    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

    The Spurs signed Jeff Pendergraph to a two-year contract in free agency this summer, but Pendergraph will never play for the team — Jeff Ayres will instead. It’s a long and somewhat interesting story, but the basics are excerpted here as a public service announcement to Spurs fans who may wonder what’s going on once…

    When we last saw Sam Young, he was trying to get under the skin of LeBron James as a member of the Indiana Pacers during last season’s Eastern Conference Finals. Indiana’s bench (along with their ridiculous amount of turnovers) was considered the team’s primary weakness last year, and after upgrading in that department with the…

    With Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals long decided and the bench players running out final moments of the Heat’s win over the Pacers, Norris Cole and Jeff Pendergraph were ejected.

    END OF GAME: Miami wins 99-76, they advance to take on the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. Game 1 Thursday night in Miami. Indiana had a fantastic season, they are a young and growing team that will learn a lot from this. Paul George and Roy Hibbert had coming out parties on the national…

    While the defensive minded teams are left (not so coincidentally) and that has some fans missing the flavor of the day in the NBA playoffs (Curry?), there have been some good plays. So for a little fun, here are the top 10 dunks of the second round of the NBA playoffs as compiled by the…

    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…

    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.…

    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…

  10. Roy Hibbert paid Pacers reserves to keep defensive clamps on Bobcats

    Jan 16, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers' Hibbert looks to pass the ball against Charlotte Bobcats' Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    The Indiana Pacers are the best defensive team in the NBA right now. Hands down. Zach Lowe did a fantastic breakdown of what they are doing over at Grantland. The Pacers are long, everybody can defend, their guys move on a string — one moves then the next moves to cover — and it’s just…

    The ying and the yang, the sorrow and joy of the NBA roster cuts…. Just 18 days ago Jeff Pendergraph was a sure thing for the Portland Trail Blazers, a second year center who may not have had a guaranteed deal but a guy the team liked and was getting minutes. With Greg Oden and…

    The Portland Trail Blazers, as you may have heard, kind of have a problem with healthy bigs. Greg Oden, still out. Joel Przybilla, still out. Jeff Pendergraph, now out for the year. Basically, if I’m Marcus Camby, I’m investing in tape. Lots and lots of tape. And the Blazers, apparently, are investing in a new…

  13. Joel Przybilla won’t return until mid-November

    Joel Przybilla Yao Ming

    At present, the top four centers on the Blazers roster are missing time due to injury. Tread softly, Dante Cunningham. Just so the basketball gods can rub it in, three of those four centers options have already been ruled out for opening night, with the fourth being merely probable. Greg Oden and Jeff Pendergraph weren’t…

    After another Blazers center went down in camp, they needed another big body for practice — a guy not likely to make the team but one to run through drills and the like. Stephen Hill, come on down, according to the Oregonian. Hill is a 7’0” center out of Arkansas who played on the Blazers’…
