Kobe to the Pacers? RT @SerenaWinters: Kobe on team's identity: "We're going to be smashmouth basketball."

Mark Montieth

Good to see shortened NBA game generated buzz about shortening the season. I wrote on that in late 90's. Pacers then seemed against it...

Candace Buckner

With their 'heart and soul' sidelined, #Pacers turn to Luis Scola. @Aallison25 with more indy.st/1tDwYb0 via @indystar

Michael Pointer

We're sending @Aallison25 everywhere. She is at #Pacers practice today and reports David West will have MRI tomorrow.

Inside Report: Minus their top six players, @Dallas Mavericks fall in hard-fought game to Pacers mavs.com/preseason-game…

Michael Pointer

BTW: Not surprisingly, no sign of David West in #Pacers locker room afterwards.

Dwain Price

Owner Mark Cuban missed tonight's #Mavs-#Pacers game because he was at Indiana University's homecoming game.

Michael Pointer

More Vogel: "“It was a weird game." #Pacers

Michael Pointer

More Vogel on West: "No idea (on how long out). We just know it's a sprained ankle. X-rays were negative." #pacers

Earl K. Sneed

INSTANT ANALYSIS: Minus their top six players, @Dallas Mavericks fall in hard-fought game to Pacers mavs.com/preseason-game…

Michael Pointer

Final: #Pacers 98, Mavericks 93. Terrible first three quarters, but reserves rallied in fourth.

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: Pacers 98, @Dallas Mavericks 93; 19 pts for Jefferson on 7-of-11 shooting & 19 pts & 9 assists for Mekel. #DALatIND

Conrad Brunner

Fun finish for #Pacers scrubs but everything else about this performance was extremely troubling.

Michael Pointer

But again, the big news tonight is West's injured ankle. Hope to hear more after game. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Home team might get out of here with a win after horrible first 3 quarters. All done with reserves except for possibly Copeland. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Sloan scores on a backdoor cut to give Indiana a 95-93 lead and Dallas misses on other end. S. Hill hits one-of-two FTs. #Pacers lead 96-93.

Michael Pointer

We're now tied 91-91, 1:02 left. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Damjan Rudez just hit a 3-pointer and crowd went nuts. Don't think it was just because it gave #Pacers momentary lead either.

Michael Pointer

Copeland's 3-pointer from the right wing gives #Pacers an 86-85 lead with 2:18 left, but James counters for Dallas on next possession.

Michael Pointer

Sloan hits basket and adds free throw to cut the deficit to 85-83. #Pacers trailed by 14 late in third quarter.

Michael Pointer

Coepland drains a 3-pointer from wing. #Pacers trail 82-78 with 5:06 left. . .

Michael Pointer

Donad Sloan's layup cuts Dallas' lead to 82-75 with 5:56 left, closest #Pacers have been since the final two minutes of first half.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle doesn't want the Pacers getting any more momentum, calling a timeout after Indy makes it an 82-75 score in the @Dallas Mavericks' favor.

Conrad Brunner

If GHill played with Sloan's pace ... oh, forget it. Never happen. #Pacers

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle doesn't want the Pacers getting any more momentum. calling a timeout after Indy makes it an 82-75 score in the @Dallas Mavericks' favor.

Conrad Brunner

If Budinger truly on the market, Bird needs to get very busy on phone with T-Wolves. #Pacers desperate for another 3-man.

Michael Pointer

From the #Pacers: David West has a sprained right ankle and will not return.

Michael Pointer

Hibbert just picked up his first field goal on the opening play of the fourth quarter. #pacers

Michael Pointer

End of third quarter: Mavericks 74, #Pacers 61. But the big story is the health of David West.

Michael Pointer

Damjan Rudez just missed another 3-pointer. Another groan from the #Pacers faithful.

Michael Pointer

Happened with 6:02 left in the third quarter. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle just looked toward end of #pacers bench as if checking on West.

Earl K. Sneed

Pacers are trying to finish the 3rd strong without David West, but Richard Jefferson's 19 pts has the @Dallas Mavericks up 65-54 with 3:42.

Michael Pointer

West now being helped to the locker room. Not looking good at all. Very bas sign for #Pacers.

Conrad Brunner

David West being helped off by pretty much entire #Pacers team after rolling R ankle.

Earl K. Sneed

Got to feel bad for the Pacers, who are already without Paul George. David West is being helped up and walking with assistance of teammates.

Michael Pointer

Ian Mahinmi just missed rim entirely with a free throw. Kind of sums up night. #pacers

Conrad Brunner

Why are fans still at #Pacers game? Are they showing Notre Dame-FSU game on video monolith?

Mark Montieth

Pacers were hitting .345 from 3pt line before tonight, even with Rudez going 2-14. But they hit Rudez-like 2-14 in first half vs Mavs.

Earl K. Sneed

The @Dallas Mavericks' reserves are shooting 48.8% tonight. The Pacers are playing their main guys and shooting 36.4%. #DALatIND

Dwain Price

#Mavs led the #Pacers at the half 52-42.

Conrad Brunner

The only way GHill could look more disinterested would be looking at his cel phone while walking the ball upcourt. #Pacers.

Earl K. Sneed

Pacers are trying to rally to close the first half. @Dallas Mavericks still have a 48-42 edge with 1:17 left in the half, though. #DALatIND

Michael Pointer

#Pacers on a 10-2 run. Miles layup cuts deficit to 48-42 with 1:17 left in first half.
