Indiana Pacers

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

    Mar 4, 2013, 4:06 AM EDT

    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…

  2. Klay Thompson’s dad will cut his allowance after league fine. I’m not kidding.

    Mar 1, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Thompson moves with the basketball while Indiana Pacers' George defends him during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Klay Thompson is 23, a part of the young core of the Golden State Warriors, a guy who already is considered one of the league’s better shooters. He’s still on his rookie deal, so he’s “only” going to make $2.2 million this season, and not much more next season. He’s going to make a little…

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

    Feb 28, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. Warriors’ Lee, Pacers’ Hibbert both suspended one game for scuffle

    Feb 27, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Indiana's Roy Hibbert shoves Golden State's David Lee during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    We knew that Roy Hibbert’s suspension was coming — he threw Stephen Curry to the ground during a shoving match that broke out between the Pacers and Warriors on Tuesday night. Hibbert has been suspended one game, as has the Warriors David Lee, the league announced Wednesday. Lee will sit out Wednesday night when the…

  6. Roy Hibbert apologizes, says he has spoken to league already

    Feb 27, 2013, 2:58 PM EDT

    David Lee, Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert is still going to get suspended. The pushing match between Hibbert and David Lee Tuesday night escalated when Hibbert threw Stephen Curry to the ground. But the damage may be mitigated some after Hibbert apologized and spoke to the league about what had happened. Hibbert said he gave his side of the story…

  7. Stephen Curry breaks George Hill’s ankles, then makes Hansbrough look bad (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 9:12 AM EDT

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There was more to this game than a fight. The Pacers were the better team but Stephen Curry kept the Warriors in it with 38 points and plays like the ones you see above. First he just broke the ankles of George Hill (who made the smart play but ruined the highlight with the foul).…

  8. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kings take Heat two overtimes

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James,

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed…. Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT): What looked like a blowout on paper ended up being the best game of the night. The Kings may deny it was a moral victory for them, but it was.…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: Not Enough Help Edition

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:44 AM EDT

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    No one really remembers the numbers guys get in losing efforts. Those numbers usually seem hollow; they come off as not worthy of mention. Tonight, though, we honor those guys who put up big numbers in a losing effort. Because as those guys showed out and did their best to help their team win, they…

  10. Roy Hibbert ejected in dust up with Steph Curry, Warriors

    Feb 26, 2013, 9:44 PM EDT

    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…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Hot hot Heat move back to top spot

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  12. Pistons’ Will Bynum suspended one game for hit on Tyler Hansbrough

    Feb 24, 2013, 8:07 PM EDT

    Will Bynum

    In the least surprising news of the day, Will Bynum of the Detroit Pistons has been suspended one game without pay for striking Tyler Hansbrough of the Indiana Pacers in the stomach, the league announced on Sunday via official release. The play occurred with 8:39 remaining in the fourth quarter, and with the Pistons trailing by…

  13. Will Bynum ejected after punching Tyler Hansbrough in the midsection (VIDEO)

    Feb 24, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Will Bynum, Jerry Hendon

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Pacers’ second consecutive blowout win over the Pistons on Saturday, Will Bynum was caught on a screen from Tyler Hansbrough. Bynum either didn’t appreciate the contact, or the fact that Hansbrough continued to illegally move once the contact was made, and gave him a little shot to the…

  14. Danny Granger hits one of his 10 shot attempts in return from injury, and his teammates are ecstatic (VIDEO)

    Feb 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Danny Granger, George Hill

    It wasn’t exactly a perfect night for Danny Granger, playing his first game of the season for the Pacers after working his way back from a severe knee injury. Granger missed his first eight shots of the game, but playing against a woeful Pistons team that Indiana had just beaten by 32 the night before,…

  15. Gerald Green finishes high-flying alley-oop over the Pistons (VIDEO)

    Feb 23, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Gerald Green

    The Pacers had no trouble beating the Pistons on Friday, leading by as many as 43 before settling for the final victory margin of 32 points. Gerald Green had little sympathy for his opponent, getting loose on the fast break and flying to the rim to finish the alley-oop pass from D.J. Augustin in spectacular…

  16. Danny Granger to make return for Pacers Saturday night

    Feb 23, 2013, 12:23 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    We are about to see one of the two returns that could make the Eastern Conference playoffs more interesting. Danny Granger is expected to make his season debut for the Indiana Pacers Saturday night against the Pistons, reports Mike Wells of the Indy Star. Granger has missed the entire season with a knee injury and…

  17. Mike Woodson frustrated with J.R. Smith, Knicks in general

    Feb 22, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' head coach Mike Woodson directs his team against the Orlando Magic in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    There’s a lot of frustration with the Knicks right now — they are 1-4 in their last five, the most recent loss an ugly loss at the hands of the Pacers. In those five games the Knicks have surrendered 112.9 points per 100 possession — 9.5 worse than their season average and second worst in…

  18. Trade Rumor Roundup: As deadline nears, lots of questions remain

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:16 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    It is now just a little less than 13 hours until the NBA trade deadline and we have had all of one whopping trade. Which means it’s going to be a very busy Thursday… probably. There are going to be deals, guys we expect to get dealt will get dealt, but there may be fewer…

  19. Danny Granger’s return soon… but not Wednesday

    Feb 19, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Indiana Pacers are one of a couple teams that could be a threat to the Heat in the East, but they need more offense and depth to do it. Which is why the return of last year’s leading scorer Danny Granger could be huge. That return will be soon, likely this week, but not…

  20. With CP3, Durant leading the way West wins tight All-Star Game

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

  21. Players explain dunks they had ready in case they advanced to the final round of the Dunk Contest

    Feb 17, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Gerald Green

    HOUSTON — Only two contestants out of the field of six advanced to the final round of the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday, and Terrence Ross and Jeremy Evans were the ones who earned their way there to get a shot at this year’s title. That means we had other capable dunkers who had to…

  22. Three best dunks of All-Star Dunk Contest

    Feb 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This isn’t a dunk contest that is going to go down in history with the greats. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fan. It was up and down, plenty of misfires and missed dunks no doubt. But there were some jaw dropping moments, too. Terrence Ross won because he had a few of them. Then there…

  23. Raptors’ Ross wins dunk contest with Toronto tributes

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Toronto’s own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy. It all worked.…

  24. Dunk contest contestants discuss plans for All-Star Saturday night

    Feb 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    gerald green cupcake

    HOUSTON — In advance of the main event of All-Star Saturday night, the participants had some thoughts on the overall aesthetics of the Slam Dunk Contest, and argued over who the actual favorite is to take home the trophy in 2013. Kenneth Faried, he of the Rising Stars MVP performance on Friday, seemed to be…

  25. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Break up the Raptors, that’s four straight wins

    Feb 14, 2013, 8:35 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Johnson and Gay defend New York Knicks' Stoudemire during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at toys you can buy that would traumatize your child…. Celtics 71, Bulls 69: Man this game was ugly. You knew it was going to be low scoring — two defensive minded teams both missing the point guard that stirs their…
