G. Hill with back to back 3s. #Pacers up 6

Greg Rappaport

Back-to-back 3's from G.Hill. Happy Sunday everybody.

Scott Agness

Pacers with three straight triples, the latter two from G. Hill. That pushes them in front by six with < 5m to play.

Candace Buckner

All tied at 89 with 5:47 remaining in the game. Vogel sticking with Scola and Mahinmi for a big portion here. Hibbert/West combined for 22 p

Greg Rappaport

Stuckey shakes off the final piece of rust from missing a couple of games and nails a 3. Knotted at 89

Candace Buckner

Vogel upset w/ off foul, complaining Dirk only got it for screaming. So, he instructs #Pacers: "Hey, scream every time you get screened!"

Candace Buckner

C.J. Watson gets the reverse layup around three #Mavs. Indy up 86-84 with 8:18 remaining in the game.

Greg Rappaport

Luis Scola gets called for blocking Dirk's vision. Or something.

Candace Buckner

Late call, but the right call. Dirk got a lot of wrist on C.J. Watson's little underhanded layup attempt

Candace Buckner

#Pacers outscored #Mavs 23-18 in the quarter, C.J. Miles once again leading the way with 7

Conrad Brunner

Great job by refs getting that critical 0.2 back on the clock at end of 3Q. Game would've been played under cloud of controversy otherwise.

Greg Rappaport

That Dirk jumper was only the second Mavs FG in the last 6:30 of game time.

Candace Buckner

Like the way ref Tom Washington will just throw the look of death at an overly complaining coach. Always shuts em up.

Candace Buckner

Teams only play 3 x this yr. No. RT @_BrettJohnson_: @Candace Buckner @IndyStarSports don't the pacers own the tie breaker with the nets?

Candace Buckner

Both teams have won once. Tiebreaker coming Mar 31 RT @bookjunkie86: @Candace Buckner but don't we hold tiebreaker over Nets and not Boston?

Candace Buckner

Standings update: Brooklyn won, but Boston lost tonight. #Pacers one game behind #Nets for 8th seed

Greg Rappaport

When Amar'e is at the 5, the game plan should be pretty simply--attack the paint...relentlessly

Greg Rappaport

Kind of amazed Carlise didn't get a tech there. Appeared to make contact with the official while arguing for an offensive goaltending call.

Candace Buckner

With 2:55 remaining in the 3rd Q, all square at 74. C.J. Miles up to 23 points. David West 10, 4, 4

Candace Buckner

G. Hill ties the game w/ a floater, #Mavs contesting that it should be offensive interference b/c Mahinmi did touch the rim. They missed it

Greg Rappaport

West pretty much just picked his spot at the elbow and threw Parsons off of him, then hit the J. Pacers trail by just 2.

Candace Buckner

David West comes in hot, pushes Chandler Parsons off the block and not one #Mavs player recovers, so of course he gets open mid range shot

Candace Buckner

#Mavericks still ahead 74-68, ref Bennie Adams still the most unpopular guy on the floor and #Pacers still struggling on the defensive front

Scott Agness

Seen it for a decade and still can’t figure out how Dirk hits his patented shot — fadeaway, off one leg, 15-feet out — and with such ease.

Michael Pointer

Story will be up shortly, but keep in mind Gathers is not coming into start -- unless he beats out Dunham or Jones. Doubt that will happen.

Candace Buckner

Richard Jefferson after picking up a foul on 3-point shooting C.J. Miles: "You got to be sh --(ing) me!"

Candace Buckner

Tyson Chandler is ouchea trying to get an NBA fine for flopping

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill has drawn two fouls against Chandler Parsons in the first 4 minutes of the 3rd Q

Michael Pointer

The Big East will have rep in Frozen Four. Providence going for first time since '85. (League doesn't sponsor hockey, but you get my drift.)

Michael Pointer

Here is a picture of Gathers playing at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Feb. 2013. He's guarding Butler's Jackson Aldridge. http://t.co/uGsBSY5IlA

Greg Rappaport

Pacers finding points in the paint so far.

Candace Buckner

G. Hill and Tyson Chandler got tangled up after possession, but HIll decided to add an extra shove. It's a double T

Candace Buckner

Back to back offensive fouls by the #Pacers. A very delayed call on Roy Hibbert.

Greg Rappaport

You know teams are having a good long-range shooting night when even the guy in the halftime contest hits the halfcourt shot.

Michael Pointer

Here is a highlight reel for Jordan Gathers, #Butler's newest player. Highlight Reel: youtu.be/jPixNHYvdBI via @YouTube

Greg Rappaport

Mavericks and Pacers shooting a combined 11-15 from 3-point land. Not expecting that to hold up in the second half.

Greg Rappaport

At the half: Pacers trail the Mavs 61-55. Pacers shooting a scorching 55% and have made 6-of-9 from deep. And now...frisbee dogs.

Candace Buckner

Halftime: #Mavs score 34 in the 2nd Q and lead 61-55.

Scott Agness

Well, the Pacers got the start they wanted — up six after 1Q — but their elite defense has been absent. Mavs 61-55 at the break.

Greg Rappaport

Chandler Pasons just threw down a splendid dunk, but Luis Scola counters by drawing a foul on Tyson Chandler.

Candace Buckner

Chandler Parson, ripped tights and all, goes to the rim undeterred and #Mavs up 61-54

Candace Buckner

So much emphasis on better starts, the #Pacers have let up after the 1st Q…#Mavs up to 32 points in the 2nd still w/ 1 more possession

Greg Rappaport

Interesting to see Vogel counter Dallas' size of Chandler and Dirk with a front line of West and Scola.

Conrad Brunner

Dude oughta get more than 15hunny for making free throw, three and halfcourt shot during #Pacers timeout.

Candace Buckner

Kid hits a half court shot off glass during timeout, gets a standing O from Quinn Buckner and J.J. Barea

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert picks up his first foul but #Pacers in penalty. The Do-It-Without-Fouling mantra Vogel likes to yell out isn't working

Scott Agness

The Luis Scola fastbreak!

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers shooting 59%, including 6-7 from 3, and trail.

Greg Rappaport

Ray Felton and Tyson Chandler on the court together for the #Mavs. Watch out for the lobs

Candace Buckner

#Pacers call timeout at 8:52 mark -- defense isn't doing its job so far in 2nd Q. Indy leads 37-34…A lot of Dirk here, he has 8 overall

Candace Buckner

Four plays for the #Mavericks so far this quarter, and three #Pacers fouls

Candace Buckner

Correction: #Pacers shot 64.7 percent through the 1st Q

Candace Buckner

#Pacers shoot 63% #Mavs 38% C.J. Miles with 14 points in less than 9 mins But Miles and Solomon Hill both with two fouls a piece

Mark Montieth

Rudez hits two pressure packed threes to win the first quarter for Pacers. Lead 33-27. Ends streak of 10 games trailing after one.

Candace Buckner

It's the first time in 11 games that the #Pacers have been on top after the 1st Q. #statsandstuff

Candace Buckner

End 1st Q: #Pacers shooting 3s like Wisconsin in the 2nd half vs Arizona. Indy takes six 3s, makes 6 3s and lead 33-27.

Conrad Brunner

For first time in 11 games, #Pacers lead after first quarter: 33-27.

Scott Agness

#Pacers in front after one period for the first time in 11 games, 33-27 on the Mavs, and shooting 65%.

Candace Buckner

After C.J. Miles' 4 for 4 start from 3, now Damjan Rudež has come in and knocked down two straight from top of the arc

Greg Rappaport

Rudez must be ready for the spring because he is making it rain out here.

Greg Rappaport

Stuckey grabbing for his wrist after hitting the deck hard. Looks like he's fine to stay in the game though.

Candace Buckner

There have been some hard falls tonight. Now Rodney Stuckey hits the ground after a foul. Stays there for a bit but gets up

Scott Agness

Hibbert appears to be headed back to the locker room. Was bleeding. Ball boys cleaned up blood on the floor during the last timeout.

Candace Buckner

Chandler Parson ripped his tights on that fall

Candace Buckner

Strong block by D. West, good energetic start from him on both ends.

Greg Rappaport

pretty decent start RT @Royce Young: 14 points in 7 minutes for C.J. Miles.

Mark Montieth

Make that 14 of first 22 for Miles. Hard to time these things. Pacers lead 22-17.

Conrad Brunner

C.J. Miles going Ilyasova all over the Mavs, Has 14 in first 8 mins, 4-4 from 3, #Pacers up 5.

Scott Agness

C.J. Miles is scorching hot, 5-of-6 from the floor with 14 of Indiana’s 22 points. Perfect (4-4) from deep.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles has hit 4 3-pointers from that same right corner spot. #Pacers open 22-17 lead at 4:18 mark. Miles with 14

Greg Rappaport

Miles drills his 3rd three from the corner in front of the Pacers bench. Puts Indiana up 22-17 with 4:18 left in the 1st Q

Mark Montieth

CJ Miles taking responsibility for the better start. Had 11 of first 17.

Scott Agness

Slow starts have plagued the #Pacers this month. Not the case tonight. 17 points mid-1Q, more than they had in each of the last three games.

Candace Buckner

Nearly midway through the 1st Q & the #Pacers lead 14-12. Call this the better start they've been searching for

Michael Pointer

Just to clarify: Gathers is a graduate transfer with one year of eligibility left. He's a one-and-done, so to speak. #Butler

Scott Agness

It’s the @NBA’s annual Green Week. RT @ematiernon: @Scott Agness What’s with Hill’s green shoes? http://t.co/1ogaGaY775

Candace Buckner

Vogel talked abt guys not simply facilitating & being assertive. That's a good msg for West to hear. He's been overpassing a lot

Candace Buckner

David West with the long jumper with 19 seconds still on the shot clock.

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill picks up his second foul and walks directly to the #Pacers bench. Early entry for Rodney Stuckey

Greg Rappaport

Very encouraging start for the Pacers who have been slow out of the gates lately. Indiana up 12-7

Candace Buckner

Rotation there for the #Pacers but there's nothing Solomon Hill can do about defending Tyson Chandler in the paint. Roy can't leave him

Candace Buckner

David West looking like the undead, with the blood shot right eye.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers 4-0 in FloJos, averaging 107.5 points, with Ws over Warriors and Cavs.

Scott Agness

Pacers 4-0 in the #FloJos. As a special treat, @MaryJoynerMusic, daughter of the designer (Florence Griffith-Joyner) singing National Anthem

Greg Rappaport

under two minutes until national anthem time here at @TheFieldhouse as the @Indiana Pacers get ready to face the @Dallas Mavericks. Should be a good one.

Michael Pointer

Maybe Indianapolis' most important figure is in the twilight of life, yet remains optimistic. indy.st/1bHgyqB via @indystar

Michael Pointer

Correction: Jordan Gathers is Hank Gathers' nephew. Played his high school hoops in California.

Conrad Brunner

Outscored 80--44 in 1Q of last 3, outscored in 1Q of 10 straight, #Pacers host #Mavericks tonight. West, Stuckey back. Not PG.

Michael Pointer

Got lucky in Indy the last two years with UK and Louisville, but today's games show its good thing NCAA dropping domes as regional sites.

Michael Pointer

Duke is obviously a great program, but there's something about Romo and Witten "adopting" the Blue Devils that is just flat weird.

Michael Pointer

We'll have more later, but the younger Gathers is the cousin of Hank Gathers. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Gathers is eligible next season. Fifth-year senior that missed last season due to injury. Could be top reserve off the bench. More to come.

Candace Buckner

For #Mavericks, Richard Jefferson is starting in place of injured Monta Ellis
