Pacers G Hill expected to return Tuesday against Wizards

WASHINGTON (AP) Pacers guard George Hill is expected to return Tuesday night against Washington after missing three games with an upper respiratory infection. Hill is averaging 14 points and just under 37 minutes in 10 games this season. He was on the bench in case of emergency in Saturday's victory over Milwaukee. Coach Frank Vogel said Tuesday Hill's infection had improved...

Big Shout, Indiana Pacers, For Taking Care Of Business

Indiana opened the season dragging on the floor, averaging 92.7 points per game in three losses to Toronto, Memphis and Utah. The team-wide small ball movement, mandated by team president Larry Bird, failed in a multitude of ways. The Raptors (41-32) and Jazz (47-34) crushed the Pacers on the glass, and Indiana surrendered 39 fourth quarter points to Memphis. Paul George’s play...

Paul George: I'm not a believer in analytics

The analytics movement has completely swept the National Basketball Association over the last few seasons, and Pacers forward Paul George is going into the future kicking and screaming. “I’m not a fan of analytics,” the two-time All-Star told Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star in an interview over the weekend. “The greatest player to ever...Read More

Pacers’ Rookie Myles Turner Out 4+ Weeks After Left Thumb Fracture

Indiana Pacers rookie center Myles Turner reportedly fractured his left thumb late in the first quarter of the Pacers-Celtics game Wednesday night. Turner left the game at the end of the first quarter and did not return. Turner was the 11th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft and there were hopes that he would be able to help fill the shoes of Roy Hibbert, who was traded to the Lakers in...

Beware, Paul George is back

The Indiana Pacers started 0-3 and even though this isn’t the NFL where 0-3 means you pack your bags and start guarding against injury … it’s not a good look. The first four games of the season, Paul George didn’t hit 20 points. Monta Ellis looked like the guy who wears uncomfortable clothes just because the cool kids do it and he wants to fit in. Jordan Hill was a head...

Pacers fall to Cavs, snap 3-game win streak

Let’s stop pretending we didn’t see this happening. Bruised thigh or not, the Cavs are easily the frontrunners in the East, and the Pacers are still trying to figure out who they are. And with both CJ Miles and Rodney Stuckey missing with ankle injuries, it’s not a surprise to see them fall in a 101-97 loss in Cleveland. The loss puts the Pacers at 3-4, which is frighteningly...

Indiana Pacers headed in right direction after three-game win streak

The Indiana Pacers opened the 2015-16 season with a rough 0-3 start. However, since their dismal showing against the Utah Jazz, the Pacers have turned things around beginning with an impressive 94-82 win over the then undefeated Detroit Pistons on Tuesday handing them their sole loss of the season so far. The win against Detroit was big for a handful of reasons. For one thing it...

PG13 erupts for 36 as Pacers top Heat

Things weren’t looking so hot a few days ago, when the Pacers had dropped their third straight game to start the 2015-2016 season 0-3. That’s just how it goes in the NBA. Less than a week later, the Pacers have won three straight and are right back where they started. But if you told me they’d beat previously unbeaten Detroit — in Detroit — then upstart Boston and then...

Isaiah Thomas: 'Changes need to be made' after Celtics' slow start

Isaiah Thomas finally got his chance to start a game for the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. But Thomas wasn’t interested in discussing the virtues of new role after his team’s 100-98 loss to the Indiana Pacers. Quite the opposite, in fact. “We’re not gonna panic, but at the same time, changes need to be made,” Thomas said, via The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach...

WATCH: Jae Crowder banks in full-court in-bounds pass

On Wednesday night, Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder executed one of the best basketball plays that won’t ever be properly remembered in a box score. With 1.1 seconds remaining before halftime against the Indiana Pacers, Crowder attempted to convert a full-court alley-oop to give Boston two more points before the break. However, what resulted was something he will likely...

Pacers fans taunted Matt Barnes with ‘Derek Fisher’ chant

Matt Barnes better get used to fans having some fun with him this season. During the Memphis Grizzlies’ 112-103 road win over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night, the fans at Bankers Life Fieldhouse decided to get personal with Barnes. They taunted him with chants of “Derek Fisher” while he was at the free throw...Read More

New look Indiana Pacers are a work in progress

On Twitter @CrossoverNBA They say Rome wasn’t built in a day. It was built, however. It’s important to remember that sports isn’t dating, so first impressions don’t mean everything … and often, they mean jack squat. The Indiana Pacers hope so, anyway. Indiana starts off 0-1 after a woebegone loss to the Toronto Raptors, entering a season as maybe the league’s hardest...

Why everyone (including Paul George) should be patient with Pacers' move to small-ball

It isn't at all surprising that the Indiana Pacers are being criticized for undergoing a complete change in philosophy. Shunning the "smash mouth" style of basketball that produced three lengthy playoff appearances, including back-to-back trips to the Eastern Conference Finals, and considerable individual accolades seems like a questionable decision on the surface. Why not stick...

David West: I find myself staring at Tim Duncan

After spending the last couple seasons as the veteran presence on the Indiana Pacers, David West is a relatively young player on a San Antonio Spurs roster that has Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. And, per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, West said he’s taking advantage of having the chance to watch a Hall of Famer at work. “I find myself staring at Tim. I have just...

Paul George not pleased with Pacers' plan to start him at power forward

    The staring contest going on between Pacers president Larry Bird and forward Paul George is becoming one of the best underrated subplots for the upcoming NBA season. A little over two months after Bird commented on George’s reluctance to play the power forward position saying, “He don’t make decisions around here,” it looks like his plan to stick the 25-year-old...
