Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson hits a three-pointer then turns and gives his coach a low five… then walks back on the court to pump up the crowd. #OhLance

Conrad Brunner

After huge 3, Lance runs right to a camera.

Scott Agness

Stephenson (17/9/11) hits a huge 3-pointer, then slaps hands with coach Vogel. Pacers 97-91, 34.2 seconds.

Candace Buckner

David West with the block on Kevin Durant.

Candace Buckner

Now G. Hill back in for the final 59 secs

Conrad Brunner

After Watson TO, Vogel brings back Hill.

Conrad Brunner

That's the 2nd time a ref has gotten in the way of the ball tonight.

Conrad Brunner

Watson checks in for Hill for final 3 minutes.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers run well designed play to get Paul George open from a pin down. 3 pointer. Indy lead

Scott Agness

Out of the timeout, Vogel going with the starters + C.J. Watson. Tied at 89, 2:19 left.

Mark Montieth

Hibbert back in the game

Candace Buckner

#Pacers Lineup: Lance, Watson, West, George, Hibbert.

Candace Buckner

With 2:19 remaining, Vogel is putting Roy Hibbert back into the game after Ian Mahinmi has played very, very solid

Scott Agness

Pacers’ home finale is sellout No. 28 of the season, the most since 2000. They had 10 all last season.

Conrad Brunner

Well, that 11-point lead disappeared in a hurry. Assist to G2 zone for waking up Westbrook with taunts.

Scott Agness

Just like that, it’s all tied up at 89. 2:29 left.

Candace Buckner

All even here at BLF, 89-89 with 2:30 to go

Candace Buckner

22 turnovers now for the #Pacers

Scott Agness

Stephenson so caught up in trying to beat Westbrook that he got his pocket picked. His 4th turnover. Pacers clinging to 5-pt lead, 3:54.

Mark Montieth

Metta World Artest in the house.

Mark Montieth

Paul George a little gimpy. Hurt left knee on recent drive.

Candace Buckner

Westbrook tries one of those block-the-shot-on-a-dead-ball move (the ones I hate) and fell while doing it. BLF responds appropriately

Scott Agness

Despite his donut, Roy Hibbert has been very active and vocal on the bench. He was the first out to greet the players during the timeout.

Conrad Brunner

After knocking ref David Jones into the front row after a loose-ball chase, KD just turns and walks away. As well as refs take care of him?

Candace Buckner

Refs getting abused here today

Candace Buckner

So interesting that the two guys who sub in for the two starters with the biggest confidence issues have put together season high gms 2day

Candace Buckner

Season high for Ian Mahinmi with 11 points

Scott Agness

Today’s bench play is what Larry Bird envisioned this past summer. Watson, Scola and Mahinmi all playing well and in double figures.

Conrad Brunner

They play same position with same responsibilities and yet: GHill 2 FGA in last 52m, Watson 9 FGA in 22m tonight.

Conrad Brunner

Yes, he's having a hell of a game. No, C.J. Watson's lengthy absence was not the problem for the #Pacers, although it surely did not help.

Candace Buckner

Season high for C.J. Watson. 19 points

Scott Agness

C.J. Watson hits yet another 3-pointer, his fourth of the game, giving Indiana its first double-digit lead. 83-72, 9:10 left.

Scott Agness

Stephenson, who’s played seven more minutes than any other Pacer (35), heads to the bench with 10:01 left. He has 12/7/9.

Candace Buckner

With one more point, Ian Mahinmi about to become the third #Pacers bench player in double figures.

Candace Buckner

Third quarter: PG early, then David West and a lot of Lance late as #Pacers score 27

Scott Agness

Pacers 74, Thunder 66 after three quarters of play. Five Pacers in double figures, led by DWest’s 16, eight tallied in the 3rd.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers back up to their largest lead of the game, with the 74-66 advantage over the #Thunder

Candace Buckner

Paul George has 11 rebounds… his season high is 14

Candace Buckner

Nick Collison back out here to start bleeding again

Candace Buckner

Kevin Durant at it again. Draws the foul and hits the shot. He's now 8 for 17 with 26 points (perfect 10 for 10 at the FT line)

Conrad Brunner

Triple-double alert update: Lance with 7-7-7 (and 4 TOs, so maybe should be quadruple double update)

Candace Buckner

With 3:34 remaining, #Pacers up 65-59

Candace Buckner

Lance is always comedy. Vogel calls 4 a timeout and Lance is near the sideline darn there jumping and screaming b/c he wanted to run a play

Candace Buckner

Little bit of a foul extravaganza by the #Thunder now. Can't leave this side of the floor

Candace Buckner

Loose ball foul on Ibaka then hit with a technical foul

Scott Agness

Technical foul on Serge Ibaka, and he may be hearing from the league for getting in official Scott Foster’s face like that.

Candace Buckner

Two turnovers on the last two possessions for the #Pacers

Candace Buckner

It's been all Paul George and David West in the third quarter and surprisingly, that's been enough. #Pacers up 64-59

Scott Agness

Thunder leaving DWest open on the wing for jumpers and he’s making them pay. 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting. Timeout OKC.

Candace Buckner

Kendrick Perkins becomes the first starting center in this game to score a bucket

Candace Buckner

Kevin Durant getting his 8th and 9th free throws, much to the chagrin of Frank Vogel

Candace Buckner

#Pacers turn a play that was heading in the wrong direction into a second opportunity for Paul George at the rim. Up 60-55

Scott Agness

Paul George with an easy two-handed flush on his own. He has 12 points; Pacers 58-55.

Candace Buckner

Just a spinning pass from Lance to David West because… well, I can't tell you why

Mark Montieth

When Larry Bird talks, reporters listen. http://t.co/r3q4cBL9nh

Scott Agness

Pacers shot 50% in the first half, but have 12 turnovers and have been outscored at the line, 15-4. Durant with 7FTs by himself.

Conrad Brunner

Foul trouble could be huge for #Pacers in 2H. If Hill can get an early P4, that means more time for Watson.

Mark Montieth

Pacers shooting 50 percent despite Hibbert going 0-7 and PG 1-6. Bench is 11-of-15. Like I've been saying, it's up to the All-Stars.

Mark Montieth

Hibbert is engaged in the game and trying, but can't score. It's obviously in his head now. But, no, not time to bench him. Think longterm.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers bench: 27 pts, 11-15 FG in 1H. #Pacers starters: 20 pts, 8-23 FG.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers lead 47-45 at halftime. C.J. Watson, of all people, lead the #Pacers with 14 points

Scott Agness

Pacers lead the Thunder 47-45 at the break. C.J. Watson with 14 points, four off his season high. Durant has 19.

Candace Buckner

Watson takes Perkins to the rim and finishes tough layup

Candace Buckner

Two offensive rebounds for the #Thunder on that last possession. Somebody needs to go for the ball

Conrad Brunner

Haven't had one of these in a while: triple-double alert for Lance (5p, 6r, 5a) #pacers

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson: 5 points, 5 assists, 6 rebounds

Scott Agness

Paul George called for his third foul. Vogel arguing to official David Jones that PG went straight up. Turner returns.

Candace Buckner

Roy's just snakebitten now and Paul George gets called for this third foul with 3:02 remaining in the half.

Candace Buckner

Wanted to yell "down in front!" to David West as he blocked my view of that Kevin Durant drive. Then remembered it was David West. #silence

Scott Agness

Luis Scola joins Watson in double figures, all 10 scored in the second period.

Candace Buckner

Roy wins tip but Westbrook steals possession from Paul George. Easy slam dunk on other end

Candace Buckner

Hibbert fell down (not sure why) on the baseline which leads to jump ball between he and Ibaka.

Mark Montieth

Pacers back with starters, except Scola for West.

Candace Buckner

Turner has had some bad moments this quarter, but I think his playmaking has stood out. Has four assists and two turnovers

Scott Agness

Terrific fast break there, Turner finds Scola for the layup. Pacers with their biggest lead, 8, 41-33. 5:27 2Q. 10asts on 16 hoops so far.

Candace Buckner

If Scott Foster wasn't up before, he's wide awake now

Conrad Brunner

Turner guarding, er, assigned to KD, and everyone else shooting for Thunder. Talk about bad recognition.

Candace Buckner

Your boy Mahinmi has been putting up some solid efforts under the radar lately

Scott Agness

Watson completes the three-point play at the line. He’s 4-for-4 today, for a team-high 12 points. Pacers up 35-29.

Candace Buckner

Even if you take into account that 3-pter at the end of the quarter that was waved off, Watson has not missed a shot today

Candace Buckner

And I'm sure if we (the media) ask him about it later, Watson's response will be a monosyllable mumble.

Candace Buckner

Watson laid on ground and pumped his fist, that's about the most emotion I've seen out of "Quiet Storm" all year

Candace Buckner

C.J. Watson is feelings it. Knocks down a three, then finishes the 2 on 1 layup thru the foul.

Scott Agness

Think C.J. Watson was missed?

Scott Agness

As soon as they put a shot up, Pacers sending everyone but their center back on defense.

Candace Buckner

Reggie Jackson has six points in the opening 2 1/2 minutes of this quarter. #InjectedWithWestbrookBlood

Candace Buckner

The biggest problem, as it has been, for the #Pacers… turnovers. Team had 6 in the first quarter

Mark Montieth

So if the Pacers lose by 3 or less, we know the turning point.

Conrad Brunner

Durant 12 points, 4-8 FG in 1Q. Teammates 9 points, 2-12 FG.

Candace Buckner

After 1st Q: #Pacers lead 22-21. David West with another hot start, 3 for 5 for 6 points. Kevin Durant 4 for 8

Scott Agness

Watson nearly does it again, but he stepped out of bounds. He’s 6-for-6 from deep in his 3gms back. They put 0.2 on the clock

Conrad Brunner

Review of Watson's 3: he stepped out of bounds with 0.2 game clock. Left foot grazed the sideline.

Candace Buckner

Shot no good but Watson stepped out of bounds so .2 is back on the clock to close the quarter

Candace Buckner

Scott Foster with the initial call: no good. Watson's 3-pointer in the corner will not count. Refs not looking at the review

Candace Buckner

I think that was after the buzzer

Candace Buckner

Make that two triples in a row from C.J. Watson, who really has looked sharp since his long time off due to hamstring & elbow problems

Scott Agness

Back-to-back triples from C.J. Watson, from the same spot, has the Pacers on top 22-19. Amazing how well he’s shot it since his elbow injury

Candace Buckner

I think everybody on the right side of BLF saw Watson open and really, really wanted D West to find him. He did. 3-pointer. Tied game.

Candace Buckner

Only two things could've happened on that reverse, baseline drive - a foul or a turnover. #Pacers lucky to get the foul
