HoopsHype Indiana Pacers twitter
Pacers down 9 entering 4th, just like Orlando. Does Damo have another 16 point quarter in him?
Great find by West, his pass to Stuckey leads to a layup, trimming the Pacers’ deficit to 9. Pacers 3-25 this season when trailing after 3Q
Quite a run by Indiana to get the deficit to 9 at the end of the 3rd quarter. George Hill is creating just about everything out there.
I do believe Ian Mahinmi pushed his teammate Damjan Rudez into that foul.
Pacers down by 13 but Hill, Rudez, and Mahinmi check in with fresh legs. Hopefully Hill and Damjan can get hot again.
Vogel making wholesale changes with Hill, Rudez and Mahinmi coming in with 3:50 remaining in 3rd Q
Roy Hibbert lost on that last possession. Wasn't watching the ball or his man
Kyle Lowry acting like an All-Star starter now
Kyle Lowry starting to get hot for TOR. Has made 3 of Raps 5 FGs this half. 16 points for the game.
David West catches an air ball at the end of the shot clock and lays it in, but after the buzzer went off. Shot counted but will review
Roy Hibbert back to his tumbling ways. Lost count of how many times he's hit the floor tonight from contact
I think people in the cheap seats could hear Vogel screaming "Screen the s$%@ outta 'em, White!"
Bruno Caboclo just walked by the scorer's table. Talk about having a baby face
Raptors shot 18 foul shots, Pacers shot 9 in first half. Tells you something about their offenses, and why Toronto leads 50-44.
Immediately, Lavoy Allen dusts off the cobwebs and hits a baseline jumper.
Lavoy Allen coming into the game, replacing Roy Hibbert.
Roy Hibbert really, really wanted the ball against Hansborough in the post that last possession. Teammates looked the other way 3 times
Tyler Hansbrough looks like he's shrunk. So has his scoring average, to 3 points.
Just left the Boys and Girls Club in Grand Rapids. Always a humbling experience!
Donald Sloan checking into the game. Glad to see it. I feel like he's been playing too well to relegate to the bench.
Scola throws a pass intended for Rudez three rows deep into the stands. Next play, Rudez commits a turnover while trying to find Scola.
Great ball movement for a 3 from George Hill and then a runner at the buzzer from Hill. Pacers lead 28-21.
George Hill, making this game look easy. After a corner three he puts up a buzzer-beating layup to end the first Q. Pacers lead 28-21
Damo enters game to deafening standing ovation. Well, maybe polite applause.
Damjan Rudez gets a nice applause. Clearly quite a few fans tuned in for his 16-point fourth quarter against ORL.
Rodney Stuckey's been good thus far on that little pull up. 8 points already
Tyler Hansbrough coming in, too. His numbers are the lowest of his six-year NBA career. 3pts, 3rebs in about 14mins/game.
George Hill coming in after this timeout. Still limited to ~20mins/game. Hill prefers coming off bench, helps ensure he can play final 5mins
These Pacers are blowing my mind right now. Looking great on both ends are leading 15-8
David West denies Patrick Patterson on the pick-n-pop
DeMar DeRozan misses dunk on Roy Hibbert, get fouled and keeps going toward an empty baseline seat to plop down and tie up his shoes
Nice transition D by Solomon Hill to angle into DeMar DeRozan's path and stop the fast break.
Pacers with a 9-0 lead on Toronto. Made 4-of-7 shots as Raptors have missed all four shots + two turnovers.
Pacers in danger of violating the 10-point rule. Lead 9-0.
Raptors making a habit of this I guess? They fell behind 15-0 to the Sixers a couple days ago.
Pacers jump out to a 7-0 lead behind some swarming defense. Everyone seems to be on the same page.
CJ Miles missing his 2nd straight game w/ a left groin strain. He tested it at shootaround, but it was painful to run, cut, be in a stance.
Best part of the Pacers intro video is definitely Rudez standing there unsure of what to do.
The All-Star dunk contest is returning to the classic format, NBA announced. Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee, Zach LaVine, and Antetokounmpo.
Vogel provided little in terms of an update on Paul George. He's increasing his workload, but it's still all non-contact work.
Pacers getting some shots in before the 7PM tip tonight against Toronto. http://t.co/9vPjZuxnE5
George Hill (groin) still on a minutes restriction, likely for at least a couple more gms. He had "pretty significant soreness" after ORL gm
Vogel about to address the media pregame. Hoping he says more than Lynch.
Marshawn Lynch Has A Cold
Someone covering SB should call former Cowboy RB Duane Thomas. He refused to talk at VI. Had totally different attitude later -- too late.
Maybe getting an answer out of Marshawn Lynch is like pulling Excalibur from the stone. Only one Journo can get a response. WHO WILL IT BE?
According to Vogel, C.J. Miles will not play tonight (left groin strain). And George Hill will still be on a minutes restriction (~20 min).
Happy bday to my teammate Manny!
If you want it, go get it.
