Finishing 9th, just on the outside of the playoffs, is worst-case scenario. Bright side: Finished 10th in 2010, drafted Paul George.
Pacers' (38-44) season is over as they fall in Memphis, 95-83. First time under Frank Vogel — 5 years — they haven't reached the playoffs.
An avalanche of injuries & this Pacers team fought and was in contention for the playoffs until the seasons final game. A lot to be proud of
That was huge.
... absolutely nobody can get a rebound when they need one.
Meanwhile, back on the court ...
Paul George has been favoring his left leg, even landing on it the other night after his 2 dunks. Strains will occur when over-compensating
Sore left calf for Paul George. Return questionable. (I'd say doubtful.) Still, good news in the grander scheme. Compensation, most likely.
Sorry, trainers appear to be working on L leg of PG.
Looks like asst. trainer Carl Eaton was evaluating Paul George's left* leg, not the one he fractured this summer.
Oh, my. Paul George carried to the bench.
Paul George having to be carried to the end of the bench. The night gets even worse...
Uh-oh. PG needs to be helped off court with 10:37 left, no weight on right leg.
Paul George is carried to the bench by Donald Sloan and David West.
Welp, Pacers down 12 with 12 minutes to play. G-Hill and CJ Miles shouldering the load.
Marc Gasol has been a menace.
Did Jordan Morris look more than a little nervous in that post-game interview? Dude was shaking.
Paul George just doesn't have it tonight. Plays like that show the rust.
Here comes Trece.
CJ Miles is goin all in tonight
Roy’s got to quit arguing and just play. Control what you can control.
Might be worth Vogel taking a technical foul if this keeps up.
Again, mas C.J. Pacers need mas C.J.
Common foul on Marc Gasol, just two shots
Refs will review Marc Gasol's foul on Hibbert to see if it's flagrant.
Just no matchup for Gasol. But I still think West is the best one. Despite that last foul.
Solomon Hill wasn't even looking at the rim when he threw that shot up
Alright, same starters here at the 2nd quarter. Vogel's not expanding his rotation. Season could end in 24 minutes of game action.
Going to be a steep climb for the Pacers, but it’s been like that all year. Down 54-41 in Memphis; they’re 13-33 when trailing at half.
…but when Jordan Adams is making shots like that?!! Welp.
C.J. Miles may have to go for 40 tonight
Someone just tweeted suggesting Hibbert has been on the bench too long, bringing the season total of that ledger to ... one.
Pacers call timeout, must regroup before intermission as Grizzlies’ lead balloons to 13 via 18-2 run.
Do these instant grass soccer fields ever work? Remember the game here in Indy at LOS two summers ago?
Largest lead for the Grizzles, 39-31
Brooklyn beats Orlando, meaning Indiana MUST win to advance to the playoffs. Lose — and they’re done.
No doubt about it now. Nets going to win, so Pacers have to win to make playoffs.
College soccer in the U.S. looking pretty good on that Jordan Morris goal. Well done.
Stuckey needs to play point tonight. Sloan just not healthy enough with that toe.
Paul George picks up two quick fouls here in the 2nd Q, not even two minutes have expired. But no movement from the bench, he stays on
Remember Bogdanovic? He has 25 points and his last jumper put the Nets up by nine on Orlando with 4mins left.
Paul George misses the layup, but gets the tip-in. Again, I like the second-effort lift by the kid
Gasol has 9 points and 5 rebounds and played the entire 1st Q
Too cute. Plus that pass was telegraphed
Mahinmi not only got that tip, he made George Hill's rebound possible at the defensive end to set it up. Kept it alive.
Brooklyn and Orlando knotted at 75 as the fourth quarter begins.
Looks like David West’s left ankle. He missed 15 games at the beginning of the year with a “tough, tough sprain” to his right ankle.
Magic and Nets tied after three quarters.
Luis Scola will replace David West after this time-out
Frank Vogel rushes to call time-out at 5:53 at the first sight of West laboring. He walks to the bench w/o help and takes a seat
West rolls ankle ... non-contact.
David West seems to have hurt his left foot/ankle
George Hill recreates that game-winning shot in Charlotte to give Pacers 12-9 lead.
Good for the Pacers to see shots go down early. 10 points in the first three minutes. They managed just 16 in the 1Q last night.
Miles and Hill haven't let up from last night. Besides that first play where Miles didn't know how close he was to rim, they're still sharp
Courtney Lee ... yet another Pike guy who can shoot. It's in our blood.
