Lance now in front of the Pacers’ bench hugging with all of his former teammates, coaches.
S. Hill definitely beat the buzzer. Henderson had checked in for defense but completely lost him on the baseline.
Stuckey, driving on Lance, misses but Solomon Hill’s putback beats the clock. Pacers beat the Hornets, 88-86.
Stuckey air alls the jumper but Solomon Hill there for the offensive rebound and layup. Game winner, it appears
Stuckey with the ball near half court, Lance on him.
Absolutely horrible possession by Kemba Walker: dribble, dribble, dribble, lose dribble, regain dribble, oh crap, give it up for airball.
Pacers and Hornets knotted at 86 with 80 seconds left...
Real quick turn for Scola to attack a sagging Jefferson. Turns into a 3-point play and game tied at 86-86
Stuckey in for the final 2:50 along with Sloan, Hill, Hibbert and Scola
Vogel yells: "thumb down, five" Lance calls out: pick and roll Roy!"
Roy Hibbert 7-of-12 from the field, 18 points and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes.
Ian Mahinmi having a nice night under the glass, too. His offensive rebounds on one possession led to a Stuckey jumper. Ian has 6 boards
Zeller beats Mahinmi down the floor, lays it in as he was fouled. Impressive touch for how fast he was moving … ended 9 rows behind the goal
Cody Zeller ran up about 8 steps after making the layup through a foul.
Once down by as many as 15, Pacers +5 in the 3rd and are within one, 66-65. Scola with 8 of his 12pts in the period.
Scola's working on a nice quarter here. His offensive rebound and putback ties the game at 59-59
Strong move by Stuckey to drive and elbow Zeller out of the way. Refs see it Stuckey's way and call a foul on Cody. And one.
Vogel yelled "Shot!" twice while Copeland had the ball in his hands with the clock winding down from 3 seconds. Shot clock violation.
Roy's knocking down his mid range looks today. Now tied with Jefferson for game-high 16 points.
Better to be down 6 at the half than up 6, most games. You come out more aggressively. If I was a coach, I'd work toward deficits. Ha!
Sloan goes wrap around on his way to a potential buzzer beating layup. Misses it but gets fouled and makes both FTs
Nice battle going on between Al Jefferson and Roy Hibbert. Jefferson has 16pts, Hibbert w/ 12 & 5 …as his agent David Falk watches courtside
Real quick move by Roy Hibbert to get to the hole, doesn't make the reverse layup but at least draws 2nd foul on Al Jefferson
As Mahinmi airballs a FT, I have to wonder if the roof is open here at the Bank. Or maybe the window.
Lance tries okie-doke on Damo, spins and throws up airball from 8 feet.
Biyombo catches an alley oop then cleans up a miss w an offensive reb throw down. Good start for a guy Clifford called out earlier this yr
Fans tried to engage Lance in conversation by Hornets bench. He said nothing, smiled at one comment.
The way you talk, YOUUUU got ittt
Lance still stands at the bench. Should have gone down by Bird, maybe?
First time with A.J. Price and Rodney Stuckey on the floor together
Bad possession from start to finish on that last one
Looking forward to Stuckey - Stephenson match-up. Similar athletes.
Lance series of events: a stepback, a block on Roy, then a PUJIT. Afterwards, no scowl, but he's fired up for sure after the booing
And as soon as I say that... Lance scores twice.
Mad Lance is in the building, y'all.
Seems the Hornets are going to go at Hibbert all night. No wonder Lance isn't scoring as much.
G2 Zone, after Lance Stephenson picks up first foul, chants: "HE'S NOT READY!"
Zeller about to check in for Marvin Williams. And HE GETS SOME BOOS! Ok. Why?
Hibbert knocks down another 15 footer and turns back making one of those "Ooooo" faces. Big Dawg's feeling himself with 7 points
To me, it seems that the fans who cheered went out of their way to block out the boos.
If others say 50/50, I'll go with that. From where I was sitting, the boos drowned the cheers.
More boos than cheers for Lance. Hmmm.
Talked w/ Ian Mahinmi about what Lance is facing. Said it was exhausting for him in San Antonio. Overthink it & have so many requests.
Super agent David Falk in the house tonight. Among his clients, Roy Hibbert.
Vogel on why Lance shouldn't be booed: "He put his heart and soul into this franchise for 4 years ... he should receive a warm welcome."
Vogel on @StephnsonLance: "He poured his heart and soul into this franchise for four years and I think he should receive a warm welcome."
More Vogel: "...I think he poured his heart and soul into this franchise for four years and I think he should receive a warm welcome."
Vogel: "No, I don’t. Nor do I think he should. This is a business, everybody comes a free agent and has to make personal decisions…"
Vogel on Stuckey: "It’s going to be a matter of not watching his injury but watching his wind. We feel like the injury’s behind him."
