Who said Pacers-Sixers wasn't an intriguing opening-night matchup? ESPN had a crew at morning shootaround…

Scott Agness

#Pacers Vogel shying away from expectations due to uncertainties. "Just having a one-game-at-a-time approach."

Scott Agness

Vogel says he still gets butterflies for opening night. "I'm really excited. I think we have a chance to do something really fun this year."

Conrad Brunner

Now that opening night is here, it's time for the prediction. Drumroll, please ... 30-52. 1070thefan.com/blogs/brunos-b…

The photo reveals the depth of losing such a young man & the hope he carried. Oscar Taveras' was our "can't miss" prospect but Sosua's son.

Now, i feel for Randle, but my heart breaks seeing this. Just tragic. Still can't believe this young light is gone. http://t.co/SPuagpA8WL

To clarify: Barlow will play at the 2, but he'll still see plenty of time at point. Updated our #Butler insider to show that.

More updates on Bird's media availability are soon coming. So watch this space.

Scott Agness

Bird on who has stood out: "George Hill is awesome. Awesome training camp. Every day. Not once a week. Every day he was good."

Scott Agness

Bird on seeking outside help: "…if we feel something is out there that we need or will make us better, we’ll do it." bit.ly/1wDKDvP

A little something before tonight's opener: #Pacers' Roy Hibbert on last season: 'I had to change' indy.st/1wwkNLd via @indystar

Candace Buckner

Bird: "Looks good against his dog & when he’s standing out there in front of u guys, he looks... good. Other than that he don’t do nothing."

Candace Buckner

Bird on Paul George: "That means nothing. He’s got a rod in his leg, holding that bone together and it’s gotta heal."

Candace Buckner

Oh, and anybody impressed with Paul George's shooting and playing 1-on-1 with his pit bull…don't be.

Candace Buckner

"…& if we feel something is out there that we need or make us better, we’ll do it." - Bird on possible moves. Would have to come via trade

Candace Buckner

Bird on #Pacers making a move for backcourt help: "We’ll take a look as we go along...

Candace Buckner

More Bird: "That’s still our goal & we’ll fight towards that goal & I think it’s imp for our franchise to get n2 the playoffs every year."

Candace Buckner

Bird: "I thought we had a legitimate chance to get into the playoffs but we’ll see what happens."

Vogel still plans to use a 10-man rotation. Probable starting lineup: Sloan, Miles, Copeland, Scola, Hibbert. Stuckey gets backup PG mins.

Candace Buckner

Stuckey thinks he'll have to play some backup point while G. Hill & Watson are out. Also, don't be surprised 2 see S. Hill w/ backup PG mins

Candace Buckner

#Pacers Rodney Stuckey said he will play tomorrow but does not expect to start vs #76ers. Also, likely limited minutes.

Scott Agness

Rodney Stuckey plans to play tomorrow. Expects to come off the bench. http://t.co/sn95qBlxfo

Scott Agness

Bird: "I think Paul (George) will probably be out all year. We don't know yet but it looks that way."

Scott Agness

#Pacers Larry Bird just spoke with the media. "Our expectation is to get into the playoffs and that's what we want to do."
