed rebounds and made shots right over the top of them. He was too big, too physical.…

  7. Vogel: Andrew Bynum to play for Indiana Pacers Tuesday night

    Mar 11, 2014, 11:47 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    With backup center Ian Mahinmi out for the night, the Andrew Bynum era in Indiana will begin Tuesday against Boston.

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  9. 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…

  10. The Extra Pass: Three things you think about Danny Granger that are wrong

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets  v Indiana Pacers

    In his second game back Sunday, Danny Granger looked good. After battling knee issues that kept him out almost all of last season and most of this one, Granger returned the Pacers lineup this weekend. Sunday against the Celtics he looked like the guy the Pacers are hoping he will be off the bench —…

  11. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  12. 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…

  13. Suns trade Luis Scola to the Pacers for Gerald Green, 2014 first round pick

    UPDATE 2:48 p.m.: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports the deal has been agreed to, and will send Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee, and a lottery protected 2014 first round draft pick to Phoenix in exchange for Luis Scola. “The trade is consistent with our stated plan to continue to acquire young assets,” said Suns President of…

  14. David West misses shootaround due to illness, expected to play in Game 6

    Jun 1, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    This isn’t cause for alarm for Pacers fans, but it is something worth watching. From the team’s official Twitter feed: David West was absent from Pacers shootaround today with an upper respiratory infection. He will play in tonight’s Game 6. (via @pacersdmb) — Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) June 1, 2013 A slowed or ineffective West would…

  15. Lance Stephenson asked to guard LeBron James in Game 4

    May 29, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    No single person can guard LeBron James even competently over the course of an entire game. It takes multiple skilled defenders, along with a solid team defensive strategy just to slow the game’s best player into turning in a below average performance. The Pacers were successful against James in Game 4, limiting the league’s MVP…

  16. Ian Mahinmi’s hard Game 1 foul on LeBron upgraded to a flagrant one (VIDEO)

    May 24, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Ian Mahinmi, Tony Brothers

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Heat’s Game 1 win over the Pacers, Ian Mahinmi grabbed LeBron James by the arm as he went up for the shot, causing James to fall a bit awkwardly as he crashed to the floor. It was ruled as a common foul at the time, but has since…

  17. Blake Griffin with the acrobatic left-handed throwdown against the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers were having no problem scoring inside against the Pacers on Thursday, but the points weren’t coming on the typical high-flying plays we’ve become accustomed to seeing from the Clippers this season. Midway through the third quarter, Blake Griffin changed all that. Griffin elevates and throws it down with the left hand, while being…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers win with offense. Again.

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Al Horford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

  19. Pacers win ugly over Carmelo Anthony-less knicks

    Jan 10, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard Smith guards Indiana Pacers forward George during the third quarter of an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There’s no question that the Indiana Pacers, much like any team in the NBA, couldn’t care less exactly how their wins are acquired. Whether they come due to a stifling defensive effort that allows the offense to barely get by is of no consequence; all that matters is that ultimate result. Indiana took down the…

  20. J.R. Smith throws it down on Pacers’ Ian Mahinmi (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Ian Mahinmi, J.R. Smith

    It’s been a brutal first half in Indiana for both teams offensively, but J.R. Smith provided a momentary reprieve from the darkness with this thunderous slam dunk over Ian Mahinmi of the Pacers. Smith explodes to the rim from beyond the three-point arc, and seems to have the rim in his sights from the moment…

  21. JaVale McGee literally throws it down on the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Dec 7, 2012, 9:54 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The leaping ability of JaVale McGee has been well-documented, yet he gave us another example of his skill in this department on Friday night against the Pacers. McGee gets the ball on the wing, and after a single dribble, elevates and throws it down over Ian Mahinmi — literally. Afterward, he celebrates by … shoveling…

  22. NBA Season Preview: Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 24, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) reacts after hitting a three point shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz  in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Last Season: Coming off their incredible championship season, the Mavericks let defensive anchor Tyson Chandler go to New York in order to retain future cap flexibility. While that decision certainly hurt the chances of a true title defense, the acquisition of Lamar Odom probably buried it altogether. Despite those massive offseason failings, the veteran Mavs…

  23. NBA Season Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2012, 7:55 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last season: The Pacers made moves to become a top-tier team in the East and they worked out. Roy Hibbert and Paul George both took some big steps forward, while David West added the consistent scorer they were looking for and George Hill provided balance with Darren Collison, though the two didn’t work well together.…

  24. The Inbounds: Indiana and defense of second

    Aug 6, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Welcome to the Inbounds, touching on one big idea, story, or discussion point of the day.  It’s fine to think the Celtics were the second best team in the East in last year’s playoffs (factoring the Bulls post-Rose injury). I mean, they finished second, right? They pushed the eventual NBA champions to seven games, and…

  25. Bobcats cut Augustin loose, Pacers sign him to deal

    Jul 12, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    So Indiana just traded Darren Collison then paid $1 million a year more to have D.J. Augustin backup George Hill? Interesting decision. But that’s what the Pacers have done (and got backup center Ian Mahinmi in the process). Here’s how it went down. On Wednesday the Pacers traded Collison to Dallas for Mahinmi. On Thursday,…
