    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 regain identity, put Heat on ropes

    Five minutes left. Game on the line, maybe the season. You’re done for the night, you think. All that’s missing from your front-row seat is a bucket of popcorn and a beverage. But then Dr. Jekyll becomes Mr. Stephenson, and the coach looks your way. “Welcome to the rivalry,” Frank […]

    Scouting report: Heat at Pacers

    Pacers March 26, 2014 at 11:17 am

    The Sports Network Scoring has been an issue lately for the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers and defense hasn’t been able to save them. Playing against a determined Miami Heat squad doesn’t appear to work in Indiana’s favor when the two powerhouses collide Wednesday night from Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers […]

    Pacers’ season on the line tonight against Heat

    Brunos Blog, Pacers March 26, 2014 at 9:50 am

    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 […]

     
  • Kevin Durant and LeBron James are battling for NBA MVP honors.

    Real MVP question in NBA: Who’ll finish third?

    NBA March 10, 2014 at 11:50 am

    We can all agree that the name on this season’s Maurice Podoloff Trophy will either belong to Kevin Durant or LeBron James. Whichever of the two you like, you can’t be wrong. Both are having MVP seasons and almost any rational NBA thinker can see either side of the argument. […]

    Feeling Heat, Pacers search for high gear

    Frank Vogel saw this coming. A month ago, as the Pacers prepared to face the Orlando Magic, Vogel told the players Feb. 3 was the anniversary of Miami starting its 27-game win streak last season. The point wasn’t to intimidate his players but to motivate them, to let them know […]

    George, Hibbert among best of thin East All-Star crop

    NBA December 19, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    No matter what, there will be 12 players on the Eastern Conference All-Star team in February. Sure, we might think it’s unfair that the Western Conference only gets to have 12 yet the Eastern Conference will be scraping the bottom of the barrel to come up with a dozen. Let’s […]

    Fast breaks from the Pacers’ 97-94 loss in Miami Wednesday night: >> The outcome validated the Pacers’ outspoken pursuit of the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference as goal not only worthy but mandatory. As we’ve seen before, the fourth quarter of a close game is not something you […]

    Pacers can’t hold off late run by Heat

    It was a struggle for the Eastern Conference’s top 3-point shooting team, but the Miami Heat kept chucking. And finally, those shots began to fall. Ray Allen nailed a go-ahead 3-pointer with 59.5 seconds remaining, Dwyane Wade scored a season-high 32 points and the Heat escaped with a 97-94 win […]

    Wade: Heat has ‘healthy respect’ for Pacers

    Brunos Blog, NBA, Pacers December 18, 2013 at 11:05 am

    As the Pacers and Heat get ready for The Biggest Regular Season Game of the Year II, this time in Miami, some interesting perspective on the budding rivalry between the teams was offered by Dwyane Wade. In an ESPN SportsCenter interview this morning with Stephen A. Smith, Wade said the […]
