#Butler 26, Tennessee 22, 3:54 left in first half. Bulldogs picking it up on defensive end, although Tennessee did miss a wide open layin.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts don't have to worry about Diamont at QB, but still should keep an eye on that RB Coleman.

Michael Pointer

Both teams shooting 50 percent: #Butler is 9-for-18, Tennessee is 8-for-16.

Michael Pointer

And second, Chrabascz dives to save a loose ball, #Butler shows great patience, and Martin hits contested jumper as shot clock runs down.

Michael Pointer

Fist, Dunham made a really nice move into the lane and hit a jumper off the bounce. Tough to guard that.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 23, Tennessee 19, 7:14 left in half. Two great possessions for Bulldogs going into this media timeout.

Michael Pointer

Dunham was out for about two minutes. Think he's to play a lot today.

Michael Pointer

Dunham on the bench getting a breather. Interesting time for #Butler without its best shooter again this zone.

Michael Pointer

Tennessee fans not happy with that call. Thought Wideman was over the back after being blocked out. #Butler

Michael Pointer

For those of you that asked, #Butler game is on Indy radio at 93.1 FM. Bumped from 1070 due to the Colts game.

Michael Pointer

#Butler is 3-for-4 from 3-point range. Kind of obvious, but a huge stat against the Tennessee zone.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 17, Tennessee 12, 11:21 left in half. Kelan Martin is instant offense again. Steps off the bench and hits a 3.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 14, Tennessee 12. Bulldogs have played well offensively, but had to call time when Barlow caught in double-team trap near midcourt.

Conrad Brunner

Based on Savage's performance thus far, only way #Colts lose this game is if they beat themselves.

Michael Pointer

Etherington, Wideman in with 13 minutes left in half. No sign of Kelan Martin yet. Now he gets off the bench. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Tennessee 8, #Butler 8, 15 minutes left. Dunham with a pair of 3s over the zone, but Tennessee 3-for-6 in early going.

Michael Pointer

If you're looking for the game, I've been told it is on ESPNews due to NCAA soccer running long. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Holtmann not happy with that call on Jones. Thought he had good defensive position. #Butler

Conrad Brunner

So, if #Texans QB can't even complete a handoff, looks like #Colts just need to kick a field goal and kneel down the rest of the afternoon.

Michael Pointer

Thompson-Boling Arena is huge. Probably too big. Decent crowd, but lot of empty seaons. #Butler

Michael Pointer

The legendary Jim Burr among today's officials. Seriously, I think he's been doing games since I was 9 or 10 years old. #Butler

Conrad Brunner

With Fitzpatrick carted off (leg), Tom Savage checks in for #Texans. No doubt, J.J. Watt is next in line.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts O-line has held up relatively well in pass protection. Some internal caving but generally a manageable pocket.

Conrad Brunner

That's Luck's fifth first quarter turnover in the last four games for #Colts.

#Butler hopes its trip to Tennessee is better than #Purdue's. Boilers lost last night at Vanderbilt. indy.st/1AvC8ol via @indystar

Michael Pointer

Normal starting five for #Butler: Barlow, Dunham, Jones, Chrabascz, Woods.

Conrad Brunner

Has J.J. Watt reached Bieber-esque overkill status in terms of #NFL and network hype?

Conrad Brunner

This week and last week 1st two times all season #Colts have had 4 inactive OL. Almost bit them against #Browns.

Michael Pointer

Tyndall had some NCAA issues at Morehead State and is no under investigation for alleged violations while at Southern Miss. Interesting.

Michael Pointer

Think there's been some turmoil around #Butler? There's talk in Knoxville that first-year coach Donnie Tyndall will be one-and-done.

Michael Pointer

Got to see a game here someday. Talk about an impressive place, even when empty. http://t.co/T9oH1XABmK

Indy friends: Drove down #peytonmanning Way today. But no street sign to signify it, at least that I could find. #butler

Michael Pointer

Per the Knoxville paper, Tennessee is play three top 15 teams in first seven games for first time since 1992-93. Lost to VCU, Kansas.

Greg Rappaport

Sometimes I just look at the Western Conference standings with a straight up slack jaw.

Conrad Brunner

TY, JJ central to IND-HOU matchup that promises to be acronymious. #Colts #Texans ow.ly/FRIE8 http://t.co/zFNYndx8WP

Conrad Brunner

4 OL inactive (Thornton, Reitz, Shipley, McDonald), means 7 active (Nixon, Holmes only backups). Jack Doyle ready, just in case for #Colts.

Michael Pointer

Not surprisingly, a classy farewell from Doug Zaleski. Had a great run in Muncie. Always helpful. tspne.ws/1xO5trq via @TheStarPress

Michael Pointer

I was asked on a Knoxville radio station for a prediction. I said #Butler 75, Tennessee 70. Would be a great road win for Bulldogs.

From the Blazers locker room, Robin Lopez said he's excited to get home to see his cat, whose name is Prince Edward.

Greg Rappaport

Watson burnin up the net tonight. game-high 23 with 3 to play.

Candace Buckner

Pride showing up at the end but the #Pacers can't have their best extended stretch of play this late in a blowout.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Watson corner 3 and #Pacers down 84-76

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert showing a lot of emotion after creating a jump ball against Aldridge. Signs of life here

Greg Rappaport

West checks back into the game, Pacers need that edge for the final 5 min.

Candace Buckner

#Blazers maintain 84-71 lead with 6:39 remaining. C.J. Watson leads #Pacers with 18 points

Greg Rappaport

Pacers gettin' close to needing to play mistake-free hoops here down the stretch. Trailing by 13

Greg Rappaport

Pacers D hounding Blazers right now. Tough to ruffle the feathers of Dame Thrillard, however.

Greg Rappaport

Blazers need a T.O. after a nifty shot-clock-beating layup by Sloan. It's a 12-0 Pacers run.

Candace Buckner

Donald Sloan with a drive to the rim. #Pacers on a 12-0 run and trail 82-71

Greg Rappaport

Stuckey ties his career-high for rebounds with 11. #RecordBooks

Greg Rappaport

The and-1 by Scola brings the Pacers to a 13-point deficit.

Candace Buckner

I'm slacking. But next time he comes talk to scorer's table, take a drink RT @MRat731: Do you have an official Joey Bingo card?

Greg Rappaport

Wow, West with a beaut of an inbounds pass to Watson, but the shot falls short. 82-66 POR leading.

Greg Rappaport

Solo helps force the turnover from Aldridge. Crowd still in it here at BLF

Candace Buckner

All that's missing is an overly dramatic technical call and we'll have a complete Joey Night.

Candace Buckner

Joey still stuntin'… takes the ball out of the free throw shooters hands bc he wanted to make sure scorer's table knows it's a 3-shot foul.

Greg Rappaport

Watson gets fouled while shooting a 3. He's having a great night, 15 pts & counting.

Candace Buckner

C.J. Watson earned that foul

Candace Buckner

Joey Moment. Frank Vogel jumps on Steven Anderson for blown call, Crawford trails and takes over: "Hey Frank! That's my call!"

Candace Buckner

Nope. That's the look of "I'm too old for this ----." RT @Indyvnzla81: @Candace Buckner that is the look when you get to meet Father Time

Candace Buckner

Watching David West's face as he heads back to the sideline, he looks like the Danny Glover of Lethal Weapon on this #Pacers team.

Candace Buckner

Stuckey fastbreak and layup that gets cleaned off the boards but it's goal tending. Even better - he got back up after falling into cameras

Candace Buckner

Robin Lopez looking more like Brook tonight with some of these moves he's schooling Hibbert with.

Candace Buckner

Damian Lillard could care less about your rim protector, too.

Candace Buckner

#Blazers have started the quarter 4 for 8. #Pacers have missed 4 shots out of 5 attempts. Lead is 67-40.

Candace Buckner

#Blazers getting to the rim right now like they own the place -- and really, they have. 32 points in the paint so far.

Greg Rappaport

Stuckey has 9 points and 8 boards. Pretty close a doub-doub in the first half alone.

Michael Pointer

Wrote about freshman Kelan Martin and tried to figure out why he's off to such a good start at #Butler.indy.st/1DtpRXj via @indystar

Greg Rappaport

Amen RT @Mark Montieth: Thank goodness for the Frisbee dog.

Mark Montieth

Thank goodness for the Frisbee dog.

Candace Buckner

Also, this #Blazers 36-point second quarter is the most the #Pacers have allowed to an opponent.

Greg Rappaport

Dog http://t.co/QFThWhgoZK

Candace Buckner

This 20-point lead at halftime is bad news for the #Pacers: team is 4-13 when trailing at the half. #sadstats

Greg Rappaport

on the bright side, DANCING DOGS as the halftime show. My personal fav.

Greg Rappaport

Blazers leading big at the half, 58-38. After a great start to the game, Indiana's offense seems to have cooled. The enigma continues.

Candace Buckner

Another layup for Lillard and halftime mercifully comes in Indianapolis. #Blazers up 58-38 after outscoring #Pacers 36-15 in 2nd Q

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill doubled and throws ball that Portland easily grabs. Turnover and FTs for Lillard. #Blazers 54-36

Candace Buckner

David West sold that offensive foul on LaMarcus Aldridge. Only 5 turnovers for the #Blazers now

Greg Rappaport

Pacers trailing by 16 ATM. Need to finish the half with a strong punch to get back into this one for the second half.

Greg Rappaport

Vogel pretty upset after the loose ball foul goes uncalled against Lillard. A West foul stops play and it's back to coach's drawing board.

Greg Rappaport

Lillard just had a pretty smoove up-and-under against Hibbert. Not much you can do to stop that.

Candace Buckner

All of those good feeds to Roy from the first Q, isn't happening now. Doesn't help that he's not getting good position here. Less active

Greg Rappaport

Hill's layup goes in with a lil hlep from a Scola tip-in.

Greg Rappaport

All five starters with the exception of West are back in the game for Indiana.

Candace Buckner

PDX's second unit looking really good with 20 points so far
