NBA suspends Houston’s James Harden one game for kicking LeBron James in the family jewels.
Forgot to add "pretty please" on that last tweet. Sounds like I'm commanding you all - which I am, but yanno, don't want it be transparent
As the Pacers have more success, they're considered for more honors. Boston’s Isaiah Thomas named the East’s POW, but G-Hill was a nominee.
Vogel: "Coach of the Month is always a team award. … It’s nice recognition for our players who didn’t quit through a lot of adversity."
C.J. Miles, by the way, has flat feet and is trying to get the right orthotics, therefore has sore feet. Doesn't expect long-term problem.
Don't count out someone catching Milwaukee in the East. They have difficult remaining schedule with Western road games, Spurs at home, etc.
I've covered a few Indiana Derbys. That first Saturday in October often was cool and wet. I will take the July heat anytime.
Indiana Grand says moving Indiana Derby will attract more fans because of warmer weather. Three days leading up will have 7 stakes.
The virtue of a man ought to be measured, not by his extraordinary exertions, but by his everyday conduct. Blaise Pascal
Is there a less predictable player in the NBA than DJ Augustin?
Idea that shorter shot clock will improve college bball is wrong. Studies have proven that. Only means bad shots are more likely.
Players and baseline camera folks are getting to know each other quite intimately this game. Now, count's up to Covington, Richardson, Scola
Philly's already in the penalty at the 7:06 mark. Thanks, Sixers. Thanks a lot.
Jason Richardson takes out two cameramen with one fall.
Hard foul by Robert Covington on the baseline. Still down and clearly in pain
Robert Covington gets by Miles easily & scores. Miles should find a new way to express disappointment tho - he stomps his already sore feet
Roy Hibbert has been a pest defensively tonight, but he needs more help. He's got 10 & 11 for his 14th double-double of the year, plus 4blks
During that set, S. Hill told George Hill to use Hibbert's screen. From there, G. Hill dropped a pretty step back baseline J.
Philly has cut the lead to 63-53
Roy Hibbert caught himself on that fall with his bare elbow. (Sleeve on his other one) Didn't look pretty. But he's OK
It should be a rule: if a big blocks a shot, then sprints down to the other end, he should automatically get a touch.
C.J. Miles back in the starting lineup here to begin the second half.
Pacers lead 59-46 at the half. So far the highlight of the game was Thomas Robinson running up to row 9, then almost getting a cherry pick.

Roy Hibbert with some nice blocks during this 2nd Q and he has 7 rebounds to go with this.
What a dump off by Stuckey, finding Hibbert for the easy slam. Pacers' lead has swelled to 16 as Sixers keep throwin' up air balls.
Luis Scola scores a layup over Nerlens Noel while getting fouled. Hibbert celebrates w/ a roll-the-dice move (?) Not sure, but Indy up 44-34
Rodney Stuckey with 6 points here in the 2nd Q
JaVale McGee didn't even try to get around that screen and defend Ian Mahinmi on that inbounds play
Surprised McGee is putting up air balls from 18 feet when he's trying to get a buyout from Philadelphia.
So when are they replaying that HOU-CLE game?
Surprised McGee is playing while he tries to get a buyout from Philadelphia.
Guess the foot is feeling fine. Miles rises up for the and-1 over Grant.
Pacers got their better start. And then took a break. Just not comfortable with an early lead.
McGee tried defending the rim with his back turned to the play and jumping. That's either sheer creativity or just kinda weird
Last game, an elbow from JaVale McGee gave a pretty nasty shiner to Ian Mahinmi. Two still physical at end of this 1st Q
