    Fast breaks compiled while watching Pat Riley do his best to re-assemble the 2009-10 Pacers: >> What’s next for Miami? Replacing Erik Spoelstra with Jim O’Brien? If Riles wants another version of the Big Three, Troy Murphy is available to join Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts on South Beach. >> […]

    It appears the Pacers’ opening pitch was just a bit outside. With today’s report, courtesy ESPN’s Chris Broussard, that Stephenson and agent Alberto Ebanks were less than overwhelmed by an opening bid of five years and $44 million – not to mention a movie tribute – it would seem the […]

    In absence of top pick, Pacers hope Hill ready

    The Pacers don’t have a first-round pick in the NBA Draft Thursday night, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t have a promising young talent to develop, and quite possibly add to the mix, in 2014-15. You remember Solomon Hill, don’t you? The 6-7, 225-pound forward from Arizona was the […]

    Pacers report card: Bird didn’t make the grade

    Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of report cards grading the Pacers’ performance during the 2013-14 season and playoffs. Next up: coach Frank Vogel. When Larry Bird returned from a one-year hiatus last June, the idea was to finish the job. It remains undone. In fact, it […]

    Bird, Vogel must learn from mistakes with bench

    This was not a Twitter post, or a talk-show caller’s demand. This was Larry Bird talking: “Put Copeland in.” The response Monday was to a question about how the Pacers might better contend with spread lineups; given the source, it lent uncommon gravity to a thought common to the point […]

    While most of us have been obsessing about the anemic offense, Larry Bird has looked at it a little differently. As the Pacers president sees things, his team’s ability to fulfill his lofty postseason expectations begins with a tighter defense. In a one-on-one interview with Dave Furst of WRTV-6 that […]

    Future can wait; Pacers’ Turner living in moment

    As he prepares for a glimpse into his past, Evan Turner prefers not to think of the future. The present is challenge enough. The Pacers face Turner’s former team tonight in Philadelphia. When he was traded from the 76ers on Feb. 20, Turner was enjoying the best statistical season of […]

    No style points for Pacers in this win streak

    Brunos Blog, Pacers March 3, 2014 at 10:58 am

    Watching the Pacers struggle through yet another surprisingly difficult night against a substantially lesser opponent, it’s impossible to shake the thought: What’s going on here? Funny thing is, the players are thinking the same thing. “After a few of these games, before we’ve looked at the film, we’ve said we […]

    You had to remind yourself this was Evan Turner’s first game with the Pacers. Yes, it was that smooth. Offensively, things were seamless with Turner on the floor, scoring 13 points in 26 minutes off the bench in a 118-98 victory over the Lakers Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Defensively, […]
