    Pacers-Hawks keys begin with Teague

    If you look at the disparity in seeding (one vs. eight) and record (56 wins vs. 38), you might get the impression the Pacers shouldn’t have much trouble with the Hawks in their first-round series. And you’d be wrong. The Hawks present a variety of challenges for the Pacers, primarily […]

    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 […]

    Pacers’ opportunity lost, frustration unrestrained

    Two moments, one early, one late, defined the game, the moment and perhaps the season. Late in the first quarter, Roy Hibbert started to get it going, scoring twice in a row, including a bucket that drew Tim Duncan’s second foul. After a timeout to consider the options, Spurs coach […]

    See if this sounds familiar: An exciting Pacers team built around young stars but with a solid veteran leader and an optimistic young coach get off to brilliant start, become the talk of the league, and become instant celebrities.

    Pacers’ season on the line tonight against Heat

    There is almost a normalcy to it now, all the media attention, all the hype, when the Miami Heat caravan comes to town. The matchup between the Pacers and Heat is reliably intense and entertaining, full of subplots, and frequently carries substantial impact. But there is nothing normal about tonight’s […]
