    After internal strife, Pacers take fight to Hawks

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 23, 2014 at 8:58 am

    Whether it can be sustained remains to be seen but, for one night, the Pacers turned their angst inside-out and used it to punish the opposition, rather than themselves. Paul George responded to a challenge from a talkative Jeff Teague to have a huge game at both ends of the […]

    Pacers-Hawks keys begin with Teague

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 19, 2014 at 8:26 am

    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 […]

    Pacers, Hibbert must counter Hawks’ Pero pressure

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 16, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Jeff Teague can cause problems with his speed, Paul Millsap with his versatility and Kyle Korver, of course, with his shooting stroke. But the key to the Pacers’ first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks is a 31-year-old rookie from Macedonia. That’s right: Pero Antic. For whatever reason, the 6-10, 260-pound […]

    Sticking with Hibbert pointless for Pacers

    Safe to say we can eliminate fatigue as an excuse. Three full days off for the starters, a purportedly inspiring victory by the reserves in Milwaukee Wednesday followed by a lively practice Thursday that produced a lot of jibber-jabber about refreshed legs and renewed energy, and the Pacers proceeded to […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Pacers’ opportunity lost, frustration unrestrained

    Brunos Blog, Pacers April 1, 2014 at 9:37 am

    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 […]

    The Sports Network The NBA’s conference leaders couldn’t be headed more in opposite directions. Tony Parker scored 22 points and the San Antonio Spurs won a franchise-record 18th straight game following a 103-77 rout over the reeling Indiana Pacers on Monday night.
