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
Banked free throws are often omens.
Gotta appreciate Quinn disagreeing with call that favors Pacers. Objectivity, baby.
We've seen this before. Pacers don't quit, make impressive comeback. Raising the question: can they finish?
Looks like George Hill's going to be right at 20 minutes tonight.
The Pacers are within five. As you predicted an hour ago.
Ian Mahinmi turnaround hook shot (i know, right!) to slice the lead to 77-72 with 7:20 remaining in the game.
Crazy quick crossover for Donald Sloan but couldn't finish at the rim. Next time down, Scola misses midrange J. Offense looking better but..
Haslem is the all-time greatest player named Udonis. I think.
Donald Sloan sighting. Would be interesting to see him and G. Hill together sometime.
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.
Improvement that George Hill brings to the backcourt is dramatic. But too many holes elsewhere so far.
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.
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.
Frank Vogel complained to the nearest ref for an offensive foul committed on G. Hill. Salvatore, on the baseline, eventually called it.
HOW was that not a foul on Wade? He actually dragged George Hill out of the lane. It looked like an intentional foul.
With 4:33 to go in the half, Pacers finally have a good defensive possession.
Earlier, Frank Vogel had yelled and clapped his hands at ref Bennett Salvatore. This time, anger Scola was called for that shove on Andersen
Technical foul on Frank Vogel for arguing offensive call on Luis Scola
Roy Hibbert's outlet pass to Chris Copeland was the equivalent to a 'meh.'
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.
We got a Cope sighting.
Damjan Rudez now with three fouls in 6 minutes of play. So enter Chris Copeland.
These passes, yo.
Mahinmi scaring everyone with that play. He looks OK though. Let's hope it's all good.
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.
Ian Mahinimi now up on his own but touched his knee but seems to be fine. Still, something to look out for
Mahinmi down and immediately grabbed at his knee
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
The more things change, the more they say the same….
Scola with the finger roll. Those private workouts with George Gervin are finally paying off.
Pacers incredibly healthy last season, incredibly injury-burdened this season. Another way in which water finds its level.
Two quick fouls on Rudez open up the possibility of Cope getting back into the fold tonight.
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.
George Hill on the court. George Hill makes a basket.
Thankfully, Frank Vogel calls timeout before we can get another sequence of three turnovers in 10 seconds.
Napier and Wade make for a pretty hounding defensive back court.
Annnnd there is your D-wade circus shot Du Jour
Always been a fan of how Heat execute their offense. Always attacking the basket.
wow. Miles with an excellent start to the game scoring Indiana's first 6 points.
Lol Philly up 15-0 on Toronto.
No, I do not want to make Internet Explorer my default browser. Now please stop asking.
Vogel not a fan of the bench scoring statistic, but Pacers are 0-10 when opponents bench outscores Indiana's.
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
Pacers news: George Hill has been upgraded from questionable to probable and is likely to play tonight against the Heat.
