Oh, and here comes Bill Spooner back on the court during this timeout at the 5:29 mark. Maybe everyone's catching allergic reax to this gm

Candace Buckner

Pointed out at press row, lead ref Bill Spooner didn't return to the floor after the first half. Only Scott Wall & Marat Kogut officiating.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert having one of those "Where Is He?" sort of games. Steps into midrange to knock down only his 2nd FG. He's played 16 mins

Candace Buckner

They play "Git Yo' Freak On" pretty much every time the Greak Freak scores here. Never "Super Freak," which is kinda disappointing.

Candace Buckner

Scola hit with a Flagrant 1… seems like he's punished for being 1. behind the play, 2. 34 years old and 3. no ability to jump.

Candace Buckner

Play currently under review as a flagrant foul.

Candace Buckner

G. Hill scores then completely loses Michael Carter-Williams on the return trip down the court. MCW goes to rim, fouled by Scola

Michael Pointer

As efficient as Notre Dame was offensively this season, this should not come as a shock. Still feels like it.

Candace Buckner

Halftime: #Bucks lead 59-47. C.J. Miles scores 15 in the quarter for a team-high 17. But MKE's Ersan Ilyasova has 22 to lead all

Candace Buckner

We've still got 4 minutes to go in this first half, and Ersan Ilyasova already has reached his season-high of 22 points

Candace Buckner

Lavoy Allen left alone on an island as MCW sneaks behind him and strips the ball. That turnover has got to be on his teammate

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles vs Everybody in this quarter

Candace Buckner

After back to back C.J. Miles 3 pointers, #Pacers have cut the lead to 41-31. IND has made four in the quarter

Candace Buckner

Looks like they could use some fabric softener on Bango's mascot costume.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have discovered the joy of the 3-point line this quarter but still trail 41-23 at the 8:32 mark

Candace Buckner

#Pacers no-showing in MKE. #Bucks score 34 points & hit 73.7%. IND happy the 1st Q horn has finally blown. #StuffNBAHasToRetweet

Candace Buckner

You know it's bad when Vogel has had to use as many timeouts this Q (three) as the field goals his team has made (4)

Candace Buckner

#Bucks up 29-11. #Pacers shooting 25% and butchering the game of basketball. Time to check my bracket.

Mark Montieth

So much for taking momentum from last night's win in DC.

Candace Buckner

As @Charles F. Gardner has pointed out, this is the only game on tonight. So @NBA will be forced to RT some pretty crappy updates.

Candace Buckner

#Bucks hitting 61.5% from the floor and lead 20-9 with still 4:17 to go in the first quarter. Slow starts have doomed 'em, especially tonite

Candace Buckner

Hey, did the #Pacers play last night or something? Sure doesn't look like it….

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill finally breaks #Pacers streak of five straight misses from the floor w/ a 3-pointer. IND also way too sloppy in half court

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles checks back into the game.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles is now walking back onto the court and joining the #Pacers huddle

Candace Buckner

Vogel needs a timeout, #Pacers still need a bucket. After Michael Carter-Williams scores layup, #Bucks go up 10-1 at 7:55 mark

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles literally skips off the court and heads back to the locker room. Damjan Rudež in the game now

Candace Buckner

Still getting replies for the D West-Messi tweet. Calm down, soccer aficionados. It's OK for one person not to like ur sport. Really, it is.

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola is starting in place of David West, per #Pacers

Candace Buckner

Vogel finished his thought with: "So when Roy wasn’t playing well, I decided to play Lavoy Allen in his minutes."

Candace Buckner

Asked Vogel abt his decision to play Allen over Hibbert last nite. Said didn't like the way "we were playing" and needed a "spark."

Candace Buckner

Last night, Vogel went to Lavoy Allen for a "spark," wouldn't be surprised to see more of him tonight once again in a backup role.

Candace Buckner

So, Rodney Stuckey and David West will both miss this game.

Candace Buckner

From #Pacers PR, David West is OUT for tonight's game with an allergic reaction.

Candace Buckner

Again, #Pacers enter tonight's game tied with the #Celtics in record but BOS hold the tiebreaker and therefore, the 8th playoff spot.

Candace Buckner

More Vogel: "We still have a lot of basketball to play and fortunate that we’re still in the mix."

Candace Buckner

Frank Vogel: "Losing 6 straight in March when you’re on the cusp of the 8th seed... could be a death sentence and hasn’t been so far."

I can see it now. Other bball coaches start willing $$ to former players, and have to out-do one another. Who's going to leave the most?

Chris Singleton

Got to do the ground work before anything

Scott Agness

Pacers list Rodney Stuckey (sore left calf) as questionable, Paul George out tonight in Milwaukee. Probably better off letting Stuckey heal.

Scott Agness

Last night: #Pacers returned to the win column, then mingled with #Messi bit.ly/1Gt8dCD - http://t.co/au8cnbFL1X

Funny line from Troy Murphy. Says he misses socks the most. "The socks were unbelievable. There’s something about NBA socks.” (@CountryWP33)

Great night in DC! We got a win and got to meet the Argentinian national team led by Messi, Agüero and Mascerano ⚽️ http://t.co/ydNt5bWsS6

Candace Buckner

West would've been the first to the bus for the photo session haha RT @Mark Montieth: If he was a boxer, West would know him.

Candace Buckner

With all these #Pacers posting pics w/ Messi, don't expect to see one from D. West. Asked if he was going to meet the star: "Who's that?!"

Candace Buckner

Asked West abt his runner/floater that put the #Pacers up 3 w/ 57.9 to go, G. Hill, next to his locker, called out: "The magic hook!"

Mark Montieth

Has anyone ever had their image improved as quickly and dramatically as @laettnerbball ?

Candace Buckner

David West: "I just thought we stayed in the fight even when we were down 10." #Pacers trailed 88-78 w/ 7:41 remaining in 4th Q.

George Hill

C.J. Miles on snapping the 6-game losing streak: "It just takes some of that weight off."

Candace Buckner

#Celtics lead the series w/ IND 2-1 with the final meeting on April 1 in Boston.

Candace Buckner

With Boston's loss tonight, #Pacers are virtually tied w/ #Celtics for 8th spot. But that loss on March 14 was huge - BOS has tiebreaker

Candace Buckner

Marcin Gortat gave an honest answer when asked abt the mood in the #Wizards locker room after the 103-100 L "Disgusting. Very disgusting."

Meanwhile, the Spurs are on track to score 142 tonight...

Greg Rappaport

What a huge win tonight for the #Pacers. George Hill saves the day again.

Candace Buckner

After gm, Damjan Rudež was smiling big. Not just bc of the win. Was waiting for Scola to finish dressing so he can tag along and meet Messi

Candace Buckner

Also, it helped that John Wall had five fouls. Had to defend G. Hill cautiously on last play

Candace Buckner

Hill said he knew once Nene committed to D West to defend a possible pick-&-pop, he would have straight lane to the basket.

Candace Buckner

George Hill on his GW play: "Just trying to get to my float game, my right hand layup quick."

Scott Agness

Boston loses at home to Miami but remains in 8th in the East with tiebreaker on the Pacers. 9. Pacers (31-40) 10. Nets (30-40) 11. Hornets

Candace Buckner

George Hill scores 29 points, including 12 in the 4th Q and the game winning finger roll. That's what you call Capitol Hill, y'all.

Mark Montieth

George Hill has gone from Most Misunderstood Pacer to Most Valuable Pacer.

Candace Buckner

George Hill with another game-winning basket. Zips to the rim for the layup. #Pacers snap losing streak with 103-101 win

Scott Agness

Knew that play was coming from a mile away … and still, George Hill scores to end the losing streak. 103-101 in DC.

Scott Agness

John Wall always seems to go off against the #Pacers. Season-best 34 points tonight. … and a HUGE 3 there to keep #Wizards alive.

Candace Buckner

Wall drains the 3 around a Gortat screen that G. Hill got caught in. All tied up at 101 with 11.2 seconds remaining

Mark Montieth

Pacers have so much trouble getting the ball in at times like this. West was open for the pass.

Candace Buckner

David West runner and the #Pacers lead 99-96 with 53.9 remaining. West with 10 points, 11 rebounds

Mark Montieth

If you watch Solomon Hill, he's as much a coach on the floor as much as anyone. Not bad for a second year player.

Scott Agness

Great defense leading to easy scores late for the #Pacers. That’s been missing lately. Still head-scratching how poor they’ve shot FTs.

Candace Buckner

G. Hill with the steal and fast break. Great PG matchup between Hill and Wall right now

Candace Buckner

After falling down by 10 points in the quarter, #Pacers within 94-91 with 3:26 remaining.

Candace Buckner

… Make that 12 points for John Wall in this 4th Q. After jumper, #Wizards go up 90-80 with 638 remaining

Candace Buckner

John Wall with 10 points in the first five minutes of the 4th Q

Scott Agness

Good to see Rasual Butler playing for DC. Told me earlier this year he hopes to play another yr or 2. Then, wants to get into broadcasting.
