New Blog: Hibbert conundrum a big issue for Pacers bit.ly/QDtSBQ @Conrad Brunner

Scott Agness

Pacers failed to win a quarter in a 98-85 loss in Atlanta. “We weren’t dialed in,” Paul George said. REWIND: on.nba.com/1f8XXEH

Michael Pointer

I not only wouldn't start Hibbert on Saturday, I might even deactivate him for the game. It's becoming too much of a distraction. #Pacers

Michael Pointer

"We shouldn't be talking about that anymore," Scola when asked on Fox Sports Midwest on what it takes to bring more energy. #Pacers

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Scola: We shouldn't be talking about energy anymore. If you have to talk about it after next game, it's going to be summer vacation.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Scola: They hit big shots, they didn't panic and they closed the game better.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Scola: We got stops but weren't making shots so couldn't make a run.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Scola: They were able to control the tempo better than we did.

Michael Pointer

"He's our anchor. We won 56 games with him as our center. That's the simplest answer," Vogel on why he continues to start Hibbert. #Pacers

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel: Hibbert's our anchor. We won 56 games with him as our starter.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel: Was just trying to play the guys that were playing well. Got to play the guys that perform, even if out of position.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel: Early foul trouble messed with George's rhythm.

Michael Pointer

"We're not going to quit on him. We'll keep working with him and try to figure it out," Vogel on Hibert in his news conference. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

The only reviewable play: Officials are not reasonably certain whether a successful FG was scored correctly as a 2 point or 3.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel: We're not going to quit on (Hibbert), I know that. We'll keep trying to figure it out.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel (on Teague 3): He stepped out of bounds but only reviewable situation is if feet are inbounds on shot.

Michael Pointer

"We'll look at everything. . .But I have confidence in Roy Hibbert. I do have that." -- Vogel in his news conference. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

...at the moment they last touched the floor immediately prior to (or, if applicable, during) the release f the shot or the foul.

Candace Buckner

Citing Rule 13: II (f) (3): ...For purposes of this review, the official would look only at he position of the player’s feet...

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel: We'll look at everything. I have confidence in Hibbert.

Candace Buckner

Tony Brothers, one of the 3 refs at tonight's #Pacers-Hawks game, spoke to a pool reporter to explain why Teague's 3-pointer was allowed

Candace Buckner

Vogel said "probably" he'd start Roy Hibbert in Game 4

Scott Agness

Vogel said he’ll consider everything in terms of Roy. "He hasn’t played well in this series to this pt but I’ve got great confidence in him"

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson finishes with 21 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists. Good stuff from him, but #Pacers offense didn't click… 38.1 percent

Candace Buckner

Jeff Teague needed 20 shots to get there but finished with game-high 22 points and 10 assists. Paul Millsap, consistent as usual, 14 & 14

Candace Buckner

#Pacers hold #Hawks to 38.4 percent shooting for the game but give up 59 points in the second half.

Michael Pointer

Let's start chatting about the #Pacers folks. Here is the link: indystar.com/story/sports/n…

Conrad Brunner

#Hawks beat #Pacers 98-85 as DeMarre Carroll outscores Paul George 18-12. Indy's other All-Star? 4 pts, 2 rbs.

Candace Buckner

Final: #Hawks win 98-85 and go up 2-1 in the series. And as FoxSports South announcer says: "Who'da thunk it."

Scott Agness

Hawks go ahead 2-1 in the series with 98-85 Game 3 win in Atlanta. Glaring difference: Kyle Korver 20 points; GHill 1-for-10, 4pts.

Mark Montieth

Line drive shots rarely go down.

Candace Buckner

And Teague being out of bounds can't be overturned

Candace Buckner

Because not under 2 minutes, only reviewing the initial call of did the shot beat the clock. Which it did. But Teague stepped out

Candace Buckner

Wow, refs say that the basket was good. Looks like Teague clearly stepped out with his right foot

Candace Buckner

Should be 84-80 with 2:10 remaining because Teague's foot was out of bounds before the launch.

Candace Buckner

Teague was out of bounds, HUGE turn of events

Scott Agness

Teague clearly stepped out of bounds on his wild shot. Officials reviewing...

Candace Buckner

Now, refs reviewing if the basket was good

Candace Buckner

That Jeff Teague triple to the beat the shot clock … easily the play of the series

Mark Montieth

The shot that tells you that you're not supposed to win the game ...

Candace Buckner

And with the MJ shrug to boot!

Candace Buckner

Jeff Teague just shut this building down

Candace Buckner

That's the same play between DWest and GHill in Game 2, that bounce pass and cut… this time it works with Lance and West

Mark Montieth

In the attention deficit age, it's amazing how many players can't focus long enough to hit two consecutive foul shots. Wind up rushing one.

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson going to the line for two w/ 3:55 remaining. #Pacers down 9

Conrad Brunner

Doesn't Lance Louis play for the #Colts? Seems like he's done a pretty good job for #Pacers this quarter.

Candace Buckner

Actually, G. Hill twice bobbled passes in that sequence.

Candace Buckner

About three guys sank back into their seats on the #Pacers bench after G. Hill bobbled that pass. Another turnover leads to a Teague dunk

Scott Agness

Pero Antic with his first point of the game. Hawks have five guys with at least 11 each. Pacers down 7, 5:19.

Candace Buckner

With 6:27 remaining, #Pacers down 79-75. Big play by Watson to get rid of ball b4 travel. Bigger play by Lance to find Scola.

Scott Agness

Luis Scola with 12 of the Pacers’ 17 points in the 4th. Now back within four, with 6:27 left.

Conrad Brunner

Interesting how solid the interior defense has been for #Pacers without a so-called rim protector.

Candace Buckner

This #Pacers five-man unit looks the best so far

Scott Agness

I can count on my fingers how many times the Pacers have fouled a 3-point shooter this season. From a 4-pt game to 8.

Candace Buckner

Four-point plays are a sure way to kill momentum

Candace Buckner

…then get a stop, but Lance Stephenson can't control the bouncing ball off his foot. Out of bounds and back to #ATL

Candace Buckner

#Pacers trail 75-66 with 8:14 to go in the game. Lance, Scola and West are the three players carrying the entire offensive load

Mark Montieth

The lineup so many have been clamoring for: West and Scola and Watson all in the game.

Michael Pointer

Mark down the time 9:24: Vogel going real small with both Scola and West on the floor. Been waiting for this. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

After Scola has scored 6 points, PG dribbles out of a double team to launch a long 3 with 8 seconds on the shot clock. #PoorO

Michael Pointer

Chris Denari reports that team that has led by double-figures in all Hawks-#Pacers games in regular and postseason have gone on to win.

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola has six in this fourth quarter

Scott Agness

Really like the lineup the Pacers begin the 4th with: Watson, Hill, PG, Scola, Mahinmi. Now it’s about playing desperate...

Scott Agness

Lou Williams nails a 3-pointer, ATL’s sixth of the period, to take a 67-58 lead into the final stanza. Hawks +8 in the 3rd.

Candace Buckner

Louis Williams step back 3-pointer to give the #Hawks a 67-58 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Bad Q of defense for the #Pacers

Candace Buckner

Now down to a six-point deficit

Scott Agness

Note: David West’s jumper that counted at the end of 1st wasn’t reviewable for interference. Only in the final 2mins and in OT.

Candace Buckner

Didn't seem like much, but that move by Lou Williams completely lost Paul George

Scott Agness

They’re reviewing this? It was just a smart bump to keep Teague from a layup. #CarryOn

Scott Agness

Vogel calls timeout. Hawks, who’ve outscored the Pacers 20-11 in the 3Q, have all the momentum and energy. 59-49.

Candace Buckner

Teague fired up, so is this crowd (yes, it's true). After the breakaway dunk, #Hawks up 59-49 with 4:43 remaining

Michael Pointer

I hate to pile on Roy Hibbert. But you got to go with Mahinmi at this point, right?? #pacers

Scott Agness

Poor communication leads to the Hawks’ fourth triple of the half. They were 2-of-16 in the first two quarters. Hawks 56-47.

Candace Buckner

#Hawks hitting. #Pacers not. ATL up 53-45 right now

Candace Buckner

Again, #Pacers look like they're playing the "Activate Me Offense." … it's when players stand about and only move once the ball hits em

Scott Agness

Hawks have assisted on 15 of 16 FGs. In each of the first two games, Hawks only dished out 13asts.

Candace Buckner

ATL has the best Kiss Cam ringers

Michael Pointer

Did I just hear Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" from Phillips Arena? Great music choices in Atlanta.

Michael Pointer

Atlanta open second half with 11-4 run, leads 50-42 with 8:29 left in third. #pacers

Candace Buckner

Nice assist by @Kevin Pritchard to tell the couple behind him that they were on Kiss Cam. And since Marvin is playing, they better Get it On

Scott Agness

Great hesitation drive by Paul George for a second-chance bucket. The pause allowed him to get around the defender. Hawks 47-42.

Candace Buckner

Pero Antic looking like the Pero Antic vs everybody else in the NBA

Candace Buckner

PG gets his second bucket of the half (game) by going to the rim after the miss. But #Hawks still lead 47-42

Candace Buckner

Okay, so Two Chainz is here. I did recognize him. B/c game is so boring, @bkravitz suggested we sit here and play "Name That Rapper."

Conrad Brunner

Popeye at halftime: Offensively, got to find a better rhythm, get Paul going, keep pounding inside.

Conrad Brunner

Part of #Pacers problem is keeping game tempo slow while playing with high energy. Must play with patient urgency.

Michael Pointer

I know some people that would have gone absolutely crazy if Copeland had hit that 3. #pacers

Scott Agness

How bad was the second quarter? Pacers and Hawks combined for 29 points and 11-of-40 shooting, including 2-for-14 from outside. Oof.

Candace Buckner

David West 5-for-7 for 12 points. Earl foul trouble for Paul George and he's scoreless at the half

Scott Agness

Pacers trail the Hawks by one at the half, 39-38. Not bad considering Paul George hasn’t scored (but he does have 7rebs). West has 12pts.

Candace Buckner

The ATO play gives Copeland (yes! Copeland was in the game!) a great look beyond the arc but it misses. Half: #Hawks 39-38

Candace Buckner

#Pacers call timeout, will have 23 seconds on the shot clock (25.6 on the game) to get a good look. Go West, anyone?

Michael Pointer

West hits a one-handed runner in the lane to give Indiana its first lead at 38-37 with 54 seconds left in half. #pacers

Candace Buckner

And the #Pacers have the lead, courtesy of a David West move to the cup

Candace Buckner

I promise you, there's about 20 guys here who look like their album just went platinum. Don't recognize any of em as real rappers tho
