Stat of the night (or season)… RT @John Schuhmann: Final season-long point differential... Nets: -236 Pacers: +23

Conrad Brunner

Nothing like sharing a game night with #Pacers fans on Twitter. You guys are the best.

Conrad Brunner

Neither expected to exercise his option. Would leave too much money on table. twitter.com/jeddylee_14/st…

Conrad Brunner

At least none of the #Pacemates has purple hair. #irrationalizing

Scott Agness

Finishing 9th, just on the outside of the playoffs, is worst-case scenario. Bright side: Finished 10th in 2010, drafted Paul George.

Scott Agness

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.

Candace Buckner

It all comes to an end in Memphis. #Pacers lose 95-83 to the Grizzlies, ending their playoff hopes. BKN advances as 8th seed

Greg Rappaport

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

Conrad Brunner

Both have player options. Neither expected to exercise. twitter.com/emacinfishers/…

Candace Buckner

#Pacers not emptying bench yet, but Rudež coming in for Hibbert

Conrad Brunner

Win 1 of those last 4 games against #Nets and #Celtics, and Damo and Whittington start for #Pacers tonight. That's when season really lost.

Conrad Brunner

2 chances for #Pacers to make it a 2-possession game: 1) Couldn't get a D reb; 2) GHill throws it away.

Candace Buckner

Jeff Green's layup just may be the last nail in the #Pacers' season. #Grizzlies up 89-79 and he's going to the FT line w/ 2:19 remaining.

Conrad Brunner

... absolutely nobody can get a rebound when they need one.

Conrad Brunner

Meanwhile, back on the court ...

Scott Agness

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

Conrad Brunner

When was the last time a guy had to be carried off the court, and to locker room, with a sore calf? @SprtsInjryAlert

Mark Montieth

Sore left calf for Paul George. Return questionable. (I'd say doubtful.) Still, good news in the grander scheme. Compensation, most likely.

Conrad Brunner

Sorry, trainers appear to be working on L leg of PG.

Candace Buckner

Per #Pacers, Paul George has a sore left calf. Questionable for return.

Scott Agness

Looks like asst. trainer Carl Eaton was evaluating Paul George's left* leg, not the one he fractured this summer.

Mark Montieth

Oh, my. Paul George carried to the bench.

Scott Agness

Paul George having to be carried to the end of the bench. The night gets even worse...

Conrad Brunner

Uh-oh. PG needs to be helped off court with 10:37 left, no weight on right leg.

Candace Buckner

Paul George is carried to the bench by Donald Sloan and David West.

Conrad Brunner

Gasol/Randolph=42 pts, 19 rbs Hibbert/West=9 pts, 7 rbs #optout

Scott Agness

Welp, Pacers down 12 with 12 minutes to play. G-Hill and CJ Miles shouldering the load.

Candace Buckner

End of 3rd Q: #Grizzlies ahead 73-61. The Gasol-Randolph front court has combined for 42 points.

Greg Rappaport

Marc Gasol has been a menace.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers trying to pressure the ball (led by Paul George's gambles) and it leads to a Gasol mismatch on G. Hill. It ends as a 3pt play

Michael Pointer

Did Jordan Morris look more than a little nervous in that post-game interview? Dude was shaking.

Mark Montieth

Paul George just doesn't have it tonight. Plays like that show the rust.

Candace Buckner

Nice sequence here with PG laying out for a steal (but missed) and ending with a G. Hill 3 pointer. #Pacers down 67-60

Conrad Brunner

Watching him land on L foot on every shot, as well as cheating on defensive stances, @Paul George playing very one-legged tonight.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have gotten a few stops in a row, but not enough. While not capitalizing with a run, Randolph backs down Mahinmi & MEM goes up 12

Conrad Brunner

One #Pacers player - @masfresco - has played winning basketball tonight. Everyone else, dreck.

Candace Buckner

5:16 remaining in the 3rd Q, #Grizzlies leading 65-53. MEM shooting 48.1%. Gasol (24 points and 10 rebs) Z-Bo (10 & 6)

Candace Buckner

MEM frontcourt is just too much for Hibbert and West. Not their fault, but #Pacers can't do anything to stop this

Greg Rappaport

CJ Miles is goin all in tonight

Scott Agness

Roy’s got to quit arguing and just play. Control what you can control.

Mark Montieth

Might be worth Vogel taking a technical foul if this keeps up.

Candace Buckner

Again, mas C.J. Pacers need mas C.J.

Candace Buckner

Now #Pacers fishing for calls, it's not a good mentality here. Bout to get too caught up on the whistle instead of simply playing

Candace Buckner

Common foul on Marc Gasol, just two shots

Candace Buckner

Refs will review Marc Gasol's foul on Hibbert to see if it's flagrant.

Mark Montieth

Just no matchup for Gasol. But I still think West is the best one. Despite that last foul.

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill wasn't even looking at the rim when he threw that shot up

Candace Buckner

Alright, same starters here at the 2nd quarter. Vogel's not expanding his rotation. Season could end in 24 minutes of game action.

Scott Agness

“Must-win” is so overused. … but that is now the situation for the #Pacers. (Just 1 more win during the yr & they wouldn’t be in this spot.)

Scott Agness

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.

Scott Agness

Congrats to Indy’s own @Eric Gordon of the Pelicans, now seven years in and will finally get to experience the #NBAPlayoffs.

Candace Buckner

Halftime: #Pacers trail 54-41. Indy made just seven shots through the 2nd half but gave up 12 to Memphis.

Candace Buckner

…but when Jordan Adams is making shots like that?!! Welp.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles may have to go for 40 tonight

Conrad Brunner

Someone just tweeted suggesting Hibbert has been on the bench too long, bringing the season total of that ledger to ... one.

Scott Agness

Pacers call timeout, must regroup before intermission as Grizzlies’ lead balloons to 13 via 18-2 run.

Candace Buckner

Jordan Adams waiting under the rim, receives nice pass from Nick Calathes and #Grizzlies go up 46-33 with 3:12 remaining in the half

Michael Pointer

Do these instant grass soccer fields ever work? Remember the game here in Indy at LOS two summers ago?

Conrad Brunner

Hou W, SA L means Mem can get homecourt advantage with W. Coupled with NJ W, a perfect storm of circumstance against #Pacers.

Candace Buckner

Largest lead for the Grizzles, 39-31

Scott Agness

Brooklyn beats Orlando, meaning Indiana MUST win to advance to the playoffs. Lose — and they’re done.

Conrad Brunner

Hope @John Denton understands the amount of collective sleep his team cost #Pacers fans tonight by gagging in the fourth quarter.

Candace Buckner

Vogeldamus never lied: "Orlando is not going to win tonight." RT @InsideHoops: #Nets about to beat the #Magic

Mark Montieth

No doubt about it now. Nets going to win, so Pacers have to win to make playoffs.

Candace Buckner

You probably missed it, but when Rodney Stuckey stole the ball back, Vogel slightly pumped his right fist. #Pacers need these breaks

Michael Pointer

College soccer in the U.S. looking pretty good on that Jordan Morris goal. Well done.

Mark Montieth

Stuckey needs to play point tonight. Sloan just not healthy enough with that toe.

Candace Buckner

Marc Gasol hasn't rested and he's harming the #Pacers: 15 minutes, 15 points.

Conrad Brunner

Turf toe really hampering Sloan's movement. And movement is kind of his thing. That, and over-dribbling. twitter.com/TimDonahue8p9s…

Candace Buckner

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

Scott Agness

Remember Bogdanovic? He has 25 points and his last jumper put the Nets up by nine on Orlando with 4mins left.

Candace Buckner

Paul George misses the layup, but gets the tip-in. Again, I like the second-effort lift by the kid

Conrad Brunner

#Nets starting to build a cushion, up 91-82 under 5 minutes.

Candace Buckner

Gasol has 9 points and 5 rebounds and played the entire 1st Q

Candace Buckner

Now, let's share some context: All-Star starter Marc Gasol has a nagging ankle issue and #Grizzlies w/o two key players (Conley & Allen) yet

Candace Buckner

End of 1st Q: #Pacers lead 24-22, still ahead after a poor stretch to end the quarter. C.J. Miles leads all with 10 points

Conrad Brunner

ICYMI: #Pacers not quite ready for this long, strange trip to end. bit.ly/1D1gJTF

Candace Buckner

Too cute. Plus that pass was telegraphed

Conrad Brunner

When it comes to David West, probable means as soon as humanly possible. twitter.com/CandaceDBuckne…

Candace Buckner

That 25.7% shooting against the #Wiz in the 1st Q? … That was yesterday. #Pacers moving along at 58.8% (10 of 17 makes)

Mark Montieth

Mahinmi not only got that tip, he made George Hill's rebound possible at the defensive end to set it up. Kept it alive.

Candace Buckner

Ian Mahinmi with the tip in after George Hill's miss. #Pacers performing like a team that deserves a playoff berth. Lead 23-15 w/ 3:01 left

Candace Buckner

Per #Pacers, David West has a sprained left ankle and will be re-tapped. Probable for a return

Scott Agness

Brooklyn and Orlando knotted at 75 as the fourth quarter begins.

Scott Agness

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.

Mark Montieth

Magic and Nets tied after three quarters.

Conrad Brunner

Quick reminder, for 2nd-screen team and individual stats and play-by-play, cbeck out our @1070thefan gamecast. bit.ly/1IMvwcM

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola will replace David West after this time-out

Candace Buckner

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

Mark Montieth

West rolls ankle ... non-contact.

Candace Buckner

David West seems to have hurt his left foot/ankle

Mark Montieth

George Hill recreates that game-winning shot in Charlotte to give Pacers 12-9 lead.

Scott Agness

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.

Candace Buckner

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

Mark Montieth

Courtney Lee ... yet another Pike guy who can shoot. It's in our blood.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles, your new #Pacers dunk leader of the season with 31
