Hill down again, holding left shoulder again.
George Hill on the ground, left shoulder again
An 11-1 start to the second quarter has the Pacers back to within 10. Turnovers have been a problem. Eight already.
Allowing ridiculous displays like that from Lance without repercussion has contributed to this malaise.
Lance Stephenson, Paul George and Frank Vogel all threw up their arms as if to say "what travel?" but nevertheless, it's a turnover
But this is stretching the boundaries.
You say the Pacers started badly. I say they have learned the intracies of the Theorem.
Evan Turner makes a basket (I hear sarcastic applause all the way from Indy) then Stephenson draws a foul. Some positive mo happening
David West, last night: “…we’ve got to have a level of combativeness and competitiveness that elevates where we’ve been."
That was a quick hook for Donald Sloan
Man, I really, really hope we aren't looking at 2002-03 all over again.
"… and the worst from the Pacers." Fan, you are absolutely correct. You don't know how right you are.
Overheard during game's first beer run… Fan to usher: "That was the best 1st quarter I've seen out of the Bobcats all year...
Pacers with their worst quarter of the season, scoring just 8 points (on 4-of-20 shooting). Bobcats lead, 28-8.
…and the shots just keep on bricking.
David West, frustrated, checks out here within the final minute. Takes warmups from ball boy and throws them to the ground.
Al Jefferson 12, Pacers 6. Indiana off to a brutal start, down 17 with 2:54 left in the 1st quarter.
Al Jefferson does not respect your interior defense, Mahinmi
Regular backup point guard C.J. Watson has a sprained right elbow. Sloan replaces George HIll
Don’t like the body language and energy of the Pacers. Vogel has already burned two timeouts, as they’ve gotten down 19-6.
Donald Sloan, warmup off, about to check in
Nice block, quick outlet, and George Hill trots upcourt rather than trying to make something happen in transition.
CJ Watson has a sprained right elbow, suffered Sunday vs. Utah, so it’s doubtful that he plays. Donald Sloan the first Pacer off the bench.
Pacers have had some good looks, but have missed their first five attempts; Charlotte up 5-0.
Playing the role of back tapper will be Roy Hibbert
From the empty seats, it would appear Charlotte is less than electrified by the Bobcats' playoff pursuit.
Kid did a good job …innocent eyes and cherubic voice, he's going to be a star one day. Just stay away from Bieber.
So the kid who plays "Young Stevie Wonder," "Young Michael Jackson" and "Young Berry Gordy" in Motown the Musical performed the nat'l anthem
Watson ordered some chicken fingers and fries. Not exactly the pre game meal a health conscious guy like CJ eats an hour before tipoff.
Tale tell sign for Watson being out: After warmups, he & athletic trainer Carl Eaton powwow'd with Vogel to discuss his limitations. Then...
I really would like to give up Twitter for Lent, but don't think the bosses would go for it. Thus, I plow ahead. Thanks for the follow.
Name some of the worst rappers.....GO
Doc Rivers' kid has some interesting facial hair action going on right now. It's like an inverted stubble fade
Lance Stephenson said the ‘Sir Lance A Lent’ shoes that he wore tonight were designed & meant for the All-Star game… http://t.co/YyolMbYw7l
Odd stat of the night: Paul George posted his 8th double-double tonight (26pts, 12rebs). His last five have all been in Pacers losses.
Tough one tonight, gotta bounce back tomorrow night in Charlotte!
"…and he hit it. Sometimes you play good D but better offense."
G. Hill: "You try not to give up nothing to the basket. Maybe a jump shot over you and a fadeaway jump shot falling back is a tough shot…"
...We just got to show ourselves responsible enough to handle it.” -- David West
“We’re going to compete all the way down to the last game of the regular season like we know they are...
“That’s a goal that we’re fighting for and it’s still within reach,” David West said about holding the top seed in the conference.
Handful of Pacers were tuned into the end of Heat-Rockets. Rockets win allows Indiana (46-14) to maintain a two-game lead in the East.
West, Mahinmi and Butler had a discussion on the side in the locker room postgame. Wouldn’t reveal what was said.
GHill “definitely” thought his and-1 3-pointer should’ve counted. Didn’t hear a whistle til after the got it off. At least expected a review
PG said the need to protect the basket left 3s open for GS. Was disappointed they didn’t apply pressure until the last five minutes.
David West: “Mentally, we’ve got to be way tougher than we are because it’s time. It’s just time."
DWest: “They were too comfortable & I don’t think we stayed the course, in terms of our aggressiveness & our fight. … Too little, too late."
Pacers now on the road for five of their next six games, beginning tomorrow night in Charlotte.
Paul George escaped Iguodala and got off a great look, but it didn’t drop. Pacers fall, 98-96. Thompson with 16 in the 4th. DWest had 27.
Warriors sent it in the right corner to their hot hand, Klay Thompson, who sinks a fadeaway. Pacers down 2 with just 0.6 secs.
PG misses step-back 3, Warriors chase down pinball, call timeout with 10.9 left. Wouldn't mind seeing 5 more minutes of this. You?
Paul George misses short on the go-ahead basket. Warriors’ ball out of the timeout, 10.9 secs. Curry?
Curry has 4 TOs in the game, three here in the fourth quarter
Out of a timeout, Curry stepped out of bounds. Pacers ball, tied at 96. 46.1 seconds. Pacers 2-2 this season in games decided by 3 or less.
Paul George ties the game again at 96-96…. less than a minute remaining
Pacers team doctor headed the Warriors’ locker room, presumably to look at Andre Iguodala.
Nice Roy impression there, Paul
Looked like PG was playing for contact there and not to score
Another strip on Curry... This time Paul George swipes him and goes to the rack, gets fouled by Thompson (smart)
David West to Roy Hibbert…another big time mid range jumper
