Lance now in front of the Pacers’ bench hugging with all of his former teammates, coaches.

Candace Buckner

S. Hill definitely beat the buzzer. Henderson had checked in for defense but completely lost him on the baseline.

Scott Agness

Stuckey, driving on Lance, misses but Solomon Hill’s putback beats the clock. Pacers beat the Hornets, 88-86.

Candace Buckner

Stuckey air alls the jumper but Solomon Hill there for the offensive rebound and layup. Game winner, it appears

Candace Buckner

Stuckey with the ball near half court, Lance on him.

Candace Buckner

18.0 for the #Pacers in a tied game. Ball goes to?????

Conrad Brunner

Absolutely horrible possession by Kemba Walker: dribble, dribble, dribble, lose dribble, regain dribble, oh crap, give it up for airball.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers with 44 pts, 33 rbs from bigs Hibbert/Scola/Mahinmi/Allen.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers doing a good job doubling Jefferson on the block now

Scott Agness

Pacers and Hornets knotted at 86 with 80 seconds left...

Candace Buckner

Real quick turn for Scola to attack a sagging Jefferson. Turns into a 3-point play and game tied at 86-86

Candace Buckner

Stuckey in for the final 2:50 along with Sloan, Hill, Hibbert and Scola

Candace Buckner

#Hornets up 83-81 with 2:50 remaining. Jefferson up to 28 points. Nice offensive night for Roy, but hasn't stopped his assignment.

Candace Buckner

Vogel yells: "thumb down, five" Lance calls out: pick and roll Roy!"

Candace Buckner

Not a clear path foul. Just a common one. #Hornets ball

Candace Buckner

David's brother. Shucks. RT @APEntertainment: Motown singer Jimmy Ruffin dies at age 78 apne.ws/1F15j3V

Scott Agness

Roy Hibbert 7-of-12 from the field, 18 points and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers 77-75 with 6:01 remaining in the game. Starting front court about to check back after the timeout with Scola and Hibbert

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers winning some reunion battles last few mins, Price on Kemba (UConn), Stuckey on Maxiell (the evil Pistons).

Candace Buckner

Ian Mahinmi having a nice night under the glass, too. His offensive rebounds on one possession led to a Stuckey jumper. Ian has 6 boards

Scott Agness

Zeller beats Mahinmi down the floor, lays it in as he was fouled. Impressive touch for how fast he was moving … ended 9 rows behind the goal

Candace Buckner

Cody Zeller ran up about 8 steps after making the layup through a foul.

Conrad Brunner

Jefferson has 16 in 3Q, but #Pacers close to 66-65 as Hibbert/Scola combine for 15. Lance-o-meter at 8-6-5.

Candace Buckner

End of 3rd Q: #Hornets 66-65. Scola up to 12 points but Jefferson now has 24

Scott Agness

Once down by as many as 15, Pacers +5 in the 3rd and are within one, 66-65. Scola with 8 of his 12pts in the period.

Candace Buckner

A.J. Price pumps his fist in front of scorer's table after that Stuckey layup. #Pacers 63-61

Candace Buckner

Scola's working on a nice quarter here. His offensive rebound and putback ties the game at 59-59

Candace Buckner

Strong move by Stuckey to drive and elbow Zeller out of the way. Refs see it Stuckey's way and call a foul on Cody. And one.

Candace Buckner

We have reached the point in our program when the #Hornets run everything through Al Jefferson. And it works.

Candace Buckner

And it doesn't even fit. Check the collar. RT @UncleHemp: Ummm… vine.co/v/M02VXpEKEzt http://t.co/ACOWtZzB8S

Candace Buckner

#Pacers down 55-49 with 6:34 remaining in the 3rd Q. Their ball after this timeout.

Candace Buckner

Copeland with a travel, his first turnover of the game but the #Pacers' 10th

Candace Buckner

Vogel yelled "Shot!" twice while Copeland had the ball in his hands with the clock winding down from 3 seconds. Shot clock violation.

Candace Buckner

…and they do. Scola layup. #Hornets up 51-49

Candace Buckner

Lot of roaming on that possession by Kemba Walker but CHA ends up with a shot clock violation. #Pacers can pull within 2 on next stop

Candace Buckner

Roy's knocking down his mid range looks today. Now tied with Jefferson for game-high 16 points.

Mark Montieth

Better to be down 6 at the half than up 6, most games. You come out more aggressively. If I was a coach, I'd work toward deficits. Ha!

Scott Agness

Lance Stephenson wasn’t sure what kind of reception he’d receive. Well, it was a mix of cheers and boos. VIDEO: bit.ly/14O6iti

Candace Buckner

At halftime: #Hornets 49-43. Roy Hibbert has 14 points. Al Jefferson with 16 and Lance Stephenson with 6 on 3 of 8 shooting

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers trail #Hornets 49-43 at half. Lance-o-meter at 6-4-4.

Candace Buckner

Sloan goes wrap around on his way to a potential buzzer beating layup. Misses it but gets fouled and makes both FTs

Candace Buckner

Lance doing too much in iso created a bad turnover for the #Hornets. Then #Pacers turn it right over with a bad entry pass

Conrad Brunner

So now that the #Hornets name is back in Charlotte, can #NBA get the #Jazz back in New Orleans? Not sure what that leaves Utah with, tho.

Candace Buckner

Damjan Rudez with the #Pacers first 3 of the night… ends an 0 for 8 start

Scott Agness

Nice battle going on between Al Jefferson and Roy Hibbert. Jefferson has 16pts, Hibbert w/ 12 & 5 …as his agent David Falk watches courtside

Candace Buckner

Real quick move by Roy Hibbert to get to the hole, doesn't make the reverse layup but at least draws 2nd foul on Al Jefferson

Candace Buckner

This is one of the more perplexing deficits by the #Pacers. CHA has not operated smoothly in its offense this yr, yet up 38-25

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets +17 in Zeller's first 11-minute rotation. So that's what Clifford meant about learning how to make his teammates better.

Candace Buckner

Double Ts on Stuckey and Biyombo. #Pacers ball down 34-24

Candace Buckner

Ian Mahinmi's slow to get up after collision but tells #Pacers trainier he's alright. Stuckey and Biyombo get into as well.

Conrad Brunner

As Mahinmi airballs a FT, I have to wonder if the roof is open here at the Bank. Or maybe the window.

Conrad Brunner

Lance tries okie-doke on Damo, spins and throws up airball from 8 feet.

Candace Buckner

Biyombo catches an alley oop then cleans up a miss w an offensive reb throw down. Good start for a guy Clifford called out earlier this yr

Mark Montieth

Fans tried to engage Lance in conversation by Hornets bench. He said nothing, smiled at one comment.

Chris Singleton

The way you talk, YOUUUU got ittt

Conrad Brunner

After 12-4 start by #Pacers, #Hornets provide 24-8 finish to take 28-20 lead after one. Lance-ometer at 4.

Mark Montieth

Lance still stands at the bench. Should have gone down by Bird, maybe?

Candace Buckner

#Pacers close the final 4:41 of the quarter with one field goal and they're down 28-20 to the #Hornets.

Candace Buckner

First time with A.J. Price and Rodney Stuckey on the floor together

Candace Buckner

After Walker baseline jumper, #Pacers coach Frank Vogel calls time-out. #Hornets have taken over the lead 22-18

Candace Buckner

Bad possession from start to finish on that last one

Candace Buckner

With Walker, Roberts on the court, you'd want the #Pacers to take advantage of these smallish #Hornets guards -- esp Stuckey

Mark Montieth

Looking forward to Stuckey - Stephenson match-up. Similar athletes.

Candace Buckner

Lance series of events: a stepback, a block on Roy, then a PUJIT. Afterwards, no scowl, but he's fired up for sure after the booing

Mark Montieth

And as soon as I say that... Lance scores twice.

Candace Buckner

Mad Lance is in the building, y'all.

Scott Agness

After Lance picked up a foul, @PacersG2 mocked him by chanting, "He's not ready."

Mark Montieth

Seems the Hornets are going to go at Hibbert all night. No wonder Lance isn't scoring as much.

Candace Buckner

G2 Zone, after Lance Stephenson picks up first foul, chants: "HE'S NOT READY!"

Conrad Brunner

More cheers than boos for #Pacemates, so we know they're way more popular with tonight's #Pacers crowd than Lance or Cody. But it's early.

Candace Buckner

5:58 to go in 1st Q, #Pacers off to a 12-8 start. Only one significant touch for Lance Stephenson so far, and it was a turnover.

Candace Buckner

Zeller about to check in for Marvin Williams. And HE GETS SOME BOOS! Ok. Why?

Candace Buckner

Hibbert knocks down another 15 footer and turns back making one of those "Ooooo" faces. Big Dawg's feeling himself with 7 points

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola wight he make over Marvin Williams and a foul. #Pacers up 10-4 with 8:18 to go in 1st Q

Scott Agness

Majority of boos coming from @PacersArea55, @PacersG2, the team's two official fan sections. Booing Lance every time he has the ball.

Candace Buckner

Early foul on Al Jefferson, sending Hibbert to the line. #Pacers got to know to go right back to Roy now

Candace Buckner

To me, it seems that the fans who cheered went out of their way to block out the boos.

Conrad Brunner

If others say 50/50, I'll go with that. From where I was sitting, the boos drowned the cheers.

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson introduced as a #Hornets starter @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse instagram.com/p/vmdFihgcwn/

VIDEO: Mix of cheers and boos for Lance Stephenson during intros. instagram.com/p/vmdBJnl5Wv/

Conrad Brunner

More boos than cheers for Lance. Hmmm.

Conrad Brunner

ICYMI: We should never forget The Brawl, but current #Pacers can barely remember it. bit.ly/1uQkyLK

Scott Agness

Talked w/ Ian Mahinmi about what Lance is facing. Said it was exhausting for him in San Antonio. Overthink it & have so many requests.

Conrad Brunner

Stuckey returns for #Pacers tonight. Will come off the bench until conditioning catches up. Solo draws the matchup on Lance.

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets Clifford still very high on Vonleh's potential, "but he’s got to learn the NBA game and there’s no shortcut for that."

Mark Montieth

Super agent David Falk in the house tonight. Among his clients, Roy Hibbert.

Conrad Brunner

As for Lance, #Hornets Clifford said focus has been on "how to channel his competitiveness." Good times.

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets Clifford said Zeller has been one of the real bright spots for team so far. Shooting better, playing with more confidence.

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets Steve Clifford said Vonleh missed too much preseason/camp time with injury and "doesn't have grasp" of scheme to play regularly.

Conrad Brunner

Vogel on why Lance shouldn't be booed: "He put his heart and soul into this franchise for 4 years ... he should receive a warm welcome."

Scott Agness

As @DaveFurst noted, ref Ron Garretson, who officiated The Brawl 10 years ago today, was assigned tonight's #Pacers game. Coincidence?

Mark Montieth

Vogel on @StephnsonLance: "He poured his heart and soul into this franchise for four years and I think he should receive a warm welcome."

Candace Buckner

Zeller, entrenched in #Hornets rotation, has averaged 7.9 ppg and 5.4 rpg in his second season.

Candace Buckner

#Hornets coach Steve Clifford on Cody Zeller: "I think he's been, through 11 games, one of our real bright spots." #iubb

Candace Buckner

More Vogel: "...I think he poured his heart and soul into this franchise for four years and I think he should receive a warm welcome."

Candace Buckner

Vogel: "No, I don’t. Nor do I think he should. This is a business, everybody comes a free agent and has to make personal decisions…"

Candace Buckner

Vogel weighs in on if Lance will be booed tonight by #Pacers fans (and I agree w/ his main points here) ...

Scott Agness

Lance and Pacers assistant Popeye Jones catching up… @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse instagram.com/p/vmULJeF5RL/

Candace Buckner

Vogel on Stuckey: "It’s going to be a matter of not watching his injury but watching his wind. We feel like the injury’s behind him."

Candace Buckner

#Pacers coach Frank Vogel reiterated that Rodney Stuckey good to play long minutes tonight in his return from a sore foot.
