Before each Pacers home game this past season, the team invited someone special to Rev It Up just before tip-off at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Come Sunday afternoon, in front of 325,000 fans at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and millions more watching at home, Tyrese Haliburton will rev it up and lead the 33-car field to the green flag. The Pacers’ All-Star […]

For the second consecutive season, Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton is hosting a youth basketball camp in central Indiana. I can tell you from attending last August at the Pacers Athletic Center, Haliburton is very involved. He bounced around from group to group and mixed in a combination of instruction, playing against campers and fun. And several […]

The drawing for the NBA Draft Lottery will be held Tuesday evening inside a secured room at the McCormick Convention Center in downtown Chicago. It’s the night basketball fans worldwide will be watching closely. Who will get the number one pick and be able to draft Victor Wembanyama? Before the Nuggets and Lakers tip-off the Western […]

After being shut out of the core seven NBA awards, the Pacers do have representation on the All-Rookie teams. But not two, as expected. Just one: Bennedict Mathurin. The Pacers’ selection at No. 6 in the 2022 NBA Draft was one of the top five rookies all season so this was likely outcome. For most of the season, he […]

The Pacers own the rights to five selections in the upcoming NBA Draft, which will be held on Thursday, June 22 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Three of their draft picks are set: 26 (via Cleveland, Caris LeVert trade), 29 (via Boston, Malcolm Brogdon trade), 55 (via Cleveland, Victor Oladipo trade). Their top pick falls within the lottery — picks 1 through 14 — so […]

Pacers Center Myles Turner and all 17 Pacer players met with the media on Monday. This was the third straight season players were made available after the season. It’s much appreciated because previously, the final game of the season was the last time to talk with them. And when they were in the playoffs regularly, […]

Tyrese Haliburton had an All-Star season. He picked up where he left off last season, having played in all 26 games with the Pacers after being acquired midseason. This season is different though. He’s settled in. He knows his place within the organization and the Pacers know exactly what he can do and how he can […]

Almost one year ago, longtime NBA head coach Doc Rivers had something on his mind to begin his pre-game talk with reporters while the Philadelphia 76ers were in Indianapolis. “We’re gonna talk about Mike Woodson first and the job he did here in Indiana was phenomenal,” he said with a smile. “OK, now we can go ahead. I just had […]

As you’re watching another Pacers game without Tyrese Haliburton, you’re probably thinking what I’m thinking: this is a very, very different team without No. 0 on the court. Not nearly as productive, organized, free-flowing or fun. They look like a shell of themselves when he’s not in uniform. Because Haliburton has changed everything. And it’s not just […]

George Hill and James Johnson carried Mathurin off the court Thursday in a win over the Houston Rockets. Pacers lottery pick Bennedict Mathurin was determined to play all 82-games this season. Only he and Buddy Hield had played in each of the first 67 Pacers games this season. That streak, however, is expected to end after Mathurin rolled his […]
