Joe Robbins | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – Friday night was Myles Turner’s turn to show why the Pacers have one of the more unique big man combinations in the entire NBA. The way Turner did that put a smile on the face of his head coach. Turner’s game-clinching block—his sixth of the night—put the final […]

Andy Lyons | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – It took two weeks into the 2018-19 season, but the Indiana Pacers handled their first late-game pressure situation nearly flawlessly on Wednesday night. Domantas Sabonis kept the Pacers in it on Wednesday and Victor Oladipo overcame bronchitis to make some All-Star caliber players down the stretch. Indiana’s 107-101 […]

Andy Lyons | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – Two of the Pacers’ strengths this season are their bench and Victor Oladipo. Both will want to forget how Monday night went against the Portland. Poor shooting from Indiana (4-3) was the story all night long as they lost their first home game of the season, in a […]

Andy Lyons | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – The anticipation was just a tick below the last time the Pacers and Cavaliers met in Cleveland. No ‘Game 7’ tag was assigned to this game. LeBron James has moved to Los Angeles. And Kevin Love was actually in street clothes on Saturday night. Even with a few […]

Joe Robbins | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – Down one of the Pacers’ most important players, Saturday night didn’t have the makings of them doing something the franchise hasn’t seen in 35 years. But they did. A balanced effort—to the tune of 9 players in double-figures, which the franchise hasn’t had happen since February 1983—led the […]

Dylan Buell | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – Just two games into the NBA season, the Indiana Pacers have already experienced the inevitable ebbs and flows of an 82-game grind. After such a promising opening victory on Wednesday night, the Pacers (1-1) felt the other end of NBA life on Friday night in Milwaukee (2-0). Poor […]

Andy Lyons | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – A highly anticipated Pacers’ regular season did not disappoint on opening night. Strong play on the defensive end of the floor and an improved bench led to the Pacers coasting to a 111-83 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. Bankers Life Fieldhouse witnessed a Pacers’ bunch dominate […]

Joe Robbins | Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS – It’s the biggest area of concern for the Pacers this season.   “The No. 1 emphasis this year is to be a better rebounding team,” head coach Nate McMillan says.   McMillan certainly didn’t love seeing his team ranked in the bottom third of the NBA in rebounding […]
