Tough break for the #Pacers on that play. Couldn't tell if West tripped, but there was contact from my vantage point.

Candace Buckner

David West gets tossed under the rim and no call. On other end, Chalmers drives and scores. Vogel calls the angriest time-out of the year

Mark Montieth

Banked free throws are often omens.

Mark Montieth

Gotta appreciate Quinn disagreeing with call that favors Pacers. Objectivity, baby.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers down 86-83 after Mahinmi's free throw

Candace Buckner

G. Hill goes around a screen and pops the pull-up jumper. Basket counts and a foul has been called on the #Heat. #Pacers down 86-82

Mark Montieth

We've seen this before. Pacers don't quit, make impressive comeback. Raising the question: can they finish?

Candace Buckner

David West off the backboard and #Pacers trail 84-80 with 2:55 remaining in the game.

Candace Buckner

Rodney Stuckey to the rim and scores through a foul. #Pacers have needed him to be more aggressive. He's up to 8. Deficit down to 84-78

Candace Buckner

Looks like George Hill's going to be right at 20 minutes tonight.

Candace Buckner

woah RT @Chris Herring: Vucevic with 30 and 16 here at MSG.

Candace Buckner

Isn't it something? #Pacers looking much better offensively but the shots are either in and out off the rim. (Stuckey and Sloan)

Candace Buckner

#Heat with four team fouls already and 7 mins still remain

Mark Montieth

The Pacers are within five. As you predicted an hour ago.

Candace Buckner

Ian Mahinmi turnaround hook shot (i know, right!) to slice the lead to 77-72 with 7:20 remaining in the game.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers needing to be near perfect and that's not the case here.

Candace Buckner

Crazy quick crossover for Donald Sloan but couldn't finish at the rim. Next time down, Scola misses midrange J. Offense looking better but..

Mark Montieth

Haslem is the all-time greatest player named Udonis. I think.

Mark Montieth

Donald Sloan sighting. Would be interesting to see him and G. Hill together sometime.

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola with back to back baskets to end the 3rd Q and #Pacers now down 75-64, bc every NBA team should make a run.

Candace Buckner

Donald Sloan looks like he may get some run tonight. Might as well throw Lavoy Allen out there and play the entire 13-man roster.

Mark Montieth

Improvement that George Hill brings to the backcourt is dramatic. But too many holes elsewhere so far.

Candace Buckner

I think in honor of Miami's own, Bobby Ramos, I've got to turn in a "lackluster" in one of my post-game questions tonight.

Candace Buckner

Vogel calls timeout after Luol Deng cuts to the basket and scored another bunny at the rim. #Heat have 3 layups this quarter, lead 71-53

Candace Buckner

Btw, C.J. Miles becomes the 3rd #Pacer this year to be diagnosed with a strained or sore groin. #TheMoreYouKnow

Candace Buckner

#Pacers had just three field goals in the paint during that 2nd Q, but then again, they made only six total.

Greg Rappaport

IND trailing the Heat 54-37 at the half. Despite 14 first-half turnovers, the return of George Hill has been a huge positive. 2-of-4, 6 pts.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have ruled out C.J. Miles (strained left groin) for the rest of the game.

Candace Buckner

Frank Vogel complained to the nearest ref for an offensive foul committed on G. Hill. Salvatore, on the baseline, eventually called it.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have 11 points so far this 2nd Q. I don't care what they say afterwards… this is a sign of not trying.

Candace Buckner

At this point, if the #Pacers can get out of this game w/ only one player with an injury, they should be given half a win.

Greg Rappaport

HOW was that not a foul on Wade? He actually dragged George Hill out of the lane. It looked like an intentional foul.

Mark Montieth

With 4:33 to go in the half, Pacers finally have a good defensive possession.

Candace Buckner

Earlier, Frank Vogel had yelled and clapped his hands at ref Bennett Salvatore. This time, anger Scola was called for that shove on Andersen

Candace Buckner

Technical foul on Frank Vogel for arguing offensive call on Luis Scola

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert's outlet pass to Chris Copeland was the equivalent to a 'meh.'

Mark Montieth

We're five minutes in and the Pacers haven't missed a shot in the second quarter. Which is only one way of looking at it.

Candace Buckner

Nearly 3 1/2 minutes have passed in this 2nd Q and the #Pacers have added just 2 points. Now trailing #Heat 37-20

Candace Buckner

Damjan Rudez now with three fouls in 6 minutes of play. So enter Chris Copeland.

Greg Rappaport

Mahinmi scaring everyone with that play. He looks OK though. Let's hope it's all good.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers down 33-20 to a MIA team that's been the worst scoring team in the league through the month of January.

Mark Montieth

I'm sure many Pacers fans are surprised Shawne Williams is still in the NBA. A good guy who needs to stay away from hometown influences.

Candace Buckner

Ian Mahinimi now up on his own but touched his knee but seems to be fine. Still, something to look out for

Candace Buckner

Mahinmi down and immediately grabbed at his knee

Candace Buckner

Players on the court look like as if they don't kno what the other guy's doing, but continue w/ play anyway bc that's what they've been told

Candace Buckner

#Pacers had six TOs in the 1st Q. It's beyond "sloppy" at this point.

Candace Buckner

The more things change, the more they say the same….

Mark Montieth

Scola with the finger roll. Those private workouts with George Gervin are finally paying off.

Candace Buckner

End of 1st Q: #Heat lead 26-18. This matches the largest 1st Q deficit for the #Pacers in last 8 games but lowest scoring total.

Greg Rappaport

Behind the back dime from George Hill to David West. #WelcomeBack

Mark Montieth

Pacers incredibly healthy last season, incredibly injury-burdened this season. Another way in which water finds its level.

Greg Rappaport

Two quick fouls on Rudez open up the possibility of Cope getting back into the fold tonight.

Candace Buckner

It's like someone had to sacrifice their sore left groin so that George Hill could return tonight. And CJ Miles pulled the short straw.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles has a sore left groin and is questionable to return. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

George Hill on the court. George Hill makes a basket.

Candace Buckner

Change with C.J. Miles to the starting lineup has helped C.J. Miles, he's 3-6. But hasn't helped the team. #Pacers not named Miles 1-8

Candace Buckner

Thankfully, Frank Vogel calls timeout before we can get another sequence of three turnovers in 10 seconds.

Greg Rappaport

Napier and Wade make for a pretty hounding defensive back court.

Greg Rappaport

Annnnd there is your D-wade circus shot Du Jour

Mark Montieth

Always been a fan of how Heat execute their offense. Always attacking the basket.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert has to sit with two fouls at the 7:34 mark. #Pacers a little turnover happy already

Greg Rappaport

wow. Miles with an excellent start to the game scoring Indiana's first 6 points.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles with the first bucket for the #Pacers. Miles in place of Stuckey tonight, I mistakenly said "same starters" in an earlier tweet

Greg Rappaport

Lol Philly up 15-0 on Toronto.

Greg Rappaport

No, I do not want to make Internet Explorer my default browser. Now please stop asking.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers play ORL next and Nikola Vucevic is the real deal. Check out @Baxter Holmes' piece on his "2nd birthday" es.pn/14ZlZxa

Greg Rappaport

Vogel not a fan of the bench scoring statistic, but Pacers are 0-10 when opponents bench outscores Indiana's.

Candace Buckner

#Heat starters: Chalmers, Wade, Deng, Andersen and Bosh. Hassan Whiteside is active but not starting.

Candace Buckner

Same starters for the #Pacers and with George Hill back on the active list, rookie Shayne Whittington becomes inactive.

Candace Buckner

#Heat starters listed as questionable before the game, Hassan Whiteside and Luol Deng are also "planning on playing."

Candace Buckner

#Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on Dwyane Wade, who missed shoot around w/ an illness… "Dwyane is here & planning on playing" vs #Pacers

Greg Rappaport

Over the last 6 games, the Miami Heat have the NBA's third lowest DefRtg, per Nba.com/stats

#Colts Grigson: O-line obviously a key area but has to be built. If find right mix and stay healthy with durable guys.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Grigson on Chudzinski: It's my job to make sure good people stay in this building and don't just walk right out.

#Heat update: Dwyane Wade (illness) did not shootaround.

Candace Buckner

Frank Vogel: "If (Hill) plays, we're probably going to play him off the bench bc of a minutes restriction." Hill expected to play 15-20 mins

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Grigson on free agency: Can do homework but really don't know a guy. It's more a roll of dice than draft.

Candace Buckner

George Hill is expected to play tonight vs #Heat, will come off the bench.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Grigson on Richardson: He was suspended for two games for personal reasons.

Pacers news: George Hill has been upgraded from questionable to probable and is likely to play tonight against the Heat.

The #Pacers game April 14 against Washington is still slated to air on TNT. For now, at least.
