HoopsHype Indiana Pacers twitter
All these people who complain about All-Star "snubs" never say who should be taken off the team to make room for therm.
Derrick Rose stepback… not as glorious as the other night
Working towards the day when I can stare intensely at a doll created in my likeness, too. http://t.co/gkJLsbMq6K
Hibbert (18/10) credited weight lifting before the gm & made sure to "emulate Ian a little bit when he dunks." Legs spread, hanging on rim
Luis Scola said Vogel told on Wednesday that he would get rest tonight & not play. Scola's reax? "It’s his call at the end of the day."
Should add this correction: Scola's streak of games played was at 277. "Has played a full slate of reg season games in 6 of 7 NBA seasons"
Five points, four rebounds in 18 minutes tonight for Shayne Whittington in his first D-League game.
OK, scratch that tweet about Luis potentially missing out on a bonus. He said that $ was guaranteed this season. Informed Wed. he would sit.
Vogel said he expects Luis Scola to be back in lineup "if not next game, then the game after that."
Luis Scola had played in 278 straight gms but Vogel chose to rest him. Said team didn't want to be concerned with long streaks
Pacers spokesman says Luis Scola did not play for rest purposes.
No real update with Lavoy Allen (sore right knee)... will be reevaluated tomorrow and should be more info then.
Oh man, Marshawn Lynch spreading in locker rooms. George Hill: "I'm only talking so I don't get fined." Then added, "That was hilarious."
Beaut of a block by Cope on HardawayJR. Not only got a clean block but kept it inbounds.
Scola has played in all but 8 games throughout his 8-yr career. Played in every game in all but 1 season (injury in ’11). Bonus for it, too.
Interesting that Luis Scola has yet to play tonight. Last time he DNP: 4/13/11, with the Rockets. 277 straight appearances.
Just Shayne Whittington's luck. He could have gotten minutes for the Pacers tonight instead of going up to Ft Wayne.
No Scola to start the 4th Q. It's Chris Copeland taking Allen's backup 4 minutes
Copeland getting some burn against his former team. Or, what's left of his former team.
Pacers trailed by 11 in first quarter, lead by 28 heading into fourth. Another display of the Ten Point Theorem. Nearly infallible.
Pacers held the Knicks to 12 third-quarter points, outscored them by 23, for a 89-61 lead after three. Shooting 57%.
Pacers have absolutely destroyed the Knicks this quarter. Have outscored them 35-12
Hibbert (18/10) now w/ a dozen double-doubles this year. Credit this one to DJ Donald Sloan, who got him hyped in the locker room pregame.
Roy Hibbert checks out to big applause: 18 and 10. Not bad a'tall.
I bet Lou Amundson and Scot Pollard would have gotten along well if they had played together.
Everybody's confident now… Solomon Hill pulling up in front of Carmelo for his second 3. Runs back down court pounding his forehead
After missing seven of eight tries in the first half, Pacers have buried all four shots fired from downtown in the 3rd. Now 82-59.
Roy Hibbert still feeling saucy about his Big Dawg moments, walks by scorer's table: "Mark it down in history! Second tip dunk"
Lavoy Allen (sore right leg) now ruled OUT for rest of the night.
Lavoy Allen has a sore right knee and is questionable to return.
Knicks are learning the Triangle. Getting good shots. Making up for lack of talent. Lou Amundsen has 14 at the half.
Jason Smith leaves the game with another bloody mouth. Lance Thomas in
Jason Smith needs to play with a surgical mask on...
Both David West and Frank Vogel were yelling for Rodney Stuckey, or someone, to commit a foul so that Allen could come out. Nobody did.
Lavoy Allen comes up gimpy after scoring, signals to bench for replacement.
Yikes. After tipping in that shot, Lavoy Allen limps away from the basket and turns towards the bench to come out
That was Rodney Stuckey tapping back an offensive rebound over two guys, including taller Lou Armundson
This game is simple to analyze. Knicks can't win without Carmelo, Pacers can't win without George Hill.
Lavoy ‘He’ll Get It’ Allen with two points, four rebounds in < 5mins.
I don't think Roy Hibbert was able to move Quincy Acy an inch on that post up
Lavoy ‘Lil Boy’ Allen in replacing David West, rather than Luis Scola. Pacers trail the Knicks by five, early 2Q.
No Scola to start the second quarter - it's Lavoy Allen as backup 4
14 fouls called tonight so far.
That forced shot by David West was on Ian Mahinmi… he needed to get out of the paint. West took that shot to beat 3 seconds call
CJ Miles must've stretched tonight.
Quincy Acy = if Rick Ross lost 200 pounds.
David West, Facilitator. Finds Rodney Stuckey cutting to the basket for the layup. He's credited with 1 asst but active in moving the ball
Funny moment on the video board: George Hill’s girlfriend and her brother are shown on the kiss cam. Oops.
Carmelo Anthony made that look super easy
Jason Smith whistled for hurling his face at David West's elbow. And, yes, blood resulted.
