    Pacers know formula but must solve Hawks’ variables

    If misery loves company, the Pacers are not alone. Five road underdogs won Game 1s over the weekend: Portland (in Houston), Washington (in Chicago), Golden State (in L.A.) and Brooklyn (in Toronto). Of course, none of the home teams looked quite as wretched as the Pacers in falling 101-93 to […]

    No shrugging off Pacers’ Game 1 performance

    Under normal circumstances, one bad game could be shrugged off, particularly when it is the first of the postseason. These are not normal circumstances. This is an Indiana Pacers team on the brink of one of the most maddening, saddening collapses in franchise history. All they had to do in […]

    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 […]

    Reserves give Vogel, Pacers much more than a win

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 10, 2014 at 10:03 am

    Whether this move was the last straw for an overloaded team or the first step in the road to recovery, no one knows. Not yet, anyway. But for one night, Frank Vogel’s decision to turn the starters into spectators couldn’t have worked out better for the Pacers. The Replacements produced […]

    Frank Vogel is rolling the dice, and the stakes are high. If this gambit pays off with a recharged team making another deep playoff run, the season will be saved. If it does not, his next exit interview with Larry Bird may very well be his last. By pulling the […]

    Pacers settling for consolation prize of No. 2 seed?

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 8, 2014 at 9:19 am

    Though they trail the Heat by just one game in the season-long quest to secure the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoff bracket, with a potential showdown game looming Friday in Miami, the Pacers seem resigned to their current fate. “I don’t think we’ve played well enough to earn […]

    Whatever word, four-letter or otherwise, that best describes what happened Sunday night, you can rest assured this one does not: Fatigue. Try as they might to pass that off as an explanation for the putrid stench that wafted across the floor of Bankers Life Fieldhouse in a 107-88 loss to […]

    Vogel believes Pacers’ dark times, again, shall pass

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 4, 2014 at 10:53 am

    Once a year, without fail, there comes a time when I think Frank Vogel has become unhinged. It is that time when what I see on the court and hear in the locker room simply does not align with the message being sent by the Pacers head coach. Being a […]

    George, Pacers take step in right direction

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 3, 2014 at 9:33 am

    As the bad shot made good, Frank Vogel turned to the scorer’s table, smiled and flashed a thumbs-up for the inadvertent complicity. The Pacers desperately needed a night like this, where even a miscue could produce a reward. Late in a surprisingly close and combative game, the Pacers were clinging […]
