Indiana Pacers

  1. Pacers make their case in win over Celtics, but it’s ugly

    Jan 6, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    This is the kind of game you end up with if you play a condensed season after a drastically shortened training camp. Which is to say — UGLY. But if you can look at it for a second you see one thing: These Pacers are legitimate. Maybe not Miami and Chicago legitimate, but to be…

  2. Heat’s LeBron James, Dwyane Wade both out Thursday

    Jan 5, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    And the Big 3 are down to one tonight. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are both going to sit out Thursday night’s Heat game against the Hawks, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. We’re weighing everything, the schedule ahead, rest, how much treatment we can do and what the recovery time will be,” coach…

  3. Roy Hibbert wants you to know he is not Hasheem Thabeet

    Jan 5, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert — he of “Parks & Rec” fame, who also happens to be the starting center for the Indiana Pacers — has pet peeves, just like the rest of us. And not just people who don’t use their turn signals. He was on 790 The Ticket in Miami and was asked what is the…

  4. LeBron James rolls ankle, questionable for Thursday

    Jan 5, 2012, 2:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Miami could be without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on Thursday in Atlanta. Wade was already day-to-day with a sore foot then late in the third quarter Wednesday night LeBron rolled his ankle when he inadvertently stepped on the foot of Paul George during a fast break. LeBron stayed in the game for another seven…

  5. Deron Williams, Kris Humphries out for Nets vs. Celtics

    Jan 4, 2012, 12:08 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    We knew it was going to be a few more days before fans could get back to booing Kris Humphries due to a sprained shoulder, but now another key Nets player will be out Wednesday against Boston. Deron Williams will sit out the game due to sore ribs, reports Stefan Bondy at the New York…

  6. Dwyane Wade questionable for Wednesday with sore foot

    Jan 4, 2012, 11:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade drives past Hawks center Horford and center Collins to score in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Dwyane Wade has been playing through a sore foot and rather than risk it getting worse he may sit out the team’s Wednesday night contest against the Pacers. That is what coach Erik Spoelstra told the media Wednesday as Wade had skipped the morning shootaround because of the injury. Here is what Spoelstra said, via…

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Dwyane Wade is eating Chlorophyll as part of his new diet. Seriously. Is Zach Randolph’s knee injury worse than the Grizzlies first let on? We…

  8. West brings jump shots, professionalism to young Pacers

    Jan 3, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Jonas Jerebko, David West

    The Indiana Pacers are 4-1. Let that sink in for a second. They’ve done it against a soft schedule (something changing this week with the Heat and Celtics on deck), but in years past the Pacers did not consistently beat the teams they were supposed to beat. This year is different for a few reasons…

  9. Tuesday And-1 links, or how Kevin Love = Bill Laimbeer

    Jan 3, 2012, 10:56 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Tim Duncan

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Lamar Odom thinks Kevin Love is the Bill Laimbeer for a new generation. Dennis Rodman is going to coach a topless women’s basketball team in…

  10. Roy Hibbert sought out a cameo on Parks and Rec, would have interest in third episode

    Dec 31, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert eating

    If you’re an NBA fan, Parks and Rec (Thursdays on NBC – PLUG LIKE YOU NEED IT) is a great show for you. It has featured Detlef Schrempf, there’s an autographed photo of Larry Bird on Leslie Knope’s office, and last season, Roy Hibbert appeared in two episodes, being paid to “hang out” at the…

  11. 100 early season observations

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  12. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  13. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EDT

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

  15. David West tells Ray Allen “you don’t know me.” But nicely.

    Dec 24, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    David West

    David West was almost a Celtic, and that would have been a good fit for Boston — a pick-and-pop big who can stretch the floor, a former All-Star who would have given the Celtics depth and another way to put points on the board. But instead he chose to sign with the Pacers. That set…

  16. Tuesday morning one liners (KG is taunting Raptors again)

    RNPS IMAGES OF THE YEAR 2011

    Our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT).

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT.

  18. Grizzlies’ Darrell Arthur suffers “serious Achilles injury”

    Dec 18, 2011, 5:39 PM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    Darrell Arthur came into his own last season. After injuries plagued his first two seasons, Arthur emerged as a legitimate weapon for the Grizzlies. He spent an inordinate amount of time working on his mid-range last year and became the Grizzlies’ best pick-and-pop weapon. When the Spurs decided in the playoffs to pick their poison…

  19. Report: Warriors to trade Lou Amundson to Pacers for Brandon Rush

    Dec 18, 2011, 1:02 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Golden State Warriors

    From Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times: UPDATE II: The Warriors are in the process of trading Lou Amundson, according to a team source. A second source confirmed it is for Indiana Pacers swingman Brandon Rush. Amundson was held out of Saturday’s game vs. Sacramento. It is not official and likely won’t be before…

  20. Now what for the Boston Celtics? It’s not a pretty picture.

    Dec 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    What really matters in all of this is that Jeff Green will be fine and next season will return to the NBA. That is what is important. But Green being out for the entire NBA season following heart surgery leaves the Boston Celtics in a bind. Green was key to their chances this season —…

  21. Celtics’ Jeff Green to miss entire season after heart surgery

    Dec 17, 2011, 11:43 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    We thought things didn’t sound good, and they are not for the Celtics. Jeff Green — expected to be Boston’s sixth man — will miss the entire season after surgery to fix an aortic aneurysm, the Celtics announced on Saturday. The important thing is that Green is expected to make a full recovery. This can…

Ford, Mike Dunleavy Jr. Key Additions: David West, George Hill Best case scenario: The Pacers build on their spirited 1st round performance against the Bulls, seamlessly integrate David West and George Hill into their frontcourt and backcourt, they run a lot of pick-and-pop…

  25. NBA Season Preview: San Antonio Spurs

    Dec 15, 2011, 9:21 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    Last season: 61-21, best record in the Western Conference. But they struggled against big lineups and so drawing Memphis in the first round was trouble. The Spurs were eliminated fast. Head Coach: Gregg Popovich, entering his 16th year at the helm of the Spurs. But he remains as cranky as ever. Key Departures: George Hill,…
