Rodney Stuckey suddenly a popular figure following Pacers practice today. http://t.co/loXtIgNFu1
... because Keady knew the game was going to be remembered more for Knight throwing the chair than his team winning the game.
First game Knight didn't wear a sports coat and tie. Gene Keady's postgame emphasis: "the story of this game is that Purdue won" (cont)
Proud to say I was at the "chair throw" game 30 yrs ago. You never want to miss historic moments. It was a classic for many reasons (cont)
Not a slight against Evansville, Indiana State, Ball State or IUPUI. But Valparaiso and IPFW have better chances in conference tourneys.
If Valparaiso and IPFW win their conference tournaments, could be an amazing year for Indiana in NCAAs. As many as six could get in.
Respect yourself and others will too
"He’s eager just 2 b a part of it and get back out there," West said. "I’m behind him, I’m going to support him. I just want him 2 b safe."
Asked about his teammate Paul George's comments over All-Star weekend on returning soon, David West smiled & said: "He's crazy."
Seems Rodney Stuckey is like Lady Gaga. More talented than we suspected.
And yes, the Theorem held up again. Pacers down 12 after 1st quarter, came back to win. When will teams learn not to go 10 or more early?
Rodney Stuckey's middle name is Norvell. He hasn't been playing like a Norvell lately, has he?
Man I needed that nap, but that means not a lot sleep tonight smh
Vogel on Curry's absence: "It certainly changes things" with not having to defend him but said GSW still had enough weapons.
After Rodney Stuckey appeared to tweak his ankle early, Vogel said he read his body language and it said: "don't you dare take me out."
Pacers topple the NBA's finest 104-98. Game over.
Stuckey headed to the line, looks likes the Pacers' winning ways will continue.
Pacers dodging some bullets here. A tough trip to the free throw line.
Where would the Pacers be without Stuckey and Miles? the two have combined for 41 tonight
that was HANDS DOWN, the best passing sequence I've seen from the Pacers this entire year. West with the touch pass to Miles, IND up 101-97
One game after scoring 30, Rodney Stuckey's got 28 now!
Ghill with a zero hesitation 3 from the middle. That was a big one.
In the three previous quarters, David West was hurting more than helping. But these last 3 possessions have made up for it.
West is straight up going to war with Green in the post. Really fun to watch that matchup.
He hasn't had many tonight, but that was a good defensive rebound by Roy Hibbert after Thompson's miss… esp after he broke away to double
West hits the jumper with crunch time approaching. Pacers lead 93-90. Perfect execution the last two possessions
Klay Thompson gets the lead back for the Dubs. He's at 34 on the night.
Rudez connects from the baseline, Pacers now up 7.
C.J. Watson is putting on a falling clinic tonight.
Stuckey's 3 is confirmed. That was about as close as can be.
Refs reviewing if Stuckey's shot beat the buzzer
At the end of every quarter, the ball has been in Rodney Stuckey's hands and he's had to jack something up. This time, a 3 banks thru.
A.I. gives a vintage dunk for the crowd at BLF.
Klay Thompson, not much of a talker, shakes his head and says "bad call" after the offensive foul against David Lee
Ian Mahinmi drives left and finishes (!) the hook over David Lee for a possible 3-point play
Ian Mahinmi barrels into the lane and gets an and-1.
It's the Klay Thompson and Rodney Stuckey show. As you predicted
Stuckey auditioning to become the third Splash Brother
3.J. Miles, followed by a dunk by Solomon Chill. Pacers tie it up.
Speaks highly of Vogel's respect for George HIll's defense that he has him on Thompson
The start of the second half has looked a bit like the start of the game. Indiana starters still trying to find their footing.
Four fouls for Roy Hibbert. He's out for the rest of the third quarter.
Hibbert doing his best to keep his composure after getting called for his 4th foul.
C.J. Miles has walked over to the scorer's table, he'll check in at the next dead ball.
C.J. Watson started the second half in place of C.J. Miles.
I've often considered myself the J.K. Simmons of sports writers. If he wins tonight, I'll be happy.
Call me when Diane Lane or Helen Mirren are on the red carpet. Then I'll watch.
I think there are 3 Pacers halftime acts that involve someone jumping through a hula hoop. But it could be two. Not entirely sure.
Pacers take it into halftime leading Golden State 58-57. Last time they played it was knotted at 50 at the half.
Despite the early fall when he favored his ankle, Rodney Stuckey has played as many minutes as the starters here in 1st half. 6-8 15 pts
West was guilty of that little shove. Late whistle though.
