Not sure why anyone assumed Copeland would start. S. Hill worked w/ starters in practice, and Copeland told me he didn't think he'd start.
Also, Lavoy Allen should be in the rotation tonight. Injuries + his solid play through preseason won him a spot.
Media guides are a luxury in the digital era. But I love them. http://t.co/toAB8ozeLR
Also, expect Nerlens Noel to try to make a track meet out of his matchup tonight w/ Luis Scola. As Brett Brown describes, Noel "is a deer."
"…we have a sort of opportunity with our young group to do some unconventional stuff." Brown on embracing "un-NBA" ball pressure tonight
Brown: "I think the thing that’s kind of un-NBA is full-court pressure, 48 mins…
Sixers have injuries, too. Michael Carter-Williams, Joel Embid, Jason Richardson among 5 players out.
Frank Vogel says Solomon Hill, not Copeland, will start on the wing. He likes he idea of featuring Cope with 2nd unit http://t.co/G2luYwxdvb
Indianapolis -- the colt named after our town -- is a 12-1 shot in Breeders Cup Sprint on Saturday. Has won all three of his starts.
Big news out of Hoosier Park today: Anderson track will host Breeders Crown in 2017. It's the harness equivalent of Breeders Cup.
Who said Pacers-Sixers wasn't an intriguing opening-night matchup? ESPN had a crew at morning shootaround…
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."
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
Waking up to hear about Justin Randle. 19 years old. NBA debut. Broken leg......You gotta feel for the kid.
Damn I didn't wanna see the young boy go down like that! Prayers up @j30_randle! Trust the process God got you!
The Barrel is not a crabs natural living space....
Please show History
Injuries suck don't wish that on anybody
Try me- black mamba lol
Another "Michael Jackson and the Jacksons." C'mon. Stop hating on Jermaine. "Daddy's Home" was the business.
Oooooo. Nice pass, Kob.
That John wall commercial is funny
Quote of the week. “You don’t deteriorate from age, you age from deterioration.” - Joe Weider
More updates on Bird's media availability are soon coming. So watch this space.
Bird on who has stood out: "George Hill is awesome. Awesome training camp. Every day. Not once a week. Every day he was good."
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."
Bird on Paul George: "That means nothing. He’s got a rod in his leg, holding that bone together and it’s gotta heal."
Oh, and anybody impressed with Paul George's shooting and playing 1-on-1 with his pit bull…don't be.
"…& 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
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."
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.
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
Rodney Stuckey plans to play tomorrow. Expects to come off the bench. http://t.co/sn95qBlxfo
Bird: "I think Paul (George) will probably be out all year. We don't know yet but it looks that way."
