Greg Rappaport

I'm hoping Vogel lets members of the media get some playing time in the second half. My NBA dream could happen tonight.

Conrad Brunner

Here we go again: Opponent record-low for 1H vs. #Pacers is 24, for any half is 23.

Greg Rappaport

I can confidently say I've never seen such a lopsided game in my life. Pacers up 58-19. Lakers now 5-of-39....

Greg Rappaport

With three minutes left, this stat feels worth tweeting: Fewest points, first half 19-L.A. Clippers at L.A. Lakers, December 14, 1999

Scott Agness

The #Pacers are halfway to the century mark before the Lakers have even topped 20. LAL have missed 31 of 36 attempts. #Crazy

Greg Rappaport

Lavoy Allen sends Kobe's layup attempt into the hands of none other than @eddiewhite3 . Give that man a contract.

Conrad Brunner

Keep in mind, as you watch these #Lakers: the only player Bird considered other than PG at No. 10 in '10 was Ed Davis.Can I get a yikes?

Candace Buckner

Vogel flashing a smile in timeout huddle. Hibbert sprints out to the floor to pick up Rodney Stuckey. Stuff's fun when you're winning, eh?

Greg Rappaport

Stuckey goin' hard for that loose ball and Hibbert runs off the bench to help him up after the time out. Many good signs from this one.

Candace Buckner

Scola knocked down a baseline 3. #Pacers bench celebration led by Roy Hibbert. Indy up 46-17

Scott Agness

If Kobe thinks his team was Charmin soft last week, wonder how he feels right now. Pacers 46, Lakers 17.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers might score 200 against this #Lakers defense. Fastbreak for Donald Sloan and zero players get back. Indy leads 41-17

Greg Rappaport

Miles continues to be an offensive factor now that he's found his stroke. Already with 11 points.

Greg Rappaport

#IND up 34-15 over #LAL In that quarter, the @Indiana Pacers set their first quarter high for scoring as well as first Q low for opp scoring.NOT BAD

Scott Agness

#Pacers have their best opening stanza of the year, pouring 34pts on LAL, who are on the back-end of a 3-gm trip. (Previously: 28 at PHX).

Candace Buckner

Hey! Guess the highest scoring 1st Q for #Pacers this season? You just witnessed it. Indy up 34-15, scoring like it's a thing or something

Conrad Brunner

Season-hi 1Q for #Pacers, season-lo 1Q for opponents as lead over #Lakers is 34-15. L.A. tickling the twine at 3-20 clip.

Scott Agness

Nick Young drills a 3, preventing the Lakers from setting a record for fewest 1Q-pts scored on the Pacers. Previously: 9 (5x).

Greg Rappaport

the #Pacers have already surpassed their season-high for the first quarter (28@phx), with 32 tonight.

Candace Buckner

I don't want to sound like Jeff Van Gundy here, but if you celebrate a 3 pointer in a 19-point game, you should be hit with a tech promptly

Conrad Brunner

There goes the record. My bad for providing the jinx material.

Candace Buckner

Nick Young just hit a 3-pointer to make the score 29-10 and celebrated, of course, because he just made a 3-pointer in a 19-point game.

Greg Rappaport

In case you were wondering: The lowest point total in a quarter that the Pacers have held opponents to this season is 13: Lakers have 10

Conrad Brunner

I know you're wondering, so: record for fewest 1Q pts by #Pacers opponent is 9 (5 times).

Greg Rappaport

In true Kobe fashion, all starters are on the bench except for him, because of course, he is a robot.

Candace Buckner

Talk about a streak buster… #Pacers lead 24-4 while the #Lakers have missed 15 of 17 shots.

Greg Rappaport

Vogel takes his first timeout with the Pacers leading 24-4. That was quite a run by the starters.

Greg Rappaport

Hibbert heads to the bench for a well deserved rest. Lavoy in.

Scott Agness

So, this #Pacers start is the opposite of what we’re used to. They’ve sprinted out to a 23-4 lead. #LakersShouldBlameLance

Candace Buckner

Worst defense in the league, y'all. #Pacers looking like the '11 Dallas Mavericks up in here.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have either cleaned up their offense and learned how to make shots… or they're just playing the #Lakers. Up 20-4 now

Scott Agness

Oh boy… BLAME LANCE!!! #EasyThingToDo RT @Rick Bonnell: Hornets trail 19-0, have missed all nine of their shots.

Conrad Brunner

Based on first 6 minutes, Kobe was being generous comparing his teammates to Charmin. #Pacers up 18-4.

Candace Buckner

Every shot Ronnie Price has made in the last three seasons has looked lucky to me.

Greg Rappaport

Best start I've seen from Indiana's first unit in some time. Extra effort helping out quite a bit. The team looks energized. 12-2 #Pacers

Candace Buckner

#Pacers possibly on their way to winning another 1st Q here. Timeout w/ 7:47 left and Indy has 12-2 lead

Scott Agness

Solomon Hill getting the first crack at guarding Kobe. Has to be surreal for him as a L.A. native. Kobe is in Year 19; Solo is 23 yrs old.

Greg Rappaport

There is no center that Stuckey will not attack. This time goes at the chest of Jordan Hill for atough layup. Pacers lead 10-2

Candace Buckner

Rodney Stuckey now defending Kobe.

Greg Rappaport

I'm gonna go ahead and say there are a couple of Kobe fans in the house tonight.

Greg Rappaport

CJ Watson able to -- somehow -- draw three defenders, leaving west wide open on the Pick&pop play.

Candace Buckner

David West and those mid-range jumpers… more of those makes gotta happen. #Pacers up 4-0

Candace Buckner

I spoke with #Pacers owner Herb Simon before the game. Would he be OK w/ Lance returning? Yes, he would. But… Story coming soon.

Mark Montieth

Kobe gets loud cheers too. Fans come to see the stars. Nothing wrong with that.

Mark Montieth

Byron Scott gets cheer from fans. The ones who remember Game 1 in Orlando.

Candace Buckner

Big cheer in BLF for Kobe Bryant during starter's intros. And yes, there's a lot of purple and gold in here.

Candace Buckner

SHOTS FIRED! MT @IndyStarSports: Should #Pacers bring back Lance Stephenson? @Gregg Doyel answers: "NO!" indy.st/1waY3C1

Conrad Brunner

C.J. Miles returns for #Pacers tonight, but Vogel sticking with Stuckey and Solo Hill as starting wings.

Conrad Brunner

Vogel said GHill will start full practice this week, will be on#Pacers road trip but unlikely to play.

Michael Pointer

BTW: Some Knoxville folks told me the reason I probably didn't see a street sign for #PeytonManning Pass there is because it gets stolen.

Scott Agness

George Hill to begin practicing “full-out” this week; is his return just around the corner? bit.ly/1IVdF1I

Michael Pointer

My colleague @ZachOsterman voted Butler 21st. @CgoffJG of the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette has the Bulldogs 19th. Love from Indiana writers.

Michael Pointer

#Butler falls eight spots to 23rd in this week's A.P. college hoops poll. Other Big East teams are No. 7 Villanova and No. 20. St. John's.

Greg Rappaport

Milestone Tracker: If Chris Copeland has 119 points tonight, he will not burst into the NBA record book, but also reach 1000 for his career.

Greg Rappaport

Tonight's starting lineup for the Pacers: G C.J. Watson, G Rodney Stuckey, F Solomon Hill, PF David West, C Roy Hibbert.

Greg Rappaport

With two fouls, Kobe ties Kareem as the Lakers' all-time leader in personal fouls. With three, he stands alone.

Greg Rappaport

Lakers are 1-4 this season on the second game of back-to-backs. Pacers haven't played since Saturday.

Scott Agness

No return date set for George Hill (torn quad), but Vogel says the plan is for George to begin practicing "full-out" this week.

Scott Agness

CJ Miles is active tonight and will play — but off the bench. Watson, Stuckey, and S. Hill start on the perimeter.

Traveling back to Indy. My weekly #Butler notes will be sent out sometime tomorrow morning. I'll tweet them out.

Michael Pointer

According to Vegas, today's #Butler loss was a mild upset at best. Bulldogs were 1-point favorites Sunday morning. Not a shocking result.

Greg Rappaport

NBC, they play fast, we get it. This is not the Eagles' first game under Kelly.

Scott Agness

There it is. Kobe passed MJ, moved into third place on the NBA's scoring list w/ 32,293pts in Minnesota. No history making tomorrow at BLF.

Funny because Jordan said in Oct.: ‘We need someone that can compete against LeBron’ … scapegoat, perhaps? vigilantsports.com/2014/10/28/jor…

Scott Agness

I know Pacers were upset how he left. Took a chance on him, produced a movie and he left… they specifically didn't thank him online/Twitter.

Scott Agness

Hornets wanting to part w/ Lance already? That was fast. He still hasn't talked with Larry Bird since July. Gotta wonder what his market is…
