  2. Frank Vogel not afraid to make adjustments, but the one he didn’t make might make the difference

    Frank Vogel resisted the urge to do anything dramatic and trusted his team to make little changes. It worked.

    Apr 22, 2014, 10:38 PM EDT

    Paul George

    Pacers go on a monster third quarter run to even series with Hawks.

  5. The Extra Pass: Fixing Pacers offense not simple, easy

    Apr 1, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Washington Wizards

    The Pacers offense has scored 84 points or fewer in its last five games. The problems are ball handling and spacing, ones that are not that easily fixed with the playoffs less than three weeks away.

  6. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  7. Luis Scola seals Pacers’ win over Nets with inbound pass off the back of Paul Pierce (VIDEO)

    luis scola pacers

    The Pacers held on for a 97-96 victory over the Nets on Saturday, and used a crafty move by one of their veterans on the game’s final play to seal it. Leading by one with 0.4 seconds remaining, Luis Scola left nothing to chance. Instead of attempting to inbound the ball to one of his…

  8. 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…

  9. Eric Bledsoe to miss at least a week with sprained knee injury

    Jan 4, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Reggie Jackson

    Eric Bledsoe was a late scratch for the Suns in their home loss to the Grizzlies on Thursday, thanks to some swelling that appeared in his knee in the days that followed the team’s win in Los Angeles earlier in the week. A couple of extra days off hasn’t helped enough to the point where…

  10. Pacers improve to 9-0 with blowout win over Bucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    The Pacers remain undefeated after running their league-best record to 9-0 with a blowout 104-77 win over the Bucks. Milwaukee is a depleted team right now due to multiple players being injured, and there’s not nearly enough depth to sustain even one starter being out, much less multiple productive players. Larry Sanders, Caron Butler, and…

  11. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  12. 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…

  13. 5 teams that could prevent the Miami Heat from winning the 2014 NBA title

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    The Miami Heat will open the 2013-14 NBA season at home against the Bulls on Tuesday, after receiving their championship rings and raising a banner to the rafters for the second straight season. They’ll also open the year as the favorites to win a third straight title, but history has not been kind to teams…

  14. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  15. Kevin Love brags about winning “the ‘White Guy’ award”

    Oct 22, 2013, 6:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The NBA’s annual GM survey, analyzed by Kurt earlier today, contained few surprises. Who will win the championship? The Heat, as usual. Who will win MVP? LeBron James, obviously. Who is the best center? Dwight Howard, of course. Who’s the best coach in the NBA? Gregg Popovich, surely. Which player makes the most of limited…

  16. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  17. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Miami Heat

    Sep 30, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

  18. Team talks pressure, more at Indiana Pacers media day

    Sep 27, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    via @Pacers on twitter

    Over the next few days every team in the NBA will host Media Day — media members are invited in to ask questions, watch players get their pictures taken and generally hang around the team. Generally, these are about as interesting as a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting in front of the new Yogurtland. It’s…

  19. Larry Bird says Pacers are ‘all in,’ believes they can compete for a title

    Sep 25, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    NCAA Championship Game: Michigan State Spartans v North Carolina Tar Heels

    The Pacers took the eventual champion Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals a season ago, and reloaded with plenty of reserve talent this summer. In addition to the return of Danny Granger to the lineup, Indiana added Luis Scola, Chris Copeland, and C.J. Watson in order to solidify the bench unit for…

  20. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Last season: The Pacers continued their upward trajectory – missing the playoffs in 2009-10, reaching the first round in 2010-11, reaching the second round in 2011-12 and reaching the conference finals in 2012-13. With George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert, Indiana had statistically the best lineup in the NBA. The…

  21. Derrick Rose says team chemistry will help Bulls compete with league’s elite

    Sep 24, 2013, 8:51 AM EDT

    adidas/BRIAN KERSEY

    CHICAGO – The Bulls are expected by many to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference when factoring in the return of Derrick Rose. But while teams like Brooklyn, New York, and Indiana added talent through trades or free agency, Chicago lost a couple of guys who helped the team make its playoff…

  22. TNT’s Steve Kerr predicts Bulls will knock off Heat this year

    Sep 17, 2013, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The last team to make the NBA Finals four straight years was Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics from 1984-87 — so many things need to go right for you to make the Finals (health being the key) that it’s hard to have it all break for you year after year after year. So expect a lot…

    Dominican Republic's Martinez celebrates after defeating Canada during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship tournament will wrap up this week, but the important part was concluded on Sunday when the semifinalists were finalized. The top four teams of the tournament automatically earn berths to next year’s FIBA World Cup (an Olympic qualifier) meaning Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Argentina and Mexico are one step closer…

  24. Sam Young has free agent meeting with the Spurs

    sam young pacers

    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…

  25. EuroBasket, FIBA Americas top plays from Thursday (VIDEO)

    Martinez of the Dominican Republic goes for a basket against Jamaica's Jordan during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    There’s quite a bit going on abroad right now as both the FIBA Americas and EuroBasket competitions are happening as teams attempt to move one step closer to qualifying for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The games aren’t quite to the point of must-watch considering both tournaments are still in the pool-play rounds,…
