HoopsHype Indiana Pacers twitter
Spurs take great pride in cutting up teams that come into their building thinking they're good. Looks like the Pacers know they're good.
Up 26 with under five to play, Paul George checks out with 28 points on 9-of-14 shooting, and perfect from 3 (4) and the foul line (6).
I have been ripped for oversimplicity on this thought before, but ... this team ain't f***ing around this year. Wow.
With David West, the Pacers’ backbone, on the floor, IND is an astounding +32. He’s nearing his fifth double-double, 20 & 8.
The Spurs give up 92ppg (3rd). With 9:09 to play, the Pacers have a 93-71 lead.
Through 20 games this season, the Pacers are +129 in the third quarter.
Pacers dominate the 3rd, 35-17, and have a 87-65 entering the 4th. Most complete 3Q for IND all season. All five starters in double figures.
Paul George is stroking it. 9-for-13 and he’s hit all four 3-point attempts. He’s got 26 points.
Not only have the Pacers been terrific on offense, but they’ve held the Spurs to 4-for-15 shooting thus far in the 3rd. 19-point lead.
Pacers were 0-for-5 from downtown in the 1st. Since: 5-for-6. That’s a big key in this turnaround.
Scoring the first seven points of the third, the Pacers have opened up a double digit lead on the Spurs — 59-48. Remarkable.
Pacers outscored the Spurs 32-20 in the 2Q, and have a 52-48 halftime edge. Paul George has 17, DWest with 10. Spurs limited to just two FTs
Paul George putting together a special last few minutes. He has Indiana’s last 11. And it looks so easy...
Paul George buried a 3-pointer to put the Pacers in front, all part of a 14-2 run.
Pacers' power forwards, West and Scola, have all but two of their points in the quarter. Now just a three-point game.
Pacers have played well the last three minutes. Currently on an 8-2 spurt and now within seven. Coach Popovich takes timeout. 5:28 2Q.
Ian Mahinmi has three fouls with 8:11 left in the second quarter. West now on the floor to replace him. Spurs 35-24.
Orlando Johnson is just 2-for-11 from deep over the last seven games. Spurs’ cushion has swelled to 12.
Spurs shot 55% in the opening frame and lead, 28-20. Stephenson scoreless in almost 8mins. Pacers need everyone to make an impact tonight.
Paul George tries to send a behind the back pass. That’s not going to fly against this Spurs team. The deficit is up to eight.
Paul George and Roy Hibbert each with six. Pacers down by four with 2:53 left in the 1st. They’ve yet to make a 3, 0-for-5, or turn it over.
Spurs on a 9-2 run and in front 13-8 early. Duncan already with six points.
Jersey and Matt worked hard today to make the airwaves safe for democracy. http://t.co/LUNfK4JAyT
Pacers’ schedule the next four days is about as difficult as possible — Sat.: at San Antonio Sun.: at Oklahoma City Tue.: vs Miami
It's go be one hell of a night
And did I mention it was cold today? It was 11 degrees at 10 a.m. in Indy. Wind chill was about 4.
Fun time today witnessing GameDay from up close. But truthfully, it's much better on TV. Don't feel like you're standing around so much.
Vogel: We’re at a point in our franchise where we expect to win every single gm we play, no matter where it is or who we’re playing against.
Happy 57th birthday to Larry Bird, the 1998 Coach of the Year and 2012 Executive of the Year while with the Pacers. http://t.co/nzg5P8vhGH
OG Bobby Johnson! OG Bobby Johnson! OG Bobby Johnson! Word on the street I'm a suspect!
Not sure if this is as cold as I've ever been in my life. But it's on the short list.
Tyler Hansbrough leaves game early in first quarter with sprained left shoulder. This season not going as he hoped, to say the least. .
The MAC should consider dropping its title game. Don't think revenue it generates offsets risk of losing team in BCS -- and that money.
Bout to check out Old Boy... Hyped
Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything.
Thanks also to Channel 13 for use of footage from the telethon -- a classic time capsule. They were counting dollar bills on the floor!
Greetings to all my media friends in town for Big Ten title game. Will miss you this year, but this Mizzou grad wants to watch the SEC.
"When you watch tape, Carlos Hyde has a lot of takers in the first quarter. . .By the third quarter, it's' a business decision," he said.
Pollack calls Carlos Hyde the key to the game tomorrow night for Ohio State, not so much Braxton Miller.
"Missouri doesn't have a case to me," Pollack said. Notes Mizzou played one team in top four in SEC and lost to it.
Good thing about the south is the sweet tea!!!!
Pollack said Auburn would have a case to pass Ohio State if it wins SEC title. Considers Missouri a top five team. Beat Alabama.
Pollack said Ohio State's offense can score on anybody, but called it's defense a "train wreck." "It's embarrassing at times," he said.
"It's an interesting debate," Pollack said. "I think it's a personal preference thing."
"Is it more important to have a zero in your loss column? Or is it more important to have. . .played a bunch of good teams and maybe lost,"
"This whole debate about who should play in the championship game is about what you prioritize," ESPN's David Pollack said.
"I look at who do you think is a better team," he said. "I happen to think Ohio State is better. That's why I would give them the edge."
Herbstreit said he can make a strong case for either side, but he said he would go with Ohio State if it beats Michigan State tomorrow.
"I would have thought if Auburn had a chance to pass them, it would have been last week," Herbstreit said.
Herbstreit said hard to predict what voters will do, but he can't see Ohio State dropping from the No. 2 spot in BCS rankings if it wins.
"My hunch is that Ohio State's defense, on this big stage, will play much, much better than it did a week ago," Herbstreit said.
Kirk Herbstreit said people are "undervaluing" Ohio State's defense after the Michigan offense played so well against it last week.
Spent a little time with ESPN's College GameDay talent today. A few nuggets coming up.
U.S. gets Germany, Portugal and Ghana in its World Cup group. Advance out of that and you're a contender to win the whole thing. Yikes.
Pagano: Stressing ball-security all week if inclement weather. Makes it tough to throw, so better pack a good running game.
Pagano: Toler, Thornton, Conner all questionable for Sunday. Linkenbach, Francois out.
Do what you do, And do it well!!
I've had bursitis "fat elbows" in both elbows since college. That's y I wear a sleeve I'm fine. Stop worrying I'm ok http://t.co/kHhgckhZoU
Bulls beating the Heat the same way they ended the Pacers’ undefeated start: hot shooting. 61% from the floor, 6-for-6 beyond the arc.
I won't steer you wrong ALL the time......emphasis on "ALL"
The only reason I’m still watching this Knicks-Nets “game” is for Charles Barkley’s commentary. Brutally honest and entertaining.

I would be angry and bitter if I was unjustly jailed for 27 years. Nelson Mandella emerged from that and changed the world. Bless him.
