Still scoreless in the 19th minute. #indyeleven had been controlling play, but Carolina with two corners in the last 2 minutes.

Michael Pointer

BTW: #Burt is a former Butler standout. Rookie season of pro soccer. Originally from Elkhart.

Michael Pointer

Carolina's Jordan Burt with a yellow card in sixth minute. Still scoreless. #indyeleven

Michael Pointer

Definitely a sellout. Place is jammed except for the new club seats. those fans don't want to leave the air conditioned boxes. #indyeleven

Sen. Donnelly, Mayor Ballard address the crowd along with owner Ersal Ozdemir addresses crowd.

Michael Pointer

Don't ask me for a scouting report on the #indyeleven. Sommer told me yesterday he will be mixing and matching early in season.

Michael Pointer

#Indyeleven lineup: Nicht (GK); Frias, Norales, Estridge, Hyland (back); Ring, Kleberson, Corrado, Moore, Ramirez (mid); Ambersley (frward).

Michael Pointer

Nice touch: The food trucks and local brews sold on the west end of the stadium.

Michael Pointer

However, I don't know how you pay for a new stadium. As a Marion County taxpayer, I'm a little suspicious these days. #indyeleven

Michael Pointer

Carroll Stadium with its share of history, but definitely antiquated. Hard seeing this as a long-term home for pro soccer.

Michael Pointer

Just walked around the stadium for a bit. Warning: Be patient. Some long lines. #indyeleven

Michael Pointer

By the way: I'm going with Pacquiao tonight over Bradley in a close decision. Tremendous respect for both fighters. Should be great.

Michael Pointer

Temperature and sun are wonderful, but wind will be a challenge for the players tonight. #indyeleven

Michael Pointer

Sunny and windy at IUPUI's Carroll Stadium for #indyeleven's inaugural game against the Carolina Railhawks. We are covering. Follow along.

For those asking ‘Why not give Copeland more time?,' Vogel reiterated that it's a depth issue. "He’s behind (cont) tl.gd/n_1s1cf9g

Scott Agness

Vogel said hesitancy and tentativeness stood out on film. Heat's pressure resulted in defections and caused IND to become reluctant to pass.

Scott Agness

No update on Andrew Bynum. In sandals, he joined his teammates for FTs but didn’t participate. http://t.co/DzaUvFtNtz

Scott Agness

Usual starters on Sunday, Frank Vogel said. Coach is having a “lengthy” edit made to pinpoint ways Roy can fundamentally improve rebounding.

Light practice for the Pacers today. Treatment, film session and FTs. http://t.co/PoPjo5xnjb

New Blog: Sticking with Hibbert pointless for Pacers bit.ly/1ibrmNm @Conrad Brunner

Lavoy Allen

Waiting at the airport at 3am in the cold, got no choice but to love Pacer fans! #PacerNation

Michael Pointer

Might have to re-think my #Pacers prediction. Losing in Miami is no shame, but Hibbert's performance is MAJOR concern.

Michael Pointer

A #Pacers v.p. on Twitter ripping an Indy area media type for a post dogging Roy Hibbert. Really?? C'mon man.

Candace Buckner

Last word for tonight: #Heat play tomorrow night in ATL. Miami is 10-6 on the second night of a back-to-back.

Michael Pointer

Grew up in St. Louis and still big hockey fan. #Blues collapse going on makes #Pacers look like a small malfunction. Make it stop.

Candace Buckner

And this talk of landing at No. 2 to avoid the Bulls is not looking good either. Chicago up to 3rd seed. Would be potential 2nd round oppo

Scott Agness

Paul George on the No. 1 seed: "Now it’s not in our hands, and we’re perfectly fine with that."

Scott Agness

Hibbert: "To tell you the truth, I felt great; but when you get down by 20-something, you’re in a little bit of a panic mode."

Scott Agness

Two head-scratching postgame comments from the Pacers…

Candace Buckner

West on seeding: "It is what it is. We haven't played well enough to be the top seed. We get what we deserve, I guess."

Candace Buckner

More Lance: "But I like us as underdogs & us coming after people. I feel like we got to get used to playing under pressure & being on top."

Candace Buckner

Lance: "Whatever God put us @, I feel like if He puts us in the second place or He puts us in first place we got to live up 2 the challenge.

Candace Buckner

Lance was quite energetic after the game, trying to pump up the positivity. That's who he is, so he tried his best to promote 'We're No. 2!'

Scott Agness

Bosh on Roy: “We want to challenge him every time & test his conditioning level. If he’s going to be down there…we r going to make him work"

Candace Buckner

They clearly wanted it - even as late as this morning when PG called this a "game that we have to go out and go get." Team not ready, yo

Candace Buckner

I thought it would be a mental obstacle if the #Pacers didn't get the top seed, but to see them backtrack like it's nothing is crazy

Candace Buckner

Paul George: "Now (No. 1 seed) is not in our hands, and we're perfectly fine with that." Oh, really now?

Candace Buckner

Stephenson: "I feel like we’re better as the underdog and we just got to keep playing hard and stay positive with each other."

Candace Buckner

Seemed to me, 2nite was the 1st time #Pacers concede the No. 1 seed to #Heat. Before they talked about not deserving it but 2nite was diff

Scott Agness

Miami, the aggressors, forced 16 turnovers and pulled away with a 16-0 run to open the second half. REWIND: on.nba.com/1eipbbg

Candace Buckner

After the game, an television reporter asked Vogel if Hibbert was healthy as a follow-up question to why he only had one rebound.

Candace Buckner

George Hill, near whisper: "It doesn’t mean anything. It’s one loss. It would’ve helped us but it don’t mean anything."

Candace Buckner

A couple of the assts sat around w/ players. Popeye Jones was holding a stat sheet and talking to Hibbert. Later, Dan Burke and Roy chatted

Candace Buckner

#Pacers talked about the turnovers that buried them in the third quarter. At game No. 80, that's still a problem.

Candace Buckner

G. Hill sat motionless in front of his locker, clearly agitated. At one point, his head was bowed and Vogel had to come over and talk to him

Scott Agness

#Heat dominated the “effort” categories: 18 fast-break points, +18 points in the paint and 16 second-chance points.

Conrad Brunner

Absolutely ridiculous performance in 2nd half by #Pacers. First unit is broken and needs to be fixed. Start with benching Hibbert.

Scott Agness

Pacers lose in Miami, 98-86, and fall behind the Heat by a half-game. LeBron went off for 36 points. 22 for PG.

Candace Buckner

Final: #Heat win 97-86 over the #Pacers. And the problems continue...

Candace Buckner

Roy's first rebound, y'all.

Candace Buckner

With 3:14 remaining, #Heat lead 91-79. That third quarter start just doomed the #Pacers … shotmaking, defense, boneheaded decisions

Conrad Brunner

OK, so now we know we can't blame fatigue. Next up on the #Pacers implosion checklist?

Conrad Brunner

Nice to see #Pacers back to blaming officials for their own problems. They're back. And by they, I mean ... well, you know.

Scott Agness

David West’s night is over. 18 points, eight rebounds and six fouls. Heat 91, Pacers 77 with 3:21 left.

Candace Buckner

David West picks up his sixth foul against LeBron James and immediately runs to the #Pacers bench. West is done with 18 pts, 8 rebs

Conrad Brunner

Roy has played a despicable game tonight. George has simply been awful.

Conrad Brunner

Seems like GHill and RHibbert are still really, really, really, tired. Perhaps they should both be given the rest of the year off.

Candace Buckner

American Airlines Arena just played a snippet of "Slam" - the song used in Paul George's commercial - after that LeBron James dunk. #bloop

Scott Agness

LeBron back in for the final 5:25, with the Heat up 16. Pacers’ offense hasn’t had any flow since the first frame...

Candace Buckner

9-0 run for the #Heat after the #Pacers pulled within nine and had the momentum going into the timeout.

Scott Agness

Pacers had cut it to nine, then Turner was T’d up. Since: Nine straight Miami points. 85-67, 8:05 4Q.

Candace Buckner

After cutting it down to nine points, #Heat get three points off that possession thanks to Turner's technical and Haslem's dunk

Scott Agness

After Miami called timeout, Evan Turner was T’d up. Not a smart play in the midst of a run.

Scott Agness

C.J. Watson’s elbow apparently no problem. He buries his second 3-pointer to trim it to nine. 13-0 run for Indiana.

Candace Buckner

Turner, nice kid and all. But tonight is NOT his night. Time for him to take a seat, or several.

Candace Buckner

Then, walking to timeout, it seems as though Evan Turner picked up a technical for arguing last call.

Candace Buckner

But not for C.J. Watson. In transition, Watson knocks down his second 3-pointer and pulls #Pacers to within 76-67

Candace Buckner

Miserable night for Evan Turner.

Candace Buckner

Two #Pacers possessions, two #Heat fouls.

Candace Buckner

Mahinmi with his fifth rebound of the night

Candace Buckner

#Heat lead 76-62. If the #Pacers starters are so refreshed, play 'em through the 4th. Find a unit that works and stick with it.

Scott Agness

For as poor as they started the third, outscored 20-2, it’s just a 14-point game after three quarters. LeBron has 30.

Candace Buckner

This isn't Bankers Life, so those 30-foot jump shots ain't falling, PG. #Pacers score 20 points… after falling down 21

Candace Buckner

PG gets to the hole for his second three-point play possibility in this quarter. This time, makes the FT. #Pacers still down 76-62

Candace Buckner

LeBron is toying with 'em now, a free-throw line fading jumper to the wrong side? Uhm… Yeah. 30 points and counting

Mark Montieth

I used to think Heat playoff hopes hinged on Wade's health. Now I think they might be better without him. It elevates LeBron's play.

Candace Buckner

Paul George gets the continuation and the three-point play but misses the FT. #Pacers down 71-52

Mark Montieth

Oh-oh. Here comes the sarcasm.

Scott Agness

Scola has all six of the Pacers’ third-quarter points. Hibbert and Hill still without a FG.

Candace Buckner

When Scola has all your points in the quarter, something has gone wrong.

Candace Buckner

With 5:16 remaining, #Pacers already in the penalty.

Candace Buckner

Okay, so with 6 on the clock, the #Pacers get their first field goal of the third quarter… still don't get the joy of seeing ball drop thru

Mark Montieth

Pacers keep offering you a chair, then pull it away as you sit down.

Scott Agness

#TurnoversForTouchdowns … Miami’s lead has swelled to 21 less than six minutes into the 3rd. Pacers have to regroup … fast.

Candace Buckner

No Dwyane Wade, and here the #Pacers are getting rolled by 21 points. So much for pressing the reset button in Milwaukee.

Candace Buckner

We're at the midway point and the #Pacers still don't have a field goal for the third quarter.

Scott Agness

David West (10pts, 6rebs), has to head to the bench with four fouls. Scola in.

Candace Buckner

Bad to worse. David West picks up his fourth foul on a ticky tack play against James.

Scott Agness

This one is getting out of hand fast; Miami 14-0 run to start the second half. Pacers down 17.

Candace Buckner

Second time #Heat have missed the initial layup, only to have a guy in white show up for the outback while guy in blue flatfooted
